    This article dealt with the topical subjects of the dependability and the functional safety of a system in light of the corpuses of dependability theory and functional safety standards. After some preliminary definitions on the notions of systems and service, the two corpuses were explicated. Concepts developed to give the matter an abstract but useful assessment were illustrated. The way issues t... View full abstract»

    Digital controllers are used for modern power converter control and industrial automation. The functionality of the finite-state machine (FSM) provides an ideal platform for building a high-frequency field-programmable gate array (FPGA) controller for power electronics applications. This article develops the design of a current-control loop and the selection of switching logic for three-phase swit... View full abstract»

    Three-phase current-injection rectifiers have been recently ranked among the most attractive AC-to-DC energy conversion topologies required in medium- and high-power applications. Their increasing popularity is mainly due to their structural and control simplicity and their high performance in terms of input power factor, current distortion, energy efficiency, and dc voltage regulation. They are a... View full abstract»

    Proportional-integral (PI) controllers are the most common form of feedback used in industrial applications today [1][3]. The use of proportional and integral feedback also has a long history of practical applications [4]. For example, in the middle of the 18th century, centrifugal governors as the proportional feedback were applied to regulate the speed of windmills [5]. By the 19th century, it w...

    Wartime efforts aimed at developing superior technologies provided a major boost to vacuum tube development during and after World War II (WWII). The demand for tubes capable of generating microwaves for radar led to the development of the improved cavity-type magnetron in 1940 by John Randall (1905-1984) and Henry Boot (1917-1983) at the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom. This device was i... View full abstract»
