Renewable energy sources such as wind turbine generators and photovoltaics produce fluctuating electric power. The fluctuating power can be compensated by installing an energy storage system in the vicinity of these sources. This paper describes a 6.6-kV battery energy storage system based on a cascade pulsewidth-modulation (PWM) converter with focus on a(More)
This paper focuses on fault-tolerant control for a battery-energy-storage system based on a multilevel cascade pulsewidth-modulation (PWM) converter with star configuration. During the occurrence of a single-converter-cell or single-battery-unit fault, the fault-tolerant control enables continuous operation and maintains state-of-charge balancing of the(More)
Renewable energy sources such as wind turbine generators and photovoltaics produce a fluctuating electric power. A battery energy storage system (BESS) should be installed in the vicinity of these sources. The fluctuating power is compensated by appropriately controlling an active power stored in the battery. This paper describes a feasible circuit(More)
This paper focuses on fault-tolerant control for a battery energy storage system based on a three-phase multilevel cascade PWM (pulse-width-modulation) converter with star configuration. It enables continuous operation and maintains SOC (state-of-charge) balancing of operating battery units even during the occurrence of a converter-cell or battery-unit(More)
Micelles of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) are significantly retarded by the addition of a small amount of dodecyl alcohol to a sample solution in SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The phenomenon can be ascribed to the decrease in charge density due to the incorporation of dodecyl alcohol into SDS micelles. The effect is extended to SDS-protein(More)
Wind is the most promising renewable source. However its erratic behavior hampers the output especially when the energy generated is to be stored safely and used as per demands. The paper revel the charging battery with maximum power point tracking (MPPT) considering battery safety. The main task of wind power charge controller is to control the flow of(More)
Derivatives of N6-(4-aminobenzyl)adenosine (substituted at the aminobenzyl group) and 5'-linked derivatives of N6-(4-nitrobenzyl)adenosine (NBAdo) were evaluated as inhibitors of site-specific binding of [3H]nitrobenzylthioinosine (NBMPR) to pig erythrocyte membranes. Potent inhibitors were SAENTA [5'-S-(2-aminoethyl)-N6-(4-nitrobenzyl)-5'-thioadenosine](More)
The conformational study of two basic proline-rich polypeptides from human parotid saliva, P--D and P--E of known primary structures, was performed by CD and 1H--n.m.r. spectra measurements. These polypeptides contain consecutive sequences of five prolyl residues in their amino acid sequences. The troughs in CD spectra of P--D and P--E were found at 202 and(More)
The conformational study of three proline-rich polypeptides of human whole saliva, with known primary structures, was performed by CD and 1H-n.m.r. spectra measurements. All these polypeptides contained more than four consecutive prolyl residues in their amino acid sequences. The occurrence of the poly-L-proline form II conformation in their structures was(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical feasibility of dynamic MR imaging of solitary pulmonary lesions (SPLs) using a fat-suppressed three-dimensional gradient-echo technique with a volumetric interpolated breath-hold examination (VIBE). Correlation between the enhancement pattern and the histological characteristics of the nodules was also assessed. MATERIALS(More)
