Concurrent operation of wireless power transfer based contactless slip ring and motor drive system with a single converter

Ayaz, Enes
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 can also be utilized to excite the WPT system while the low-frequency component can still be used to drive the motor. Thus, the converter of WPT systems is eliminated. In the past, however, conventional Si-based motor drives allow switching frequencies below 20kHz, making the WPT system bulky. Nowadays, with the development of wide-bandgap devices, the switching frequency has considerably increased up to 100kHz, making the proposed system a feasible size. However, the independent control of switching and low-frequency components is challenging while utilizing the conventional motor driving PWM techniques. In this study, novel concurrent operation methods are developed. In DC motor drives, the bipolar-PWM with the proposed frequency/duty cycle control is analyzed mathematically, and it is experimentally verified with a series-series (SS) WPT system and a DC motor driven by a GaN-based full-bridge (FB) converter. In AC motor drives, SPWM with the proposed carrier-phase-shift / modulation index control is analyzed mathematically. Firstly, the concurrent operation of the induction motor (IM) and an SS-WPT system for rotating electronic loads is experimentally verified with a GaN-based inverter. Secondly, the field winding of the wound-field synchronous motor is excited by the proposed method. In order to achieve light-weight on the rotor side, a series-none (SN) WPT system is used, and varying carrier-phase-shift is used to reduce the output capacitance.

In this paper, simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) concept is introduced for multi group multicast beamforming. Each user has a single antenna and a power splitter which divides the radio frequency (RF) signal into two for both information decoding and energy harvesting. The aim is to minimize the total transmission power at the base station while satisfying both signal-to-interference-plus- noise-ratio (SINR) and harvested power constraints at each user. Unlike unicast and certain ...
Highly Integrated 3 V Supply Electronics for Electromagnetic Energy Harvesters With Minimum 0.4 V-peak Input
Ulusan, Hasan; Zorlu, Ozge; Muhtaroglu, Ali; Külah, Haluk (2017-07-01)
This paper presents a self-powered interface enabling battery-like operation with a regulated 3 V output from ac signals as low as 0.4 V-peak, generated by electromagnetic energy harvesters under low frequency vibrations. As the first stage of the 180 nm standard CMOS circuit, harvested signal is rectified through an ac/dc doubler with active diodes powered internally by a passive ac/dc quadrupler. The voltage is boosted in the second stage through a low voltage charge pump stimulated by an on-chip ring osc...

Sharifian, Mehrnaz; Niroomand, Mehdi (2011-09-10)
This paper describes design considerations and performance analysis of a novel on-line singlephase to three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) with reduced number of switches. The proposed topology uses only 5 active switches reducing the cost of the system compared to the traditional 10-switch topologies. The proposed UPS consists of a single-phase rectifier/charger, a hvo-leg/three-phase inverter connected to load, battery hank, DC link capacitor and an AC inductor. Detailed circuit operation and an...

Kantar, Emre; Usluer, S. Nadir; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2013-11-30)
Pulse-width modulation (PWM) voltage source inverters (VSIs) are favorable interface devices to the power grid for renewable energy systems. This paper deals with the design of the LCL-filter and inverter for the grid-connected VSI. A complete design procedure for both reactive and passive components of LCL-filter is demonstrated with a new iterative approach in selection of the filter inductors. The design process for a two-level VSI is clearly illustrated through an example and the dynamic response is inv...
