Microwave metamaterial absorber for sensing applications

Sabah, C.
A metamaterial absorber (MA) based sensor is designed and analysed for various important applications including pressure, temperature, density, and humidity sensing. Material parameters, as well as equivalent circuit model have been extracted and explained. After obtaining a perfect absorption (PA) at around 6.46 GHz and 7.68 GHz, surface current distributions at resonance points have been explained. Since bandwidth and applicability to different sensor applications are important for metamaterial sensor applications, we have realized distinctive sensor demonstrations for pressure, temperature, moisture content and density and the obtained results have been compared with the current literature. The proposed structure uses the changes on the overall system resonance frequency which is caused by the sensor layer's dielectric constant that varies depending on the electromagnetic behaviour of the sample placed in. This model can be adapted to be used in sensor applications including industrial, medical and agricultural products. (C) 2017 Association of Polish Electrical Engineers (SEP).

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...
Adaptive controller based on grid impedance estimation for stable operation of grid-connected inverters under weak grid conditions
Temiz, Hakan; Keysan, Ozan; Demirok, Erhan (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2020-10-01)
An electric grid having high impedance seen from the connection point is considered as a weak grid and it adversely affects the system stability of grid-tied voltage source inverters in renewable power devices. In this study, an adaptive controller is proposed by configuring the settling time of the phase-locked loop based on the estimated grid impedance. Pseudorandom binary sequence injection and Fourier techniques are carried out for grid impedance estimation. Impedance-based stability analysis is perform...
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...
Frequency Selective Characteristics of a Plasma Layer with Sinusoidally Varying Electron Density Profile
GÜREL, ÇİĞDEM SEÇKİN; Oencue, Emrah (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-06-01)
In this study reflection, absorbtion and transmission characteristics of a plasma layer having sinusoidally varying electron number density are analysed. In the analysis, plasma layer is divided into thin subslabs with constant electron number densities. The general frequency selective behavior of the plasma is investigated by varying the plasma parameters, external magnetic field excitation and sinusoidal electron distribution in order to be used in recent plasma applications.
Zigzag metallic conductors as frequency selective surfaces
DELİHACIOĞLU, KEMAL; Sabah, Cumali; KARAASLAN, MUHARREM; ÜNAL, EMİN (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2013-06-18)
Reflection and transmission properties of a new type of frequency selective surface (FSS) made of zigzag metallic elements placed periodically on a dielectric substrate are investigated theoretically for arbitrary polarisation. The electric field integral equation technique with the subdomain overlapping piecewise sinusoidal basis functions are employed to compute the unknown current coefficients induced on the metallic elements. The zigzag FSS arrays act as a low-pass filter in S-(1-5 GHz), X-(8-12 GHz) an...
