Title: FPGA implementation of high-frequency multiple PWM for variable voltage variable frequency controller

Abstract

In this paper, we present the FPGA implementation of the multiple pulse width modulation (MPWM) signal generation with repetition of data segments, applied to the variable frequency variable voltage systems and specially at to the photovoltaic water pumping system, in order to generate a signal command very easily between 10 Hz to 60 Hz with a small frequency and reduce the cost of the control system.

  • A variable inductor with magnetorheological (MR) fluid has been successfully applied to power electronics applications; however, its thermal characteristics have not been investigated. To evaluate the performance of the variable inductor with respect to temperature, we measured the characteristics of temperature rise and developed a numerical analysis technique. The characteristics of temperature rise were determined experimentally and verified numerically by adopting a multiphysics analysis technique. In order to accurately estimate the temperature distribution in a variable inductor with an MR fluid-gap, the thermal solver should import the heat source from the electromagnetic solver to solve the eddy current problem. Tomore » improve accuracy, the B–H curves of the MR fluid under operating temperature were obtained using the magnetic property measurement system. In addition, the Steinmetz equation was applied to evaluate the core loss in a ferrite core. The predicted temperature rise for a variable inductor showed good agreement with the experimental data and the developed numerical technique can be employed to design a variable inductor with a high-frequency pulsed voltage source.« less
  • Fuzzy controllers are increasingly being accepted by engineers and scientists alike as a viable alternative for classical controllers. The processes involved in fuzzy controllers closely imitate human control processes. Human responses to stimuli are not governed by transfer function and neither are those from fuzzy controllers. This study involves the design and application of fuzzy control to the problem of automatic voltage regulation of a synchronous generator. The method explored deals with the use of Binary Input-output Fuzzy Associative Memories for control. Error and rate of change of voltage are used to maintain a constant output voltage. Software routines weremore » written in ''C'' language and were fast enough for real time computer control. The fuzzy controller was implemented in an IBM compatible personal computer to control an industrial size 5 kVA synchronous machine.« less
  • In an HVDC transmission system that links two ac power systems, the automatic frequency controller (AFC) calculates power to be interchanged between the two ac systems according to their frequencies thereby improving the frequency characteristics of the two power systems. This paper introduces a newly developed dc AFC system, which applies a multi-variable control to the dc system-based frequency control. It is capable of controlling the frequencies of the two ac systems optimally while maintaining their stability. This system was developed for one of Japan's HVDC transmission facilities and produced good results in a combined test using a power systemmore » simulator. The field installation will be completed in March 1993, when the AFC system will enter service.« less
