In this work, a selective linear phase filter is designed in cross-coupled form using dielectric resonators in Ku band to be used as a channel filter in IMUX of a satellite receiver. Extreme delay flatness is required: 1.5ns delay ripple over 60 % of the passband and symmetric cross-coupled filter with all ideal inverter couplings realizing four finite transmission zeros (FTZ) satisfying also the delay flatness requirements. Design is carried out on the software program FILPRO, then optimized in ADSTM and then on CSTTM. The dielectric resonators used in single mode and operates in the TE01δ mode, which is the fundamental mode of dielectric resonators and has no degenerate modes. The positive inverters (magnetic couplings) are realized as irises while the negative inverters (electric couplings) are realized in ridged waveguide forms which is the main novelty of this thesis. However when the inverters are converted into iris and ridge waveguide forms a tilt is observed in delay exceeding the delay ripple limits. The tilt is then corrected by redesigning the filter by inserting diagonal cross-couplings.

In this paper, a highly selective linear phase filter is designed and implemented in cross-coupled form using dielectric resonators in Ku band to be used as a channel filter in IMUX of a satellite receiver. Extreme delay flatness is required: 1.5 nS delay ripple over 60 % of the passband and 12 nS near the band edges. The initial design is carried out as 10 resonator symmetric cross-coupled filter with all ideal inverter couplings realizing two finite transmission zeros (FTZ) satisfying also the delay flatn...
Design, Implementation and Operation of a New C-type 2nd Harmonic Filter for Electric Arc and Ladle Furnaces

In this research work, the transient overvoltage suppression capability and harmonic filtering performance of C-type 2nd harmonic filters are optimized by using two-stage damping resistors; one is permanently connected to the filter circuit, while the other one is switched on by back-to-back connected thyristors during furnace transformer and Harmonic Filter (HF) energization periods. However in conventional C-type 2nd HFs there is only one damping resistor, which is permanently connected to the filter circ...
Series Active Filter Based Resonance Damping of High Power Three-phase, LCL Filtered, Grid Connected Voltage Source Inverters
Usluer, S. Nadir; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2014-06-04)
A series active filter (SAF) based method for the damping of resonant harmonics created by the LCL-filter of the grid connected PWM-VSI is proposed. Oscillations in multi-megawatt rated high power inverters with LCL-filters are damped with resistors which create undesired power losses typically up to 1% of the rated power of the system. The method stated in this paper overcomes the stability/oscillation problem while providing a solution to the resistive power loss. The proposed SAF compensated system perfo...

Implementation and characterization of an absorption filter for on-chip fluorescent imaging
Yıldırım, Ender; Arpali, Serap Altay (2017-04-01)
Here we present fabrication and characterization of an absorption filter with superior roll-on properties and precisely tunable cut-off wavelengths for fluorescent imaging applications in lab-on-a-chip systems. The filters were fabricated by spinning dye doped photopolymer (Orasol Yellow in Norland Optical Adhesive 60) on glass substrates. The fabrication technique allowed us to precisely tune the cut-off wavelength of the filters. We showed that filters with different cut-off in the range of 386 nm-504 nm ...
