Practical EMI-filter-design procedure for high-power high-frequency SMPS according to MIL-STD 461

The paper presents a very practical EMI-filter design procedure for high-power high-frequency switch-mode power supplies (SMPS), conforming to the military standard MIL-STD 461. The design procedure is based on the knowledge of base-line common-mode (CM), and differential-mode (DM) EMI. Conducted-emission tests are carried out first according to MIL-STD 461. The measuring current probe only is used to separate the total conducted EMI into CM, and DM components, without the need for a special noise separator. The current attenuation of the filter is then simulated by a MATLAB program, using simplified high-frequency equivalent-circuit models for CM- and DM-filter components. Based on the proposed design procedure, a prototype EMI filter has been implemented for a unity-power-factor boost convertor, operating at a switching frequency of 20 kHz and an output power of 4 kW. Practical aspects in the implementation, such as filter-layout considerations and component selection, are discussed. The performance tests were carried out experimentally on the implemented filter according to MIL-STD 461, to verify the validity of the design procedure.

Unlu, Mehmet; Topalli, Kagan; Atasoy, Halil Ibrahim; Demir, Şimşek; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Akın, Tayfun (Elsevier BV, 2010-01-01)
This paper presents a systematic construction of a model for a hybrid connected RF MEMS and SMT components in a reconfigurable impedance tuner. The double stub hybrid impedance tuner which employs a high number of MEMS switches is selected to demonstrate the feasibility of the connections. In the hybrid tuner, MEMS switches are actuated with DC bias signals, where SMT resistors de-couple RF from the DC lines. The hybrid tuner is realized in two steps, where the MEMS impedance tuner is fabricated on a glass ...
Active clamped ZVS forward converter with soft-switched synchronous rectifier for high efficiency, low output voltage applications
Acik, A; Cadirci, I (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2003-03-01)
The analysis, design, and implementation of an active clamped ZVS forward converter equipped with a soft-switched synchronous rectifier (ACFC-SR), proposed for high-efficiency low output voltage DC-DC converter applications, is presented. The converter efficiency is maximised due to soft switching of the main, active clamp, synchronous rectifier, and freewheeling MOSFET switches. The operating principles of the ACFC-SR are analysed in detail, and the converter performance is compared with that of alternativ...
Metamaterial absorber-based sensor embedded into X-band waveguide
SABAH, CUMALİ; TURKMEN-KUCUKSARİ, OZNUR; Sayan, Gönül (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2014-07-17)
A novel metamaterial sensor, integrated with an X-band waveguide, is proposed for high-resolution measurements of variations in the dielectric constant and/or the thickness of a superstrate layer that covers a pair of absorber unit cells. Variations in superstrate parameters are potentially caused by physical, chemical or biological factors, and can be detected by measuring the corresponding shifts in the resonance frequency of the metamaterial sensor. It is estimated by simulation results that resolution l...
Highly efficient dual-band GaN power amplifier utilising pin diode-based tunable harmonic load matching
Kilic, Hasan Huseyin; Demir, Şimşek (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2019-01-09)
This study presents a tunable dual-band gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier (PA) operating in L-band. The first band is aimed near the lower edge of the L-band, 1GHz, and the second band is aimed near the upper edge of the L-band, 2GHz, which is located around the second harmonic of the first band. A pin diode-based tunable load matching circuit is proposed and designed in order to present the optimum fundamental and harmonic load impedances to the transistor in both operating bands for maximum efficiency...
Power-Efficient Hybrid Energy Harvesting System for Harnessing Ambient Vibrations
Chamanian, Salar; Çiftci, Berkay; Ulusan, Hasan; Muhtaroglu, Ali; Külah, Haluk (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-07-01)
This paper presents an efficient hybrid energy harvesting interface to synergistically scavenge power from electromagnetic (EM) and piezoelectric (PE) sources, and drive a single load. The EM harvester output is rectified through a self-powered active doubler structure, and stored on a storage capacitor. The stored energy is then transferred to the PE harvester to increase the damping force and charge extraction. The total synergistically extracted power from both harvesters is more than the power obtained ...
