This paper presents and studies a multilevel converter with two DC voltage sources and three H Bridges. The inverter modulates two independent single-phase voltages using a four wires output. The design of the inverter allows five levels to the modulated voltages that feed an asymmetrical two windings phase induction motor. The classical SPWM technique was used to modulate the multilevel power inverter switches; the frequency of the carrier (a triangular wave) was varied and total harmonic distortion (THD) of voltages and currents were compared. The simulation results were obtained using the Matlab/Simulink (R)/SimPowerSystems software.

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...
A Parabolic Band Hysteresis Current Controller for Doubly Fed Induction Generators
Hamadi, Emad; Mortazavi, S. S. (2011-09-10)
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 considera...

This paper presents a reconligurable triple stub impedance matching network using RF MEMS technology centered at 10GHz. The device is capable of covering impedances on the whole Smith Chart. The device structure consists of three variable length stubs which are designed as distributed MEMS transmission lines and two lambda(g)/8 length CPW transmission fines connecting the stubs. The variable length stubs are implemented with 12 MEMS switches over CPW lines and CPW lines connecting the switches. lambda(g)/8 ...
A 180 nm Self-Powered Rectifier Circuit for Electromagnetic Energy Harvesters
Ulusan, Hasan; Zorlu, Ozge; Külah, Haluk; Muhtaroglu, Ali (2013-12-18)
This paper presents a new self-powered low voltage rectifier implementation for vibration-based electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesters. The proposed circuit is an improved version of the previously reported rectifier, which was designed in TSMC 90 nm CMOS technology. The circuit is designed in lower cost UMC 180 nm CMOS technology, and uses a passive AC/DC quadrupler structure to supply the external power of the utilized active components. Simulation results show that the maximum power conversion efficiency...
A unity-power-factor buck-type PWM rectifier for medium/high-power DC motor drive applications
Bilgin, HF; Kose, KN; Zenginobuz, G; Ermiş, Muammer; Nalcaci, E; Cadirci, I; Kose, H (2002-09-01)
This paper describes the application of a single-stage unity-power-factor buck-type pulsewidth modulation (PWM) rectifier to medium- and high-power variable-speed dc motor drives. The advantages of the developed system are low harmonic distortion in ac supply currents (complying with IEEE Std. 519 and IEC 555), nearly unity power factor over a wide operating shaft speed range, and nearly level armature current and voltage waveforms. These properties of output voltage and current quantities of the converter ...
