  • The Automatic Start Up and Shut Down of a Mains Frequency Plasma Torch and its Instrumentation

    This paper describes an automatic control system for the start up and shut down of a 415V., 100kW. mains frequency plasma torch which has been developed [1] at the University of Aston in Birmingham. Instrumentation of the main input and output parameters is provided from a centrally-located panel. In view of the large power to be controlled, it is essential that the cooling water and electrical supplies are switched in the correct order both when starting up and shutting down, and the protection requirements necessitate ``fail-safe'' operation of the control gear under fault conditions. This automatic operation represents a significant improvement upon the original control system, which was manually operated. A closed-loop control of the outlet temperature by regulating the air flow is described elsewhere [2]. Measurements of the efficiency of the torch in converting electrical energy to heat have also been published [3].

  • Peripheral Adaption Power Cell Network for High Efficiency and High Linearity Power Amplifier

    This letter presents a smart power cell network design with peripheral adaption technique in a 2 μm GaAs HBT process. A distributed input matching circuit accompanying individual power cells, each with its own pre-determined emitter ballast resistor is used in power cell network to perform power adaption operation. The power cell network is optimized to further enhance efficiency especially at very low output power range with substantial linearity improvement over an entire output power range. Compared to traditional power cells used in power amplifier, the new design shows an increase of PAE by at least 5% and improvement of IMD3 by 10 dB at 2.4 GHz with 600 KHz frequency spacing in measurement. The fabricated PA achieves a saturated output power of 32 dBm with PAE of 48%, and its IMD3 is lower than -30 dB up to 30 dBm output power.

  • What'S New in the UPS Field?

    The electronic processing market is a rapidly growing market, the number of main frame computers as well as mini and micro computers is ever increasing. Since sensitivity of all types of computers to interruptions in the power supply has not decreased, it remains a must to ensure an Uninterrupted Power Supply. The UPS requirement is increasing in the area of industrial electronic plant e.g. controllable drives, electronic control gear and monitoring systems etc. In addition both data communication systems and medical equipment must be supplied without interruption. However, the technical requirements for UPS have partially changed. The power demands of critical loads and the tolerance requirements of both voltage and frequency constancy have changed. Demands for high reliability and efficiency with more compact construction have, however, remained unchanged. New components, new knowledge of the use of existing components, and new or modified system philosophies have led to recent interesting system solutions.

  • Experience with aging and humidity tests according to IEC Report 932

    The aim, object and first experiences with this report are presented. IEC Report 932 aims at classifying medium voltage indoor switchgear and control gear. Three design classes (0, 1 and 2) corresponding with three degrees of severity of service conditions with regard to condensation and pollution have been defined. First investigations have been carried out at the HV-Laboratory of Technical University of Darmstadt by using a medium voltage switchgear model. Additionally, some investigations at real switchgear panels have been performed. These investigations showed that the tightness of the switchgear enclosure with regard to the penetration of the outer climate is of primary importance. Using partial discharge and leakage current measurement as diagnostic tools in the so-called "penetration test" is an intelligent test procedure. However, some problems with regard to suitable hardware facilities have still to be solved. Modification of IEC Report 932 for applications on dry type power transformers is of interest. First testing experiences are reported.

  • Microcontrolled electronic gear for HID lamps comparisons with electromagnetic ballast

    This paper presents an electronic control gear for high intensity discharge (HID) lamps that operates with a low frequency current inverter to drive the lamp, a DC-DC buck converter to control the power and lamp current, and a power factor pre-regulator based on a discontinuous conduction mode boost converter. The signals of all power stages are provided by a dedicated microcontroller. An overview of the lamp operation phases, the strategies to avoid acoustic resonance in the electronic ballast and the operation of electromagnetic ballasts are mentioned. A 70 W prototype without acoustic resonance and stroboscope effect was implemented and the results of the proposed electronic ballast and a conventional one are compared.

  • A physics-based model for HID lamps with rectifying effect

    Rectifying effect will appear in most high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps at the end of their lives, which would lead to overloading of the lamp control gear (ballast, transformer and starting device). Therefore, adequate protective measures should be taken to ensure the safety under this condition. According to the mechanism of rectifying effect, the simulation model of rectifying effect is built through SIMULINK/MATLAB platform which will play a crucial role for further studying rectifying effect on the impact of the lighting system and establishing the corresponding standards.
