Power electronics are vital for the generation, conversion, transmission, and distribution of electrical energy. Improving the efficiency, power density, and reliability of power electronics is an important challenge that can be addressed with electrothermal codesign and optimization. Current thermal management approaches utilize metallic heat sinks (HSs), resulting in parasitic load generation due to different potentials between electronic components on the printed circuit board (PCB). To enable electrical...
Modular embedded system design / implementation for mechatronic education and research
Nursal, Ali Özgü; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
In this thesis a modular embedded system for Mechatronics education and research is designed and implemented. Four types of control boards are manufactured and related software is developed at board and PC level. A star like topology is used for boards architecture. One bridge board is responsible for handling communication between the PC and all the other boards that are connected independently to that bridge board. For PC communication Universal Seial Bus (USB), for inter peripheral communication serial p...

Modular fixture design for CNC machining centers
Kılıçarslan, Yusuf; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
A new modular fixturing system is developed for CNC machining centers in the content of this thesis study. In the proposed fixture, studies are carried on to manufacture precise parts for finish milling operations. Some workpieces are loaded in the proposed fixturing system by using relevant fixture elements. Forces and moments are investigated that are acting during the machining operation. The precision of the machined surfaces is estimated by using Monte-Carlo Simulation. In the experimental section of t...
Integrated optical modulators with zero index metamaterials based on photonic crystal slab waveguides
Yildirim, Mustafa; GÖVDELİ, ALPEREN; Kocaman, Serdar (2019-01-01)
A novel integrated optical modulator design is presented using zero index metamaterial-based Mach-Zehnder Interferometer with photonic crystal phase shifters. The phase modulation relies on the shift between the photonic bandgaps having non-zero and zero effective refractive indices. A small change in the bulk index results in an effective index change between the arms of the MZI due to the disturbance of the band structure. Thus, such a structure provides a new approach for phase modulation on integrated o...
