    This paper presents a Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) control methodology for a hydro power plant for potentially superior smart grid implementations. The hydro power plant is assumed to be decomposable to its subsystems whose characteristics may involve different dynamical behaviors related to a real-time time-varying parameter that can be measurable in future periods. The nonlinear hydro plant dy... View full abstract»

    In this work, mathematical modelling, construction and testing of a low cost turbine-less alternative for utilization of wind energy is demonstrated. The prototype consists of a taut Mylar strip strung between two rigid supports of a frame. The strip is subjected to wind induced vibrations when placed in wind flow. The vibrational motion of the strip is then utilized in generating electricity. A f... View full abstract»

    The motor equivalent circuit method provides an effective method to estimate motor efficiency. However, the circuit parameters normally have to be determined through field tests, which are impossible to conduct when systems are in service. Because motor efficiency and power factor data at four load levels under the rated frequency are always published, an iterative method is proposed to identify t... View full abstract»

    Bulky capacitors are often needed in DC systems to smooth voltage ripples, which reduces the power density and system reliability considerably. In this paper, a Ripple Eliminator (RE) that is a bidirectional buck-boost converter terminated with an auxiliary capacitor is proposed to reduce voltage ripples after connecting it to the DC bus. A controller is proposed to transfer the voltage ripples on... View full abstract»

    Wireless sensors are generally battery-powered stand-alone devices with limited processing power and communication capabilities. Wireless sensors have limited sources of energy to power their functions. Green technologies are those designed to be more efficient in energy consumption and conservation and/or to utilize greener energy sources than used previously. Sensor network energy utilization an... View full abstract»

    A control structure for a hybrid renewable energy source tied to a direct current (DC) motor is proposed. The energy system is composed by a Photovoltaic (PV) array as the primary power source and a Fuel-Cell (FC) as an auxiliary or secondary power source. The control system has been developed to guarantee motor speed regulation and maximum power generation of the energy sources under any environm... View full abstract»
