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

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

    Yamada, Hiroaki; Tanaka, Toshihiko; Funabiki, Shigeyuki

    This paper proposes a novel method of suppressing the inrush current of transformers. A small-rated voltage-source PWM converter is connected in series to the transformers through a matching transformer. As the connected PWM converter performs a resistor for the source current, no inrush phenomena occurs. The required-ratings of the PWM converter, which performs the damping resistor for the inrush phenomena, is one-four-hundredth as compared to that of the main transformers in single-phase circuits. In three-phase circuits, it is one-nine-hundredth. The basic principle of the proposed method is discussed. Digital computer simulation is implemented to confirm the validity and excellent practicability of the proposed method using the PSCAD/EMTDC. A prototype experimental-model is constructed and tested. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method can perfectly suppress the inrush phenomena.

  17. Border Collision of Three-Phase Voltage-Source Inverter System with Interacting Loads

    Science.gov (United States)

    Li, Zhen; Liu, Bin; Li, Yining; Wong, Siu-Chung; Liu, Xiangdong; Huang, Yuehui

    As a commercial interface, three-phase voltage-source inverters (VSI) are commonly equipped for energy conversion to export DC power from most distributed generation (DG) to the AC utility. Not only do voltage-source converters take charge of converting the power to the loads but support the grid voltage at the point of common connection (PCC) as well, which is dependent on the condition of the grid-connected loads. This paper explores the border collision and its interacting mechanism among the VSI, resistive interacting loads and grids, which manifests as the alternating emergence of the inverting and rectifying operations, where the normal operation is terminated and a new one is assumed. Their mutual effect on the power quality under investigation will cause the circuital stability issue and further deteriorate the voltage regulation capability of VSI by dramatically raising the grid voltage harmonics. It is found in a design-oriented view that the border collision operation will be induced within the unsuitable parameter space with respect to transmission lines of AC grid, resistive loads and internal resistance of VSI. The physical phenomenon is also identified by the theoretical analysis. With numerical simulations for various circuit conditions, the corresponding bifurcation boundaries are collected, where the stability of the system is lost via border collision.

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

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mohd. Arif Khan

    2012-03-01

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

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

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gabriele Grandi

    2013-08-01

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

  3. 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

    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. Due to continuous outgassing, the properties of the electrolytic capacitor deteriorate gradually (as time goes by). Hence, the capacitor is the major factor limiting the lifetime of the inverter systems. The aim of this work is to reduce the dc link capacitor size, as it means reduction of the cost and the volume of the converter/inverter systems. The work consists of 8 chapters: Chapter one illustrate the historical overview for the ac/dc/ac fed induction motor drive systems. It describes the benefits of the integrated PWM converter/inverter fed induction motor drive. It classified the integrated PWM converter/inverter systems into two types independent and dependent systems. It demonstrates some ideas for the control algorithms of these types of integrated systems. Chapter two introduces the mathematical model for the PWM converter. It explains the space vector PWM (SVPWM) method for

    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.

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

    2016-01-01

    In order to reduce size and cost, high-order passive filters are generally preferred in power converters to cancel out high frequency harmonics caused by pulse width modulation. However, the filter resonance peaks may require the use of passive dampers to stabilize the interactions between the load...... and source impedances. Furthermore, the stabilizing effect is more difficult to be guaranteed for cost-optimized filters, which are characterized by low inductance and high capacitance passive components. In this paper, several passive filter topologies used to interface voltage source converters...... with the utility grid are reviewed, and evaluated in terms of damping capability, stored energy in the passive components and power loss in the damping circuit. Additionally, the influences of different switching frequencies of power converters on the passive filter design are also discussed in the range of 1-15 k...

    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.

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

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    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.

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

    Yamada, Hiroaki; Tanaka, Toshihiko; Funabiki, Shigeyuki

    This paper proposes a new inrush current suppressor using a series-connected small-rated PWM converter for a transformer. The PWM converter is directly connected in series between the source and transformer without a matching transformer. The inrush phenomena of the matching transformer, thus, can be avoided. The control gain and required-ratings of the series-connected small-rated PWM converter is discussed in detail. The capacity of the dc capacitor of the PWM converter is also discussed considering the active power flows into the PWM converter. The PSCAD/EMTDC is used to verify the validity of the proposed inrush current suppressor. A prototype experimental model is constructed and tested. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed suppressor can perfectly overcome the inrush phenomena of transformers.

    2005-01-01

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

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

    To improve the DC bus voltage utilization of five-phase voltage source inverter (VSI) and reduce the harmonic component of output phase voltages, a space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) algorithm of five-phase VSI based on adjacent four voltage vectors was proposed. According to the value of modulation index, the modulation range could be divided into sine modulation region and non-sine modulation region. In sine modulation region, the output phase voltages are standard sine waves without any harmonic component through allocating the action time of space vector appropriately.

    2016-05-01

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

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

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    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.

    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.

    Full Text Available A lot of topologies of pulse-width modulated (PWM-AC controllers for single-phase and three-phase systems are proposed up to date. PWM-AC controllers have important advantages compared with the phase-controlled AC controllers using thyristors and triacs. The PWM-AC controller has sinusoidal current waveforms, smaller THD values, better power factor, faster dynamics, and smaller input/output filter. This article presents a novel control technique for application to PWM-AC controllers with ability of generating fewer harmonics. In the proposed control method, both the traditional AC voltage controllers and the PWM-AC controllers are combined; and smaller THD values are obtained. Thus, the harmonic pollution in the power system will be reduced; and consequently, the power quality will be increased. For this purpose, computer simulations are performed in order to investigate the proposed controller performance. The obtained results are compared with the conventional PWM-AC controller.

    Full Text Available Memristor provides nonlinear response in the current-voltage characteristic and the memristance is modulated using an external voltage source. We point out by solving nonlinear equations that an optimal condition of the external voltage source exists for maximizing the memristance in such modulation scheme. We introduce a linear function to describe the nonlinear time response and derive an important design guideline; a constant ratio of the frequency to the amplitude of the external voltage source maximizes the memristance. The analysis completely accounts for the memristance behavior.

  8. The Digital Simulation of Synchronous Motors Fed by Voltage-Source Inverters Over Wide Speed and Frequency Ranges

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rowihal, Said Soliman

    Both voltage-source and current-source inverters are widely used for supplying three-phase power to induction motor drives, each having their advantages and disadvantages. For high power drives and applications requiring accurate speed and tracking coordination, the synchronous motors are the optimum choice. For constant speed applications of synchronous motor drives, current-source inverters tend to be favored as the motor can usually be operated in the overexcited leading power factor region, thus providing the inverter with sufficient electro-motive force to allow natural commutation. Generally speaking low speed operation of synchronous motors is not satisfactory from naturally commutated current-source inverters. To provide a dynamic range of speed and frequency would require expensive control circuitry and complicates the performance of the drive. The advantage of the voltage-source inverter for the wide range of speed and frequency control herein envisaged is that forced commutation is employed throughout the range and the commutating circuits have been well developed and established. On balance, voltage-source inverters represent a viable compromise for variable-speed three -phase synchronous motor drives including start-up. To investigate the transient response of the voltage -source fed-synchronous motor drives, a digital computer program is developed. The program is based on two models --machine model and inverter model. The machine is represented by a detailed two-axis model which includes the effects due to saliency, damper windings, and machine resistances. The inverter model represents a forced-commutated voltage-source inverter assuming ideal switching devices (thyristors and diodes). To cope with the wide variations of power factor during start-up, a thyristor with a reverse connected parallel diode are integrated as a bidirectional switch. The digital program provides the machine variables of interest (phase currents, field current, damper winding

    2010-06-01

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

    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.

    Modern power converters utilize pulse-width modulation (PWM) voltage control. Output voltage high frequency harmonics induce additional electrical machine loss. As there is no accepted PWM loss theory, PWM loss is usually accounted for by machine power de-rating. In-depth understanding of PWM loss mechanisms is important for predicting losses and improving energy efficiency of electrical machines. In this paper we suggest a new time domain PWM loss approach. It assumes that PWM eddy current iron loss dominates over PWM copper and hysteresis iron losses and comprises theoretical normalized PWM loss evaluation and experimental characterization. Once maximal PWM loss is measured, it can be scaled for an arbitrary operating point using simple formula. Theoretical results are shown to be in a good agreement with a published experimental data.

    In this study, the most common multilevel inverter topologies and control schemes have been reviewed. Multilevel inverter topologies (MLIs) are increasingly being used in medium and high power applications due to their many advantages such as low power dissipation on power switches, low harmonic contents and low electromagnetic interference (EMI) outputs. The selected switching technique to control the inverter will also have an effective role on harmonic elimination while generating the ideal output voltage. Intensive studies have been performed on carrier-based, sinusoidal, space vector and sigma delta PWM methods in open loop control of inverters. The selection of topology and control techniques may vary according to power demands of inverter. This paper and review results constitute a useful basis for matching of inverter topology and the best control scheme according to various application areas.

    The present research is concerned with the development of two space vector pulse width modulated VSI models using the software package Matlab. The theoretical principles underlying the space vector modulation technique are presented but have been limited to the few relations needed for the model implementation. The first model, the formulation of which is based on the concept of switching function associated with the semiconductor power switches, is a switched mode inverter while the second model, the sine mode inverter, is formulated in terms of the duty times cycles of the pole switches is a nearly perfect sine wave space vector controlled generator. By comparison to the switched mode inverter, the sine mode inverter exhibits a larger bandwidth to frequency demand. The reliability of the sine mode model has been checked against the experimental results available in the literature provided by Analog Device Corporation.

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

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    K. Uday Kiran

    2014-08-01

    Full Text Available Multi-phase machines and drives is a topic of growing relevance in recent years, and it presents many challenging issues that still need further research. This is the case of multi-phase space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM, which shows not only more space vectors than the standard three-phase case, but also new subspaces where the space vectors are mapped. In the digital implementation, multiphase reference voltages are sampled and fed into the digital modulator to produce gating signals at a constant clock rate f. This means a finite pulse-width resolution because the gating state transition can only occur at some specific time instants depending on frequency. This results in a deviation of produced phase voltages from the desired phase voltages, i.e., increasing harmonic distortion especially for a small modulation index signal. In the present paper a filtered space-vector pulse-width modulation (SVPWM considering finite pulse-width resolution is proposed to produce a switching sequence with reduced baseband harmonics for multiphase voltage source inverters (VSI. This is achieved by incorporating a pseudo feedback loop regarding weighted voltage difference between desired and produced phase voltages.

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

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

    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).

    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.

    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)

    High precision control of the output voltage or current of a switch mode converter with fast response is required for a number of applications. Dependent on the type of application, the desired precision and transient response can be difficult, if not impossible, to achieve with standard PWM...... control caused by limitations in dynamic capabilities which often limits fast tracking of a reference signal, or fast settling during load steps due to too small achievable control loop bandwidth. Achievable open loop bandwidth for standard voltage and current mode PWM modulators is typical in the fs/10...... to fs which makes this type of modulators an excellent choice for a wide range of applications.

    For three-phase voltage source PWM rectifier under the traditional double closed-loop PI control strategy, the output dc voltage fluctuates with load current and the adjustment lasts long. By analyzing the disturbance response of the system, a load current feedforward control strategy is put forward. The disturb-ance current is measured directly as the faster current loop input instruction. This method overcomes the de-lay of the cascading closed-loop adjustment, so as to improve the dynamic response performance. An im-proved rectifier device was designed based on STM32F103Z. Three high speed ADs, an advanced timer TIM1, an integrated USB module and other on chip resources were used. The experimental results show that the load current feed-forward PWM rectifier based on STM32 has dramatically improved anti-load disturb-ance performance.%针对三相电压型PWM整流器在传统双闭环PI控制策略下,输出直流电压会随负载电流波动并且调整时间长这一问题,在分析系统扰动响应的基础上,提出了负载电流前馈控制方法。通过直接测量扰动电流,并将其作为电流环输入指令,以克服级联闭环调节带来的延迟,使得整流器输出电流紧紧跟随负载电流,进而提高输出电压的动态响应。为验证控制策略的可行性和有效性,利用STM32 F103 Z芯片的3个12位AD、高级定时器TIM1、集成USB模块等片上资源搭建了改进的整流装置,实验结果表明,基于STM32的负载电流前馈PWM整流器抗负载扰动能力得到了明显改善。

    2010-06-01

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

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.

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.

  5. 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 MΩ at 2 MHz. The voltage source BIS is based on voltage division between an internal current sensing resistor (Rs) and an external sample. To maintain high SNR, Rs is varied so that the source voltage is divided more or less equally. In order to calibrate the systems, we measured the transfer function of the BIS systems with several known resistor and capacitor loads. From this we may estimate the resistance and capacitance of biological tissues using the least-squares method to minimize error between the measured transimpedance excluding the system transfer function and that from an impedance model. When tested on realistic loads including discrete resistors and capacitors, and saline and agar phantoms, the voltage source-based BIS system had a wider bandwidth of 10 Hz to 2.2 MHz with less than 1% deviation from the expected spectra compared to more than 10% with the current source. The voltage source also showed an SNR of at least 60 dB up to 2.2 MHz in

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

    2016-07-01

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

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

    J S Siva Prasad; G Narayanan

    2013-06-01

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

    Full Text Available In order to reduce the torque ripple and harmonics for smooth operation of the machine and to reduce the amount of heat generated the motor has to be supplied with multi phase supply greater than three phase supply. Selection of even number of phases should be avoided, because it decreases the performance of the motor as poles coincide with each other. So, Five Phase Supply is preferred. A five phase five leg 10 switch inverter fed five phase star connected load operating with five different excitation is simulated and compared with that of three phase conventional inverter.

  18. 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.

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

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

    Active power filter (APF) based on voltage source inverter (VSI) is one of the important measures for handling the power quality problem. Mathematically, the APF model in a power grid is a typical nonlinear one. The idea of passivity is a powerful tool to study the stabilization of such a nonlinear system. In this paper, a state-space model of the four-leg APF is derived, based on which a new H-infinity controller for current tracking is proposed from the passivity point of view. It can achieve not only asymptotic tracking, but also disturbance attenuation in the sense of L2-gain. Subsequently,a sufficient condition to guarantee the boundedness and desired mean of the DC voltage is also given. This straightforward condition is consistent with the power-balancing law of electrical circuits. Simulations performed on PSCAD platform verify the validity of the new approach.

    This paper presents a single stage solar PV (photovoltaic) grid integrated power generating system using a three level voltage source converter (VSC) operating at low switching frequency of 900 Hz with robust synchronizing phase locked loop (RS-PLL) based control algorithm. To track the maximum power from solar PV array, an incremental conductance algorithm is used and this maximum power is fed to the grid via three-level VSC. The use of single stage system with three level VSC offers the advantage of low switching losses and the operation at high voltages and high power which results in enhancement of power quality in the proposed system. Simulated results validate the design and control algorithm under steady state and dynamic conditions.

  4. A very low noise, high accuracy, programmable voltage source for low frequency noise measurements

    2014-04-01

    In this paper an approach for designing a programmable, very low noise, high accuracy voltage source for biasing devices under test in low frequency noise measurements is proposed. The core of the system is a supercapacitor based two pole low pass filter used for filtering out the noise produced by a standard DA converter down to 100 mHz with an attenuation in excess of 40 dB. The high leakage current of the supercapacitors, however, introduces large DC errors that need to be compensated in order to obtain high accuracy as well as very low output noise. To this end, a proper circuit topology has been developed that allows to considerably reduce the effect of the supercapacitor leakage current on the DC response of the system while maintaining a very low level of output noise. With a proper design an output noise as low as the equivalent input voltage noise of the OP27 operational amplifier, used as the output buffer of the system, can be obtained with DC accuracies better that 0.05% up to the maximum output of 8 V. The expected performances of the proposed voltage source have been confirmed both by means of SPICE simulations and by means of measurements on actual prototypes. Turn on and stabilization times for the system are of the order of a few hundred seconds. These times are fully compatible with noise measurements down to 100 mHz, since measurement times of the order of several tens of minutes are required in any case in order to reduce the statistical error in the measured spectra down to an acceptable level.

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

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

    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.

The proposed SHRC is effective for specific nk±m order harmonics, with n>m≥0 and k=0,1,2,…. Using the properties of exponential function, SHRC can also be rewritten into the format of multiple resonant controllers in parallel, where the control gain of SHRC is n/2 multiple of that of conventional RC (CRC. Therefore, including SHRC in a stable closed-loop feedback control system, asymptotic disturbance eliminating, or reference tracking for any periodic signal only including these specific harmonic components at n/2 times faster error convergence rate compared with CRC can be achieved. Application examples of SHRC controlled three-phase/single-phase grid-connected PWM inverters demonstrate the effectiveness and advantages of the proposed SHRC scheme.

The operation voltage of the capacitive-coupling VSI can be set much lower than that of the inductive-coupling VSI when reactive power is for compensating inductive loads. Since a large portion of the loads in the distribution system are inductive, the capacitive-coupling VSI is further studied. The design and control method of the multifunctional capacitive-coupling VSI are proposed in this paper. Simulation and experimental results are provided to show its validity.

    In this thesis, the connection of a voltage source converter to the grid in a wind energy application is examined. The possibility of using a cheap control system without grid current measurements, is investigated. The control method is based on controlling the voltage angle of the inverter, which governs the active power flow. The highest frequency of the power variation, coming from wind turbine, is approx. 5 Hz. Since the proposed control method easily can handle such power variations it is very well suited for wind turbine applications. The characteristics of the system depend on the DC-link capacitor, the grid filter inductance and resistance. Large values of the resistance damp the system well but increase the energy losses. A high inductance leads to a reduced harmonic level on the grid but makes the system slower. By using feed-forward of the generator/rectifier current signal, the performance is increased compared to an ordinary PI-control. Combining the Linear Quadratic (LQ) control method with Kalman filtered input signals, a robust control method with a good performance is obtained. The LQ controller controls both the phase displacement angle and the modulation index, resulting in higher bandwidth, and the typical power angle resonance at the grid frequency disappears. 22 refs, 109 figs, 14 tabs

    Full Text Available This paper presents the regulation of the voltage and frequency of a stand-alone fixed-pitch wind energy conversion system (WECS based on a self-excited squirrel-cage induction machine. A shunt connected voltage source inverter (VSI and a controllable dump load are used for regulation purposes. A battery bank is included in the dc side of the VSI so that it can absorb and inject active power thus increasing the efficiency and availability of the system. A control scheme for the VSI with self-governing control of real and reactive power allows the state of charge of the batteries to be kept in a safe range while maximizing the voltage regulating capabilities of the VSI. The characteristics of the wind turbine, selfexcited generator, and the ratings of the VSI are considered in order to find out the load range for which voltage and frequency can be regulated for a given wind speed range. The possibility of the proposed system is verified by MATLAB/SIMULINK. simulations.

    This paper presents the design of a robust nonlinear controller for a parallel AC-DC power system using a Lyapunov function-based sliding mode control (LYPSMC) strategy. The inputs for the proposed control scheme are the DC voltage and reactive power errors at the converter station and the active and reactive power errors at the inverter station of the voltage-source converter-based high voltage direct current transmission (VSC-HVDC) link. The stability and robust tracking of the system parameters are ensured by applying the Lyapunov direct method. Also the gains of the sliding mode control (SMC) are made adaptive using the stability conditions of the Lyapunov function. The proposed control strategy offers invariant stability to a class of systems having modeling uncertainties due to parameter changes and exogenous inputs. Comprehensive computer simulations are carried out to verify the proposed control scheme under several system disturbances like changes in short-circuit ratio, converter parametric changes, and faults on the converter and inverter buses for single generating system connected to the power grid in a single machine infinite-bus AC-DC network and also for a 3-machine two-area power system. Furthermore, a second order super twisting sliding mode control scheme has been presented in this paper that provides a higher degree of nonlinearity than the LYPSMC and damps faster the converter and inverter voltage and power oscillations.

    In order to utilize the energy from the renewable energy sources, power conversion system is necessary, in which the voltage source inverter (VSI) is usually the last stage for injecting power to the grid. It is an economical solution to add the function of power quality conditioning to the grid-connected VSI in the low-voltage distribution system. Two multifunctional VSIs are studied in this paper, that is, inductive-coupling VSI and capacitive-coupling VSI, which are named after the fundamental frequency impedance of their coupling branch. The operation voltages of the two VSIs are compared when they are used for renewable energy integration and power quality conditioning simultaneously. The operation voltage of the capacitive-coupling VSI can be set much lower than that of the inductive-coupling VSI when reactive power is for compensating inductive loads. Since a large portion of the loads in the distribution system are inductive, the capacitive-coupling VSI is further studied. The design and control method of the multifunctional capacitive-coupling VSI are proposed in this paper. Simulation and experimental results are provided to show its validity. PMID:25177725

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

The effect by PWM modes on a three-phase six-state 120°conduction brushless DC motor was analyzed,and proposed torque ripple compensation control in PWM_ON_PWM mode, which can not only entirely eliminate torque ripple resulted from the current emerging in the turn-off phase during non-commutation period but also compensate torque ripple caused by the commutation current during commutation period. The torque ripple can be effectively reduced under both low speed and high speed operation using torque ripple compensation control in PWM ON PWM mode.

    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.

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

    邹建华; 岳子丁; 李洋

    2002-01-01

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

    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.

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

  13. Noise Shaping Filter Compensating PWM Distortion for Fully Digital Amplifier

    Science.gov (United States)

    Yoneya, Akihiko

    The full-digital audio amplifiers have several merits such as a high power enabling a small size of the amplifier and digital implementation of the signal processing which allows desired precision of the processing except for the final stage switching amplifiers. Unfortunately, the pulse width modulation (PWM) causes signal distortions because of the non-linearity of the modulation from the viewpoint of the transient response. This paper proposes a compensation method of the PWM distortion with feedback approach. In the noise-shaping filter of the delta-sigma modulator to calculate the pulse codes for the PWM, the distortion caused by the PWM is evaluated and fed it back to compensate the distortion. Eventually the filter is implemented as a state-variable filter with non-linear feedback from the quantizer. The calculation of the filter elements is also described. By using proposed filters, PWM signals with small distortions and small floor noise can be obtained to realize high-fidelity audio amplifiers.

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

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    R. Dolecek

    2008-12-01

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

    In this paper, based on multicomponent phase-field theory we intend to develop an efficient lattice Boltzmann (LB) model for simulating three-phase incompressible flows. In this model, two LB equations are used to capture the interfaces among three different fluids, and another LB equation is adopted to solve the flow field, where a new distribution function for the forcing term is delicately designed. Different from previous multiphase LB models, the interfacial force is not used in the computation of fluid velocity, which is more reasonable from the perspective of the multiscale analysis. As a result, the computation of fluid velocity can be much simpler. Through the Chapman-Enskog analysis, it is shown that the present model can recover exactly the physical formulations for the three-phase system. Numerical simulations of extensive examples including two circular interfaces, ternary spinodal decomposition, spreading of a liquid lens, and Kelvin-Helmholtz instability are conducted to test the model. It is found that the present model can capture accurate interfaces among three different fluids, which is attributed to its algebraical and dynamical consistency properties with the two-component model. Furthermore, the numerical results of three-phase flows agree well with the theoretical results or some available data, which demonstrates that the present LB model is a reliable and efficient method for simulating three-phase flow problems.

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

    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. .

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The article describes a process of synthesis and qualitative assessment of the harmonic composition of voltages of multiple and single PWM pulses in time regulation, being, along with amplitude, frequency and phase method, one of control methods of an asynchronous motor. The main point of time regulation is that a pause after any two single PWM pulses with different polarity or after any two groups of multiple PWM pulses with different polarity changes during a process of regulation. Feature of time regulation is that a motor has fast response in the range of small-signal of control and good linearity of speed-torque characteristics in the whole control range. Analytical expressions of parameters of PWM pulses ai and ti are obtained which allow to simplify considerably a process of formation and implementation of time regulation using tabular or indexed-tabular methods. These expressions allow not only to define voltage amplitude of  harmonic but also to perform qualitative assessment of harmonic composition of output voltages at time regulation. It is specified that harmonic frequencies wi = w0/q change in inverse proportion to magnitude of parameter q during a process of regulation and there is a replacement of a fundamental frequency by frequencies of higher harmonics.The offered approach allows to synthesize voltage of uniform single and multiple PWM pulses and to perform their comparative and qualitative analysis and the obtained expressions can be used at modeling of AC motor work. Voltage of multiple PWM pulses which is formed using stepped reference voltage with even quantity of steps in a half period and a pause on a zero level has the best parameters by criterion of a minimum of harmonic components and a maximum of a factor of anharmonicity Kнс at time regulation.

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

    2001-01-01

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

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

    Aqueous suspensions of clay particles, such as montmorillonite (MMT) platelets and sepiolite (Sep) rods, tend to form gels at concentrations around 1 vol %. For Sep rods, adsorbing sodium polyacrylate to the surface allows for an isotropic-nematic phase separation to be seen instead. Here, MMT is added to such Sep suspensions, resulting in a complex phase behavior. Across a range of clay concentrations, separation into three phases is observed: a lower, nematic phase dominated by Sep rods, a ...

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

A back EMF detecting method based on the H_PWM-L_PWM modulation model by analyzing the freewheeling condition of a non-conducted phase of this model was raised. This back EMF detecting method needed not to detect the center voltage of the three-phase winding, and gained a two times of the back EMF of a non-conducted phase. The simulation under MATLAB software environment and experimental results showed that this method had good performance in low speed control of brushless DC motor.%无刷电机的控制需要准确检测到转子的位置,反电动势法是检测无位置传感器无刷直流电机转子位置的一种简单、有效的方法.采用二相导通星形三相六状态的控制模式,通过分析在H_PWM-L PWM调制方式下不导通相的续流情况,提出了基于该调制方式的反电动势检测方法.该反电动势检测法不需要检测三相绕组中点电压,所获得的是不导通相的两倍的反电动势.MATLAB仿真和试验结果证明,该检测方法具有良好的低速控制性能.

    2007-01-01

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

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

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Science.gov (United States)

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

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

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

  15. 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

    2002-01-01

    A novel fiber optic probe system and a set of commercial ultrasonic Doppler velocimeters have been used to study the hydrodynamic behavior of a three-phase airlift loop (TPAL) slurry reactor. Experiments have been carried out in a loop reactor with 100 mm inner diameter and 2.5 m height, in which air, tap water and silica gel particles are used as the gas, liquid and solid phase, respectively. The radial profile of gas holdup, bubble size, bubble rising velocity, liquid circulating velocity, and the influence of the main operating conditions such as superficial gas velocity and solids concentration have been studied experimentally in the TPAL slurry reactor. The experimental results show that the bubble characteristics are different in various flow regimes and the radial profiles of some hydrodynamic parameters in the TPAL slurry reactor are more uniform than those in traditional three-phase reactors. The distribution of the bubble size and bubble rising velocity can be described by a lognormal function. The influence of superficial gas velocity on the hydrodynamic parameters is more remarkable than that of the solids concentration.

  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.

    1984-01-01

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

    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

    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.

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

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

    The paper establishes tight lower bound for effective conductivity tensor $K_*$ of two-dimensional three-phase conducting anisotropic composites and defines optimal microstructures. It is assumed that three materials are mixed with fixed volume fractions and that the conductivity of one of the materials is infinite. The bound expands the Hashin-Shtrikman and Translation bounds to multiphase structures, it is derived using the technique of {\\em localized polyconvexity} that is a combination of Translation method and additional inequalities on the fields in the materials; similar technique was used by Nesi (1995) and Cherkaev (2009) for isotropic multiphase composites. This paper expands the bounds to the anisotropic composites. The lower bound of conductivity (G-closure) is a piece-wise analytic function of eigenvalues of $K_*$, that depends only on conductivities of components and their volume fractions. Also, we find optimal microstructures that realize the bounds, developing the technique suggested earlier ...

    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.

    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.

    One of the basic issues in the study of hybrid systems is the well-posedness (existence and uniqueness of solutions) problem of discontinuous dynamical systems.This paper addresses this problem for a class of piecewise affine discontinuous systems with affine inequalities such as systems with pulse-width modulator under the definition lexicographic inequalities and the smooth continuation property of solutions.Furthermore,it is clear that when carrier signal h(t)=0,closed-loop pulse-width modulation (PWM) DC-DC converters are not well posed,and when some condition is satisfied,the closed-loop PWM DC-DC converters with a P controller are well posed.

  10. Comparative assessment of three-phase oil relative permeability models

    Science.gov (United States)

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

    2016-07-01

    We assess the ability of 11 models to reproduce three-phase oil relative permeability (kro) laboratory data obtained in a water-wet sandstone sample. We do so by considering model performance when (i) solely two-phase data are employed to render predictions of kro and (ii) two and three-phase data are jointly used for model calibration. In the latter case, a Maximum Likelihood (ML) approach is used to estimate model parameters. The tested models are selected among (i) classical models routinely employed in practical applications and implemented in commercial reservoir software and (ii) relatively recent models which are considered to allow overcoming some drawbacks of the classical formulations. Among others, the latter set of models includes the formulation recently proposed by Ranaee et al., which has been shown to embed the critical effects of hysteresis, including the reproduction of oil remobilization induced by gas injection in water-wet media. We employ formal model discrimination criteria to rank models according to their skill to reproduce the observed data and use ML Bayesian model averaging to provide model-averaged estimates (and associated uncertainty bounds) of kro by taking advantage of the diverse interpretive abilities of all models analyzed. The occurrence of elliptic regions is also analyzed for selected models in the framework of the classical fractional flow theory of displacement. Our study confirms that model outcomes based on channel flow theory and classical saturation-weighted interpolation models do not generally yield accurate reproduction of kro data, especially in the regime associated with low oil saturations, where water alternating gas injection (WAG) techniques are usually employed for enhanced oil recovery. This negative feature is not observed in the model of Ranaee et al. (2015) due to its ability to embed key effects of pore-scale phase distributions, such as hysteresis effects and cycle dependency, for modeling kro observed

  11. Three Phase Bone Scintigraphy in Active and Inactive Osteomyelitis

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

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

    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

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

    2012-04-01

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

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.

    2013-07-01

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

    Full Text Available This study presents a new active and reactive power control scheme for a single-stage three-phase grid-connected photovoltaic (PV system during grid faults. The presented PV system utilizes a single-stage three-phase current-controlled voltage-source inverter to achieve the maximum power point tracking (MPPT control of the PV panel with the function of low voltage ride through (LVRT. Moreover, a formula based on positive sequence voltage for evaluating the percentage of voltage sag is derived to determine the ratio of the injected reactive current to satisfy the LVRT regulations. To reduce the risk of overcurrent during LVRT operation, a current limit is predefined for the injection of reactive current. Furthermore, the control of active and reactive power is designed using a two-dimensional recurrent fuzzy cerebellar model articulation neural network (2D-RFCMANN. In addition, the online learning laws of 2D-RFCMANN are derived according to gradient descent method with varied learning-rate coefficients for network parameters to assure the convergence of the tracking error. Finally, some experimental tests are realized to validate the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.

    1991-01-01

    A high-frequency three-phase inverter is being developed to drive a miniature centrifugal compressor which is a key component in a long-life space-borne cryocooler. The inverter is a unique transformer-coupled design, tailored to the low-voltage high-current characteristic of the compressor's induction motor. The design and performance demonstration of a breadboard model of the inverter are described. The cryocooler uses a reverse-Brayton cycle with turbomachines to provide 5 watt of cooling at 70 K. The design target for input power to the compressor motor is 175 watts. Line-to-neutral phase voltage waveforms to be supplied by the inverter have an amplitude of 15 volt-rms at a frequency of 8 kHz. DC power at 28 volt is supplied to the inverter. The breadboard inverter was tested with a preliminary development model of the compressor. It drove the compressor over a range of operating conditions encompassing frequencies of 5 to 9 kHz at powers of 56 to 437 watt. Inverter efficiencies, calculated from experimentally verified loss models, ranged from 89 to 95 percent over the tests. The design target on efficiency is 90 percent. The inverter was demonstrated to supply starting current adequate to overcome the starting friction of the compressor's self-acting gas bearings by a safe margin.

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

    2005-01-01

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

    This study reports the experimental observation and analysis of self-biased magnetoelectric (ME) effect in three-phase laminates. The 2-2 L-T mode laminates were fabricated by attaching nickel (Ni) plates and ME particulate composite plates having 3-0 connectivity with 0.948Na0.5K0.5NbO3-0.052LiSbO3 (NKNLS) matrix and Ni0.8Zn0.2Fe2O4 (NZF) dispersant. The presence of two types of ferromagnetic materials, Ni and NZF, results in built-in magnetic bias due to difference in their magnetic susceptibilities and coercivity.

    The common-mode suppression techniques with nonzero vector pulse width modulation (NZPWM) for three-phase inverters are studied. They are random state pulse width modulation (RSPWM), active zero state PWM1 (AZSPWM1), active zero state PWM3 (AZSPWM3) and near state PWM (NSPWM). Firstly, the operation areas of modulation factor and reference voltage vector with different modulation strategies are analyzed. The results show that RSPWM has a smaller operation area than other three NZPWM and is suitable for the application with lower modulation ratio. Secondly, the DC voltage utilization rate and output harmonic of different NZPWM are researched and compared with that of traditional space vector modulation (SVM) by using theoretical analysis and simulation. The results show that AZPWM1, AZPWM3 and NSPWM can not only suppress the common mode voltage of three-phase inverters efficiently, but also maintain high DC voltage utilization rate. However, three-phase inverters with NSPWM have the higher output harmonic comparing with the traditional SVM. The research results provide theoretical basis and instruction for the selection of common mode voltage suppression technique with NZPWM for three-phase inverters and its further study.%  研究了三相逆变器的 RSPWM、AZSPWM1、AZSPWM3和 NSPWM 无零矢量共模电压抑制技术。首先,分析了不同调制策略的调制因数和参考电压矢量的工作区间,说明了 RSPWM 的工作区间较小,适用于低调制比工作场合。再次,利用理论分析和仿真方法,研究了无零矢量调制策略的直流电压利用率和输出谐波特性,并与传统 SVM 调制策略比较。结果表明,AZSPWM1、AZSPWM3和 NSPWM 调制策略能够有效地抑制三相逆变器共模电压,同时保持了较高的直流电压利用率。但相对 SVM 调制策略,三相逆变器的输出谐波含量有所增大。研究结果为三相逆变器的无零矢量共模电压抑制技术的选用及进一步研究提供了理论依据和指导。

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

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

    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.

    2016-05-01

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

    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.

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

    Suul, Jon Are

    2012-03-15

    Three-Phase Voltage Source Converters (VSCs) are finding widespread applications in grid integrated power conversion systems. The control systems of such VSCs are in an increasing number of these applications required to operate during voltage disturbances and unbalanced conditions. Control systems designed for grid side voltagesensor-less operation are at the same time becoming attractive due to the continuous drive for cost reduction and increased reliability of VSCs, but are not commonly applied for operation during unbalanced conditions. Methods for voltage-sensor-less grid synchronization and control of VSCs under unbalanced grid voltage conditions will therefore be the main focus of this Thesis. Estimation methods based on the concept of Virtual Flux, considering the integral of the converter voltage in analogy to the flux of an electric machine, are among the simplest and most well known techniques for achieving voltage-sensor-less grid synchronization. Most of the established techniques for Virtual Flux estimation are, however, either sensitive to grid frequency variations or they are not easily adaptable for operation under unbalanced grid voltage conditions. This Thesis addresses both these issues by proposing a simple approach for Virtual Flux estimation by utilizing a frequency-adaptive filter based on a Second Order Generalized Integrator (SOGI). The proposed approach can be used to achieve on-line frequency-adaptive varieties of conventional strategies for Virtual Flux estimation. The main advantage is, however, that the SOGI-based Virtual Flux estimation can be arranged in a structure that achieves inherent symmetrical component sequence separation under unbalanced conditions. The proposed method for Virtual Flux estimation can be used as a general basis for voltage-sensor-less grid synchronization and control during unbalanced conditions. In this Thesis, the estimated Virtual Flux signals are used to develop a flexible strategy for control of active

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

    Full Text Available Although uniformly sampled pulse width modulation (UPWM represents a very efficient digital audio coding scheme for digital-to-analog conversion and full-digital amplification, it suffers from strong harmonic distortions, as opposed to benign non-harmonic artifacts present in analog PWM (naturally sampled PWM, NPWM. Complete elimination of these distortions usually requires excessive oversampling of the source PCM audio signal, which results to impractical realizations of digital PWM systems. In this paper, a description of digital PWM distortion generation mechanism is given and a novel principle for their minimization is proposed, based on a process having some similarity to the dithering principle employed in multibit signal quantization. This conditioning signal is termed "jither" and it can be applied either in the PCM amplitude or the PWM time domain. It is shown that the proposed method achieves significant decrement of the harmonic distortions, rendering digital PWM performance equivalent to that of source PCM audio, for mild oversampling (e.g., resulting to typical PWM clock rates of 90 MHz.

    Proper estimation of voltage parameters has a significant meaning for power converters control systems. One of the measured parameter, directly associated with control process, is frequency of the basic voltage component at the converter output. Unfortunately, power converters generate a wide spectrum of harmonics as well as interharmonics, that makes difficulties in estimation this frequency. Measurement carried out in industrial applications exhibits complex nature of investigated signals often corrupted by resonances or overvoltages phenomena. It entails searching a new digital algorithms for frequency measurement. This work presents algorithm using modification of high-resolution Prony method connected with digital filtering. The investigations was based on simulations and real measured signals recorded in two different commercial PWM converters. Obtained results indicate accuracy of the method as well as its fast response. (author)

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

    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.

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

    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.

The proposed hysteresis current controller has successfully combined the advantage of the symmetrical unipolar carrier-based PWM and no dead-time effects. Under steady-state conditions, the current error will be confined within the inner band. When the commanded current step changes so that the current error exceeds the outer hysteresis band, the extreme voltage level is selected to force the current error towards zero quickly. Compared with the conventional three-level hysteresis current controller, the proposed hysteresis current controlled single-phase H-bridge voltage source inverters can further improve the inverter output current waveform. Simulated and experimental results have been given to demonstrate the validity and features of the novel hysteresis current controller with the improved switching scheme.

    It is well-known that rectifiers are used widely in many applications required AC/DC transformation. With technological advances, many studies are performed for AC/DC converters and many control methods are proposed in order to improve the performance of these rectifiers in recent years. Pulse width modulation (PWM) based rectifiers are one of the most popular rectifier types. PWM rectifiers have lower input current harmonics and higher power factor compared to classical diode and thyristor rectifiers. In this study, neuro-fuzzy controller (NFC) which has robust, nonlinear structure and do not require the mathematical model of the system to be controlled has been proposed for PWM rectifiers. Three NFCs are used in control scheme of proposed PWM rectifier in order to control the dq-axis currents and DC voltage of PWM rectifier. Moreover, simulation studies are carried out to demonstrate the performance of the proposed control scheme at MATLAB/Simulink environment in terms of rise time, settling time, overshoot, power factor, total harmonic distortion and power quality.

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

Generally switched capacitors and reactors are applied in the compensation of three-phase unbalanced parameters to limit the unbalanced voltage. Whereas, the compensation method has limited precision and speed, it is difficult to satisfy the requirement of the three-phase unbalanced voltage suppressing thoroughly and rapidly. In order to improve it, a new method based on the invention patent of flexible grounding technique (Patent number 201110006701.2) was presented in this paper. The three-phase unbalanced current to ground was compensated by the injecting zero sequence current to distribution network through pulse width modulation (PWM) inverter. The zero sequence voltage was controlled and the three-phase unbalanced overvoltage was thus suppressed. Simulation results showed that the proposed method limited the unbalanced overvoltage effectively, and the neutral displacement voltage could be limited to zero.

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.

    Ljusev, P.

    2004-03-15

    In this report a class of isolated PDM and PWM DC-AC SICAMs is described, which introduce the audio reference only in the output stage. AC-DC power supply is implemented in its simplest form: diode rectifier followed by a medium-size charge-storage capacitor. Isolation from the AC mains is achieved using a high frequency (HF) transformer, receiving the HF voltage pulses from the input 'inverter' stage and transferring them to the output 'rectifier+inverter' stage, which can use either PDM or PWM. The latter stage is then interfaced to the load using an output low-pass filter. Each of the dedicated stages is discussed in detail. Measurements on the master/slave PWM DC-AC SICAM prototype are presented to help benchmarking the performance of this class of SICAMs and identify the advantages and drawbacks. (au)

    The Plus Width Module (PWM) in microprocessors is commonly used in motor control field. If the ordinary PWM peripherals output PWM waveform, the software must calculate the period and duty cycle number based on the microprocessor's system clock cycle first, and then write them into the registers. As all known, the microprocessor without hardware calculator consume very long time in multiplication and division. In order to reduce the CPU's running time, a calculation hardware unit was designed to calculate the waveform parameters. The software only need to write the period (Hz units) to the period register and the duty cycle (% units)to its register. This hardware unit was designed with Verilog HDL and running in the Nios II system successfully.

  17. 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.

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

    Internal faults in three phase induction motors can result in serious performance degradation and eventual system failures if not properly detected and treated in time. Artificial intelligence techniques, the core of soft-computing, have numerous advantages over conventional fault diagnostic approaches; therefore, a soft-computing system was developed to detect and diagnose electric motor faults. The fault diagnostic system for three-phase induction motors samples the fault symptoms and then uses a fuzzy-expert forward inference model to identify the fault. This paper describes how to define the membership functions and fuzzy sets based on the fault symptoms and how to construct the hierarchical fuzzy inference nets with the propagation of probabilities concerning the uncertainty of faults. The designed hierarchical fuzzy inference nets efficiently detect and diagnose the fault type and exact location in a three phase induction motor. The validity and effectiveness of this approach is clearly shown from obtained testing results.

    2016-08-01

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

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

    2015-11-01

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

    Three-phase flow conditions are encountered regularly, for example, during migration of released NAPL through the vadose zone, certain stages of soil vapor extraction, bioslurping, or generation of gases by microbes. To model three-phase flow, a common approach is to construct three-phase relative permeabilities based on a combination of two-phase relative permeabilities. Although this circumvents a lack of experimental data, it can lead to serious underprediction or overprediction of residual NAPL saturation. This can mislead decision makers that need to predict whether a particular spill will reach the water table or predict the speed of a NAPL front or conduct an assessment of the performance of remediation actions. Experimental data to estimate three-phase relative permeabilities is sparse. A study by [2000a] generated significant experimental information. Their analysis focused on the high NAPL saturation region, given their emphasis on oil reservoir engineering. For environmental applications the low saturation region is of more interest. Using this data set, we derived a set of empirical relations that relate NAPL three-phase relative permeability krn to NAPL saturation Sn and spreading coefficient Cs for Sn less than about 0.1, such that krn = ? where A1 = 0.012 exp (-1.3Cs) and A2 = 2.1 - 0.60Cs + 0.036Cs2. At higher Sn, krn ≈ Sn4, independent of Cs. We present a pore-scale conceptual model that provides a phenomenological basis for the use of Cs as a predictor of krn at low Sn. We then present a number of simulated case studies that highlight the effect of these three-phase relative permeabilities on risk assessment or remediation design.

  9. Fractional Slot Concentrated Windings: A New Method to Manage the Mutual Inductance between Phases in Three-Phase Electrical Machines and Multi-Star Electrical Machines

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Olivier Barre

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available Mutual inductance is a phenomenon caused by the circulation of the magnetic flux in the core of an electrical machine. It is the result of the effect of the current flowing in one phase on the other phases. In conventional three-phase machines, such an effect has no influence on the electrical behaviour of the device. Although these machines are powered by power inverters, no problem should occur. The result is not the same for multi-star machines. If these machines are using a conventional winding structure, namely distributed windings, and are powered by voltage source converters, current ripples appear in the power supply lines. These current ripples are related to magnetic couplings between the stars. Designers should check these current ripples in order to stay within the limits imposed by the specifications. These electric current disturbances also provide torque ripples. With concentrated windings, a new degree of freedom appears; the configuration—number of slots/number of poles—can have a positive impact. The circulation of the magnetic flux is the initial phenomenon that produces the mutual inductance. The main goal of this discussion is to describe a design method that is able to produce not only a machine with low mutual inductance between phases, but also a multi-star machine where the stars and the phases are magnetically decoupled or less coupled. This discussion only takes into account the machines that use permanent magnets mounted on the rotor surface. This article is part of a study aimed at designing a high efficiency generator using fractional-slot concentrated-windings (FSCW.

    2013-04-01

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

  20. C1-Continuous relative permeability and hybrid upwind discretization of three phase flow in porous media

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lee, S. H.; Efendiev, Y.

    2016-10-01

    Three-phase flow in a reservoir model has been a major challenge in simulation studies due to slowly convergent iterations in Newton solution of nonlinear transport equations. In this paper, we examine the numerical characteristics of three-phase flow and propose a consistent, "C1-continuous discretization" (to be clarified later) of transport equations that ensures a convergent solution in finite difference approximation. First, we examine three-phase relative permeabilities that are critical in solving nonlinear transport equations. Three-phase relative permeabilities are difficult to measure in the laboratory, and they are often correlated with two-phase relative permeabilities (e.g., oil-gas and water-oil systems). Numerical convergence of non-linear transport equations entails that three-phase relative permeability correlations are a monotonically increasing function of the phase saturation and the consistency conditions of phase transitions are satisfied. The Modified Stone's Method II and the Linear Interpolation Method for three-phase relative permeability are closely examined for their mathematical properties. We show that the Linear Interpolation Method yields C1-continuous three-phase relative permeabilities for smooth solutions if the two phase relative permeabilities are monotonic and continuously differentiable. In the second part of the paper, we extend a Hybrid-Upwinding (HU) method of two-phase flow (Lee, Efendiev and Tchelepi, ADWR 82 (2015) 27-38) to three phase flow. In the HU method, the phase flux is divided into two parts based on the driving forces (in general, it can be divided into several parts): viscous and buoyancy. The viscous-driven and buoyancy-driven fluxes are upwinded differently. Specifically, the viscous flux, which is always co-current, is upwinded based on the direction of the total velocity. The pure buoyancy-induced flux is shown to be only dependent on saturation distributions and counter-current. In three-phase flow, the

    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. [Espanol] En la costa del Golfo de Mexico y en el noroeste del pais hay severos problemas de contaminacion en los aisladores de los sistemas electricos de distribucion. Para solucionar este problema, se reproducen, en laboratorios especializados, las condiciones de contaminacion para su analisis cualitativo y cuantitativo. 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). En este articulo se presenta una propuesta para seleccionar un transformador que cumpla con los requerimientos del IEC. Esta, por su facilidad de adquisicion y economia, permite que cualquier institucion docente o de investigacion cuente con una fuente de voltaje que permita la experimentacion de los fenomenos contaminantes con un costo minimo.

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

    Abdallah, Bassam; Willot, François; Jeulin, Dominique

    2016-07-01

    A general method is proposed to model 3D microstructures representative of three-phases anode layers used in fuel cells. The models are based on SEM images of cells with varying morphologies. The materials are first characterized using three morphological measurements: (cross-)covariances, granulometry and linear erosion. They are measured on segmented SEM images, for each of the three phases. Second, a generic model for three-phases materials is proposed. The model is based on two independent underlying random sets which are otherwise arbitrary. The validity of this model is verified using the cross-covariance functions of the various phases. In a third step, several types of Boolean random sets and plurigaussian models are considered for the unknown underlying random sets. Overall, good agreement is found between the SEM images and three-phases models based on plurigaussian random sets, for all morphological measurements considered in the present work: covariances, granulometry and linear erosion. The spatial distribution and shapes of the phases produced by the plurigaussian model are visually very close to the real material. Furthermore, the proposed models require no numerical optimization and are straightforward to generate using the covariance functions measured on the SEM images.

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

    Based on the former research, the mechanism of the influence of the medium structure on the sound velocity of the three- phase seabed deposit is discussed by theoretical method. Through analysis of several structure models of three-phase seabed deposit, an equation of sound velocity is presented, which can describe the effect of structure of three-phase deposit on its acoustic velocity. Seen form the derived equation, the equations of the sound velocity of the deposits with different medium structures are different, the influence of the medium structure on the sound velocity is apparent. The equation in the paper provides the theoretical basis to understand the mechanics properties through sound velocity test, and it can be easily adopted in engineering. The influences of the parameters of deposits, void ratio, gas concentration and modulus on sound velocity through the deposit are investigated by numerical analysis of the acoustic velocity. Numerical result shows that the sound velocity of three-phase medium is affected by void ratio, gas concentration and body modulus, and the sound velocity generally increases with the gas concentration increasing. The results of the paper can be helpful to the acoustic method.

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

    2016-07-01

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

    HAMEDANI, P.

    2016-08-01

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

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

    2013-01-01

    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.

    2002-01-01

    The self-consistent solutions describing the system of two interacting bags are obtained for the model of the three-phase chiral quark bags in the (1 + 1)-dimensional case. Special attention thereby is paid to studying the role of the fermions vacuum polarization inside the bags in the system dynamics and the boson field connecting (interpolating) the bags is accounted for only at the single-boson exchange level. The renormalized complete energy of the system is studied as the function of the parameters characterizing the geometry of the problem and the bags additional characteristics originating in the (1 + 1)-dimensional case. It is shown that the vacuum polarization in the system of two three-phase bags leads to origination of strong nonlinear interaction at small distances whereby in dependence on the bags characteristics this may be both repulsion and attraction

  15. A model for wave propagation in a porous solid saturated by a three-phase fluid.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Santos, Juan E; Savioli, Gabriela B

    2016-02-01

    This paper presents a model to describe the propagation of waves in a poroelastic medium saturated by a three-phase viscous, compressible fluid. Two capillary relations between the three fluid phases are included in the model by introducing Lagrange multipliers in the principle of virtual complementary work. This approach generalizes that of Biot for single-phase fluids and allows to determine the strain energy density, identify the generalized strains and stresses, and derive the constitutive relations of the system. The kinetic and dissipative energy density functions are obtained assuming that the relative flow within the pore space is of laminar type and obeys Darcy's law for three-phase flow in porous media. After deriving the equations of motion, a plane wave analysis predicts the existence of four compressional waves, denoted as type I, II, III, and IV waves, and one shear wave. Numerical examples showing the behavior of all waves as function of saturation and frequency are presented. PMID:26936553

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Microemulsion systems were used to remove chromium from an aqueous solution obtained from acid digestion of tannery sludge. The systems were composed by: coconut oil soap as surfactant, 1-butanol as cosurfactant, kerosene as the oil phase, and chromium solution as the aqueous phase. Two- and three-phase microemulsion extraction methods were investigated in the experiments. Viscosity, effective diameter of the droplets, and extraction and re-extraction efficiencies were evaluated for each system. Two- and three-phase systems showed small variations in droplet diameter, which can be attributed to the formation of micellar structures. Chromium recovery efficiencies for the studied systems were over 96%. The re-extraction step showed that the stripping solution used can release more than 96% of the chromium from the microemulsion phase. Experimental results confirm that chromium can be recovered efficiently using microemulsion systems.

    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.

Pretreatment of the slurries with a commercial enzyme preparation of proteases, Protizyme, 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.

    2004-01-01

    A three-phase soil model is proposed to simulate stress wave propagation in soil mass to blast loading. The soil is modelled as a three-phase mass that includes the solid particles, water and air. It is considered as a structure that the solid particles form a skeleton and their voids are filled with water and air. The equation of state (EOS) of the soil is derived. The elastic-plastic theory is adopted to model the constitutive relation of the soil skeleton. The damage of the soil skeleton is also modelled. The Drucker-Prager strength model including the strain rate effect is used to describe the strength of the soil skeleton. The model is implemented into a hydrocode Autodyn. The recorded results obtained by explosion tests in soil are used to validate the proposed model. Copyright

    industrial drives are still equipped with three-phase diode rectifiers. Thus, it is difficult to implement the prior-art harmonic control strategies for active front-ends. Moreover, the total cost and complexity has become an obstacle for these harmonic elimination approaches in multiple drive systems...... results have validated the effectiveness of the proposed approach in terms of harmonic elimination in three-phase multi-drive systems.......Power electronics technology has been widely used for decades in the modern motor drive systems. Beyond the control flexibility, the power electronics devices (e.g., diode rectifiers) are also the main harmonic source to the grid due to their nonlinearity, which deteriorate the power grid quality...

  2. A model for wave propagation in a porous solid saturated by a three-phase fluid.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Santos, Juan E; Savioli, Gabriela B

    2016-02-01

    This paper presents a model to describe the propagation of waves in a poroelastic medium saturated by a three-phase viscous, compressible fluid. Two capillary relations between the three fluid phases are included in the model by introducing Lagrange multipliers in the principle of virtual complementary work. This approach generalizes that of Biot for single-phase fluids and allows to determine the strain energy density, identify the generalized strains and stresses, and derive the constitutive relations of the system. The kinetic and dissipative energy density functions are obtained assuming that the relative flow within the pore space is of laminar type and obeys Darcy's law for three-phase flow in porous media. After deriving the equations of motion, a plane wave analysis predicts the existence of four compressional waves, denoted as type I, II, III, and IV waves, and one shear wave. Numerical examples showing the behavior of all waves as function of saturation and frequency are presented.

    2015-01-01

    The present work is concerned with the solution of a problem on thermoelastic interactions in a functional graded material due to thermal shock in the context of the fractional order three-phase lag model. The governing equations of fractional order generalized thermoelasticity with three-phase lag model for functionally graded materials (FGM) (i.e., material with spatially varying material properties) are established. The analytical solution in the transform domain is obtained by using the eigenvalue approach. The inversion of Laplace transform is done numerically. The graphical results indicate that the fractional parameter has significant effects on all the physical quantities. Thus, we can consider the theory of fractional order generalized thermoelasticity an improvement on studying elastic materials.

    1988-01-01

    Details of the energy and mass balances are considered in the context of a three-phase interstellar medium. The rates of mass exchange between the different phases are derived based on the pressure variations created by supernova remnant expansions. It is shown that the pressure-confined warm and cold gases have stable temperatures under a variety of interstellar conditions. The three-phase quasi-static configuration is found to be a natural outcome, and both warm and cold phases generally contribute about half of the total mass density to the diffuse interstellar gas. The model is also likely to be self-regulatory in the sense that variations of the input parameters do not strongly alter the general result, which is consistent with most current observations. The consequences of extreme conditions on this model are considered, and the possible implications for interstellar medium in other galaxies are briefly discussed.

    2000-01-01

    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 balances 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.

    λ exonuclease degrades one strand of duplex DNA in the 5’-3’ direction to generate a 3’ overhang required for recombination. Its ability to hydrolyze thousands of nucleotides processively is attributed to its ring structure and most studies have focused on the processive phase.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Omann, G M; Glaser, M

    1985-05-01

    The theory for quenching of fluorescently labeled membranes by dynamic quenchers is described for a three-phase system: a fluorescently labeled membrane, a nonlabeled membrane, and an aqueous phase. Two different experimental protocols are possible to determine quenching parameters. Using the first protocol, partition coefficients and bimolecular quenching constants were determined for a hydrophobic quencher in carbazole-labeled membranes in the presence of an unlabeled reference membrane. These parameters determined for 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl)ethylene (DDE) using this three-phase analysis were in good agreement with values determined by a two-phase analysis without the reference lipid. Hence, the theory was verified. In the second protocol, the quencher partition coefficient was determined for unlabeled membranes in the presence of a carbazole-labeled reference membrane. Partition coefficients for DDE determined by this method were the same as partition coefficients determined for carbazole-labeled membranes using the two-phase analysis. The greater ease in determining partition coefficients and bimolecular quenching constants by the three-phase analysis and, in particular, the ability to determine the partition coefficient in unlabeled membranes make the three-phase analysis especially useful. This method was used to study the effect varying the membrane lipid composition has on the partition coefficient. The data indicate that partition coefficients of DDE in fluid membranes are not dramatically dependent upon polar head group composition, fatty acid composition, or cholesterol content. However, partitioning into gel-phase lipids is at least 100-fold less than fluid-phase lipids.

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available This paper tends to develop for protection for costly appliances which require three-phase AC supply for operation. Failure of any of the phases or sudden change in voltage makes the appliance prone to erratic functioning and may even lead to failure. Hence it is of paramount importance to monitor the availability of the three-phase supply and proper voltage supply and switch off the appliance in the event of failure of one or two phases or if required voltage level is not available. The power to the appliance should resume with the availability of all phases of the supply with proper voltage level. The main advantage of this protector circuit is that it protects three-phase appliances from failure of any phase as well as from fluctuation of voltage. The concept in future can be extended to developing a mechanism to send message to the authority via SMS by interfacing GSM modem. Details description of all types of faults is given below.

    Wang, Yan; Yang, Junfeng; Matar, Omar

    2015-11-01

    One of the most common flow regimes in pipelines is that of slug flow: slug bodies corresponding to alternating blocks of aerated liquid which bridge the pipe, separated by elongated bubbles; the latter ride atop a liquid layer. The slugs travel at velocities that exceed the mixture superficial velocity; this can potentially cause structural damage, particularly at pipe bends and junctions. Two-phase slug flows have received considerable attention in the literature both experimentally and computationally but there has been very little work carried out on three-phase slugging. In the present work, the evolution of oil-water-air three-phase slug flow in a horizontal cylindrical pipe is investigated using two-dimensional and three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics simulations. The parameters characterising three-phase slug flow, e.g. slug length, propagation velocity, and slug formation frequency, are determined for various gas and liquid superficial velocities for a given pipe geometry. The results of this work are compared to available experimental data and numerical solutions based on approximate, one-dimensional models relying on the use of empirical correlations.

  11. A Three-Phase Multiobjective Mechanism for Selecting Retail Stores to Close

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rong-Chang Chen

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available To operate a successful and growing business, a retail store manager has to make tough decisions about selectively closing underperforming stores. In this paper, we propose using a three-phase multiobjective mechanism to help retail industry practitioners determine which stores to close. In the first phase, a geographic information system (GIS and k-means clustering algorithm are used to divide all the stores into clusters. In the second phase, stores can be strategically selected according to the requirements of the company and the attributes of the stores. In the third phase, a neighborhood-based multiobjective genetic algorithm (NBMOGA is utilized to determine which stores to close. To examine the effectiveness of the proposed three-phase mechanism, a variety of experiments are performed, based partly on a real dataset from a stock-list company in Taiwan. Results from the experiments show that the proposed three-phase mechanism can help efficiently decide which store locations to close. In addition, the neighborhood radius has a considerable influence on the results.

  12. Excitation capacitance required for self excited single phase induction generator using three phase machine

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The minimum and maximum excitation capacitance required for a self excited single phase induction generator using a three phase machine has been determined by an eigenvalue and eigenvalue sensitivity approach. It is observed that the required minimum capacitance reduces with the increase in load. Traditionally, the minimum and maximum capacitances required for a self excited induction generator (SEIG) were solved by a high order non-linear polynomial equation based on a per phase equivalent circuit model. The advantage of this proposed method is its simplicity since the complicated solution procedure of the high order polynomial is avoided. The generator consists of a three phase star connected induction machine with three capacitors connected in series and parallel with a single phase load. The developed dynamic model of the SEIG is based on the stationary reference frame d-q axes theory, and the equations of the excitation capacitors are described by a three phase abc model assuming a constant speed prime mover. The capacitance values obtained by the proposed method have been compared with those obtained by the conventional method and verified experimentally to confirm the validity and the accuracy of the proposed method

    Full Text Available An algorithm for calculating the normal and emergency modes of three-phase circuits with distributed loads is elaborated. We propose to divide the required unknown currents into two groups: load currents are considered as principal, and currents in the other circuit branches are considered as complementary. This approach allows calculating at the first phase the load currents, and then other currents using the first Kirchhoff's law. The form of the matrix equation and rules of matrix coefficients composition for each phase depends on the number of loads connected to the phases of the circuit. Matrix equation includes 3n unknown currents. The proposed method allows calculating both the symmetric and asymmetric modes in the three-phase unbalanced network, using the same calculation algorithm. The fault modes, such as a single-phase, two-phase, three-phase and phase-to-phase short-circuits as well as the open circuits with some phase loads (simulation of the no-load mode in any node and in any phase of the circuit, could be also calculated.

  14. Transient analyses using symmetrical component calculus in three-phase resistive and transformer-type SFCLs

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A transformer-type superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) can control fault current by adjusting a turn's ratio of the primary and secondary windings. In addition, by inserting a neutral line into the secondary winding, the power burden of the superconducting elements can be evenly distributed. We compared the operating and transient characteristics of the three-phase resistive and transformer-type SFCLs in the balanced and unbalanced faults that occur in power systems. In transformer-type SFCLs, where the primary and secondary windings of each phase were connected to one iron core, flux was induced to each winding of the normal phases by the fault current of the fault phase, thus causing simultaneous quench between superconducting elements. In the three-phase power systems, however, when faults occurred in more than two phases, the flux from fault current of the fault phase affected the other normal phase, thus decreasing the reduction ratio of fault current. We confirmed, however, that the fault current was reduced by 70% relative to cases without SFCLs. The results of the analysis of the transient characteristics of the three-phase transformer-type SFCL through the symmetrical component calculus showed that in the case of triple line-to-ground fault, a difference between positive and negative phase currents was large enough to cause an increase in the phase angle (δ) between the generator creating the power and the motor acting as a load. Thus, we expect that the transient stability deteriorates.

  16. Three-Phase Unbalanced Transient Dynamics and Powerflow for Modeling Distribution Systems With Synchronous Machines

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    2016-01-01

    Unlike transmission systems, distribution feeders in North America operate under unbalanced conditions at all times, and generally have a single strong voltage source. When a distribution feeder is connected to a strong substation source, the system is dynamically very stable, even for large transients. However if a distribution feeder, or part of the feeder, is separated from the substation and begins to operate as an islanded microgrid, transient dynamics become more of an issue. To assess the impact of transient dynamics at the distribution level, it is not appropriate to use traditional transmission solvers, which generally assume transposed lines and balanced loads. Full electromagnetic solvers capture a high level of detail, but it is difficult to model large systems because of the required detail. This paper proposes an electromechanical transient model of synchronous machine for distribution-level modeling and microgrids. This approach includes not only the machine model, but also its interface with an unbalanced network solver, and a powerflow method to solve unbalanced conditions without a strong reference bus. The presented method is validated against a full electromagnetic transient simulation.

    Variable speed drives (VSD) are adhered to induction motors in most of the present industrial applications. And since the world has become more conscientious to energy saving, inverters established them selves in domestic buildings and industry. Square wave inverters generate dominant harmonics of the 5th, 7th, 11th and 13th order. Inverters based on PWM strategy produce much higher harmonic order depending on the frequency modulation ratio. The presence of any sub-synchronous harmonics (sub-...

    To determine the number of multiple alternating layers of liver abscess, and changes in this number, as revealed by spiral CT, and to ascertain which factors are related to changes occurring during the three phase of this modality. Using three-phase sprial CT imagingewe studied 26 cases of liver abscess (pyogenic: amebi = 23:3). The number of layers comprising the abscess, as seen on postcontrast CT scans, was determined during the arterial (30sec), portal (70sec),and delayed (220sec) phase, and all cases were assigned to one of to groups according to changes in the number of layers observed during the three phases. With regard to underlying disease, the two groups were compared in terms of the presence of abscess and of diabetes mellitus, CT interval (time from oneset of symptoms to CT scanning), microbial agent (pyogenic vs. amebic), and the largest diameter of abscess as revealed by CT. Except in one case, three or four alternating layers (in 13(50%) and 7(27%) cases, respectively) were seen only during the arterial and portal phase. During each of the three phase and especially the delayed phase, where it was present in 25 of cases (96%)-two alternating layers (2:2:2) was the most common pattern, with a 3:3:3 pattern occurring in one case. All 12 cases (46%) in the unchanging-layer group showed one of three two patterns. All changing-layer group cases (14;54%) demonstrated three or four layers during the arterial and portal phase but only two during the delayed phase. The CT interval was the only significantly different factor between the two groups. During the first week, the number of cases in the unchanging-layer group was much higher than in the changing layergroup (86%, 14%), but during the second week this situation reversed (25%, 75%). Our study reveals that on three-phase dynamic CT images, a characteristic enhancement feature of liver abscess is three or four layers during the arterial and portal phases, with reduction to two layers during the delayed

    Diamond-like carbon films were prepared using a reactive Ar/CH4 high-power impulse magnetron sputtering system with a negative pulse voltage source for the substrate, changing the CH4 fraction up to 15% in the total pressure range from 0.3 to 2 Pa. The magnitude of the negative pulse voltage for the substrate was also varied up to about 500 V. The hardness of films monotonically increased with increasing magnitude of the negative pulse voltage. The films with hardnesses between 16.5 and 23 GPa were prepared at total pressures less than 0.5 Pa and CH4 fractions less than 10% by applying an appropriate negative pulse voltage of 300-400 V. In X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, the area ratio C-C sp3/(C-C sp2 + C-C sp3) in the C 1s core level was higher than 30% at pressures less than 0.5 Pa and CH4 fractions less than 15%. On the other hand, the films with hardnesses between 5 and 10 GPa were prepared with a relatively high growth rate at the partial pressures of CH4 higher than 0.1 Pa. However, the observation of the photoluminescence background in Raman spectroscopy indicated a relatively high hydrogen content.

    The Neutral Point Clamped topology due to high efficiency, low leakage current and EMI, its integration is widely used in the distributed generation (DG) systems. However the main disadvantage of the NPC inverter is given by an unequal distribution of the losses in the semiconductor devices, which...... leads to an unequal distribution of temperature. By using the Active NPC topology, the power losses distribution problem is alleviated. The modulation strategy is a key issue for losses distribution in this topology. In this paper two known strategies are discussed and a new proposed PWM strategy......, namely the Adjustable Losses Distribution (ALD) PWM strategy is proposed for better losses distribution in the Active NPC (ANPC) topology. Simulations using Simulink and the PLECS toolbox have been done for evaluating efficiency of different NPC topologies and some experimental results are presented...

    In order to reply to the forthcoming program of magnetically levitated trains, new pulse width modulated (PWM) inverters for linear synchronous motor (LSM) drives instead of the cycloconverter have been developed. Changing from the cycloconverter to the PWM inverter is really drastic. Accordingly, it was considered that reactive power and harmonics to transmission line must be reduced by using self-excited commutation instead of source commutation. At first, a half bridge (HB) and full bridges (FB) combined system with output transformer were constructed. Secondly, a control procedure for reducing voltage harmonics and preventing magnetic saturation of output transformers was proposed. Finally. a case for neutral point clamped (NPC) inverters was considered and compared with the HB/FB ones. It was considered whether HB/FB or NPC is suitable for magnetically levitated vehicles depends on the capacity. 8 refs., 12 figs., 1 tab.

    Full Text Available This paper discusses the design of a digital programmable logic circuit to produce a 5 V - output square wave pulses for four high power MOSFET switches using a fixed PWM circuit. It will be applied to drive the synchronous rectifier buck converter(SRBC circuit. The PWM signals with multiple fixed time delay of 15 ns, 232 ns, 284 ns and 955 ns are generated. The steps taken to analyze each propagation time delay of each logic gate used and its combination are carefully studied. A multiplexer is added at the output of the logic circuit to select and produce the desired output pulses of 20% duty ratio. The logic outputs are compared with the analog pulses and results match each other within 1% in difference.

    Full Text Available This paper further studies the moment stability of pulse-width-modulated (PWM feedback system which is subjected to multiplicative and additive random disturbance modeled by the derivative of Wiener process. Different from the existing investigation, we focus on its critical case. The linear plant considered herein is assumed to be critically stable; that is, the plant has one and only one pole at the origin, and the rest of the poles are left half of complex plane. We establish several globally asymptotically stability criteria for such PWM feedback systems and then propose an algorithm to calculate the stability bound effectively. Furthermore, we present two numerical examples to show the effectiveness of the theoretical results.

    A similar circuit as Fig. 12 can be realized with MOSFET or IGBT devices configured as bi-directional pairs in the output bridge. In this case, the complete process in Fig. 8 would be needed to generate the complete 50% gate drive pulses. The 50% gate pulses still support pulse transformer coupling, retaining the simplicity of the gate drive isolation. The PWM cycloconverter process scales directly to higher switching speeds possible with these devices.

  6. Closed loop control of ZVS half bridge DC-DC converter with DCS PWM Control

    Full Text Available

    The main drawback of the conventional symmetric control is that both primary switches in the converter operate at hard switching condition. Moreover, during the off-time period of two switches, the oscillation between the transformer leakage inductance and junction capacitance of the switches results in energy dissipation and electromagnetic interference (EMI emissions due to reverse recovery of MOSFETs body diodes. The asymmetric (complementary control was proposed to achieve ZVS operation for HB switches. However, asymmetric stresses distribution on the corresponding components may occur due to the asymmetric duty cycle distribution for the two primary switches. A new control scheme, to be known as duty-cycle shifted PWM (DCS PWM control, is proposed and applied to the conventional HB dc–dc converters to achieve ZVS for both the  switches without adding extra components and without adding asymmetric penalties of the complementary control. The concept of this new control scheme is shifting one of the two symmetric PWM driving signals close to the other, such that ZVS may be achieved for the lagging switch due to the shortened resonant interval. Moreover, based on the DCS PWM control, a new half-bridge topology is proposed to achieve ZVS for both the main switches and auxiliary switch by adding an auxiliary switch and diode in the proposed half bridge. ZVS for the  switch is achieved by utilizing the energy trapped in the leakage inductance. There are two control schemes. One is open loop and the other is closed loop. In open loop scheme, the given dc-dc converter is operating under disturbance. This disturbance effect is eliminated in closed loop scheme.

    A digitally controlled pulse width modulation/pulse skip modulation (PWM/PSM) dual-mode buck DC/DC converter is proposed.Its operation mode can be automatically chosen as continuous conduction mode (CCM) or discontinuous conduction mode (DCM).The converter works in PSM at DCM and in 2 MHz PWM at CCM.Switching loss is reduced at a light load by skipping cycles.Thus high conversion efficiency is realized in a wide load current.The implementations of PWM control blocks,such as the ADC,the digital pulse width modulator (DPWM) and the loop compensator,and PSM control blocks are described in detail.The parameters of the loop compensator can be programmed for different external component values and switching frequencies,which is much more flexible than its analog rivals.The chip is manufactured in 0.13 μm CMOS technology and the chip area is 1.21 mm2.Experimental results show that the conversion efficiency is high,being 90% at 200 mA and 67% at 20 mA.Meanwhile,the measured load step response shows that the proposed dual-mode converter has good stability.

  10. Development of a current-type PWM converter with high power factor. 1

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A power supply system for superconducting poloidal field coils of a next generation tokamak-type fusion device can be operated on the relatively low voltage for the duration of discharge except the plasma initiation. In the case of the conventional phase-controlled thyristor converters are adopted in such a system, the input power factor would be low in average, and a reactive power fluctuation caused by the change of DC output voltage may produce serious effects on the commercial transmission line. From the above viewpoint, a current-type PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) converter, which can work with the power factor of unity for the input power, is regarded as one of the promising candidates of the converters for the power supplies of next generation fusion devices. Hence, a 100kW-class current-type PWM converter has been developed by using IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) as switching devices. In this development, the basic performance has been preliminary investigated whether this converter is applicable to the power supply for the next generation fusion device. In addition, two different PWM control methods were examined whether these methods can realize a unit power factor and suppress the transient oscillation of converter input current at the same time in case that the reference of DC output current is changed rapidly.

    A voltage transformer, as voltage signal detection equipment, plays an important role in a power system. Presently, more and more electric power systems are adopting potential transformer and capacitance voltage transformers. Transformers are often large in volume and heavyweight, their insulation design is difficult, and an iron core or multi-grade capacitance voltage division structure is generally adopted. As a result, the detection accuracy of transformer is reduced, a huge phase difference exists between detection signal and voltage signal to be measured, and the detection signal cannot accurately and timely reflect the change of conductor voltage signal to be measured. By aiming at the current problems of electric transformation, based on electrostatic induction principle, this paper designed a non-contact voltage sensor and gained detection signal of the sensor through electrostatic coupling for the electric field generated by electric charges of the conductor to be measured. The insulation structure design of the sensor is simple and its volume is small; phase difference of sensor measurement is effectively reduced through optimization design of the electrode; and voltage division ratio and measurement accuracy are increased. The voltage sensor was tested on the experimental platform of simulating three-phase transmission line. According to the result, the designed non-contact voltage sensor can realize accurate and real-time measurement for the conductor voltage. It can be applied to online monitoring for the voltage of three-phase transmission line or three-phase distribution network line, which is in accordance with the development direction of the smart grid.

    Models of metal toxicokinetics are critically evaluated using both newly generated data in the NoMiracle project as well as those originating from older studies. The analysis showed that the most frequently used one-compartment two-phase toxicokinetic model, with one assimilation and one elimination rate constant, does not describe correctly certain data sets pertaining particularly to the pattern of assimilation of trace elements. Using nickel toxicokinetics in carabid beetles and earthworms as examples, we showed that Ni in fact exhibits a three-phase kinetics with a short phase of fast metal accumulation immediately after exposure, followed by partial elimination to an equilibrium concentration at a later stage of a metal exposure phase, and by final elimination upon transfer to an uncontaminated food/soil. A similar phenomenon was also found for data on cadmium kinetics in ground beetles and copper kinetics in earthworms in data already published in the literature that was not accounted for in the earlier analysis of the data. The three-phase model suggests that the physiology of controlling body metal concentrations can change shortly after exposure, at least in some cases, by increasing the elimination rate and/or decreasing metal assimilation. Hence, the three-phase model, that allows for different assimilation and/or elimination rates in different phases of exposure to a toxicant, may provide insight into temporal changes in the physiology of metal handling. Consequently, this alternative model should always be tested when describing metal toxicokinetics when temporal patterns of internal metal concentration exhibit an initial 'overshoot' in body metal concentrations.

    This paper presents a nonconventional method for fast starting of three phase wound rotor induction motors. This is achieved through shunting the stator and rotor windings across the supply for a predetermined short period. By this connection, the motor produces an extremely high starting torque. The feasibility of this basic idea has been confirmed through investigating the starting transients corresponding to this mode of operation. For this purpose, a rigorous state space mathematical model has been developed and simulated. The validity of the proposed method and the findings from the mathematical model have been confirmed experimentally.

    An intelligent power factor correction scheme is presented for three phase low power factor loads. This new scheme is able to perform individual phase sensing of parameters by monitoring at all times to sense a change in system parameters and affects individual phase correction by applying the exact amount of reactive components needed for each phase, and can also reduce negative sequence current caused by the load to improve system balance. An optimization criterion is used for the proper calculation of reactive power steps in a power compensation installation of capacitor banks. The criterion is enabled by sampling measurements performed on the electrical plant examined within specific interval of time.

    The non-controlled rectification and HIPWM(Harmonic Injected PWM) are respectively applied to the virtual rectifier and virtual inverter of equivalent AC/DC/AC model for matrix converter.The virtual rectifier generates fluctuant DC voltage when symmetric or asymmetric three-phase voltages are supplied.The compensation function is deduced based on the concept of switching function for compensating the modulation wave to eliminate the effect of fluctuant DC voltage on the HIPWM output voltage of virtual inverter.Its hardware implementation is very simple.Results of simulation with MATLAB/Simulink show that,the voltage gain of matrix converter can reach to 0.866,the theoretical maximum,and there is no loworder harmonics in its output voltage,verifying the correctness and effectiveness of the proposed control strategy.%在矩阵变换器间接变换法等效的交直和直交2个虚拟的环节上,分别采用不控整流和谐波注入PWM(HIPWM)2种简单易实现的调制方式.在三相输入电压是对称或非对称的情况下,虚拟整流环节输出的是直流波动电压,为消除此直流波动电压对虚拟逆变环节HIPWM输出的电压波形的影响,利用开关函数概念推导了对HIPWM的调制波进行补偿的补偿函数,此控制策略的硬件实现电路非常简单.应用MATLAB/Simulink进行了仿真,仿真结果表明:应用HIPWM控制策略,矩阵变换器的电压增益能够达到理论最大值0.866,输出电压中不含低次谐波,验证了所提控制算法的正确性和有效性.

The underactuated property of PWM rectifier was analyzed with its model in the dq synchronous reference frame. The choosing method for actuated and underactuated variables was given. Consequently, the current inner-loop controller was designed, based on the zero dynamics theory and partial feedback linearization control method. Moreover, auto-disturbance- rejection proportional integral (ADR-PI) voltage outer-loop controller was presented to reinforce the rejection ability for the AC voltage and DC load disturbances. The proposed PWM rectifier control system has better steady and dynamic performances, as well as strong robustness for the disturbances especially. Simulation and practical experiment results validate the correctness of the proposed theory and the effectiveness of the control strategy.

  16. Modeling, Analysis and Mitigation of Sub-Synchronous Interactions between Full- and Partial-Scale Voltage-Source Converters and Power Networks

    Voltage-source converters (VSCs) have gained widespread acceptance in modern power systems. The stability and dynamics of power systems involving these devices have recently become salient issues. In the small-signal sense, the dynamics of VSC-based systems is dictated by its incremental output impedance, which is formed by a combination of 'passive' circuit components and 'active' control elements. Control elements such as control parameters, control loops, and control topologies play a significant role in shaping the impedance profile. Depending on the control schemes and strategies used, VSC-based systems can exhibit different incremental impedance dynamics. As the control elements and dynamics are involved in the impedance structure, the frequency-dependent output impedance might have a negative real-part (i.e., a negative resistance). In the grid-connected mode, the negative resistance degrades the system damping and negatively impacts the stability. In high-voltage networks where high-power VSC-based systems are usually employed and where sub-synchronous dynamics usually exist, integrating large VSC-based systems might reduce the overall damping and results in unstable dynamics. The objectives of this thesis are to (1) investigate and analyze the output impedance properties under different control strategies and control functions, (2) identify and characterize the key contributors to the impedance and sub-synchronous damping profiles, and (3) propose mitigation techniques to minimize and eliminate the negative impact associated with integrating VSC-based systems into power systems. Different VSC configurations are considered in this thesis; in particular, the full-scale and partial-scale topologies (doubly fed-induction generators) are addressed. Additionally, the impedance and system damping profiles are studied under two different control strategies: the standard vector control strategy and the recently-developed power synchronization control strategy

    Full Text Available Recently, a new generation of ac-ac single-phase and three-phase power converters with more commutations per half cycle has been proposed for ac power due to the increasing availability and power capability of high frequency controlled-on and off power emiconductor switching devices. This paper presents three phase ac-acconverter whose control strategy is based on modified sinusoidal ulse-width modulation switching technique. As majority of the industrial loads are being inductive, the power factor is less. To improve the power factor, the delayed current is shifted to the input voltage, through a modification of the classical sinusoidal pulse width modulation switching technique. In this way, the decrease in the phase angle between the input current and voltage is feasible, and consequently, high cost compensation capacitors can be avoided. The improvement of power factor through this switching technique on the proposed converter is investigated and verified via simulation using the software Matlab/Simulink.

    In this study, enzyme-assisted three-phase partitioning (EATPP) was used to extract oil from flaxseed. The whole procedure is composed of two parts: the enzymolysis procedure in which the flaxseed was hydrolyzed using an enzyme solution (the influencing parameters such as the type and concentration of enzyme, temperature, and pH were optimized) and three-phase partitioning (TPP), which was conducted by adding salt and t-butanol to the crude flaxseed slurry, resulting in the extraction of flaxseed oil into alcohol-rich upper phase. The concentration of t-butanol, concentration of salt, and the temperature were optimized to maximize the extraction yield. Under optimized conditions of a 49.29 % t-butanol concentration, 30.43 % ammonium sulfate concentration, and 35 °C extraction temperature, a maximum extraction yield of 71.68 % was obtained. This simple and effective EATPP can be used to achieve high extraction yields and oil quality, and thus, it is potential for large-scale oil production.

    Full Text Available This paper presents sensorless speed control of induction motor (IM using four switch three phase inverter (FSTPI with direct torque and flux control (DTFC. The proposed sensorless DTFC system consists of an adaptive observer of rotor flux to accurately estimate stator resistance and speed simultaneously, without affecting drive performances. The switching technique for DTFC of IM using FSTPI in low power application is based on the principle of similarity between FSTPI and SSTPI (six switch three phase inverter, where the αβ plan is divided into 6 sectors and the formation of the voltage space vector is done in the same way as for SSTPI by using effective (mean vectors. This approach allows using the well-known established switching table of SSTPI for FSTPI. The simulation results indicates that the sensorless speed control of FSTPI fed IM with DTFC and adaptive observer provides accurate estimate, good trajectory tracking with different dynamics performance. The experimental results verify the effectiveness of the proposed method at different operating points.

    Full Text Available This original paper deals with a new approach for the study of behavior in nonlinear regime of a new three-phase high voltage power supply for magnetrons, used for the microwave generators in industrial applications. The design of this system is composed of a new three-phase leakage flux transformer supplying by phase a cell, composed of a capacitor and a diode, which multiplies the voltage and stabilizes the current. Each cell. in turn, supplies a single magnetron. An equivalent model of this transformer is developed taking into account the saturation phenomenon and the stabilization process of each magnetron. Each inductance of the model is characterized by a non linear relation between flux and current. This model was tested by EMTP software near the nominal state. The theoretical results were compared to experimental measurements with a good agreement. Relative to the current device, the new systemprovides gains of size, volume, cost of implementation and maintenance which make it more economical.
