The goal of this paper is to propose and validate standstill dc-Decay measuring methods for a rotor in arbitrary position, which consist of generalizations of the existing methods with the rotor aligned with one axis. The first new method (dc-Decay I) delivers the equivalent circuit with a few measurements. The second new method (dc-Decay II) permits to determine the full equivalent circuit of both axes by performing only one measurement, which is unique and a breakthrough in parameter identification. The field current measurement enables obtaining the characteristic reactance $x_{c}$. A new method (dc-Decay III) is used to get the rotor angle. To extract the time constants and the reactances, an enhancement of the existing parameter identification algorithms using curve fitting is presented (used for the dc-Decay I method). Simulation and experimental results validate as good as possible the new methods and show their accuracy as well as their drawback.]]>534350535183330<![CDATA[Computationally Efficient Analysis of Double PM-Rotor Radial-Flux Eddy Current Couplers]]>534351935271496<![CDATA[Combined Model for Simulating the Effect of Transients on a Damaged Rotor Cage]]>534352835371042<![CDATA[Numerical Study of Convective Heat Transfer in the End Regions of a Totally Enclosed Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine]]>534353835471191<![CDATA[Improved Analytical Estimation of Rotor Losses in High-Speed Surface-Mounted PM Synchronous Machines]]>53435483556924<![CDATA[Sensitivity of Manufacturing Tolerances on Cogging Torque in Interior Permanent Magnet Machines With Different Slot/Pole Number Combinations]]>534355735672370<![CDATA[Influence of Manufacturing Tolerances on Cogging Torque in Interior Permanent Magnet Machines with Eccentric and Sinusoidal Rotor Contours]]>534356835783081<![CDATA[Prediction of Losses and Efficiency for Three-Phase Induction Machines Equipped With Combined Star–Delta Windings]]>I^{2}R losses in the stator and the rotor windings, and thus to an increased efficiency.

In this paper, a complete theory and analysis method for the analytical calculation of the efficiency for induction motors equipped with combined star–delta windings is developed. The method takes into account the additional harmonic content due to the different magnetomotive forces in the star and delta parts.

A stator current observer is designed based on an STA to estimate the back electromotive force. A discontinuous sign function in the conventional SMO is replaced by a supertwisting function. The chattering problem, unavoidable in conventional SMO, is eliminated by reducing the amplitude of switching function of an STA-SMO. Meanwhile, a parallel online $ R_{s}$ estimation scheme is presented based on a modified SMO. Because mismatch between actual and set resistance may lead to estimation error and even system instability. The Lyapunov stability theorem is used to obtain the stable conditions of the proposed online $ R_{s}$ observer at both motoring and generating mode. With the help of online $ R_{s}$ observer, resistance uncertainties caused by temperature variation can be taken into account, which means robustness and stability of an STA-SMO can be improved. At the same time, higher position and speed estimation accuracy is obtained and operation range of sensorless control is extended. Finally, the proposed method is validated and compared with a conventional method by simulations and experiments.]]>534367236821188<![CDATA[Performance Improvement of Model-Predictive Current Control of Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor Drives]]>534368336953111<![CDATA[Electrical Loss Minimization Technique for Wind Generators Based on a Comprehensive Dynamic Modeling of Induction Machines]]>534369637062318<![CDATA[Investigation of DC-Link Voltage and Temperature Variations on EV Traction System Design]]>534370737181674<![CDATA[Nonlinear Model Suitable for the Offline Cosimulation of Fault-Tolerant PM Motors Drives]]>534371937292173<![CDATA[Torque Ripple Reduction for 6-Stator/4-Rotor-Pole Variable Flux Reluctance Machines by Using Harmonic Field Current Injection]]>534373037371140<![CDATA[High Performance Silicon Carbide Power Block for Industry Applications]]>534373837475336<![CDATA[A Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer System Applicable to a Stationary System]]>534374837571557<![CDATA[A Circulating-Current Suppression Method for Parallel-Connected Voltage-Source Inverters With Common DC and AC Buses]]>534375837692078<![CDATA[Variable Slope Trapezoidal Reference Signal Based Control for a DC Fault Tolerant Hybrid Modular Multilevel Converter With Cascaded Full Bridges]]>m_{v}) to keep the energy exchanged by WSP nearly equal to zero, whereas the losses and nonideality of the converter are taken care of by the feedback controller.

The main application of the analyzed approach is in the testing of grid connected resources (e.g., renewable sources), where it allows us to ease testing procedure, minimize wasted power, and reduce test-bench size. To this end, an effective control system is proposed, analyzed, and designed considering a current-controlled inverter as the basis of emulator development. The limitations of the control system are explored, highlighting the requirements of the controller in order to achieve desired emulation accuracies and avoid instability. The reported studies are verified by means of both simulations and experimental tests performed on a laboratory prototype. In particular, the proposed modeling is able to predict the presence of resonant peaks close to the current control bandwidth, giving in this way useful guidelines to minimize such an undesired effect, which is detrimental for stability when the load is connected to other systems. Finally, the experimental results from an unintentional islanding test are reported to show the equivalence of the developed active $RLC$ load with respect to a passive one.]]>534383138391261<![CDATA[An Accurate Subcircuit Model of SiC Half-Bridge Module for Switching-Loss Optimization]]>534384038481295<![CDATA[Solid-State-Transformer-Interfaced Permanent Magnet Wind Turbine Distributed Generation System With Power Management Functions]]>534384938611561<![CDATA[Delta Power Control Strategy for Multistring Grid-Connected PV Inverters]]>534386238701182<![CDATA[Electric Spring for Voltage and Power Stability and Power Factor Correction]]>534387138791071<![CDATA[High-Efficiency Impedance Control Network Resonant DC–DC Converter With Optimized Startup Control]]>534388038893157<![CDATA[Designed Simulation and Experiment of a Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting System Based on Vortex-Induced Vibration]]>534389038971350<![CDATA[Dual Two-Level Converters Based on Direct Power Control for an Open-Winding Brushless Doubly-Fed Reluctance Generator]]>534389839061490<![CDATA[Velocity and Torque Limit Profile Optimization of Electric Vehicle Including Limited Overload]]>534390739161449<![CDATA[Analysis and Design of Current-Fed Half-Bridge (C)(LC)–( LC) Resonant Topology for Inductive Wireless Power Transfer Application]]>CCL-LC resonant network. The major focus is analysis and implementation of a new current-fed resonant topology with current-sharing and voltage doubling features. Generally, inductive power transfer circuits with current fed converter use parallel CL resonant tank to transfer power effectively through air gap. However, in medium power application, this topology suffers from a major limitation of high voltage stress across the inverter semiconductor devices owing to high reactive power consumed by loosely coupled coil. In proposed topology, this is mitigated by adding a capacitor in series with the coil developing series-parallel CCL tank. The power flow is controlled through variable frequency modulation.
