    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (139 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper we present a software interface for multiple watchdog timers. Watchdogs are generally used to improve reliability of a computer system. In our proposed approach we use hardware watchdogs to secure not only the whole system, but also the processes self. In embedded systems it is common to check processes by using software watchdogs and to check the system by using one or few hardware ... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (270 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper shows a predictive current control with DC-Link voltage balance feature. A restriction in the voltage vectors generated by the 3L converter is explained, which leads to a better 3L voltage pattern, reducing double commutations and accelerating the calculation routine. On the other hand an estimation of the switching losses is considered in the selection of the future voltage vector, whi... View full abstract»

  • Optimal filtering of the fuel cell power probing signal for maximum power point robust adaptive tracking

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):1 - 4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (261 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The fuel cell power-current characteristic has a maximum power point (MPP), whose position in time depends on other parameters of fuel cell. The maximum energy conversion efficiency is obtained if fuel cell operates at MPP so a robust control for finding and tracking the current MPP is necessary. The extremum seeking control (ESC) allows the design of such adaptive control to track the current MPP... View full abstract»
