Abstract

This paper presents the development of a new design method of capacitive power transfer (CPT) which is based on hybrid concept for Biomedical Implants. This method is able to improve various issues found in the widely used CPT system that is bipolar CPT method. Based on the ability of this purposed, the simulation of the CPT system has been designed to prove an amount of power transferred through a layer of tissue. The design used to validate the suggested model which to powering implanted device, and it was performed with 3cm square plates, which have a layer of beef with the 5mm thickness in between 2 coupling plate. Power signal was generated by Class E zero voltage switching. The Class E zero voltage switching has been designed to generating alternate current with the 1MHz frequency appropriate to the hybrid CPT system specification.

Abstract

This work compacts with the modeling, simulation, and application of a Fractional Order Proportional Integral Differential (FOP-I-D) controlled Cascaded Flyback Switched Mode Power Supply (CFSMPS) system. It recommends Parallel cascaded flyback converter for the production of essential DC voltage from the input supply voltage. The output from CFSMPS is regulated by using closed loop configuration. The simulation of Closed-loop Proportional-Integral (PI) and FOP-I-D controlled CFSMPS system has been done and the results of the systems are related. The outcomes signify that the FOP-I-D based system has presented an enhanced response to represent as similar to the PI controlled CFSMPS system. The FOP-I-D controlled CFSMPS system has benefits like decreased steady-state error and enhanced time-domain response.

Abstract

Ultrasonic transducers are a key element that governs the performances of both generating and receiving ultrasound in an ultrasonic measurement system. Electrical impedance is a parameter sensitive to the environment of the transducer; it contains information about the transducer but also on the medium in which it is immersed. Several practical applications exploit this property. For this study, the model is implemented with the VHDL-AMS behavioral language. The simulations approaches presented in this work are based on the electrical Redwood model and its parameters are deduced from the transducer electroacoustic characteristics.

Abstract

In the current paper, a method is developed to diagnose potential electrical defects attacking doubly fed induction generator in Moroccan wind turbines firms. The proposed method is based on stator and rotor currents Lissajous curves analysis. Firstly, we focus on modeling of a non-defected wind conversion systems based on mathematic model created in Matlab Simulink which is able to reflect the behaviour of the wind turbine during asynchronous generator defects-free operation. After that, an indirect stator field vector oriented control is applied to obtain the wind system performance. Finally, stator and rotor currents Lissajous curves are analyzed in case of a non-defected generator that represents the system reference curves for diagnosing defects. The simulations had been realized by Matlab Simulink. Their results showed the effectiveness of the proposed method.

Abstract

Sliding Discrete Fourier Transform (SDFT) is very efficient regarding computational load and it possesses a very fast phase angle detection with excellent harmonic rejection at nominal frequency. However, at off-nominal frequency, SDFT generates errors in both magnitude and phase angle due to spectral leakage. This paper introduces a workaround for Fourier Transform to handle this disability under off-nominal frequency while avoiding variable-rate sampling. Sliding Fourier Transform (SFT) is used as a phase detector for a phase-locked loop whose output frequency is used to drive the SFT. The paper revisits the mathematics of Fourier Transform (FT) in a three-phase setting via a time-domain approach to show a newly proposed filtering technique for the double-frequency oscillation just by summing the FT sine/cosine filter outputs of the three individual phases. Also, the analysis aims to determine and correct the phase and magnitude errors under off-nominal frequency operation. The proposed technique (SFT-PLL) is tested in real time on dSPACE DS1202 DSP using voltage vectors that are pre-generated to simulate the most adverse grid conditions. The testing scenarios compare the performance of the SFT-PLL with that of the Decoupled Stationary Reference Frame PLL (dPLL). The results prove that SFT-PLL is superior to dPLL.

In this research paper we investigate the modelling and control of a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) driven in rotation by wind turbine, the control objectives is to optimize capture wind, extract the maximum of the power generated to the grid using MPPT algorithm (Maximum Power Point Tracking) and have a specified reactive power generated whatever wind speed variable, the indirect field oriented control IFOC with the PI correctors was used to achieve such as decoupled control. To validate the dynamique performance of our controller the whole system was simulated using dSPACE DS1104 Controller board Real Time Interface (RTI) which runs in Simulink/MATLAB software and ControlDesk 4.2 graphical interfaces.

Abstract

In this research, we propose a novel recommendation for improving CCT-D and lumen output (LO) of the 6600K in-cup packaging white LEDs (ICP-WLEDs) by varying its particle concentration. By using Light Tools and Mat lab software based on the Mie Theory, we derive the influence of the red phosphor particle’s concentration on the D-CCT and LO. The results show that the CCT-D are significantly affected when the concentration of the red phosphor varying from 0% to 1.8%. The CCT-D decreases from 4000K to 2200K and LO increases from 800 lm to 1300 lm.

Abstract

In this paper, the proposed cuckoo search (CS) algorism is presented to determine the global maximum power point (GMPP) tracking of photovoltaic (PV) under partial shading conditions (PSC). The traditions methods are failed to track the global maximum power point under PSC, which decrease the reliability of the power system and increase the system losses. The performance of the CS algorithm is compared with perturb and observe (P&O) algorithm for different cases of operations of PV panels under PSC. The proposed CS model can track the GMPP very accurate with high efficiency in less time under severe weather conditions as well as in PSC.

Abstract

Power loss reduction, improvement of voltage profile, system reliability and system security are the important objectives that motivated researchers to use custom power devices/FACTS devices in power systems. The existing power quality problems such as power losses, voltage instability, voltage profile problem, load ability issues, energy losses, reliability problems etc. are caused due to continuous load growth and outage of components. The significant qualities of custom power devices /FACTS devices such as power loss reduction, improvement of voltage profile, system reliability and system security have motivated researchers in this area and to implement these devices in power system. The optimal placement and sizing of these devices are determined based on economical viability, required quality, reliability and availability. In published literatures, different algorithms are implemented for optimal placement of these devices based on different conditions. In this paper, the published literatures on this field are comprehensively reviewed and elaborate comparison of various algorithms is compared. The inference of this extensive comparative analysis is presented.  In this research, Meta heuristic methods and sensitive index methods are used for determining the optimal location and sizing of custom power devices/FACTS devices. The combination of these two methods are also implemented and presented.

Abstract

A different circuit structure of nine-level current source power inverter is presented and discussed in this manuscript. The proposed topology is based on the common-emitter inverter topology equipped with an inductor-cell circuit. The common-emitter inverter works as the main inverter circuits delivering a three-level AC current waveform. The inductor-cell circuit produces the intermediate output current levels for nine-level current output waveform. Proportional integral current controller was applied to regulate the current streaming thru the inductor-cell. Multi triangular carrier signals based sinusoidal pulse width modulation method was utilized to obtain a lower waveform distortion. The proposed nine-level inverter circuit was tested and examined. The test results verified that the new nine-level inverter circuit worked well producing a nine-level current waveform with less low-frequency harmonic components.
