This paper addresses to some of the latest contributions on the application of Finite Control Set Model Predictive Control (FCS-MPC) in Power Electronics. In FCS-MPC , the switching states are directly applied to the power converter, without the need of an additional modulation stage. The paper shows how the use of FCS-MPC provides a simple and efficient(More)
This paper considers the design of a "long-pulse" modulator supply rated at 25 kV, 10 A (250 kW peak power, duty ratio 10%, 25 kW average power, pulse length ap 1-2 ms). The supply is based on direct modulation of a multi-phase resonant power supply, fed by an active rectifier. The objectives of the development are to produce a compact power supply, with(More)
In this paper, a dedicated pulse width modulation (PWM) technique specifically designed for single-phase (or four wire three-phase) multilevel Cascaded H-Bridge Converters is presented. The aim of the proposed technique is to minimize the DC-Link voltage unbalance, independently from the amplitude of the DC-Link voltage reference, and compensate the(More)
This paper presents a novel three-phase series resonant parallel loaded resonant converter topology for radio frequency applications. The proposed converter is capable of producing a series of “long pulses” as output voltage, each one lasting 1 ms in time. Three individual single-phase resonant stages are able to independently operate in(More)
A matrix converter and variable-speed diesel generator are integrated to create a three-phase utility power supply. The matrix converter is designed to meet tight harmonic and transient response requirements while allowing variable voltage and frequency input from the generator's permanent magnet alternator; This enables the generator to provide stable(More)
