The ANTARES collaboration is building a deep sea neutrino telescope in the Mediterranean Sea. This detector will cover a sensitive area of typically 0:1 km 2 and will be equipped with about 1000 optical modules. Each of these optical modules consists of a large area photomultiplier and its associated electronics housed in a pressure resistant glass sphere.(More)
The ANTARES Collaboration proposes to construct a large area water Cherenkov detector in the deep Mediterranean Sea, optimised for the detection of muons from high-energy astrophysical neutrinos. This paper presents the scientific motivation for building such a device, along with a review of the technical issues involved in its design and construction. The(More)
A full-bridge power-electronic building block using an inverse coupled inductor (CI) is presented which could substitute standard hard switched inverter legs. In contrast to commercial CPU supplies using CIs, the system is operated at full duty cycle range 0...1 at elevated power levels and shows experimentally proven material savings. The mathematical(More)
This paper presents an improved modulation strategy for an LLC - type resonant converter in a solar application. Neither frequency- nor phase-shift-modulation alone is used, but a new hybrid modulation technique depending on a resonant current zero-crossing. Control can be implemented using only one parameter ton while supporting soft-switching.(More)
