  • A Compact Ramp-Based Soft-Start Circuit for Voltage Regulators

    A fully integrated soft-start circuit for voltage regulators is presented in this brief. A soft-start strategy based on a linearly ramped-up reference is adopted to prevent massive in-rush currents through the power device during the start-up phase of the regulator. The strategy is realized by a compact on- chip circuit, which requires no external components and has minimal transistor overhead, thereby minimizing the implementation area and cost of the overall regulator. The proposed soft-start circuit has been implemented in a 0.35-mum high-voltage complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor technology as part of a linear regulator controller for automotive applications. The proposed soft- start circuit occupies 0.026 mm<sup>2</sup> on silicon, which corresponds to about one fifteenth of the total area of the linear regulator controller.

Also, presents a simplified practical method of allocating voltage regulators. In order to test the presented algorithms, the methods are applied to radial distribution systems of 33 and 70 bus found in the literature to verify the efficiency of the presented algorithm.

  • Optimal placement of voltage regulators in distribution systems

    A two-step algorithm for the optimal placement of voltage regulators in distribution systems is presented in this paper. In the first step, voltage regulators are placed (and the tap position is determined) at candidate buses, aiming at minimizing voltage drops and real power losses. In the second step, an attempt to reduce the number of voltage regulators is made, taking into consideration economical aspects (minimization of installation and maintenance costs). It is shown that the proposed algorithm is fast, efficient and provides reliable results.

  • Performance evaluation of CMOS low drop-out voltage regulators

  • Three Single-Phase Voltage Regulators Neutral Grounding Design and Analysis

    This paper aims at developing an analytical model for calculating the worst- case neutral current from three singlephase 12 kV distribution system voltage regulators. In the AEP design, the grounding application for the voltage regulators uses a horizontally-laid copper-bonded ground rod bonding all threephase neutrals together. The ground rod in this arrangement is used as a theft deterrent and addresses a rare but possible safety issue. The selected ground rod must survive the worst-case continuous neutral current rather than the vender's current rating of 180 Amps at a temperature rise of 55°C. A comprehensive laboratory testing of the ground rod based on the calculated worst-case current was conducted. The results prove that the allowable continuous current (180 Amps at a temperature rise of 55°C) for the ground rod can be extended to 260 Amps at a temperature rise of 124°C. The authors hope the analytical model, testing methods and results, and the design can benefit similar voltage regulator applications.

  • A current-limiter-based soft-start scheme for linear and low-dropout voltage regulators

    A soft-start strategy for linear and low-dropout voltage regulators based on a successive current-limiting scheme during the startup phase is presented. The proposed current-limiting scheme incorporates a digitally-programmable mechanism for precisely controlling the current profile of the pass device during the startup transient. The proposed scheme is compact, as it requires no external components and has minimal transistor overhead, thereby minimizing the implementation area and cost of the overall regulator. The proposed soft- start circuit has been developed on a standard 0.35-μm CMOS technology as part of a USB-powered linear regulator for portable power applications.

  • Reliability Centered Maintenance Study on Voltage Regulators

The study produced practical findings and specific recommendations for creating new preventative and predictive maintenance procedures on single-phase voltage regulators.

  • An algorithm for identifying voltage regulators in ECL circuits

    Emitter coupled logic (ECL) circuits are comprised of two types of subcircuits: switching subcircuits and voltage regulators. Switching subcircuits change states according to input changes. Voltage regulators produce a constant reference voltage. A voltage regulator identification algorithm is presented. It first identifies the switching subcircuits and identifies all remaining subcircuits as voltage regulators. The algorithm is independent of the circuit configuration and requires no special pre- processing of a SPICE input file by the user. The circuit is assumed to consist of a ground node (GND), a power supply source (VCC), one or more grounded voltage sources and circuit elements, namely resistors and transistors. No package or VCC and GND parasitics are assumed to be included in the circuit description file. The voltage regulator identification algorithm is analyzed, and its computational complexity is considered.<<ETX>>

  • A System to Simulate the Behavior of Distribution Systems Voltage Regulators with Embedded Software IP Core Control

    This paper proposes a system to simulate the behavior of distribution systems voltage regulators with embedded software IP core control, in Matlab Simulink with Altera DSP builder blocks. This system can be applied for real unbalanced three-phase systems containing three-phase banks of single phase regulators connected in delta or open-delta configurations. For the output voltage adjustment, the signal received from the network will be the output voltage of the PTs and the output signals to the equipment will be the control signals that will act in the tap change motor of each one of the single regulators
