Title: Electrical power converter method and system employing multiple output converters

Abstract

A support may receive one or more power electronic circuits. The support may aid in removing heat from the circuits through fluid circulating through the support. The support, in conjunction with other packaging features may form a shield from both external EMI/RFI and from interference generated by operation of the power electronic circuits. Features may be provided to permit and enhance connection of the circuitry to external circuitry, such as improved terminal configurations. Modular units may be assembled that may be coupled to electronic circuitry via plug-in arrangements or through interface with a backplane or similar mounting and interconnecting structures.

  • An automatic transmission is described for a vehicle equipped with an engine, comprising: a torque converter having a rotational power input member adapted to be driven by the engine and a rotational power output member; a gear transmission mechanism for selectively providing a plurality of speed stages including a first and lower speed stage, a second and substantially high speed stage, and a reverse stage; an oil pressure control system for selectively supplying an oil pressure to the first and second clutches for selectively engaging the first and second clutches; a speed sensor for detecting the rotational speed of themore » second rotational input member of the gear transmission mechanism; and a creep control system.« less
  • A gas turbine power plant is provided with an industrial gas turbine which drives a rotating brushless exciter generator coupled to a power system through a breaker. One or more of the turbine-generator plants are operated by a hybrid digital computer control system during sequenced startup, synchronizing, load, and shutdown operations. The program system for the computer and external analog circuitry operate in a multiple gas turbine control loop arrangement. Automatic synchronization is achieved with a hybrid subsystem which includes the programmed computer and external phase detection circuitry. An automatic synchronization program for the computer is divided into rough speedmore » and voltage matching, fine speed matching and breaker closure sub-programs« less
  • The system and method manages an electrical output of a turbogenerator in accordance with multiple modes. In a first mode, a direct current (DC) bus receives power from a turbogenerator output via a rectifier where turbogenerator revolutions per unit time (e.g., revolutions per minute (RPM)) or an electrical output level of a turbogenerator output meet or exceed a minimum threshold. In a second mode, if the turbogenerator revolutions per unit time or electrical output level of a turbogenerator output are less than the minimum threshold, the electric drive motor or a generator mechanically powered by the engine provides electrical energymore » to the direct current bus.« less
