Design and implementation of a digital controller for universal telecommunication power supply modules are presented. The paper emphasises on converter control strategy, and its implementation by means of parallel operated, dual 8-bit microcontrollers. One of the microcontrollers is employed for user interface purposes, such as long term records, display and alarm facilities, which are inherently slow processes. The fast processing speed required by output voltage setting, current limit, and load current sharing however, is fulfilled by the second microcontroller, which adjusts the output voltages of modules. The proposed dual-processor based digital controller provides an extended operating output voltage range, user programmable current limit setting, serial-communi cation based active load current sharing between modules, and automatic derating without extra hardware requirement. Overload and output short-circuit protection features are also software-controlled. The controller is tested successfully on six parallel operating, 1.8 M, 0-70V telecommunication power supplies.


Real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation of electrical machine systems using FPGAs
Üşenme, Serdar; Dilan, R.A.; Dölen, Melik; Koku, Ahmet Buğra (2009-11-18)
This study focuses on the development an integrated software and hardware platform that is capable of performing real-time simulation of dynamic systems, including electrical machinery, for the purpose of hardware-in-the-loop simulation (HILS). The system to be controlled is first defined using a block diagram editor. The defined model is then compiled and downloaded onto an FPGA (¿Field Programmable Gate Array¿) based hardware platform, which is to interface with the controller under test and carry out the...
Output voltage control of a four-leg inverter based three-phase ups by means of stationary frame resonant filter banks
Demirkutlu, Eyyüp; Hava, Ahmet Masum; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
A method for high performance output voltage control of a four-leg inverter based three-phase transformerless UPS is proposed. Voltage control loop is employed and the method employs stationary frame resonant filter controllers for the fundamental and harmonic frequency components. A capacitor current feedback loop provides active damping and enhances the output voltage dynamic performance. The controller design and implementation details are given. Linear and nonlinear loads for balanced and unbalanced loa...

In this paper, a fully digital controller based on multiple digital signal processor (DSP) and field-programmable gate array (FPGA) boards has been proposed for parallel-operated cascaded multilevel converters (CMC) used in flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) applications. The proposed system is composed of a DSP-based master controller in combination with a multiple number of slave DSP boards, FPGA boards, microcontrollers, a programmable logic controller (PLC), an industrial computer, and their periph...

Arpınar, VE; Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat (2001-10-28)
In this study, development of a microcontroller controlled multifrequency electrical impedance tomography system is aimed. In this system, current injection and voltage measurements are both performed by the surface electrodes, which are microcontroller controlled. Data acquisition system process the measured signal using continuous time quadrature demodulator. After that, it converts analog information to digital and transfers it to the PC.
Concurrent operation of wireless power transfer based contactless slip ring and motor drive system with a single converter
Ayaz, Enes; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-9)
This thesis presents a novel approach for concurrent power transfer to wired and wireless systems using a single inverter. This proposed approach fits a cost-effective solution to wireless power transfer (WPT) systems used in contactless slip rings (CSR) applications such as sensors, radars, or wind-turbine pitch controls. In conventional systems, there are two separate converters: one is for the motor drive, and the other is for the WPT system. It is proposed that the switching harmonics of the motor drive...
