Abstract

There is no easy way to convert Photovoltaic (PV) energy with high efficiency due to dynamic changes in solar irradiance and temperature. This paper illustrates a control strategy to design and implementation of Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) in a photovoltaic system using Perturb and Observe (P&O) algorithm. The PSIM simulation results confirm proper functioning of the proposed MPPT sub-circuit to achieve a constant 48V DC output from fluctuating voltage of solar panel by varying duty cycle of the MOSFET in the 24V-48V boost converter. The filtered output waveform of the SPWM driven H-bridge inverter via the L-C low pass filter is found to be a pure sine-wave of 48V peak which is then stepped-up 312V peak (220V rms) by using a step up transformer. The frequency of output voltage is found to be 50Hz with a total harmonic distortion (THD) of 0.001 which is much lower than the IEEE 519 standard.

Abstract

In this paper, virtual synchronous converter (VSCon) is modelled which behaves as synchronous generator including its all real-time characteristics in operating inverter. This VSCon is used to synchronize grid and inverter while integrating distributed generated power to microgrids. The frequency and voltage synchronization can be controlled by using synchronous generator mathematical model is installed into the inverter. The whole unit of VSCon operated is simulated in Matlab/Simulink for observing all consequences for synchronizing voltage, frequency and phase-angle. It is verified that the next generation energy resources can be integrated into microgrid making synchronization grid-inverter using VSCon. The simulation results are given to verify the concept of modelling VSCon functioning inverter as a synchronous generator.

Abstract

In this paper an extensive comparative study is carried out between PI and PID controlled closed loop model of an adjustable speed Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) drive. The incorporation of Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM) strategy establishes near sinusoidal armature phase currents and comparatively less torque ripples without sacrificing torque/weight ratio. In this closed loop model of PMSM drive, the information about reference speed is provided to a speed controller, to ensure that actual drive speed tracks the reference speed with ideally zero steady state speed error. The entire model of PMSM closed loop drive is divided into two loops, inner loop current and outer loop speed. By taking the different combinations of two classical controllers (PI & PID) related with two loop control structure, different approximations are carried out.  Hence a typical comparative study is introduced to familiar with the different performance indices of the system corresponding to time domain and frequency domain specifications. Therefore overall performance of closed loop PMSM drive is tested and effectiveness of controllers will be determined for different combinations.

Abstract

In this article, we have set up a vector control law of induction machine where we tried different type of speed controllers. Our control strategy is of type Field Orientated Control (FOC). In this structure we designed a Fuzzy Gain-Scheduling Proportional–Integral (Pi) controller to obtain best result regarding the speed of induction machine. At the beginning we designed a Pi controller with fixed parameters. We came up to these parameters by identifying the transfer function of this controller to that of Broïda (second order transfer function). Then we designed a fuzzy logic (FL) controller. Based on simulation results, we highlight the performances of each controller. To improve the speed behaviour of the induction machine, we have designend a controller called “Fuzzy Gain-Scheduling Proportional–Integral controller” (FGS-PI controller) which inherited the pros of the aforementioned controllers. The simulation result of this controller will strengthen its performances.

Abstract

Electric vehicle (EV) has gained incredible interest from the past two decade as one of the hopeful greenhouse gasses solution. The number of Electric Vehicle (EV) is increasing around the world; hence that making EVs user friendly becomes more important. The main challenge in usage of EV is the charging time required for the batteries used in EV. As a consequence, this subject matter has been researched in many credentials where a wide range of solutions have been proposed. However those solutions are in nature due to the complex hardware structure. To provide an unswerving journey an Android application based charging optimization is proposed. This application is aimed at giving relevant information about the EV’s battery state of charge (SOC), accurate location of the EV, booking of the charging slots using token system and route planner. At emergency situations, an alternative service is provided by mobile charging stations. Route planner indicates the temperature by which prediction of reaching the destination can be done. In addition to that nearest places such as parks, motels are indicated. The estimated time and distance between the electric vehicle and the charging station is calculated by the charging station server according to which the parking lot is allocated. Vehicle to charging station communication is established for the time estimation of charging. This will help the EV users to know about charge status and charging station, which support fast charging method and availability of the station on the go and also when to charge their EV. The Arduino UNO board has been used for the hardware part. The hardware results are confirming the conceptual of the proposed work.
