In this paper the utilization of uninterruptible- power-supplies (UPS) in fuel-cell-vehicles is proposed. FCVs can take advantage of UPS for several purposes. It has been shown that fuel cell systems prefer constant load in order to operate reliably and with extended life time. At times when FCV load suddenly changes (e.g., acceleration, breaking) the condition of constant load on a ...

  • Uninterruptible Power Supplies for Fuel-Cell-Vehicles

    In this paper the utilization of uninterruptible- power-supplies (UPS) in fuel-cell-vehicles is proposed. FCVs can take advantage of UPS for several purposes. It has been shown that fuel cell systems prefer constant load in order to operate reliably and with extended life time. At times when FCV load suddenly changes (e.g., acceleration, breaking) the condition of constant load on a fuel cell system is violated. Therefore UPS can be utilized to supply and sink portions of the load that might otherwise damage the fuel cell system. This paper reports design of an uninterruptible power system for vehicles. This work to a great degree is experimental and it demonstrates the feasibility of utilizing UPS in fuel-cell-vehicles.

  • Parameters and States Estimation with Linear Quadratic Regulator Applied to Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)

    This paper presents a control strategy applied for UPS with a low commutation frequency. An adaptive linear quadratic controller (LQR) for a DC/AC converter is presented. The controller gains are determined by minimizing a cost function. A recursive least square (RLS) estimator is used to identify the parameters model at different load conditions. The inductor current is estimated by a Kalman filter. The capacitor voltage and the inductor current are used as state variables. Simulation results show that the proposed strategy offers good performances for either linear and non-linear loads with low total harmonic distortions even at low frequencies making it very useful for high power applications

  • Electrical performance test procedure for uninterruptible power supplies

    This paper will elaborate electrical performance test procedure for uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). The focus will be pointed to on-line one-phase UPS up to 3000 VA nominal output power that are mostly used for protection computer equipment. But the test procedure can be applied to three- phase UPS or off-line and line-interactive UPS and also for more powerful UPS. Test procedures are based on relevant standards (IEC 62040-3 31-Mar-1999: uninterruptible power systems (UPS)-Part 3: "method of specifying the performance and test requirements"; CSA C813.1-01: "performance test method for uninterruptible power supplies"; ...), but all those mentioned standards have international restrictions and they are applicable only for domestic use in some countries. This paper will propose unique test procedure only for electrical performances of UPS that can be applicable worldwide. In this paper it is excluded other UPS performances like noise, heating, weight, and other. Electrical performances that are observed are: input current total harmonic distortion (THDI), output voltage total harmonic distortion (THDU), input efficiency, output efficiency and autonomy time. It will be given electrical schema for testing each performance. Total harmonic distortion of current and efficiency will be distinguished for linear and nonlinear load. It will be given simple electrical schema for simulation nonlinear load. Total harmonic distortion of voltage will be distinguished for case when AC power is present and case when there is no AC power and battery starts to provide power for load. This paper will describe possible power problems (also power quality) in the electrical network and from which problems each UPS protect its load. Paper will present test results for almost twenty different UPS (power range form 500 VA to 3000 VA; and from different manufacturers).

  • Harmonics in DC to AC converters of single phase uninterruptible power supplies

    Single phase uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) employ an inverter for DC to AC conversion. Advanced inverters consist of a full bridge transistor topology and an LC filter. An optimal inverter performance can be achieved if the output voltage is controlled by unipolar pulse width modulation (PWM). The paper describes the influence of the unipolar PWM on the voltages and the current within the inverter. Both frequency domain and time domain are used to evaluate the most important harmonics as well as peak and RMS values of the current and voltage ripple. This results in general equations suitable for the inverter design. In addition, two PWM schemes are compared with respect to EMI problems. Finally, measurements are presented which confirm the theoretical work.

  • Surge protection capabilities of uninterruptible power supplies

    This paper investigates the effectiveness of uninterruptible power supplies for providing protection against power surges to the load they serve-a group of interconnected personal computers (PCs). The surges simulated include the most common ones: surges due to lightning and capacitor switching, and fast transients due to operation of nearby end-use devices. Test results indicate that the protection depends very much on the type of the UPS.

  • Implementation of supercapacitors in uninterruptible power supplies

    The given paper deals with uninterruptible power supplies with supercapacitors. Parameters of the supercapacitors and common lead-acid batteries are compared. Various opportunities of supercapacitor implementation into the uninterruptible power supplies are discussed, pros and cons are analyzed. Initial numerical comparison of energy capacity for these devices is done. Experimental testing of the supercapacitors and batteries as energy sources for a boost converter has also been made.

  • Control of UPS inverters

    Many applications of UPS systems require sinusoidal outputs at frequencies ranging from 50 Hz to 400 Hz. Important performance specifications for such systems include voltage regulation, total harmonic distortion, output impedance, transient response and operation with nonlinear loads. The most significant factors affecting the overall performance of the system are the power converter topology and the control or modulation strategy used. The most popular approach for realising such converters is through the use of voltage source DC link inverters operated with an LC output filter. The inverter is typically operated with a pulse width modulated strategy under feedback control to realise the desired output waveform. The output power rating and the output distortion specifications are generally used as the basis for the choice of switching frequency and LC filter size. The regulation quality of the output voltage is arguably the most important specification of the UPS system. Regulation quality will depend on the control strategy used. This paper reviews the analogue and digital control strategies used for realising sinusoidal ouput UPS systems.<<ETX>>

  • UPS specifications &amp;amp; performance

    Many UPS systems do not perform as their purchasers intended leading to unreliability, expensive investigation of deficiencies and even litigation. The technical reasons are often a failure to appreciate and incorporate in the tender the system requirements: classically the nature of the typical nonlinear load causes many problems. For example, the paper shows how these waveforms can be defined and interpreted for performance against UPS specifications. UPS are needed where the loss of power can cause loss greater than the UPS cost, where safety and the law require a high integrity of supply, and where wind/solar installations need energy storage for continuity of supply. Some of these applications can stand short discontinuities whilst contactors operate or even longer for stator engine driven generators. In this review the classical UPS is examined with the inverter feeding the load and a static bypass is always available.<<ETX>>
