VFT (variable frequency transformer) has been recently used as an alternative to HVDC (high voltage direct current) to control power flow between asynchronous networks. VFT consumes less reactive power than a back-to-back HVDC system, provides faster initial transient recovery, and has better natural damping capability. VFT is simply a DFIM (doubly-fed(More)
To extend the operating speed range of a conventional configuration of FESS (flywheel energy storage system), an additional DC-DC boost converter is required between the machine and grid side converters to regulate the output voltage. This paper presents a new FESS based on three-phase boost inverter topology. The proposed system facilitates voltage boost(More)
Due to the rapid growth of the electric energy demands, the necessity of involvement of distributed generation (DG) to overcome this demand became a must. When distributed generation renewable energy sources are coupled to the grid through a DC-AC inverter, the injected currents to the grid should be characterized by high quality and low distortion. Many(More)
Due to the large variety of renewable power sources, power electronics play an important role in energy conversion. Different power converter topologies are used to interface distributed power generation systems (DPGS) with the utility network. Introduction of power electronics for DPGS provide several advantages such as energy optimal operation by(More)
Pulsed electric field is a commonly used and effective disinfection method in drinking water treatment applications. In this paper, a transformerless unipolar/bipolar high-voltage pulse generator is presented with well-regulated pulsed output voltage for drinking water treatment via underwater pulsed corona discharge. The proposed high-voltage pulse(More)
In applications where motors are fed from low voltage variable-frequency drive (VFD) through long cables, a step up transformer is commonly used to boost the converter output voltage in order to compensate for the cable voltage drop. For safety-critical applications, employing a multiphase machine generally enhances system reliability, however, a multiphase(More)
