  • Common Techniques and Applications of Multi‐terminal High‐voltage Converters

    Similar to the structure of the modular multilevel converter (MMC), the multi‐terminal high‐voltage converters are stacked up with a large number of identical sub‐modules (SMs). When the arm current is positive, a certain number of SMs with the lowest voltages are identified and switched on or inserted. When the arm current is negative, the SMs with the highest voltages are identified and switched on. In the closed‐loop control, the capacitor voltage of each SM is sampled and compared with the command capacitor voltage, then the charging and discharging time of each capacitor is decided to make the individual capacitor voltage follow its command. The chapter presents the capacitor voltage balancing schemes for several multi‐terminal high‐voltage converters. It provides some application frameworks based on multi‐terminal converters in which multiple wind turbines can deliver energy to the AC or DC bus, and multiple industrial motors can be driven by a single AC or DC power source.

  • Single‐Input Multiple‐Output High‐voltage DC–AC Converters

    This chapter proposes several novel single‐phase/three‐phase DC‐AC converters with two or more outputs, in order to satisfy the requirement of multiple AC outputs in some high‐voltage high‐power applications. It describes the circuit topology and operating principle. The chapter provides the carrier phase‐shifted sinusoidal pulse‐width modulation (CPS‐SPWM) scheme which is applied to the proposed converters, and the simulation waveforms to prove the feasibility of the proposed multiple‐output high‐voltage DC‐AC converters. It also proposes different kinds of single‐input multiple‐output high‐voltage DC‐AC inverter with the following characteristics. Two or more single‐phase/three‐phase AC outputs can be obtained; output frequencies can be identical or different; the switching arm is made up of NSMs, and the output voltage of the converter has multiple levels and low harmonics; and voltage stress of each power switch in the sub‐module (SM) is only UDC/N.

  • Multiple‐Bridge‐Module High‐voltage Converters

    The modular multilevel converter (MMC) has gained in popularity, especially in high‐voltage direct current (HVDC) and flexible alternating current transmission systems (FACTS). Similar to the structure of the MMC, a novel high‐voltage converter named the multiple‐bridge‐module converter (MBMC) is put forward for the first time by connecting the bridge modules in series. This chapter discusses the topological structure, operating principle, and control scheme of the different kinds of MBMC. It illustrates the single‐phase half‐bridge module (SP‐HBM), which includes two half‐bridge cells and one common capacitor CBM; the single‐phase full‐bridge module (SP‐FBM); the three‐phase full‐bridge module (TP‐FBM); and the three‐phase four‐leg full‐bridge module (TPFL‐FBM). The chapter shows that the structure of the single‐phase half‐bridge‐module DC‐AC converter is similar to the proposed three‐phase half‐bridge‐module DC‐AC converter. By replacing the half‐bridge modules with the full‐bridge ones, full‐bridge‐module high‐voltage converters can be built.

  • Multiple‐Input Single‐Output High‐voltage AC–DC Converters

    In the high‐voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission system, there are several AC input sources which need to be converted to DC form; the common solution is to apply one AC‐DC converter for each AC source and then connect all of the DC output sides together. In order to simplify the structure of the whole system, this chapter proposes a series of AC‐DC converters with multiple AC inputs and single DC output. In order to avoid using high‐voltage capacitors in the topology, the single‐phase 2M‐arm multiple‐input single‐output AC‐DC converter can be constructed by replacing the series capacitors with switching arms. If the input voltage sources are in three‐phase form, then the three‐phase multiple‐input single‐output AC‐DC converter can be constructed by adding one general phase unit to the single‐phase 2M‐arm AC‐DC converter.

  • Multiple‐terminal High‐voltage Hybrid Converters

    Renewable energy sources, combined with energy storage systems and/or utility grids, can deliver continuous power to the loads. Thus, it is predicted that a hybrid converter is able to interconnect various energy sources and loads with fewer converter stages and higher energy efficiency. This chapter focuses on the configuration of the multiple‐terminal hybrid converter with single DC output. In order to construct a hybrid converter with both AC and DC inputs, the chapter explains the single‐phase six‐arm dual‐input single‐output AC‐DC converter. The feasibility of the proposed six‐arm hybrid converter will be proven by the simulation results. If the AC input voltage source of the hybrid converter is three‐phase, based on the nine arms AC‐DC converter, the nine‐arm hybrid converter with three‐phase AC input can be obtained by connecting one group of end points to three DC voltage source. The chapter illustrates the multiple‐arm hybrid converter with single‐phase and three‐phase AC input.

  • Multiple‐terminal High‐voltage DC–DC Converters

    In many power electronic applications ranging from renewable energy systems to electric vehicles, and laptop power supplies, energy transfer between multiple sources, loads, and energy storage components may be required. In order to effectively adapt to this energy system architecture, multi‐terminal DC‐DC converter topologies provide a more cost‐effective solution. This chapter illustrates the proposed single‐input dual‐output DC‐DC converter by taking the phase unit defined in the multi‐terminal high‐voltage converters as a single converter. It also illustrates the single‐input multiple‐output DC‐DC converter and multiple‐input multiple‐output DC‐DC converter. In order to verify the proposed multiple‐input multiple‐output DC‐DC converter and its operating condition, a topology with four switching arms is used as an example. The chapter shows the dual‐input dual‐output DC‐DC converter and lists simulation parameters with different terminal voltages.

  • Resilient Architecture Design for Voltage Variation

    Shrinking feature size and diminishing supply voltage are making circuits sensitive to supply voltage fluctuations within the microprocessor, caused by normal workload activity changes. If left unattended, voltage fluctuations can lead to timing violations or even transistor lifetime issues that degrade processor robustness. Mechanisms that learn to tolerate, avoid, and eliminate voltage fluctuations based on program and microarchitectural events can help steer the processor clear of danger, thus enabling tighter voltage margins that improve performance or lower power consumption. We describe the problem of voltage variation and the factors that influence this variation during processor design and operation. We also describe a variety of runtime hardware and software mitigation techniques that either tolerate, avoid, and/or eliminate voltage violations. We hope processor architects will find the information useful since tolerance, avoidance, and elimination are generalizable constructs that can serve as a basis for addressing other reliability challenges as well.

  • Short‐Circuit Protection for High‐voltage Converters

    The modular multilevel converter (MMC) has become the most attractive converter topology for high‐voltage direct‐current (HVDC) transmission systems because of its modularity and scalability. Thus, one of the major challenges associated with MMC‐HVDC systems is the capability to handle DC‐side short‐circuit faults. This chapter discusses three short‐circuit protection schemes for the proposed multi‐terminal high‐voltage converters, according to the DC fault solutions of the MMC‐HVDC system. It introduces a novel modular DC circuit breaker (CB) which makes use of the structure of the switching arm. The chapter analyses the several typical kinds of sub‐module (SM) with DC fault‐handling capability which can replace HBSMs in the multi‐terminal high‐voltage converters. It proposes the feasible architectures of a hybrid multi‐terminal high‐voltage converter with short‐circuit protection feature.

  • Multiple‐Input Multiple‐Output High‐voltage AC–AC Converters

    A multiple‐input multiple‐output high‐voltage AC‐AC converter will be useful in situations with several AC inputs or outputs. By using the multiple‐input multiple‐output AC‐AC converter, several wind turbine generators can share one converter, which results in reduced switching components and simplified system structure. This chapter introduces the single‐input single‐output AC‐AC converter, which is a special case of the multi‐terminal AC‐AC converter to describe the operating principle of the proposed structure. It discusses the single‐phase and three‐phase multiple‐input multiple‐output converters. The chapter provides the carrier phase‐shifted sinusoidal pulse‐width modulation (CPS‐SPWM) scheme which has been applied to the proposed converter, and the simulation wave forms to verify the feasibility of the proposed high‐voltage AC‐AC converter. The unique characteristics of the proposed converter include that no high‐voltage DC link capacitor is needed and only one converter is used, which will be suitable for the multi‐terminal high‐voltage AC systems.

  • Overview of High‐voltage Converters

    A large number of multilevel converters can be found on the generation side, transmission side, and distribution side of a smart grid. In order to propose the architecture of a multi‐terminal high‐voltage converter, this chapter reviews the development of a high‐voltage high‐power converter. It introduces several typical multilevel converter sand common control schemes for multilevel converters. The chapter also reviews the several classic multilevel converter topologies for the understanding of multilevel converter technology. Multilevel converters present great advantages compared with conventional two‐level converters; the improved quality and reduced total harmonic distortion (THD) of the output wave forms make multilevel converters very attractive to the industry. The chapter describes the modulation methods for multilevel converters. It also presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book.
