Tsotoulidis, Savvas
In this paper, a wind energy conversion system that uses the "Cascade technology" especially the structure of Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) is presented and analyzed. Moreover, a simulation of this wind energy conversion system under fault conditions in MATLAB/SIMULINK is done and the results are evaluated. Open-circuit faults in one IGBT or in two IGBTs are studied.

A Detailed Power Loss Analysis of Modular Multilevel Converter
Erturk, Feyzullah; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2015-03-19)
This paper thoroughly examines the semiconductor power loss characteristics of modular multilevel converters (MMC). Power loss behavior is examined under different pulse width modulation (PWM) methods and operating conditions. The effects of stored energy level, circulating current control utilization, power factor and submodule voltage balancing method on power loss are studied. Furthermore, unbalanced power losses and specific semiconductor stresses within a submodule are visualized by investigating the l...
Design and Optimization of an Electromagnetic Micro Energy Scavenger with Parylene Cantilevers
Sarı, İbrahim; Balkan, Raif Tuna; Külah, Haluk (2007-11-29)
This paper presents the design, optimization, and implementation of an electromagnetic micro energy scavenger that uses an array of parylene cantilevers on which planar coils are fabricated. The coils are connected electrically in series to increase the voltage that is generated by virtue of the relative motion between the coils and the magnet. A detailed mathematical modeling and optimization of the design for various cases are carried out.
Detailed simulations of parabolic trough collector for investigating enhancement of heat transfer to absorber tube flow
Uygur, Sinan; Tarı, İlker; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2021-2-12)
In this thesis, a detailed method to simulate heat transfer and fluid flow of parabolic trough solar collectors is presented. An optical model of the considered collector is created with Tonatiuh ray tracing program. The data of ray tracing analysis is exported to MATLAB as a binary file for post-processing. Curve fitting and surface fitting to the data are performed to obtain the heat flux distribution on the absorber tube’s outer surface. User-defined functions (UDFs) for ANSYS Fluent Computational Fluid ...
Analysis and Fault Tolerant Control of a Five-Phase Axial Flux Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine
Bayazıt, Göksenin Hande; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-9-06)
This study investigates the fault-tolerance capability of an air-cored, axial flux, five-phase permanent magnet synchronous machine. The air-cored stator is designed by adopting a novel winding topology that is called flat winding. The coils of flat winding are made by bending and grouping one within another of the flat wires made of a laser-cut thin aluminum sheet. This topology provides superior current ratings, better cooling performance, and a robust structure for the stator. As the coils are covered w...
