Full Text Available This paper proposes the space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM control scheme for three-phase voltage source PWM rectifier. The control system based on SVPWM includes two PI controllers which are used to regulate the AC currents and DC-link voltage. The proposed control can stabilize the minimum of the systems storage function at the desired equilibrium point determined by unity power factor and sinusoidal current on the AC side, and constant output voltage on the DC side. So the stable state performance and robustness against the load?s disturbance of PWM rectifiers are both improved. The simulation result shows feasibility of this strategy.

Full Text Available Pulse width modulation (PWM technique is one of the vital issues for power electronic circuit control. A number of Pulse width modulation (PWM techniques are increasingly applied in many new industrial applications that require superior performance. The most widely applied PWM technique for three-phase voltage source inverters are Sine Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM, Third Harmonic Injection Pulse Width Modulation (THIPWM and Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (SVPWM. SPWM is the most simple modulation technique that can realize easily in analog circuit. However, it has some drawbacks such as higher total harmonic distortion (THD, lower switching frequency and not capable in over modulation region. THIPWM and SVPWM both provide better THD compared to SPWM. SVPWM shows lower THD in over modulation region and in high frequency application compared to THIPWM. These three techniques are discussed, analyzed and compared in terms of modulation index, switching frequency and inverter input voltage in this paper. The modeling and simulation for all PWM techniques have been done by using MATLAB/SIMULINK and Origin 6.1. From the simulation results, SVPWM shows the best performance and meet IEEE 519 standard of current harmonics level.

Of all the alternative and renewable energy sources, wind power is the fastest growing alternative energy source with a total worldwide capacity of over 93 GW as of the end of 2007. However, making wind energy a sustainable and reliable source of electricity doesn't come without its set of challenges. As the wind turbines increase in size and turbine technology moves towards off-shore wind farms and direct drive transmission, the need for a reliable and efficient power electronics interface to convert the variable-frequency variable-magnitude output of the wind turbine's generator into the fixed-frequency fixed-magnitude voltage of the utility grid is critical. This dissertation investigates a power electronics interface envisioned to operate with an induction generator-based variable-speed wind turbine. The research conclusions and the interface itself are applicable to a variety of applications, including uninterruptible power supplies, industrial drives, and power quality applications, among others. The three-phase PWM rectifiers with ac-side bidirectional switches are proposed as the rectification stage of the power electronics interface. Modulation strategies are proposed for the rectifiers and the operation of the rectifiers in conjunction with an induction generator is demonstrated. The viability of using these rectifiers in place of the standard three-phase voltage-source converter is analyzed by comparing losses and common-mode voltage generation of the two topologies. Parallel three-phase voltage-source converter modules operated in an interleaved fashion are proposed for the inversion stage of the power electronics interface. The interleaved three-phase voltage-source converters are analyzed by deriving analytical models for the common-mode voltage, ac phase current, and dc-link current to reveal their spectra and the harmonic cancellation effects of interleaving. The practical problem of low frequency circulating current in parallel voltage-source converters is also analyzed. The low frequency circulating current characteristics of abc, dq, and nonlinear average current control are determined and experimental results for the nonlinear average current control are presented.

Current Tracking Control of Voltage Source PWM Inverters Using Adaptive Digital Signal Processing
Fukuda, Shoji; Furukawa, Yuya
An active filter (AF) is required to have a high control capability of tracking a time-varying current reference. However, a steady-state current error always exists if a conventional proportional and integral (PI) regulator is used because the current reference varies in time. This paper proposes the application of adaptive digital signal processing (ADSP) to the current control of voltage source PWM inverters. ADSP does not require any additional hardware. It can automatically minimize the mean square-error. Since the processing time available by a computer is limited, ADSP cannot eliminate higher order harmonics but can eliminate lower order harmonics such as 5th to 17th. Experimental results demonstrate that ADSP is useful for improving the reference tracking performance of voltage source inverters.

Analysis of Discontinuous Space Vector PWM Techniques for a Seven-Phase Voltage Source Inverter
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
Mohd. Arif Khan
2012-03-01
Full Text Available This paper presents discontinuous space vector PWM (DPWM techniques for a seven-phase voltage source inverter (VSI. Space vector model of a seven-phase VSI shows that there exist 128 space vectors with different lengths and maps into fourteen sided polygons. A number of possibilities could arise to implement modulation of inverter legs due to large number of available space voltage vectors. Two strategies are adopted here; one utilising large and two middle sets of space vectors to implement discontinuous space vector PWM. Clamping of legs of inverter to either positive or negative dc bus leads to discontinuity in the switching and consequently offers reduced switching loss modulation strategy. A significant reduction in switching losses can be achieved while employing DPWM in a seven-phase VSI. A generalised method is also proposed to realize the DPWM in a seven-phase VSI. Comparison of continuous and discontinuous PWM is presented in terms of switching current ripple. The experimental set-up is illustrated and the experimental results are presented.

With prevalence of information technology into our modern society and advance of automation technology in modern production process, the UPS market is assumed to make sustainable expansion. Error-Tracking-Mode PWM scheme offers novel constantly-sampled current-regulated switching algorithm to voltage-source power converters. This paper proposes a UPS in which Error-Tracking-Mode PWM scheme is applied to the current minor loop. The upper voltage control loop (ac-AVR) is developed afresh, that makes best of the PWM attributes. The equivalent output impedance of the UPS is derived theoretically for not only small signal but also large signal operation, that value can be arbitrarily specified by the ac-AVR parameters. A 3 kVA experimental setup was designed and fabricated, which has demonstrated the theoretical characteristics satisfactorily. The paper discusses the experimental results in detail. The authors believe that the paper presents a clue to realize independent and autonomic operation of dispersed PWM converters.

Full Text Available The performance analysis of three phase three wire voltage source inverter based unified power quality conditioner (UPQC with a control configuration is implemented in this paper. UPQC is utilized for power quality improvement at distribution level. The operation of UPQC combines the operations of series component Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR and shunt component Distribution Static Compensator (DSTATCOM together. The series component of the UPQC inserts voltage so as to maintain the voltage at the point of common coupling balanced and free of distortion. Simultaneously, the shunt component of the UPQC injects current into the system such that the currents entering the bus to which the UPQC is connected are balanced sinusoids. Both these objectives must be met irrespective of unbalance or distortion in either source or load sides. When UPQC is used in a power distribution system, the series and shunt active filters of the UPQC are made to operate in an effective and efficient unified manner. The control strategy should be able to reduce the negative effects of the variations in distorted supply voltage and the nonlinear load current. The control signals, generated by the various functional modules of the control design circuit Discrete Proportional IntegralController. Phase Locked Loop and Discrete Pulse Width Modulation Generator, will be the switching schemes for the series and shunt active filters of the UPQC to provide simultaneous shunt and series compensation in a power distribution system. The validation of performance analysis of three phase three wire voltage source inverter based unified power quality conditioner is verified through simulation inMatlab.

A New PWM Modifying Technique for Reconstructing Three-phase Currents from DC Bus Current
Aoyagi, Shigehisa; Iwaji, Yoshitaka; Tobari, Kazuaki; Sakamoto, Kiyoshi
Vector control is used to drive a DC brushless motor and generally needs current information. DC bus current detection is often adopted as a low cost method for reconstructing three-phase currents. PWM modifying techniques increase the DC pulse duration, thereby enabling easy detection of the DC bus current. However, these techniques have two problems: reducing a noise frequency and making the reconstructed current waveforms distorted by current ripple. In the techniques, modification signals are added to the three-phase voltage commands; the sum of the signals over a single cycle is zero. The authors examined several PWM modifying techniques from the points of view of noise and current distortion performance. One of the techniques had a good noise performance, and the frequency component of the noise was the same as the carrier frequency (fc). However, the reconstructed current waveforms were distorted. The total harmonic distortion (THD) varied from 1.7% to 4.1%. Another technique had a very poor noise performance, and the frequency component on the noise was one-fourth of fc. The authors developed a new PWM modifying method called â€œHalf Pulse Shiftâ€, which achieves the optimum noise and current distortion performance. The frequency component of the new method was two-thirds of fc, and the current waveforms were not distorted; the THD in the simulations and experiments was 0.5%-1.4% and 3.4%-3.6%, respectively.

Full Text Available Three phase induction motor has proven to be an extremely reliable electromechanical energy conversion device for over 100 years. The speed control of induction motor is a crying need for the real world industrial applications. However, there are so many options available for the precise speed control of induction motor except by changingthe frequency. Therefore to achieve the goal of speed control of induction motor, there is no alternative of inverters. With the availability of high speed power semiconductor devices, the three phase inverters play the key role for variable speed ac motor drives. In addition to the speed control, the inverter can also provide some unique features, like voltage control, torque control, power factor correction, auto breaking, built in protection system and so forth.In this paper, a three phases PWM inverter using MC3PHAC microcontroller with computer interface is proposed to run a squirrel case induction motor. Some results of the proposed inverter are presented.

A suitable pulse width modulation (PWM) technique is employed to obtain the required output voltage in the line side of the inverter. The different methods for PWM generation can be broadly classified into triangle comparison based PWM (TCPWM) and Space Vector based PWM (SVPWM). In TCPWM methods such as sine-triangle PWM, three phase ...

The equivalence of triangle-comparison-based pulse width modulation (TCPWM) and space vector based PWM (SVPWM) during linear modulation is well-known. This paper analyses triangle-comparison based PWM techniques (TCPWM) such as sine-triangle PWM (SPWM) and common-mode voltage injection PWM during overmodulation from a space vector point of view. The average voltage vector produced by TCPWM during overmodulation is studied in the stationary (aâ€“b) reference frame. This is compared and contrasted with the average voltage vector corresponding to the well-known standard two-zone algorithm for space vector modulated inverters. It is shown that the two-zone overmodulation algorithm itself can be derived from the variation of average voltage vector with TCPWM. The average voltage vector is further studied in a synchronously revolving (d-q) reference frame. The RMS value of low-order voltage ripple can be estimated, and can be used to compare harmonic distortion due to different PWM methods during overmodulation. The measured values of the total harmonic distortion (THD) in the line currents are presented at various fundamental frequencies. The relative values of measured current THD pertaining to different PWM methods tally with those of analytically evaluated RMS voltage ripple.
An Optimal PR Control Strategy with Load Current Observer for a Three-Phase Voltage Source Inverter

Full Text Available Inverter voltage control is an important task in the operation of a DC/AC microgrid system. To improve the inverter voltage control dynamics, traditional approaches attempt to measure and feedforward the load current, which, however, needs remote measurement with communications in a microgrid system with distributed loads. In this paper, a load current observer (LCO based control strategy, which does not need remote measurement, is proposed for sinusoidal signals tracking control of a three-phase inverter of the microgrid. With LCO, the load current is estimated precisely, acting as the feedforward of the dual-loop control, which can effectively enlarge the stability margin of the control system and improve the dynamic response to load disturbance. Furthermore, multiple PR regulators are applied in this strategy conducted in a stationary Â frame to suppress the transient fluctuations and the total harmonic distortion (THD of the output voltage and achieve faster transient performance compared with traditional dual-loop control in a rotating dq0 frame under instantaneous change of various types of load (i.e., balanced load, unbalanced load, and nonlinear load. The parameters of multiple PR regulators are analyzed and selected through the root locus method and the stability of the whole control system is evaluated and analyzed. Finally, the validity of the proposed approach is verified through simulations and a three-phase prototype test system with a TMS320F28335 DSP.

Full Text Available This paper presents the comparison of Unipolar Inverted Sine Carrier Pulse Width Modulation (UISCPWM techniques for the Cascaded Multi Level Inverter (CMLI. Due to switch combination redundancies, there are certain degrees of freedom to generate the multilevel AC output voltage. This paper presents the use of Control Freedom Degree (CFD combination. The effectiveness of the pulse width modulation strategies developed using CFD are demonstrated using simulation. The results indicate that the chosen five level inverter triggered by the developed UISC phase shift PWM and UISC variable frequency PWM strategy with sine and stepped wave references and UISC alternate phase opposition disposition PWM strategy with 60 degree reference exhibit reduced harmonics and UISC carrier overlapping PWM provides higher fundamental RMS output voltage for all three chosen references.

Full Text Available Power quality problems caused by significant increase of non-linear loads initiated intensive research in high power factor converters. Most of the modern power electronic systems like variable speed drives, DC power supplies and battery charging systems uses uncontrolled diode bridge rectifier. The uncontrolled rectifier system injects lot of harmonics in to the AC supply system there by reducing the power factor to less than unity. Single stage PWM rectifier is the novel solution to eliminate the harmonics and to improve the input power factor. In this paper, a scalar controlled PWM rectifier is modeled and the system is compared with the conventional bridge rectifier with and without filter.The major advantages of using this technique are less intensive computational control and sensor less input voltage operation. The PWM rectifier system is investigated using the different carrier and modulating signal. The scalar control technique is used to control the boost rectifier output voltage and input power factor. The performance of the rectifier with different carrier and modulating techniques were compared with respect to the Total Harmonic Distortion (THD in source current. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the modified modulating signal and triangular carrier signal for effectively reducing the source current THD.

This paper presents a three-phase PWM current source inverter-induction motor drive system with photovoltaic generation. The system is interacted to single-phase utility using PWM converter, and the photovoltaic arrays are connected to the dc link of the system by employing a step-down chopper. The chopper is operated on PWM switching, and contributes to maintain the maximum power of the arrays and to smooth the dc link current in the small dc reactor. The PWM converter can flow the power in bidirection between the system and the utility with a sinusoidal current in the ac side. In this paper, the system configuration and the control methods are shown. First of all, the PWM strategy of the chopper, which depends on the converter PWM operation, is explained in detail and the switching patterns are given. Next, the experimental and the theoretical results at the steady state operations are given, and it is shown that the use of the PWM chopper is effective for the improvement of the ac waveforms. Finally, the waveforms at the transient operation are given in the variable speed drive of the motor and the change of the sunlight quantity for the arrays. The results prove that the proposed system has good performances for the utilization of the photovoltaic power.

Full Text Available A voltage source inverter is commonly used to supply a three-phase induction motor with variable frequency and variable voltage for variable speed applications. A suitable pulse width modulation (PWM technique is employed to obtain the required output voltage in the line side of the inverter. The different methods for PWM generation can be broadly classified into triangle comparison based PWM (TCPWM and Space Vector based PWM (SVPWM. In TCPWM methods such as sine-triangle PWM, three phase reference modulating signals are compared against a common triangular carrier to generate the PWM signals for the three phases. In SVPWM methods, a revolving reference voltage vector is provided as voltage reference instead of three phase modulating waves. The magnitude and frequency of the fundamental component in the line side are controlled by the magnitude and frequency, respectively, of the reference vector. The highest possible peak phase fundamental is very less in sine triangle PWM when compared with space vector PWM. Space Vector Modulation (SVM technique has become the important PWM technique for three phase voltage source inverters for the control of AC Induction, Brushless DC, Switched Reluctance and Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors. The study of space vector modulation technique reveals that space vector modulation technique utilizes DC bus voltage more efficiently and generates less harmonic distortion when compared with Sinusoidal PWM (SPWM technique. In this paper first a model for Space vector PWM is made and simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK software and its performance is compared with Sinusoidal PWM. The simulation study reveals that Space vector PWM utilizes DC bus voltage more effectively and generates less THD when compared with sine PWM.

This paper is concerned with the design and implementation of current control of three-phase PWM rectifier based on predictive control strategy. The proposed predictive current control technique operates with constant switching frequency, using space-vector modulation (SVM). The main goal of the designed current control scheme is to maintain the dc-bus voltage at the required level and to achieve the unity power factor (UPF) operation of the converter. For this purpose, two predictive current control algorithms, in the sense of deadbeat control, are developed for direct controlling input current vector of the converter in the stationary Î±-Î² and rotating d-q reference frame, respectively. For both predictive current control algorithms, at the beginning of each switching period, the required rectifier average voltage vector allowing the cancellation of both tracking errors of current vector components at the end of the switching period, is computed and applied during a predefined switching period by means of SVM. The main advantages of the proposed predictive current control are that no need to use hysteresis comparators or PI controllers in current control loops, and constant switching frequency. Finally, the developed predictive current control algorithms were tested both in simulations and experimentally, and illustrative results are presented here. Results have proven excellent performance in steady and transient states, and verify the validity of the proposed predictive current control which is compared to other control strategies.

In this paper a new control strategy for voltage-source converters (VSC) is introduced. The proposed strategy consists of a nonlinear feedback controller based on feedback linearization plus a feedforward compensation of the estimated load current. In our proposal an energy function and the direct-axis current are considered as outputs, in order to avoid the internal dynamics. In this way, a full linearization is obtained via nonlinear transformation and feedback. An estimate of the load current is feedforwarded to improve the performance of the whole system and to diminish the capacitor size. This estimation allows to obtain a more rugged and cheaper implementation. The estimate is calculated by using a nonlinear reduced-order observer. The proposal is validated through different tests. These tests include performance in presence of switching frequency, measurement filters delays, parameters uncertainties and disturbances in the input voltage. (author)

This paper proposes direct power control (DPC) for three-phase PWM rectifiers using a new switching table, without line voltage sensors. The instantaneous active and reactive powers, directly controlled by selecting the optimum state of the converter, are used as the PWM control variables instead of the phase line currents being used. The main goal of the control system is to maintain the dc-bus voltage at the required level, while input currents drawn from the power supply should be sinusoidal and in phase with respective phase voltages to satisfy the unity power factor (UPF) operation. Conventional PI and a designed fuzzy logic-based controller, in the dc-bus voltage control loop, have been used to provide active power command. A dSPACE based experimental system was developed to verify the validity of the proposed DPC. The steady-state, and dynamic results illustrating the operation and performance of the proposed control scheme are presented. As a result, it was confirmed that the novel DPC is much better than the classical one. Line currents very close to sinusoidal waveforms (THD < 2%) and good regulation of dc-bus voltage are achieved using PI or fuzzy controller. Moreover, fuzzy logic controller gives excellent performance in transient state, a good rejection of impact load disturbance, and a good robustness

Fuzzy logic controller used for Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technique to control Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) for switching power electronics circuit. DC-DC boost converter used to boost up photovoltaic voltage to desired output and supply voltage source inverter which controlled by three-phase PWM generated by microcontroller. IGBT switched Voltage source inverter (VSI) produced alternating current (AC) voltage from direct current (DC) source to control speed of three-phase induction motor from boost converter output. Results showed that, the output power of solar module is optimized and controlled by using fuzzy logic controller. Besides that, the three-phase induction motor can be drive and control using VSI switching by the PWM signal generated by the fuzzy logic controller. This concluded that the non-linear system can be controlled and used in driving three-phase induction motor.

This paper presents a new circuit topology of full-bridge soft-switching PWM inverter linked DC-DC power converter composed of conventional full-bridge high frequency PWM inverter with high frequency transformer and an active quasi-resonant snubber consisting of an additional power switching device in series with DC busline and a lossless capacitor in parallel with DC busline. Under this proposed high frequency soft-switching PWM inverter linked DC-DC converter, four power switches in the full-bridge arms and DC busline series switch can achieve ZVS at turn-off commutation. By developing the advanced soft-switching PWM high frequency inverter type DC-DC converter, although the conduction power loss of DC busline series power switch increases a little, the total turn-off switching loss of full-bridge high frequency inverter power modules can be sufficiently lowered more and more in the higher frequency range of 60kHz. As a result, when the switching frequency of high frequency inverter power stage using IGBT power modules is designed so as to be more than about 10kHz, the more the switching frequency of inverter increases, the more this high frequency soft-switching DC-DC converter has remarkable advantage as for the power conversion efficiency as compared with the conventional hard-switching PWM inverter DC-DC converter. Its practical effectiveness of high power density and high performance is actually proved for TIG arc welding equipment in industry.

In three-phase squirrel-cage ac traction motor, temperature-rise calculation during variable-voltage and variable-frequency starting is of vital importance and has to be predicted and critically examined. Under voltage source inverter supply with PWM, the generation of harmonics by inverter supply reduces the output during starting due to higher harmonic losses, thereby reducing the starting tractive effort in kN on locomotive wheel. Stator and rotor temperature-rises during starting have been determined for average acceleration torque in segmental zone (calculated from variable acceleration) which have been presented in the paper with both copper and aluminium alloy rotor bars.

Full Text Available The main aim of this study is to control a multivariable coupled system by choosing sliding mode switching function. A Sliding mode control approach is developed to control a three phase three wire voltage source inverter operating as a shunt active power filter. Hence, no need to divide the system model developed in the synchronous â€˜dqâ€™ reference frame into two separate loops. Furthermore, the proposed control strategy allows a better stability and robustness over a wide range of operation. When sine PWM is used for generation of pulses for the switches, a variable switching nature is exhibited. The pulses for the active filter are fed by a Space Vector Modulation in order to have a constant switching of converter switches. But, the conventional space vector modulation, if implemented practically, needs a complicated algorithm which uses the trigonometric functions such as arctan, Sine and Cosine functions which in turn needs look up tables to store the pre-calculated trigonometric values. In this study, a very simplified algorithm is proposed for generating Space vector modulated pulse for all six switches without the use of look up tables and only by sensing the voltages and currents of the voltage source inverter acting as shunt active filter. The simulation using PSIM and MATLAB software verifies the results very well.

The advent of the transformerless multilevel inverter topology has brought forth various pulsewidth modulation (PWM) schemes as a means to control the switching of the active devices in each of the multiple voltage levels in the inverter. An analysis of how existing multilevel carrier-based PWM affects switch utilization for the different levels of a diode-clamped inverter is conducted. Two novel carrier-based multilevel PWM schemes are presented which help to optimize or balance the switch utilization in multilevel inverters. A 10-kW prototype six-level diode-clamped inverter has been built and controlled with the novel PWM strategies proposed in this paper to act as a voltage-source inverter for a motor drive.

Full Text Available Hysteresis current control is one of the simplest techniques used to control the magnitude and phase angle of motor current for motor drives systems. However, this technique presents several disadvantages such as operation at variable switching frequency which can reveal problems of filtering, interference between the phases in the case of the three-phase systems with insulated neutral connection or delta connection, and irregularity of the modulation pulses which especially causes an acoustic noise on the level of the machine for the high power drive. In this paper, a new technique is proposed for a variable-hysteresis-band controller based on dead beat control applied to three phase voltage source PWM inverters feeding AC motors. Its main aim is firstly ensure a constant switching frequency and secondly the synchronization of modulation pulses using the phase-locked-loop with loop gain compensation in order to ensure a better stability. The behavior of the proposed technique is verified by simulation.

1982-01-01
This paper describes the development of a transistorized PWM inverter-induction motor traction drive system. A vehicle performance analysis was performed to establish the vehicle tractive effort-speed requirements. These requirements were then converted into a set of inverter and motor specifications. The inverter was a transistorized three-phase bridge using General Electric power Darlington transistors. The description of the design and development of this inverter is the principal object of this paper. The high-speed induction motor is a design which is optimized for use with an inverter power source. The primary feedback control is a torque angle control with voltage and torque outer loop controls. A current-controlled PWM technique is used to control the motor voltage. The drive has a constant torque output with PWM operation to base motor speed and a constant horsepower output with square wave operation to maximum speed. The drive system was dynamometer tested and the results are presented.

2014-03-01
Full Text Available This paper presents the implementation of indirect vector control of three phase Induction Motor using Hysteresis Band PWM current control and Synchronous Current Control in PSIM environment. In any machine drive system, current control directly influences both flux and torque developed directly. In Hysteresis current control method, actual current tracks the command current within a hysteresis band. There is no difficulty in current control tracking when CEMF is low, but at higher speeds, current controller gets saturated due to higher CEMF and hense becomes difficult to track due to which there will be a phase lag with respect to command current. All such problems are solved using Synchronous Current Control.

Common-Mode Voltage Characteristics of Matrix Converter According to PWM Method
Hara, Hidenori; Yamamoto, Eiji; Yamada, Kenji; Yamanaka, Katsutoshi; Zenke, Michihiko; Kang, Jun-Koo; Kume, Tsuneo Joe
The matrix converter (MxC) is an ac-to-ac conversion device that can generate variable magnitude variable frequency output voltage. Nine bi-directional switches of MxC allow PWM control of output voltages and input currents. PWM switching needs â€œswitch commutationsâ€ from one switch to another. During the switch commutations, however, unwanted voltage error occurs similar to the dead time effects in Voltage Source Inverter (VSI). When PWM pulse width is narrower than the time required for the commutation, voltage error increases rapidly. This voltage distortion is critical in the low speed operation as system becomes sensitive to even a small voltage error. In this paper, a new PWM strategy is proposed for improving voltage control performance in the low voltage region. Based on the input and output voltage information, PWM pulse-widths are controlled to avoid incomplete commutations. The feasibility of the proposed method is proved by simulation and experimental results. In addition, common mode voltage characteristics of MxC are discussed. Common-mode voltage and dv/dt cause motor bearing and ground leakage currents through the parasitic capacitances. Leakage current creates noise problems that can interfere with other equipment. Common-mode voltage characteristics of MxC are presented and discussed using two PWM methods. Simulated and experimental results are presented. Common-mode voltage of two-level VSI and MxC are also compared.

EIT can be performed by applying currents through the electrodes and measuring the electrode voltages or by applying electrode voltages and measuring the currents. Techniques have also been developed for applying the desired currents using voltage sources. This paper describes a voltage source for use in applied-voltage EIT that includes the capability of measuring both the applied voltage and applied current. A calibration circuit and calibration algorithm are described which enables all voltage sources in an EIT system to be calibrated to a common standard. The calibration minimizes the impact of stray shunt impedance, passive component variability and active component non-ideality.

Voltage Source Inverter/Converter for the Improvement of Power Quality Using Fuzzy Logic Controller

2014-05-01
Full Text Available In recent years, the applications of power electronics have grown tremendously. These power electronic systems offer highly nonlinear characteristics. To overcome those non linearities active power filters are preferred. This paper presents and compares the performance of two controllers namely Fuzzy Logic and Proportional Integral (PI applied to a voltage source inverter / converter which operates as an active power filter. The active power filter is operated to compensate harmonics generated by the non-linear load . This work is done to make an accurate comparison of the performance of fuzzy logic controller and classical control technique such as PI controller in compensating harmonics in the ac mains current. Fuzzy control rule design is based on the general dynamic behavior of the process. A novel control method is implemented for suppressing the harmonics. The compensation process is instantaneous, which is achieved without employing any complicated control logic. The control scheme is based on sensing line currents only; an approach different from convention ones, which are based on sensing harmonics of the nonlinear load. In the control scheme a hysteresis controller based on current control is employed to generate switching signals to the PWM converter.

Full Text Available Numerous industrial applications involve loads that are very sensitive to electrical supply instabilities. These instances involve various types of voltage imbalances as well as more serious disturbances such as symmetrical and asymmetrical faults. This paper proposes a cost-effective voltage imbalance and asymmetrical fault correction solution for the three phase sensitive loads utilizing an industry-standard current regulated voltage source inverter by connecting it in parallel to the grid mains powering to the sensitive load. The inverter regulates the current for the load and never permits it to go beyond a prescribed value under any type of asymmetrical fault condition, which ensures high power regulating and conditioning capacities. Experimental results are obtained from a small laboratory size prototype to validate the operation of the proposed technique.

The pulse width modulated (PWM) inverter is widely used to feed small induction motors for variable speed and torque control. When a laminated stator core is energised in this way additional iron losses occur due to localised distorted flux. Flux density and power loss distribution under PWM and sinusoidal voltage excitations were measured in a typical induction motor stator core lamination at 1.3 T, 50 Hz by using a computer-aided magnetising system to set up flux distribution as would occur in a practical three-phase stator core. The iron loss increased 15-20% under PWM excitation. The loss increase under PWM excitation in the stator core laminations was 3% lower than in Epstein strips of the same electrical steel under the same conditions showing an effect of the magnetic circuit geometry.

Full Text Available This work shows that the direct PWM output electric signal, with a duty cycle controlled by light intensity, can beobtained using a circuit containing a saw-tooth voltage generator connected in series with a dc voltage source and ametal (semitransparent gate oxide semiconductor capacitor (MOS-C.The internal PWM signal conversion occurs by the use of non-equilibrium physical processes in the semiconductorsubstrate of the MOS-C. The 10-20 V amplitude limited square PWM output signal is obtained by the amplification ofthe sensor signal with a standard 60 dB transimpedance amplifier. The amplified output signal presents positive andnegative PWM waveforms that can be easily separated using diodes. The duty of the positive part is proportional tothe light intensity, whereas the negative part is inversely proportional to the intensity. The frequency operating rangeof this proposed instrument varies from 1 Hz to a few kilohertz. The duty cycle of the PWM output signal varies from2% to 98% when the incident light intensity varies in the microwatts range. These new transducers or sensors couldbe useful for automatic control, robotic applications, dimmer systems, feedback electronic systems, and non-contactoptical position sensing for nulling and centering measurements.

This paper presents a technique for speed control three-phase induction motor using the pulse width modulation (PWM), in open loop while maintaining the tension for constant frequency. The technique is adapted from a thesis entitled 'Control of the three-phase induction motor, using discrete PWM generation, optimized and synchronized', where studies are presented aimed at their application in home appliances, to eliminate mechanical parts, replaced by low cost electronic control, thus having a significant reduction in power consumption. Initially the experiment was done with the Intel 80C31 micro controller. In this paper, the PWM modulation is implemented using a PIC micro controller, and the speed control kept a low profile, based on tables, synchronized with transitions and reduced generation of harmonics in the network. Confirmations were made using the same process of building tables, but takes advantage of the program of a RISC device.

2010-06-01
A highly stable, low-noise voltage source was designed to improve the stability of the electrode bias voltages of a Penning trap. To avoid excess noise and ground loops, the voltage source is completely independent of the public electric network and uses a 12 V car battery to generate output voltages of +/-15 and +/-5 V. First, the dc supply voltage is converted into ac-voltage and gets amplified. Afterwards, the signal is rectified, filtered, and regulated to the desired output value. Each channel can deliver up to 1.5 A. The current as well as the battery voltage and the output voltages can be read out via a universal serial bus (USB) connection for monitoring purposes. With the presented design, a relative voltage stability of 7 x 10(-7) over 6.5 h and a noise level equal or smaller than 30 nV/square root(Hz) is achieved. PMID:20590260

A motor controller for a three phase AC motor (10) which is adapted to operate bidirectionally from signals received either from a computer (30) or a manual control (32). The controller is comprised of digital logic circuit means which implement a forward and reverse command signal channel (27, 29) for the application of power through the forward and reverse power switching relays (16, 18, 20, 22). The digital logic elements are cross coupled to prevent activation of both channels simultaneously and each includes a plugging circuit (65, 67) for stopping the motor upon the removal of control signal applied to one of the two channels (27, 29) for a direction of rotation desired. Each plugging circuit (65, 67) includes a one-shot pulse signal generator (88, 102) which outputs a single pulse signal of predetermined pulsewidth which is adapted to inhibit further operation of the application of power in the channel which is being activated and to apply a reversal command signal to the other channel which provides a reversed phase application of power to the motor for a period defined by the pulse-width output of the one-shot signal generator to plug the motor (10) which will then be inoperative until another rotational command signal is applied to either of the two channels.
Mitigation of Lower Order Harmonics with Filtered Svpwm In Multiphase Voltage Source Inverters
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
K. Uday Kiran
2014-08-01
Full Text Available Multi-phase machines and drives is a topic of growing relevance in recent years, and it presents many challenging issues that still need further research. This is the case of multi-phase space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM, which shows not only more space vectors than the standard three-phase case, but also new subspaces where the space vectors are mapped. In the digital implementation, multiphase reference voltages are sampled and fed into the digital modulator to produce gating signals at a constant clock rate f. This means a finite pulse-width resolution because the gating state transition can only occur at some specific time instants depending on frequency. This results in a deviation of produced phase voltages from the desired phase voltages, i.e., increasing harmonic distortion especially for a small modulation index signal. In the present paper a filtered space-vector pulse-width modulation (SVPWM considering finite pulse-width resolution is proposed to produce a switching sequence with reduced baseband harmonics for multiphase voltage source inverters (VSI. This is achieved by incorporating a pseudo feedback loop regarding weighted voltage difference between desired and produced phase voltages.

Direct Space Vector PWM Strategy for Matrix Converters with Reduced Number of Switching Transitions
Tadano, Yugo; Hamada, Shizunori; Urushibata, Shota; Nomura, Masakatsu; Sato, Yukihiko; Ishida, Muneaki
This paper proposes a novel â€œDirect Space Vector PWM (Direct SVPWM)â€ strategy based on the direct AC/AC conversion approach for three-phase to three-phase matrix converters. This method allows the sine input and sine output waveforms as a major premise, and gives top priority to the improvement of the output control performance in motor drive applications, for instance, provides maximum riding comfort for an elevator, etc. Output voltage harmonics, switching losses, and common-mode voltage can be reduced across the entire voltage region. In addition, the switching count can be reduced even further by fully utilizing the output current detection value. Direct space vectors are first defined, and the selection method of space vectors is described. Next, the PWM duty calculation technique is explained. Finally, the validity of the proposed method is proven from the comparison with the conventional virtual indirect method based on the experimental and analysis results.

Full Text Available Cualquier sistema de instrumentación consiste de tres elementos: el sensor o dispositivo de entrada, el procesador de señales, y el receptor o dispositivo de salida. Diversos sistemas de control automático o con retroalimentación requieren una señal eléctrica de salida en forma de pulsos con modulac [...] ión en su ancho (PWM). Generalmente la señal analógica de salida se transforma usando un convertidor de señal PWM. En este trabajo se muestra que una señal de salida PWM, con una razón ancho-de-pulso/período (duty cycle) controlado por la intensidad de la iluminación, puede obtenerse directamente utilizando un circuito que contiene un capacitor metal (compuerta semitransparente) -óxido-semiconductor (MOS-C) conectado en serie con una fuente de DC y un generador de funciones que proporciona un voltaje periódico en forma de dientes de sierra. Internamente, la conversión de señal a PWM se logra explotando los procesos físicos fuera de equilibrio que se presentan dentro del sustrato de silicio del MOS-C. La señal cuadrada PWM, cuya amplitud está limitada a 10-20 V, se obtiene mediante la amplificación de la señal de transductor usando un amplificador estándar de transimpedancia de 60 dB. La señal de salida amplificada presenta una forma de onda PWM positiva y negativa que pueden separarse usando diodos. La razón ancho-de-pulso/período de la parte positiva es proporcional a la intensidad de la iluminación, mientras que la parte negativa es inversamente proporcional a dicha intensidad. La frecuencia de operación de este instrumento se encuentra en el rango de 1 Hz hasta algunos kilohertz. La razón ancho-de-pulso/período de la señal de salida PWM varía entre 2 y 98% cuando la potencia de la iluminación es del orden de microwatts. Este nuevo transductor o sensor podría ser útil para aplicaciones en control automático, en robótica, control de iluminación, sistemas de retroalimentación, y para la detección óptica de posición sin contacto para mediciones de centrado y anulación. Finalmente, se presenta una descripción detallada de los principios físicos y de operación de este nuevo transductor. Abstract in english This work shows that the direct PWM output electric signal, with a duty cycle controlled by light intensity, can be obtained using a circuit containing a saw-tooth voltage generator connected in series with a dc voltage source and a metal (semitransparent gate) oxide semiconductor capacitor (MOS-C). [...] The internal PWM signal conversion occurs by the use of non-equilibrium physical processes in the semiconductor substrate of the MOS-C. The 10-20 V amplitude limited square PWM output signal is obtained by the amplification of the sensor signal with a standard 60 dB transimpedance amplifier. The amplified output signal presents positive and negative PWM waveforms that can be easily separated using diodes. The duty of the positive part is proportional to the light intensity, whereas the negative part is inversely proportional to the intensity. The frequency operating range of this proposed instrument varies from 1 Hz to a few kilohertz. The duty cycle of the PWM output signal varies from 2% to 98% when the incident light intensity varies in the microwatts range. These new transducers or sensors could be useful for automatic control, robotic applications, dimmer systems, feedback electronic systems, and non-contact optical position sensing for nulling and centering measurements.

Full Text Available This paper proposes an improved design to calculate the snubber auxiliary elements of ZVT DC-DC PWM converters with snubber assisted auxiliary switch. The proposed improved design guidelines are based on the reduction of the conduction losses through the auxiliary circuit. It is accomplished by the unique location of the turn-off snubber capacitor, which is shared by both active switches. By means of this improved design guidelines the converter efficiency can be increased. An efficiency comparative analysis is carried out and the experimental results, obtained from 1 kW, 100 kHz laboratory prototypes, show a relevant improvement in converter efficiency compared to the original converter design.

The presented mathematical preliminaries for both SPWM and ISCPWM give a conceptual understanding and a comparison of the strategies. The detailed comparison of the harmonic content and fundamental component of the ISCPWM output for different values of modulation index with the results obtained for the SPWM is also presented.

Multiphase variable speed drives are nowadays regarded as serious contenders for various applications, due to the certain advantages that they possess when compared to threephase drives. On the other hand, the multilevel (predominantly three-level) voltage source inverter (VSI) has become an industrially accepted technology for medium-voltage three-phase drives. The logical next step is to integrate multilevel VSI and multiphase drive technologies, since benefits of each can then be combined....

Three-Phase Power-Factor Controller develops a control signal for each motor winding. As motor loading decreases, rms value of applied voltage is decreased by feedback-control circuit. Power consumption is therefore lower than in unregulated operation. Controller employs phase detector for each of three phases of delta-connected induction motor. Phase-difference sum is basis for control.

Full Text Available Uses of Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generators (PMSG are increasing in variable speed micro-Wind Energy Conversion Systems (WECS. In stand-alone or grid-connected Micro-WECS, extraction of maximum power is vital. To extract maximum power output and to obtain a constant DC bus voltage from variable magnitude and variable frequency voltage output of PMSG and generally a two stage scheme namely i conventional diode bridge rectifier and ii DC-DC Boost/Buck/Buck-Boost converters are used. In this study, a single stage Scalar Controlled PWM (SCPWM Boost Rectifier is proposed in order to minimize the current harmonics and to improve the power factor on source side. The modeling and simulation of PMSG based wind generator and SCPWM Boost rectifier was developed in MATLAB. The harmonic content in the input current waveform of the proposed SCPWM rectifier is compared with the conventional three-phase bridge rectifier. The Simulation results show the effectiveness of the PWM Boost rectifier in terms of effective utilization of source, improved efficiency and harmonic mitigation for PMSG based Wind Generator. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed system in reducing the current and voltage THD on source side.
PWM Inverter control and the application thereof within electric vehicles
Geppert, Steven (Bloomfield Hills, MI)

An inverter (34) which provides power to an A.C. machine (28) is controlled by a circuit (36) employing PWM control strategy whereby A.C. power is supplied to the machine at a preselectable frequency and preselectable voltage. This is accomplished by the technique of waveform notching in which the shapes of the notches are varied to determine the average energy content of the overall waveform. Through this arrangement, the operational efficiency of the A.C. machine is optimized. The control circuit includes a micro-computer and memory element which receive various parametric inputs and calculate optimized machine control data signals therefrom. The control data is asynchronously loaded into the inverter through an intermediate buffer (38). In its preferred embodiment, the present invention is incorporated within an electric vehicle (10) employing a 144 VDC battery pack (32) and a three-phase induction motor (18).

We have performed comparative studies of Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (SVPWM) and Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM) techniques utilizing MATLAB tools. During these investigations, we carried out intensive simulations, comprehensively analyzed the obtained results and compared the harmonic density, power factor (PF), and switching losses of SVPWM and SPWM. It has been observed during investigations that if the switching frequency is high then losses due to harmonics are negligible, thus based on obtained results we suggested that the SVPWM technique is a more reliable solution. Because SVPWM utilizes DC bus voltage more efficiently, generates less Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) and has higher output quality it provides flexible control of output voltage and output frequency for Variable Speed Drive (VSD)

In this paper, a new control method based on pulse width modulation (PWM) technique is presented for direct three-phase to single-phase converters. This control method can be easily developed to direct three-phase to n-phase converters based on the exact principle of operation. The results of the proposed control method have been presented for two conventional topologies of direct three-phase to single-phase converters with four and six power switches. The suggested control method does not depend on the balanced or unbalanced input voltages. In balanced operation, the maximum output/input voltage transfer ratios are 0.5 and 1.5 for converters with four and six power switches, respectively. Also, the proposed method has no restrictions in frequency transformation. Another advantage of the proposed control method in comparison with the conventional control methods is dv/dt reduction in switches and loads. The operation and performance of the proposed control method has been verified by the simulation and experimental results.

This paper introduces a theory for a space vector modulation of a three-phase four-quadrant PWM rectifier (FQR). The presented vector modulation method is simple to realize with a microcontroller and it replaces the conventional modulation methods based on the analog technology. The FQR may be used to supply directly a dc load, e.g. a dc machine. The vector modulated FQR is tested in simulations supplying a 4.5 kW dc motor. The simulations show the benefits of the vector modulated FQR against thyristor converters: the supply currents are sinusoidal and the displacement power factor of the supply can be controlled. Furthermore the load current is smooth. (author)
PWM Switching Strategy for Torque Ripple Minimization in BLDC Motor
Salah, Wael A.; Ishak, Dahaman; Hammadi, Khaleel J.
2011-05-01
This paper describes a new PWM switching strategy to minimize the torque ripples in BLDC motor which is based on sensored rotor position control. The scheme has been implemented using a PIC microcontroller to generate a modified Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) signals for driving power inverter bridge. The modified PWM signals are successfully applied to the next up-coming phase current such that its current rise is slightly delayed during the commutation instant. Experimental results show that the current waveforms of the modified PWM are smoother than that in conventional PWM technique. Hence, the output torque exhibits lower ripple contents.
High performance predictive current control of a three phase VSI: An experimental assessment

Delay has a significant role to play in the implementation of the predictive current control scheme as large amount of calculations are involved. Compensating delay in the predictive current controller design can lead to an improved load current total harmonic distortion (THD) and also an increased switching frequency. Minimization of switching frequency while maintaining the lower value of load current THD requires multiple objective optimization which is achieved by optimizing a single objective function, constructed using weighting factors as a linear combination of individual objective function. The effect of weighting factor on the switching frequency minimization and the current tracking error with delay compensation for the two level voltage source inverter (VSI) are investigated in this paper. The outcomes of the predictive current control using an optimized weighting factor which is calculated using branch and bound algorithm with the delay compensation are compared with the PWM based current control scheme. The experimental tests are conducted on a 2.2 kW VSI to verify the simulation observations.

Novel PWM Modifying Method for Detecting DC-bus Current to Facilitate Noise Adaptation
Arakawa, Yoichiro; Aoyagi, Shigehisa; Nagata, Koichiro; Arao, Yusuke
A well-known problem encountered while using method for the detection of DC-bus current in order to reconstruct three-phase-currents is the short DC pulse duration. In order to increase the pulse duration, several PWM modifying methods have been proposed. “Half Pulse Shift method (HPS)“ is one of the promising methods that are both robust to detection error caused by current ripple and offer the advantage of low acoustic noise. In general, common-mode noise current affects DC-bus current and causes detection error, therefore, pulse duration increased by using the PWM modifying method is longer than the decay time of the common-mode noise. This decay time is dependent on the electrical environment, especially on the power -supply cable from the inverter to the motor. Although the pulse duration required to avoid common-mode noise can be estimated, this pulse duration is limited by the controllable range of output voltages. In this paper, a new PWM modifying method in order to ease the limit of the pulse duration is proposed. The results of numerical analysis confirmed that by using the proposed method the operation area over which current can detected is broadened. From the experimental results, it is confirmed that the proposed method guarantees stable operation and robustness for noisy environments.

Rheology of Three-Phase Magmas

2012-04-01
Luigi Burlini was a conscious supervisor, a brilliant teacher and a dear friend. He instilled in me optimism and passion for research. His scientific eclecticism to combine several disciplines and methodologies to challenge and solve science issues has enhanced my approach of analysis and observation. His "simple" curiosity to test new scientific pathways and truly know the validity of own proposals represents my primary inspiration to continue the academic career. He was the far-seeing and carpe diem man at the same time; from this I learnt to live intensively day by day without forgetting what will be next. The work I will present is dedicated to him. We present experimental results from a study mainly aiming to constrain the dependence of rheology of three-phase magmas (ranging from dilute suspensions to crystal mushes) on the viscosity of the suspending silicate melt, on the relative contents of crystals and bubbles and on the interactions occurring between the three phases during deformation. Hydrous haplogranitic magmas containing variable amounts of quartz crystals (between 24 and 65 vol%), and fixed bubble volume (9-12 vol% CO2-rich bubbles) were deformed in simple shear with a Paterson-type rock deformation apparatus at high temperature (823-1023 K) and high pressure (200 MPa), in strain-rate stepping (5•10-5 s-1 - 4•10-3 s-1) from low to high deformation rate. The rheological results suggest that three-phase suspensions are characterized by strain rate-dependent rheology (non-Newtonian behavior). Two kinds of non-Newtonian behaviors were observed: shear thinning (decrease of viscosity with increasing strain rate) and shear thickening (increase of viscosity with increasing strain rate). Microstructural observations suggest that: shear thinning dominantly occurs in crystal-rich magmas (55-65 vol% crystals) because of crystal size reduction and shear localization; shear thickening prevails in dilute suspensions (24-44 vol% crystals) due to outgassing promoted by bubble coalescence.

Studer, P. A. (inventor)
1977-01-01
A three phase decoder for dc motors is disclosed which employs an extremely simple six transistor circuit to derive six properly phased output signals for fullwave operation of dc motors. Six decoding transistors are coupled at their base-emitter junctions across a resistor network arranged in a delta configuration. Each point of the delta configuration is coupled to one of three position sensors which sense the rotational position of the motor. A second embodiment of the invention is disclosed in which photo-optical isolators are used in place of the decoding transistors.
Structured catalysts in complex three phase hydrogenation

The development of structured catalysts and reactor selection is an actively researched area in catalytic reaction engineering. The catalyst, its preparation, morphology, activity, active centers, kinetics and deactivation are inseparable from the choice of a catalytic reactor. A variety of alternative solutions are available, such as metallic and ceramic monolith structures, micro reactors, and catalytic fibers, and various knitted and woven cloths. The interest lies in the fact that one wants to overcome the disadvantages of slurry catalysts and large catalyst pellets used in classical fixed beds. The major disadvantages of using slurry catalysts are the need to separate the product from the catalyst after the reaction, catalyst attrition and reactor scale-up. Until this moment, the cost, the limitations in catalyst loading as well as the lack of experience and demonstrations in industrial scale have limited the use of structured catalysts. In this thesis, the potential of structured catalysts in complex three-phase hydrogenation was explored. Polymer-supported fibers, monoliths and active carbon fiber cloth were utilized in citral hydrogenation, which was selected as a model reaction, to investigate the performance of the differently structured catalytic systems. The possibility to prepare the catalysts, to some extent characterize and use them in the synthesis of fine chemicals was demonstrated. A commercial slurry catalyst was used with different catalyst particle size to represent the traditional slurry and fixed bed catalysts used in industry. Furthermore, a kinetic model was proposed from (intrinsic kinetic) experiments with the slurry catalyst. The effect of internal diffusion on the activity and selectivity in complex three-phase hydrogenation was studied experimentally and modeled numerically. The model described well the behavior of the system and can be used to predict the changes of activities and selectivities as the operation conditions (pressure, concentration, particle size) are altered. Thus, the model is applicable for studies on reaction intensification. Additionally, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) was used to investigate the flow pattern and flow distribution in a recirculating monolith reactor system designed for catalytic three-phase processes.

Full Text Available This paper presents a novel structure for a three- phase four-wire (3P4W distribution system utilizing unified power quality conditioner (UPQC. The 3P4W system is realized from a three-phase three-wire system where the neutral of series transformer used in series part UPQC is considered as the fourth wire for the 3P4W system. A new control strategy to balance the unbalanced load currents is also presented in this paper. The neutral current that may flow toward transformer neutral point is compensated by using a four-leg voltage source inverter topology for shunt part. Thus, the series transformer neutral will be at virtual zero potential during all operating conditions. The simulation results based on MATLAB/Simulink are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed UPQC-based 3P4W distribution system.

Active damping and harmonic compensation are two common challenges faced by LCL-filtered voltage source converters. To manage them holistically, this paper begins by proposing a virtual RC damper in parallel with the passive filter capacitor. The virtual damper is actively inserted by feeding back the passive capacitor current through a high-pass filter, which indirectly, furnishes two superior features.

Current sources are widely used in bio-impedance spectroscopy (BIS) measurement systems to maximize current injection for increased signal to noise while keeping within medical safety specifications. High-performance current sources based on the Howland current pump with optimized impedance converters are able to minimize stray capacitance of the cables and setup. This approach is limited at high frequencies primarily due to the deteriorated output impedance of the constant current source when situated in a real measurement system. For this reason, voltage sources have been suggested, but they require a current sensing resistor, and the SNR reduces at low impedance loads due to the lower current required to maintain constant voltage. In this paper, we compare the performance of a current source-based BIS and a voltage source-based BIS, which use common components. The current source BIS is based on a Howland current pump and generalized impedance converters to maintain a high output impedance of more than 1?M? at 2?MHz. The voltage source BIS is based on voltage division between an internal current sensing resistor (Rs) and an external sample. To maintain high SNR, Rs is varied so that the source voltage is divided more or less equally. In order to calibrate the systems, we measured the transfer function of the BIS systems with several known resistor and capacitor loads. From this we may estimate the resistance and capacitance of biological tissues using the least-squares method to minimize error between the measured transimpedance excluding the system transfer function and that from an impedance model. When tested on realistic loads including discrete resistors and capacitors, and saline and agar phantoms, the voltage source-based BIS system had a wider bandwidth of 10 Hz to 2.2 MHz with less than 1% deviation from the expected spectra compared to more than 10% with the current source. The voltage source also showed an SNR of at least 60 dB up to 2.2 MHz in comparison to the current source-based BIS system where the SNR drops below 40 dB for frequencies greater than 1 MHz.

This paper describes a line-interactive single-phase to three-phase converter. The typical application is in rural areas supplied by the single-wire with earth return. The traditional objective of feeding a three-phase induction motor is not anymore the main concern for such conversion. Due to the evolution of the agro business, some of the local load (as electronic power converters, computers, communication equipment, etc.) requires high quality power, intended as sinusoidal, symmetrical and balanced three-phase voltage. Additionally, to maximize the power got from the feeder, the system provides a unitary power factor to the feeder. A three-phase PWM converter is used for this purpose. The power converter does not process all the load power, as in the conventional solutions, but only the fraction necessary to regulate the three-phase bus voltage. The control strategy, design highlights and experimental results are presented. (author)

Apparatus and method for heat-run test on high-power PWM converters with low energy expenditure
Indian Academy of Sciences (India)
J S Siva Prasad; G Narayanan
2013-06-01
Before installation, a voltage source converter is usually subjected to heat-run test to verify its thermal design and performance under load. For heat-run test, the converter needs to be operated at rated voltage and rated current for a substantial length of time. Hence, such tests consume huge amount of energy in case of high-power converters. Also, the capacities of the source and loads available in the research and development (R & D) centre or the production facility could be inadequate to conduct such tests. This paper proposes a method to conduct heat-run tests on highpower, pulse width modulated (PWM) converters with low energy consumption. The experimental set-up consists of the converter under test and another converter (of similar or higher rating), both connected in parallel on the ac side and open on the dc side. Vector-control or synchronous reference frame control is employed to control the converters such that one draws certain amount of reactive power and the other supplies the same; only the system losses are drawn from the mains. The performance of the controller is validated through simulation and experiments. Experimental results, pertaining to heat-run tests on a high-power PWM converter, are presented at power levels of 25 kVA to 150 kVA.

Design, Control, and Modeling of a New Voltage Source Converter for HVDC System
Mohan, Madhan; Singh, Bhim; Ketan Panigrahi, Bijaya
2013-05-01
Abstract: A New Voltage Source Converter (VSC) based on neutral clamped three-level circuit is proposed for High Voltage DC (HVDC) system. The proposed VSC is designed in a multipulse configuration. The converter is operated by Fundamental Frequency Switching (FFS). A new control method is developed for achieving all the necessary control aspects of HVDC system such as independent real and reactive power control, bidirectional real and reactive power control. The basic of the control method is varying the pulse width and by keeping the dc link voltage constant. The steady state and dynamic performances of HVDC system interconnecting two different frequencies network are demonstrated for active and reactive power control. Total number of transformers used in this system are reduced to half in comparison with the two-level VSCs for both active and reactive power control. The performance of the HVDC system is improved in terms of reduced harmonics level even at fundamental frequency switching. The harmonic performance of the designed converter is also studied for different value of the dead angle (Î²), and the optimized range of the dead angle is achieved for varying reactive power requirement. Simulation results are presented for the designed three level multipulse voltage source converters with the proposed control algorithm.
An improved fault-tolerant control scheme for PWM inverter-fed induction motor-based EVs.

This paper proposes an improved fault-tolerant control scheme for PWM inverter-fed induction motor-based electric vehicles. The proposed strategy deals with power switch (IGBTs) failures mitigation within a reconfigurable induction motor control. To increase the vehicle powertrain reliability regarding IGBT open-circuit failures, 4-wire and 4-leg PWM inverter topologies are investigated and their performances discussed in a vehicle context. The proposed fault-tolerant topologies require only minimum hardware modifications to the conventional off-the-shelf six-switch three-phase drive, mitigating the IGBTs failures by specific inverter control. Indeed, the two topologies exploit the induction motor neutral accessibility for fault-tolerant purposes. The 4-wire topology uses then classical hysteresis controllers to account for the IGBT failures. The 4-leg topology, meanwhile, uses a specific 3D space vector PWM to handle vehicle requirements in terms of size (DC bus capacitors) and cost (IGBTs number). Experiments on an induction motor drive and simulations on an electric vehicle are carried-out using a European urban driving cycle to show that the proposed fault-tolerant control approach is effective and provides a simple configuration with high performance in terms of speed and torque responses.

In this paper a back EMF based sensor less scheme is clearly explained with the help of MATLABSIMULINK models. The low cost BLDC driver is achieved by the reduction of switch device count, cost down of control, and saving of hall sensors for commercial applications. Field programmable gate array was chosen as the hardware platform because of its benefits like high operating frequency and parallel processing capabilities. Asymmetric pulse width modulation scheme is developed to drive FSTP BLDC motors with the desired dynamic and static speed–torque characteristics. The simulation analysis of the back EMF based sensor less BLDC driver will be discussed and the performance using novel schemes will be evaluated.

This paper focuses on the detection of a rotor cage fault in a three-phase PWM feed induction motor. In inverter-fed machines there are some difficulties for the detection of a rotor cage fault. These difficulties are due to the fault signature that will be contained in the currents or voltages applied to the machine. In this way, a new approach based on the current and a virtual flux is proposed. The use of the virtual flux allows the improving of the signal to noise ratio. This approach also allows the identification of a rotor cage fault independently of the type of control used in the ac drive. The theoretical principle of this method is discussed. Simulation and experimental results are presented in order to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach

Full Text Available In this paper, a three-phase two leg neutral point clamped (NPC converter is presented for power factor correction and dc-link voltage regulation. The adopted converter has simpler circuit configuration and less number of power switches compared to three-level PWM converter. In this circuit configuration, only eight power switches and four clamping diodes with voltage stress of half the dc bus voltage are used. A simplified space vector pulse width modulation scheme (SVPWM is also adopted to track the line current commands. A reference voltage vector is generated on the ac terminal for drawing the sinusoidal line currents with unity power factor. This algorithm reduces the time required to calculate the switching time durations of voltage vectors. The simulation results have been presented to verify the validity and effectiveness of the proposed control strategy.

Digital Computer Transient Models of Three-Phase Inverter Systems Under Normal and Fault Conditions
Gawish, Said Abdelhamid Atiya
In many industrial applications, variable speed drives of electrical machines are needed. This speed control can be met either by dc or ac machines. The ac machines have several distinct advantages compared to dc machines due to the absence of commutators, therefore, a variable -voltage, variable-frequency power supply is normally required for speed control of ac machines. This power supply can be obtained by a dc link converter system that consists of a rectifier and inverter. In this dissertation the waveforms and transient response of a three-phase forced-commutated inverters are simulated on a digital computer from basic circuit theory. Both the voltage source inverter (VSI) and the current source inverter (CSI) are simulated using thyristors with real characteristics. The simulation is further modified to give three-phase currents with adjustable frequency to be used in adjustable speed induction motor drives or the starting of synchronous motors from rest. The digital simulation of Gate Turn-Off (GTO) thyristor inverters feeding an induction motor is presented and can allow for step frequency change for the study of adjustable speed induction motor drives. A naturally-commutated three-phase inverter using thyristors with real characteristics was also simulated to study VSIs and CSIs. The interactions between the load parameters and the inverter circuit parameters are investigated. The parameters studied include ratio of dc voltage to amplitude of ac voltage, ratio of smoothing inductance to load inductance and triggering angle (alpha). Since the naturally-commutated CSI system is widely used in power applications, it was investigated under different types of fault s occurring both on the line and in the inverter circuit. These faults include three-phase short circuits, thyristor failures, line-to-line faults, false triggering and open circuits. A digital computer was used to simulate these faults and the system response because it is difficult to obtain the information herein for abnormal operations by any other method. This study clearly demonstrates that the theoretical circuit so simulated for different types of faults will allow designers of systems to predict accurately values of, short-circuit current ratios, maximum fault clearing times, limiting values of commutating capacitors and transient recovery voltage excursions.

Abstract in english This paper proposes a solution for the direct connection of a three-phase induction generator to a single-phase feeder. This high power quality system is intended to be used in micro-hydro power plants applications with control of the water flow. It is employed to maintain the speed of the induction [...] generator greater than its synchronous value. The difference between the generated power and the power consumed by the local load flows through the single-phase feeder. The power flow control is provided by a three-phase PWM inverter that additionally guarantees the local power quality. A system with good power quality must have sinusoidal and constant amplitude voltages, fixed frequency operation, balanced induction generator voltages and currents, harmonics and reactive power compensation.

Full Text Available In order to reduce the torque ripple and harmonics for smooth operation of the machine and to reduce the amount of heat generated the motor has to be supplied with multi phase supply greater than three phase supply. Selection of even number of phases should be avoided, because it decreases the performance of the motor as poles coincide with each other. So, Five Phase Supply is preferred. A five phase five leg 10 switch inverter fed five phase star connected load operating with five different excitation is simulated and compared with that of three phase conventional inverter.
A low-power circuit for piezoelectric vibration control by synchronized switching on voltage sources
Shen, Hui; Ji, Hongli; Zhu, Kongjun; Balsi, Marco; Giorgio, Ivan; dell'Isola, Francesco
2010-01-01
In the paper, a vibration damping system powered by harvested energy with implementation of the so-called SSDV (synchronized switch damping on voltage source) technique is designed and investigated. In the semi-passive approach, the piezoelectric element is intermittently switched from open-circuit to specific impedance synchronously with the structural vibration. Due to this switching procedure, a phase difference appears between the strain induced by vibration and the resulting voltage, thus creating energy dissipation. By supplying the energy collected from the piezoelectric materials to the switching circuit, a new low-power device using the SSDV technique is proposed. Compared with the original self-powered SSDI (synchronized switch damping on inductor), such a device can significantly improve its performance of vibration control. Its effectiveness in the single-mode resonant damping of a composite beam is validated by the experimental results.

Full Text Available In this paper, a new topology of cascaded multilevel inverter with a high number of steps associated with a low number of switches is presented. A multilevel voltage is obtained by cascading two H-bridges and an inverter. Voltage sources are connected in series/parallel by the switching devices. The size, complexity and power consumption in the gate driving circuits is also reduced. Reduction of rating of the switches is another advantage. The total harmonic distortion (THD is reduced with more number of steps in output voltage without using pulse width modulation techniques. The proposed setup configures theoretical approach along with simulations carried on MATLAB/SIMULINK environment. Simulation results are shown and compared with theoretical results.

A new multilevel voltage-source inverter with a separate dc sources is proposed for high-voltage, high-power applications, such as flexible ac transmission systems (FACTS) including static var generation (SVG), power line conditioning, series compensation, phase shifting, voltage balancing, fuel cell and photovoltaic utility systems interfacing, etc. The new M-level inverter consists of (M-1)/2 single phase full bridges in which each bridge has its own separate dc source. This inverter can generate almost sinusoidal waveform voltage with only one time switching per cycle as the number of levels increases. It can solve the problems of conventional transformer-based multipulse inverters and the problems of the multilevel diode-clamped inverter and the multilevel flying capacitor inverter. To demonstrate the superiority of the new inverter, a SVG system using the new inverter topology is discussed through analysis, simulation and experiment.

Sudha, L U; Baskaran, J; Elankurisil, S A
2015-01-01
This paper corroborates three different hybrid modulation strategies suitable for single-phase voltage source inverter. The proposed method is formulated using fundamental switching and carrier based pulse width modulation methods. The main tale of this proposed method is to optimize a specific performance criterion, such as minimization of the total harmonic distortion (THD), lower order harmonics, switching losses, and heat losses. The proposed method is articulated using fundamental switching and carrier based pulse width modulation methods. Thus, the harmonic pollution in the power system will be reduced and the power quality will be augmented with better harmonic profile for a target fundamental output voltage. The proposed modulation strategies are simulated in MATLAB r2010a and implemented in a Xilinx spartan 3E-500 FG 320 FPGA processor. The feasibility of these modulation strategies is authenticated through simulation and experimental results. PMID:25821852

Passive damping is proven as a robust stabilizing technique for LCL-filtered voltage source converters. However, conventional design methods of passive dampers are based on the passive components only, while the inherent damping effect of time delay in the digital control system is overlooked. In...... this paper, a frequency-domain passivity-based design approach is proposed, where the passive dampers are designed to eliminate the negative real part of the converter output admittance with closed-loop current control, rather than shaping the LCL-filter itself.

Design procedures of two commonly used passive dampers with LCL-filtered VSCs are illustrated. Experimental results validate...
Voltage source ac-to-dc converters for high-power transmitters
Cormier, R.
1990-01-01
This work was done to optimize the design of the components used for the beam power supply, which is a component of the transmitters in the Deep Space Network (DSN). The major findings are: (1) the difference in regulation between a six-pulse and a twelve-pulse converter is at most 7 percent worse for the twelve-pulse converter; (2) the commutation overlap angle of a current source converter equals that of a voltage source converter with continuous line currents; (3) the sources of uncharacteristic harmonics are identified with SPICE simulation; (4) the use of an imperfect phase-shifting transformer for the twelve-pulse converter generates a harmonic at six times the line frequency; and (5) the assumptions usually made in analyzing converters can be relaxed with SPICE simulation. The results demonstrate the suitability of using SPICE simulation to obtain detailed performance predictions of ac-to-dc converters.

The stable operating power limits of a small scale HVDC system composed of voltage source converters (VSC-HVDC system) are analyzed with a simple model. The VSC-HVDC system could operate where the AC system must be somewhat larger in capacity than the VSC-HVDC system capacity. The stable operating power limits were between one and two times the SCR (short circuit ratio). When the inverter of the VSC-HVDC system was operated with lead reactive (capacitive) power control conditions, the stable operating limits were increased through AC voltage stabilization. When the inverter was a STATCOM operation, it could operate regardless of the SCR but regions within allowable AC voltage variations.

Full Text Available The paper presents the hysteresis current control of the voltage source inverter. The eMEGAsim real-time simulator is developed by OPAL-RT. Real-time simulation is used in many cases because it allows the behavior of the industrial processes operation to be determined. Two research directions are developed in this case, Rapid Control Prototyping and Hardware-In-the-Loop. Using eMEGAsim simulator allows implementing the command and control strategy of a single-phase voltage source inverter. At this stage, the real-time behavior of operation is monitored, because the voltage source inverter will be the part of a single-phase shunt active filter. In order to command and control the voltage source inverter, the current and voltage signals are acquired, since these signals are necessary to estimate reference signal. Extension of the Instantaneous Reactive Power Theorem is used because this theorem is suitable for single-phase active filter control. To test the real-time command and control strategy implemented, it was used a low power single-phase voltage source inverter (full bridge.

This paper proposes a novel multilevel PWM strategy to corner the advantages of low frequency switching and reduced total harmonic distortion (THD. The basic idea of the proposed area integration PWM (AIPWM method is that the area of the required sinusoidal (fundamental output and the total area of the output pulses are made equal. An attempt is made to incorporate two soft computing techniques namely evolutionary programming (EP and genetic algorithm (GA in the generation and placement of switching pulses. The results of a prototype seven-level cascaded inverter experimented with the novel PWM strategies are presented.

This paper presents a medium-voltage motor drive with a three-phase modular multilevel PWM inverter and focuses on its control method and operating performance. This motor drive is particularly suitable for fans, blowers, pumps, and compressors, in which the load torque is proportional to the square of the rotating speed. Particular attention is paid to the dc-capacitor voltage fluctuation of each chopper-cell because it may affect the voltage rating of the power switching devices used. This paper describes the theoretical equations related to the amount of the voltage fluctuation. A downscaled model rated at 400V and 15kW is designed and built to confirm the validity and effectiveness of the nine-level (17-level in line-to-line) PWM inverter that is intended for use in medium-voltage motor drives to achieve energy savings.

In order to utilize the energy from the renewable energy sources, power conversion system is necessary, in which the voltage source inverter (VSI) is usually the last stage for injecting power to the grid. It is an economical solution to add the function of power quality conditioning to the grid-connected VSI in the low-voltage distribution system. Two multifunctional VSIs are studied in this paper, that is, inductive-coupling VSI and capacitive-coupling VSI, which are named after the fundamental frequency impedance of their coupling branch. The operation voltages of the two VSIs are compared when they are used for renewable energy integration and power quality conditioning simultaneously. The operation voltage of the capacitive-coupling VSI can be set much lower than that of the inductive-coupling VSI when reactive power is for compensating inductive loads. Since a large portion of the loads in the distribution system are inductive, the capacitive-coupling VSI is further studied. The design and control method of the multifunctional capacitive-coupling VSI are proposed in this paper. Simulation and experimental results are provided to show its validity. PMID:25177725
Power angle control of grid-connected voltage source converter in a wind energy application
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Svensson, Jan [Chalmers Univ. of Technology, Goeteborg (Sweden). Dept. of Electric Power Engineering
1995-12-31
In this thesis, the connection of a voltage source converter to the grid in a wind energy application is examined. The possibility of using a cheap control system without grid current measurements, is investigated. The control method is based on controlling the voltage angle of the inverter, which governs the active power flow. The highest frequency of the power variation, coming from wind turbine, is approx. 5 Hz. Since the proposed control method easily can handle such power variations it is very well suited for wind turbine applications. The characteristics of the system depend on the DC-link capacitor, the grid filter inductance and resistance. Large values of the resistance damp the system well but increase the energy losses. A high inductance leads to a reduced harmonic level on the grid but makes the system slower. By using feed-forward of the generator/rectifier current signal, the performance is increased compared to an ordinary PI-control. Combining the Linear Quadratic (LQ) control method with Kalman filtered input signals, a robust control method with a good performance is obtained. The LQ controller controls both the phase displacement angle and the modulation index, resulting in higher bandwidth, and the typical power angle resonance at the grid frequency disappears. 22 refs, 109 figs, 14 tabs
Nonlinear control of voltage source converters in AC-DC power system.
Dash, P K; Nayak, N
2014-07-01
This paper presents the design of a robust nonlinear controller for a parallel AC-DC power system using a Lyapunov function-based sliding mode control (LYPSMC) strategy. The inputs for the proposed control scheme are the DC voltage and reactive power errors at the converter station and the active and reactive power errors at the inverter station of the voltage-source converter-based high voltage direct current transmission (VSC-HVDC) link. The stability and robust tracking of the system parameters are ensured by applying the Lyapunov direct method. Also the gains of the sliding mode control (SMC) are made adaptive using the stability conditions of the Lyapunov function. The proposed control strategy offers invariant stability to a class of systems having modeling uncertainties due to parameter changes and exogenous inputs. Comprehensive computer simulations are carried out to verify the proposed control scheme under several system disturbances like changes in short-circuit ratio, converter parametric changes, and faults on the converter and inverter buses for single generating system connected to the power grid in a single machine infinite-bus AC-DC network and also for a 3-machine two-area power system. Furthermore, a second order super twisting sliding mode control scheme has been presented in this paper that provides a higher degree of nonlinearity than the LYPSMC and damps faster the converter and inverter voltage and power oscillations.

This paper presents a new time domain Controlled Voltage Source (CVS) model for an arc furnace using the Electro Magnetic Transients Program (EMTP). The developed model is based on a piece wise linear approximation of the v-i characteristic of the arc furnace load. In addition to this, the novelty of this simulation technique lies in the fact that the active power consumed by the load is also considered in the proposed load model, thus making the proposed load model dependent on the operating conditions of the load. Dynamic variation of the arc is incorporated through sinusoidal and band limited white noise variation of the arc resistance in the v-i characteristic of the arc furnace load. Depending on the variation of the arc resistance, the developed load model accurately represents both static (deterministic) and dynamic (random) arc characteristics. While static arc models are useful for harmonic studies, dynamic models are useful for power quality studies and in particular, the study of voltage flicker. The results are compared with actual voltage measurements taken from a local utility to prove the validity of the proposed load model.
Harmonic Filtering Performance of a Hybrid Active Filter for a Three-Phase 12-Pulse Diode Rectifier
Isozaki, Kohei; Akagi, Hirofumi
This paper describes a hybrid active filter for harmonic-current compensation of a three-phase 12-pulse diode rectifier used as the front end of a medium-voltage motor drive system. This hybrid filter is characterized by the direct series connection of a simple LC filter and a small-rated active filter. This circuit configuration brings low cost, small size, and light weight to the hybrid filter. The authors design, construct, and test a three-phase experimental system rated at 400V and 15kW, which is a downscaled model of the medium-voltage motor drive system. In this experiment, the LC filter is tuned to the 11th harmonic frequency, and the active filter is based on a three-level diode-clamped PWM converter with a dc capacitor voltage as low as 28V. This hybrid filter is connected on either the first or fourth winding of a line-frequency transformer with a first Î”-winding voltage of 400V in the primary, and a second Î”-winding voltage of 220V, a third Y-winding voltage of 220V, and a fourth Î”-winding voltage of 400V in the secondary. Experimental results show that the hybrid filter performs satisfactory filtering in a range from the no-load to full-load conditions.

Furthermore, the capacitance value of the insulated rotor required to make the shaft voltage equal to or less than the dielectric breakdown voltage of the bearing grease is obtained.
EMC Increasing of PWM Rectifier in Comparison with Classical Rectifier

2008-12-01
Full Text Available Pulse width modulated rectifier is a very popular topic nowadays. The modern industrial production demands continuous and lossless conversion of electrical energy parameters. This need leads to wide spread of power semiconductor converters. The rapid development in power electronics and microprocessor technology enables to apply sophisticated control methods that eliminate negative side effects of the power converters on the supply network. The phase controlled thyristor rectifiers overload the supply network with higher harmonics and reactive power consumption. That is why the PWM rectifier is being examined. In comparison with the phase controlled rectifier it can be controlled to consume nearly sinusoidal current with power factor equal to unity. Another advantage is its capability of energy recuperation. The PWM rectifier can assert itself for its good behavior in many applications, for example as an input rectifier in indirect frequency converter, or in traction. Traction vehicles equipped with PWM rectifier do not consume reactive power, do not load the supply network with higher harmonics, and the recuperation is possible. The paper deals with the PWM rectifier functional model realization and examination. Electromagnetic compatibility of PWM rectifier and classical phase controlled rectifier is compared on the basis of the input current harmonic analysis.

In order to reduce the torque ripple and harmonics for smooth operation of the machine and to reduce the amount of heat generated the motor has to be supplied with multi phase supply greater than three phase supply. Selection of even number of phases should be avoided, because it decreases the performance of the motor as poles coincide with each other. So, Five Phase Supply is preferred. A five phase five leg 10 switch inverter fed five phase star connected load operating with five different ...
Realise of PWM-generating based on FPGA
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The power supply digital controllers of Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility(SSRF) make use of the PWM (pulse width modulation) wave as the feedback to the power-electrical devices, so as to obtain constant current of high accuracy and stability. The design of PWM wave generation structure in FPGA is good for a compact controller,and the reduction of the usage of Integrated Circuits (ICs) decreases the interference from the noise among the ICs, hence better performance of the controller. In addition, FPGA can be programmed circularly at any time,so as to optimize the structure design and make a maximum use of the advantage of FPGA. As a part of transplanting the complete function of the DSP (digital signal processor/processing), realizing the generation of PWM wave in FPGA is feasible. In this paper, we report progress in this regard at SSRF. (authors)
Neural network based PWM AC chopper fed induction motor drive

Venkatesan Jamuna
2009-01-01
Full Text Available In this paper, a new Simulink model for a neural network controlled PWM AC chopper fed single phase induction motor is proposed. Closed loop speed control is achieved using a neural network controller. To maintain a constant fluid flow with a variation in pressure head, drives like fan and pump are operated with closed loop speed control. The need to improve the quality and reliability of the drive circuit has increased because of the growing demand for improving the performance of motor drives. With the increased availability of MOSFET's and IGBT's, PWM converters can be used efficiently in low and medium power applications. From the simulation studies, it is seen that the PWM AC chopper has a better harmonic spectrum and lesser copper loss than the Phase controlled AC chopper. It is observed that the drive system with the proposed model produces better dynamic performance, reduced overshoot and fast transient response. .
Three-phase multilevel solar inverter for motor drive system
Bhasagare, Mayuresh P.
This thesis deals with three phase inverters and the different control strategies that can be associated with an inverter being used together. The first part of this thesis discusses the present research in the fields of PV panels, motor drive systems and three phase inverters along with their control. This control includes various strategies like MPPT, Volts-Hertz and modulation index compensation. Incorporating these techniques together is the goal of this thesis. A new topology for operating an open end motor drive system has also been discusses, where a boost converter and a flyback converter have been used in cascade to run a three phase motor. The main advantage of this is increasing the number of levels and improving the quality of the output voltage, not to mention a few other benefits of having the proposed circuit. A new algorithm has also been designed for starting and stopping the motor, which controls the current drawn from the power source during starting.
SYNTHESIS OF VOLTAGES OF UNIFORM PWM IN TIME REGULATION
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
A. G. Stryzhniou
2015-02-01
Full Text Available The article describes a process of synthesis and qualitative assessment of the harmonic composition of voltages of multiple and single PWM pulses in time regulation, being, along with amplitude, frequency and phase method, one of control methods of an asynchronous motor. The main point of time regulation is that a pause after any two single PWM pulses with different polarity or after any two groups of multiple PWM pulses with different polarity changes during a process of regulation. Feature of time regulation is that a motor has fast response in the range of small-signal of control and good linearity of speed-torque characteristics in the whole control range. Analytical expressions of parameters of PWM pulses ai and ti are obtained which allow to simplify considerably a process of formation and implementation of time regulation using tabular or indexed-tabular methods. These expressions allow not only to define voltage amplitude of Â harmonic but also to perform qualitative assessment of harmonic composition of output voltages at time regulation. It is specified that harmonic frequencies wi = w0/q change in inverse proportion to magnitude of parameter q during a process of regulation and there is a replacement of a fundamental frequency by frequencies of higher harmonics.The offered approach allows to synthesize voltage of uniform single and multiple PWM pulses and to perform their comparative and qualitative analysis and the obtained expressions can be used at modeling of AC motor work. Voltage of multiple PWM pulses which is formed using stepped reference voltage with even quantity of steps in a half period and a pause on a zero level has the best parameters by criterion of a minimum of harmonic components and a maximum of a factor of anharmonicity KÐ½Ñ at time regulation.

The number of offshore wind farms will keep increasing in the future as a part of the shift towards a CO2 free energy production. The energy harvested from the wind farm must be brought to shore, which is often done by using a three-phase armoured submarine power cable. The use of an armour...... increases the losses in armoured cables compared to unarmoured cables. In this paper a thorough state of the art analysis is conducted on armour losses in three-phase armoured submarine power cables. The analysis shows that the IEC 60287-1-1 standard overestimates the armour losses which lead to the...

Dynamical Model Averaging and PWM Based Control for Pneumatic Actuators
Hodgson, Sean; Tavakoli, Mahdi; Pham, Minh Tu; Leleve, Arnaud
2014-01-01
A pneumatic actuator with solenoid valves is a discontinuous-input system because each valve can be either in on or off state. For such an actuator, this paper proposes a sliding-mode control scheme based on an averaged continuous-input equivalent model for the open-loop system. The averaged model is obtained from the nonlinear dynamics of the open-loop discontinuous-input system undergoing pulse-width-modulation (PWM) at the input (i.e., valve open/close action). The PWM duty cycle will be r...

Full Text Available This paper presents the selective harmonic elimination technique implementation for hybrid seven-level cascaded multilevel converter. The converter configuration is the cascaded connection of a three-level Active neutral-pointclamped (ANPC converter and an H-bridge per phase, thus forming a hybrid seven-level multilevel converter. The converter is operated by maintaining the switching frequency of a converter to a minimum value using selective harmonic elimination pulse width modulation (SHE-PWM.

A high-quality multi-level voltage source inverter suitable for high power/high voltage applications
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
In this paper new magnitudes for D C side capacitors' voltages of a multi level voltage source inv enter are presented. Using these magnitudes of D C side capacitors voltage allow generation of Î£3k steps of A C output voltage by cascade connection of only N single-phase full bridge inverter. This subject has resulted in almost sinusoidal output voltage wave form. Approximated equal area pulse amplitude modulation technique is used to calculate the duration of each step of voltage, which has resulted in reduction of complexity of control circuit. A simple closed-loop controller is developed for controlling the voltage of D C side capacitors. Harmonic analysis and capacitor calculations are presented, too.

Three-Phase Flow and Capillarity in Porous Media
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Helset, H.M.

Multiphase flow occurs in most production operations on the reservoir rock of an oil field. Three-phase flow occurs in many oil recovery processes, such as gas or water alternating gas injection into water flooded reservoirs, thermal oil recovery and surfactant flooding. In this doctoral thesis, three-phase flow in porous media is modeled using the method of characteristics and simple wave theory. The general mathematical methods are used to model different flow processes: secondary migration of hydrocarbons, gravity segregated three-phase flow, and displacement experiments for relative permeabilities. The main conclusions from applying the methods to the migration process through a water-saturated carrier bed to a partially permeable seal are: (1) the three-phase solutions are generally dominated by the very low gas viscosity and gas density, (2) countercurrent flow and interference between the gas and oil mobilities can lead to trapping in situations where the permeability contrast between the seal and the carrier bed is insufficient to trap oil alone, (3) zones in which pressures exceed those from hydrostatic gradients (overpressured zones) exist even when the permeability contrast between the seal and the carrier bed is modest. The discussion of gravity segregated flow identifies stable displacement fronts, which usually occur only for a single value of the gas-water injection ratio. The new method developed for interpreting displacement experiments, with capillary pressure included, is based on the travelling wave solution of the flow equations. 185 refs., 69 figs., 5 tabs.
Lattice Boltzmann modeling of three-phase incompressible flows
Liang, H.; Shi, B. C.; Chai, Z. H.
2016-01-01
In this paper, based on multicomponent phase-field theory we intend to develop an efficient lattice Boltzmann (LB) model for simulating three-phase incompressible flows. In this model, two LB equations are used to capture the interfaces among three different fluids, and another LB equation is adopted to solve the flow field, where a new distribution function for the forcing term is delicately designed. Different from previous multiphase LB models, the interfacial force is not used in the computation of fluid velocity, which is more reasonable from the perspective of the multiscale analysis. As a result, the computation of fluid velocity can be much simpler. Through the Chapman-Enskog analysis, it is shown that the present model can recover exactly the physical formulations for the three-phase system. Numerical simulations of extensive examples including two circular interfaces, ternary spinodal decomposition, spreading of a liquid lens, and Kelvin-Helmholtz instability are conducted to test the model. It is found that the present model can capture accurate interfaces among three different fluids, which is attributed to its algebraical and dynamical consistency properties with the two-component model. Furthermore, the numerical results of three-phase flows agree well with the theoretical results or some available data, which demonstrates that the present LB model is a reliable and efficient method for simulating three-phase flow problems.

A cascaded three-phase symmetrical multistage voltage multiplier
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
A cascaded three-phase symmetrical multistage Cockcroft-Walton voltage multiplier (CW-VM) is proposed in this report. It consists of three single-phase symmetrical voltage multipliers, which are connected in series at their smoothing columns like string of batteries and are driven by three-phase ac power source. The smoothing column of each voltage multiplier is charged twice every cycle independently by respective oscillating columns and discharged in series through load. The charging discharging process completes six times a cycle and therefore the output voltage ripple's frequency is of sixth order of the drive signal frequency. Thus the proposed approach eliminates the first five harmonic components of load generated voltage ripples and sixth harmonic is the major ripple component. The proposed cascaded three-phase symmetrical voltage multiplier has less than half the voltage ripple, and three times larger output voltage and output power than the conventional single-phase symmetrical CW-VM. Experimental and simulation results of the laboratory prototype are given to show the feasibility of proposed cascaded three-phase symmetrical CW-VM

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the enhancement patterns and morphologic features of hepatic abscesses, as seen on three-phase helical CT images. Three-phase helical CT images of 22 clinically and pathologically proven hepatic abscesses more than 3 cm in diameter in 21 patients were retrospectively reviewed. Three-phase helical CT scans were obtained at 30 sec(hepatic arterial phase, AP), 70 sec(portal venous phase, PP) and 3 min(equilibrium phase, EP) after the start of intravenous infusion of contrast material. We analyzed the number of abscess layers and their enhancement patterns during each phase, and evaluated the size and shape of abscess, the CT attenuation and presence of septae in the abscess cavity, and the thickness and maturation of the granulation layer and collagenous wall. AP images showed that 13 abscesses(59%) had four layers; on PP images, half the abscesses were seen to have three layers, while EP images showed that two-thirds had two layers. Among the 13 abscesses with four layers seen on AP images, all abscess cavities and granulation layers were hypo- and hyperattenuating, respectively, during all three phases. Most hypoattenuating collagenous walls seen on AP images became iso- or hyperattenuating on EP images, while hyperattenuating hyperperfusion zones seen on AP images became isoattenuating during later phases. The degree of maturation of the collagenous wall correlated with the number of abscess layers. As seen on AP, PP and EP three-phase helical CT images, hepatic abscess frequently had four, three, or two layers respectively. More mature collagenous walls tended to have more abscess layers.

The speed servo system of an AC motor should always have a rapid and smooth response without current ripple. For this purpose, this paper proposes a new mixed modulation method of the PWM inverter by considering acceleration torque and voltage saturation. The rapid and robust speed servo system often has the high gain speed controller and the high gain current controller. In this case, this speed servo system often has the voltage saturation in the transient state. This paper discusses the amplitude and THD of output voltage on the condition of voltage saturation for each voltage modulation method of three phase inverter such as the carrier comparison inverter using the two phase modulation (2ph. M) and the space voltage vector modulation (SVM) inverter. The carrier comparison inverter using the 2ph. M has the large voltage with large harmonic current. The SVM inverter has the smooth voltage response with small harmonic current. The proposed method switches over the SVM and the 2ph. M methods properly by considering acceleration torque and voltage saturation. The experimental results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed mixed modulation method of the PWM inverter.

In this paper a new Zero-Current-Transition (ZCT) PWM switching cell is presented. The proposed switching cell is composed of the normal hard-switched PWM cell (consisting of one active switch and one passive switch), plus as auxiliary circuit. The auxiliary circuit is inactive during the ON ad OFF intervals of the switches in the normal PWM switch. The transitions between the two states are controlled by the auxiliary circuit. Prior to turn-off, the current through the active switch in the PWM cell is forced to zero, thus the turn-off losses of the active switch are practically eliminated. At turn-on the auxiliary circuit slows down the growing rate of the current through the main switch. Thus, turn-on losses are also very much reduced. The active switch operates under ZCT conditions, the passive switch (diode) has a controlled reverse recovery, while the switch in the auxiliary circuit operates under Zero-Current-Switching (ZCS) conditions.

In this paper a new Zero-Voltage-Transition (ZVT) PWM switching cell is presented. The proposed switching cell is composed of the normal hard-switched PWM cell (consisting of one active switch and one passive switch), plus an auxiliary circuit (consisting of one active switch and some reactive components). The auxiliary circuit is inactive during the ON and OFF intervals of the switches in the normal PWM switch. However, the transitions between the two states are controlled by the auxiliary circuit. Prior to turn-on, the voltage across the active switch in the PWM cell is forced to zero, thus the turn-on losses of the active switch are practically eliminated. At turn-off the auxiliary circuit behaves like a non-dissipative passive snubber reducing the turn-off losses to a great extent. Zero-Voltage-Transition switching technique almost eliminates switching losses. The active switch operates under ZVT conditions, the passive switch (diode) has a controlled reverse recovery, and the switch in the auxiliary circuit operates under Zero-Current-Switching (ZCS) conditions.

Full Text Available Investigation of grid-tied photovoltaic system on the base of two diode-clamped inverters, controlled by specific algorithms of pulse-width modulation (PWM, has been done. This system includes two strings of photovoltaic panels feeding two diode-clamped inverters. The outputs of inverters are connected with the corresponding windings on the primary side of three-phase transformer, connected with a grid. In order to reduce phase voltage distortion and to increase efficiency of operation of the system, special scheme of control and modulation of inverters has been used, providing minimization of common-mode voltages and voltage waveforms symmetries under different operating conditions. Detailed simulation of processes in this photovoltaic-fed power conversion system has been executed. The results of simulations verify good performance of photovoltaic system regulated in accordance with specific strategy of control and modulation.
Capillary instability in models for three-phase flow
Azevedo, A. V.; Marchesin, D.; Plohr, B.; Zumbrun, K.
Standard models for immiscible three-phase flow in porous media exhibit unusual behavior associated with loss of strict hyperbolicity. Anomalies were at one time thought to be confined to the region of nonhyperbolicity, where the purely convective form of the model is ill-posed. However, recent results have revealed that diffusion terms, which are usually neglected, can have a significant effect. The delicate interplay between convection and diffusion determines a larger region of diffusive linear instability. For artificial and numerical diffusion, these two regions usually coincide, but in general they do not.Accordingly, in this paper, we investigate models of immiscible three-phase flow that account for the physical diffusive effects caused by capillary pressure differences among the phases. Our results indicate that, indeed, the locus of instability is enlarged by the effects of capillarity, which therefore entails complicated behavior even in the region of strict hyperbolicity. More precisely, we demonstrate the following results.(1) For general immiscible three-phase flow models, if there is stability near the boundary of the saturation triangle, then there exists a Dumortier-Roussarie-Sotomayor (DRS) bifurcation point within the region of strict hyperbolicity. Such a point lies on the boundary of the diffusive linear instability region. Moreover, as we have shown in previous works, existence of a DRS point (satisfying certain nondegeracy conditions) implies nonuniqueness of Riemann solutions, with corresponding nontrivial asymptotic dynamics at the diffusive level and ill-posedness for the purely convective form of the equations.(2) Models employing the interpolation formula of Stone (1970) to define the relative permeabilities can be linearly unstable near a corner of the saturation triangle. We illustrate this instability with an example in which the two-phase permeabilities are quadratic.Results (1) and (2) are obtained as consequences of more general theory concerning Majda-Pego stability and existence of DRS points, developed for any two-component system and applied to three-phase flow. These results establish the need for properly modelling capillary diffusion terms, for they have a significant influence on the well-posedness of the initial-value problem. They also suggest that generic immiscible three-phase flow models, such as those employing Stone permeabilities, are inadequate for describing three-phase flow.

The commonly used topologies for converting direct current power generated by solar panels to high quality alternating current power at the interface to the grid are the high- frequency and line frequency voltage source grid interface system. These topologies utilize transformers which come with negative features such as increase in cost, size and weight of the whole inverter. In addition, the efficiency and reliability of the system is reduced. A novel option for inverters is the multilevel concept as it is based on low frequency switching and provides voltage or current of low sharing between the power semiconductors. The key topologies which have been suggested for multilevel converters are diode clamped or neutral point clamped (NPC); capacitor clamped of flying capacitors (FC); and cascaded H-bridge inverters with separate direct current sources. The cascaded H-bridge converter demonstrates superior qualities among the multilevel converter topologies as a result of its modularity and flexibility. This paper investigated the operating principle of a cascaded NPC/H-bridge inverter for photovoltaic-grid application. The superior characteristics of the model were analyzed using the state space techniques and double Fourier principle. A new and improved phase sifted PWM technique was proposed and its performance was compared. The main system configuration, mathematical modeling, and simulation model were presented. The state space equation showed that the model has 8 different operating modes which can be utilized to realize 5 level voltages per cell. 13 refs., 1 tab., 6 figs.
Boosted PWM open loop control of hydraulic proportional valves
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
This paper presents an innovative open loop control technique for direct single stage hydraulic proportional valves whose response rate is significantly higher than that obtained by standard open loop control techniques, even comparable to more costly commercial closed loop systems. Different from standard open loop techniques, which provide the coil with a constant current proportional to the target position, the control strategy proposed in this paper employs the peak and hold (P and H) technique, widely used in Diesel engine modern supply systems, to boost the duty cycle value of the pulse width modulation (PWM) signal for a short time, namely during the spool displacement, while maintaining a lower duty cycle for holding the spool in the required opening position. The developed 'boosted PWM' technique only requires a low cost microcontroller, such as a peripheral interface controller (PIC) equipped with a metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) power driver. The PWM parameters are calibrated as a function of the spool displacement so as to maximize the response rate without introducing overshoots: the collected data are stored in the PIC. Different valve opening procedures with step response have been compared to demonstrate the merits of the proposed boosted PWM technique. No overshoots have been registered. Moreover, the proposed method is characterized by a significantly higher response rate with respect to a standard open loop control, which approximately has the same cost. Similar experimental tests show that the proposed boosted PWM technique has a response rate even higher than that provided by the more costly commercial closed loop system mounted on the valve, and it produces no overshoots

Accurate parameter estimation for unbalanced three-phase system.
Chen, Yuan; So, Hing Cheung
2014-01-01
Smart grid is an intelligent power generation and control console in modern electricity networks, where the unbalanced three-phase power system is the commonly used model. Here, parameter estimation for this system is addressed. After converting the three-phase waveforms into a pair of orthogonal signals via the Î± Î²-transformation, the nonlinear least squares (NLS) estimator is developed for accurately finding the frequency, phase, and voltage parameters. The estimator is realized by the Newton-Raphson scheme, whose global convergence is studied in this paper. Computer simulations show that the mean square error performance of NLS method can attain the CramÃ©r-Rao lower bound. Moreover, our proposal provides more accurate frequency estimation when compared with the complex least mean square (CLMS) and augmented CLMS. PMID:25162056

2014-01-01
Full Text Available Multilevel converters are becoming increasingly used in many industrial applications due to the many advantages that they offer. The improvements in the output signal quality, lower Total Harmonic Distortion (THD and many other properties make multilevel converters very attractive for connecting photovoltaic generators to medium voltage grid directly or to be used in a local power supply. In this paper, we focus on the implementation of a three-phase five-level diode clamped inverter and design of a performing nonlinear controller using the Backstepping approach. The control objective is to generate, at the system output, sinusoidal three-phase voltages with amplitude and frequency fixed by the reference signal independently of load variations. The performance study of the multilevel inverter and the designed controller are made by simulations in Matlab/Simulink environment.
A three phase model of a batch fluidized bed
Aly, S. E.; Fathalah, K. A.
A three phase mathematical model of simultaneous heat and mass transfer of a batch operation for a fluidized bed is presented. The three phases are a solid free bubble, emulsion and solid phases. The model employs an elaborate five equations porosity model. Various correlations for the minimum fluidization parameters are surveyed and compared with the adequate one is being adopted in the model. The governing equations together with the boundary and initial conditions are presented for a cyclic operation of the bed. These are numerically solved for a test case where the bed is charged with silica gel particles to dehumidify a process air stream. Thus the bed works in an air dehumidification mode/bed regeneration mode cyclic operation with matching conditions.Results for the bed operation are presented as the temperature and humidity ratio variations for the test case. The results indicate the ability of the developed model to provide the required data for the concerned batch operated fluidized bed.
Double storey three phase saturated cores fault current limiter
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
A novel saturated-cores Fault-Current-Limiter (FCL) configuration is described. This FCL is based on two parallel planes of iron rectangular cores, on which three-phase coils are mounted and connected in series to the grid. Two DC coils are mounted in between the planes on perpendicular core limbs connecting the two AC planes. The DC coils are set to magnetically saturate the AC cores. The transition to three-dimensional, double-storey design enables handling three-phase symmetrical faults while offering better decoupling between the AC and DC circuits. At the same time, it shortens the AC limb lengths and enables deeper magnetic saturation levels in comparison to other saturated cores FCL designs. Hence, this FCL configuration exhibits lower insertion impedance and higher ratio of fault to nominal state impedance in comparison with other designs.
Three-phase radionuclide scintigraphy of the hand
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Three-phase radionuclide scintigraphy of the hand was performed on 116 patients. Normal and abnormal patterns for radionuclide angiography, immediate post-injection blood-pool images, and delayed scans (3-4 hr.) were established. Of 80 patients with normal circulation, 61 (76%) had equal radial and ulnar artery flow bilaterally, while in 19 (24%) either the radial or ulnar artery was dominant. Abnormal studies were grouped into three categories: suspected vascular lesions (Group I), pain of uncertain etiology (Group II), and patients evaluated before and after reconstructive surgery (Group III). The diagnosis was correct in 89% of the patients in Group I (34/38), 89% of those in Group II (57/64), and all of those in Group III (14/14). Three-phase scintigraphy of the hand yields significant information about perfusion and bone metabolism

Peripheral cholangiocarcinoma : three-phase helical CT appearance
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
To analyze the enhancement patterns and morphology of peripheral cholangiocar-cinomas (CCs), as seen on three-phase helical CT. Three-phase helical CT scans of 25 cases of 24 patients with pathologically-proven CCs were retrospectively reviewed. After intravenous administration of contrast media, scans of the hepatic arterial phase (HAP) were obtained at 30 seconds, of the portal venous phase (PVP) at 70 seconds, and of the delayed phase (DP) at 3 minutes. Linear, dense, marginal enhancement was seen in 17 CCs (68%), mainly on HAP images (64%) while thick, band-like, peripheral enhancement was seen in 18 (72%), on either PVP (52%) or DP (44%). Internal enhancement was observed in 23 CCs (92%) on PVP (68%) and/or DP (88%), and 19 CCs (76%) among them showed incomplete enhancement of stippled and/or septated patterns. Most (76%) were seen throughout all three phases to be hypoattenuating, as compared to the surrounding parenchyma. On HAP, wedge-shaped parenchymal enhancement was demonstrated at the periphery of 19 CCs (76%) suggesting impaired portal flow. Associated morphologic findings were satellate nodules (n=15, 60%), lymphadenopathy (n=14, 56%), focal dilatation of intrahepatic ducts around the tumor (44%), umbilication of the liver surface (50%), and clonorchiasis (44%). On three-phase helical CT, peripheral cholangiocarcinoma showed linear marginal enhancement on HAP, thick peripheral enhancement on PVP and/or DP, stippled and septated enhancing foci on DP, and peritumoral wedge enhancement on HAP. Associated findings such as satellite nodules, focal dilatation of the intrahepatic ducts, umbilication of the tumor, and clonorchiasis were helpful

Three-dimensional numerical simulations of three-phase flows
Pavlidis, Dimitrios; Xie, Zhizhua; Salinas, Pablo; Pain, Chris; Matar, Omar
2015-11-01
The objective of this study is to investigate the fluid dynamics of three-dimensional three-phase flow problems, such as droplet impact on a gas-liquid interface and bubble rising through a liquid-liquid interface. An adaptive unstructured mesh modelling framework is employed here to study three-phase flow problems, which can modify and adapt unstructured meshes to better represent the underlying physics of multiphase problems and reduce computational effort without sacrificing accuracy. The numerical framework consists of a mixed control volume and finite element formulation, a `volume of fluid' type method for the interface capturing based on a compressive control volume advection method and second-order finite element methods, and a force-balanced algorithm for the surface tension implementation, minimising the spurious velocities often found in such flow simulations. The surface tension coefficient decomposition method has been employed to deal with surface tension pairing between different phases via a compositional approach. Numerical examples of some benchmark tests and the dynamics of three-phase flows are presented to demonstrate the ability of this method. EPSRC Programme Grant, MEMPHIS, EP/K0039761/1.
Precise derating of three phase induction motors with unbalanced voltages
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Performance analysis of three phase induction motors under supply voltage unbalance conditions is normally conducted using the well-known symmetrical components analysis. In this analysis, the voltage unbalance level at the terminals of the machine is assessed by means of the NEMA or IEC definitions. Both definitions lead to a relatively large error in predicting the performance of a machine. A method has recently been proposed in which, in addition to the voltage unbalance factor (VUF), the phase angle has been taken into account in the analysis. This means that the voltage unbalance factor is regarded as a complex value. This paper shows that although the use of the complex VUF reduces the computational error considerably, it is still high. This is proven by evaluating the derating factor of a three phase induction motor. A method is introduced to determine the derating factor precisely using the complex unbalance factor for an induction motor operating under any unbalanced supply condition. A practical case for derating of a typical three phase squirrel cage induction motor supplied by an unbalanced voltage is studied in the paper

Inverter Output Filter Effect on PWM Motor Drives of a Flywheel Energy Storage System
Santiago, Walter
2004-01-01
NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) has been involved in the research and development of high speed flywheel systems for small satellite energy storage and attitude control applications. One research and development area has been the minimization of the switching noise produced by the pulsed width modulated (PWM) inverter that drives the flywheel permanent magnet motor/generator (PM M/G). This noise can interfere with the flywheel M/G hardware and the system avionics hampering the full speed performance of the flywheel system. One way to attenuate the inverter switching noise is by placing an AC filter at the three phase output terminals of the inverter with the filter neutral point connected to the DC link (DC bus) midpoint capacitors. The main benefit of using an AC filter in this fashion is the significant reduction of the inverter s high dv/dt switching and its harmonics components. Additionally, common mode (CM) and differential mode (DM) voltages caused by the inverter s high dv/dt switching are also reduced. Several topologies of AC filters have been implemented and compared. One AC filter topology consists of a two-stage R-L-C low pass filter. The other topology consists of the same two-stage R-L-C low pass filter with a series connected trap filter (an inductor and capacitor connected in parallel). This paper presents the analysis, design and experimental results of these AC filter topologies and the comparison between the no filter case and conventional AC filter.

Full Text Available In this paper, an interleaved high-power zero-current-switching (ZCS onboard charger (OBC based on the three-phase single-switch buck rectifier is proposed for application to plug-in electric vehicles (EVs. The multi-resonant structure is used to achieve high efficiency and high power density, which are necessary to reduce the volume and weight of the OBC. This study focuses on the border conditions of ZCS converting with a battery load, which means the variation ranges of the output voltage and current are very large. Furthermore, a novel hybrid control method combining pulse frequency modulation (PFM and pulse width modulation (PWM together is presented to ensure a driving frequency higher than 10 kHz, and this will reduce the unexpected inner resonant power flow and decrease the total harmonic distortion (THD of the input current under a light load at the end of the charging process. Finally, a prototype is established, and experiments are carried out. According to the experimental results, the conversion efficiency is higher than 93.5%, the THD about 4.3% and power factor (PF 0.98 under the maximum power output condition. Besides, a three-stage charging process is also carried out the experimental platform.

This paper investigates the active damping of LCL-filter resonance within single-loop grid current control of grid-connected voltage source converters. First, the basic analysis in the continuous s-domain reveals that the grid-current-feedback active damping forms a virtual impedance across the grid-side inductor, and the use of a high-pass filter with a negative sign shapes the virtual impedance by an RL damper paralleled by a negative inductance. It is further found that such a negative vir...

The proposed filter replaces the LCL filter capacitor with a traditional C-type filter with the resonant circuit tuned in such a way that...... switching harmonics due to pulse width modulation are to be cancelled. Since the tuned circuit of the C-type filter suppresses the switching harmonics more effectively, the total inductance of the filter can be reduced. Additionally, the rating of the damping resistor is lower, compared with conventional...

Full Text Available A reduced rating voltage-source converter with a zig-zag transformer as a distribution static compensator is proposed for power-quality improvement in the three-phase four-wire distribution system. The source voltages in the distribution systems are also experiencing power quality problems, such as harmonics, unbalance, flicker, sag, swell, etc. The distribution static compensator (DSTATCOM is proposed for compensating power quality problems in the current, and the dynamic voltage restorer (DVR is used for mitigating the power quality problems in the voltage. The zig-zag transformer is used for the neutral current compensation. Distribution systems are facing severe power-quality (PQ problems, such as poor voltage regulation, high reactive power and harmonics current burden, load unbalancing, excessive neutral current, etc. The zig-zag transformer is used for providing a path to the zero-sequence current. The DSTATCOM is used to improve the quality of power to the non linear loads. By using both zig-zag transformer and DSTATCOM in the distribution system the rating of the voltage source converter can be reduced. Hence it can be also called reduced rating device. The performance of the DSTATCOM is validated through extensive simulations using MATLAB software with its Simulink and power system block set toolboxes.

This paper deals with the theoretical analysis computer simulation and experimental results of IM fed by a one-to-three phase matrix converter which offers a unique solution for single phase electric traction applications. The proposed drive in comparison with currently used conventional drives reduces the number of power switching elements of the converter, which increases drives dependability and brings lower investment in power electronics used in drive. Further advantage is that the converter is controlled with nearly unity power factor which cuts down the operational expenses and offers higher overall performance of the drive. (orig.) 6 refs.

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
Srinu Duvvada
2014-07-01
Full Text Available In this paper, a buck half-bridge DC-DC converter is used as a single-stage power factor correction (PFC converter for feeding a voltage source inverter (VSI based permanent magnet brushless DC motor (BLDC drive. The front end of this PFC converter is a diode bridge rectifier (DBR fed from single-phase AC mains. The BLDC is used to drive a compressor load of an air conditioner through a three-phase VSI fed from a controlled DC link voltage. The speed of the compressor is controlled to achieve energy conservation using a concept of the voltage control at DC link proportional to the desired speed of the BLDC. Therefore the VSI is operated only as an electronic commutator of the BLDC. The stator current of the BLDC during step change of reference speed is controlled by a rate limiter for the reference voltage at DC link. The proposed BLDC drive with voltage control based PFC converter is designed, modeled and its performance is simulated in Matlab-Simulink environment for an air conditioner compressor driven through a 1.5 kW, 1500 rpm BLDC motor. The evaluation results of the proposed speed control scheme are presented to demonstrate an improved efficiency of the proposed drive system with PFC feature in wide range of the speed and an input AC voltage.

The connection of photovoltaic system on the grid takes place in one stage using voltage source inverter (VSI). For a better utilization of the photovoltaic system, the control strategy applied is based on p-q theory. According to this strategy during sunlight the system sends active power to the grid and at the same time compensates the reactive power of the load. In case there is no sunlight (during the night for instance), the inverter only compensates the reactive power of the load. In this paper the use of p-q theory to supply the grid with active power and compensate the reactive power of the load is investigated. The advantage of this control strategy is that the photovoltaic system is operated the whole day. Furthermore, the p-q theory uses simple algebraic calculations without demanding the use of PLL to synchronize the inverter with the grid. (author)
Dynamics of IGBT based PWM Converter A Case Study

Full Text Available Optimizing the efficiency and dynamics of power converters is a critical tradeoff in power electronics. The increase of switching frequency can improve the dynamics of power converters, but theefficiency may be degraded as well as the switching losses. As power semiconductor devices like diodes, MOSFETS, IGBTs, Thyristors, BJTs have their own characterstics and dynamic responses. It is desired toanalyze and observe the dynamics of different semiconductor devices before they actually employed in the model. Inclusion of different PWM techniques help in the removal of power line interferences like harmonic losses, unwanted ripples, chopped frequencies, spikes. In this paper, we have studied and analyzed the dynamics of IGBT based PWM converter with subjected to different conditions like transient state, steady state feeding the RLC load. Snubber circuits are used to reduce the switching losses. The IGBT based PWM converter reflects the better dynamics with improved efficiency and reduced harmonics as compared to some other power semiconductor devices when FFT is performed and subjected to standard parameterized RLC load understeady state and transient analysis.

Recent wind farm grid codes require wind generators to ride through voltage sags, which means that normal power production should be re-initiated once the nominal grid voltage is recovered. However, fixed speed wind turbine generator system using induction generator (IG) has the stability problem similar to the step-out phenomenon of a synchronous generator. On the other hand, doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) can control its real and reactive powers independently while being operated in variable speed mode. This paper proposes a new control strategy using DFIGs for stabilizing a wind farm composed of DFIGs and IGs, without incorporating additional FACTS devices. A new current controlled voltage source converter (CC-VSC) scheme is proposed to control the converters of DFIG and the performance is verified by comparing the results with those of voltage controlled voltage source converter (VC-VSC) scheme. Another salient feature of this study is to reduce the number of proportionate integral (PI) controllers used in the rotor side converter without degrading dynamic and transient performances. Moreover, DC-link protection scheme during grid fault can be omitted in the proposed scheme which reduces overall cost of the system. Extensive simulation analyses by using PSCAD/EMTDC are carried out to clarify the effectiveness of the proposed CC-VSC based control scheme of DFIGs.

Distortion-Free 1-Bit PWM Coding for Digital Audio Signals
John Mourjopoulos; Andreas Floros
2007-01-01
Although uniformly sampled pulse width modulation (UPWM) represents a very efficient digital audio coding scheme for digital-to-analog conversion and full-digital amplification, it suffers from strong harmonic distortions, as opposed to benign non-harmonic artifacts present in analog PWM (naturally sampled PWM, NPWM). Complete elimination of these distortions usually requires excessive oversampling of the source PCM audio signal, which results to impractical realizations of digital PWM syste...

A fuzzy controlled three-phase centrifuge for waste separation
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The three-phase centrifuge technology discussed in this paper was developed by Neal Miller, president of Centech, Inc. The three-phase centrifuge is an excellent device for cleaning up oil field and refinery wastes which are typically composed of hydrocarbons, water, and solids. The technology is unique. It turns the waste into salable oil, reusable water, and landfill-able solids. No secondary waste is produced. The problem is that only the inventor can set up and run the equipment well enough to provide an optimal cleanup. Demand for this device has far exceeded a one man operation. There is now a need for several centrifuges to be operated at different locations at the same time. This has produced a demand for an intelligent control system, one that could replace a highly skilled operator, or at least supplement the skills of a less experienced operator. The control problem is ideally suited to fuzzy logic, since the centrifuge is a highly complicated machine operated entirely by the skill and experience of the operator. A fuzzy control system was designed for and used with the centrifuge
Effects of 60Co ?-rays on PWM and LPS induced lymphocytes
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The relationship between lymphocytes induced by PWM and LPS was investigated by means of 3H-TdR and 14C-UR incorporation. The study showed that in votro, PWM-induced cells were able to promote the stimulating effect of LPS to B lymphocyte. The stimulating effect of PWM-induced cells was obviously weakened after PWM cells being irradiated with ?-rays. When PWM-induced cells and LPS-induced cells were incubated together, with one kind of cells exposed to 60Co ?-rays, incorporation value of 3H-TdR became much smaller and the synergetic function disappeared, especially, when PWM-induced cells were irradiated. For patients suffering from carcinoma of nasopharynx, when treated with 60Co ?-rays, the incorporation value in LPS-induced cells approached normal level, while the incorporation value in PWM-induced cells reduced significantly and the stimulating effect of PWM-induced cells on LPS-induced cells became much weaker. The fact described above demonstrated that PWM-induced cells have the function of T-helper cells and play a more important role in the synergy than LPS induced cells

The hydrodynamics and energy consumption have been studied in a cold flow, bubbling and turbulent, pressurized gas-liquid-solid three-phase fluidized bed (0.15 m ID x 1 m height) with concurrent gas-liquid up flow is proposed with the intention of increasing the gas hold up. The hydrodynamic behaviour is described and characterised by some specific gas and liquid velocities. Particles are easily fluidized and can be uniformly distributed over the whole height of the column. The effect of parameters like liquid flow rate, gas flow rate, particle loading, particle size, and solid density on gas hold up and effect of gas flow rate, solid density and particle size on solid hold up, energy consumption and minimum fluidization velocity has been studied. At the elevated pressures a superior method for better prediction of minimum fluidization velocity and terminal settling velocities has been adopted. The results have been interpreted with Bernoulli's theorem and Richardson-Zaki equation. Based on the assumption of the gas and liquid as a pretend fluid, a simplification has been made to predict the particle terminal settling velocities. The Richardson-Zaki parameter n' was compared with Renzo's results. A correlation has been proposed with the experimental results for the three-phase fluidization. (author)

2012-04-01
Full Text Available Three-phase two-stage boost rectifier with sinusoidal input current are presented and a novel topology with two active power devices is proposed. These contain a capacitor for pumping action in DC circuit. This gives twostage boost operation to obtain higher DC output voltage. The rectifier can be operated in the switch mode forpumping action and for forcing the input current to follow its sinusoidal reference independent of the working conditions. The results of the proposed rectifier are compared with those of the rectifier with a single active power device. The simulation result gives the better output DC voltage regulation under open loop condition. The simulated results prove that the proposed rectifier has the expected performance.

A controller formed by two nonlinear regulators is designed, using the Backstepping technique, to provide the above compensation. The regulation of the DC bus voltage of the inverter is ensured by the use of a diode bridge rectifier which its output is in parallel with the DC bus capacitor. The Analysis of controller performances is illustrated by numerical simulation in Matlab/Simulink environment.

Phase detector for three-phase power factor controller
Nola, F. J. (Inventor)
1984-01-01
A phase detector for the three phase power factor controller (PFC) is described. The phase detector for each phase includes an operational amplifier which senses the current phase angle for that phase by sensing the voltage across the phase thyristor. Common mode rejection is achieved by providing positive feedback between the input and output of the voltage sensing operational amplifier. this feedback preferably comprises a resistor connected between the output and input of the operational amplifier. The novelty of the invention resides in providing positive feedback such that switching of the operational amplifier is synchronized with switching of the voltage across the thyristor. The invention provides a solution to problems associated with high common mode voltage and enables use of lower cost components than would be required by other approaches.

Optimal anisotropic three-phase conducting composites: Plane problem
Cherkaev, Andrej
2010-01-01
The paper establishes tight lower bound for effective conductivity tensor $K_*$ of two-dimensional three-phase conducting anisotropic composites and defines optimal microstructures. It is assumed that three materials are mixed with fixed volume fractions and that the conductivity of one of the materials is infinite. The bound expands the Hashin-Shtrikman and Translation bounds to multiphase structures, it is derived using the technique of {\\em localized polyconvexity} that is a combination of Translation method and additional inequalities on the fields in the materials; similar technique was used by Nesi (1995) and Cherkaev (2009) for isotropic multiphase composites. This paper expands the bounds to the anisotropic composites. The lower bound of conductivity (G-closure) is a piece-wise analytic function of eigenvalues of $K_*$, that depends only on conductivities of components and their volume fractions. Also, we find optimal microstructures that realize the bounds, developing the technique suggested earlier ...
Transient three-phase three-component flow. Pt. 3
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
A mathematical model of a transient three-dimensional three-phase three-component flow described by three-velocity fields in porous body is presented. A combination of separated mass and energy equations together with mixture momentum equations for the flow is used. The mixture equations are used in diffusion form with the assumption that the diffusion velocity can be calculated from empirical correlations. An analytical coupling between the governing equations is developed for calculation of the pressure field. The system is discretized semiimplicitly in 3D-cylindrical space and different solution methods for the algebraic problem are presented. Finally, numerical examples and comparisons with experimental data demonstrate that the method presented is a powerful tool for numerical multiphase flow simulation. (orig.)
Three-phase radionuclide bone imaging in sports medicine
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Three-phase radionuclide bone (TPB) imaging was performed on 238 patients with sports-related injuries. A wide variety of lesions was encountered, but the most frequent lesions seen were stress fractures of the lower part of the leg at the junction of the middle and distal thirds of the posterior tibial cortex (42 of 79 lesions). There were no differences in the type, location, or distribution of lesions between males and females or between competitive and noncompetitive athletes. In 110 cases, bone stress lesions were often diagnosed when radiographs were normal, whereas subacute or chronic soft-tissue abnormalities had few specific scintigraphic features. TPB imaging provides significant early diagnostic information about bone stress lesions. Normal examination results (53 cases) exclude underlying osseous pathologic conditions
Cellular automata approach to three-phase traffic theory
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The cellular automata (CA) approach to traffic modelling is extended to allow for spatially homogeneous steady state solutions that cover a two-dimensional region in the flow-density plane. Hence these models fulfil a basic postulate of a three-phase traffic theory proposed by Kerner. This is achieved by a synchronization distance, within which a vehicle always tries to adjust its speed to that of the vehicle in front. In the CA models presented, the modelling of the free and safe speeds, the slow-to-start rules as well as some contributions to noise are based on the ideas of the Nagel-Schreckenberg-type modelling. It is shown that the proposed CA models can be very transparent and still reproduce the two main types of congested patterns (the general pattern and the synchronized flow pattern) as well as their dependence on the flows near an on-ramp, in qualitative agreement with the recently developed continuum version of the three-phase traffic theory (Kerner B S and Klenov S L 2002 J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 35 L31 ). These features are qualitatively different from those in previously considered CA traffic models. The probability of the breakdown phenomenon (i.e. of the phase transition from free flow to synchronized flow) as function of the flow rate to the on-ramp and of the flow rate on the road upstream of the on-ramp is investigated. The capacity drops at the on-ramp which occur due to the formation of different congested patterns are calculated

In this paper the hybrid wind farm connected to a weak grid is investigated. By combining different electrical wind power plant systems a cost-efficient solution is obtained. The point of common connection voltage level can be controlled by injecting reactive power from a phase-compensating capacitor battery and a voltage source inverter (VSI). If the short-circuit impedance ratio is lower than 1, the demanded reactive power injection to keep the voltage at nominal level is unrealistic. For short-circuit impedance ratios of 2 or higher the demanded reactive power level is acceptable. When using both induction generators and thyristor inverters the reactive power injector VSI size should be about 0.2 pu. If the hybrid farm consists of THYs, IGs and VSIs and the active power is equally shared between the systems, the VSI had to be scaled up by 5% to handle both active and reactive power. 7 refs, 10 figs, 2 tabs

Full Text Available This paper presents pulse width modulation technique for a direct ac-ac converter. The converter has seven-phase input supply and three-phase output. The input supply may be obtained from a seven-phase wind energy generation system with variable output voltage magnitude and frequency. The output of the proposed converter topology may be fed to the three-phase stiff grid system. Thus the requirement of the modulation of the ac-ac converter is to produce fixed voltage and fixed frequency output while the input can be variable. Additionally the output voltage gain should be high. Simple carrier-based PWM technique is suggested and harmonic injection scheme is proposed to enhance the output voltage magnitude. The output voltage reaches 90% of the input supply voltage with the proposed technique. An additional control block is used to stabilize the output voltage and frequency of the converter. Simulation results are shown in the paper for the verification of the proposed scheme.

Full Text Available Cascaded inverters are ideal for connecting renewable energy sources with an AC grid, because of the need for separate dc sources, which is the case in applications such as photo voltaics or fuel cells. The inverter could be controlled to either regulate the power factor of the current drawn from the source or the bus voltage of the electrical system where the inverter was connected. The modulation techniques are crucial in operating any inverter at desired conditions. In this paper different pwm techniques are implemented for three level and five level cascaded mli and THD variation is analysed with variation of modulation index.

ISOBUTANOL FROM SYNGAS IN A THREE PHASE SYSTEM

2002-12-29
With growing interest in oxygenates as octane booster for automotive fuels, various synthesis routes for these chemicals are being investigated. Among others, alternative routes to isobutene, the C4-components in MTBE-synthesis are under investigation. A promising path to isobutene is the heterogeneously catalyzed CO-hydrogenation to isobutanol with following dehydration (Fig. 1). As shown by thermodynamical studies, the heterogeneously catalyzed CO-hydrogenation to isobutanol is not expected to experience any thermodynamic constraints. However, heterogeneous hydrogenation of CO is a very exothermic process, a problem which can only be partly solved when being conducted in a plug flow reactor. When carried out in reaction vessels with moving catalyst bed (e.g. three phase stirred tank), heat transfer problems can be resolved, along with additional benefits connected with this reactor type. Several heterogeneous catalytic systems have been under investigation for their capability of isobutanol synthesis from syngas. Most promising catalysts for an active and selective isobutanol synthesis from CO are modified high temperature methanol catalysts.
Three-phase inverter for small high speed motors
Mccormick, John A.; Valenzuela, Javier A.
1991-01-01
A high-frequency three-phase inverter is being developed to drive a miniature centrifugal compressor which is a key component in a long-life space-borne cryocooler. The inverter is a unique transformer-coupled design, tailored to the low-voltage high-current characteristic of the compressor's induction motor. The design and performance demonstration of a breadboard model of the inverter are described. The cryocooler uses a reverse-Brayton cycle with turbomachines to provide 5 watt of cooling at 70 K. The design target for input power to the compressor motor is 175 watts. Line-to-neutral phase voltage waveforms to be supplied by the inverter have an amplitude of 15 volt-rms at a frequency of 8 kHz. DC power at 28 volt is supplied to the inverter. The breadboard inverter was tested with a preliminary development model of the compressor. It drove the compressor over a range of operating conditions encompassing frequencies of 5 to 9 kHz at powers of 56 to 437 watt. Inverter efficiencies, calculated from experimentally verified loss models, ranged from 89 to 95 percent over the tests. The design target on efficiency is 90 percent. The inverter was demonstrated to supply starting current adequate to overcome the starting friction of the compressor's self-acting gas bearings by a safe margin.
Bone graft viability evaluated by three phase bone scan
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Bone defects resulting war injury can be replaced by microvascular bone grafts from fibula. Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the value of three phase (3P) bone scintigraphy in the early detection of the bone graft complications. Method: 3P bone scans were performed in four patients (two after mandible reconstruction with micro vascular fibular bone grafts, one after fibular transplantation for ulnar and one with humeral reconstruction). First dynamic phase scan was performed immediately after iv injection of 740 MBq Tc-99m DPD, acquiring 15 two seconds duration frames. Second, early static scan was performed during next 300 seconds, and third, delayed scan three hours later. All scans were obtained under the bone graft region. The scans were evaluated using ROI under graft region and the corresponding contra lateral area. Blood flow in graft region was determined using first phase scan, and tracer uptake in the same region was determined using second and third phase scans. Results: in all patients blood flow in graft region was particularly normal. Tracer uptake in one of two patients with mandible reconstruction was diffusely increased in graft, strongly suggesting infection; In the other patient delayed scan showed no tracer uptake in graft center .Both patients with ulnar and humeral reconstruction showed only slightly decreased tracer uptake in bone grafts. 3 phase bone scintigraphy may play a role in the evaluation of bone graft viability by predicting the infection and necrosis.

Full Text Available The transient behavior in a three-phase trickle bed reactor system (N2/H2O-KCl/activated carbon, 298 K, 1.01 bar was evaluated using a dynamic tracer method. The system operated with liquid and gas phases flowing downward with constant gas flow Q G = 2.50 x 10-6 mÂ³ s-1 and the liquid phase flow (Q L varying in the range from 4.25x10-6 mÂ³ s-1 to 0.50x10-6 mÂ³ s-1. The evolution of the KCl concentration in the aqueous liquid phase was measured at the outlet of the reactor in response to the concentration increase at reactor inlet. A mathematical model was formulated and the solutions of the equations fitted to the measured tracer concentrations. The order of magnitude of the axial dispersion, liquid-solid mass transfer and partial wetting efficiency coefficients were estimated based on a numerical optimization procedure where the initial values of these coefficients, obtained by empirical correlations, were modified by comparing experimental and calculated tracer concentrations. The final optimized values of the coefficients were calculated by the minimization of a quadratic objective function. Three correlations were proposed to estimate the parameters values under the conditions employed. By comparing experimental and predicted tracer concentration step evolutions under different operating conditions the model was validated.

Three Phase Upward Flow in a Vertical Pipe
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Many specialized technologies need to be developed to deal with the mobilization, retrieval, transport and reliable delivery of large amounts of toxic and radioactive waste to pretreatment facilities. At these facilities the waste is prepared for long term, unsupervised storage. At Hanford as well as other DOE nuclear sites, there are many underground storage tanks that are holding many millions of gallons of toxic and radioactive waste. A class of these storage tanks can utilize pneumatic conveying for the retrieval of scarified solids that are occasionally laced with sticky sludge, followed by slurry transport to pretreatment facilities. The formation of a thin liquid film that travels upwards along the internal wall of a vertical retrieval pipe may prevent those particles that are laced with the sticky sludge from adhering to it and eventually causing instability and blockage. In this paper we develop an approach to the design of a three-phase gas-solid-liquid flow system that could transport scarified solid particles, including sticky particles, pneumatically through a vertical pipe. A liquid film is introduced and maintained along the pipe's inner wall to act as a lubricant that ensure that sticky particles will continue to be transported without permanently adhering to the pipe wall. The system's operating conditions are within the boundaries of the annular dispersed region on a typical flow pattern map of vertical flow of a gas-liquid mixture. High gas superficial velocities combined with low liquid superficial velocities, conditions that satisfy the requirement and geometry of our proposed system, characterize such a region

Full Text Available In order to improve the performance of space vector PWM (pulse width modulation, the optimization is widely used. The switching period optimization space vector PWM can reduce both total harmonic distortion and spectrum peaks, so it has important application prospects and has been widely discussed among several types of optimization strategies. Aiming at the characteristic of uncontrollable switching frequency, the study proposes an improved optimization method that can be used in both steady and non-steady states. The method uses a time window with adaptive width to control the average switching period and divides the value range of reference voltage vectors into two kinds of regions: R and Q based on period coefficients. Switching periods are dependent in the same time window, while independent in different windows. The total extra time between specified periods and optimal periods in region R can be made full use of in region Q. A simulation platform was built in software MATLAB/Simulink. The simulation result verifies excellent performance on harmonic distortion and amplitude peak reduction. The improved strategy has widespread applications in electric vehicles, industry automation and drives, household appliances and so on.

Full Text Available Compared with the three-phase, two-split-capacitor active power filter (3P2C-APF, the three-phase, four-leg active power filter (3P4L-APF has been widely used in three-phase, four-wire grid utility for power quality control due to its numerous advantages, such as higher current output capability, particularly in phase N, lower current and easier voltage control on the DC-side. However, designing the grid-connecting interface, which is between the voltage source converter (VSC and grid utility, is rather difficult due to the higher requirement for current ripple filtering in phase N, cross-coupling in four phases and lack of relevant design methodology and specification. In this paper, a four-branch LCL-type (4B-LCL grid-connecting interface is proposed for 3P4L-APF, which features better current ripple filtering performance without decreasing the current output capability in all phases. First, this paper describes the mathematical models of 4B-LCL in the fully-complex-vector form from the zero and non-zero sequence perspective, resulting in two independent and uniform equivalent circuits without cross coupling terms. Then, the 4B-LCL parameter design method based on the most comprehensive performance index is proposed, including three main stages as the specification: performance index requirement determination, fulfillment of that requirement, and verification. Finally, the validity and effectiveness of the proposed design are proven by the simulated and experimental results of a 3P4L-APF with 4B-LCL.

A variable inductor with magnetorheological (MR) fluid has been successfully applied to power electronics applications; however, its thermal characteristics have not been investigated. To evaluate the performance of the variable inductor with respect to temperature, we measured the characteristics of temperature rise and developed a numerical analysis technique. The characteristics of temperature rise were determined experimentally and verified numerically by adopting a multiphysics analysis technique. In order to accurately estimate the temperature distribution in a variable inductor with an MR fluid-gap, the thermal solver should import the heat source from the electromagnetic solver to solve the eddy current problem. To improve accuracy, the B-H curves of the MR fluid under operating temperature were obtained using the magnetic property measurement system. In addition, the Steinmetz equation was applied to evaluate the core loss in a ferrite core. The predicted temperature rise for a variable inductor showed good agreement with the experimental data and the developed numerical technique can be employed to design a variable inductor with a high-frequency pulsed voltage source.

This paper deals with a fault detection technique for insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) open-circuit faults in voltage source inverter (VSI)-fed induction motor drives. The novelty of this idea consists in analyzing the pulse-width modulation (PWM) switching signals and the line-to-line voltage levels during the switching times, under both healthy and faulty operating conditions. The proposed method requires line-to-line voltage measurement, which provides information about switching states and is not affected by the load. The fault diagnosis scheme is achieved using simple hardware and can be included in the existing inverter system without any difficulty. In addition, it allows not only accurate single and multiple faults diagnosis but also minimization of the fault detection time to a maximum of one switching period (T(c)). Simulated and experimental results on a 3-kW squirrel-cage induction motor drive are displayed to validate the feasibility and the effectiveness of the proposed strategy. PMID:22153956

Three-Phase Voltage Source Converters (VSCs) are finding widespread applications in grid integrated power conversion systems. The control systems of such VSCs are in an increasing number of these applications required to operate during voltage disturbances and unbalanced conditions. Control systems designed for grid side voltagesensor-less operation are at the same time becoming attractive due to the continuous drive for cost reduction and increased reliability of VSCs, but are not commonly applied for operation during unbalanced conditions. Methods for voltage-sensor-less grid synchronization and control of VSCs under unbalanced grid voltage conditions will therefore be the main focus of this Thesis. Estimation methods based on the concept of Virtual Flux, considering the integral of the converter voltage in analogy to the flux of an electric machine, are among the simplest and most well known techniques for achieving voltage-sensor-less grid synchronization. Most of the established techniques for Virtual Flux estimation are, however, either sensitive to grid frequency variations or they are not easily adaptable for operation under unbalanced grid voltage conditions. This Thesis addresses both these issues by proposing a simple approach for Virtual Flux estimation by utilizing a frequency-adaptive filter based on a Second Order Generalized Integrator (SOGI). The proposed approach can be used to achieve on-line frequency-adaptive varieties of conventional strategies for Virtual Flux estimation. The main advantage is, however, that the SOGI-based Virtual Flux estimation can be arranged in a structure that achieves inherent symmetrical component sequence separation under unbalanced conditions. The proposed method for Virtual Flux estimation can be used as a general basis for voltage-sensor-less grid synchronization and control during unbalanced conditions. In this Thesis, the estimated Virtual Flux signals are used to develop a flexible strategy for control of active and reactive power flow, formulated as generalized equations for current reference calculation. A simple, but general, implementation is therefore achieved, where the control objective and the power flow characteristics can be selected according to the requirements of any particular application. Thus, the same control structure can be used to achieve for instance balanced sinusoidal currents or elimination of double frequency active power oscillations during unbalanced conditions. In case of voltage sags, current references corresponding to a specified active or reactive power flow might exceed the current capability of the converter. The limits for active and reactive power transfer during unbalanced conditions have therefore been analyzed, and generalized strategies for current reference calculation when operating under current limitations have been derived. The specified objectives for active and reactive power flow characteristics can therefore be maintained during unbalanced grid conditions, while the average active and reactive power flow is limited to keep the current references within safe values. All concepts and techniques proposed in this Thesis have been verified by simulations and laboratory experiments. The SOGI-based method for Virtual Flux estimation and the strategies for active and reactive power control with current limitation can also be easily adapted for a wide range of applications and can be combined with various types of inner loop control structures. Therefore, the proposed approach can potentially be used as a general basis for Virtual Flux-based voltage-sensor-less operation of VSCs under unbalanced grid voltage conditions.(Author)

2013-06-01
Full Text Available High efficiency bridgeless single-phase ac-dc PWM cuk converter with soft-switching (ZVS technique is proposed. This paper emphasizes more on the converter efficiency. The conduction losses and input current harmonics of the proposed converter is very less due to the absence of the input diode bridge and also during each switching cycle, only two semiconductor switches are present in the current path unlike other conventional Cuk converters. Soft switching (ZVStechnique is applied by using an auxiliary circuit to improve the efficiency of the proposed converter. Output voltage regulating control technique is provided to regulate the output which also ultimately improves the efficiency. Power factor is almost unity due to less input current harmonics. The circuit configuration, principle of operation, design procedure and simulation results are presented.

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Highlights: â–º A new control method is proposed for three-phase to single-phase cycloconverters from balanced and unbalanced input voltages. â–º The proposed method has no limitation on frequency conversion and is independent of the load. â–º In proposed method, the low order harmonics are not generated in the input and output quantities. â–º The proposed method can be easily extended to three-phase to n-phase cycloconverters. â–º We demonstrate real experimental results of the power converter. - Abstract: In this paper, a new control method is proposed for three-phase to single-phase cycloconverters for synthesizing the desired output voltage from balanced and unbalanced input voltages. The theoretical analysis of the proposed control method is given for both of the conventional topologies of three-phase to single-phase cycloconverters. Using the proposed control method, the maximum output/input voltage transfer ratios are 0.5 and 1.5 for conventional cycloconverters that consist of three and six bidirectional switches, respectively. The proposed control method has no limitation on frequency conversion and is independent of the load. In other words, using the proposed control method, the three-phase to single-phase cycloconverter can operate as a generalized transformer. Using the proposed control method, the low order harmonics are not generated in the input and output quantities. As a result, the size of the required filters is decreased. The proposed control method can be easily extended to three-phase to n-phase cycloconverters based on the same principle of the operation. The simulation and experimental results verify the operation and performance of the proposed control method.

Full Text Available The speed of a three-phase induction motor can be varied within a wide range other thanÂ its rated value if its input parameters (frequency, voltages Â are varied properly. For industrial, mainly in knitting and some other sophisticated use of three-phase induction motor, precise and accurate control of the speed of the motor is necessary. The present three-phase inverter is so designed that its input parameters can be easily varied through proper software program and computer interfacing hardware. N-channel MOSFET is used as power device Â but may be replaced with IGBT. A special one way delay circuit is introduced to ensure non short circuit situation. The input frequency to the inverter can be varied byÂ varying the input voltage to the Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO. The proper input voltage to the inverter is set by Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR instructed by the computer. Though the frequency of the inverter can be varied between a wide range,Â the inter phase separation remains always 1200 yielding a true pattern of a three-phase power supply. Â Introduction of microcomputer and associate of software programs in three-phase induction motor control system as proposedÂ is accurate and reliable in terms of accurate and complex speed control of the motor.

This paper presents the operator allocation decision in labor-intensive manufacturing system using a three-phase methodology. A two-phase methodology from literatures has been extended to a three-phase methodology which in a three-phase methodology, operators' performance is evaluated before the allocation is made. The evaluation of operators' performance in Phase 1 is realized as a requirement in operator allocation decision because it will affect the production system's performance. In Phase 2, the used of computer simulation offered flexibility in determining inputs and outputs of each operator allocation alternative. Finally, in Phase 3 the optimal operator allocation is concluded. The combination of these three phases is essential because it includes all important factors. Hence, it will assist the management of the manufacturing companies, especially SMEs in providing ideas to determine an optimal operator allocation. Based on these findings a three-phase methodology improves the current operator allocation.

2014-05-01
Full Text Available Multiphase electric motors have smaller torque pulsations and are more reliable that their three-phase alternatives. However, standard electricity grids around the world are three-phase, so power inverter is needed to drive multiphase motors. Inverter is used not only to power the motor, but also to control the amÂplitude and frequency of the produced voltage, thus controlling motor speed and torque. Multiphase systems with odd number of phases have been widely investigated; therefore, this paper focuses on a six-phase inverter with a single neutral symmetrical load. A novel asymmetrical space vector modulation scheme is proposed and evaluated using simulations in Matlab/Simulink. Simulation results are compared to other modulation schemes. The proposed method is suitable for generating near-sinusoidal output voltages; however, it might not be suited for driving motors with sinusoidally distributed stator windings.

This paper proposes a Photovoltaic (PV)-based three-phase four-wire Series Hybrid Active Power Filter (SHAPF), it comprises of a Series Active Power Filter (SAPF) and an LC shunt passive filter. The proposed system eliminates both the current and voltage harmonics and compensates reactive power, neutral current and voltage interruption. A SAPF demands a source of energy for compensating the voltage sag/swell. This system found a new topology for SHAPF which utilizes the PV with DCâ€“DC boost converter as a source of DC power for the series active filter. The compensation current reference evaluation is based on the twin formulation of the vectorial theory of electrical power theorem with Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC). The PV array/battery managed DCâ€“DC boost converter is employed to step up the voltage to meet the DC bus voltage requirement of the three-leg Voltage Source Inverter (VSI). The foremost benefit of the proposed system is that, it will provide uninterrupted compensation for the whole day. This system utilizes the renewable energy; accordingly saves the energy and provides the uninterruptable power supply to critical/sensitive load, through the PV array/battery bank during both day time and night time. An experimental model was established and results were obtained, which indicated the capability of the proposed control scheme.
Method for Calculating Performance of Three-Phase Line-Start Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Motor
Takegami, Tsuneo; Tsuboi, Kazuo; Hirotsuka, Isao; Nakamura, Masanori
A three-phase line-start permanent-magnet synchronous motor (three-phase LSPMM) is expected to operate with ultrahigh efficiency because it can start as an induction motor and can then operate as a permanent-magnet synchronous motor. In a previous study, we developed a practical analytical theory for a three-phase LSPMM on the basis of a tensor analysis. Then, we developed (1) a method for calculating the asynchronous starting characteristics and synchronous operating characteristics of the three-phase LSPMM on the basis of the developed analytical theory and (2) a method for determining the constants of the three-phase LSPMM. Herein, we report the results of a comparison between the calculated and measured asynchronous starting characteristics and synchronous operating characteristics of a test three-phase LSPMM. The comparison results show that the developed calculation method is highly efficient and that the results obtained by using it are sufficiently precise, and therefore, the method is suitable for practical use. Furthermore, we propose a method for improving the starting performance of the three-phase LSPMM, on the basis of simulations performed using the calculation method.
Investigation of the effects of PWM parameters on ionic polymer metal composite actuators
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The effects of the PWM excitation signal parameters, such as frequency and magnitude, on the Nafion-based ionic polymer metal composite (IPMC) actuator response were found out. The first set of experiments was designed to observe the actuator response when the actuators were biased with constant DC voltages. These experimental results were exploited to build an experimental data based dynamic model. The model and these results were also used as references to evaluate the experimental results in the proceeding experiments. The second set of experiments was designed to observe the actuator response when the DC square wave signals at different frequencies (0 to 1000 Hz) were applied. The third set of experiments was designed to observe the actuator response when the PWM signals at different magnitudes (6, 8 and 10 V) were applied. It is observed that back relaxation reduces with increasing frequency, but after a certain frequency value, it remains approximately constant. It is seen that the input output relationship of the actuators are linear only for a range of PWM signal magnitudes. The observations in both the PWM frequency and the magnitude experiments indicated that the performance of the Nafion-based IPMC actuator could be improved by selecting a magnitude of PWM signals between 6â€“8 Volts and by selecting a frequency between 400â€“1000 Hz.

JANAPATI SIVAVARA PRASAD

Full Text Available
Half bridge (HB dcâ€“dc converter is an attractive topology for middle power level applications owing to its simplicity. This paper presents a new control scheme, to be known as duty-cycle shifted PWM (DCS PWM control, is proposed and applied to the conventional HB dcâ€“dc converters to achieve ZVS for one of the two switches without adding extra components and without adding asymmetric penalties of the complementary control. The concept of this new control scheme is shifting one of the two symmetric PWM driving signals close to the other, such that ZVS may be achieved for the lagging switch due to the shortened resonant interval. Moreover, based on the DCS PWM control, an active clamp branch comprising an auxiliary switch and a diode is added across the isolation transformer primary winding in the half bridge converter to achieve ZVS for the other main switch by utilizing energy stored in the transformer leakage inductance. Moreover, the auxiliary switch also operates at ZVS and ZCS conditions. In addition, the proposed topology with DCS PWM control eliminates the ringing resulting from the oscillation between the transformer leakage inductance and the switches junction capacitances during the off-time period. Therefore, the proposed converter has a potential to operate at higher efficiencies and switching frequencies.

Full Text Available In this fast aproaching nature of technology the ned of Electricity becomes a mandatory in developing technology. The ned of Electricity increases the power demand where the power demand met by the conventional sources of energy has some disadvantage of polution, this disadvantage can be decreased by the use of the Renewable energy sources like Fuel Cel and available solar energy. When a FUEL cel produces AC power, basicaly two stages are required for conversion first a bosting stage and second is inversion stage. In this paper the Bost inverter topology is achieved where in the conventional methods the normal DC - AC power conversion method is used where as in this paper the PWM based DC - AC inverter has ben used which is useful in reducing the harmonics in the output of the Inverter. The voltage controled output is produced in the bost inverter the curent controled output is taken from dc-dc bidirectional converter. The Fuel cel canot be relied as a whole so a Solar PV module is conected acros the Load so while the Sunlight days the PV arays generate power and in the night time the Fuel cel is used to generate power for the load. Since, the Fuel cel and PV arays can generate power in Partial load they are prefered than any other sources. When the output from the Solar PV aray is low or when the sunlight available is not eficient in generating the power a automatic switch over is provided in the junction betwen the Solar PV aray and Fuel cel so that whenever it hapens the switch automaticaly switch over to another source. The simulation results are presented to confirm the operational feature of the proposed system.
A deadbeat control method for a PWM converter applied to a superconducting magnet
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Current-type pulse-width-modulated (PWM) converter is regarded as one of the candidates for the superconducting magnet power supplies in next generation tokamak devices. However, this type PWM converter has a problem of the transient oscillation of the reactor current and capacitor voltage in an AC-side harmonic filter, which occurs owing to the LC resonance of the filter when the reference of the DC output current is changed rapidly. In this paper, the new PWM control method based on the deadbeat control theory is proposed to suppress the transient oscillation. The converter employing this method can control the reactor current and capacitor voltage in one sampling period under ideal conditions. In addition, the effect of dead time on the control is discussed. The performance of the newly proposed method is demonstrated through numerical circuit simulation
Isolated PDM and PWM DC-AC SICAMs[Pulse Density Modulated; Pulse Width Modulated
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Ljusev, P.
2004-03-15
In this report a class of isolated PDM and PWM DC-AC SICAMs is described, which introduce the audio reference only in the output stage. AC-DC power supply is implemented in its simplest form: diode rectifier followed by a medium-size charge-storage capacitor. Isolation from the AC mains is achieved using a high frequency (HF) transformer, receiving the HF voltage pulses from the input 'inverter' stage and transferring them to the output 'rectifier+inverter' stage, which can use either PDM or PWM. The latter stage is then interfaced to the load using an output low-pass filter. Each of the dedicated stages is discussed in detail. Measurements on the master/slave PWM DC-AC SICAM prototype are presented to help benchmarking the performance of this class of SICAMs and identify the advantages and drawbacks. (au)

Full Text Available This thesis presents High frequency Soft Switching DC-DC boost Converter. The circuit consists of a general Boost Converter with an additional resonant circuit which has a switch, inductor, capacitor and a diode.In general Boost Converter circuits have snubber circuits where switching losses are dissipated in external passive resistors; which is known as hard switching. As the switching frequency of PWM converters is increased its switching losses and conduction losses also increases. This restricts the use of PWM technique. New Zero Voltage Transition-Zero Current Transition (ZVT-ZCT PWM converter equipped with the snubber provides the most desirable features of both ZVT and ZCT converters presented previously. Moreover all semiconductors devices operate with soft switching and hence losses are reduced.
