An induction motor design tool combining analytical and field solution techniques

This paper first describes a software (TPCAD) for the design and optimization of induction motors. Then, a macro developed to transfer the geometry of the lamination designed by TPCAD to field solution software is described. In this manner, the designed motor model is quickly established within the field solution software. Hence, the tedious field solution model preparation phase is omitted from the design procedure. The approach described takes advantage of analytical tools to optimize a design for a specified performance and then, uses field solution techniques to trim this design. This approach saves designer time and shortens the order to shop floor time.


A novel modeling methodology and performance improvement technique for DMTL phase shifters
İstanbulluoğlu, İpek; Akın, Tayfun; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
This thesis presents distributed MEMS transmission line (DMTL) phase shifters, emphasizing the circuit modeling and design as well as the performance improvement. A novel modeling methodology is introduced for DMTL unit sections, with bridge widths larger than 50 μm. The introduced model is compared with EM simulation results and the CLR modeling results. For structures with bridge widths larger than 50 μm, the introduced model fits the simulation results much better than the CLR model. The simulated struct...
An artificial neural network estimator design for the inferential model predictive control of an industrial multi-component distillation column
Bahar, Almila; Özgen, Canan; Department of Chemical Engineering (2003)
An inferential control methodology, that utilizes an artificial neural network (ANN) estimator for a model predictive controller, is developed for an industrial multi-component distillation column. In the column, propane and butane is separated from a mixture of propane, n-butane, i-butane, and i-pentane with a top product purity of 96% propane and a bottom product purity of 63% n- butane. Dual composition control of the column must be used in a multivariable model predictive controller for an efficient ope...

An Optimized Analog Drive-Mode Controller for Vibratory MEMS Gyroscopes
Eminoglu, Burak; Alper, Said Emre; Akın, Tayfun (2011-09-07)
This paper presents an optimized analytical design procedure for the drive mode analog controllers used in vibratory MEMS gyroscopes. The behaviour of the controller during start-up is analyzed in detail including the effect of the limited voltage swing of the controller circuitry. As a result, an optimum design procedure is developed for controller design, which is also experimentally verified in a practical implementation demonstrating a settling time of only 50msec without any overshoot, for a gyroscope ...
An Autonomous Interface Circuit Based on Self-Investing Synchronous Energy Extraction for Low Power Piezoelectric Energy Harvesters
