This paper presents a proposal for a new memory polynomial modeling technique with non-uniform delay taps to capture the thermal memory effects in power amplifiers. In the proposed modeling structure, each order of the memory polynomial is assigned a different memory delay. The delay profile is an exponentially shaped function, instead of equal unit delays for all memory polynomial branches. Three different metrics, the memory effect modeling ratio (MEMR) and the normalized mean square error (NMSE) and spectrum error (SE) are used to benchmark the proposed exponentially shaped delay profile memorial polynomial model performance against previously published models, namely the memoryless, the unit delay and sparse delay memory based polynomial models. The model coefficients of four models are extracted for three different excitation signals, which were selected as a 64-QAM signal around 2.14 GHz with 20 kHz, 30 kHz and 40 kHz bandwidths, ensuring that the thermal memory effects dominate the electrical memory effects. It is shown that the proposed model outperforms all the previously published models for all three excitation signals used in the experiment.


Performance comparison of inverter control techniques used for the supply of a linear PM synchronous actuator
Ben Salem, I.; Ouni, L. El Amraoui; Gillon, F.; Benrejeb, M.; Brochet, P. (2011-09-10)
This paper presents performance comparison of three inverter control techniques. These techniques are respectively hysteresis control, MAIM control and direct voltage control (DVC). They are applied for a PM Linear Tubular Synchronous Actuator (PAITI,SA) drive fed, using a three phase voltage source inverter (VSI). This VSI is working with constant switching time intervals as in the standard torque control DTC system.
Optimization of Power Conversion Efficiency in Threshold Self-Compensated UHF Rectifiers With Charge Conservation Principle
Gharehbaghi, Kaveh; KOÇER, FATİH; Külah, Haluk (2017-09-01)
This paper presents a compact model for threshold self-compensated rectifiers that can be used to optimize circuit parameters early in the design phase instead of time-consuming transient simulations. A design procedure is presented for finding the optimum aspect ratio of transistors used in the converter and number of rectifying stages to achieve the maximum power conversion efficiency. In the presented analysis, the relation between the power conversion efficiency and the load current over the variation o...

This paper reports on the finite element analysis (FEA) of crosstalk in capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer (CMUT) arrays. Finite element calculations using a commercial package (LS-DYNA) were performed for an immersed I-D CMUT array operating in the conventional and collapsed modes. LS-DYNA was used to model the crosstalk in CMUT arrays under specific voltage bias and excitation conditions, and such a modeling is well worth the effort for special-purpose CMUT arrays for ultrasound applications s...
Performance Analysis of Reduced Common-Mode Voltage PWM Methods and Comparison With Standard PWM Methods for Three-Phase Voltage-Source Inverters
Hava, Ahmet Masum (2009-01-01)
This paper surveys the reduced common-mode voltage pulsewidth modulation (RCMV-PWM) methods for three-phase voltage-source inverters, investigates their performance characteristics, and provides a comparison with the standard PWM methods. PWM methods are reviewed, and their pulse patterns and common-mode voltage (CMV) patterns are illustrated. The inverter input and output current ripple characteristics and output voltage linearity characteristics of each PWM method are thoroughly investigated by analytical...
Parallel-MLFMA Solutions of Large-Scale Problems Involving Composite Objects
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2012-07-14)
We present a parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) for fast and accurate solutions of large-scale electromagnetics problems involving composite objects with dielectric and metallic parts. Problems are formulated with the electric and magnetic current combined-field integral equation (JMCFIE) and solved iteratively with MLFMA on distributed-memory architectures. Numerical examples involving canonical and complicated objects, such as optical metamaterials, are presented to...
