    Senturk, Osman Selcuk; Helle, Lars; Munk-Nielsen, Stig; Rodriguez, Pedro; Teodorescu, Remus

    This paper proposes a single leg switched or a hybrid PWM (HPWM) method for three-phase three-level H-Bridge Voltage Source Converters (3L-HB-VSCs). By means of the proposed modulation, a 3L-HB-VSC can generate the same output as a three-level neutral point clamped (3L-NPC) VSC with phase...... disposition (PD) PWM provided that the outputs of 3L-HBVSC are isolated by transformers or connected to open winding machines. Thus, the proposed method is called PD-HPWM. Moreover, it is emphasized that 3L-HB-VSC with HPWM utilizes its switches similar to 3L-NPC-VSC. Compared to 3L-NPC-VSCs, 3L......-HB-VSCs (without neutral point clamping diodes) have simpler, more modular, and more reliable 2L circuit structure. Therefore, this method encourages the use of 3L-HB-VSCs in the applications utilizing transformers such as grid-side converters of multi-MW wind turbines. The proposed PWM method's performance is...

  14. Analysis of Discontinuous Space Vector PWM Techniques for a Seven-Phase Voltage Source Inverter

    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.

  3. Analysis of Peak-to-Peak Current Ripple Amplitude in Seven-Phase PWM Voltage Source Inverters

    Gabriele Grandi

    2013-08-01

    Full Text Available Multiphase systems are nowadays considered for various industrial applications. Numerous pulse width modulation (PWM schemes for multiphase voltage source inverters with sinusoidal outputs have been developed, but no detailed analysis of the impact of these modulation schemes on the output peak-to-peak current ripple amplitude has been reported. Determination of current ripple in multiphase PWM voltage source inverters is important for both design and control purposes. This paper gives the complete analysis of the peak-to-peak current ripple distribution over a fundamental period for multiphase inverters, with particular reference to seven-phase VSIs. In particular, peak-to-peak current ripple amplitude is analytically determined as a function of the modulation index, and a simplified expression to get its maximum value is carried out. Although reference is made to the centered symmetrical PWM, being the most simple and effective solution to maximize the DC bus utilization, leading to a nearly-optimal modulation to minimize the RMS of the current ripple, the analysis can be readily extended to either discontinuous or asymmetrical modulations, both carrier-based and space vector PWM. A similar approach can be usefully applied to any phase number. The analytical developments for all different sub-cases are verified by numerical simulations.

  13. 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 “Half Pulse Shift”, 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.

  1. A Passive EMI Filter with Access to the Ungrounded Motor Neutral Line-The Case that a General-Purpose Inverter is Directly Connected to a Three-Phase Grounded Voltage Source-

    Doumoto, Takafumi; Akagi, Hirofumi

    This paper proposes a small-sized passive EMI filter for the purpose of eliminating high-frequency shaft voltage and ground leakage current from an ac motor. The motor is driven by a general-purpose PWM inverter connected to a three-phase grounded voltage source. The passive EMI filter requires access to the ungrounded neutral point of the motor. This unique circuit configuration makes the common-mode inductor effective in reducing the high-frequency common-mode voltage generated by the PWM inverter with a carrier frequency of 15kHz. As a result, both high-frequency shaft voltage and ground leakage current can be eliminated very efficiently. However, the common-mode inductor may not play any role in reducing the low-frequency common-mode voltage generated by the diode rectifier, so that a low-frequency component still remains in the shaft voltage. Such a low-frequency shaft voltage may not produce any bad effect on motor bearings.

    2013-06-01

    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 (a–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.

  4. An Optimal PR Control Strategy with Load Current Observer for a Three-Phase Voltage Source Inverter

    Xiaobo Dou

    2015-07-01

    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  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.

    2012-11-01

    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. Simulations are performed using MATLAB-SIMULINK.

  7. An Approach to Suppressing Both Shaft Voltage and Leakage Current in an AC Motor Driven by a Voltage-Source PWM Inverter

    Doumoto, Takafumi; Akagi, Hirofumi

    This paper proposes a practical approach to suppressing both shaft voltage and leakage current in an ac motor driven by a voltage-source PWM inverter. This approach is characterized by using a neutral line of the ac motor. A common-mode inductor is connected between the inverter and the motor. Moreover, a resistor and a capacitor are connected in series between the motor neutral point and the inverter negative dc bus. This unique circuit configuration makes the common-mode inductor effective in reducing the common-mode voltage appearing at the motor terminals. As a result, both shaft voltage and ground current are significantly suppressed with low cost. Over-voltages at the end of a cable can be suppressed by a normal-mode inductor and a resistor which are connected in parallel. The validity and effectiveness of the new approach are verified by experimental results from a 5-kVA laboratory system.

    This thesis is mainly concerned with investigations into digital repetitive current control of two-level and interleaved utility connected PWM converters. The research is motivated by the relatively poor performance of classical (PI) controllers when the utility voltage harmonic distortion is high.

  13. PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF THREE PHASE SCALAR CONTROLLED PWM RECTIFIER USING DIFFERENT CARRIER AND MODULATING SIGNAL

    J. CHELLADURAI

    2015-04-01

    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.

  14. Control strategy for three-phase four-wire PWM converter of integrated voltage compensation type active SFCL

    The integrated voltage compensation type active superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) is composed of three air-core superconducting transformers and a three-phase four-wire PWM converter. In order to realize the current-limiting characteristics of the integrated active SFCL, it is needed to control the three-phase four-wire PWM converter flexibly and reasonably. Thereby, the control strategy for the converter is analyzed in this paper. In dq0 reference frame, the mathematical model of the converter is founded. The double-loop control strategy, consisting of voltage outer loop and current inner loop, is presented. Moreover, the voltage balance control for the split DC link capacitors is also considered. Using MATLAB, the simulation model of the integrated active SFCL is built. According to the simulation results, it is known that, the presented control strategy is feasible and valid, and the converter can work well under unsymmetrical and symmetrical fault conditions, and then the fault current can be limited quickly and effectively.

  17. Practical Aspects of Broken Rotor Bars Detection in PWM Voltage-Source-Inverter-Fed Squirrel-Cage Induction Motors

    Hong-yu Zhu

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Broken rotor bars fault detection in inverter-fed squirrel cage induction motors is still as difficult as the dynamics introduced by the control system or the dynamically changing excitation (stator frequency. This paper introduces a novel fault diagnosis techniques using motor current signature analysis (MCSA to solve the problems. Switching function concept and frequency modulation theory are firstly used to model fault current signal. The competency of the amplitude of the sideband components at frequencies (1±2sfs as indices for broken bars recognition is subsequently studied in the controlled motor via open-loop constant voltage/frequency control method. The proposed techniques are composed of five modules of anti-aliasing signal acquisition, optimal-slip-estimation based on torque-speed characteristic curve of squirrel cage motor with different load types, fault characteristic frequency determination, nonparametric spectrum estimation, and fault identification for achieving MCSA efficiently. Experimental and simulation results obtained on 3 kW three-phase squirrel-cage induction motors show that the model and the proposed techniques are effective and accurate.

    Boudjerda, Nasserdine; Boudouda, Aimad; Melit, Mohammed; Nekhoul, Bachir; El Khamlichi Drissi, Khalil; Kerroum, Kamal

    2014-03-01

    Randomised pulse width modulation (RPWM) technique has become a viable alternative to deterministic pulse width modulation (DPWM). By spreading the power spectrum in a continuous noise, this new technique better complies with electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements for conducted electromagnetic interferences (EMI) and allows reducing the emitted acoustic noise in variable speed drives (VSDs). The most popular RPWM schemes are randomised pulse position modulation (RPPM) and randomised carrier frequency modulation (RCFM). The combination (RCFM-RPPM) or dual RPWM (DRPWM) has also been proposed. In this article, we propose an optimised DRPWM (ODRPWM) for the three-phase inverter. First, the modulating principle is proposed, and then, a mathematical model of power spectral density (PSD) of the output voltage is developed and validated for the three schemes, namely RPPM, RCFM and RCFM-RPPM. PSD analysis shows that the proposed scheme is more effective on spreading PSD. Moreover, this analysis reveals optimal parameters of randomisation for a maximum spread of the PSD. The optimisation problem is then modelled and solved using two powerful non-linear methods.

  2. Design and implementation of predictive current control of three-phase PWM rectifier using space-vector modulation (SVM)

    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 α-β 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.

  3. High-performance control of a three-phase voltage-source converter including feedforward compensation of the estimated load current

    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.

    The main circuit configuration and control method were proposed of the high-frequency link DC/AC converter using a three-phase output cycloconverter for UPSs (uninterruptible power supply). The control function approach of the previously proposed PWM controlled cycloconverter was applied to control of the proposed cycloconverter which converts single-phase high-frequency power into three-phase commercial frequency one. The proposed converter could not only charge DC power supplies from a power system but also compensate enough instantaneous reactive power for loads. The circuit configuration was, in particular, effective for such DC power supplies as fuel cell and solar cell which are possible to generate electric power and necessary to be insulated electrically against a power system. The isolated operation and cooperative one of the proposed DC/AC converter were verified by simulation and experiments. 4 refs., 14 figs., 1 tab.

  13. Design and implementation of high performance direct power control of three-phase PWM rectifier, via fuzzy and PI controller for output voltage regulation

    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

The performance of conventional control methods will degrade due to parameter uncertainties and parameter variations. To deal with this problem, a robust variable structure control is proposed to alleviate the performance degradation caused by parameter uncertainty;meanwhile, the time-varying boundary layer is employed to decrease the chattering of the control force. Simulation and experimental results show that, compared to traditional PI control and feedback linearization control method, the proposed method not only has nice transient and steady state performances under nominal parameters, but also has better robustness against parameter perturbations.

The complex power loop is replaced by the simple voltage loop and current loop to simplify the algorithm and save the space of digital signal processor. The voltage loop using PI regnlation could keep the output voltage constant, while the current loop using phase tracking technique could make the rectifier gain higher power factor. Soft-start devices were added behind the inductors to make DC voltage up to steady- state voltage smoothly at the moment of the rectifier device turned on.%目前三相功率因数校正技术广泛应用于PWM整流环节,而预测电流控制则是实现单位功率因数的一种有效控制策略。这种控制方式有效地解决了网侧电压电流相位校正的问题,以简单的电压环和电流环替代原有的复杂的功率环,既简化了算法程序,又节省了数字信号处理器的资源。电压环采用PI调节器,可以稳定调节直流输出电压,电流环采用相位跟踪技术,可以使整流器获得较高的功率因数。此PWM整流器在网侧添加双向可控硅控制的软启动装置,使直流侧输出电压在装置上电瞬间平稳上升至稳态电压。

  19. Advanced High Power DC-DC Converter using A Novel Type Voltage Source Full-Bridge Soft-Switching PWM Inverter with High Frequency Transformer Link for Arc Welding Applications

    Morimoto, Keiki; Doi, Toshimitsu; Manabe, Haruhiko; Ahmed, Tarek; Hiraki, Eiji; Lee, Hyun-Woo; Nakaoka, Mutsuo

    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.

    屈克庆; 陈国呈; 孙承波

    2005-01-01

    A novel software implementation for current polarity detection and current compensation is presented. For a three-phase zero-voltage soft-switching (ZVS) PWM converter based on phase and amplitude control (PAC), when saw-tooth carriers with alternate positive and negative slopes are adopted, the positive or negative slopes are chosen according to the phase current polarity. Since polarity reversal causes current distortion, current at the instant of reversal should be compensated for. Based on the characteristic of unity power factor converter in rectification and regeneration modes, a software implementation for current polarity detection is proposed.Distortion of current zero-crossing caused by using saw-tooth carriers with alternate positive and negative slopes is analyzed, and the relevant compensation method is proposed. Experimental study with a 1.5 kW device shows that phase current has a small harmonic content and power factor is high both in rectification and regeneration modes.

    2016-01-01

    This paper proposed a programmed pulse width modulation strategy for two-level voltage source inverters based on the on-line programming of the special solutions of the volt-second balance equations with multi-objective satisfactory optimization (MSO-PWM). The global optimum special solutions for the targets that linear modulation range extension, current ripple losses minimization and switching losses minimization were respectively obtained by solving the established mathematic programming model. Meanwhile, the contradiction between different targets was analyzed in nature. The satisfactory optimization with the process of relaxing the satisfying degree of single object was introduced to avoid the insoluble phenomenon caused by the contradiction, thus realizing the three-objective satisfactory optimization. Compared to the existing local optimization pulse width modulation strategies, the MSO-PWM can adjust the importance of single objective flexibly by selecting an appropriate switching loss coefficient limitation according to the preference of the decision maker to satisfy the demand of different fields, which make it universal and flexible. In addition, MSO-PWM can give consideration to other targets when focus on the most important target, thus, it can achieve multi-objective satisfactory optimization. Experimental results show that the proposed strategy is effective and flexible.%提出了一种基于伏秒平衡方程组特解在线规划的新型多目标满意脉宽调制策略(multi-objective satisfactory optimization PWM,MSO-PWM)。首先,针对单个载波周期内线性调制范围扩展、输出电流纹波损耗与开关损耗3个优化目标分别建立了时域数学规划模型,并求解各自的全局最优解,实现了单个目标的全局最优化。通过对3个目标的全局最优解的分析,揭示了不同优化目标之间矛盾的本质原因,通过引入满意优化的思想,以多目标满意取代单目标最优,并

    2016-05-01

    Full Text Available This paper gives the complete analysis of the output current ripple in three-phase voltage source inverters considering the different discontinuous pulse-width modulation (DPWM strategies. In particular, peak-to-peak current ripple amplitude is analytically evaluated over the fundamental period and compared among the most used DPWMs, including positive and negative clamped (DPWM+ and DPWM−, and the four possible combinations between them, usually named as DPWM0, DPWM1, DPWM2, and DPWM3. The maximum and the average values of peak-to-peak current ripple are estimated, and a simple method to correlate the ripple envelope with the ripple rms is proposed and verified. Furthermore, all the results obtained by DPWMs are compared to the centered pulse-width modulation (CPWM, equivalent to the space vector modulation to identify the optimal pulse-width modulation (PWM strategy as a function of the modulation index, taking into account the different average switching frequency. In this way, the PWM technique providing for the minimum output current ripple is identified over the whole modulation range. The analytical developments and the main results are experimentally verified by current ripple measurements with a three-phase PWM inverter prototype supplying an induction motor load.

  9. High performance direct instantaneous power control of PWM rectifiers

    This paper presents a new direct instantaneous power control (DPC) strategy for active rectifiers. In this novel scheme the PWM modulator has been utilized instead of the hysteresis comparators and switching table. The required converter voltage in each sampling period is directly calculated based on the reference and measured values of powers, system parameters, and the measured voltage of the AC source through simple equations which are wisely compensated for variations of the grid voltage during a sampling period. Then, the PWM generator generates the switching pulses for the voltage source converter. It is shown that the proposed DPC-PWM exhibits several features, such as a simple algorithm, constant switching frequency, robust to sampling frequency changes, robust to inductance values mismatch, and particularly it provides low sampling frequency. Extensive simulation and experimental results have proven the excellent performance and verify the validity and effectiveness of the proposed instantaneous power control scheme.

    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.

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.

    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.

    Full Text Available This paper focuses on a second order sliding mode based direct power controller (SOSM-DPC of a three-phase grid-connected voltage source converter (VSC. The proposed control scheme combined with fuzzy logic aims at regulating the DC-link voltage of the converter and precisely tracking arbitrary power references, in order to easily control the system’s power factor. Therefore measures are proposed to reduce the chattering effects inherent to sliding-mode control (SMC.

    2016-03-01

    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.

    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 7×10-7 over 6.5 h and a noise level equal or smaller than 30 nV/√Hz is achieved.

    2009-07-01

    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.

    2010-05-01

    Full Text Available Analysis and minimization of output current ripple of multiphase carrier-based PWM inverters are presented in this paper. Analytical expression of rms value of output current ripple of multiphase PWM inverters as a function of the reference signal is first derived. Based on this expression, it is shown that a pure sinusoidal signal is the optimum reference signal that results in minimum output current ripple. Different to three-phase PWM inverters, injection of harmonics into the sinusoidal reference signal is neither necessary nor useful. The rms values of output current ripple of 5-, 7-, and 9-phase PWM inverters under various reference signals are compared. Experimental results are included to show the validity of the analysis method.

    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.

  14. Mitigation of Lower Order Harmonics with Filtered Svpwm In Multiphase Voltage Source Inverters

    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.

    2006-01-01

    The brushless DC motor (BLDCM) with trapezoidal electromotive force (back-EMF) waveform is used widely.In principle,when the motor runs in the 120°conduction mode,two of the three phases are active while the other phase is inactive at all times.However,a ripple current occurs in the inactive phase due to the diode freewheeling during the non-commutation period in the traditional pulse width modulation (PWM) methods,which aggravates the torque ripples.A new PWM method is proposed in this paper to eliminate the diode freewheeling during the non-commutation period in the inactive phase.As a result,the torque ripple is suppressed using the proposed method.The simulation and experimental results are demonstrated to verify the validity of the proposed PWM method.

  3. 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 “Direct Space Vector PWM (Direct SVPWM)” 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.

  7. Comparative study of SVPWM (space vector pulse width modulation) and SPWM (sinusoidal pulse width modulation) based three phase voltage source inverters for variable speed drive

    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)

  9. Selection of Carrier Waveforms for PWM Inverter

    陈国呈; 屈克庆; 许春雨; 孙承波

    2003-01-01

    In this paper the influence of different carrier waveforms upon the output characteristics of PWM inverter is described in detail. When a triangular carrier waveform is used in hard-switching PWM inverters, harmonics exist in the neighborhood of the output frequency of the inverter output voltage and current due to the dead time. The triangular carrier waveform used in soft-switching PWM inverter will cause difficulties in controlling resonance-trigger time, higher loss in the resonant circuit, and less utilization of the DC bus voltage. If a sawtooth carrier is used in hard-switching PWM inverter, there will be severe distortion in the current waveform. When sawtooth carriers with alternate positive and negative slopes are used in soft-switching PWM inverters, the resonancetrigger time is easy to control, and distortion in the output voltage and current caused by the dead time will not appear.

    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.

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.

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).

    Full Text Available This paper proposes a sliding mode control strategy for a three-phase shunt active power filter. The SAPF consists of four-leg voltage source inverter bridge. The SAPF ensures full compensation for harmonic phase currents, harmonic neutral current, reactive power compensation and unbalanced nonlinear load currents. The modulation task can be carried out with three dimensional space vector modulation, which operate under a constant switching frequency. The simulation results show that the performance of the four-leg SAPF with the proposed control algorithm – compared with PI controller - is found considerably effective and adequate to compensate harmonics, reactive power, neutral current and balance load currents.

    Vikas Kumar; Prerna Gaur; A P Mittal

    2014-12-01

    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.

    2008-07-01

    Three phase rectifiers with switching frequencies of 500 kHz or more require high speed current controllers. At such high switching frequencies analog controllers as well as high speed digital signal processing (DSP) systems have limited performance. In this paper, two high speed current controller implementations using two different field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) - one for switching frequencies up to 1 MHz and one for switching frequencies beyond 1 MHz - are presented to overcome this performance limitation. Starting with the digital system design all the blocks of the signal chain, containing analog-to-digital (A/D) interface, digital controller implementation using HW-multipliers and implementation of a novel high speed, high resolution pulse width modulation (PWM) are discussed and compared. Final measurements verify the performance of the controllers. (author)

    Jussila, Matti; Salo, Mika; Kaehkoenen, Lauri; Tuusa, Heikki

    2004-07-01

    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)

    Coimbra, Cynthia Gisele de Oliveira; Lopes, Carlos Edison; Calazans, Glícia Maria Torres

    2010-06-01

    During the fructose and polymerization to synthesize levan, smaller fructooligosaccharide (FOS) molecules are produced. FOS can also be obtained by levan hydrolysis. Three-phase partitioning (TPP) is a separation technique that has been used for polysaccharide precipitation and gathers t-butanol and ammonium sulphate to exclude the polymer from the aqueous solution. In this work TPP was tested to separate levan and FOS from aqueous solution. The FOS used was obtained from Zymomonas mobilis levan acid hydrolysis and fractionation with ethanol. The yield of low TPP fractions was higher than those obtained from the native levan. The F-90 exhibited a higher yield than other fractions. However, when applying the TPP technique to lightest fraction not precipitated by ethanol at 90% (F>90), the intermediate phase was not possible to be visualize. These results have potential application because they show that by using the levan TPP separation it is possible to separate low-molecular weight sugar. PMID:20163956

    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.

  18. Variable speed wind turbine generator system with current controlled voltage source inverter

    highlights: → Current controlled voltage source inverter scheme for wind power application. → Low voltage ride through of wind farm. → Variable speed wind turbine driven permanent magnet synchronous generator-operation and control. -- Abstract: The present popular trend of wind power generation is to use variable speed wind turbine (VSWT) driving a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG), wound field synchronous generator (WFSG) or permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG). Among them, stability analyses of DFIG type of VSWT have already been reported in many literatures. However, transient stability and low voltage ride through (LVRT) characteristics analyses for synchronous generator type of VSWT is not sufficient enough. This paper focuses on detailed LVRT characteristic analysis of variable speed wind turbine driving a PMSG (VSWT-PMSG) with current controlled voltage source inverter (CC-VSI). Modeling and suitable control strategies for overall system are developed to augment the low voltage ride through capability of variable speed wind generator, considering recent wind farm grid code. Both symmetrical and unsymmetrical faults are analyzed as network disturbances in this paper. The permanent fault due to unsuccessful reclosing of circuit breakers is taken into consideration, which is a salient feature of this study. Moreover, the dynamic characteristic is analyzed using real wind speed data measured in Hokkaido Island, Japan. The proposed control scheme is simulated by using the standard power system simulation package PSCAD/EMTDC and results are verified by comparing that of voltage controlled voltage source inverter scheme available in power system literature.

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 MΩ 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

    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.

    2016-07-01

    This study proposes a single-phase to three-phase power conversion interface which converts the power from a single-phase utility to three-phase power for a three-phase load. The proposed single-phase to three-phase power conversion interface comprises a bridge-type switch set, a set of three-phase inductors, a transformer set and a set of three-phase capacitors. A current-mode control controls the switching of bridge-type switch set, to generate a set of nonzero-sequence (NZS) currents and a set of zero-sequence (ZS) currents. The transformer set is used to decouple the NZS currents and the ZS currents. The NZS currents are used to generate a high-quality three-phase voltage that supplies power to a three-phase load. The ZS currents flow to the single-phase utility so that the utility current is sinusoidal and in phase with the utility voltage. Accordingly, only a bridge-type switch set is used in the single-phase to three-phase power conversion interface to simply the power circuit. A prototype is developed and tested to verify the performance of the proposed single-phase to three-phase power conversion interface.

    In respect of the construction of motor as the driving source of electric vehicle, there are two means as inverter-driving induction motors and DC brushless motors. Both of said means have the merits and demerits respectively as DC brushless motor has the excellent driving efficiency in low speed region and the advantage to deal with the trouble of inverter by the brake of power generation while the problems thereof are the filed-weakening control like induction motors is difficult in the practical use and a position sensor is necessary. In this paper, the electric vehicle are used as the object of the research for studying the construction and controlling method of brushless motor without position sensor, the control of the constant output in high speed region, and the starting as well as braking methods of the motor. Using current-source PWM inverter is the characteristic of this means. It is indicated by the comparative investigation with respect to the operating characteristics between the present means and the system using voltage-source inverter to the same synchronous machine that for the latter system the filter at the output side is indispensable and the values of the operating characteristics, efficiency, etc., in the brushless control are lower than those of the present means. 7 refs., 9 figs., 1 tab.

  10. Apparatus and method for heat-run test on high-power PWM converters with low energy expenditure

    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.

    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.

  13. 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.

    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. (author)

    Bogimi Sirisha

    2012-03-01

    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.

  1. Push-Pull Converter Fed Three-Phase Inverter for Residential and Motor Load

    Samuel Rajesh Babu

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available The proposed paper is an new approach for power conditioning of a PV (photo-voltaic cell array. The main objective is to investigate an approach to provide and improve the delivered electric energy by means of power conditioning structures with the use of alternative renewable resources (ARRs for remote rural residential or industrial non-linear loads. This approach employs a series-combined connected boost and buck boost DC-DC converter for power conditioning of the dc voltage provided by a photo-voltaic array. The input voltage to the combined converters is 100 V provided from two series connected PV cells, which is converted and increased to 200 V at the dc output voltage. Series-combined connected boost and buck-boost DC-DC converters operate  alternatively. This helps to reduce the input ripple current and provide the required 400 Vdc on a sinusoidal PWM three-phase inverter. Analysis of the two series-combined DC-DC converters is presented along with simulation results. Simulations of the series-combined DC-DC converters are presented with an output DC voltage of 200 V and a maximum output load of Po = 600 W.

  2. Effects of geometrical factors on iron loss increase in wound toroidal cores energized by pulse width modulated voltage sources

    The pulse width modulated (PWM) inverter power supplies have been used increasingly to drive many electromagnetic devices for various purposes. When typical magnetic cores are energized by such voltage waveforms, additional iron losses occur due to distorted flux waveform. Most of these losses are due to an increase in frequency dependent losses. It should be noted that core geometry may also affect total power loss increase under PWM voltage excitation. This is because of a different magnetization process with respect to sinusoidal excitation. The effects of geometrical factors on magnetic properties of wound toroidal cores made of 3% grain oriented electrical steel were investigated. The results indicated that geometrical factors affect an iron loss increase under PWM voltage excitation as well as under sinusoidal excitation. The aspect ratio is particularly important in this regard

  3. An improved fault-tolerant control scheme for PWM inverter-fed induction motor-based EVs.

    2013-11-01

    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.

    Reservoir engineering calculations frequently require consideration of coexisting oil, water, and gas phases. Such three-phase flow occurs when oil is displaced by simultaneous gas/water flow as in CO{sub 2}, water-alternating-gas flooding, steam-flooding, or other enhanced recovery processes. For this reason, reservoir simulators generally include three-phase relative permeability prediction methods. This paper presents two- and three-phase relative permeabilities measured on a water-wet fired Berea sandstone core with a fully automated steady-state method to investigate prediction methods experimentally.

    This paper provides insight into the testing of three-phase equipment exposed to voltage sags caused by faults. The voltage sag recovers at the fault-current zeros, leading to a `discrete' voltage recovery, that is, the fault is cleared in different steps. In the literature, the most widespread classification divides `discrete' sags into 14 types. The authors study shows that it is generally sufficient to consider only five sag types for three-phase equipment, here called `time-invariant (TI)...

  16. 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 the damping torque analysis of power system oscillation stability as affected by the dynamic and control functions of an embedded voltage source converter(VSC).The objective of the study is to explain why and how the dynamic and basic control functions of the embedded VSC,ac and dc voltage regulation,provide damping to power system oscillations.The most important conclusion obtained in the paper is that both the dynamics and the dc voltage control of the VSC contribute a variable damping torque,which can be positive or negative,at different levels of system load conditions.More positive damping torque can be provided by the VSC at a heavier load condition.There exists a point of system load condition where the VSC provides no damping torque to power system oscillation hence dose not impose any influence on power system oscillation stability.The VSC studied in the paper can be the power-electronics-based interface of various FACTS(flexible ac transmission systems) devices,energy storage systems and renewable power generation units,although the focus of the discussion presented in this paper is the effect of the dynamics and basic control functions of the VSC themselves on power system oscillation damping.To demonstrate the analytical conclusions obtained in the paper,results of eigenvalue computation and nonlinear simulation of an example power system with STATCOM(static synchronous compensator) are given.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available 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.

  2. 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 Δ-winding voltage of 400V in the primary, and a second Δ-winding voltage of 220V, a third Y-winding voltage of 220V, and a fourth Δ-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.

  7. VFT PHASE VOLTAGE MEASUREMENT IN THREE-PHASE ENCLOSED GIS

    邹建华; 岳子丁; 李洋

    2002-01-01

    The measuring of VFT phase voltage in three-phase enclosed GIS is more complex and difficult than in single-phase ones. There are 3 capacitive sensors in the measuring system, the outputs of which are with a linear relation to the three phase voltages. This linear relation is presented with a factorial matrix. Because each capacitive sensor is coupled with the electric field of three phases (A, B, and C), the electric coupling coefficients are introduced. In order to determine the matrix of electric coupling coefficients, the numerical calculation method can be used. From the discussion on two types of three-phase enclosed GIS bus, i.e. standard arrangement and biased arrangement, the dominant electric coupling coefficients are named, which can be simply and approximately calculated by an analytic expression. Finally, as an example, the waveforms of VFT phase voltage generated on a three-phase enclosed GIS bus model are displayed. When a capacitive sensor is located at the 'shortest point' of phase A (or B, or C), the VFT phase voltage VA (or VB, or VC) can almost be measured by that capacitive sensor alone.

  8. 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.

  9. Harmonic three-phase circular inclusions in finite elasticity

    Wang, Xu; Schiavone, Peter

    2015-09-01

    We study the exterior stress field in a three-phase circular inclusion which is bonded to the surrounding matrix through an intermediate interphase layer. All three phases belong to a particular class of compressible hyperelastic materials of harmonic type. We focus on the design of a harmonic elastic inclusion which by definition, does not disturb the sum of the normal stresses in the surrounding matrix. We show that in order to make the coated inclusion harmonic, certain inequalities concerning the material and geometric parameters of the three-phase composite must first be satisfied. The corresponding remote loading parameters can then be uniquely determined while keeping the associated phase angles arbitrary. Our results allow for both uniform and non-uniform remote loading. We show that the stress field inside the inclusion is uniform when the remote loading is uniform.

  10. A Medium-Voltage Motor Drive with a Modular Multilevel PWM Inverter Part I. Experimental Verification by a 400-V, 15-kW Downscaled Model

    Hagiwara, Makoto; Nishimura, Kazutoshi; Akagi, Hirofumi

    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.

  12. Effect and surfactants on three-phase fluidized bed hydrodynamics

    Experiments were conducted to discern the relationship between three-phase fluidized bed hydrodynamics and surfactant solution characteristics. The standard characteristic, equilibrium surface tension, is inadequate. A novel method for surface tension evaluation, a dynamic maximum bubble pressure technique, was found to differentiate the 12 different solutions studied. The surfactant solutions were categorized based upon a combination of the terminal bubble rise velocity reduction, the equilibrium surface tension, and the new bubble tension values. These surfactant solution categories were correlated with experimentally observed three-phase fluidized bed and bubble column hydrodynamic behavior. Specifically, empirical correlations for gas holdup are presented

  13. Approaches to Suppressing Shaft Voltage in Brushless DC Motor Driven by PWM Inverter Based on Ungrounded Common-Mode Equivalent Circuit

    Maetani, Tatsuo; Isomura, Yoshinori; Watanabe, Akihiko; Iimori, Kenichi; Morimoto, Shigeo

    This paper describes an ungrounded common-mode equivalent circuit for a motor driven by a voltage-source PWM inverter. When the capacitance of the rotor was is small, the reversal of the polarities of the common-mode voltage and shaft voltage is observed. In order to model this reversal, a bridge-type equivalent circuit is proposed. On the basis of calculations and experiment, it is found the values and polarity of the shaft voltage can be are accurately determined with the proposed equivalent circuit. 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.

    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 Σ3k 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. Simulation results have been used to verify the overall operation of the proposed multi level voltage source inverter in feeding a R-L load with a stepped sinusoidal wave form

  18. 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.

    2006-10-15

    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.

  4. EMC Increasing of PWM Rectifier in Comparison with Classical Rectifier

    R. Dolecek

    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.

    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.

  7. Peripheral cholangiocarcinoma : three-phase helical CT appearance

    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

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. .

  17. Realise of PWM-generating based on FPGA

    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)

  19. 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.

  20. Three-phase flow of submarine gas hydrate pipe transport

    李立; 徐海良; 杨放琼

    2015-01-01

    In the hydraulic transporting process of cutter-suction mining natural gas hydrate, when the temperature−pressure equilibrium of gas hydrate is broken, gas hydrates dissociate into gas. As a result, solid−liquid two-phase flow (hydrate and water) transforms into gas−solid−liquid three-phase flow (methane, hydrate and water) inside the pipeline. The Euler model and CFD-PBM model were used to simulate gas−solid−liquid three-phase flow. Numerical simulation results show that the gas and solid phase gradually accumulate to the center of the pipe. Flow velocity decreases from center to boundary of the pipe along the radial direction. Comparison of numerical simulation results of two models reveals that the flow state simulated by CFD-PBM model is more uniform than that simulated by Euler model, and the main behavior of the bubble is small bubbles coalescence to large one. Comparison of numerical simulation and experimental investigation shows that the values of flow velocity and gas fraction in CFD-PBM model agree with experimental data better than those in Euler model. The proposed PBM model provides a more accurate and effective way to estimate three-phase flow state of transporting gas hydrate within the submarine pipeline.

  1. Analysis of Capacitive Parasitism in PWM Inverter-Fed Motor

    2001-01-01

    The effects of parasitic capacitance in induction motor system are unnoticed when it is fed from the AC line. but they are obvious when supplied directly from a PWM inverter. Consequently. many parasitic problems occur, such as motor-to-earth leakage current, bearing current, incoming line current distortion and uneven distribution of electrical stresses along the winding. On the ba sis of the uniform transmission line principle, a complete equivalent circuit of the PWM inverter-fed motor system is presented, based on which all the capacitive parasitic problems mentioned above are analyzed and simulated by means of PSPICE. All the results are consistent with the existing ones.

  4. Electrical Characteristics of Dielectric-Barrier Discharges in Atmospheric Pressure Air Using a Power-Frequency Voltage Source

    Dielectric-barrier discharges (DBDs) in atmospheric pressure air have been studied by using a power-frequency voltage source. In this paper the electrical characteristics of DBDs using glass and alumina dielectrics have been investigated experimentally. According to the Lissajous figures of voltage-charges, it is discovered that the discharge power for an alumina dielectric is much higher than that for a glass dielectric at the same applied voltage. Also, the voltage-current curves of the glass and alumina dielectrics confirm the fact that the dielectric barriers behave like semiconducting materials at certain applied voltages.

  5. Current Compensation with Reduced Rating VSC and A ZIG – ZAG Transformer an A Three Phase Four-Wire Distribution System

    P.Narasimhulu

    2014-09-01

    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.

  6. Enhanced control of DFIG-used back-to-back PWM VSC under unbalanced grid voltage conditions

    2007-01-01

    This paper presents a unified positive- and negative-sequence dual-dq dynamic model of wind-turbine driven doublyfed induction generator (DFIG) under unbalanced grid voltage conditions. Strategies for enhanced control and operation of a DFIG-used back-to-back (BTB) PWM voltage source converter (VSC) are proposed. The modified control design for the grid-side converter in the stationary αβ frames diminishes the amplitude of DC-link voltage ripples of twice the grid frequency, and the two proposed control targets for the rotor-side converter are alternatively achieved, which, as a result, improve the fault-ride through (FRT) capability of the DFIG based wind power generation systems during unbalanced network supply. A complete unbalanced control scheme with both grid- and rotor-side converters included is designed. Finally, simulation was carried out on a 1.5 MW wind-turbine driven DFIG system and the validity of the developed unified model and the feasibility of the proposed control strategies are all confirmed by the simulated results.

  7. Contrast enhancement patterns of hepatic masses using three phase spiral

    To compare the contrast enhancement patterns of hepatocellular carcinomas(HCCs), hemangiomas, and metastases on three-phase images with spiral CT for differential diagnosis. Three-phase spiral CT scan was performed in 73 patients with hepatic masses. CT scanning was performed with a table speed of 10 mm/sec, section thickness of 10 mm, and a reconstruction interval of 5 mm. 100-150mL of contrast medium was injected intravenously with an automatic injector at a rate of 2-3 mL/sec. CT scans were obtained at 30, 70 and 180 seconds after the start of contrast material injection. The enhancement patterns of 136 lesions in 53 patients with HCCs were as follows : 47 lesions(35%) were totally high and 55(40%) were mixed in the early phase deparlesions(22%) were mixed and 66(49%) were totally low in the portal phase ; and 105 lesions(78%) were totally low in the delayed phase. In hemangiomas of 23 lesions in 15 patients, 7 lesions(30%) were peripherally high and 11(48%) were totally low in the arterial phase ; 4 lesion(17%) were totally high and 12(53%) were peripherally high in the portal phase ; 10 lesions (42%) were totally high and 4(18%) were peripherally high in the delayed phase. In metastatic liver malignancies of 42 lesions in 5 patients, 13 lesions(31%) were peripherally high and 22(52%) were totally low in the arterial phase ; 32 lesions(77%) were totally low in the portal phase, and 35(83%) were totally low in the delayed phase. Three-phase spiral CT scanning is a useful diagnostic method in the differential diagnosis of hepatic masses including HCCs, hemangiomas, and hepatic metastases

    Cheng-Shan Wang

    2015-06-01

    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.

    Mary Kaye; Chris Diduch; Qing-rong ZENG; Idris Gadoura; Liu-chen ZHANG

    2011-01-01

    Voltage space vector pulse-width modulation(SVPWM) has been widely applied to control current in threephase vohage source inverters (VSI).However,as a voltage type modulator,SVPWM has certain drawbacks compared with current type modulators for grid-connected applications.For a grid-connected VSI,the performance of existing current controllers based on SVPWM is compromised by grid harmonics,control delay and system nonlinearities such as switching dead time.Moreover,unlike current type PWM,SVPWM does not inherently have over-current protection.A novel SVPWM-based current controller is proposed for three-phase grid-connected VSIs for small wind turbine applications.To overcome the drawbacks of SVPWM,a grid harmonic compensation method is proposed along with compensation for control delays.Both simulation and experimental results have established excellent steady-state response and fast dynamic response of the current controller.In addition,the DSP-based control system has both improved real-time control performance and fast response for over-current protection.

    This paper presents a three-phase electric drive with a modified electronic smoothing inductor (MESI) having reduced size of passive components. The classical electronic smoothing inductor (ESI) is able to control a diode bridge output current and also reduce not only mains current harmonics but...... series with DC-link capacitor. This increases power factor (PF) and reduces the total harmonic distortions (THDs) in current at mains.

    Wood, M. E.

    1977-01-01

    An investigation into the characteristics of three phase, 400 Hz, induction motors of the general type used on aircraft and spacecraft is summarized. Results of laboratory tests are presented and compared with results from a computer program. Representative motors were both tested and simulated under nominal conditions as well as off nominal conditions of temperature, frequency, voltage magnitude, and voltage balance. Good correlation was achieved between simulated and laboratory results. The primary purpose of the program was to verify the simulation accuracy of the computer program, which in turn will be used as an analytical tool to support the shuttle orbiter.

    Dubovsky, J.; Dobrucly, B; Tabacek, R.; Havrila, R. [Department of Electric Traction and Energetics Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Zilina (Slovakia)

    1997-12-31

    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.

  15. A Single Phase to Three Phase PFC Half-Bridge Converter Using BLDC Drive with SPWM Technique.

    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.

  16. Investigation of the behavior of a three phase grid-connected photovoltaic system to control active and reactive power

    Tsengenes, Georgios; Adamidis, Georgios [Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering, Democritus University of Thrace, University Campus Kimmeria, 67100 Xanthi (Greece)

    2011-01-15

    In this paper, a photovoltaic (PV) system, with maximum power point tracking (MPPT), connected to a three phase grid is presented. 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)

    Grigore, V. [Electronics and Telecommunications Faculty `Politebuica` University Bucharest (Romania); Kyyrae, J. [Helsinki University of Technology, Otaniemi (Finland): Institute of Intelligent Power Electronics

    1997-12-31

    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.

    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.

  5. Wind Farm Stabilization by using DFIG with Current Controlled Voltage Source Converters Taking Grid Codes into Consideration

    Okedu, Kenneth Eloghene; Muyeen, S. M.; Takahashi, Rion; Tamura, Junji

    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.

  7. Three-phase scintigraphy in the Sudeck syndrome

    Koppers, B.

    1982-11-01

    37 patients with clinically and radiologically proved reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome were scintigraphied by sup(99)mTc-MDP (three-phase scintigraphy). In 87% of the examinations (all three-phases) an increased tracer accumulation in the region of the affected limb could be seen scintigraphically. The majority of the positive results (92% resp. 87%) were found in the intervall phase (phase II) and the late phase (phase III) of the scintigraphic examinations. - We recommend a staging of the increase of the tracer accumulation when examing the reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome. This staging doesn't significantly correlate with the familiar clinical and radiological stagings. However it may be useful when assessing the course of the syndrome. - Increased tracer accumulations could be observed in the case of clinically, radiologically and scintigraphically manifest reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome in the region of the foot, frequently in the ipsilateral knee region, rarely in the ipsilateral hip joint region, although clinically the syndrome could not be observed in these regions.

  8. A fuzzy controlled three-phase centrifuge for waste separation

    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

  9. Boosted PWM open loop control of hydraulic proportional valves

    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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Three-phase radionuclide bone imaging in sports medicine

    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

  14. Transient three-phase three-component flow. Pt. 3

    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.)

  15. Mucormycosis and bone scintillography of three phases. Case description

    The purpose of presenting this work, besides the interest that shows the mucormycosis pathology not so frequent, it is to carry out a clinical correlation photographic with the imagenology, particularly with the bone scintillography. In the Nuclear Medicine Service it is carried out bone scintillography of three phases previous endovenous administration of 30 mCi (1110 MBq) of 99m Tc-MDP. The images are obtained with a gamma camera model Elscint APEX SPX, first each 2 seconds during the first minute, then early image to the 5 minutes and finally the late ones to the 3 hs. The bone scintillography in the phases 2 and 3 detects bigger radioactive density in left hemi side, with increment of the osteoblast activity mainly in the medial border and the floor of the orbit, in the malar bone and a little more tenuous in the superior maxillary.

    Abouelmahjoub Y.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The problem of controlling three-phase series active power filter (TPSAPF is addressed in this paper in presence of the perturbations in the voltages of the electrical supply network. The control objective of the TPSAPF is twofold: (i compensation of all voltage perturbations (voltage harmonics, voltage unbalance and voltage sags, (ii regulation of the DC bus voltage of the inverter. 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.

  17. Three Phase High Power Quality Two- Stage Boost Rectifier

    P.NAMMALVAR

    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.

  18. Three-Phase Coexistence in Colloidal Rod-Plate Mixtures.

    Woolston, Phillip; van Duijneveldt, Jeroen S

    2015-09-01

    Aqueous suspensions of clay particles, such as montmorillonite (MMT) platelets and sepiolite (Sep) rods, tend to form gels at concentrations around 1 vol %. For Sep rods, adsorbing sodium polyacrylate to the surface allows for an isotropic-nematic phase separation to be seen instead. Here, MMT is added to such Sep suspensions, resulting in a complex phase behavior. Across a range of clay concentrations, separation into three phases is observed: a lower, nematic phase dominated by Sep rods, a MMT-rich middle layer, which is weakly birefringent and probably a gel, and a dilute top phase. Analysis of phase volumes suggests that the middle layer may contain as much as 6 vol % MMT. PMID:26262770

  19. 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 ...

  20. Three Phase Bone Scintigraphy in Active and Inactive Osteomyelitis

    To Appreciate the value of bone scintigraphy in determination of the bony infection, we performed three phase bone scintigraphy in 34 cases of osteomyelitis of extremities prospectively. They were clinically inactive in 11 and active in 23 cases. We confirmed the active osteomyelitis by operation or aspiration within one week after scintigraphy. Perfusion, blood pool and delayed images were analyzed respectively and compared with the plain roentgenograms. All 23 active lesions showed diffusely increased perfusion in affected limbs. The areas of the increased activities on blood pool images were larger than or similar to those on delayed images in 17 cases (73.9%) with active osteomyelitis and smaller in 6 cases (26.1%). 5 of the latter 6 cases showed definite soft tissue activities on blood pool images. In inactive cases bone scintigrams were completely normal in 4 cases. Two of those were normal on plain films and remaining two showed mild focal bony sclerosis. Among 7 inactive lesions, perfusion was normal in 2 cases, diffusely increased in 4 cases and diffusely decreased in 1 case. 6 of these 7 cases showed increased activities both on blood pool and delayed images and the areas of increased activities on blood pool images didn't exceed those on delayed images. Bony sclerosis was noted on plain films in those 7 inactive lesions and the extent of the sclerosis correlated well to delayed images. Large blood pool activity was characteristics of active osteomyelitis. Normal three phase bone scintigram may indicate the time to terminate the treatment, but increased activity on perfusion and blood pool scans is not absolute indication of active lesion if the extent of the lesion on the blood pool image is smaller than that on delayed image and if no definite soft tissue activity is noted on perfusion and blood pool images in clinically inactive patient.

  1. Cellular automata approach to three-phase traffic theory

    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

  3. Possibilities by using a self-commutated voltage source inverter connected to a weak grid in wind parks

    Svensson, Jan [Chalmers Univ. of Technology, Goeteborg (Sweden). Dept. of Electric Power Engineering

    1996-12-01

    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

    2014-01-01

    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 virtual inductance plays a critical role in mitigating the phase lag caused by the time delay in a...... digital control system. The instability induced by the negative virtual resistance, which is commonly experienced in the feedback-type active damping, can thus be avoided.

  6. Testing and optimization of high-voltage source Cockcroft-Walton generator of EBM for latex vulcanization

    The testing and optimization of high-voltage source Cockcroft-Walton generator for latex vulcanization has been done. The optimization began with oscillator of Cockcroft-Walton generator, in the initial testing (using isolation of N2 + CO2 gas with pressure of 4 bar to isolate the Cockcroft-Walton circuit) capable of generating voltages up to 167 kV. In the initial testing, the primary coil of high-frequency transformator was damaged and repairment has been done. After the repairment of high-frequency transformator, continued with the testing using isolation of N2 + CO2 gas, the oscillator of Cockcroft-Walton generator and the high-voltage multiplier are work properly capable of generating voltages up to 200 kV. Next activity is to replace one of the diode circuit which is broken because of discharge and replace the high-frequency transformator with the newer design, the new high-frequency transformator using a whole of ferrite core, previously using ferri t core compiled from bars of inhomogeneous ferrite. Next activity is reliability testing of high-voltage source (using SF6 gas) by varying the output frequency of power oscillator which is done by varying the frequency, the maximum frequency of 24 kHz generating voltages 200 kV, beam current 50 µA and outgassing occurred in the vacuum system. After the repairment on the vacuum system, the next activity is the test to produce beam current, and obtained output voltage of 203 kV and beam current of 550 µA. (author)

  7. Dimensional similitude and the hydrodynamics of three- phase fluidized beds

    Safoniuk, Michael

    It is proposed that scaling of three-phase fluidized bed hydrodynamics can be carried out based on geometric similarity and matching of a set of five dimensionless groups: (i)the M-group, M = g.Δρ.μ L4/(ρL2.σ 3); (ii)an Eötvös number, Eo = g.Δρ.d p2/σ (iii)the liquid Reynolds number, Re L = ρL.dp.UL/μ L; (iv)a density ratio, βd = ρp/ρ L; and (v)a superficial velocity ratio, βu = U g/UL. These were varied in an experimental study where four dimensionless hydrodynamic parameters were measured: (i)gas hold-up, ɛ g; (ii)bed expansion ratio, βbe (iii)the ratio of mean bubble diameter to particle diameter, db/dp ; and (iv)the ratio of mean bubble rise velocity to gas superficial velocity, Ub/Ug. This approach was validated experimentally by matching the dimensionless operating conditions from a kerosene-nitrogen-ceramic three-phase system with those in an aqueous magnesium sulphate solution-air-aluminum particle fluidized bed. There was good agreement between the gas hold-ups and bed expansion ratios in the two systems. A pilot-plant scale cold-flow co-current upwards-flowing three-phase fluidized bed column of inside diameter 292 mm was built and operated using three different liquids (tap water, an aqueous 44 mass % glycerol solution, and an aqueous 60 mass % glycerol solution), air, and cylindrical aluminum particles of diameter 4 mm and length 10 mm. The fluids and solids were carefully selected to result in dimensionless group values in the range of those of an industrial hydroprocessor. Specially built conductivity probes and pressure transducers were used to measure the hydrodynamic properties for different gas and liquid superficial velocities. Special attention was required to provide for drift and calibration when recording and analyzing data from the conductivity probes. Gas hold-ups were in the range of 5 to 20% by volume and were correlated as a function of liquid-phase Reynolds number and superficial velocity ratio. The gas hold-ups were a

  8. Apparent permeability of electrical steel under PWM magnetisation

    In recent years much attention has been paid to material performance under pulse width modulation (PWM) excitation conditions, which is of increasing importance to motor applications particularly in energy efficient variable speed drive systems. It is well known that in general, losses increase significantly with reducing modulation index, the increase depending on parameters such as silicon contents, thickness and grain size. The effect of the PWM waveform on permeability has attracted little attention until now. So in this paper its influence on the permeability of electrical steel is analysed and characterised. A prediction approach based on the permeability under sine wave excitation and total harmonic distortion is introduced which results in errors below 10% for non-electrical steel at 1.5 T

  18. Carrier Based Pulse Width Modulation Control of a Non-Square Direct Matrix Converter with Seven-phase Input and Three-phase Output

    Sk Moin Ahmed

    2013-07-01

    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 This paper presents an efficient and reliable Genetic Algorithm-based solution for Specific Harmonic Elimination (SHE switching pattern. This method eliminates considerable amount of lower order line voltage harmonics in Pulse Width Modulation (PWM inverter. The determination of pulse pattern for the elimination of some lower order harmonics of a PWM inverter necessitates solving a system of nonlinear transcendental equations. Genetic Algorithm is used to solve nonlinear transcendental equations for PWM-SHE. In this proposed method, harmonics up to 17th are eliminated using Genetic Algorithm without using Dual transformer. Simulations using Matlab 7.0 and PSIM 6.1 are carried out so as to validate the solution.

  20. Dynamics of IGBT based PWM Converter A Case Study

    Vijay Shukla

    2012-04-01

    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.

    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...

  12. Prediction of power losses in silicon iron sheets under PWM voltage supply

    The behavior of iron losses in silicon iron steels submitted to a PWM voltage is studied. The influence of modulation parameters (the depth of modulation and the number of eliminated harmonics) is clarified. In particular, the idea of an equivalent alternating pulse voltage that gives the same iron losses as the PWM voltage is established. An estimation formula for iron losses under the PWM voltage is developed based on the loss separation model and the voltage form factor. ((orig.))

  13. Deterministic approach to microscopic three-phase traffic theory

    Kerner, B S; Kerner, Boris S.; Klenov, Sergey L.

    2005-01-01

    A deterministic approach to three-phase traffic theory is presented. Two different deterministic microscopic traffic flow models are introduced. In an acceleration time delay model (ATD-model), different time delays in driver acceleration associated with driver behavior in various local driving situations are explicitly incorporated into the model. Vehicle acceleration depends on local traffic situation, i.e., whether a driver is within the free flow, or synchronized flow, or else wide moving jam traffic phase. In a speed adaptation model (SA-model), driver time delays are simulated as a model effect: Rather than driver acceleration, vehicle speed adaptation occurs with different time delays depending on one of the three traffic phases in which the vehicle is in. It is found that the ATD- and SA-models show spatiotemporal congested traffic patterns that are adequate with empirical results. It is shown that in accordance with empirical results in the ATD- and SA-models the onset of congestion in free flow at a...

    McCormick, John A.; Valenzuela, Javier A.

    1991-07-01

    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.

    2010-11-01

    This study reports the experimental observation and analysis of self-biased magnetoelectric (ME) effect in three-phase laminates. The 2-2 L-T mode laminates were fabricated by attaching nickel (Ni) plates and ME particulate composite plates having 3-0 connectivity with 0.948Na0.5K0.5NbO3-0.052LiSbO3 (NKNLS) matrix and Ni0.8Zn0.2Fe2O4 (NZF) dispersant. The presence of two types of ferromagnetic materials, Ni and NZF, results in built-in magnetic bias due to difference in their magnetic susceptibilities and coercivity. This built-in bias (Hbias) provides finite ME effect at zero applied magnetic dc field. The ME response of bending mode trilayer laminate NKNLS-NZF/Ni/NKNLS-NZF in off-resonance and on-resonance conditions was shown to be mathematical combination of the trilayers with configuration NKNLS-NZF/Ni/NKNLS-NZF and NKNLS/Ni/NKNLS representing contributions from magnetic interaction and bending strain.

    2004-01-01

    C. Operation of a PWM Cycloconverter The concepts in Section Ⅱ-B, present a progression of solutions to known design difficulties. To incorporate these benefits and eliminate the redundant conversion step shown in Fig. 6, we propose the PWM cycloconverter shown in Fig. 7. It will be shown in Section Ⅲ. that the conventional PWM inverter can be unified through a multiple-carrier PWM framework. The control concept introduced is extended to demonstrate that multiple-carrier PWM methods lead to HF link inverters that are nearly as simple to control as conventional PWM inverters.

  18. Effects of 60Co γ-rays on PWM and LPS induced lymphocytes

    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 γ-rays. When PWM-induced cells and LPS-induced cells were incubated together, with one kind of cells exposed to 60Co γ-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 γ-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

  2. 三相ZVS逆变器磁链轨迹%Locus of Flux Linkage for Three-Phase ZVS Inverter

    陈国呈; 许春雨; 孙承波; 屈克庆; Taniguchi Katsunori

    2005-01-01

    ZVS(zero voltage switching) PWM(pulse width modulation) inverters have attracted much attention recently. The basic idea is to use ZVS circuit as the main circuit of inverter resonance at the beginning of every carrier period so that each power device can commutate when voltage of the main circuit' s DC bus line is zero. To ensure the resonant circuit to operate properly, sawtooth with alternate slope (positive or negative) is used as carrier. But the time of zero voltage vectors with such PWM pattern is greatly different from traditional hard-switching PWM pattern. This paper discusses the locus of flux linkage under soft-switching PWM pattern by using space voltage vector. It is pointed out that, under the hard-switching PWM pattern, speed of flux linkage is adjusted by zero space voltage vector. When soft-switching PWM pattern is used, however, effective time of space voltage vector varies considerably, sometimes even without zero space voltage vector. Therefore non-zero space voltage vector has been used to make the speed of flux linkage locus equal to that of hard-switching PWM pattern. The cause of current distortion in soft-switching PWM inverters is also discussed. Based on the flux linkage locus circle, corresponding compensation methods are proposed. Experimental results show that the described method can effectively improve output current waveform of inverter.

The bubble-bubble and particle-particle collisions are included the model. The model predictions are compared with the experimental data and good agreement was found An experimental setup for studying two-dimensional bubble columns was developed.

  5. Three Phase Upward Flow in a Vertical Pipe

    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

    2012-05-01

    The Pacific Islands Project (PIP), funded by AusAid and managed by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS), has progressed through three phases from 1995 to 2010. During this time, it has sent over 520 teams to 11 Pacific Island Countries, providing over 60,000 consultations and some 16,000 procedures. In addition to this delivery of specialist medical and surgical services that were not previously available in-country, the project has contributed as a partner in capacity building with the Fiji School of Medicine and Ministries of Health of the individual nations. By 2011, Fiji School of Medicine, which began postgraduate specialist training in 1998, had awarded 51 doctors a diploma in surgery (1 year), 20 of whom had completed their Masters in Medicine (4 years). PIP was independently evaluated on completion of every phase, including the bridging Phase III (2006-2010). The project delivered on its design, to deliver services, and also helped build capacity. The relationship established with the RACS throughout the project allowed Pacific Island graduates to access the Rowan Nicks scholarship, and the majority of MMed graduates received International Travel Grants to attend the Annual Scientific Meeting. PIP has been a highly successful partnership in delivering and building specialist medical services. Although AusAid contributed some $20 million over 16 years, the value added from pro bono contributions by Specialist Teams, Specialty Coordinators and the Project Directors amounted to an equivalent amount. With the emergence of Pacific Island-trained specialists, PIP is ready to move into a new phase where the agendas are set, monitored and managed within the Pacific, and RACS fulfils the role of a service provider. A critical mass of Pacific Island surgeons has been trained, so that sub-specialization will be an option for the general surgeons of the larger island nations. PMID:22507204

    针对传统的基于最优消谐波理论的逆变器,应用了一种全新的神经网络控制器.当系统工作时,由在线神经网络实时调节逆变器输出电压的大小;同时各功率管的开关角由另一个神经网络通过对最优PWM最优开关角的拟合,直接计算出来.整个控制系统具有结构简单、反应灵敏、调压精确、输出电能质量高且全数字化的特点.%A novel concept of neural network based control in pulse-width modulation (PWM) voltage source inverters is presented. On the one hand, the optimal switching angles are obtained in real time by the neural network based controller; on the other hand, the output voltage is adjusted to fit the expected value by neural network when input voltage or loads change. The structure of neural network is simple and easy to be realized by DSP hardware system. No large memory used for the existing optimal PWM schemes is required in the system. Theoretical analysis of the proposed so-called sparse neural network is provided, and the stability of the system is proved. Under the control of neural network the error of output voltage descends sharply, and the system outputs ac voltage with high precision.

  9. Design of a Four-Branch LCL-Type Grid-Connecting Interface for a Three-Phase, Four-Leg Active Power Filter

    Wu Cao

    2015-02-01

    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.

  10. Measurement of Parasitic Inductances in the Bus-Bar Assembly of a High Power Voltage Source Converter

    Datta, Aniket; Narayanan, G.

    2016-05-01

    Insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) based voltage source converters use copper plates with insulating sheets in between them (sandwich bus-bar arrangement) for connecting the different device terminals in the power circuit. In such converters, the parasitic inductances in the power circuit are crucial as they cause overvoltage spikes across the device. Also, the parasitics affect the current sharing between IGBTs when they are connected in parallel in high power converters. The conduction path through plates and fasteners in the bus-bar assembly is three-dimensional and quite complex, making analytical evaluation of the stray inductance quite challenging. The first objective here is to present a simple experimental setup and experimental procedure, which are convenient for power electronic engineers, to measure the bus-bar inductance. The next objective is to carry out experimental studies on the inductances offered by different components and sub-assemblies in a bus-bar assembly. This includes evaluation of inductances of the different conduction paths in typical bus-bar plates. The third objective is to experimentally evaluate the parasitic inductances in the bus-bar assembly of a commercial 250 kVA high power converter. Each leg of this converter consists of two 300 A/1200 V IGBTs connected in parallel. The effective inductance seen by the individual device modules are determined experimentally.

  11. Control of grid integrated voltage source converters under unbalanced conditions: development of an on-line frequency-adaptive virtual flux-based approach

    Suul, Jon Are

    2012-03-15

    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

    The relationship between lymphocytes induced by PWM (pokeweed mitogen) and LPS (lipopolysaccharide) was investigated by means of 3H-TdR incorporation. The study showed that, in vitro, PWM-induced cells were able to promote the stimulating effect of LPS to B lymphocytes. The stimulating effect of PWM-induced cells was obviously weakened after PWM cells being irradiated with γ-rays. When PWM-induced cells and LPS-induced cells were incubated together, with one kind of cells exposed to 60Co γ-ray, 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, while treated with 60Co γ-rays, the incorporation value in LPS-induced cells approached normal level, meanwhile, the incorporation value in PEM-induced cells reduced significantly and the stimulating effect of PWM-induced cells on LPS-induced cells became much weaker. The facts described above demonstrated that PWM-induced cells have the function of T-helper cells and play more important role in the synergy than LPS-induced cells

  20. PWM ZCS DC Motor Drive and DC Power Supply

    Bardia Montazeri

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Following the extension and increase in capacity of power electronic elements, many convertors with special applications have been designed. Convertors such as rectifiers, AC and DC power supplies, AC and DC drivers and so on. At present, optimization of these convertors, decreasing loss and bringing down the electromagnetic interference are desired. In this paper, a DC to DC convertor for controlling the speed  of DC motor is designed and  one prototype is presented in which switching losses is close to zero and it has a very low electromagnetic interference. In this convertor, the switches  turn on and turn off approximately with zero current. The speed of motor is controlled by PWM.  This plan includes advantages of  PWM and resonant convertors.The disadvantages, such as ;  high switching losses and changing switching  frequency  for controlling output were removed. As switching frequency has a direct relation with switching losses, when losses decreased, it is possible to increase the frequency, then volume and weight of passive filter elements can be decreased. Besides, by decreasing the losses ,  the need of  heatsink , which is  the heavy and voluminous elements of convertors, can be removed.

  1. An Improved Switching Period Optimization Space Vector PWM Strategy

    Guoqiang Chen

    2014-01-01

    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.

  2. Research on a New Control Strategy of Three Phase Inverter for Unbalanced Loads

    Liu, Chunxi; Weiming Ma; Hu, Wenhua

    2010-01-01

    One of the very important functions of three-phase inverter is to maintain the symmetric three-phase output voltage when the three-phase loads are unbalanced. Although the traditional symmetrical component decomposing and superimpose theory can keep the voltage balance through compensating the positive-, negative- and zero-sequence components of the output voltage of inverter, however, this method is time-consuming and not suitable for control. Aiming at high power medium frequency inverter s...

  17. A new PWM based control method for forced commutated cycloconverters

    Highlights: ► A new control method is proposed for three-phase to single-phase cycloconverters from balanced and unbalanced input voltages. ► The proposed method has no limitation on frequency conversion and is independent of the load. ► In proposed method, the low order harmonics are not generated in the input and output quantities. ► The proposed method can be easily extended to three-phase to n-phase cycloconverters. ► 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.

  20. Design and implementation of PV-based three-phase four-wire series hybrid active power filter for power quality improvement

    M Vijayakumar; S Vijayan

    2014-08-01

    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 DC–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 DC–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.

  1. Stator insulation systems for medium voltage PWM drives fed motors

    Gao, G.; Chen, W. [TECO-Westinghouse Motor Co., Round Rock, TX (United States)

    2005-07-01

    Adjustable speed drives (ASD) are commonly used in power electronics and control systems. It is estimated that more than 15 per cent of medium voltage motors are currently fed by such drives worldwide. A research project was conducted to examine the influence of medium voltage pulse width modulated (PWM) ASD on motor stator insulation systems. The findings, based on accelerated laboratory tests, have helped designers to improve the capabilities of the insulation system used for ASD-fed motors. Repetitive, high magnitude voltage spikes with fast rise time create significant stress on insulation systems. Gradual deterioration and premature failure of the motor insulation can result from surge voltages which generate surface discharges between phase windings/end windings, or partial discharges between stator turns. However, there is no industrial standard to evaluate motor insulation life under ASD-cable-motor conditions. Several material manufacturers have developed their own version of corona resistant material. However, the insulation life of ASD-fed motors does not depend solely on the raw materials. Rather, it depends on the complete insulation system, including the stator manufacturing process. In order to address this problem, TECO-Westinghouse Motor Company has developed special design criteria and manufacturing practices in order to reduce winding insulation temperature and to compensate for the additional heat generated by high frequency contents in the PWM voltage waveform. A patent pending new cooling system should reduce winding temperature by 15 to 20 degrees C. This paper presented design considerations for turn insulation, groundwall insulation, and a voltage stress grading system. A new thermal class H insulation system was also described. 6 refs., 2 tabs., 5 figs.

  2. PWM Switching Frequency Effects on Eddy Current Sensors for Magnetically Suspended Flywheel Systems

    Jansen, Ralph; Lebron, Ramon; Dever, Timothy P.; Birchenough, Arthur G.

    2003-01-01

    A flywheel magnetic bearing (MB) pulse width modulated power amplifier (PWM) configuration is selected to minimize noise generated by the PWMs in the flywheel position sensor system. Two types of noise are addressed: beat frequency noise caused by variations in PWM switching frequencies, and demodulation noise caused by demodulation of high order harmonics of the switching voltage into the MB control band. Beat frequency noise is eliminated by synchronizing the PWM switch frequencies, and demodulation noise is minimized by selection of a switching frequency which does not have harmonics at the carrier frequency of the sensor. The recommended MB PWM system has five synchronized PWMs switching at a non-integer harmonic of the sensor carrier.

The duty ratio range of ABS outlet valve in PWM control is determined and an experimental model of pressure reduction velocity (PRV) of wheel cylinder using PWM control is established. By comparison and test of the experimental model and realization of controlling the duty ratio of ABS outlet valves, the fine regulation of wheel cylinder PRV is realized in the working of ABS/ASR braking regulation, which is important and valuable to the improvement of the ABS/ASR controlling effect.

  4. A digital input class-D audio amplifier with sixth-order PWM

    A digital input class-D audio amplifier with a sixth-order pulse-width modulation (PWM) modulator is presented. This modulator moves the PWM generator into the closed sigma—delta modulator loop. The noise and distortions generated at the PWM generator module are suppressed by the high gain of the forward loop of the sigma—delta modulator. Therefore, at the output of the modulator, a very clean PWM signal is acquired for driving the power stage of the class-D amplifier. A sixth-order modulator is designed to balance the performance and the system clock speed. Fabricated in standard 0.18 μm CMOS technology, this class-D amplifier achieves 110 dB dynamic range, 100 dB signal-to-noise rate, and 0.0056% total harmonic distortion plus noise.

  9. 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.

  12. The analysis of magnesium oxide hydration in three-phase reaction system

    In order to investigate the magnesium oxide hydration process in gas–liquid–solid (three-phase) reaction system, magnesium hydroxide was prepared by magnesium oxide hydration in liquid–solid (two-phase) and three-phase reaction systems. A semi-empirical model and the classical shrinking core model were used to fit the experimental data. The fitting result shows that both models describe well the hydration process of three-phase system, while only the semi-empirical model right for the hydration process of two-phase system.

The XRD and SEM show hydration process in the two-phase system follows common dissolution/precipitation mechanism. While in the three-phase system, the hydration process undergo MgO dissolution, Mg(OH)2 precipitation, Mg(OH)2 peeling off from MgO particle and leaving behind fresh MgO surface. - Graphical abstract: There was existence of a peeling-off process in the gas–liquid–solid (three-phase) MgO hydration system. - Highlights: • Magnesium oxide hydration in gas–liquid–solid system was investigated. • The experimental data in three-phase system could be fitted well by two models. • The morphology analysis suggested that there was existence of a peel-off process

    Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) strategies employing water-alternate-gas (WAG) injections may improve oil mobility and production recovery. WAG injections for EOR create regions in the reservoir with simultaneous flow of oil, water and air dominated by capillary and gravity forces. As a result of the dynamics in the transition zones, the invading fluid may snap off compartments of the displaced fluid which could then be trapped in the pore space, contributing to the hysteresis of the three-phase capillary pressure curves. Three-phase capillary pressure curves are needed to model the three-phase transition zone movements in the reservoir. In reservoir simulation models, the common practice has been to implement three-phase capillary pressure curves based on two-phase gas-oil and oil-water capillary pressure data. However, experimental and modelling studies of three-phase fluid distributions at the pore scale have shown that this procedure is not always valid; three-phase capillary pressure curves exhibit hysteresis and depend on the saturation history of the three phases which cannot be derived from two-phase capillary pressure curves. We have developed three-phase experiments that provide capillary pressures and 3D-image data of fluid distributions in the entire saturation space of oil, water and air in water-wet porous glass-bead columns; a time-consuming and technically challenging exercise. The 3D data with a resolution of 6.38 μm were derived from high-resolution synchrotron x-ray computed micro-tomography (CMT), collected at the GSECARS beam line 13-BM-D at the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory. In particular, we discuss how three-phase pore-scale mechanisms, such as oil layer existence and multiple displacement events, affect the mobility and trapping of oil in the porous medium. We also show that wettability-alterations of the porous medium in contact with the three-phase fluid system and exposure to x-rays can be avoided by using iodine

    配电网三相对地参数不平衡会产生三相不平衡电压,一般采用投切电容器或电抗器补偿三相不平衡参数,抑制不平衡电压,但该方法补偿的精度和速度有限,难以彻底而迅速地实现三相不平衡过电压抑制。因此,在前期发明的柔性接地技术(专利201110006701.2)基础上,提出配电网三相不平衡过电压抑制新方法。通过PWM有源逆变向配电网注入零序电流补偿三相对地不平衡电流,实现对零序电压的控制,从而抑制三相不平衡过电压。仿真分析结果表明,所提方法可有效抑制三相不平衡过电压,能够将中性点位移电压限制为零。%Unbalanced three-phase parameters to ground can result in the three-phase unbalanced voltage in distribution networks. Generally switched capacitors and reactors are applied in the compensation of three-phase unbalanced parameters to limit the unbalanced voltage. Whereas, the compensation method has limited precision and speed, it is difficult to satisfy the requirement of the three-phase unbalanced voltage suppressing thoroughly and rapidly. In order to improve it, a new method based on the invention patent of flexible grounding technique (Patent number 201110006701.2) was presented in this paper. The three-phase unbalanced current to ground was compensated by the injecting zero sequence current to distribution network through pulse width modulation (PWM) inverter. The zero sequence voltage was controlled and the three-phase unbalanced overvoltage was thus suppressed. Simulation results showed that the proposed method limited the unbalanced overvoltage effectively, and the neutral displacement voltage could be limited to zero.

  15. A new method for the experimental determination of three-phase relative permeabilities

    Petroleum reservoirs under primary, secondary or tertiary recovery processes usually experience simultaneous flow of three fluids phases (oil, water and gas). Reports on some mathematical models for calculating three-phase relative permeability are available in the Literature. Nevertheless, many of these models were designed based on certain experimental conditions and reservoir rocks and fluids. Therefore, special care has to be taken when applying them to specific reservoirs. At the laboratory level, three-phase relative permeability can be calculated using experimental unsteady-state or steady state methodologies. This paper proposes an unsteady-state methodology to evaluate three-phase relative permeability using the equipment available at the petrophysical analysis Laboratory of the Instituto Colombiano del Petroleo (ICP) of Ecopetrol S.A. Improvements to the equipment were effected in order to achieve accuracy in the unsteady-state measurement of three-phase relative permeability. The target of improvements was directed toward to the attainment of two objectives:1) the modification of the equipment to obtain more reliable experimental data and 2) the appropriate interpretation of the data obtained. Special attention was given to the differential pressure and uncertainty measurement in the determination of fluid saturation in the rock samples. Three experiments for three-phase relative permeability were conducted using a sample A and reservoir rock from the Colombian Foothills. Fluid tests included the utilization of synthetic brine, mineral oil, reservoir crude oil and nitrogen. Two runs were conducted at the laboratory conditions while one run was conducted at reservoir conditions. Experimental results of these tests were compared using 16 mathematical models of three-phase relative permeability. For the three-phase relative permeability to oil, the best correlations between experimental data and tests using Blunt, Hustad Hasen, and Baker's models were

  17. Investigation of the effects of PWM parameters on ionic polymer metal composite actuators

    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 6–8 Volts and by selecting a frequency between 400–1000 Hz.

  19. Compositional modeling of three-phase flow with gravity using higher-order finite element methods

    Moortgat, Joachim

    2011-05-11

    A wide range of applications in subsurface flow involve water, a nonaqueous phase liquid (NAPL) or oil, and a gas phase, such as air or CO2. The numerical simulation of such processes is computationally challenging and requires accurate compositional modeling of three-phase flow in porous media. In this work, we simulate for the first time three-phase compositional flow using higher-order finite element methods. Gravity poses complications in modeling multiphase processes because it drives countercurrent flow among phases. To resolve this issue, we propose a new method for the upwinding of three-phase mobilities. Numerical examples, related to enhanced oil recovery and carbon sequestration, are presented to illustrate the capabilities of the proposed algorithm. We pay special attention to challenges associated with gravitational instabilities and take into account compressibility and various phase behavior effects, including swelling, viscosity changes, and vaporization. We find that the proposed higher-order method can capture sharp solution discontinuities, yielding accurate predictions of phase boundaries arising in computational three-phase flow. This work sets the stage for a broad extension of the higher-order methods for numerical simulation of three-phase flow for complex geometries and processes.

  2. Phase field modeling and simulation of three-phase flow on solid surfaces

    Zhang, Qian; Wang, Xiao-Ping

    2016-08-01

    Phase field models are widely used to describe the two-phase system. The evolution of the phase field variables is usually driven by the gradient flow of a total free energy functional. The generalization of the approach to an N phase (N ≥ 3) system requires some extra consistency conditions on the free energy functional in order for the model to give physically relevant results. A projection approach is proposed for the derivation of a consistent free energy functional for the three-phase Cahn-Hilliard equations. The system is then coupled with the Navier-Stokes equations to describe the three-phase flow on solid surfaces with moving contact line. An energy stable scheme is developed for the three-phase flow system. The discrete energy law of the numerical scheme is proved which ensures the stability of the scheme. We also show some numerical results for the dynamics of triple junctions and four phase contact lines.

    2007-04-01

    This paper presents results from the implementation and testing of a PC based monitoring and fault identification scheme for a three-phase induction motor using artificial neural networks (ANNs). To accomplish the task, a hardware system is designed and built to acquire three-phase voltages and currents from a 1/3 HP squirrel-cage, three-phase induction motor. A software program is written to read the voltages and currents, which are first used to train a feed-forward neural network structure using the JavaNNS program. The trained network is placed in a LabVIEW based program formula node that monitors the voltages and currents online and displays the fault conditions and turns the motor off. The complete system is successfully tested in real time by creating different faults on the motor. PMID:17336306

    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.

  5. The effect of saturation path on three-phase relative permeability

    Kianinejad, Amir; Chen, Xiongyu; DiCarlo, David A.

    2015-11-01

    Simulation and fluid flow prediction of many petroleum-enhanced oil recovery methods as well as environmental processes such as carbon dioxide (CO2) geological storage or underground water resources remediation requires accurate modeling and determination of relative permeability under different saturation histories. Based on this critical need, several three-phase relative permeability models were developed to predict relative permeability; however, for practical purposes most of them require a variety of parameters introducing undesired complexity to the models. In this work, we attempt to find out if there is a simpler way to express this functionality. To do so, we experimentally measure three-phase, water/oil/gas, relative permeability in a 1 m long water-wet sand pack, under several saturation flow paths to cover the entire three-phase saturation space. We obtain the in situ saturations along the sand pack using a CT scanner and then determine the relative permeabilities of liquid phases directly from the measured in situ saturations using an unsteady state method. The measured data show that at a specific saturation, the oil relative permeability varies significantly (up to two orders of magnitude), depending on the path through saturation space. The three-phase relative permeability data are modeled using standard relative permeability models, Corey-type, and Saturation Weighted Interpolation (SWI). Our measured data suggest that three-phase oil relative permeability in water-wet media is only a function of its own saturation if the residual oil saturation is treated as a function of two saturations. We determine that residual saturation is the key parameter in modeling three-phase relative permeability (effect of saturation history).

  6. High Frequency Soft Switching Of PWM Boost Converter Using Auxiliary Resonant Circuit

    2014-10-01

    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.

  7. A deadbeat control method for a PWM converter applied to a superconducting magnet

    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

  13. Uncertainty Assessment of Interpolation-Based Three Phase Relative Permeability Models

    Ranaee, Ehsan; Giovanni, Porta; Monica, Riva; Alberto, Guadagnini

    2013-04-01

    A major element affecting uncertainty associated with prediction of three-phase flow in reservoirs is the parameterization of relative permeability. The latter are typically obtained through interpolation of two phase relative permeability data because of intrinsic difficulties related to direct measurements. Here, we discuss and analyze the saturation history dependency of water, oil and gas relative permeabilities and distinguish key features of three- and two- phase flow configurations. We start by investigating the advantages and limitations of several methodologies available in the literature and widely adopted in three-phase flow simulation. This analysis is performed by comparing model outcomes against experimental data published in the literature. The results provided by considering Corey-type equations as input to the aforesaid models is compared against the use of linear interpolation of two-phase measurements from oil-water and oil-gas environment. Our results show that available models typically fail to reproduce the set of experimental results ever the full range of saturations. This analysis suggests that not only saturation history but also wettability, residual oil and trapping behavior of oil during drainage and imbibition are key elements distinguishing between the physics of two- and three-phase settings. These effects should be taken in account to predict three-phase relative permeability. We then propose an alternative formulation to compute oil relative permability under three-phase conditions. Our model takes into account (i) the dependence of three-phase oil relative permeability on the saturation path, and (ii) the effect of wettability observed for three-phase systems. The model is based on a sigmoid-type interpolation of the oil relative permeability-saturation data in a two-phase oil-water system. Three-phase oil relative permeability is then computed through an additional interpolation between the oil-water effective sigmoid curve and

  16. Selection of Carrier Waveforms for PWM Inverter%PWM逆变器载波方式的选择

    陈国呈; 屈克庆; 许春雨; 孙承波

    2003-01-01

    In this paper the influence of different carrier waveforms upon the output characteristics of PWM inverter is described indetail. When a triangular carrier waveform is used in hard-switching PWM inverters, harmonics exist in the neighborhood of the out-put frequency of the inverter output voltage and current due to the dead time. The triangular carrier waveform used in soft-switchingPWM inverter will cause difficulties in controlling resonance-trigger time, higher loss in the resonant circuit, and less utilization ofthe DC bus voltage. If a sawtooth carrier is used in hard-switching PWM inverter, there will be severe distortion in the current wave-form. When sawtooth carriers with alternate positive and negative slopes are used in soft-switching PWM inverters, the resonance-trigger time is easy to control, and distortion in the output voltage and current caused by the dead time will not appear.

    In the Mexico`s Gulf Coast and in the North East part of the country there are severe pollution problems on the electric distribution power systems insulators. To solve this problem, in specialized laboratories are reproduced the pollution conditions for their quantitative and qualitative analyses. In general terms, for this purpose special voltage transformers have been used that, for being imported, are very expensive; furthermore there is no defined selection criterion that allows the voltage source to supply the current recommended by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). In this article, a proposal is presented to select a transformer that fulfills the IEC requirements. This equipment, because of its acquisition easiness and economy, permits that any teaching or research institution have a voltage source that allows the experimentation of the pollution phenomena at a minimum cost.

  5. Dual-modality wire-mesh sensor for the visualization of three-phase flows

    Three-phase gas–liquid–liquid flows are very common in petroleum extraction, production, and transport. In this work a dual-modality measuring technique is introduced which may be well applied for three-phase flow visualization. The measuring principle is based on simultaneous excitation with two distinct frequencies to interrogate each crossing point of a mesh sensor, which in turn are linked to conductive and capacitive parts of fluid impedance. The developed system can operate eight transmitter and eight receiver electrodes at a frame repetition frequency up to 781 Hz. The system has been evaluated by measuring reference components. The overall measurement uncertainty was 8.4%, which considering the fast repetition frequency of measurements is suitable for flow investigation. Furthermore, a model-based method to fuse the data from the dual-modality wire-mesh sensor and to obtain individual phase fraction of gas–oil–water flow is introduced. Here a parametrized model is fitted to the measured conductivity and permittivity distributions enabling one to obtain phase fraction from measured data. The method has been applied and tested to the acquired data from a mesh sensor in static and dynamic three-phase mixtures of gas, oil, and water. Fused images and quantitative values show good agreement with reference values. The newly developed dual-modality wire-mesh sensor has the potential to investigate three-phase flows to a good degree of detail, being a valuable tool to investigate such flows. (paper)

  6. Three-phase inductive-coupled structures for contactless PHEV charging system

    2016-07-01

    In this article, a new-type three-phase inductive-coupled structure is proposed for the contactless plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) charging system regarding with SAE J-1773. Four possible three-phase core structures are presented and subsequently investigated by the finite element analysis. To study the correlation between the core geometric parameter and the coupling coefficient, the magnetic equivalent circuit model of each structure is also established. In accordance with the simulation results, the low reluctance and the sharing of flux path in the core material are achieved by the proposed inductive-coupled structure with an arc-shape and three-phase symmetrical core material. It results in a compensation of the magnetic flux between each phase and a continuous flow of the output power in the inductive-coupled structure. Higher coupling coefficient between inductive-coupled structures is achieved. A comparison of coupling coefficient, mutual inductance, and self-inductance between theoretical and measured results is also performed to verify the proposed model. A 1 kW laboratory scale prototype of the contactless PHEV charging system with the proposed arc-shape three-phase inductive-coupled structure is implemented and tested. An overall system efficiency of 88% is measured when two series lithium iron phosphate battery packs of 25.6 V/8.4 Ah are charged.

    Malani, Ateeque; Amat, Miguel; Raghavanpillai, Anilkumar; Wysong, Ernest; Rutledge, Gregory

    2012-02-01

    Interfacial phenomena arise in a number of industrially important situations, such as repellency of liquids on surfaces, condensation, etc. In designing materials for such applications, the key component is their wetting behavior, which is characterized by three-phase static and dynamic contact angle phenomena. Molecular modeling has the potential to provide basic insight into the detailed picture of the three-phase contact line resolved on the sub-nanometer scale which is essential for the success of these materials. We have proposed a computational strategy to study three-phase contact phenomena, where buoyancy of a solid rod or particle is studied in a planar liquid film. The contact angle is readily evaluated by measuring the position of solid and liquid interfaces. As proof of concept, the methodology has been validated extensively using a simple Lennard-Jones (LJ) fluid in contact with an LJ surface. In the dynamic contact angle analysis, the evolution of contact angle as a function of force applied to the rod or particle is characterized by the pinning and slipping of the three phase contact line. Ultimately, complete wetting or de-wetting is observed, allowing molecular level characterization of the contact angle hysteresis.

    In order to investigate the magnesium oxide hydration process in gas-liquid-solid (three-phase) reaction system, magnesium hydroxide was prepared by magnesium oxide hydration in liquid-solid (two-phase) and three-phase reaction systems. A semi-empirical model and the classical shrinking core model were used to fit the experimental data. The fitting result shows that both models describe well the hydration process of three-phase system, while only the semi-empirical model right for the hydration process of two-phase system. The characterization of the hydration product using X-Ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) was performed. The XRD and SEM show hydration process in the two-phase system follows common dissolution/precipitation mechanism. While in the three-phase system, the hydration process undergo MgO dissolution, Mg(OH)2 precipitation, Mg(OH)2 peeling off from MgO particle and leaving behind fresh MgO surface.

    Abstract A new mixer-settler-mixer three chamber integrated extractor is proposed in this work for liquid-liquid- liquid three phase countercurrent and continuous extraction. Experiments revealed the influences of the structural design of the three-liquid-phase extractor and some key operational parameters on three-phase partition of two phenolic isomers, p-nitrophenol (p-NP) and o-nitrophenol (o-NP). The model three-liquid-phase extraction system used here is nonane (organic top-plaase)-polyethylene glycol (PEG 20UU) (polymer mlddle-phase)-(NH4)2SO4 aqueous solution (aqueous bottom-phase). It is indicated that agitating speed and retention time in three-phase mixer are key parameters to extraction fraction of nitrophenol. Dispersion band behavior is related to agitating intensity, and its occurrence does not affect the extraction fraction of target compounds. The present work highlights the possibility of a feasible approach of scaling up of the proposed three-phase extraction apparatus for future in- dustrial-aimed applications.

    The performance of inverter has become a vital role in contributing effective power system nowadays. However the major issue that will reduce the inverter performance is the harmonic distortions that contribute to power losses. Thus, there are a variety of controls techniques have been implemented for inverters switching such as square wave, SHE-PWM, unipolar and bipolar. The square wave type inverter produces output voltage in square shape which has simple logic control and power switches. Next, unipolar and bipolar techniques are using comparator to compare the reference voltage waveform with the triangular waveform. The difference between unipolar and bipolar is there are two reference signals which are compared with the triangular waveform for unipolar switching. On the other hand, bipolar switching compares triangular waveform with a reference signal. Selective Harmonic Elimination Pulse-Width Modulation (SHE-PWM) is another control technique for inverters. This research propose SHE-PWM as a low switching frequency strategy that uses Fourier Series and Newton-Raphson analysis to calculate the switching angles for elimination of harmonic distortion. Fourier Series is used to determine the amplitude of any odd harmonic in the output signal whereas Newton-Raphson is used to solve the equation for finding switching angles. As a result, SHE-PWM can select the low frequency harmonic components need to be eliminated and reduce the harmonic distortion. It also prevents the harmonic distortion that sensitive to the inverter performance

  7. Prediction of 2-level PWM inverter efficiency using MATLAB/Simulink

    Kim, Yoon-Ho; Kim, Seong-Je

    2015-10-01

    This article proposes a direct approach for the prediction of inverter efficiency using MATLAB/Simulink, instead of an indirect loss calculation approach based on analytical models. In analytical approach, efficiency is obtained by calculating individual losses separately, such as switching losses, conduction losses and harmonic losses using analytical models. However, this approach requires accurate analytical models and complicated calculations, due to the variation in the switching frequency, switching transient and modulation techniques. In the proposed approach, the actual waveform of the inverter system is directly generated using MATLAB/Simulink. The instantaneous voltage and current waveform including switching transients are generated. Thus, the proposed approach is very simple and convenient for efficiency prediction. The proposed approach also works for any system parameters or control methods, such as various pulse-width modulation (PWM) techniques, different switching frequencies, switching devices and load types. The proposed approach can be adopted for the efficiency prediction of any switching strategies and any types of inverters such as neutral-point-clamped (NPC) inverters, H bridge inverters and H5 topology, since the topologies are modelled as circuits in the MATLAB/Simulink program and no analytical model is required for the proposed approach. Furthermore, the proposed approach can provide operation techniques and conditions such as PWM techniques and switching frequency that offer high efficiency. In this article, inverter performance is evaluated for various PWM techniques and switching frequencies. The PWM technique and switching frequency that offer high efficiency is obtained. Finally, the proposed approach is verified by experimental results.

    The transformation, DNA strand breaks and its repair ability in human peripheral blood lymphocytes stimulated with PHA, Con A and PWM were respectively assessed following exposure to 60Co gamma rays by 3H-thymidine uptake and hydroxylapatite chromatography. It was showed the transformation of lymphocytes stimulated with PHA, Con A and PWM were suppressed by gamma rays and the dose-effect curves were biphase within the range of 0∼8 Gy. The lymphocytes stimulated with PWM was the most resistant to gamma rays. The extent of DNA strand breaks in lymphocytes induced by gamma rays was linearly related to the dose within the range of 0∼30 Gy and was identical in three kinds of lymphocytes. After post-irradiation incubation of 37 deg C, the DNA strand breaks could be repaired incompletely and after maxium repair the strand breaks were observed again. The repair ratio of strand breaks in the lymphocytes stimulated with PWM was the highest in the cells with three mitogens. The results showed that the difference of radiation effect on the transformation is probably related to the repair ability of DNA strand breaks

  14. A Comparative Study of Harmonic Distortion in Multicarrier Based PWM Switching Techniques for Cascaded H-Bridge Inverters

    HAMEDANI, P.

    2016-08-01

    Full Text Available Multicarrier based PWM switching patterns are commonly utilized to control Cascaded H-bridge (CHB inverters. The main contribution of this paper is to comprehensively investigate the effect of various multicarrier based PWM techniques on harmonic content of the CHB multilevel inverter. In order to achieve this, both of the CHB output voltage and the input current at power grid side have been taken into account. In this work, various PWM modulations such as level shifted (LS, phase shifted (PS, hybrid, and rotative-LS (R-LS have been studied through both simulation and implementation of an experimental setup. By extracting the frequency spectrum and calculation of THD and WTHD indices, a quantitative comparative study of various multicarrier PWM techniques has been carried out. According to the results, the R-LS-PWM methods (i.e. R-PD, and two new proposed R-POD and R-APOD reduce the harmonic distortion of the input current while keeping the obvious advantage of LS-PWM modulation such as lower harmonic distortion of the output voltage. Specially, the proposed R-APOD-PWM modulation offers these preferable privileges at odd frequency ratio values.

The dynamic response has been clearly tested for both conventional and the proposed fuzzy logic based speed controllers. The simulation results showed a better dynamic performance of the induction motor when using the proposed fuzzy logic based speed controller compared with the conventional type with a fixed (PI controller.

    The three-phase contact line formed by the intersection of a liquid-vapor interface of an electrolyte solution with a charged planar substrate is studied in terms of classical density functional theory applied to a lattice model. The influence of the substrate charge density and of the ionic strength of the solution on the intrinsic structure of the three-phase contact line and on the corresponding line tension is analyzed. We find a negative line tension for all values of the surface charge density and of the ionic strength considered. The strength of the line tension decreases upon decreasing the contact angle via varying either the temperature or the substrate charge density. PMID:27116050

    This paper presents a simple, direct method for deriving the approximate, small-signal, average model and control strategy for three-phase diode bridge rectifier operating with electronic smoothing technique. Electronic smoothing inductor (ESI) performs the function of an inductor that has...... controlled variable impedance. This increases power factor (PF) and reduces total harmonic distortions (THDs) in mains current. The ESI based rectifier enables compact and cost effective design of three phase electric drive as size of passive components is reduced significantly. In order to carry out...... stability and voltage regulation studies, the average, small-signal, dynamic model and control strategy of the ESI is developed and validated by simulation and laboratory measurements....

  20. Analysis of three-phase power-supply systems using computer-aided design programs

    A major concern of every designer of large, three-phase power-supply systems is the protection of system components from overvoltage transients. At present, three computer-aided circuit design programs are available in the Magnetic Fusion Energy (MFE) National Computer Center that can be used to analyze three-phase power systems: MINI SCEPTRE, SPICE I, and SPICE II. These programs have been used at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory (LLL) to analyze the operation of a 200-kV dc, 20-A acceleration power supply for the High Voltage Test Stand. Various overvoltage conditions are simulated and the effectiveness of system protective devices is observed. The simulated overvoltage conditions include such things as circuit breaker openings, pulsed loading, and commutation voltage surges in the rectifiers. These examples are used to illustrate the use of the computer-aided, circuit-design programs discussed in this paper
