    2015-01-01

    Three phase Voltage Source Converters (VSCs) are often connected in parallel to realize high current output converter system. The harmonic quality of the resultant switched output voltage can be improved by interleaving the carrier signals of these parallel connected VSCs. As a result, the line current filtering requirement can be reduced. However, an additional inductive filter is required to suppress the circulating current. The integrated inductive component, which combines the functionality of the line filter inductor and the circulating current inductor is presented in this paper. An analysis of the flux density distribution in the integrated inductor is presented and design procedure is described. The analysis has been also verified by performing finite element analysis. The advantage offered by the use of the integrated inductor is demonstrated by comparing its volume with the volume of the state-of-the-art filtering solution. The performance of the integrated inductor is also verified by the experimental measurements.

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.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Yamamoto, Shu; Oyama, Takashi; Ara, Takahiro

    The DC tests can predict the operational impedance of rotational machines by a simple standstill test. This paper presents a new DC test using a voltage-source PWM inverter, which does not require a specially assembled DC-power-source unit that is required to perform conventional DC tests. In this paper, three DC tests (DC decay, step response method, and pulse response methods) using the inverter as a power source are discussed. These tests are performed on an air-core reactor and 5.5kW semi-closed squirrel-cage induction machine to verify their validity. In addition, the authors propose an improved DC decay test that can consider the magnetic saturation of the main flux; this test is referred to as the two-step-voltage DC decay test. This test is also carried out on the tested induction machine. Using the test results, the authors demonstrate the calculation of not only no-load saturation performance by considering the magnetic saturation flux but also the starting performance. By comparing between these calculation results and actual measurement data, the authors validate the proposed two-step-voltage DC decay test.

    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.

    This paper presents an integrated inductor for two parallel interleaved Voltage Source Converters (VSCs). Interleaving of the carrier signals leads to improvement in the harmonic quality of the resultant output voltage and the line current filtering requirements can then be reduced. However, the instantaneous potential difference, caused by the interleaved carriers, may drive large circulating current between the parallel VSCs and an additional inductor is often placed in the circulating current path to suppress the current to an acceptable limit. Integration of both line filter inductor and circulating current filter inductor is proposed. The flux in the magnetic structure is analyzed and the values of the line filter inductance and circulating current filter inductance are derived. Steady-state and the transient performance of the system has been verified by means of simulation and experimental results.

  13. Power Electronic Transformer based Three-Phase PWM AC Drives

    Science.gov (United States)

    Basu, Kaushik

    A Transformer is used to provide galvanic isolation and to connect systems at different voltage levels. It is one of the largest and most expensive component in most of the high voltage and high power systems. Its size is inversely proportional to the operating frequency. The central idea behind a power electronic transformer (PET) also known as solid state transformer is to reduce the size of the transformer by increasing the frequency. Power electronic converters are used to change the frequency of operation. Steady reduction in the cost of the semiconductor switches and the advent of advanced magnetic materials with very low loss density and high saturation flux density implies economic viability and feasibility of a design with high power density. Application of PET is in generation of power from renewable energy sources, especially wind and solar. Other important application include grid tied inverters, UPS e.t.c. In this thesis non-resonant, single stage, bi-directional PET is considered. The main objective of this converter is to generate adjustable speed and magnitude pulse width modulated (PWM) ac waveforms from an ac or dc grid with a high frequency ac link. The windings of a high frequency transformer contains leakage inductance. Any switching transition of the power electronic converter connecting the inductive load and the transformer requires commutation of leakage energy. Commutation by passive means results in power loss, decrease in the frequency of operation, distortion in the output voltage waveform, reduction in reliability and power density. In this work a source based partially loss-less commutation of leakage energy has been proposed. This technique also results in partial soft-switching. A series of converters with novel PWM strategies have been proposed to minimize the frequency of leakage inductance commutation. These PETs achieve most of the important features of modern PWM ac drives including 1) Input power factor correction, 2) Common-mode voltage suppression at the load end, 3) High quality output voltage waveform (comparable to conventional space vector PWM modulated two level inverter) and 4) Minimization of output voltage loss, common-mode voltage switching and distortion of the load current waveform due to leakage inductance commutation. All of the proposed topologies along with the proposed control schemes have been analyzed and simulated in MATLABSimulink. A hardware prototype has been fabricated and tested. The simulation and experimental results verify the operation and advantages of the proposed topologies and their control.

    2001-07-01

    The integrated PWM converter/inverter system has the capability of unity power factor, sinusoidal supply current, bi-directional power capabilities and constant dc link voltage. Also, it has the ability to minimize the dc link capacitance. The integrated PWM converter/inverter fed three-phase induction motor consists of two identical PWM converters. One is used to serve as power regulator with unity power factor and constant dc voltage bus, while the other serve as inverter for the induction motor drive. By using the synchronous rotating-frame the current controllers in both the input and the output of the integrated system are characterized by fast current response and low harmonic distortion. The dc link is the intermediate stage between the PWM converter and the PWM inverter. It mainly consists of aluminium electrolytic capacitors, which are normally installed in the system as the energy storage element, but in some applications, such as high power voltage motor drives, the electrolytic capacitor has several drawbacks from the viewpoints of size, weight, cost and reliability.

    2013-01-01

    Power electronics based MicroGrids consist of a number of voltage source inverters (VSIs) operating in parallel. In this paper, the modeling, control design, and stability analysis of parallel connected three-phase VSIs are derived. The proposed voltage and current inner control loops and the mathematical models of the VSIs are based on the stationary reference frame. A hierarchical control scheme for the paralleled VSI system is developed comprising two levels. The primary control includes the droop method and the virtual impedance loops, in order to share active and reactive power. The secondary control restores the frequency and amplitude deviations produced by the primary control. Also, a synchronization algorithm is presented in order to connect the MicroGrid to the grid.

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

  9. Converter-flux-based current control of voltage source PWM rectifiers - analysis and implementation

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Poellaenen, R.

    2003-07-01

    Pulsewidth-modulated (PWM) rectifier technology is increasingly used in industrial applications like variable-speed motor drives, since it offers several desired features such as sinusoidal input currents, controllable power factor, bidirectional power flow and high quality DC output voltage. To achieve these features, however, an effective control system with fast and accurate current and DC voltage responses is required. From various control strategies proposed to meet these control objectives, in most cases the commonly known principle of the synchronous-frame current vector control along with some space-vector PWM scheme have been applied. Recently, however, new control approaches analogous to the well-established direct torque control (DTC) method for electrical machines have also emerged to implement a high-performance PWM rectifier. In this thesis the concepts of classical synchronous-frame current control and DTC-based PWM rectifier control are combined and a new converter-flux-based current control (CFCC) scheme is introduced. To achieve sufficient dynamic performance and to ensure a stable operation, the proposed control system is thoroughly analysed and simple rules for the controller design are suggested. Special attention is paid to the estimation of the converter flux, which is the key element of converter-flux-based control. Discrete-time implementation is also discussed. Line-voltage-sensorless reactive reactive power control methods for the L- and LCL-type line filters are presented. For the L-filter an open-loop control law for the d-axis current reference is proposed. In the case of the LCL-filter the combined open-loop control and feedback control is proposed. The influence of the erroneous filter parameter estimates on the accuracy of the developed control schemes is also discussed. A new zero vector selection rule for suppressing the zero-sequence current in parallel-connected PWM rectifiers is proposed. With this method a truly standalone and independent control of the converter units is allowed and traditional transformer isolation and synchronised-control-based solutions are avoided. The implementation requires only one additional current sensor. The proposed schemes are evaluated by the simulations and laboratory experiments. A satisfactory performance and good agreement between the theory and practice are demonstrated. (orig.)

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available Multilevel inverters are increasingly being used in high-power medium voltage industrial drive applications due to their superior performance compared to conventional two-level inverters. Thre are a number of Pulse width modulation (PWM techniques applied in recent years. The most widely applied PWM techniques are Sine Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM and Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (SVPWM.  SPWM is the most simple modulation technique that can realize easily in analog circuit.  However, it has some drawbacks such as higher total harmonic distortion (THD, lower effective DC utilization and lower switching frequency. Space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM is widely used because of their easier digital realization and better DC bus utilization and lower THD. The complexity is due to the difficulty in determining the reference vector location, on times calculation, and switching states selection. This paper presents a simple SVPWM algorithm for diode clamped three level inverters based on standard two-level SVPWM which can easily determine the location of reference vector, calculate the on-times, the selection of switching states. Three level diode clamped inverter (3LDCI using space vector modulation technique has been modeled and simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK and Origin 6.1 with a passive R-L load that can be extended to any level. Simulation results are presented to verify the proposed SVPWM control in terms of THD. The results are compared with conventional sinusoidal pulse width modulation (SPWM where SVPWM shows better performance than SPWM in terms of THD.

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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    This paper presents an analytical method for designing the inductor of three-phase power factor correction converters (PFCs). The complex behavior of the inductor current complicates the inductor design procedure as well as the core loss and copper loss calculations. Therefore, this paper analyzes the inductor voltage/current for sinusoidal pulse width modulation technique. Accordingly, the maximum current ripple as a function of the dc link voltage is derived and the minimum required inductance value is calculated. To explain the copper and the core losses in the inductor, the single-phase equivalent circuit is used to provide the inductor current harmonic spectrum. Therefore, using the harmonic spectrum, the low and high frequency copper losses are calculated. The high frequency minor B-H loops in one switching cycle are also analyzed. Then, the loss map provided by the measurement setup is used to calculate the core loss in the PFC application. To investigate the impact of the dc link voltage level, two inductors for different dc voltage levels are designed and the results are compared.

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    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 ?-? 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.

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 {alpha}-{beta} 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.

  11. Realization of a Carrier-Based Unbalanced Output Space Vector PWM Strategy Using Analogue and Digital Techniques for Three-Leg Voltage Source Inverter Fed Two-Phase Induction Motors

    Science.gov (United States)

    Charumit, Chakrapong; Kinnares, Vijit

    This paper proposes the realization of a carrier-based space vector pulsewidth modulation (SVPWM) method using analogue and digital techniques. This PWM method provides unbalanced phase outputs for a two-phase three-leg voltage source inverter (VSI). The principle is fully described. The proposed space vector equivalent phase leg reference voltages are derived from conventional ones. With the proposed SVPWM method, the amplitude of the unbalanced phase voltages can be easily controlled as required whilst the phase difference angle is kept at 90 degrees. This characteristic is suitable for a control method of an asymmetrical type two-phase induction motor. The validity of the proposed method is verified by both calculated and experimental results under a variation of PWM parameters with resistive-inductive and motor loads in terms of space vector equivalent reference waveforms, current waveforms and space vector trajectories and so on.

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    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 drive system consists of four classical three-phase voltage inverters (VSIs) and all four dc sources are deliberately kept isolated. Therefore, zero-sequence/homopolar current components cannot flow. The original and effective power sharing algorithm is proposed in this paper with three variables (degree of freedom) based on synchronous field oriented control (FOC). A standard three-level space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) by nearest three vectors (NTVs) approach is adopted to regulate each couple of VSIs. The proposed power sharing algorithm is verified by complete numerical simulation modeling (Matlab/ Simulink-PLECS software) of whole ac drive system by observing the dynamic behaviors in different designed condition. Set of results are provided in this paper, which confirms a good agreement with theoretical development.

    Full Text Available A Three - Level Voltage Source Inverter is used increasingly to supply a variable frequency and variable voltage for variable speed applications. A suitable pulse width modulation (PWM technique is employed to obtain the required output voltage at the line side of the inverter. This paper studies popular multi-level topology, Diode Clamped or Neutral Point Clamped for three-level. Two methods of Sine-triangle (SPWM and two methods of Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (SVPWM are employed to generate the modulation wave. These modulation waves are compared against a triangular carrier to generate the PWM signals for the three phases. In SVPWM methods, a revolving reference voltage vector is provided as voltage reference instead of three phase modulating waves used in SPWM. The magnitude and frequency of the fundamental component in the line side are controlled by the magnitude and frequency, respectively, of the reference vector. Space Vector Modulation Technique has become the important PWM technique for three phase Voltage Source Inverters because of its increased dc bus utilization and reduced harmonic distortion compared to SPWM. The four PWM methods are simulated in MATLAB/SIMULINK software and are compared for THD and Capacitor Balance. Programs are carried out using Embedded Editor functions and matlab editor functions. The simulation study reveals that Space vector PWM utilizes dc bus voltage more effectively, generates less THD and improved capacitor balance when compared to sine PWM.

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    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 inverter, without a transformer, consists of a small number of fully integrated circuits and the output sinus-shaped signals are based on the Pulse Width Modulated technique.Its design was based on an analogue structure. In the power section a compact IGBT power module was used. This inverter is simple, it can easily be adapted to a different power and voltage range by simple changing the IGBTs power module. To assess its performances, the inverter was coupled to a Photovoltaic bore-hole submersible system with centrifugal and progressive cavity pumps. This memoir presents the results of the efficiency of the inverter itself and the efficiency of the pumping subsystem.

    Full Text Available Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation variable speed drives are increasingly applied in many new industrial applications that require superior performance. Be it domestic application or industry, motion control is required everywhere. Recently, developments in power electronics and semiconductor technology have lead improvements in power electronic systems. Recent developments in speed control methods of the induction motor have led to their large scale use in almost all electrical drives. Variable voltage and frequency supply to ac drives is invariably obtained from a three-phase voltage source inverter, which is carrier-based sinusoidal PWM. Simulink is utilized with MATLAB to get a reliable and flexible simulation. PWM technique is proven to be an effective way of controlling speed of induction motor. In ac motor drives, SPWM inverters make it possible to control both frequency and magnitude of the voltage and current applied to a motor. As a result, PWM inverter-powered motor drives are more variable and offer in a wide range better efficiency and higher performance when compared to fixed frequency motor drives. Three phase voltage-fed PWM inverters are recently showing growing popularity for multi-megawatt industrial drive applications. Simulation results are obtained using MATLAB/Simulink environment for effectiveness of the study.

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available The pulse width modulated voltage source inverters (PWM-VSI dominate in the modern industrial environment. The conventional PWM methods are designed to have higher fundamental voltage, easy filtering and reduced total harmonic distortion (THD. There are number of clustered harmonics around the multiples of switching frequency in the output of conventional sinusoidal pulse width modulation (SPWM and space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM inverters. This is due to their fixed switching frequency while the variable switching frequency makes the filtering very complex. Random carrier PWM (RCPWM methods are the host of PWM methods, which use randomized carrier frequency and result in a harmonic profile with well distributed harmonic power (no harmonic possesses significant magnitude and hence no filtering is required. This paper proposes a chaos-based PWM (CPWM strategy, which utilizes a chaotically changing switching frequency to spread the harmonics continuously to a wideband and to reduce the peak harmonics to a great extent. This can be an effective way to suppress the current harmonics and torque ripple in induction motor drives. The proposed CPWM scheme is simulated using MATLAB / SIMULINK software and implemented in three phase voltage source inverter (VSI using field programmable gate array (FPGA.

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

    This paper deals with a novel pulse width modulation (PWM) switching strategy for a voltage source inverter through carrier modification. The proposed discontinuous sine carrier PWM (DPWM1) method, which uses two modified sine waves, has a better spectral quality and a higher fundamental component. This improved waveform has been derived from the original sine PWM technique through the addition of the 17-percent third-harmonic component to the original sine reference.

  2. Three-phase Resonant DC-link Converter

    Munk-Nielsen, Stig

    1997-01-01

    The purpose of the project is to develop a three-phase resonant converter suitable for standard speed drives. The motivation for working with resonant converters is found in the problem of the standard converter type used today. In standard converter type Pulse Width Modulated-Voltage Source Inverter, PWM-VSI, the switches are subject to high current and voltage stress during switching, which causes losses. The fast switching of modern switches reduces switching losses. Unfortunately this procedure increased dv/dt and the size of the input/output filters of the PWM-SVI must be increased. The high speed of the switches cannot be fully utilizied. By using a parallel resonant converter the switching happens at low or zero voltage which reduses switch losses. The dv/dt is controlled by the resonant circuit, and it is therefore reduced significantly. The perspective using a resonant converter is high switching frequency combined with a high converter efficiency and low dv/dt. In the first report several resonant converters are investigated to find a resonant converter that can complete with the standard PWM-VSI converter. Four converters were selected for the theoretical analysis, and the converters are simulated. An evaluation of the resonant converters is made, and one converter is selected for the realization. In the second report the realization of the selected resonant converter is described. This includes analysis, design and test of the converter. A new control principle, using no additional power electric components is eliminating the high voltage peaks associated with the resonant circuit. The resonant link voltage peaks are limited below 2.1 times the DC link voltages. A new principle eliminating former resonant converter stability problems are proposed, implemented and tested. A resonant converter efficiency of 97 [%] was measured. The low dv/dt of the converter makes it possible to drive long cables without filtering. A successful test with a 300 [m] long cable and an induction machine load was carried out. It is concluded that a stable, high efficiency and high switching frequency three phase parallel resonant converter is realized.

  6. Design and Analysis of Sliding Mode Controller and Simplified Space Vector Modulation for Three Phase Shunt Active Power Filter

    S. Elangovan

    2014-07-01

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

    As the increasing of power electronics based systems, not only the component-based analysis but also a systematic interaction analysis with each other systems are being important. Especially studies about the stability and the harmonics interaction are critical in order to establish the required performance in a power network. However, the traditional small-signal modeling approaches are not enough to represent the complexity of the interaction due to the time varying components of such systems. This paper compares the small-signal modeling methods for harmonic analysis of AC - DC converters and discusses their advantages and limitations. The Harmonic State Space (HSS) model based on the Linear Time-Periodically varying (LTP) system and the traditional small signal model based on the Linear Time-Invariant (LTI) system are evaluated. The results show that the HSS model presents superior performance for the AC-DC converters with a low ratio of switching to the fundamental frequency, and it provides an effective way to reveal the harmonic interaction and stability analysis for the future power electronics based power systems.

    Full Text Available A direct Selective current harmonic elimination pulse width modulation technique is proposed for induction motor drive fed from voltage source inverter. The developed adaptive filtering algorithm for the selective current harmonic elimination in a three phase Voltage Source Inverter is a direct method to improve the line current quality of the Voltage Source Inverter base drive at any load condition. The self-adaptive algorithm employed has the capability of managing the time varying nature of load (current.

  4. High performance direct instantaneous power control of PWM rectifiers

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    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. In this paper, a new technique is proposed for a variable-hysteresis-band controller based on dead beat control applied to three phase voltage source PWM inverters feeding AC motors. Its main aim is firstly ensure a constant switching frequency and secondly the synchronization of modulation pulses using the phase-locked-loop with loop gain compensation in order to ensure a better stability. The behavior of the proposed technique is verified by simulation.

    2014-01-01

    LCL filter is the common interface between the Pulse Width Modulated Voltage Source Converter (PWM VSC) and the utility grid due to high harmonic attenuation capability and reduced size of the passive elements. The present paper investigates the most promising passive damping methods for the LCL topology but also propose an overview of high order filters capable to offer even more attenuation than the LCL filter at a reduced size. This is the case of more recently introduced LCL topology with tuned traps. However, it is shown that by decreasing the size of the passive elements the robustness of the filter also is decreased. Thus, a comparison of the filter features including the robustness towards grid impedance variation, harmonic attenuation capability and losses in the damping circuit became interesting from a practical implementation point of view. The design of the proposed filters is validated by simulation and experimental results and covers two scenarios: high and low/medium power applications.

Synchronous reference frame (SRF)-based controller is used for harmonic and reactive power compensation generated from any configuration of n [...] on-linear loads. Under normal line conditions the UPS system works with universal filtering capabilities, such as compensating the input currents and output voltages. Two three-phase pulsewidth modulation (PWM) converters, called series and parallel active filters, are used to perform the series and parallel active power-line compensation. The series active filter works as sinusoidal current source in phase with the input voltage, drawing from utility sinusoidal and balanced input currents with low total harmonic distortion (THD). The parallel active filter works as sinusoidal voltage source in phase with the input voltage, providing regulated and sinusoidal output voltages with low THD. The performance of the UPS system is evaluated in three-phase, four-wire systems. Experimental results are presented to confirm the theoretical studies.

    A conception and results of simulation tests of a neural network current controller for three-phase transistor PWM inverters are presented. This converter realizes discrete modulation and can be used for both hard and soft (resonant) commutated inverters. For teaching a multilayer neural network use is made of a PWM voltage pattern generated by an optimal controller which minimizes the RMS value of current error in each sampling cycle. As shown in this article the neural network controller can guarantee a practically optimal control quality with no need for any complex optimization procedures.

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

    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.

    Single-phase voltage source converter (VSC) is an important power electronic converter (PEC), including single-phase voltage source inverter (VSI), single-phase voltage source rectifier (VSR), single-phase active power filter (APF) and single-phase grid-connection inverter (GCI). Single-phase VSC as well as its modulation algorithms is widely used as the fundamental part of large scale PEC’s, having a long list of applications. In the paper, as first, on the basis of the discontinuous pulse-width modulation (DPWM) of three-phase VSC, a new DPWM of single-phase VSR is presented in virtue of zero-sequence component injection, in order to reduce power loss and increased overall efficiency. And then by reconstructing the other two phase input voltages and currents, the transformation from stationary frame (abc) to rotating frame (dq frame) is designed. Finally, a PI regulator based controller for single-phase VSR is analyzed and simulated by means of MATLAB/SIMULINK by using the presented DPWM and dq transformation. The simulation results show the validation of the above DPWM algorithm and control theory.

    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.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    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 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.

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Gohil, Ghanshyamsinh Vijaysinh; Maheshwari, Ram Krishan

    2015-01-01

    Parallel voltage-source converters (VSCs) require an inductive filter to suppress the circulating current. The size of this filter can be minimized by reducing either the maximum value of the flux linkage or the core losses. This paper presents a modified discontinuous pulsewidth modulation (DPWM) scheme to reduce the maximum value of the flux linkage and the core losses in the circulating current filter. In the proposed PWM scheme, the dwell time of an active vector is divided within a half-carrier cycle to ensure simultaneous occurrence of the same zero vectors in both VSCs. A function to decide the ratio of the dwell time of the divided active vector is also presented. The effect of the proposed PWM scheme on the maximum value of the flux linkage and the core losses is analyzed and compared with that of the space vector modulation and 60$^circ$ clamped DPWM schemes. The analytical expressions for the maximum value of the flux linkage are derived for each of these PWM schemes. In addition, the effect of the proposed PWM scheme on the line current ripple and the switching losses is also analyzed and compared. To verify the analysis, experimental results are presented, which prove the effectiveness of the proposed PWM scheme.

Based on the measurements, it is shown that the spread effect of the discrete components from the motor current spectra is very effective independent of the modulation index.

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

    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.

    This paper proposes a common-mode voltage reduction method base on SVPWM(Space-Vector Pulsewidth Modulation) in three phase PWM converter/inverter system. By shifting the active voltage vector of inverter and aligning this to the active voltage vector of converter, it is possible to eliminate a common-mode voltage pulse in one control period. Since the proposed PWM method maintains the active voltage vector, it does not affect the control performance of PWM converter/inverter system. Without ant extra hardware, overall common mode voltage dv/dt and corresponding leakage current can be reduced to two-third of the conventional three phase symmetric SVPWM scheme.

  6. A modified two-level three-phase quasi-soft-switching inverter

    Liu, Yusheng; Wu, Weimin

    2014-01-01

    A traditional Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) has higher efficiency than a Current Voltage Source (CSI) due to the less conduction power loss. However, the reverse recovery of the free-wheeling diode limits the efficiency improvement for the silicon devices based hard-switching VSI. The traditional quasi-soft-switching inverter can alternate between VSI and CSI by using a proper control scheme and thereby reduce the power losses caused by the reverse recovery of the free-wheeling diode. Nevertheless, slightly extra conduction power loss of the auxiliary switch is also introduced. In order to reduce the extra conduction power loss and the voltage stress across the DC-link capacitor, a modified two-level three-phase quasi-soft-switching inverter is proposed by using a SiC MOSFET instead of an IGBT. The principle of the modified two-level three-phase quasi-soft-switching inverter is analyzed in detail. And the performance is verified through simulations and experiments on a 5 kW/380 V three-phase prototype.

  12. IGBT Fuses for Protection Against Explosion in Voltage Source Converters

    The consequences of electrical faults can be severe; not only to the equipment, but also in the worse case, to people if safety principles are not observed. Every year new applications based on DC-link Voltage Source Converters are added and the demand for protection of power electronics increases regarding the high-power IGBT modules. Due to the fact that the power level increases more energy is stored in the DC-link and even with an active protection, a high-power IGBT still has a risk of case rupture (explode) when a circuit failure condition occurs. A possible solution is a protection of the converter with standard High Speed Fuses or High Speed IGBT fuses. It is discussed that protection can be achieved by introduction of IGBT fuse located in the DC-link. Experiments show that explosion can be avoided by use of High Speed Fuse protection and the added inductance of standard High Speed- and IGBT Fuses in the DC-link is investigated. The current distribution in fuses is discussed when high frequency components are present in the load current. Further it is discussed how the extra cost for IGBT fuses may be balanced by ease of maintenance and less downtime of manufacturing equipment.

  13. Diode-assisted buck-boost voltage source inverters

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    2007-01-01

    This paper proposes buck-boost voltage source inverters with a unique X-shape diode-capacitor network inserted between inverter circuitry and dc source for producing a large voltage boost gain. Comparing with other voltage buck-boost techniques, the presented topologies with only a little more passive components can significantly enhance voltage boost capability for dc-ac inversion. With different front-end circuitries, the diode-assisted buck-boost inverters can show different operational principle and voltage boost ratio. Carefully analyzing the operational principle for the inherent energy charging and discharging processes of passive components reveals that the dc-link voltage can alternate between two levels, which therefore demonstrate the phenomena that the specified modulation schemes should note. A modulation scheme that can achieve optimized harmonic switching is first designed with symmetrical state placement in each switching sequence to avoid unnecessary voltage stress across both passive and active components. To reduce the total commutation count, the designed modulation scheme is then modified without increasing voltage stress. All theoretical findings were verified experimentally using a number of scale-down laboratory prototypes.

  15. Component-Minimized Buck-Boost Voltage Source Inverters

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Gao, F.; Loh, P.C.

    2007-01-01

    This paper presents the design of buck-boost B4 inverters that can be derived from either ?uk- or SEPIC-derived buck-boost B6 inverters. Unlike traditional inverters, the integration of front-end voltage boost circuitry and inverter circuitry allows it to perform buck-boost voltage inversion. In order to form a distinct neutral potential in the corresponding voltage boost circuitry for correct B4 inverter operation, necessary modifications are derived step by step. The resulted dc networks with symmetrical placement of passive components allow complete charging and equal energy distribution between capacitors. Modulation wise, the proposed buck-boost B4 inverters can be controlled using a carefully designed carrier-based pulse-width modulation (PWM) scheme that will always ensure balanced threephase outputs as desired, while simultaneously achieving minimal voltage stress across semiconductors. Besides the advantage of reduced active components, buck-boost B4 inverters use a little more passive components when compared with buck-boost B6 inverters, which would allow a selectable tradeoff in practice. Moreover, analysis for discontinuous conduction mode of inductor current reveals the additional voltage relationship between dc input and ac output which is beyond the expectation when continuous inductor current is assumed. These theoretical findings, together with the inverter practicality, have been confirmed in Matlab/PLECS simulations and  experimentally using laboratory implemented inverter prototypes.

    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.

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

    The interleaving of the carrier signals of the parallel Voltage Source Converters (VSCs) can reduce the harmonic content in the resultant switched output voltages. As a result, the size of the line filter inductor can be reduced. However, in addition to the line filter, an inductive filter is often required to suppress the circulating current. The size of the system can be reduced by integrating these two inductors in a single magnetic component. A integrated inductor, which combines the functionality of both the line filter inductor and the circulating current filter inductor is presented. The PulseWidth Modulation (PWM) schemes to reduce the flux in some parts of the integrated inductor are also analyzed. The flux reduction achieved by using these schemes is demonstrated by comparing these schemes with the conventional space vector modulation and the $60\\degree$ clamped discontinuous PWM scheme. The impact of these PWM schemes on the harmonic performance is also discussed. Simulation and experimental results are presented to validate the analysis.

    Full Text Available This paper deals with a novel natural sampled pulse width modulation (PWM switching strategy for voltage source inverter through carrier modification. The proposed inverted sine carrier PWM (ISCPWM method, which uses the conventional sinusoidal reference signal and an inverted sine carrier, has a better spectral quality and a higher fundamental component compared to the conventional sinusoidal PWM (SPWM without any pulse dropping. The ISCPWM strategy enhances the fundamental output voltage particularly at lower modulation index ranges while keeping the total harmonic distortion (THD lower without involving changes in device switching losses. The presented mathematical preliminaries for both SPWM and ISCPWM give a conceptual understanding and a comparison of the strategies. The detailed comparison of the harmonic content and fundamental component of the ISCPWM output for different values of modulation index with the results obtained for the SPWM is also presented. Finally, the proposed modulator has been implemented in field programmable gate array (FPGA- Xilinx Spartan 3 and tested with the proto-type inverter.

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

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ahmed, Waheed; Usman Ali, Syed M.

    2013-12-01

    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), & 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).

  14. Inductor Design Comparison of Three-wire and Four-wire Three-phase Voltage Source Converters in Power Factor Correction Applications

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Kouchaki, Alireza; Nymand, Morten

    This paper studies the inductor design for three-wire and four-wire power factor correction converter (PFC). Designing the efficient inductor for this converter (regardless of connecting the midpoint to the ground) requires a comprehensive knowledge of the inductor current and voltage behavior. This paper investigates how changing three-wire PFC to four-wire counterpart influences the inductor design in terms of size, losses, and overall efficiency of the converter. Therefore, the inductor current and voltage waveforms are analyzed and generalized in both cases for one switching cycle to build a foundation for comparison. Accordingly, the analyses are able to interpret the differences between both configurations and explain the core losses and the copper losses of inductors, especially those caused by the high frequency ac current ripple. Finally, two inductors are designed for a 5 kW PFC experimental setup. The experimental results which are performed for three-wire and four-wire PFC show a good match with the analyses.

  18. Assessment of the impact that individual voltage source has on a generator’s stability

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Dmitrova, Evgeniya; Jóhannsson, Hjörtur

    2012-01-01

    This paper presents an approach for splitting equivalent Thevenin voltage into components induced by each voltage source in the reduced grid. Thevenin equivalent representation of the system is sometimes used for stability assessment of a given generator, where the Thevenin voltage is one of the key variables affecting the stability conditions. Thevenin voltage is formed by components induced by each voltage source in the grid, while depending on topology and system parameters, the impact of these components on the equivalent Thevenin voltage Eth might vary considerably. This paper demonstrates how the impact of individual voltage source to the Eth might be defined utilizing system admittance matrix. Knowledge about alternation of Eth while applying changes to either admittance matrix or generators’ excitation and torque gives promising perspective for determination of effective countermeasures aimed on instability prevention. Suggested approach for Eth decomposition is applied to the IEEE 30 bus test system.

    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)

    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.

  7. Harmonics mitigation of dead time effects in PWM converters using a repetitive controller

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Yang, Yongheng; Zhou, Keliang

    2015-01-01

    In order to prevent the power switching devices (e.g., the Insulated-Gate-Bipolar-Transistor, IGBT) from shoot-through in voltage source converter during a switching period, a dead time is added either in the hardware drivers of the IGBTs or implemented in the software Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) scheme. Both methods will lead to a degradation of the injected current power quality. Thus, the harmonics induced by the dead time have to be compensated in order to achieve a satisfactory current as required by the standards. In this paper, a repetitive controller has been introduced to eliminate the dead-time effect in grid-connected PWM converters. The repetitive controller has been plugged into a proportional resonant based fundamental controller. Compared with the traditional dead-time compensation solutions, the repetitive controller can effectively compensate the dead-time harmonics as well as other low-order distortions, and also it is a simple method without hardware modifications. Experimental results are demonstrating the advantages of the proposed dead-time effect mitigation method compared to the resonant based harmonic compensator.

  11. Novel PWM Modifying Method for Detecting DC-bus Current to Facilitate Noise Adaptation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Arakawa, Yoichiro; Aoyagi, Shigehisa; Nagata, Koichiro; Arao, Yusuke

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

    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...

    2015-01-01

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

    The three-phase grid-connected converter is widely used in renewable and electric power system applications. Traditionally, control of the three-phase grid-connected converter is based on the standard decoupled d-q vector control mechanism. Nevertheless, the study of this paper shows that there is a limitation in the conventional standard vector control method. Some of the limitations have also been found recently by other researchers. To overcome the shortage of the conventional vector control technique, this paper proposes a new direct-current d-q vector control mechanism in a nested-loop control structure, based on which an optimal control strategy is developed in a nonlinear programming formulation. The behaviors of both the conventional and proposed control methods are compared and evaluated in simulation and laboratory hardware experiment environments, both of which demonstrates that the proposed approach is effective for grid-connected power converter control in a wide system conditions while the conventional standard vector control approach may behave improperly especially when the converter operates beyond its PWM saturation limit.

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    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.

    Salah, Wael A.; Ishak, Dahaman; Hammadi, Khaleel J.

    2011-05-01

    This paper describes a new PWM switching strategy to minimize the torque ripples in BLDC motor which is based on sensored rotor position control. The scheme has been implemented using a PIC microcontroller to generate a modified Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) signals for driving power inverter bridge. The modified PWM signals are successfully applied to the next up-coming phase current such that its current rise is slightly delayed during the commutation instant. Experimental results show that the current waveforms of the modified PWM are smoother than that in conventional PWM technique. Hence, the output torque exhibits lower ripple contents.

  7. Performance evaluation of wideband bio-impedance spectroscopy using constant voltage source and constant current source

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

  10. Semi-passive piezoelectric noise control in transmission by synchronized switching damping on voltage source

    Science.gov (United States)

    Faiz, A.; Guyomar, D.; Petit, L.; Buttay, C.

    2005-09-01

    This paper deals with the so called SSD (stands for Synchronized Switch Damping) technique that is a semi-passive approach developed to address the problem of structural vibration damping and noise reduction. Compared to standard passive piezoelectric damping, this technique offers the advantage of self-adaptation with environmental variations (e.g. temperature). On the contrary to the active damping systems, its implementation does not require any sophisticated signal processing or any bulk power. In the semi passive approach, the piezoelectric element is continuously switched from open circuit to short circuit synchronously to the strain. Due to this switching mechanism, a phase difference appears between the strain induced by an incident acoustic wave and the resulting voltage, thus creating energy dissipation. With the non-linear process, damping performances directly depend on the electromechanical coupling coefficient of the system. For the weakly coefficient coupling systems, the voltage amplitude of the piezoelectric elements can be artificially increased by switching on voltage sources. Using this new method SSDV (stands for Synchronized Switch Damping on Voltage source), 16.1?dB attenuation on the transmitted wave pressure in the tube is obtained whereas only 8?dB were achieved with the classical SSDI (stands for Synchronized Switch Damping on Inductor). Furthermore, as this method is adaptive, attenuation is observed over a 600?Hz-wide frequency band.

    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.

  14. A Three-Phase Dual-Input Matrix Converter for Grid Integration of Two AC Type Energy Resources

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Liu, Xiong; Wang, Peng

    2013-01-01

    This paper proposes a novel dual-input matrix converter (DIMC) to integrate two three-phase ac type energy resources to a power grid. The proposed matrix converter is developed based on the traditional indirect matrix converter under reverse power flow operation mode, but with its six-switch voltage source converter replaced by a nine-switch configuration. With the additional three switches, the proposed DIMC can provide six in put terminals, which make it possible to integrate two independent ac sources into a single grid-tied power electronics interface. The proposed converter has input-to-output voltage boost capability since power flows from the converter’s voltage source side to its current source side. Commanded currents can be extracted from the two input sources to the grid. The proposed control and modulation schemes guarantee sinusoidal input and output waveforms as well as unity input power factors. The simulation and experimental results using a laboratory prototype are provided to validate the effectiveness of the proposed control and modulation schemes for the proposed converter.

  15. 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 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.

  20. Rotor cage fault diagnosis in three-phase induction motors based on a current and virtual flux approach

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    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

    A first study of voltage stability with relevant amount of Voltage Sourced Converter based High Voltage Direct Current (VSC-HVDC) transmission is presented, with particular focus on the converters’ behaviour when reaching their rated current. The detrimental effect of entering the current limitation on the Power-Voltage (PV) curves at a load bus is exemplified on a three-bus system, proposing a method to model the converters in current limiting mode through ideal current sources. The influence of the current magnitude and angle on the reduced stability margin is analysed and results show that, when the current limit is reached, despite the detrimental effect brought about by an increased equivalent transmission impedance, the loss of stability margin can be minimised by proper control of the converter.

  5. A low-power circuit for piezoelectric vibration control by synchronized switching on voltage sources

    CERN Document Server

    Shen, Hui; Ji, Hongli; Zhu, Kongjun; Balsi, Marco; Giorgio, Ivan; dell'Isola, Francesco

    2010-01-01

    In the paper, a vibration damping system powered by harvested energy with implementation of the so-called SSDV (synchronized switch damping on voltage source) technique is designed and investigated. In the semi-passive approach, the piezoelectric element is intermittently switched from open-circuit to specific impedance synchronously with the structural vibration. Due to this switching procedure, a phase difference appears between the strain induced by vibration and the resulting voltage, thus creating energy dissipation. By supplying the energy collected from the piezoelectric materials to the switching circuit, a new low-power device using the SSDV technique is proposed. Compared with the original self-powered SSDI (synchronized switch damping on inductor), such a device can significantly improve its performance of vibration control. Its effectiveness in the single-mode resonant damping of a composite beam is validated by the experimental results.

  6. Passivity-based design of robust passive damping for LCL-filtered voltage source converters

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Wang, Xiongfei; Blaabjerg, Frede

    2015-01-01

    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. Thus, the influence of time delay in the current control is included, which allows a relaxed design of the passive damper with the reduced power loss and improved stability robustness against grid parameters variations. Design procedures of two commonly used passive dampers with LCL-filtered VSCs are illustrated. Experimental results validate the effectiveness of the approach.

    Wang, Xiongfei; Blaabjerg, Frede

    2014-01-01

    This paper analyses the stability of paralleled voltage source converters in AC distributed power systems. An impedance-based stability analysis method is presented based on the Nyquist criterion for multiloop system. Instead of deriving the impedance ratio as usual, the system stability is assessed based on a series of Nyquist diagrams drawn for the terminal impedance of each converter. Thus, the effect of the right half-plane zeros of terminal impedances in the derivation of impedance ratio for paralleled source-source converters is avoided. The interaction between the terminal impedance of converter and the passive network can also be predicted by the Nyquist diagrams. This method is applied to evaluate the current and voltage controller interactions of converters in both grid-connected and islanded operations. Simulations and experimental results verify the effectiveness of theoretical analysis.

  8. Estimation of the Plant Time Constant of Current-Controlled Voltage Source Converters

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Vidal, Ana; Yepes, Alejandro G.

    2014-01-01

    Precise knowledge of the plant time constant is essential to perform a thorough analysis of the current control loop in voltage source converters (VSCs). As the loop behavior can be significantly influenced by the VSC working conditions, the effects associated to converter losses should be included in the model, through an equivalent series resistance. In a recent work, an algorithm to identify this parameter was developed, considering the inductance value as known and practically constant. Nevertheless, the plant inductance can also present important uncertainties with respect to the inductance of the VSC interface filter measured at rated conditions. This paper extends that method so that both parameters of the plant time constant (resistance and inductance) are estimated. Such enhancement is achieved through the evaluation of the closed-loop transient responses of both axes of the synchronous reference frame when a proportional integral current controller is implemented. Experimental results validate the approach.

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Wang, Xiongfei; Li, YunWei

    2015-01-01

    The virtual impedance concept is increasingly used for the control of power electronic systems. Generally, the virtual impedance loop can either be embedded as an additional degree of freedom for active stabilization and disturbance rejection, or be employed as a command reference generator for the converters to provide ancillary services. This paper presents an overview of the virtual-impedance-based control strategies for voltage-source and current-source converters. The control output impedance shaping attained by the virtual impedances is generalized first using the impedance-based models. Different virtual impedances and their implementation issues are then discussed. A number of practical examples are demonstrated to illustrate the feasibility of virtual impedances. Emerging applications and future trends of virtual impedances in power electronic systems conclude this paper.

  10. Virtual RC Damping of LCL-Filtered Voltage Source Converters with Extended Selective Harmonic Compensation

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Wang, Xiongfei; Blaabjerg, Frede

    2015-01-01

    Active damping and harmonic compensation are two common challenges faced by LCL-filtered voltage source converters. To manage them holistically, this paper begins by proposing a virtual RC damper in parallel with the passive filter capacitor. The virtual damper is actively inserted by feeding back the passive capacitor current through a high-pass filter, which indirectly, furnishes two superior features. They are the mitigation of phase lag experienced by a conventional damper and the avoidance of instability caused by the negative resistance inserted unintentionally. Moreover, with the virtual RC damper, the frequency region, within which the harmonic compensation is effective, can be extended beyond the gain crossover frequency. This is of interest to some high-performance applications, but has presently not been achieved by existing schemes. Performance of the proposed scheme has been tested in the laboratory with results obtained for demonstrating stability and harmonic compensation.

    Wang, Xiongfei; Blaabjerg, Frede

    2015-01-01

    Active damping of LCL-filter resonance based on single-state feedback control is widely used with voltage source converters. Its robustness against grid impedance variation has always been a major concern with its controller design. To deal with this issue, this paper begins by developing a generalized impedance-based model of grid current control with feedback-type active damping. Then, a controller design method based on the z-domain root contours and frequency-domain passivity theorem is proposed. It not only allows a co-design of the grid current controller and damping controller, but ensures also a robust stabilization against the grid parameters variations. For illustration, the approach is applied to design three single-state feedback-damping schemes, and their damping robustness are compared under both inductive and resonant grid impedances. Experimental results validate the effectiveness of the method.

    Sudha, L U; Baskaran, J; Elankurisil, S A

    2015-01-01

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

    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.

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    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

    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.

    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.

  6. Time-domain pulse propagation on a microstrip transmission line excited by a gap voltage source

    Science.gov (United States)

    Langston, William L.

    Time-domain pulse propagation on microstrip transmission lines excited by a finite-gap voltage source is investigated with special attention given to the dispersive effects associated with the individual components of the transmission-line current. The electromagnetic analysis is first developed in the frequency domain including material losses. Phase and attenuation constant results from the subsequent model show that, for structures that support a leaky mode, the leaky-mode loss is the dominant loss factor when it is physical. The frequency-domain results for total current show that the leaky mode causes severe signal loss and oscillations in the total current due to interference between the bound mode and the continuous spectrum. The time-domain analysis, an extension of the frequency-domain analysis using Fourier theory, is applied to three open and covered microstrip structures for two different pulses to show a broad range of dispersive effects. It is shown that for structures supporting a strong leaky mode there is significant distortion including broadening (and eventual splitting) of the pulse as it propagates and a loss of signal energy. Distortion early in time (near the leading edge of the pulse) is primarily due to the continuous spectrum but late-time distortion (near the lagging edge of the pulse) is primarily associated with the bound mode. When a leaky mode is strongly excited, the leaky-mode response makes up a large portion of the continuous-spectrum response and radiates energy as it propagates. It is also shown that for structures that support a leaky mode only at very high frequencies (relative to the frequency spectrum of the pulse), the distortion is almost exclusively due to the bound mode and hence is accounted for by CAD formulas based on the bound mode, when such are available.

  9. Modeling Hysteresis Effect in Three-Phase Relative Permeability

    Science.gov (United States)

    2014-12-01

    Simulation and fluid flow prediction of many petroleum enhanced oil recovery methods as well as environmental processes such as carbon dioxide (CO2) geological storage requires accurate modeling and determination of relative permeability under different saturation histories. Based on this critical need, there has been several different three-phase relative permeability models developed to predict the hysteresis effects in relative permeability, most of which requiring many different parameters which introduce extreme complexity to the models for practical purposes. In this work, we experimentally measured three-phase, water/oil/gas, relative permeability in a 1-m long water-wet sand pack, under several different flow histories. We measured the in-situ saturations along the sand pack using a CT scanner. We then determined the relative permeabilities directly from the measured in-situ saturations, using unsteady-state method. Based on our results, good estimation of residual saturations yields in excellent three-phase relative permeability estimations by just using the simple, standard relative permeability models such as, Saturation Weighted Interpolation (SWI), Corey's and Stones. Our results show that, the key parameter to model the hysteresis in three-phase relative permeability (effect of saturation history) is the residual saturations. Once the residual saturations were correctly determined for each specific saturation path, the standard relative permeability models can predict the three-phase relative permeabilities perfectly.

    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.

  11. 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.

    In order to reduce harmonics of input line current waveforms and improve its power factor, this paper introduced the improvement of slip energy recovery drives with voltage source inverter for a speed control of wound rotor induction motors. A boost chopper was utilized to connect the diode rectifier to direct current link voltage, which was composed of a capacitor and voltage source inverter type space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM). This scheme leads to the ability to adjust the speed of the motor by the duty cycle of the chopper. In order to control a speed to be constant when the load varies, the PI cascade controller was also introduced. The paper discussed the experimental set-up and subsequent results and discussion. The purpose of the paper was to demonstrate a reduction in the harmonics of input line current waveforms; improvement in the power factor of the drive with voltage source inverter; and a designed PI cascade controller for controlling a speed of motor, where step change loading and unloading transients. It was concluded that that the speed of the induction motor could be controlled at the desired speed. 10 refs., 2 tabs., 16 figs.

    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.

  19. Mixed Modulation Method of PWM Inverter by Considering Acceleration Torque and Voltage Saturation for Speed Servo System

    Science.gov (United States)

    Takahashi, Kenji; Ohishi, Kiyoshi; Kanmachi, Tosiyuki

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

    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.

The use of an armour increases the losses in armoured cables compared to unarmoured cables. In this paper a thorough state of the art analysis is conducted on armour losses in three-phase armoured submarine power cables. The analysis shows that the IEC 60287-1-1 standard overestimates the armour losses which lead to the installation of cables with excessive phase conductor cross section. This paper also presents an example of the potential economic benefits of having a better knowledge of the losses introduced by the armour.

    Previously published data of three-phase fluidization were correlated to develop a new empirical correlation for predicting bed voltage in gas-liquid-solid fluidized beds. The proposed correlation model, when used in conjunction with any suitable two-phase model for bed voltage, can serve as a correlation for bed voltage in both two- and three-phase fluidized beds. It describes the bed expansion and contraction phenomena observed during fluidization and is valid even as the superficial gas velocity approaches zero. A new criterion for quantifying the bed expansion and contraction phenomena based on this empirical model is derived and is also discussed in this paper. 19 refs., 3 figs., 4 tabs.

    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 des...

    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)

    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.

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, a new Simulink model for a neural network controlled PWM AC chopper fed single phase induction motor is proposed. Closed loop speed control is achieved using a neural network controller. To maintain a constant fluid flow with a variation in pressure head, drives like fan and pump are operated with closed loop speed control. The need to improve the quality and reliability of the drive circuit has increased because of the growing demand for improving the performance of motor drives. With the increased availability of MOSFET's and IGBT's, PWM converters can be used efficiently in low and medium power applications. From the simulation studies, it is seen that the PWM AC chopper has a better harmonic spectrum and lesser copper loss than the Phase controlled AC chopper. It is observed that the drive system with the proposed model produces better dynamic performance, reduced overshoot and fast transient response. .

    2014-03-01

    The present investigation is aimed at ultrasound assisted three phase partitioning (UATPP) of a fibrinolytic enzyme from Bacillus sphaericus MTCC 3672. Three phase partitioning integrates the concentration and partial purification step of downstream processing of a biomolecule. Three phase system is formed with simultaneous addition of ammonium sulfate to crude broth and followed by t-butanol. UATPP of a fibrinolytic enzyme was studied by varying different process parameters such as ammonium sulfate saturation concentration, pH, broth to t-butanol ratio, temperature, ultrasound frequency, ultrasonication power, and duty cycle. The optimized parameters yielding maximum purity of 16.15-fold of fibrinolytic enzyme with 65% recovery comprised of 80% ammonium sulfate saturation, pH 9, temperature 30 °C, broth to t-butanol ratio 0.5 (v/v), at 25 kHz frequency and 150 W ultrasonication power with 40% duty cycle for 5 min irradiation time. SDS PAGE analysis of partitioned enzyme shows partial purification with a molecular weight in the range of 55-70 kDa. Enhanced mass transfer of UATPP resulted in higher fold purity of fibrinolytic enzyme with reduced time of operation from 1 h to 5 min as compared to conventional TPP. Outcome of our findings highlighted the use of UATPP as an efficient biosepartion technique. PMID:24184008

    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 virtua...

    A traditional Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) has higher efficiency than a Current Voltage Source (CSI) due to the less conduction power loss. However, the reverse recovery of the free-wheeling diode limits the efficiency improvement for the silicon devices based hard-switching VSI. The traditional quasi-soft-switching inverter can alternate between VSI and CSI by using a proper control scheme and thereby reduce the power losses caused by the reverse recovery of the free-wheeling diode.

    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.

  2. Generic inertia emulation controller for multi-terminal voltage-source-converter high voltage direct current systems

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Zhu, Jiebei; Guerrero, Josep M.

    2014-01-01

    A generic Inertia Emulation Controller (INEC) scheme for Multi-Terminal Voltage-Source-Converter based HVDC (VSC-MTDC) systems is proposed and presented in this paper. The proposed INEC can be incorporated in any Grid-side Voltage-Source-Converter (GVSC) station, allowing the MTDC terminal to contribute an inertial response to connected AC systems during system disturbances, in a fashion similar to synchronous generators. The DC link capacitors within the MTDC are utilised by the INEC scheme to exchange stored energy with the AC system by varying the overall DC voltage level of the MTDC network within a safe and pre-defined range. A theoretical treatment of the INEC algorithm and its implementation and integration within a conventional VSC control system are presented, and the impact on the total DC capacitance required within the MTDC network to ensure that DC voltages vary within an acceptable range are discussed. The proposed INEC scheme is validated using a Matlab/Simulink model under various changes in demand and in response to AC network faults. The model incorporates a multi-machine AC power system connected to a MTDC transmission system with multiple converter-interfaced nodes. The effectiveness of the INEC in damping post-fault oscillations and in enhancing AC system frequency stability is also investigated. The system is shown to perform well and is attractive for providing a stable MTDC system that is capable of providing valuable support to the connected AC systems.

    2015-01-01

    Generation of an acoustic wave by two pump sound waves is studied in a three-phase marine sediment that consists of a solid frame and the pore water with air bubbles in it. To avoid shock-wave formation the interaction is considered in the frequency range where there is a significant amount of sound velocity dispersion. Nonlinear equations are obtained to describe the interaction of acoustic waves in the presence of air bubbles. An expression for the amplitude of the generated wave is obtained and numerical analysis of its dependence on distance and on the resonance frequency of bubbles is performed.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Starting from the conservation principles a nonconservative form of a system of 18 quasilinear partial differential equations describing the three-phase three-component flow is obtained. The flow is described using the three-velocity field approach. Each of the flow-fields consists of one inert and one noninert component. Full thermodynamical and mechanical nonequilibrium between the fields is modelled. The simplest possible concentration and entropy equations are obtained, without any simplifying assumptions. Also the definition of the Mach number, the critical mass flow rate, and the criticality condition for this physical system is obtained. (orig.)

    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.

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

    In this paper a new Zero-Voltage-Transition (ZVT) PWM switching cell is presented. The proposed switching cell is composed of the normal hard-switched PWM cell (consisting of one active switch and one passive switch), plus an auxiliary circuit (consisting of one active switch and some reactive components).

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.

  18. Inverter Output Filter Effect on PWM Motor Drives of a Flywheel Energy Storage System

    Science.gov (United States)

    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.

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The three-phase centrifuge technology discussed in this paper was developed by Neal Miller, president of Centech, Inc. The three-phase centrifuge is an excellent device for cleaning up oil field and refinery wastes which are typically composed of hydrocarbons, water, and solids. The technology is unique. It turns the waste into salable oil, reusable water, and landfill-able solids. No secondary waste is produced. The problem is that only the inventor can set up and run the equipment well enough to provide an optimal cleanup. Demand for this device has far exceeded a one man operation. There is now a need for several centrifuges to be operated at different locations at the same time. This has produced a demand for an intelligent control system, one that could replace a highly skilled operator, or at least supplement the skills of a less experienced operator. The control problem is ideally suited to fuzzy logic, since the centrifuge is a highly complicated machine operated entirely by the skill and experience of the operator. A fuzzy control system was designed for and used with the centrifuge

  20. Cellular automata approach to three-phase traffic theory

    CERN Document Server

    Kerner, B S; Wolf, D E; Kerner, Boris S.; Klenov, Sergey L.; Wolf, Dietrich E.

    2002-01-01

    The cellular automata (CA) approach to traffic modeling is extended to allow for spatially homogeneous steady state solutions that cover a two dimensional region in the flow-density plane. Hence these models fulfill a basic postulate of 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 the one of the leading vehicle. In the CA models presented, the modelling of the free and safe speeds, the slow-and-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 three-phase traffic theory [B.

  1. Three-phase CFD analytical modeling of blood flow.

    Jung, Jonghwun; Hassanein, Ahmed

    2008-01-01

    The behavior of blood cells in disturbed flow regions of arteries has significant relevance for understanding atherogenesis. However, their distribution with red blood cells (RBCs) and leukocytes is not so well studied and understood. Our three-phase computational fluid dynamics approach including plasma, RBCs, and leukocytes was used to numerically simulate the local hemodynamics in such a flow regime. This model has tracked the wall shear stress (WSS), phase distributions, and flow patterns for each phase in a concentrated suspension shear flow of blood. Unlike other computational approaches, this approach does not require dispersion coefficients as an input. The non-Newtonian viscosity model was applied to a wide physiological range of hematocrits, including low shear rates. The migration and segregation of blood cells in disturbed flow regions were computed, and the results compared favorably with available experimental data. The predicted higher leukocyte concentration was correlated with relatively low WSS near the stenosis having a high WSS. This behavior was attributed to flow-dependent interactions of the leukocytes with RBCs in pulsatile flow. This three-phase hemodynamic analysis may have application to vulnerable plaque formation in arteries with in vivo complex flow conditions. PMID:17244522

  2. Boosted PWM open loop control of hydraulic proportional valves

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper presents an innovative open loop control technique for direct single stage hydraulic proportional valves whose response rate is significantly higher than that obtained by standard open loop control techniques, even comparable to more costly commercial closed loop systems. Different from standard open loop techniques, which provide the coil with a constant current proportional to the target position, the control strategy proposed in this paper employs the peak and hold (P and H) technique, widely used in Diesel engine modern supply systems, to boost the duty cycle value of the pulse width modulation (PWM) signal for a short time, namely during the spool displacement, while maintaining a lower duty cycle for holding the spool in the required opening position. The developed 'boosted PWM' technique only requires a low cost microcontroller, such as a peripheral interface controller (PIC) equipped with a metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) power driver. The PWM parameters are calibrated as a function of the spool displacement so as to maximize the response rate without introducing overshoots: the collected data are stored in the PIC. Different valve opening procedures with step response have been compared to demonstrate the merits of the proposed boosted PWM technique. No overshoots have been registered. Moreover, the proposed method is characterized by a significantly higher response rate with respect to a standard open loop control, which approximately has the same cost. Similar experimental tests show that the proposed boosted PWM technique has a response rate even higher than that provided by the more costly commercial closed loop system mounted on the valve, and it produces no overshoots

    Teodorescu, Remus; Blaabjerg, Frede

    2004-01-01

    This paper is describing the recently introduced proportional-resonant (PR) controllers and their suitability for grid-connected converters current control. It is shown that the known shortcomings associated with PI controllers like steady - state error for single-phase converters and the need of decoupling for three-phase converters can be alleviated. Additionally, selective harmonic compensation is also possible with PR controllers. Suggested control-diagrams for three-phase grid converters and active filters are also presented. A practical application of PR current control for a photovoltaic (PV) inverter is also described.

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

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    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.

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

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    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

  6. Improved Passive-Damped LCL Filter to Enhance Stability in Grid-Connected Voltage-Source Converters

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Beres, Remus Narcis; Wang, Xiongfei

    2015-01-01

    This paper proposes an improved passive-damped LCL filter to be used as interface between the grid-connected voltage-source converters and the utility grid. The proposed filter replaces the LCL filter capacitor with a traditional C-type filter with the resonant circuit tuned in such a way that switching harmonics due to pulse width modulation are to be cancelled. Since the tuned circuit of the C-type filter suppresses the switching harmonics more effectively, the total inductance of the filter can be reduced. Additionally, the rating of the damping resistor is lower, compared with conventional passive-damped LCL filter. To verify the benefits of the proposed filter, a comparison with the conventional filter is made in terms of losses and ratings when both the filters are designed under the same condition.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A mathematical model of a transient three-dimensional three-phase three-component flow described by three-velocity fields in porous body is presented. A combination of separated mass and energy equations together with mixture momentum equations for the flow is used. The mixture equations are used in diffusion form with the assumption that the diffusion velocity can be calculated from empirical correlations. An analytical coupling between the governing equations is developed for calculation of the pressure field. The system is discretized semiimplicitly in 3D-cylindrical space and different solution methods for the algebraic problem are presented. Finally, numerical examples and comparisons with experimental data demonstrate that the method presented is a powerful tool for numerical multiphase flow simulation. (orig.)

    Acoustic wave front reversal is studied in a sandy marine sediment that contains air bubbles in its fluid fraction. The considered phase conjugation is a four-wave nonlinear parametric sound interaction process caused by nonlinear bubble oscillations which are known to be dominant in acoustic nonlinear interactions in three-phase marine sediments. Two various mechanisms of phase conjugation are studied. One of them is based on the stimulated Raman-type sound scattering on resonance bubble oscillations. The second one is associated with sound interactions with bubble oscillations which frequencies are far from resonance bubble frequencies. Nonlinear equations to solve the wave-front conjugation problem are derived, expressions for acoustic wave amplitudes with a reversed wave front are obtained and compared for various frequencies of the excited bubble oscillations.

  10. A NOVEL THREE PHASE UNITY POWER FACTOR CONVERTER

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    1998-03-01

    Full Text Available The proposed unity power factor converter system which is able to operate from a 150V three-phase supply whilst delivering the required 200V DC voltage has been built and tested. This circuit functions as a high power factor low harmonic rectifier based on the concept that the peak capacitor voltages are proportional to the line input currents. Hence the low frequency components of the capacitor voltages are also approximately proportional to the line input currents. The system can be designed to achieve nearly sinusoidal supply input currents, when operated with discontinuous resonant capacitor voltages Output power control is achieved by variations of the IGBTs switching frequency. The converter is therefore able to compensate for any changes in the load resistance. The proposed topology offers advantages, including: a relatively simple power, control and protection circuits, high power capability, and high converter efficiencies.

  11. Myositis ossificans and the three-phase bone scan

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Myositis ossificans circumscripta (or paraosteoarthropathy) in paraplegics has been a well known entity since its classic description in 1918 by Dejerine and Ceillier. The disease is characterized by ectopic bone formation, primarily occurring in the particular soft tissues of the hips and knees. Hypotheses concerning its origin have been proposed, but its etiology is still unknown. Myositis ossificans can occur after traumatic injury, but develops in paraplegics without apparent injury in the involved regions. Radionuclide techniques have been used in the evaluation of myositis ossificans, particularly with serial studies to stage the activity of the disease. The author reports a case of myositis ossificans in a paraplegic that emphasizes the benefit of the three-phase bone scan in the early diagnosis of this disorder

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.

    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.

    Three versions of a system for symmetrizing the load of a three phase grid which powers single phase induction furnaces or other similar types of consumers. The basic conditions for symmetry are: a direct sequence of voltage phases, an equality of the square root of 3/2 time the value of the coefficient of the load power ZO, an equality to the full resistance to load of ZO of the inductive resistance of the choke coil Ls. In this case the cited variant will be used. If with equal conditions the coefficient of power is less than or greater than the cited, the symmetry is provided by the circuits cited, respectively. Precise symmetry may be achieved through regulating the values of the inductive choke coils Ls and the capacity of the battery of capacitors Cs.

    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.

  16. Three-phase radionuclide bone imaging in sports medicine

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Three-phase radionuclide bone (TPB) imaging was performed on 238 patients with sports-related injuries. A wide variety of lesions was encountered, but the most frequent lesions seen were stress fractures of the lower part of the leg at the junction of the middle and distal thirds of the posterior tibial cortex (42 of 79 lesions). There were no differences in the type, location, or distribution of lesions between males and females or between competitive and noncompetitive athletes. In 110 cases, bone stress lesions were often diagnosed when radiographs were normal, whereas subacute or chronic soft-tissue abnormalities had few specific scintigraphic features. TPB imaging provides significant early diagnostic information about bone stress lesions. Normal examination results (53 cases) exclude underlying osseous pathologic conditions

  17. Mass transfer in three-phase fluidized beds

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The effects of superficial liquid and gas velocity, particle diameter, liquid viscosity, and column diameter on liquid dispersion (E/sub L) and mass transfer (K/sub L/a) in three-phase fluidized beds were investigated using a water--glycerol/oxygen--nitrogen (or oxygen--argon)/glass-bead system. Overall mass transfer coefficients were calculated based on plug flow, dispersed plug flow, and continuously stirred tank models. k/sub L/a was found to increase with gas velocity and particle diameter, but no correlation of K/sub L/a with liquid velocity was observed. At low liquid velocities, K/sub L/a was lower for the more viscous liquid; the reverse was true at high liquid flow rates. E/sub L/ increased rapidly for liquid flow rates at two to three times the minimum fluidization velocity

  19. Cellular automata approach to three-phase traffic theory

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The cellular automata (CA) approach to traffic modelling is extended to allow for spatially homogeneous steady state solutions that cover a two-dimensional region in the flow-density plane. Hence these models fulfil a basic postulate of a three-phase traffic theory proposed by Kerner. This is achieved by a synchronization distance, within which a vehicle always tries to adjust its speed to that of the vehicle in front. In the CA models presented, the modelling of the free and safe speeds, the slow-to-start rules as well as some contributions to noise are based on the ideas of the Nagel-Schreckenberg-type modelling. It is shown that the proposed CA models can be very transparent and still reproduce the two main types of congested patterns (the general pattern and the synchronized flow pattern) as well as their dependence on the flows near an on-ramp, in qualitative agreement with the recently developed continuum version of the three-phase traffic theory (Kerner B S and Klenov S L 2002 J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 35 L31 ). These features are qualitatively different from those in previously considered CA traffic models. The probability of the breakdown phenomenon (i.e. of the phase transition from free flow to synchronized flow) as function of the flow rate to the on-ramp and of the flow rate on the road upstream of the on-ramp is investigated. The capacity drops at the on-ramp which occur due to the formation of different congested patterns are calculated

    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.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    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.

    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.

    Full Text Available Knowledge of bubble-particle interaction is important in many industrial processes such as in flotation. While the collision (first interaction sub-process between bubbles and particles is influenced only by hydrodynamic forces, the bubble behaviour during the attachment (second sub-process is influenced both by hydrodynamic and surface forces. This work is focused on the study of the three-phase contact (TPC line expansion during bubble adhesion on hydrophobic surface and on its experimental and mathematical description. The experiments were carried out in pure water where mobile bubble surface is expected. The rising bubble was studied in dynamic arrangement, whereas the stationary bubble was analysed in static arrangement. The attachment process was recorded using a high-speed digital camera and evaluated using image analysis. The diameter of the expanding TPC line as well as the dynamic contact angle was determined. Two approaches - the hydrodynamic and the molecular-kinetic - were used for mathematical description of the TPC line expansion. According to our results, the hydrodynamic model is suitable for the description of the initial fast phase of the expansion. The molecular-kinetic model was assessed as appropriate for almost whole range of TPC expansion. Parameters of the model were evaluated and compared for both types of arrangement.

    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.

  6. Deterministic microscopic three-phase traffic flow models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Two different deterministic microscopic traffic flow models, which are in the context of the Kerner's there-phase traffic theory, are introduced. In an acceleration time delay model (ATD model), different time delays in driver acceleration associated with driver behaviour 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), vehicle speed adaptation occurs in synchronized flow depending on driving conditions. It is found that the ATD and SA models show spatiotemporal congested traffic patterns that are adequate with empirical results. In the ATD and SA models, the onset of congestion in free flow at a freeway bottleneck is associated with a first-order phase transition from free flow to synchronized flow; moving jams emerge spontaneously in synchronized flow only. Differences between the ATD and SA models are studied. A comparison of the ATD and SA models with stochastic models in the context of three-phase traffic theory is made. A critical discussion of earlier traffic flow theories and models based on the fundamental diagram approach is presented

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

    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 and reactive power flow, formulated as generalized equations for current reference calculation. A simple, but general, implementation is therefore achieved, where the control objective and the power flow characteristics can be selected according to the requirements of any particular application. Thus, the same control structure can be used to achieve for instance balanced sinusoidal currents or elimination of double frequency active power oscillations during unbalanced conditions. In case of voltage sags, current references corresponding to a specified active or reactive power flow might exceed the current capability of the converter. The limits for active and reactive power transfer during unbalanced conditions have therefore been analyzed, and generalized strategies for current reference calculation when operating under current limitations have been derived. The specified objectives for active and reactive power flow characteristics can therefore be maintained during unbalanced grid conditions, while the average active and reactive power flow is limited to keep the current references within safe values. All concepts and techniques proposed in this Thesis have been verified by simulations and laboratory experiments. The SOGI-based method for Virtual Flux estimation and the strategies for active and reactive power control with current limitation can also be easily adapted for a wide range of applications and can be combined with various types of inner loop control structures. Therefore, the proposed approach can potentially be used as a general basis for Virtual Flux-based voltage-sensor-less operation of VSCs under unbalanced grid voltage conditions.(Author)

    We present a method for measuring high resistances using one voltage source and one voltmeter. With this method, there exist two techniques. One is to measure a high resistance with a much lower resistance and the other is to cancel the leakage effect effectively using two nominally equal resistances without an auxiliary guarding apparatus. To demonstrate the method's validity, a 1 G? resistance was measured using the two techniques replacing a dummy 1 G? resistance as a leakage resistance; the measurement results agree well with the theoretical results within the measurement uncertainty of 3 × 10-6 (k = 2) level. We used the method to determine 10 M?, 1 G? and 1 T? resistances with an active-guard type and a T-type. The best expanded uncertainties at k = 2 from the results were estimated as 0.3 × 10-6, 0.8 × 10-6 and 20 × 10-6, respectively. We also show that while the expanded uncertainty of 70 × 10-6 is obtained using an 81/2 digit digital multimeter, it is improved to 20 × 10-6 using an electrometer with high-input resistance, low bias current and high resolution when the second technique is used to measure high resistances.

  9. Characteristics of temperature rise in variable inductor employing magnetorheological fluid driven by a high-frequency pulsed voltage source

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

    Mathe, Laszlo; Sera, Dezso

    2011-01-01

    In this paper a new low cost technique for PWM strategy implementation is presented. The proposed technique does not require dedicated hardware PWM units, thus offering higher flexibility of use. Furthermore, the aforementioned method eases the digital implementation of modern modulation methods like AZSPWM, NSPWM, or ACRPWM. By using a conventional PWM unit from a microcontroller, these modern modulation techniques are often difficult, or even impossible, to implement. The proposed method can be used to implement PWM strategies even for those microcontrollers which are not equipped with hardware PWM unit. The experimental results show that this new technique is suitable to replace traditional implementation methods with minimum computational overhead, with the benefit of high flexibility, lower cost and faster code development.

    2012-03-01

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

    Full Text Available Multilevel inverters has got more concern over conventional two level inverters because of their features like yielding output with low harmonics, output tending to sinusoidal, the voltage stress across each switching device is low. The diode clamped inverter is widely multilevel inverter configuration due to ease of operation when compared to other topologies.

  20. Spread Spectrum Modulation by Using Asymmetric-Carrier Random PWM

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Mathe, Laszlo; Lungeanu, Florin

    2012-01-01

    This paper presents a new fixed carrier frequency random PWM method, where a new type of carrier wave is proposed for modulation. Based on simulations and experimental measurements, it is shown that the spread effect of the discrete components from the motor current spectra and acoustic spectra is very effective and is independent from the modulation index. The flat motor current spectrum generates an acoustical noise close to the white noise, which improves the acoustical performance of the drive. The new carrier wave is easy to implement digitally, without employing any external circuits. The modulation method can be used in both open and closed loop motor control applications.

  1. Convection chimneys in three-phase magmas (Invited)

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rust, A.; Fowler, A. C.; McGuinness, M. J.; Mitchell, S.

    2010-12-01

    Lavas are three-phase mixtures of viscous liquid (silicate melt), vapour bubbles and solid crystals. The contrasting density and deformability of the phases can lead to complex flows and segregation features. Here we focus on the origin of vertical cylinders of vesicular (bubbly) magma that form in many basalt lava flows that have been inflated by the injection of molten lava below a solid crust. The very top and bottom of the lava flows cool quickly enough for bubbles to be quenched in place but in the hot interior, bubbles rise easily and collect below the crust. The rise of bubbles leaves a non-vesicular core; however, as the base cools and crystallizes, water concentrates in the residual melt, and new bubbles form in the mush, making the interstitial fluid (melt and bubbles) buoyant. Obstructed by crystals, the bubbles do not rise freely; rather, their growth causes segregation by pushing residual melt and bubbles out between the crystals. The bubbly residuum somehow rises through the lava in regularly-spaced vertical cylinders and then seems to spread laterally into vesicular sheets. The generally-accepted origin of the vesicular cylinders in lava flows is that bubbly residual fluid collects on the top of mush at the base of the lava and regularly-spaced bumps that become cylindrical conduits spontaneously grow from ambient noise once the buoyant layer thickness exceeds a critical value. However, our analogue experiments, combined with existing theory, suggest that such Rayleigh-Taylor instabilities are not the origin of the vesicular lava cylinders. An alternative explanation is ”mushy convection” where flow within a stationary crystallizing mush is driven by gradients in liquid density that are generated because some components are preferentially incorporated into the crystals leaving a buoyant residual liquid. Such mushy convection is known to focus flow in vertical “chimneys” devoid of crystals in mushy (crystal-rich) layers of sea ice and metal alloys. We present a theoretical and numerical analysis of mushy convection in lava as it cools from above and below. A mush layer grows upwards from the base of the flow and is overlain by crystal-poor lava. Rayleigh numbers for this crystal-poor magma indicate that it will convect vigorously, but since it is cooled from above and below, dense plumes of fluid will descend towards the lower unit, where they will pond, and deliver a conductive heat flux to the underlying mush. The model for convection within the mush itself assumes a simplified phase diagram for the magma, that the pore liquid and gas move homogeneously through the pore space of the mush, and also that the pressure in the liquid and gas phases are equal. One difference between classic mushy convection in metal alloys and mushy convection in lava, is that in the latter, the residual melt contains bubbles. The much lower bulk density of the bubbly fluid will help drive convection, although bubbles can reduce the effective permeability of the mush if bubbles are trapped in constrictions due to capillary stress.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    Full Text Available Multilevel inverters offer several advantages compared to the conventional 3-phase bridge inverter in terms of lower dv/dt stresses, lower electromagnetic compatibility, smaller rating and better output features. This project presents a 9-level diode Clamped inverter using Sinusoidal pulse width Modulation techniques as the control strategies. The algorithm has been developed within the carrier-based PWM framework to facilitate its implementation in diode clamped converters with three or more levels. A simulation model of 9-level DCMI has been designed and developed. The results obtained from the simulation model have been compared with the 3-level and 5-level diode clamped inverter. By increasing the level of inverter, effective balancing in line voltage and reduced THD is obtained.

    We systematically carried out oil-gas-water three-phase flow experiments for measuring the time series of flow signals. We first investigate flow pattern behaviors from the energy and frequency point of view and find that different flow patterns exhibit different flow behaviors. In order to quantitatively characterize dynamic behaviors underlying different oil-gas-water three-phase flow patterns, we infer and analyze visibility graphs (complex networks) from signals measured under different flow conditions. The results indicate that the combination parameters of network degree are sensitive to the transition among different flow patterns, which can be used to distinguish different flow patterns and quantitatively characterize nonlinear dynamics of the three-phase flow. In this regard, visibility graph can be a useful tool for characterizing the nonlinear dynamic behaviors underlying different oil-gas-water three-phase flow patterns.

    When designing an inverter, an engineer often needs to select and predict the efficiency beforehand. For the standard inverters, plenty of researches are analyzing the power losses and also many software tools are being used for efficiency calculation. In this paper, the efficiency calculation for non-conventional inverters with special shoot-through state is introduced and illustrated through the analysis on a special two-level three-phase quasi-soft-switching inverter. Efficiency comparison between the classical two-stage two-level three-phase inverter and the two-level three-phase quasi-soft-switching inverter is carried out. A 10 kW/380 V prototype is constructed to verify the analysis. The experimental results show that the efficiency of the new inverter is higher than that of the traditional two-stage two- level three-phase inverter.

    Full Text Available Variable frequency drives are used to provide reliable dynamic systems and significant reduction in usage of energy and costs of the induction motors. Modeling and control of faulty or an unbalanced three-phase induction motor is obviously different from healthy three-phase induction motor. Using conventional vector control techniques such as Field-Oriented Control (FOC for faulty three-phase induction motor, results in a significant torque and speed oscillation. This research presented a novel method for vector control of three-phase induction motor under fault condition (two-phase open circuit fault. The proposed method for vector control of faulty machine is based on rotor FOC method. A comparison between conventional and modified controller shows that the modified controller has been significantly reduced the torque and speed oscillations.

  19. Hybrid Pwm Switching Strategy for a Three-Level Inverter Fed Induction Motor Drive with Open-End Windings

    Science.gov (United States)

    Srinivas, S.; Ramachandrasekhar, K.

    2010-06-01

    A dual two-level inverter fed induction motor with open-end windings is capable of generating a three-level output voltage. Several, sine-triangle and space vector pulse width modulation (PWM) switching strategies are presented for the dual-inverter scheme either using space-vector or carrier-based implementation. In this paper, a hybrid PWM switching strategy for the dual-inverter scheme is proposed employing sine-triangle PWM (SPWM) and space vector PWM (SVPWM) for the individual inverters. SPWM is theoretically analyzed and space vector based implementation of SPWM is presented using a simple offset-time concept. This is exploited to implement the hybrid PWM switching strategy for the dual two-level inverter. The implementation of the hybrid PWM switching strategy proposed in this paper do not require any look-up tables, the switching is totally automatic obviating the time-consuming task of sector identification. The implementation of the hybrid PWM scheme requires only the three instantaneous phase reference voltages corresponding to the reference space vector. The third harmonic component in the voltage appearing across the motor phase windings in the induction motor is significantly reduced (by 50%) with the use of the proposed hybrid PWM scheme as compared to the use of the PWM scheme presented earlier. Also, the percentage weighted total harmonic distortion (%WTHD) of the output voltage is significantly reduced in the entire range of speed of the induction motor driven by the dual-inverter scheme.

    Lindena, S. J.

    1976-01-01

    A breadboard design of a single-phase inverter with sinusoidal output voltage for a three-phase power generation and distribution system was developed. The three-phase system consists of three single-phase inverters, whose output voltages are connected in a delta configuration. Upon failure of one inverter the two remaining inverters will continue to deliver three-phase power. Parallel redundancy as offered by two three-phase inverters is substituted by one three-phase inverter assembly with high savings in volume, weight, components count and complexity, and a considerable increase in reliability. The following requirements must be met: (1) Each single-phase, current-fed inverter must be capable of being synchronized to a three-phase reference system such that its output voltage remains phaselocked to its respective reference voltage. (2) Each single-phase, current-fed inverter must be capable of accepting leading and lagging power factors over a range from -0.7 through 1 to +0.7.

  4. Asymmetrical Six-Phase Space Vector Pwm Scheme

    2014-05-01

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

The imaging were acquired simultaneously from both anterior and posterior views, after a bolus injection of 1110 MBq technetium-99m-labelled methylene diphosphonate (MDP), blood phase contains 20 frame sand 3 seconds per frame, blood pool phase contains 5 frames and 1 minute per frame, delayed phase was performed 2.5 hour later. According to the results of three-phase bone scan, the patients were divided into 2 groups: normal and abnormal groups. The abnormal group includes early phase positive,delay positive and all three phase positive sets. The comparing among the 3 sets were analyzed by chi-square test and other statistic means.Results: There were 54 patients who had suffered lung cancer, breast cancer and other cancer,involved in this study, 34 males and 20 females, ranged age 17 to 88 years, were normal in 15 cases,positive in 22 cases, the results in delayed phase were positive in 9 cases, blood flow and blood pool phase showed blood flow changes in 4 cases and soft tissue tumors were seen in 4 cases. Three phase bone scan was more sensitive than delayed whole body bone scan in detecting the abnormal sites (p0.05) The sensitivity of detecting tumors in blood flow and blood pool phase,delayed phase were respectively lower than in three phase bone scan (p<0.001).Conclusion: It is more sensitivity of detecting tumor lesions in three phase bone scan than in delayed phase whole body bone scan and the changes of blood flow and soft tissue can be seen in three phase bone scan. So it is more suitable way to improve the sensitivity of detecting abnormal sites in three-phase bone scan. (authors)

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

    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.

  8. The semiquantitative three-phase bone scintigraphy on hemiplegic patients with earlier complex regional pain syndrome

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Objective: To investigate the difference between the early phases and delay phase of three-phase bone scintigraphy on hemiplegic patients with earlier complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Methods: Twenty-nine stroke patients with hemiplegia complicating CRPS received three-phase bone scintigraphy after intravenous injection of 99Tcm-methylene diphosphonate (MDP). The region of interest (ROI) technique was used to obtain the radioactive counts of involved joints and contralateral sites on wrists, metacarpophalangeal, proximal interphalangeal and distal interphalangeal joints. The total counts of these four sites in each patient were then obtained and the total uptake ratios of involved joints/contralateral joints for each phase were calculated to compare the difference among the three phases. Wilcoxon test and ANOVA were used in data analyses. Results: The involved joints of hemiplegic side displayed higher tracer uptake. There were significant differences of the radioactive counts between involved joints and uninvolved ones in the perfusion, pool and delay phase (Wilcoxon test, Z: -4.73 to -2.10, P<0.05). There was no significant difference of total uptake ratios of involved joints/contralateral joints among the three phases (ANOVA, F = 0. 807, P < 0.05). Conclusions: Due to higher bone seeking agent accumulation on three-phase bone scintigraphy, both early phases and delay phase imaging showed similar value in stroke patients with hemiplegia complicating earlier CRPS.

    Full Text Available This work deals with the problems of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS based on the single-phase to three-phase converters built in two stages: an input bridge rectifier and an output three phase inverter. The two blocks are joined by a continuous intermediate bus. The objective of control is threefold: i power factor correction “PFC”, ii generating a symmetrical three-phase system at the output even if the load is unknown, iii regulating the DC bus voltage. The synthesis of controllers has been reached by two nonlinear techniques that are the sliding mode and adaptive backstepping control.

  13. Imaging phase holdup distribution of three phase flow systems using dual source gamma ray tomography

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Full text: Multiphase reaction and process systems are used in abundance in the chemical and biochemical industry. Tomography has been successfully employed to visualize the hydrodynamics of multiphase systems. Most of the tomography methods (gamma ray, x-ray and electrical capacitance and resistance) have been successfully implemented for two phase dynamic systems. However, a significant number of chemical and biochemical systems consists of dynamic three phases. Research effort directed towards the development of tomography techniques to image such dynamic system has met with partial successes for specific systems with applicability to limited operating conditions. A dual source tomography scanner has been developed that uses the 661 keV and 1332 keV photo peaks from the 137Cs and 60Co for imaging three phase systems. A new approach has been developed and applied that uses the polyenergetic Alternating Minimization (A-M) algorithm, developed by O'Sullivan and Benac (2007), for imaging the holdup distribution in three phases' dynamic systems. The new approach avoids the traditional post image processing approach used to determine the holdup distribution where the attenuation images of the mixed flow obtained from gamma ray photons of two different energies are used to determine the holdup of three phases. In this approach the holdup images are directly reconstructed from the gamma ray transmission data. The dual source gamma ray tomography scanner and the algorithm were validated using a three phase phantom. Based in the validation, three phase holdup studies we carried out in slurry bubble column containing gas liquid and solid phases in a dynamic state using the dual energy gamma ray tomography. The key results of the holdup distribution studies in the slurry bubble column along with the validation of the dual source gamma ray tomography system would be presented and discussed

    We investigate the dynamic characteristics of oil—gas—water three-phase flow in terms of chaotic attractor comparison. In particular, we extract a statistic to characterize the dynamical difference in attractor probability distribution. We first take time series from Logistic chaotic system with different parameters as examples to demonstrate the effectiveness of the method. Then we use this method to investigate the experimental signals from oil—gas—water three-phase flow. The results indicate that the extracted statistic is very sensitive to the change of flow parameters and can gain a quantitatively insight into the dynamic characteristics of different flow patterns.

    Washington, Jamie G.; Atkinson, Glynn J.

    2012-01-01

    This paper discusses three-phase topologies for modulated pole machines (MPMs). The authors introduce a new threephase topology, which takes advantage of mutual flux paths; this is analyzed using 3-D finite-element methods and compared to a three-phase topology using three single-phase units stacked axially. The results show that the new “combined-phase MPM” exhibits a greater torque density, while offering a reduction in the number of components. The results obtained from two prototypes are also presented to verify the concept; the results show that the “combined-phase” machine could provide both performance and constructional benefits over prior MPM topologies.

    Burlacu, Paul Dan; Mathe, Laszlo

    2014-01-01

    The half-bridge modular multilevel converter has proven itself to be a suitable solution for HVDC application. In order to achieve high modularity and fault tolerance, distributed control strategy is one possible solution and is discussed in this paper. When distributed control strategy is used, there is a central controller and a local controller in each sub-module (SM). A problem appears when implementing the modulation using this type of control strategy; this is the lack of synchronization between the internal clocks of the different submodules controllers of the MMC. This will cause a drift between the PWM outputs of each sub-module increasing the total harmonic distortion of the output voltage. This paper presents a solution to synchronize the PWM outputs of the MMC submodules using EtherCAT communication protocol focusing on phase shifted PWM modulation technique.

  4. 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.

  5. A New Method to Implement Resampled Uniform PWM Suitable for Distributed Control of Modular Multilevel Converters

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Huang, Shaojun; Mathe, Laszlo

    2013-01-01

    Two existing methods to implement resampling modulation technique for modular multilevel converter (MMC) (the sampling frequency is a multiple of the carrier frequency) are: the software solution (using a microcontroller) and the hardware solution (using FPGA). The former has a certain level of inaccuracy in terms of switching instant, while the latter is inflexible with higher cost. In order to overcome these drawbacks, this paper proposes an alternative solution, which uses high frequency saw-tooth carrier and two independent comparators, usually available in microcontrollers, to create the proper switching instances needed for the resampling modulation technique. The software implementation of the proposed phase shifted PWM (PS-PWM) method, and its application in a distributed control system for MMC, are fully discussed in this paper. Simulation and experiment results show that the proposed solution can realize the resampled uniform PWM and provide high effective sampling frequency and low time delay, which is critical for the distributed control of MMC.

    Full Text Available This paper presents the comparison of unipolar multicarrier Pulse Width Modulation (PWM techniques for the Flying Capacitor Multi Level Inverter (FCMLI. Due to switch combination redundancies, there are certain degrees of freedom to generate the five level AC output voltage. This paper presents the use of Control Freedom Degree (CFD combination. The effectiveness of the PWM strategies developed using CFD are demonstrated by simulation and experimentation. The results indicate that the multilevel inverter triggered by the developed USHPWM strategy exhibits reduced harmonics.

    Piyarat, Wekin; Kinnares, Vijit

    This paper presents a performance evaluation and a simple speed control method of an asymmetrical parameter type two-phase induction motor drive using a three-leg VSI (Voltage Source Inverter). The two-phase induction motor is adapted from an existing single-phase induction motor resulting in impedance unbalance between main and auxiliary windings. The unbalanced two-phase inverter outputs with orthogonal displacement based on a SPWM (Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation) method are controlled with appropriate amplitudes for improving the motor performance. Dynamic simulation of the proposed drive system is given. A simple speed controller based on a slip regulation method is designed. The overall system is implemented on a DSP (Digital Signal Processor) board. The validity of the proposed system is verified by simulation and experimental results.

    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.

En general, con este proposito se han utilizado transformadores especiales de voltaje que por ser de importacion son muy costosos; ademas, no existe un criterio definido de seleccion que permita suministrar a la fuente de voltaje la corriente recomendada por el IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission).

    This paper presents a new control method entitled direct power control (DPC) for shunt active power filter (APF), which is applied to eliminate line current harmonics and compensate reactive power. Its main goal is to rebuild active and reactive source powers to be compared to references values using hysteresis control. The active power reference is issue of DC-side of inverter and reactive power reference is set to zero for unity power factor. The outputs of hysteresis controllers associated with a switching table, control the instantaneous active and reactive power by selecting the optimum switching state of the voltage source inverter (VSI). A theoretical analysis with a complete simulation of the system and experimental results are presented to prove the excellent performance of the proposed technique. (author)

    In order to dim LEDs the pulse width modulation (PWM) or amplitude modulation (AM) dimming scheme is typically used. Previous studies show that these dimming schemes can have opposite effects on diodes peak wavelength shift. An experimental study was conducted to test the behavior of InGaN diodes and phosphor-converted white diodes under hybrid PWM/AM modulation. Feed forward control schemes that provide stable peak wavelength position during dimming and the ability to compensate the thermally induced color shifts and the decrease of the luminous flux are investigated.

    Modular Multilevel Converters (MMC) are the solution of preference in HVDC applications due to modularity, scalability, low losses and low filtering requirement. Carrier-based (PWM) and carrier-less (nearest level control) modulation can be applied. By using advanced sorting methods focusing on keeping the capacitor voltage ripple under some limit, unnecessary switching events are eliminated leading to reduced switching losses. This paper presents a comparison between the steady-state performances in terms of output voltage THD and equivalent switching frequency of the Phase Shifted Carrier PWM and NLC plus sorting methods.

    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.

    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 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

    Recently, a new family of AC-AC converters has been proposed for AC power conditioning. These converters are solid-state function equivalent to transformers with a continuously variable transformation ratio. Operating with the principle of pulse width modulated (PWM) control using gate turn-off switching devices like IGBTs have been shown to have significant performance advantages compared to older generation of thyristor based phase controlled converters. Although various techniques for realizing AC-AC power control using PWM control have been proposed in the past, few have seen wide application. This is seen to be primarily due to the complexity of the bi-directional switch requirements. In this paper, transient analysis and modeling of PWM AC-AC voltage converters with reduced number of uni-directional switches are developed and experimentally verified. It has been demonstrated that PWM AC-AC converters allow for the line current harmonics to be readily and economically filtered out, and for the load current harmonics to be almost negligible. Switching-to-supply frequency ratio plays an important role in terms of harmonic generation, distortion factor, distribution and control, through a switching frequency, in excess of several hundred hertz has almost negligible effect on the performance parameters. The developed transient modeling and its solution procedure are experimentally verified. Measured, simulated and predicted waveforms using the proposed model are shown to be very close and the model is proved to be efficient and accurate. (author)

The implementation is by using NPC (Neutral point controlling clamping. The input voltage is given to all three phases is 55 volt each and the output boost voltage we get up to 600volt. The final output is due to the two lower outputs at two capacitors and one common output (as we say three levels of rectifier. The voltage across these two capacitors (lower levels is about 300volt. And hence we are getting a common output, at third level of 600volt

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    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

    Eliminating the leakage current is one of the most important issues for transformerless three phase photovoltaic (PV) systems. In this paper, the leakage current elimination of a three-phase four-leg PV inverter is investigated. With the common mode loop model established, the generation mechanism of the leakage current is clearly identified. Different typical carrier-based modulation methods and their corresponding common mode voltages are discussed. A new modulation strategy with Boolean logic function is proposed to achieve the constant common mode voltage for the leakage current reduction. Finally the different modulation methods are implemented and tested on the TMS320F28335 DSP +XC3S400 FPGA digital control platform. The experimental results verify the effectiveness of the proposed solution.

    Electric motor-driven systems consume considerable amount of the global electricity. Majority of three-phase motor drives are equipped with conventional diode rectifier and passive harmonic mitigation, being witnessed as the main source in generating input current harmonics. While many active harmonic mitigation methods have been developed over the years, the total cost and complexity has become the main obstacle in employing prior-art methods for motor drive systems. This paper presents a novel current modulation method based on the electronic inductor concept for three-phase ac-dc systems to reduce input current harmonics. The obtained results at simulation and experimental levels confirm the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

    The three-phase interline described by a statistical continuum limit (i.e. quasi-boundary) has been postulated to gain a deeper insight into the reduction of CeO2 to CeO1.940 in a LiCl-KCl eutectic melt. Fabrication of a CeO2 superstructure by a condensed-phase method provided a CeO2 (111) surface at the nanoscale, which allowed the three-phase interline to be identified given previously reported quantum confinement effects in quasi-stoichiometric CeO2 nanoparticles. Also, the CeO2 superstructure displays the same crystal lattice planes as a bulk CeO2 grain but the triply degenerate Raman-active peak of the grain is higher by a factor of ~ 2.5 with a wider full width at half maximum.

    Full Text Available In this paper a concept of generalized theory of instantaneous imaginary power is proposed for a three-phase four-wire system. Unlike instantaneous reactive power theory in which a complexmathematical transformation is used for controlling action of shunt active power filters. The proposed control strategy is simple and further to reduced its complexity the line current vector is decomposed into two orthogonal components without mathematical transformations. The developed control strategy has been tested for three-phase four-wire system feeding non-linear load. The obtained results show satisfactory performance for a number of actual system conditions such as load changing of non-linear load. The THD (total harmonic distortion on supply side with shunt active power filter complies with IEEE harmonic standard, which validates the satisfactory implementation of proposed theory.

    Full Text Available The dynamic modelling principles for typical catalytic three-phase reactors, batch autoclaves and fixed (trickle) beds were described. The models consist of balance equations for the catalyst particles as well as for the bulk phases of gas and liquid. Rate equations, transport models and mass balanc [...] es were coupled to generalized heterogeneous models which were solved with respect to time and space with algorithms suitable for stiff differential equations. The aspects of numerical solution strategies were discussed and the procedure was illustrated with three case studies: hydrogenation of aromatics, hydrogenation of aldehydes and oxidation of ferrosulphate. The case studies revealed the importance of mass transfer resistance inside the catalyst pallets as well as the dynamics of the different phases being present in the reactor. Reliable three-phase reactor simulation and scale-up should be based on dynamic heterogeneous models.

    Full Text Available This work reports a novel approach where three phase partitioning (TPP was combined with microwave for extraction of mangiferin from leaves of Mangifera indica. Soxhlet extraction was used as reference method, which yielded 57 mg/g in 5 h. Under optimal conditions such as microwave irradiation time 5 min, ammonium sulphate concentration 40% w/v, power 272 W, solute to solvent ratio 1:20, slurry to t-butanol ratio 1:1, soaking time 5 min and duty cycle 50%, the mangiferin yield obtained was 54 mg/g by microwave assisted three phase partitioning extraction (MTPP. Thus extraction method developed resulted into higher extraction yield in a shorter span, thereby making it an interesting alternative prior to down-stream processing.

    Three phase partitioning (TPP), a technique used in protein purification has been evaluated, for extraction of oil from three different plant sources viz: mango kernel, soybean and rice bran. The process consists of simultaneous addition of t-butanol (1:1, v/v) and ammonium sulphate (w/v) to a crude preparation/slurry. Under optimized condition, the protein appears as an interfacial precipitate between upper t-butanol containing oil and lower aqueous phase. Pretreatment of the slurries with a commercial enzyme preparation of proteases, Protizyme {sup TM}, followed by three phase partitioning resulted in 98%, 86% and 79% (w/w) oil yields in case of soybean, rice bran and mango kernel, respectively. The efficiency of the present technique is comparable to solvent extraction with an added advantage of being less time consuming and using t-butanol which is a safer solvent as compared to n-hexane used in conventional oil extraction process.

  17. Voltage unbalance mitigation in LV networks using three-phase PV systems

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Garcia Bajo, Cristina; Hashemi Toghroljerdi, Seyedmostafa

    2015-01-01

    In this paper a new method is proposed to mitigate voltage unbalance caused by single-phase solar inverters in low voltage (LV) networks. The method is based on uneven reactive power absorption and injection by three-phase solar inverters. Independent control of each phase is performed to achieve this uneven injection. The average values of phase voltages at the connection points of the photovoltaic (PV) inverters are used as the references for the balancing algorithm. Voltage unbalance mitigation is achieved by use of this method in different scenarios with variable three-phase and single-phase inverters penetration in a realistic LV grid. In addition, the overvoltage is reduced by using this method.

    2010-07-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents a new soft switched topology for losses reduction in a three-phase four-wire shunt active power filter (SAPF. The soft-switching technique not only offers a reduction in switching loss and thermal requirement, but also allows the possibility of high frequency and snubberless operation. Improved circuit performance and efficiency as well as reduction of EMI emission can be achieved. The resonant dc link inverter with low voltage stress is used for power converter of a three-phase four-wire shunt active power filter. It is assumed that the active power filter is connected to a load that can be unbalanced and may also draw harmonic currents. The p-q theory is used for controlling the SAPF. The proposed topology and operation principle of the control method is discussed in detail, finally the feasibility of such a scheme is demonstrated through simulation studies.

    Full Text Available Abstract:This paper presents a dynamic d-q axis model of three- phase asynchronous motor in synchronously rotating frame. The systems of differential equations representing the dynamic state behaviours of the machine as developed are implemented in MATLAB/SIMULINK. The effects of the stepped sequence of mechanical loading on the motor output variables namely: three-phase stator currents (ia, ib and ic, electromechanical torque and rotor speed, d-q stator and rotor currents (iqs, ids, iqr and idr, d-q voltages (vqs and vds are examined. The results obtained clearly show the elegance of the d-q axis transformation theory in machine modelling and the inherent limitations of the direct-on-line starting of 3-hp and 2250-hp asynchronous motors.
