    The engineering discipline of power electronics will grow only through the open exchange and critical examination of new ideas byspecialists in the field. It has been the primary goal of the Power Electronics Specialist Conference (PESC) to provide a forum for such an exchange. Over the past seven years we have seen this annual conference grow in maturity and scope. Five societies of the IEEE, rep... View full abstract»

  • Modeling, analysis, and simulation

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s): 17
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (648 KB)

    The circuits used in power electronics employ semiconductor switching devices that turn on and off in cyclical order. The effective circuit topology depends upon the combination of conducting and nonconducting devices at the time in question, and the switching action generates a succession of transients. "Steady-state" operation is construed to mean that the transients in one cycle repeat the wave... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (96)  |  Patents (3)
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2377 KB)

    A method for modelling switching-converter power stages is developed, whose starting point is the unified state-space representation of the switched networks and whose end result is either a complete state-space description or its equivalent small-signal low-frequency linear circuit model. A new canonical circuit model is proposed, whose fixed topology contains all the essential input-output and c... View full abstract»

    A power processing optimization methodology is established to effectively conceive a design, to meet all requirement specifications and concurrently optimize a given design quantity deemed particular desirable. Such a quantity can be the weight, efficiency, regulator response, or any other physically-realizable entity. Four design examples are given to demonstrate the methodology. The method of La...

    Results of computer analysis methods are assessed in the case of a boost regulator in light and heavy condition mode. Five methods are evaluated which are based on network topology, differential equation, non-linear continuous frequency model, linearized low frequency models, and linearized discrete time model. Evaluation of criteria are: domains of application, accuracy and economics. Particular ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a general computer model for a high power SCR that gives an accurate simulation of all important static and dynamic performance characteristics including such two-dimensional effects a spreading, gate isolation, and latch-in. Computer simulated vs. measured static characteristics of a representative device are listed for comparison. A comparison of a computer simulated vs. mea... View full abstract»

    State space techniques are employed to derive accurate models for buck, boost, and buck/boost converter power stages operating with and without zero-inductor-current dwell time. A generalized procedure is developed which treats the continuous-inductor-current mode without the dwell time as a special case of the discontinuous-current mode, when the dwell time vanishes. An abrupt change of system be... View full abstract»

    A steady state analysis technique is described for a naturally commutated inverter in which the output voltage is undefined during part of each operating cycle. This technique is unique in that it requires the solution of only one first order differential equation and the matching of only one end condition. The solution is valid for any load configuration provided only that its harmonic impedances... View full abstract»

    The phase controlled thyristor converter supplied from a weak power system is modeled in the time domain. A state variable formulation is used for the discrete nonlinear model. Local linerization is performed about an equilibrium state to obtain a small signal steady state model for such a thyristor converter system. The stability constraints for the digital controller parameters are also obtained... View full abstract»
