Utilization of the Inverter as a Boost Rectifier for the Voltage Regulation of Mechanical Batteries

Aydin, Kutlay
Mechanical batteries have been drawing interest due to their longer life time and bigger depth-of-discharge ratings. Also, they do not have the adverse effects on the environment as the electro-chemical batteries. In mechanical batteries, an electric machinery is run in motor mode at a constant speed, storing kinetic energy in its inertia. When there is a need of energy, the machine is operated in the generator mode and the kinetic energy is returned to the system as electrical power again. These systems are also being considered for space systems for the future. In these systems, regenerated voltage needs to be regulated at the bus level of the space vehicle. Using the inverter that drives the motor as a controlled rectifier in the generator region is proposed in this paper. The system is explained and experimental results are given for a small system to demonstrate the concept.


Development of cathode materials for li-ion batteries by sputter deposition
Erdoğan, Erdem Erkin; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2022-2-10)
The electrochemical performance of Li-ion batteries depends mostly on the cathode material. Cobalt has a huge impact on electrochemical properties and is widely used in cathode materials, but due to its toxicity and cost, recent research is focused on reducing the amount of cobalt in cathode materials. In this study, cathode active materials are produced by magnetron sputtering to obtain the optimum amount of cobalt while optimizing the electrochemical properties. Pechini sol-gel method is used to produce p...
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...
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...
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.
Electrochemical performance and modeling of lithium-sulfur batteries with varying carbon to sulfur ratios
Michaelis, Charles; Erisen, Nisa; PALA, DAMLA EROĞLU; Koenig, Gary M. (Wiley, 2019-02-01)
Lithium-sulfur batteries have attracted much research interest because of their high theoretical energy density and low-cost raw materials. While the electrodes are composed of readily available materials, the processes that occur within the cell are complex, and the electrochemical performance of these batteries is very sensitive to a number of cell processing parameters. Herein, a simple electrochemical model will be used to predict, with quantitative agreement, the electrochemical properties of lithium-s...
