Development of a computer program for friction winding system design

Ünal, Fuat Gökhan
As the trend to deeper mines continues, mine hoists and associated equipment will become more sophisticated, complex, large and expensive. Correct selection of the right type of hoist is imperative. In this vital link between underground and surface, crude estimates of hoist capacity are not good enough, and the mining engineer must design and select the right hoisting system to meet the design specifications and establish the most suitable operating parameters. This study aims to constitute a software model, which results all required design parameters of friction type winding system on minimum required power. The computer program has been structured on Microsoft Visual Basic programming language. The program requires user inputs (winding depth, hourly hoisting capacity) and selections (type and number of motors, type of friction wheel mounting) to run macros and equations so that the operating parameters such as skip capacity, rope type and diameter, hoisting speed, acceleration, cycle period, friction wheel diameter are determined to give the minimum motor power requirement.


Implementation of a vector controlled induction motor drive
Acar, Akın; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
High dynamic performance, which is obtained from dc motors, became achievable from induction motors with the recent advances in power semiconductors, digital signal processors and development in control techniques. By using field oriented control, torque and flux of the induction motors can be controlled independently as in dc motors. The control performance of field oriented induction motor drive greatly depends on the correct stator flux estimation. In this thesis voltage model is used for the flux estima...
Development of piezoelectric ceramics for ultrasonic motor applications
Kalem, Volkan; Timuçin, Muharrem; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2011)
This study has been carried out to develop and manufacture piezoelectric ceramic materials which are utilized for ultrasonic motor (USM) applications. For this purpose, the effect of compositional modifications on the dielectric and piezoelectric properties of lead zirconate titanate (PZT) based ceramics was investigated. PZT based powders were produced using the mixed oxide method. The base composition was selected as Pb(Zr0.54Ti0.46)O3. The samples in the proximity of morphotrophic phase boundary were dop...
Design of a GaN Based Integrated Modular Motor Drive
Uğur, Mesut; Keysan, Ozan (2018-10-25)
In this study, design procedure of an Integrated Modular Motor Drive (IMMD) is presented focusing on high power density. The design is based on a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) and GaN FETs. Fractional slot concentrated windings are used on the stator. Slot/pole combination and winding configuration is selected based on having low cogging torque and high winding factor. An extended motor drive inverter topology is proposed where 2-level voltage source inverters are connected both in series and pa...
Short term electricity price forecasting in Turkish electricity market
Özgüner, Erdem; Güven, Ali Nezih; Tör, O. Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
With the aim for higher economical efficiency, considerable and radical changes have occurred in the worldwide electricity sector since the beginning of 1980s. By that time, the electricity sector has been controlled by the state-owned vertically integrated monopolies which manage and control all generation, transmission, distribution and retail activities and the consumers buy electricity with a price set by these monopolies in that system. After the liberalization and restructuring of the electricity powe...
Distribution network reconfiguration for loss reduction by multi branch exchange method
Galymov, Birzhan; Güven, Ali Nezih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
As structure and size of electric power distribution systems are getting more complex, distribution automation schemes become more attractive. One of the features that is desirable in an automated system is feeder reconfiguration for loss reduction. Loss reduction can make considerable savings for a utility and results in released system capacity. There is also improved voltage regulation in the system as a result of reduced feeder voltage drop. In this thesis, multi branch exchange algorithm is introduced ...
