Kılıç, Ümit Erdem
In this thesis a buck converter has been developed to be used as a test bench in power electronics laboratory. For this purpose, first, steady-state and small-signal analyses of a buck converter is carried out, then open-loop and closed-loop control of the converter are developed and simulated. Then, the circuit is manufactured and tested. The test results are compared with the simulation results. Finally, an experimantal procedure is prepared to enable the students to perform the experiment in the laboratory with the test bench developed.

Advanced readout and control electronics for mems gyroscopes
Temiz, Yüksel; Akın, Tayfun; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
This thesis reports the development of advanced readout and control electronics for MEMS gyroscopes developed at METU. These gyroscope electronics are separated into three main groups: high sensitive interface circuits, drive mode amplitude controlled self oscillation loops, and sense mode phase sensitive amplitude demodulators. The proposed circuits are first implemented with discrete components, and then integrated on CMOS chips. A self oscillation loop enabling constant amplitude drive mode vibrations in...
Design and fabrication of rf mems switches and instrumentation for performance evaluation
Atasoy, Halil İbrahim; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
This thesis presents the RF and mechanical design of a metal-to-metal contact RF MEMS switch. Metal-to-metal contact RF MEMS switches are especially preferred in low frequency bands where capacitive switches suffer from isolation due to the limited reactance. Frequency band of operation of the designed switch is from DC to beyond X-band. Measured insertion loss of the structure is less than 0.2 dB, return loss is better than 30 dB, and isolation is better than 20 dB up to 20 GHz. Isolation is greater than 2...
Design of an educational purpose multifunctional dc/dc converter board
Bağlan, Fuat Onur; Hava, Ahmet Masum; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
In this thesis a multifunctional DC/DC converter board will be developed for utilization as an educational experiment set in the switched-mode power conversion laboratory of power electronic courses. The board has a generic power-pole structure allowing for easy configuration of various power converter topologies and includes buck, boost, buck-boost, flyback, and forward converter topologies. All the converters can be operated in the open-loop control mode with a switching frequency range of 30-100 kHz and ...
A new high voltage partial discharge indicator system
Gül, İbrahim Oğuz; Hızal, Mirzahan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
In this thesis work, a new partial discharge magnitude indicator with LCD display was designed. This system was implemented in high voltage partial discharge detection and measurement systems. AVRISP In-System programmer is used to program the microprocessors used inside the display unit. The time resolution of the system (one pixel of the display unit) is 4 microseconds. The unit is capable of counting the number of impulses of the input voltage that is coming from the high voltage system within user selec...
