  • Computer-aided design of switching regulators

    A unified static analysis is presented for the four basic switching regulator configurations: the buck, the boost, the single-winding, and the double- winding buck-boost. This analysis serves as a basis for a systematic design method that has been implemented as a conversational computer-aided design program that enables an unskilled operator to choose and design the switching regulator that is best adapted to his particular problem.

  • Development of a control system for a high-performance self-commutated AC/DC converter

    A self-commutated AC/DC converter composed of controlled turn-off devices to be applied to future system interconnection is described. The advantages of a control system for this type of converter are: (1) commutation does not fail when the system voltage is decreased or distorted by a power system fault; (2) it needs no equipment for reactive power supply, such as static capacitors or synchronous rotating condensers, when used in a low short-circuit capacity power system; and (3) it can independently control active power through DC lines and reactive power from each terminal. The proposed back-to-back (BTB) control system using the voltage margin method was verified with a simulator, and the results demonstrated the excellent features of the high-performance self-commutated converter.

In this paper is described an alternative control scheme based in "support vector machines" (SVM). SVM are algorithms of emergent computation that have demonstrated an excellent acting in classification and regression applications.

  • A three-phase grid-connected PV system

    This work deals with the design and laboratory implementation of a static converter for grid connected PV power systems. The converter is made zip of a DC-DC boost structure controlled by a neural network and a three-phase voltage source inverter (VSI) with optimised sinusoidal PWM strategy. The DC-DC boost converter allows the PV system to operate at maximum power point. The three- phase VSI provides the necessary voltage and frequency for interconnection to the grid. The optimised switching strategy used guarantees harmonics elimination at the VSI output voltage up to the 17/sup th/ harmonic. The DC-DC and DC-AC structures use IGBT as power switches, and the system control signals are generated by a 80X51 microcontroller-based circuit Experimental results are shown to access the performance of the system PV system and its behaviour at the interconnection point.

  • Very efficient two-input DC-to-DC switching post-regulators

    A study of the two-input post-regulators is carried out in this paper. In these post-regulators, only a part of the total power undergoes a switching conversion process, whereas the remainder of the power comes up to the load directly, with no power conversion process. Due to this fact, very high efficiency is achieved. Moreover, the stress in the semiconductors and the filter size are both much lower than in standard post-regulators. Two-input post-regulators require two-output main converters. However, many converter topologies can be easily adapted to supply two output voltages with no efficiency penalty. Two-input post-regulators can be used in many power converters. Multiple-output DC-to-DC converters and AC-to-DC power factor correctors are two good examples.

  • A new type of DC-DC converter for rolling stock auxiliary power supply

    Conventionally, the static converter used for rolling stock auxiliary power supply has power circuit topology as well as half bridge converter, resonant half bridge converter and its variant, and buck converter. To solve the problem of requirements for high voltage static switch rating, serially connected flyback converter, and serially connected 3-phase inverter are commonly used. Thyristors and GTO thyristors are widely used for the static switch, thus the switching frequency can not be too high. In this paper, a new method DC to DC converter based on standard half bridge DC to AC converter is presented. This kind of converter can be used in high voltage applications such as auxiliary power supply for rolling stock. This converter has a significant advantage compared to the half and full bridge converter. The proposed converter is verified by experimental results.

  • Analysis of leakage-inductance effect on characteristics of flyback converter without right half plane zero

    Flyback DC-DC converters are often used as power supply for many electronic systems because of circuit simplicity. However, the conventional flyback converter has a drawback of instability occurrence due to a right-half- plane zero. We have proposed a solution to delete this right-half- plane zero and to keep the flyback converter always stable by introducing a novel control strategy. This method is to control the holding time of transformer's magnetizing current with the fixed discharging time. As a result, its operation goes well and the frequency bandwidth of the control-to-output transfer function is widened in case of a tight-coupled transformer. In practice, the transformer has leakage inductances, and it results in the characteristics variations. The effect of these leakage inductances becomes larger with the increase in switching frequency. The discussion on this effect is necessary for the design of high-frequency flyback converters. However, this effect has not been discussed in detail before. This paper discusses the effect of the leakage inductances on the static and dynamic characteristics of the novel flyback converter proposed previously and its mechanism through the analysis and the experiment. As a result, it is confirmed that the leakage inductances act as an equivalent resistance and that static load regulation is deteriorated, but the dynamic response is smoothed due to the increased dumping factor.

  • Dynamic Characteristics of Switching DC-DC Power Converter with Static Model Reference

    We have already reported the novel digital control method "static model reference" which is the improved smart digital reference of output voltage for its digitally controlled dc-dc converter. The circuit mechanism and the static characteristics have been cleared. This paper presents dynamic characteristics of the digitally controlled dc-dc converter with static model reference. Moreover, a new algorithm of the output current balance operation is proposed and dynamic characteristics of the multi-phase performance are clarified. As a result, the superior dynamic characteristics are obtained and it is clarified in the simulation that the undershoot of the output voltage in step change of the load from 100 Omega to 2.5 Omega is suppressed enough within 5% and the transient time is very short within 0.07 ms. Also, the undershoot is suppressed within 0.5% and the transient time is within 0.04 ms when the input voltage is step-changed from 20 V to 16 V. Furthermore, the good dynamic balance of the load current is confirmed

  • Modeling and Simulation of DC-DC Power Converters in CCM and DCM Using the Switching Functions Approach: Application to the Buck and C ù k Converters

    In this paper, new mathematical models of DC-DC switch-mode converters, which are valid under both continuous and discontinuous operating modes, are presented. The modeling technique is based on the switching functions concept. The obtained models are represented by time-variant state equations, which offer high simplicity for computer implementation. For illustration purpose, the proposed modeling approach is applied to the conventional buck and Cùk converters. The obtained models are then tested through computer implementation using the Simulink tool of Matlab.
