Authors: K V Gopalachary

Abstract: This paper defines about alloyed (Amorphous) core of a distribution transformer. Traditionally transformer cores have been constructed of grain orientated steel alloys, but a new material which has an amorphous structure is being used increasingly in distribution transformers. The material offers advantages over traditional materials and transformers using the core material are being used in a wide range of applications. According to the measured results, the lowest core loss occurs with an annealing temperature 360℃ under a dc magnetic field density 800A/m. Besides, no load test, sudden short circuit test, and lightning impulse test are performed to ensure the transformer performance. Finally, at the same specifications and rated power, experimental results are presented for the amorphous alloy SA1 core transformer and traditional silicon steel core transformer.

Authors: Shehnaaz Chandini, G.Vanitha

Abstract: In industries due to power fluctuations and other factors the power quality gets effects in the distribution system. Hence Power Quality is the major concern in case of sensitive loads that are present in Distribution System. One of the most frequently occurring power quality problems in distribution network is voltage sag/swell. The main objective is to compensate voltage sag by using Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR), here DVR performance is simulated using four control methods. Those methods are Pre sag compensation method, In phase compensation method, Energy Optimization method, In phase advanced method which are used whenever voltage sag occurs. All the four methods are compared and In phase advanced method has found to be better in compensating magnitude of voltage sag and it is also consuming less power observed from simulation results. The performance of DVR is evaluated using simulation in MATLAB/SIMULINK Software.

For three-stage network associated applications, PV mismatches may present uneven provided control, leading to lopsided framework current. To unravel this issue, a control scheme with tweak remuneration is likewise proposed. An experimental three-stage seven-level fell H-connect inverter has been built utilizing nine H-connect modules (three modules for every stage). Each H-connect module is associated with a 185-W sun oriented board. Simulation and test results are exhibited to check the possibility of the proposed approach.

Abstract: The real system code necessities for the system relationship of appropriated time structures, generally wind and photovoltaic (PV) systems, are ending up being incredibly asking. The transmission system heads (TSOs) are especially worried about the low-voltage-ride-through necessities. Courses of action in view of the foundation of STATCOMs and component voltage controllers (DVRs), and furthermore on front line control functionalities for the current drive converters of scattered time plants, have added to redesign their response under blemished and distorted circumstances and, in this manner, to fulfill these requirements. With a particular true objective to achieve pleasing results with such systems, it is critical to rely on upon exact and speedy system voltage synchronization estimations, which can work under uneven and turned conditions. This paper separates the synchronization capacity of three moved synchronization systems: the decoupled twofold synchronous reference diagram arrange darted circle (PLL), the twofold second demand summed up integrator PLL, and the three-organize enhanced PLL, planned to work under such conditions. Despite the way that distinctive systems in light of repeat darted circles have also been made, PLLs have been picked due to their association with dq0 controllers. In the going with, the unmistakable estimations will be shown additionally, discretized, and their execution will be attempted in an exploratory setup controlled in order to evaluate their precision likewise, execution highlights.

Abstract: This paper proposes a changed current point of confinement methodology (MCLS) and a recurrence hysteresis control (FHC) for enhancing the aggravation ride-through capacity of a VSC-HVDC interface providing aloof mechanical establishments. Since mechanical burdens are more delicate to voltage drops than recurrence deviations, it's fundamental to ensure the solidness of voltage amid extreme flaws. The advancement of the control techniques incorporates three stages. To begin with, the fundamental component that influences the air conditioner voltage in the latent mechanical framework is broke down so as to upgrade the voltage solidness all the more adequately. Besides, as indicated by the scientific outcomes, the MCLS is proposed to build the air conditioner voltage in transient conditions. Thirdly, keeping in mind the end goal to improve the MCLS have a control result, the FHC is added to the VSC controller with the MCLS, which can likewise additionally upgrade the air conditioner voltage of the detached framework. The reenactment tests under metallic single-stage and three-stage deficiencies are done in PSCAD/EMTDC, and the outcomes check the legitimacy of the control strategies.

Direct Torque Control of Brushless DC Motor with Non-sinusoidal Back-EMF

Authors: T.Vamsee Kiran, M.Sunil Kumar

Abstract: Abstract—In this paper, a direct torque control (DTC) technique for brushless dc (BLDC) motors with non-sinusoidal back-EMF operating in the constant torque region is presented. This approach introduces a two-phase conduction mode as opposed to the conventional three-phase DTC drives. In this control scheme, only two phases conduct at any instant of time. Unlike conventional six-step PWM current control, by properly selecting the inverter voltage space vectors of the two-phase conduction mode from a simple look-up table at a predefined sampling time, the desired quasi-square wave current is obtained. Therefore, a much faster torque response is achieved compared to conventional PWM current control. In this paper, it is also shown that in the constant torque region under the two-phase conduction DTC scheme, the amplitude of the stator flux linkage cannot easily be controlled due to the sharp changes and the curved shape of the flux vector between two consecutive commutation points in the stator flux linkage locus. Furthermore, to eliminate the low- frequency torque oscillations caused by the non-ideal trapezoidal shape of the actual back-EMF waveform of the BLDC motor, a pre-stored back-EMF versus position look-up table is designed. As a result, it is possible to achieve DTC of a BLDC motor drive with faster torque response due to the fact that the voltage space vectors are directly controlled while the stator flux linkage amplitude is deliberately kept almost constant by ignoring the flux control in the constant torque region. Since the flux control along with PWM generation is removed, fewer algorithms are required for the proposed control scheme. A theoretical concept is developed and the validity and effectiveness of the proposed DTC scheme are verified through the simulations and experimental results. Index Terms—Direct torque control, brushless dc motor drives, non-sinusoidal back-EMF, two-phase conduction, fast torque response, low-frequency torque ripples.

Keywords: Direct torque control, brushless dc motor drives, non-sinusoidal back-EMF, two-phase conduction, fast torque response, low-frequency torque ripples.
