    This paper presents an improved magnetic circuit model of a coreless axial flux permanent magnet (AFPM) machine for the evaluation of its air-gap leakage flux. In the coreless AFPM machine, the stator axial length is one of the effective parameters in the calculation of the air-gap leakage flux factor. It is important to correctly update the leakage flux factor value corresponding to the variation... View full abstract»

    A Nonlinear model predictive control (NMPC) for trajectory tracking with the obstacle avoidance of autonomous road vehicles traveling at realistic speeds is presented in this paper, with a focus on the performance of those controllers with respect to the look-ahead horizon of the NMPC. Two different methods of obstacle avoidance are compared and then the NMPC is tested in several simulated but rea... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a new systolic array architecture to perform inversion operation in GF(2m) based on a previously modified extended Euclidean algorithm. This architecture has low area and power complexities and it achieves a moderate speed. This architecture is explored by applying a regular technique to the inversion algorithm. The systolic architecture obtained has simple structure... View full abstract»

    Commutation failure is one of the most common failures that may lead to serious consequences in high-voltage direct current (HVdc) systems. Superconducting fault current limiters (SFCLs) have been proved effective to inhibit commutation failures. In this paper, different installation positions of SFCLs are compared through three proposed evaluation indexes. The position between ac and dc systems i... View full abstract»

    HVdc transmission using modular multilevel converters (MMCs) is becoming increasingly prevalent. However, line-commutated converter (LCC) HVdc transmission remains advantageous in its ability to clear dc faults and restart power transmission without operation of the ac system protection. This paper presents an HVdc system topology that employs both MMC and LCC converters to transmit unidirectional... View full abstract»
