types on how they transfer the energy. The energy can go from the input to the magnetic through load or the energy can be stored in the magnetic to be released later to the load [2,3]. In this paper among the Dc-Dc converters Half Bridge Converter (HBC) is widely used to have low voltage stress, low EMI and high efficiency performance. LCL Filter is added with the HBC to reduce the input current ripple. The experimental circuit investigated in this paper is Dc-Dc HBC converter, which allows the conversion of energy from higher level to lower level [4,5]. HBC with LCL filter is used to reduce the inrush current, decrease the switching losses and to achieve high frequency operation.

Energy harvesting and wireless data transmission system for rotor 
instrumentation in electrical machines

Energy harvesting and wireless data transmission system for rotor instrumentation in electrical machines

rotor current (4 channels) and temperature (8 channels). Two techniques were considered. The best solution was to insert physical taps between loops in the rotor such that small EMF voltages are induced in an external circuit. An active rectifier and DC/DC converter were designed to convert the low AC input voltage into a stable DC voltage for battery charging and powering the energy harvesting microcontroller, sensor circuitry and Bluetooth module. The system was successfully characterised (efficiency measurement) and calibrated (sensors and signal conditioning) on the lab- oratory bench to check it met all the design requirements. The current prototype might experience space limitations especially in compact machines with high power density, but the system could still be further miniaturised. As an example, if only temperature measurements are required the Bluetooth module and SAM4S microcontroller can be replaced with a single Bluetooth 4.0 IC fea- turing the same tasks but at lower sampling rates. This leads to lower power consumption, smaller electronic components, less energy storage requirement and a smaller footprint. Also, the size of the current prototype is limited by the use of components suitable for hand assembly and the presence of testing points/connectors that can be removed in further versions. Once the energy har- vesting is proved to work, this current design can be optimized depending on the user specifications to reduce size and power consumption, for example if only temperature sensing is required.

battery and modify its charging actions according to the battery algorithm. Conversely, a standard or simple battery charger supplies a constant dc or pulsed dc power source to a battery being charged. A simple charger does not alter its output based on time or the charge on the battery. Therefore, smart chargers are preferred for EV battery charging applications. The proposed EV battery charger power architecture includes an ac–dc converter with power factor correction (PFC) [5-6], followed by an isolated dcdc converter, as shown in Fig . 1. [6]. This architecture virtually eliminates the low- and high frequency current ripple charging the battery without using a bulky filter capacitor. Instead, it uses a high-frequency transformer. This structure maximizes battery life time without penalizing the charger volume. In the work that follows, the front-end ac–dc PFC converter is a conventional continuous conduction mode (CCM) boost topology [7-8]. Second stage of dcdc converter is a half-bridge resonant LLC converter. The criteria for choosing these topologies include high reliability, high efficiency, and low component cost.

Micro Controller Based Energy Efficient Four Steps Charging of a Capacitor Using a Buck Converter with Consecutive Changes of its Duty Ratio

Components with values of L is 1,10, and 20µH with C=1.0µF and T=0.1µs. Duty ratio consecutively changed to 0.2,0.4,0.6, and 0.8. Capacitors voltage increases stepwise to 0.4, 0.8, 1.2, and 1.6 V, which is consistent with EV. Current reaches steady state after a initial large flow. Steady state current then oscillates in between two values, then oscillation amplitude decreases when L increases. Fig. 7 is the magnification of Fig. 6 at around t=154µs. In this case of L=1.0µH, current oscillates linearly between-24 and 23 mA. For L=10 and 20µH, it oscillates between-2.4 and 2.4 mA and between-1.2 and 1.2 mA, respectively.

Implementation of TIBC for A Photovoltaic Water Pumping System to Drive a 3ф Induction Motor

Implementation of TIBC for A Photovoltaic Water Pumping System to Drive a 3ф Induction Motor

Perturb and observe: In one method, the controller adjusts the voltage by a small amount from the array and measures power; if the power increases, further adjustments in that direction are tried until power no longer increases. [16]This is called the perturb and observe method and is most common, although this method can result in oscillations of power output. It is referred to as a hill climbing method, because it depends on the rise of the curve of power against voltage below the maximum power point, and the fall above that point. Perturb and observe is the most commonly used MPPT method due to its ease of implementation. Perturb and observe method may result in top-level efficiency, provided that a proper predictive and adaptive hill climbing strategy is adopted.

Advanced High Voltage Boosting Converters Based on Bootstrap Capacitors

ABSTRACT:In this project, two high voltage-boosting converters are presented. By changing the connection position of the anode of the diode and by using different Pulse-Width-Modulation control strategies, different voltage conversion ratios can be obtained. These converters are constructed based on bootstrap capacitors and boost inductors. Above all, two boost inductors with different values, connected in series, can still make the proposed converters work appropriately.

High-voltage DC distribution is key to increased system efficiency and renewable-energy opportunities

High-voltage DC distribution is key to increased system efficiency and renewable-energy opportunities

Existing solutions within the AC-DC conversion-system topology are struggling to provide even a few percentage points of large-scale improvement despite localized improvements in performance. The answer may be to look instead to a very different AC-DC structure, based on new approaches rather than merely incremental ones. Using high-voltage DC for power transmission, in conjunction with new conversion approaches, offers tangible and significant benefits for both sourcing options and system end-to-end performance. In fact, some work from France Telecom and China Mobile estimate that between 8% and 10% across the board can be saved by going to DC distribution.

Full Bridge Phase Shifted On-Chip Dc-Dc Converter For Point-Of-Load Voltage Regulation

Full Bridge Phase Shifted On-Chip Dc-Dc Converter For Point-Of-Load Voltage Regulation

An essential part of distributing power from a DC supply to its points of load (POLs), has typically been implemented with a PWM circuit. However a couple of factors have applied increasing pressure to regulator design. Firstly, power density is being forced up continuously. Secondly, DC power supply voltage levels are tending to rise to minimize distribution losses, while device voltages are reducing to increase internal speed and efficiency. These trends combine to increase the voltage drop and associated switching losses across the regulator. The focus is mainly on power savings in VLSI technology. The power savings will be greater when the voltage regulators are close to the load devices that is point-of-load voltage regulation. The primary issue in the point-of-voltage regulator is the size of regulator. Several topologies proposed for reducing the size of the voltage regulator to make the design suitable point-of –load voltage regulation [9]. DC-DC converters are generally used as On-Chip power supplies in high performance integrated circuits. An ultra small area efficient voltage converter is required for the next generation of multivoltage systems because previous systems are highly sensitive to (P/G) noise[1]. Buck converters, which are step- down switching DC-DC converter, are popular because of their high power efficiency [16]-[18]. A second order inductor-capacitor (LC) passive filter in a buck converter occupy significant On-Chip area, therefore the passive components have been implemented off-chip. As a consequence of placing these components off-chip, significant voltage drop, power loss and degradation in speed and accuracy of the load regulation occurs and as a result causing slow response times and changing output levels. An On-Chip passive LC filter is therefore infeasible due to the large area when multiple On-Chip voltage regulators are needed[12]. To produce a voltage regulator appropriate for distributed point-of-load voltage generation, the passive LC filter within a buck converter is replaced with a more area efficient active filter circuit [11]. A switching input voltage is used to generate the desired output voltage, and the converter uses a filter structure to produce the desired output signal. The current supplied to the output node, however, does not originate from the input switching signal, rather it originates from the operational amplifier (Op Amp) output stage, similar to a linear voltage converter. The proposed voltage converter is therefore a hybrid combination of a switching and linear DC-DC converter [1]

Analysis of ZVS DC-DC Converter with Voltage Multiplier Circuit for High Voltage Gain

Analysis of ZVS DC-DC Converter with Voltage Multiplier Circuit for High Voltage Gain

DC-DC converters are used whenever DC electrical power is to be changed from one voltage level to another. They can be step up or down using a transformer. Mostly these are power electronic converters that can operate with semiconductor switches like MOSFETs and IGBTs. These switches are required to turn on and off periodically and they provide a regulated and isolated with wide output voltage for various applications. A Dc-Dc converter with a high voltage gain is used for many applications, such as lamp ballasts for automobile headlamps, fuel-cell energy conversion systems, solar-cell energy conversion systems, and battery backup systems for uninterruptible power supplies [1]-[6]. In dcdc converters with high voltage gain, there are several requirements such as high voltage gain [2]-[6], low reverse-recovery loss [7], [8], soft switching characteristic [16], low-voltage stress across the switches, electrical isolation, continuous input current, and high efficiency [9], [10]. In order to meet these requirements, various topologies are introduced.

A Bidirectional DC-DC Battery Interface for EV Charger with G2V and V2X Capability

ABSTRACT: Electric vehicles are gaining importance in the present situations as it is the most reliable transportation system in near future with less environmental pollution, fuel economy and energy efficiency. The concept of microgrid and smart grid has added a rage to distributed generation and increased communication between customers and utility. The idea of bidirectional interaction between grid and Electric vehicle has brought the V2G,V2H etc. technologies . Bi- directional chargers adds the benefit of EVs by enabling energy transfer from vehicle to grid (V2G) or vehicle to home (V2H) in addition to charging from grid to vehicle(G2V).Typically Bidirectional chargers consists of a AC-DC stage followed by DC-DC stage. This paper presents a non isolated integrated bi-directional DC-DC converter for interfacing the vehicle battery to the DC link in both charging modes and discharging modes. The DC-DC converter is formed by integrating buck and boost converters and thus it is able to operate in buck as well as boost modes in both direction (charging and discharging). During charging (G2V) the dc link voltage is stepped down by the DC-DC converter to battery voltage and provides required charging current by current control. This is buck operation during charging. During V2G or V2H operation the function of the DC- DC converter is to boost the battery voltage to provide the DC link voltage.

Comparison of PI Controller and Fuzzy Controller in Transformer less DC-DC Boost Converter

Comparison of PI Controller and Fuzzy Controller in Transformer less DC-DC Boost Converter

The main objective of the topology is to obtain high voltage gain and such characteristic can only be achieved when the duty cycle is greater than 0.5 and in CCM. With duty cycle lower than 0.5 or in DCM, there is no enough energy transfer from the inductors to the blocking capacitors, output capacitors, and load side, and consequently it is not possible to get the high voltage gain as that for duty ratio greater than 0.5. In addition, only with duty cycle larger than 0.5, due to the charge balance of the blocking capacitor, the converter can feature the automatic current sharing characteristic that can obviate any extra current-sharing control circuit. On the other hand, when duty cycle is smaller than 0.5, the converter does not possess the automatic current sharing capability any more, and the current-sharing control between each phases should be taken into account in this condition.

A Quadrupler Voltage Interleaved DC-DC Boost Converter with Fuzzy Logic Implementation

A Quadrupler Voltage Interleaved DC-DC Boost Converter with Fuzzy Logic Implementation

ABSTRACT: The output voltage generated by the sources such as photovoltaic arrays, the fuel stacks, the super capacitors or the battery sources are very low, in the range of 12-48 V. Hence it must be boosted to a high voltage. Therefore a novel topology for a boost converter, which can achieve a higher voltage gain, is necessary. The proposed converter is derived from a two-phase interleaved boost converter. The advantages of interleaved boost converter compared to conventional topologies include high voltage gain, high efficiency, low input current ripple and better transient responses. Even though high voltage gain can be obtained, the closed loop control of transformer-less boost converter with PI controller results in reduction of the system responses and causes damage to the components used in the system. So, in order to overcome these drawbacks a quadrupler voltage boost converter with Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) is presented. Here simulation models of transformer-less interleaved boost converter with PI controller and Fuzzy Logic Controller in MATLAB was developed.The analytical model for the switching intervals has been validated with the simulation results using MATLAB simulation tool.

Fuzzy Control Stand-Alone Micro Grid System with Battery Energy Storage System

Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) is used for primary frequency regulation. As developments in batteries progress, advancement in applications of BESS including the implementation in high power penetration is expected. Load shedding is one of frequency control methods during stand-alone operation, and the performance of frequency control improves in combination with BESS. However, without optimal size of BESS, it can cause the oscillations to the system. Thus, this article proposes the feasibility of using optimal BESS with load shedding scheme when the micro grid is disconnected from a main source. In the developing of smart grid, many new technologies and components such as energy storage and micro grid are playing more and more role for making the power system more reliable and efficient. A grid-connected micro grid consists of local controllers, local consumers, renewable energy generators and storage facilities will become an important part of future smart grid. The State of Charge (SOC) of battery bank is in an insufficient state, BESS is not possible to act as a continuous supplier. To charge SOC of the battery bank, the control methods of two charging modes are proposed and stability of control. BESS requires the stable and robust control methods whether performs either Constant Voltage Constant Frequency (CVCF) or grid-connected mode. In the controller point of view, Fuzzy control is widely used to supply stable voltage and current.

Regenerative brake is an energy recovery mechanism during braking operation it slows a vehicle by converting kinetic energy into another form of energy, which can be used immediately or stored in energy storage system [1]. This contrasts with the conventional braking mechanism, where the excess energy is converted to heat by friction in the brake and wasted. Regenerative braking is one of the type electrical braking which is used in electric traction and hybrid in order to utilize the braking energy. During braking operation the energy dissipated in resistor or stored in different systems such as batteries, capacitors or super conductive magnets .Instead of that super capacitors or chosen for the simplicity and high power capability [2-5]. Super capacitors are the energy storage devices they store energy in the form of electric field. Super capacitors are used as power sources, in front of batteries. So they are best placed in applications where high power levels are needed during a short period of time from milliseconds to few hundreds of seconds. Utility applications include uninterruptible power systems or utility voltage stabilizers in wind farms or photovoltaic (PV) plants [6-9].
