Design and implementation of coupled inductor Cuk converter operating in continuous conduction mode

Ayhan, Mustafa Tufan
The study involves the following stages: First, coupled-inductor and integrated magnetic structure used in Cuk converter circuit topologies are analyzed and the necessary information about these elements in circuit design is gathered. Also, benefits of using these magnetic elements are presented. Secondly; steady-state model, dynamic model and transfer functions of coupled-inductor Cuk converter topology are obtained via state-space averaging method. Third stage deals with determining the design criteria to be fulfilled by the implemented circuit. The selection of the circuit components and the design of the coupled-inductor providing ripple-free input current waveform are performed at this stage. Fourth stage introduces the experimental results of the implemented circuit operating in open loop mode. Besides, the controller design is carried out and the closed loop performance of the implemented circuit is presented in this stage.


A novel two-parameter modulation and neutral point potential control method for the three-level neutral point clamped inverter
Üstüntepe, Bülent; Hava, Ahmet Masum; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In this thesis, the neutral point potential drift/fluctuation of the three-level neutral point clamped inverter is analyzed and a novel control algorithm, the two-parameter PWM method is proposed to confine the neutral point potential variation to a very small range. The two-parameter PWM method provides superior neutral point potential control performance even with small DC bus capacitors. The method is based on PWM pulse pattern modification and requires no additional hardware. Detailed analytical models ...

Dönük, Atilla; Ermiş, Muammer; Bilgin, Hazım Faruk; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In this research work detailed parallel and series equivalent circuits of a gapped iron-core shunt reactor with discretely distributed gaps are derived. The validity of the recommended equivalent circuits is verified by Finite Element Analysis and laboratory tests. Effects of fringing flux and discretely distributed gaps on inductance parameters and reactor losses are also investigated. Moving Strip Method for discretely distributed gapped shunt reactors is recommended. Two design procedures for shunt react...

Design and implementation of advanced pulse width modulation techniques and passive filters for voltage source inverter driven three-phase ac motors
Nebi, Onur Çetin; Hava, Ahmet Masum; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Advanced pulse width modulation (PWM) techniques such as space vector PWM, active zero state PWM, discontinuous PWM, and near state PWM methods are used in three-phase AC motor drives for the purpose of obtaining low PWM current ripple, wide voltage linearity range, and reduced common mode voltage (CMV). In some applications, a filter is inserted between the inverter and the motor for the purpose of reducing the stresses in the motor. The motor current PWM ripple components, terminal voltage overshoots, sha...

Chamanian, S.; Zorlu, O.; Külah, Haluk; Muhtaroglu, A. (2013-12-18)
This paper presents a CMOS integrated interface circuit for piezoelectric energy harvesters (PEH). A fully self-powered circuit, based on Synchronous Electric Charge extraction (SECE) technique, is implemented for non-resonant piezoelectric harvesters generating low power, in 10s to 100s mu W range. The circuit is realized in standard 180 nm UMC CMOS technology. A switch control circuit is designed and optimized to extract maximum power independently from excitation changes of the PEH. The total power loss ...
