Four quadrant computer based motor test system development

İnan, Tolga
Development and research activities about electric motors require realistic feedback about the motor performance and efficiency. This feedback can be supplied by the help of the motor test systems without waiting for the end-user. Throughout this study, a computer based motor test system with four quadrant loading capability is developed. The system is capable of entering user-definedtest conditions, performing tests, acquisition of test data and displaying test results. The system has a visual user interface that can handle all tasks from a single computer.

Konvansiyonel sistemlere göre %2’lik verim artışı sağlanmıştır. Tümleşik motor sürücü sistemine uygun DA bara kondansatör seçimi gerçekleştirilmiştir. Interleaving tekniği kullanılarak kondansatör boyut...
High power density variable speed traction motor
Koushan, Salar; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020)
The purpose of this thesis is to develop, manufacture, and test a new traction induction motor that is capable of meeting the desired characteristics, limits and expectations set by the traction application in which it will be utilized. For achieving this goal, initially the finite element (FE) calculation techniques and model accuracy is verified by modeling a reference test motor in a FE environment and verifying the loss data and performance of the motor with measurement data. After testing and modelling...
An analytical approach for determination of optimal stator/rotor saliency number of a swıtched reluctance motor
Kılınç, Cem Erkan; Bostancı, Emine; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020)
The purpose of this study is to seek the optimal stator and rotor saliency number of a switched reluctance motor (SRM) for hybrid electrical vehicle (HEV) applications. For this purpose, first a previously developed SRM analysis software is investigated to identify possible errors in implementation of both the theory and the coding. Performance prediction method is based on the use of normalized force and permeance data produced via numerical field solution, and a polynomial based interpolation is introduce...
Multi-objective charging scheduling utilizing electric vehicle load models
Güzel, İven; Göl, Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-1)
Utilization of electric vehicle (EV) load models can improve the performance of smart charging strategies, which increase the reliability of the grid by harnessing the flexibility of EV loads. This thesis presents methods for utilizing EV load models in real time stochastic charging control with single and finite system-time horizons. First, the drivers’ load models are found with kernel density estimation. A single system time horizon coordinated charging control algorithm is devised to ensure each EV is c...
