A Parabolic Band Hysteresis Current Controller for Doubly Fed Induction Generators

Hamadi, Emad
Mortazavi, S. S.
A parabolic band hysteresis current controller (PBHCC) for DFIG is proposed in this paper to control the switching frequency variations in rotor side converter (RSC). A generalized online technique is used to determine the set of unique parabolic boundary for any operation speed. The PIHICC then utilized to regulate the current in RSC. In contrast to PI controller, PBHCC shows a very good transient behaviour. Beside that, the steady state performance is improved by reducing the switching frequency considerably. On the other hand, in compare with space vector-based hysteresis current controller (SVBIICC) which exhibit ververy fast transient behaviour, PRIICC significantly reduces the frequency switching variations in RSI. Simulation study is carried out using M AB/SIMITINK to validate proposed controller.


A Near-State PWM Method With Reduced Switching Losses and Reduced Common-Mode Voltage for Three-Phase Voltage Source Inverters
Uen, Emre; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2009-03-01)
The near-state pulsewidth modulation (NSPWM) method, which reduces the common-mode voltage/current, is proposed for three-phase pulsewidth modulation (PWM) inverter drives. The method is described, its optimal voltage vectors are found, and the sequence that these vectors are applied is determined. Its voltage linearity and de bus and ac output PWM current ripple characteristics are studied. Its output line-to-line voltage pattern is carefully studied with regard to switching transients that may cause overv...
A Simple and Novel Modulation Technique Used to Obtain Output Voltage Having a Frequency Multiple of Input Voltage Frequency
Salimi, A.; Mansourpour, S.; Ziar, H.; Afjei, E. (2011-09-10)
This paper introduces a new modulation method that can be adopted to obtain various possible output voltages depending on the switching topology and the voltage inputs available. This method is used to obtain a sinusoidal voltage waveform with a frequency which is a multiple of the frequency of the sinusoidal input voltage. There are various applications that need a variable frequency input and a limitation is that three-phase supply is not always available. A good example to this would be single-phase indu...

Kabir, Md. Ashfanoor; Abedin, Amina Hasan; Mustafiz, Rubiya Binta; İslam, Muhammed Qamarul; Choudhury, M. A. (2011-09-10)
A new circuit is proposed for single phase AC-AC conversion using Boost topology. Input Power factor, input current Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) and efficiency of the circuit are examined for the proposed circuit for different duty cycles. As the output is boosted pwm chopped in ac supply, the voltage gain of the converter has both Buck and Boost characteristics. A single bidirectional switch is used for power conversion and results show good performance. Analysis and simulation results for the circuit a...

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...
