A three phase all sic PWM rectifier for industry applications

Yolaçan, Cem
In this thesis work, a three phase PWM Rectifier for industry applications will be designed by using SiC Power MOSFETs and its laboratory prototype will then be implemented. The topology of the PWM rectifier is the three phase full bridge topology to convert three phase 400 V AC line-to-line voltage to desirable voltage levels between 500V and 1000V. The PWM Rectifier has the capability of permitting the flow of active power in both directions. The new technology SiC Power MOSFETs can operate at higher frequencies than IGBTs which provide higher efficiency because of lower switching losses and comparable conduction losses. Furthermore, operation at higher frequencies also provides us much lower acoustic noise levels and less harmonic distortion in line current waveforms during the operation of the rectifier. The theoretical results will be verified by experimental work.

Bilgin, HF; Kose, KN; Zenginobuz, G; Ermiş, Muammer; Nalcaci, E; Cadirci, I; Kose, H (2002-09-01)
This paper describes the application of a single-stage unity-power-factor buck-type pulsewidth modulation (PWM) rectifier to medium- and high-power variable-speed dc motor drives. The advantages of the developed system are low harmonic distortion in ac supply currents (complying with IEEE Std. 519 and IEC 555), nearly unity power factor over a wide operating shaft speed range, and nearly level armature current and voltage waveforms. These properties of output voltage and current quantities of the converter ...

Sahin, Osman Ulas; Kocer, Fatih (2016-08-05)
In this work, a high frequency pulse width modulation (PWM) integrated circuit (IC) designed and implemented in a commercial 0.35 mu m CMOS process is presented. Based on natural sampling method, the proposed PWM IC can generate both a PWM signal and its inverse for arbitrary frequencies up to 5 MHz. The PWM frequency can he adjusted via an external clock and an off-chip capacitor. The duty cycle of the PWM signal can be linearly varied from 5% to 95% by changing the input signal. Thanks to its analog trian...
A Self-Powered and Efficient Rectifier for Electromagnetic Energy Harvesters
Ulusan, Hasan; Zorlu, Ozge; Muhtaroglu, Ali; Külah, Haluk (2014-11-05)
This paper presents an interface circuit for efficient rectification of voltages from electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesters operating with very low vibration frequencies. The interface utilizes a dual-rail AC/DC doubler which benefits from the full cycle of the input AC voltage, and minimizes the forward bias voltage drop with an active diode structure. The active diodes are powered through an AC/DC quadrupler with diode connected (passive) transistors. The interface system has been validated to drive 22 m...
A Fully Integrated and Battery-Free Interface for Low-Voltage Electromagnetic Energy Harvesters
Ulusan, Hasan; Gharehbaghi, Kaveh; Zorlu, Ozge; Muhtaroglu, Ali; Külah, Haluk (2015-07-01)
This paper presents a fully integrated and battery-free 90 nm interface circuit for ac/dc conversion and step up of low-voltage ac signals generated by electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesters. The circuit is composed of two stages: The rectifier in the first stage utilizes an improved ac/dc doubler structure with active diodes internally powered by a passive ac/dc doubler and custom-designed comparators to minimize the voltage drops. With this, the efficiency is enhanced to 67% while providing 0.61 V to 40 m...

In this paper a 90 nm power management circuit for vibration based electromagnetic energy harvesters is introduced to generate 1 V from the rectified DC voltage. A mode selector block is designed to detect the output DC voltage level of the rectifier and adjust the mode of the driver block. In order to set the output to the desired level, a regulation system with negative feedback topology is utilized. The circuit is able to operate with input voltages as low as 0.25 V. The simulation results also show that...
