  • Design of Z-Source and Quasi-Z-Source Inverters

    Inductance and capacitance are the two main parameters to be designed in the Z-source/quasi-Z-source inverter. This chapter focuses on the network parameters, loss calculations, voltage and current stress, coupled inductor of Z-source/quasi-Z source inverters and also efficiency, cost, and volume, in comparison to the conventional inverter. For three-phase qZSI, the inductor and capacitor should be designed to limit the switching frequency current and voltage ripple. However, for single-phase qZSI, the double line-frequency ripple will be the main concern for design of the inductor and capacitor, because larger inductance and capacitance are required to limit the switching frequency ripple. The total loss consists of those of the H-bridge device, qZS diode, inductor, and capacitor of qZS network. The voltage and current stresses depend on the modulation methods. The presented modeling, circuit analysis, and power loss evaluation provided an illustration for the future building and development of impedance source inverters/converters.

  • Hardware¿¿¿in¿¿¿the¿¿¿Loop Systems with Power Electronics: A Powerful Simulation Tool

    The chapter points out that sequential switching is not only applicable to IGBT modules with integrated diodes mounted closely on a heat sink, but also to complete industrial standard two¿¿¿level voltage source inverters (VSIs). Thus, the power capability and the overall switching frequency of these products can be increased by using several of them in parallel with sequential switching. Using this approach, a novel electrical test bench for drive inverters can be set up with a minimum effort on design and development. This provides an alternative for manufacturers of drive inverters to test their complete product range under real power levels without the requirement for a multitude of real machines.The discussion provided in the chapter proves that the so called virtual machine (VM) is a Hardware¿¿¿in¿¿¿the¿¿¿Loop system allowing an inverter to be tested at real power levels without the need for installing and operating real machines. The VM has the same characteristics as a real induction motor or even a synchronous motor. Different machines and their respective load conditions can be emulated by software, which means that the drive inverter under test can operate in its normal mode (as usual). No modification has to be done to the inverter or to the control unit.

  • Narrow¿¿¿Width Single¿¿¿Phase Power Rail (I¿¿¿type)

    In this chapter, an advanced version of on¿¿¿line electric vehicles (OLEVs) is introduced as an introductory example of road¿¿¿powered electric vehicles (RPEVs). Because the author is heavily involved in the development of OLEVs, this chapter will guide readers to how practical problems are dealt with. This chapter is based on the paper by J. Huh, S.W. Lee, W.Y. Lee, G.H. Cho, and C.T. Rim, ¿¿¿Narrow¿¿¿width inductive power transfer system for on¿¿¿line electrical vehicles,¿¿¿ _IEEE Trans. on Power Electronics_, vol. 26, no. 12, pp. 3666¿¿¿3679, December 2011.The inductive power transfer system (IPTS) with a narrow rail width, a small pick¿¿¿up size, and a large airgap is explained, as an extension of previous research on OLEVs, in this chapter. By introducing a new core structure, the orientation of the magnetic flux alternates along with the road; hence, an inductive power transfer system with a narrow rail width of 10 cm, a large airgap of 20 cm, and a large lateral displacement of about 24 cm was implemented. The resonant circuit of the inductive power transfer system, driven by a current source, was fully characterized. The experimental results showed that the maximum output power was 35 kW and that the maximum efficiency was 74% at 27 kW.

  • Periodic Synthesized Transmission Lines with Two¿¿¿Dimensional Routing

    In this chapter, a new sort of one¿¿¿dimensional periodic synthesized transmission lines with two¿¿¿dimensional routing capability is introduced using the printed circuit board (PCB) technology. The fundamental building block is a square unit cell composed of crossed conducting strips and metallic pads interleaved between strips. Two out of the four conducting strips are selected as the input/output ports, making the design fulfill two¿¿¿dimensional layout routing. The periodic cells are etched on the signal traces to function as transmission lines with low¿¿¿pass nature, while those in the PBG are designed to cover the entire ground plane and serve mainly as a bandgap structure. The quarter¿¿¿wavelength periodic synthesized lines are then applied to realize a number of dividers and couplers, including a Wilkinson power divider, branch¿¿¿line coupler, rat¿¿¿race coupler, and broadside¿¿¿coupled directional coupler. Finally, on¿¿¿chip implementation on the integrated passive device (IPD) substrate is introduced and analyzed.


    The study of electrical machines is a classic subject in electrical engineering and usually involves the understanding of transformers and rotating devices. Several simulation programs can give a good platform to help the electrical engineer to find a reasonable solution with quite accurate loading predictions and minimum costs. This chapter gives the foundations of this subject that might be very important for students, engineers, and designers to work through a model based on a simulation design approach. There are two simple ways of simulating an induction machine (IM) in PSIM: either using an equivalent circuit PSIM block made up with electrical components or using the premade equivalent block that can be embedded in the electrical circuit simulation. Some types of rotating loads demand for a good speed control. In laboratory tests, it is very common to use a DC motor driving a loaded self¿¿¿excited induction generator (SEIG) to keep constant its load frequency.

  • Applications in Photovoltaic Power Systems

    Z-source/quasi-Z-source inverters (ZSI/qZSI) have attracted considerable attention in photovoltaic (PV) power generation applications because of the single-stage power conversion, no dead time between switches of one bridge leg, and the ability to handle wide dc voltage variation from the PV. This chapter discusses this application, including the typical configurations, parameter design, maximum power point tracking (MPPT), and system control methods, as well as some examples. Separate PV power source is an array composed of identical PV panels in parallel and series. The inverter output power is controlled by the MPPT algorithm. A closed-loop control method was addressed for the three-phase qZSI PV system, which could also be extended to other ZSI/qZSI PV systems. Example simulation results were illustrated for the three configurations. The wide DC voltage handling ability of the ZSI/qZSI in single-stage power conversion provided a wide-ranging investigation into current and future PV applications.

  • PEEC Models for Magnetic Material

    Models with magnetic materials can be a part of different interesting partial element equivalent circuit (PEEC) solutions. The chapter deals with magnetically closed loops such that the magnetic part may be treated separately from the rest of the problem. For this class of problems, the solution may result in a simpler model. The chapter considers how such a model is applied in a PEEC environment. In fact, integrating such a part may be very simple since it can be included as circuit models. The second class of problems consists predominantly of magnetic materials, where most of the solution is based on magnetic materials. The key assumption is that the majority of the magnetic flux is in the magnetic material rather than through the air. Since the computation of the reluctance resistance is a key part of the magnetic circuit approach, the chapter gives a specific example for the computation of a piece of magnetic material.

  • Basic Laws of Nature

  • Pulse Forming Lines

    Many applications require energy to be delivered on faster timescales. In this case, the circuit may consist of a high¿¿¿voltage generator and a pulse forming transmission line (PFL) controlled by a closing switch. The high¿¿¿voltage generator, such as a Marx, charges the PFL in microseconds and the output switch discharges the PFL into the load. This chapter provides an insight into mechanisms of transients in the PFLs as well as the equations required for design of various PFL configurations developed to meet specific requirements. It then discusses the salient features of PFL performance parameters such as electrical breakdown, dielectric constant, self¿¿¿discharge time constant, optimum impedance, charging source, and switching techniques. The coaxial pulse forming line can be used in a transmission line pulser. Blumlein PFL geometry enables the production of an output pulse into a matched load equal to the original charging voltage of the line.

  • Other Magnetic Performance Parameters

    This chapter discusses a few magnetic performance parameters. After defining these key parameters, they are evaluated using reluctance and finite-element methods. Their relations with energy and force are also explained. The parameters discussed in the chapter are magnetic flux, flux linkage, inductance, capacitance and impedance.
