Design and digital implementation of thyristor controlled reactor control

Genç, Murat
In this research work, the control system of 16 MVAr, 13.8 kV TCR will be designed and digitally implemented. A Real-Time Control System (NI CompactRIOTM Reconfigurable I/O) and a Digital Platform (NI LabVIEWTM Gcode) are used in the digital implementation of TCR control system. The digital control system is composed of reactive power calculation, firing angle determination and triggering pulse generation blocks. The performance of control system will be tested in the field. The simulation results will also be compared with test data.


Implementation and simulation of mc68hc11 microcontroller unit using systemc for co-design studies
Tuncalı, Cumhur Erkan; Aşkar, Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this thesis, co-design and co-verification of a microcontroller hardware and software using SystemC is studied. For this purpose, an MC68HC11 microcontroller unit, a test bench that contains input and output modules for the verification of microcontroller unit are implemented using SystemC programming language and a visual simulation program is developed using C# programming language in Microsoft .NET platform. SystemC is a C++ class library that is used for co-designing hardware and software of a system...
An FPGA implementation of real-time electro-optic & IR image fusion
Çölova, İbrahim Melih; Akar, Gözde; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, a modified 2D Discrete Cosine Transform based electro-optic and IR image fusion algorithm is proposed and implemented on an FPGA platform. The platform is a custom FPGA board which uses ALTERA Stratix III family FPGA. The algorithm is also compared with state of the art image fusion algorithms by means of an image fusion software application GUI developed in Matlab®. The proposed algorithm principally takes corresponding 4x4 pixel blocks of two images to be fused and transforms them by means...
Minimum concave cost multicommodity network design
Say, Fatih; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
Minimum Concave Cost Multicommodity Network Design Problem arises in many application areas, such as transportation planning, distributed energy system and especially both circuit and packet switching backbone network design. Exact concave optimization algorithms have been developed, but these methods are applicable if the network size is small. Therefore, these problems are usually solved by non-exact iterative methods. In this thesis work, methods proposed for circuit switching and packet switching networ...
Characterization of Driver Neuromuscular Dynamics for Human-Automation Collaboration Design of Automated Vehicles
Lv, Chen; Wang, Huaji; Cao, Dongpu; Zhao, Yifan; Auger, Daniel J.; Sullman, Mark; Matthias, Rebecca; Skrypchuk, Lee; Mouzakitis, Alexandros (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-12-01)
In order to design an advanced human-automation collaboration system for highly automated vehicles, research into the driver's neuromuscular dynamics is needed. In this paper, a dynamic model of drivers' neuromuscular interaction with a steering wheel is first established. The transfer function and the natural frequency of the systems are analyzed. In order to identify the key parameters of the driver-steering-wheel interacting system and investigate the system properties under different situations, experim...
Fuzzy actor-critic learning based intelligent controller for high-level motion control of serpentine robots
Arı, Evrim Onur; Erkmen, İsmet; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In this thesis, an intelligent controller architecture for gait selection of a serpentine robot intended to be used in search and rescue tasks is designed, developed and simulated. The architecture is independent of the configuration of the robot and the robot is allowed to make different kind of movements, similar to grasping. Moreover, it is applicable to parallel processing in several aspects and it is an implementation of a controller network on robot segment network. In the architecture several behavio...
