    A 120 V mains-driven class-E converter used as an electronic ballast for a 15 W fluorescent lamp is presented. The key element of the circuit is a cascoded bipolar metal-oxide semiconductor (BiMOS) switch which ensures high-voltage and high-frequency capability. In spite of the high switching frequency of 450 kHz an excellent efficiency of 91 percent could be achieved. Thus miniaturization becomes... View full abstract»

    A new general computer-aided algorithm for computing parameter sensitivities of distortion in power electronic circuits and its elimination scheme are proposed. The adjoint network approach is employed for calculating parameter sensitivities of the distortion factor and the ripple factor of current and voltage waveforms. An optimal filter design-algorithm to reduce undesirable harmonics is also pr... View full abstract»

  • A New High Frequency Cycloconverter

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):215 - 222

    A new ac to ac frequency converter which uses three pairs of back-to-back thyristors, anid converts three-phase power frequency to a single-phase higher frequency, is introduced. In the same type of converters made public recently, which use two six-pulse fully controlled bridge rectifiers, high frequency current pulses must be fed to the load tank circuit through two thyristor switches in series....

    Low frequency components of states or outputs in pulse-width modulation (PWM) dc and ac converters can be characterized by differential equations called describing state-space equations. These equations are derived by inspection of converter topology and use of switching functions and duty ratios. Their steady-state and small-signal dynamic solutions show how energy-storage elements in a converter... View full abstract»

  • Harmonic-Free Utility/DC Power Conditioning Interfaces

    The typical design of a power circuit now used to interface a dc system to the electric utility is such that a heavily distorted current is drawn from the utility. Since this distortion has the potential to interfere with the normal operation of the utility and its load, efforts are underway to develop power-conditioning interfaces that draw a nearly harmonic-free ac current waveform. The design o... View full abstract»

  • A Single Phase Induction Motor Voltage Controller with Improved Performance

    Induction motors inherently operate with nearly constant airgap flux and therefore almost constant iron losses. When the load does not require full flux, conventional voltage controllers utilize thyristors in series with the motor to reduce airgap flux by decreasing the applied voltage. Thereby, iron losses decrease and the overall efficiency increases. However, thyristor voltage controllers tend ... View full abstract»

  • Transformer Computer Design Aid for Higher Frequency Switching Power Supplies

    A transformer computer design aid is presented that was developed for use at switching frequencies above 100 kHz where the classical method of using the saturation constraint results in an over-heated transformer due to excessive core loss. Flux density is selected instead by an optimization procedure that minimizes total transformer losses. Key equations used in the design procedure are developed... View full abstract»
