  • Multisystem Rolling Stocks

    Multisystem rolling stocks employs a traditional configuration for the input stage, which is based on the line frequency transformer and four‐quadrant converters that are tuned to comply with electromagnetic compatibility standards. It is necessary to run the main transformer with different voltage levels and different frequencies, as well as use it as an inductor in the systems. This chapter focuses on the operation of the following multilevel transformers: multivoltage and multifrequency transformers and power electronic traction transformers (PETTs). Multilevel structures allow higher voltage to be adopted in DC section, achieving the goal of increasing the transmittable power with equal transmission losses. The chapter then considers two boost converters whose absorbed current waves have a phase shift of a generic angle. The logical choice for controlling the 4Q converter follows current tracking logic, for which the modulation index m does not appear directly in the control algorithm.

  • The Finite-Difference Time Domain Method for Solving Maxwell's Equations

    This chapter gives update equations for electric and magnetic fields used in the 3D-finite-difference time domain (FDTD) computation and those in the 2D cylindrical coordinate system. The FDTD method uses the central difference approximation to Maxwell's curl equations, which are Faraday's law and Ampere's law, in the time domain. The chapter then describes subgridding technique, which allows one to employ locally finer grids. Next, it explains an absorbing boundary condition, which is needed for the analysis of electromagnetic fields in an unbounded space. There are two types of absorbing boundary conditions, namely differential-based absorbing boundary condition and material-based absorbing boundary condition. Representations of lumped sources and lumped circuit elements such as a resistor, an inductor, and a capacitor are described. Also, representations of a thin-wire conductor and the lightning return-stroke channel are discussed. Finally, representation of a nonlinear element such as a surge arrester is explained.

  • Forensic Radio Surveys for Cell Site Analysis

    Cell site analysis is designed to enable an investigator to determine whether calls made at or around the time of an incident or offence used cells that are located near the location of that offence. Forensic radio surveys are designed to provide solid evidence to back up the assumptions made by investigators and cell site analysts. Forensic radio survey equipment captures details of the cells that can be detected at a location and can indicate which cells would be selected for use by a phone being used at those locations. Forensic radio surveys add empirical rigour to an area of investigation that would otherwise fall prey to assumptions and wishful thinking. Cell site analysis, based on a combination of call detail record (CDR), cell location details and forensic radio survey results, can provide compelling evidence to support the allegations made by investigators.

  • Future Trends

    The parameter optimization for single-phase quasi-Z-source inverters (qZSI) is still an open topic owing to its superior advantages and widespread applications. This chapter presents the future trends of impedance source inverters/converters. A general expectation was demonstrated in terms of the volume and size reduction by applying wide band gap devices; minimization and optimization of impedance source network parameters for the single-phase qZS inverter topology being used as an independent power system and submodule in CMI; novel control methods, especially the MPC to improve the system performance; and future applications for high-power renewable energy power conversion. A comparison of ZSI using traditional Si devices and silicon carbide (SiC) wide band gap devices is further illustrated, verifying the superiority of cooperating modern semiconductor technique. This chapter has mainly provided a technical insight into the future research and development of impedance source inverters/converters.

  • Silicon Carbide High Temperature Electronics - Is This Rocket Science?

    This chapter contains sections titled: * Introduction * Advantages of SiC Electronics * Exploration of Venus * Proposed System for Venus Lander * Results * Conclusion ]]>

  • Unipolar and Bipolar Power Diodes

    In this chapter we discuss the most basic power devices: Schottky barrier diodes, pin diodes, and JBS (junction barrier controlled Schottky)/MPS (merged pin Schottky) diodes. We begin by introducing unipolar and bipolar figures-of- merit to characterize device performance. We then consider the physical processes within each device and develop useful design equations, invoking the ambipolar diffusion equation to describe high-level injection in bipolar diodes.

  • General Principles and Basic Algorithms for Full-duplex Transmission

    This chapter studies full-duplex technology from the perspective of signal- processing algorithms and implementation. It explains full-duplex system requirements, self-interference, and self-interference cancellation (SIC) techniques and the related algorithms and implementation challenges. The chapter also shows the current achievements, from SISO, in order to treat the problem from the basics, to MIMO, which still needs further development. SIC techniques in a full-duplex SISO system are classified into four main categories: passive SI suppression in the propagation domain, active SIC in the analog domain, active SIC in the digital domain and auxiliary chain SIC. The required cancellation has to meet certain requirements related to the system specifications, such as the full scale of the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and noise-floor level. Full-duplex technology offers the potential to participate in the evolution of 5G, and it leads the way toward new mobile generations that have higher capacity, more efficiency and optimal performance.

  • Bulk Growth of Silicon Carbide

    Bulk crystal growth is essential for producing single-crystal wafers, the base material for device fabrication. Continued progress in SiC device development relies on the availability of large SiC wafers with high crystal quality. At present, the standard technique for SiC bulk growth is the seeded sublimation (or modified Lely) method, but a few alternative growth techniques have also been studied. This chapter describes the fundamental aspects of SiC bulk growth and the associated technology development.

  • Characterization Techniques and Defects in Silicon Carbide

    Characterization of the physical properties, doping densities, and defects in SiC is a fundamental tool in the development of SiC devices. Measurement of physical properties and identification of defect structures are important subjects of academic study. It is important to understand the various defects in SiC because many of them can adversely affect device performance and reliability. In this chapter we describe the fundamental material characterization techniques and present an overview of extended and point defects in SiC.

  • Specialized Silicon Carbide Devices and Applications

    The unique characteristics of SiC make it attractive for a variety of applications that are not well served by existing silicon technology. One such application is high-power, moderate-frequency microwave amplifiers and power sources based on devices such as MESFETs (metal-semiconductor field-effect transistors), static induction transistors (SITs), and IMPATT (impact ionization avalanche transit-time) diodes. Another important application involves high-temperature integrated circuits for sensing and control, where SiC bipolar and JFET (junction field-effect transistor) integrated circuits are the preferred implementations. A major emerging opportunity for SiC lies in the area of sensors for hostile environments. Developments to date include MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical sensor) devices for motion sensors, gas sensors for combustion control, and solar-blind UV optical detectors. In each area we describe the application requirements, highlight the advantages of SiC, and report the current status of SiC technology.
