    This paper proposes a simple and effective scheme for Direct Torque Control (DTC) of Brushless DC Motor. Unlike the traditional DTC where both the torque and flux must to be employed in order to deliver the switching table for the inverter, the proposed DTC scheme utilizes only the torque information. By considering the particular operating principle of the motor, the instantaneous torque can be e... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (416 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The paper considers a novel fast charging topology for electric vehicles (EVs). Instead of being made as a separate unit, the proposed on-board charger utilizes power electronics components that already exist inside the vehicle, namely an asymmetrical six-phase propulsion motor and a six-phase inverter. The charger can operate at unity power factor, and is capable of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) operatio... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a novel fully electric vehicle layout, consisting of two drivetrains, each of them including a two-speed transmission, for improving vehicle acceleration and gradeability performance. The adoption of two-speed transmissions allows eight different gear state combinations, increasing the possibility of selecting a high-efficiency state for each operating condition. A torque-fill ...

    The function to find an effective layout of quick charging stations (STs) is improved in a road traffic simulator "EV-OLYENTOR", and this new function is applied to the analysis on the layout of STs in the wide area of several prefectures in Japan. Based on the results of the effective layout of STs, several simple evaluation methods to select the location of ST are proposed in order to support th... View full abstract»

  • A Linear Quadratic Integrator Approach for a Hydrogen Genset Control

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):1 - 6
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1745 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a Linear Quadratic with Integrator (LQI) controller for a hydrogen genset (internal-combustion combustion engine generator) which is used to extend electric vehicle range. Since the genset efficiency depends mostly on generator rotor speed and produced power, a maximum efficiency tracking method is required. The optimal operating conditions provided by the efficiency tracking m... View full abstract»

    The increased deployment of low carbon technologies in power distribution networks, particularly at the distribution level, is expected to cause significant problems to network operation unless existing networks are appropriately adapted and actively controlled as part of a smart grid. This paper describes the development of a modelling tool to examine Smart Grid solutions to a number of issues af... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a modified space vector pulse- width modulation for three-phase z-source integrated charger. This method supplies more shoot-through time than traditional space vector pulse-width modulation for z-source rectifier. So the proposed method has a wider range of output voltage. Besides, when the output voltage is same, the voltage stress across the switches is lower using modified ... View full abstract»

    The present paper deals with the simulation and control design of the traction system of the VAL subway. The traction system is ensured by two DC machines connected in series. A common chopper supplies the armature windings and a double-chopper supplies the field windings. The novelty consists on modeling the physical system using Bond Graph, a structural formalism, whereas the control structure i... View full abstract»
