| | PDF (1378 KB) | HTML

To decrease the seek time of hard disk drives, a feedforward control method was developed by using a sampled-data polynomial. The sampled-data polynomial satisfies the boundary conditions that include the characteristics of the zero-order hold, and compensates for the discretization error caused by the zero-order hold without the need for complicated calculations. Therefore, the feedforward contro... View full abstract»

This paper proposes a tactile-sensing mechanism for a robot. The mechanism is composed of a force-sensor device and an end-effector of shell shape. Since the end-effector plays the role of an outer shell, a force can be sensed at any position on the body.

The transformer winding capacitance, which is significant in high-voltage power supplies, is not gainfully utilized in an LCL-T resonant converter (RC). A simplified analysis presented in this paper predicts the severe degradation of output current regulation of an LCL-T RC due to transformer winding capacitance. The presence of winding capacitance, in fact, changes the third-order LCL-T resonant ... View full abstract»

Synchronous rectification (SR) is mandatory to achieve good efficiencies with low output voltages. If a transformer is driven asymmetrically without dead times, the self-driven SR (SDSR) is a very interesting solution. However, if the transformer is driven symmetrically, the synchronous rectifiers are off during the dead times, and as a consequence, the efficiency is lowered. This paper deals with...

Diesel generators in small electricity grids are mostly not used in a very efficient way. The reason for this is twofold. First of all, the efficiency of a diesel generator is dependent on the ratio determined by the average power divided by the peak power of the generator. The smaller this ratio is, the lower the efficiency. Furthermore, some loads can regenerate energy. In small grids, this ener... View full abstract»

Grid-connected unity-power-factor converters based on one-cycle control (OCC) do not require the service of phase-locked loop or any other synchronization circuits for interfacing with the utility. As a result, these schemes are becoming increasingly popular. However, as the power handled by the converter increases, the power factor deteriorates. To understand quantitatively the cause of poor powe... View full abstract»
