Abstract

This paper presents parameters analysis of 4-level capacitor-clamped boost converter with hard-switching and soft-switching implementation. Principally, by considering the selected circuit structure of the 4-level capacitor-clamped boost converter and appropriate pulse width modulation (PWM) switching strategy, the overall converter volume able to be reduced. Specifically, phase-shifted of 120° of each switching signal is applied in the 4-level capacitor-clamped boost converter in order to increase the inductor current ripple frequency, thus the charging and discharging times of the inductor is reduced. Besides, volume of converters is greatly reduced if very high switching frequency is considered. However, it causes increasing of semiconductor losses and consequently the converter efficiency is affected. The results show that the efficiency of 2-level conventional boost converter and 4-level capacitor-clamped boost converter are 98.59% and 97.67%, respectively in hard-switching technique, and 99.31% and 98.15%, respectively in soft-switching technique. Therefore, by applying soft-switching technique, switching loss of the semiconductor devices is greatly minimized although high switching frequency is applied. In this study, passive lossless snubber circuit is selected for the soft-switching implementation in the 4-level capacitor-clamped boost converter. Based on the simulation results, the switching loss is approximately eliminated by applying soft-switching technique compared to the hard-switching technique implementation.

Abstract

In recent trends, the use of electric vehicles is taking a sudden hike as they seem to be a much more friendly for the environment as compared to the conventional vehicles that run on combustion engines for a mode of transportation. With the increasing popularity of electric vehicles, the demand on the utility grid is also increasing. To overcome this problem, other alternative sources of energy need to be considered. Photovoltaic energy as the solution is finding its place in the EV charging systems. However, the total amount of energy that can be generated from the PV system is constrained, based on many parameters such as solar radiation, availability of space for Solar power plant development, maintenance of the system, etc. Hence, to maintain the continuity of the system, it needs to be integrated with the grid as well. This offers a smooth charging operation for the electric vehicles. In this paper, a new method is introduced for the integration between the solar inverter system and the utility transmission grid. Quasi-Z-source topology is proposed for the system integration. This topology facilitates a bidirectional flow of power between the PV source, the storage unit and the utility grid. The greatest advantage of this topology is its flexibility with different voltage levels of the solar inverter DC connection and the storage battery which requires no circuit alteration for charging batteries of different ratings. The hardware for the system is also fabricated. The results demonstrate that the proposed topology fits the generalized requirements.

Abstract

This paper presents a droop control technique for equal power sharing in islanded microgrid. In this study, the proposed controller is based on the frequency droop method, is applied to a robust droop controller in parallel connected inverters. The previous robust droop controller deals with voltage droop method. A modification has been formed against this controller by adding a fuzzy logic controller with the frequency droop method. The only sharing error which is concentrated in this paper is the error in sharing the rated frequency among the inverters. By adapting fuzzy in the robust droop, it tries to eliminate the frequency error, hence that the frequency reference of the inverters keeps maintain at 50Hz. A derivation of generalized models of a single-phase parallel-connected inverter system is shown. The simulation results show that the proposed controller with FLC is able to improve the stability of frequency reference and the performance of power sharing between the inverters under the inductive line impedance.

Abstract

Wireless power transfer (WPT), through the transmission of contactless energy, is not only being used for charging batteries in smartphones, but it is also being increasingly used in the field of industrial applications. The capacitive based approach is utilized in this paper because of its ability to transmit power in a metal surrounding environment where the inductive-based approach failed to perform. This work focuses on the coupling study of a rotary CPT application where the power supply is stationary while the load rotates and therefore allows the load to rotate 360o free rotation. The Class E MOSFET power inverter is used here due to its ability to achieve high efficiency compared to other class of converters at high frequency. The prototype of the CPT for rotary application has also been successfully developed with disk plate thickness of 1mm-2mm. Overall, the developed CPT system for rotary application is able to deliver 5.5Watt with 83.33% efficiency. To enhance the power efficiency and ZVS conditions, a self-tuning circuit using phased-locked-loop has been proposed in this paper. The efficiency of the developed system with self-tuning circuit is increased to 97.%.

Abstract

As world population continues to grow and the limited amount of fossil fuels begin to diminish, it may not be possible to afford the needed amount of energy demanded by the world by only using fossil fuels. Meanwhile, the abundant nature of renewable energy sources brings new beginning for next generations. Greater penetration of electric vehicles will play an important role in building green and healthy world. The main remaining issue to make the switch from conventional to electric vehicle is performance cost; Efficient EVs that can drive for long distances, on single charge, are still expensive for ordinary consumer. To address this range problem, many attempts have been made during last decade. The goal was to conceive a power efficient electric vehicle, capable of managing its energy and reach longer distances. It depends on the electrical architectures and used algorithms.This paper adds new perspective for power Management in EVs; The proposed methodology introduces a new power management architecture based on communication and car learning. The conventional software level in EV has been replaced with self readjustable software. EVs are connected through a database, and can upload or download adjustment parameters while software is running.To take advantage of the new architecture, a new learning technique concept is introduced too, based on Cloud experience exchange between Electric Vehicles. This enhancement aims to build a better EV experience in power management through Cloud sharing and definitely cut with conventional architecture that may have reached its boundaries.

Abstract

Normally, the character of the wind energy as a renewable energy sources has uncertainty in generation. To resolve the Optimal Power Flow (OPF) drawback, this paper proposed a replacement Hybrid Multi Objective Artificial Physical Optimization (HMOAPO) algorithmic rule, which does not require any management parameters compared to different meta-heuristic algorithms within the literature. Artificial Physical Optimization (APO), a moderately new population-based intelligence algorithm, shows fine performance on improvement issues. Moreover, this paper presents hybrid variety of Animal Migration Optimization (AMO) algorithmic rule to express the convergence characteristic of APO. The OPF drawback is taken into account with six totally different check cases, the effectiveness of the proposed HMOAPO technique is tested on IEEE 30-bus, IEEE 118-bus and IEEE 300-bus check system. The obtained results from the HMOAPO algorithm is compared with the other improvement techniques within the literature. The obtained comparison results indicate that proposed technique is effective to succeed in best resolution for the OPF drawback.

Abstract

This article estimates the unknown dc motor parameters by adapting the adaptive model with the reference model created by experimental data onto armature current and speed response from separately excited dc motor .The field flux dynamics, which is usually ignored, is included to model the dynamics of the motor. The block diagram including the flux dynamics and model parameters is considered as the adaptive model. The integral time square error between the instant experimental data and the corresponding adaptive model data is taken as cost function. The Whale optimization algorithm is used to minimize the cost function. Additionally, to improve the performances of optimization algorithm and for accurate result, the experimental data is divided into three intervals which form the three inequality constraints. A fixed penalty value is added to the cost function for violating these constraints. The effectiveness of estimation with two different methods is validated by convergence curve.

Abstract

This paper aims to study the multi-level inverter (MLI) fed the widely used doubly-fed induction generators (DFIG). The new DFIG generator connected to the electrical grid is evaluated during single-pole autoreclosure operation to continue the generator support to the system. The effect of using MLI on the performance of the DFIG system during the dynamic operation of the autoreclosure is studied for the first time and integrating a new MLI during the fault and clearing periods. A dynamic arc model is represented depending on Kizilcay model. Furthermore, the dynamics performance of the DFIG during integration with MLI to improve the performance is studied. The MLI is preferred because of processing high power with high resolution of the voltage waveforms and lower stresses on switches. The MLI enhances the performance of DFIG-based generating system associated with electrical grid system in case of single-pole autoreclosure. The proposed cases of studies are simulated using Matlab/Simulink to evaluate the proposed system performance during the autoreclosure operation for faults in double-circuit transmission systems.
