    Wind power is still the most promising renewable energy in the year of 2013. The wind turbine system (WTS) started with a few tens of kilowatt power in the 1980s. Now, multimegawatt wind turbines are widely installed even up to 6-8 MW. There is a widespread use of wind turbines in the distribution networks and more and more wind power stations, acting as power plants, are connected directly to the... View full abstract»

    A nonlinear control loop mapping has previously been designed for mitigating the dead zone of a noninverting buck-boost converter while minimizing state variable perturbation. This paper derives a new nonlinearity that enables a converter with fixed switching frequency to achieve reduced switching loss as though operating at an effective switching frequency lower than the actual. The new control l... View full abstract»

    This paper attempts to address the practical design and simulation of power supplies. Formal circuit analysis provides a set of equations which is usually insufficient for solving all unknowns or calculating the values of all the components in the circuit being designed. Additional relationships or domain knowledge (industry-specific knowledge) is required to make up for the necessary equations to... View full abstract»

    This paper reviews the trends in wind turbine generator systems. After discussing some important requirements and basic relations, it describes the currently used systems: the constant speed system with squirrel-cage induction generator, and the three variable speed systems with doubly fed induction generator (DFIG), with gearbox and fully rated converter, and direct drive (DD). Then, possible fut... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The scope of the journal encompasses selected topics and emerging technologies in power electronics, including components, systems, and processes used in solid-state energy conversion and applications in energy conservation and efficiency. Solid-state energy conversion includes electronic power conversion systems for mobile, wireless, and other applications; and power conversion systems associated with energy conversion, storage, and interface between electric and non-electric energy conversion, including power converters and drives. Applications in energy conservation and efficiency include industrial transformation of energy, manufacturing operations, local grid connections, use and management, local generation and co-generation.
