In this paper, the practical impedance approach steady-state analysis in the frequency domain for the three-phase self-excited induction generator (SEIG) with squirrel-cage rotor is presented along with its operating performance evaluations. The three-phase SEIG is driven by a variable-speed prime mover(VSPM) in addition to a constant-speed prime mover(More)
In this paper, we propose the control method of a peak shaving system for an electric injection molding machine (EIMM). The peak power shaver consists of a multiphase bidirectional dc-dc converter and supercapacitors (SCs), and is connected to a dc link of the inverter fed injection motor drive system of the EIMM. In the proposed control method, electric(More)
In this paper, we propose a smart charger for electric vehicles with a power-quality compensator. The proposed smart charger consists of four-leg insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs). Three legs are used for a single-phase full-bridge-based pulsewidth-modulated (PWM) rectifier, which converts power from ac to dc during the battery-charging operation(More)
Wide-bandgap semiconductors such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) are promising materials for next-generation power devices. We have fabricated a normally on GaN-based high-electron-mobility transistor (GaN HEMT) for power electronic converters. In this paper, the current collapse phenomena, which are distinctive characteristics of GaN(More)
The paper presents a novel circuit topology of a high efficiency single-phase sinewave power conditioning and processing converter with a DC-link chemical capacitor. This power conditioner, used as a small scale stand-alone new-energy related power generation system, is composed of time-sharing operated sinewave absolute modulation boost chopper with a(More)
This paper presents a zero-voltage and zero-current soft-switching (ZVZCS) PWM three phase inverter with a single auxiliary resonant commutation cell. All of the main switches in the three-phase inverter side can be turned on and turned off under zero-voltage and zero-current condition. The operating principle of proposed commutation cell is described, and(More)
In this paper, the novel circuit topology of half-bridge soft switching PWM DC-DC power converter with a high frequency planar transformer link was presented. The operating principle and switching pattern of the half-bridge soft switching PWM DC-DC power converter described for 40 kHz, 36 V and 400 A output were illustrated and discussed for low voltage and(More)
In tandem with the penetration of PHV as well as EV, contact-less power supply system in parking towers have become important subjects. In parking towers, EV and PHV are charged on the traveling pallets, supply power is to be transmitted from the building to travelling pallets. In this paper, high-frequency link AC-AC converter for contact-less power supply(More)
This paper presents a bidirectional DC-DC converter suitable for low-voltage super capacitor-based electric energy storage systems. The DC-DC converter presented here consists of a full-bridge circuit and a current-fed push-pull circuit with a high frequency (HF) transformer-link. In order to reduce the device-conduction losses due to the large current of(More)
This paper proposes a novel simple reactive power control strategy for the active load balancer (ALB) in three-phase four-wire distribution systems. The proposed reactive power control strategy may be applicable for adjustment of the source-side power factor under the balanced load condition. Only dc capacitor voltage control is used in the proposed control(More)
