  • Capacitance Phenomena

    The phenomenon of building up a static charge when walking on a carpet illustrates the charge-storing abilities of human body capacitance. Many electronic devices, such as touch-screen displays, touch-sensitive switches, and computer touch pads make use of this property. Capacitors used in electric power applications are typified by the rectangular cans with one or two bushings. When the dielectric materials contain polarized molecules (dipoles), the polarization may be caused by field cancellation from the capacitor plates. In a simple DC circuit, capacitors can be charged through a resistor at an exponential rate. Power capacitors are used in electric power applications mainly for power factor correction and harmonic filters. Filter capacitors cause several electrical hazards, including the risk of electrical shock from a capacitor charged to a high voltage with a high stored energy. The capacitance of a cable is a distributed quantity-the longer the cable, the larger the capacitance.

  • Attenuation Characteristics of Conventional, Micromachined, and Superconducting Coplanar Waveguides

    In this chapter the attenuation characteristics of conventional, micromachined, and superconducting coplanar waveguides are presented. Closed form equations based on the conformal mapping technique, the mode-matching method, and the modified matched asymptotic expansion technique are presented in order to compute the attenuation constant of a coplanar waveguide. Recently silicon (Si) and silicon-germanium (SiGe) based integrated circuits have emerged for RF/microwave applications, and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) based switches and actuators are being explored for potential phased array antenna applications. This chapter examines the attenuation characteristics of coplanar waveguides on CMOS grade low- and high-resistivity silicon wafers, and on micromachined silicon wafers. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the attenuation characteristics of high-temperature superconducting coplanar waveguides.

  • Z-Source DC-DC Converters

    When realized as a dc-dc converter, the introduced Z-source impedance network must similarly be short-circuited for a certain defined duty ratio per switching period. The basic operating principles therefore remain unchanged, except that the rear-end converter bridge is changed to one suitable for performing dc-dc conversion. This chapter introduces a few possible dc-dc Z-source topologies for illustration, but will not move deeper into their mathematics since they are almost the same as for dc-ac inversion. This advantage has also been utilized to design multiple converters operating in parallel to achieve a higher power level and premium power quality along with improved system efficiency. The concept of the shoot-through duty cycle to control the output voltage is ruled out completely by simple control of the duty cycle of the switches. Each of the dc-dc converters mentioned above therefore has its unique advantages and disadvantages, which can make them suitable for certain applications but not others.

  • Development of HVDC Technology

    The development of HVDC transmission system dates back to the 1930s when mercury arc rectifiers were invented. Since the 1960s, HVDC transmission system is now a mature technology and has played a vital part in both long distance transmission and in the interconnection of systems. HVDC transmission systems, when installed, often form the backbone of an electric power system. They combine high reliability with a long useful life. Their core component is the power converter, which serves as the interface to the AC transmission system. The conversion from AC to DC, and vice versa, is achieved by controllable electronic switches (valves) in a 3-phase bridge configuration.

  • Z-Source Matrix Converter

    There are two types of ac-ac conversion systems, the traditional ac-dc-ac converter and the matrix converter (MC). The traditional ac-dc-ac converter consists of a pulse width modulation (PWM) boost rectifier and a PWM inverter with dc-link bus. This chapter presents an updated overview of the different Z-source matrix converter topologies including the Z-source indirect matrix converter (ZSIMC), with its all-silicon and not all-silicon configurations, and also the Z-source direct matrix converter (ZSDMC). A new control method has been proposed to increase the operating voltage range of an indirect matrix converter based motor drive, while at the same time guaranteeing unitary input power factor. The QZSMC topologies overcome the voltage gain limitation of the traditional MC and achieve buck and boost conditions with a reduced number of switches, therefore achieving low cost, high efficiency, and reliability compared to the back-to-back converter.
