Firstly, the three main dimming methods that have been identified by the authors such as enable dimming, shunt dimming and series dimming will be briefly commented.

The dimming control loop of this technique will be presented, as well as the laboratory tests performed, obtaining good results in terms of dimming ratio, harmonic content of the input current and power factor.

  • Proposal of ultra high efficient energy conversion system (HEECS) for electric vehicle power train

    Recently, vehicles such as hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and electric vehicle (EV) are actively researched. This paper focuses on EV with a DC-DC converter. EV is inefficient as the battery supplies all power through the DC-DC converter all the time. This paper proposes a high efficient energy conversion system (HEECS) using two batteries: a main battery and a sub battery. The main battery supplies fundamental power without passing through the DC-DC converter. The sub battery supplies additional power through the DC-DC converter. High efficiency of 99.6 % was experimentally confirmed in this paper. Proposed high efficient energy conversion system (HEECS) makes it possible to improve the running distance per charge of EV.

  • Single-Switch Offline Ballast With PFC for Low-Wattage Metal Halide Lamps

    This paper proposes a novel complete electronic ballast for low-wattage metal halide (LWMH) lamps. The lamp driver is based on the integration of a flyback power factor correction (PFC) input stage and a buck-boost inverter stage. The resulting circuit supplies the lamps with a high-frequency (HF) square current waveform, operating from the mains facility. The main feature of the proposed ballast is that through an adequate integration of the stages, the circuit operates with only one controlled switch. This switch is shared by the active PFC input stage, by the output HF inverter stage, as well as by the igniter. The control of the ballast is carried out by adjusting the maximum current through the switch and by fixing the duty ratio. Thus, the resulting output characteristic is suitable for a proper operation of these discharge lamps, including ignition, warm-up stage, and steady-state operation. The obtained HF square waveforms in the lamp avoid the apparition of acoustic resonances. A complete prototype has been built and tested, and experimental results are shown.

  • LED Series Current Regulator Based on a Modified Class-E Resonant Inverter

    This paper presents a new topology based on a modified class-E resonant inverter used as an LED series current regulator. The proposed topology behaves as a controllable nondissipative impedance that adjusts the current flowing through the lamp. In this circuit, the LED is placed at the dc side of the class-E inverter, in series with the input filter inductance. The power handled by the ac side is sent back to the input by means of two diodes. Despite the addition of these two diodes, the converter maintains all the advantages of the class-E inverter: low component count, simple control, and extremely low switching losses. The LED current can be controlled with a small variation of the operating frequency. This way, the low-frequency current ripple of the lamp can be strongly reduced even when there is a considerably high input voltage excursion, such as the one expected in electrolyticless high-power-factor LED ballast. This paper proposes a simplified methodology based on the fundamental approach aiming to design and build a laboratory prototype. The prototype is designed in order to minimize the effect of LED voltage in the output current. This way, the input voltage ripple can be canceled using a simple feedforward control.

  • Fluorescent lamp characterization automated data acquisition system

    The data acquisition process is an important step in the development of device models, and usually requires large amounts of time. Besides, since it is a process controlled by a scientist, it is subject to human errors. The automation of this process by a configurable system removes the human error factor and does not require full time attention from the scientist. These drawbacks are more evident when a device has to be modeled under various conditions, has a slow thermal response or a large database of various models has to be built. In this scope, the objective of this paper is to present the structure and results of an automated data acquisition system for fluorescent lamps. The aim of this system is to generate a database, which will be used in further studies of universal electronic ballasts.

  • Sliding Mode Controller Based on a Linear Quadratic Integral Regulator Surface for Power Control on a Dual Active Bridge Converter

    Dual Active Bridge (DAB) converters are efficient energy conversion systems that require robust control algorithms. The wide implementation of DAB converters in electrical applications such as power generation, power distribution and energy management shows the great potential in electrical energy conversion. The DAB converter topology consists in the interface of two single-phase power converter bridges through a high frequency transformer, which allows DAB converter to reach different power rates. DAB converters have several advantages respect to conventional electromechanical transformers, such as: electrical energy efficiency, low size and weight. This paper proposes a Sliding Mode Controller (SMC) with integral linear quadratic surface to regulate power distribution by changing the phase shift between the primary and secondary commutations of the semiconductors in each bridge. In order to test the SMC performance on robustness, load variation and reference tracking tests are applied. The SMC operation is evaluated through the criterion of the Integral of the Absolute value of the Error (IAE) and conclusions are developed from analysis of results.
