—The contribution of this paper has been focused on investigating a new microgrid architecture that integrates the solid-state transformer with zonal dc microgrids. By utilizing the dc and ac links of the solid-state transformer, both ac and dc networks can access the distribution system, which renders the coordinate management of the power and guarantees(More)
paper explores the main design issues related to power supply infrastructure needed for a vehicle charging system to be implemented in a large parking deck. The design challenges with such a system have been investigated. Simulations have been performed to characterize the chargers as loads and a supply design is proposed. The design components include the(More)
The KArlsruhe TRItium Neutrino experiment KATRIN aims at improving the upper limit of the mass of the electron antineutrino to about 0.2 eV (90% c.l.) by investigating the β-decay of tritium gas molecules T 2 → (3 HeT) + + e − + ¯ ν e. The experiment is currently under construction to start first data taking in 2012. One source of systematic uncertainties(More)
The next generation power system is a Cyber-Physical System (CPS) with a large number of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs). Advanced technologies in power electronics and communications networks give the system operator much more flexibility to operate the grid. In contrast, a large number of geographically distributed controllable devices also raise a(More)
Total fission cross section induced by protons in <sup>181</sup>Ta and <sup>208</sup>Pb at energies in the range of 300 to 1000 A MeV have been measured at GSI (Germany) using the inverse kinematics technique. A dedicated setup with high efficiency made it possible to determine these cross sections with high accuracy. The new data seed light in the(More)
