In this paper, a novel drive topology for a five phase stepper motor is described in detail. Commercially off the shelf, low cost, standard stepper motor drive ICs are used to derive a novel drive topology for five phase stepper motors which enables closed loop speed and position control powered by inner current control loop. It is proved that the derived(More)
The paper discusses the use of the 'micro-grid' concept to integrate renewable energy generation into the distribution network. In essence, a micro-grid consists of bundled renewable micro sources and loads connected together by fast acting power electronics. Energy storage and low-bandwidth supervisory control is often added. The combined unit on aggregate(More)
