The new three-phase 5-level current-source inverter (CSI) proposed in this paper was developed by connecting two classical current source inverters (CSIs) in cascade. This structure lend an output current harmonics minimization and without the use of high-frequency modulation. The output current waveform of the five-level CSI is composed of intermediary current levels, which are typically obtained from inductors current sources. The operational principle of this structure was analyzed. And to reduce the output current harmonics, triangular - sinusoidal PWM control technique was used. Simulation results showed that this new three-phase 5-level CSI topology operates correctly.

Analysis and Elimination of the Capacitive Feedthrough Current on Electrostatically Actuated and Sensed Resonance-Based MEMS Sensors
Kangul, Mustafa; Aydin, Eren; Gokce, Furkan; Zorlu, Ozge; Külah, Haluk (2017-12-01)
This paper presents the investigation of two different capacitive feedthrough current elimination methods with an analysis of the effect of the capacitive feedthrough current on the resonance characteristics of electrostatically actuated and sensed resonant MEMS sensors. Electrostatically actuated and sensed resonators have various applications, such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, mass sensors, and temperature sensors. In most of these applications, as sensitivity increases, gain decreases. The capacitive f...
Design and implementation of a voltage source converter based statcom for reactive power compensation and harmonic filtering
Çetin, Alper; Ermiş, Muammer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this thesis, design and implementation of a distribution-type, voltage source converter (VSC) based static synchronous compensator (D-STATCOM) having the simplest converter and coupling transformer topologies have been carried out. The VSC STATCOM is composed of a +/- 750 kVAr full-bridge VSC employing selective harmonic elimination technique, a low-pass input filter, and a /Y connected coupling transformer for connection to medium voltage bus. The power stage of VSC based STATCOM is composed of water-co...
Modeling and design of iron-core shunt reactors with discretely distributed air-gaps
Dönük, Atilla; Ermiş, Muammer; Bilgin, Hazım Faruk; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In this research work detailed parallel and series equivalent circuits of a gapped iron-core shunt reactor with discretely distributed gaps are derived. The validity of the recommended equivalent circuits is verified by Finite Element Analysis and laboratory tests. Effects of fringing flux and discretely distributed gaps on inductance parameters and reactor losses are also investigated. Moving Strip Method for discretely distributed gapped shunt reactors is recommended. Two design procedures for shunt react...
Design and implementation of a sic based three phase grid-connected current source inverter for solar applications
Bay, Olcay; Ermiş, Muammer; Bilgin, Hazım Faruk; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
In this thesis, analysis, design and implementation of a three-phase 400V, 20 kVA Current Source Inverter (CSI) have been carried out for grid-connected photovoltaic applications based on the multi-string inverter concept. This inverter can be used in large scale photovoltaic (PV) applications by connecting many in parallel at 400V and coupling to medium voltage through a common transformer. The power stage of the inverter is based on the basic full-bridge CSC topology and each power semiconductor which mus...

Canver, Mehmet; Ermiş, Muammer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
In this research work a 30 kW grid connected voltage source three-phase inverter with SiC MOSFET module has been designed and implemented, in order to work with a phase-shifted full bridge (PSFB) maximum power point tracker (MPPT) converter, in such a way that these two converters compose a full system solution. The emergence of commercial SiC based power MOSFETs, which have short turnon and turn-off times, has enabled to increase switching frequency as compared to traditional Si based switching components....
