    An MC is a direct AC-AC converter that has benefits of high reliability, small size, and high efficiency over a conventional PWM converter-inverter system. This article introduced the Yaskawa MC product specifications, applications, and techniques that helped commercialization of a low-voltage and medium-voltage MC. The 9-114 kVA (200 V and 400 V classes) for a low voltage MC and 200-6,000 kVA (3.3 kV, 6.6 kV) for a medium-voltage MC have thus far been commercialized. Three typical applications of an MC were also introduced along with the related technology that helped to achieve desired results for each application. The application of an MC is still expanding to other fields in industry. Authors are continuing their efforts in improving performance and expanding the product lineup. View full abstract»

    This article presents the benefits of using field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based controllers for power electronics and drive applications. For this purpose, an algorithm perspective is first proposed, where it is stated that, depending on the intrinsic parallelism properties as well as level of complexity, it makes sense to implement each control algorithm on a specific hardware and/or software architecture to get the best performances in terms of execution time or the best ratio performance versus cost. Then, an application perspective is proposed where the constraints specifically linked to the control of power converters are discussed. View full abstract»

    Energy-storage systems are critical elements of many products from consumer electronics to advanced electric drive vehicles. However, battery electronics and management systems are needed for proper operation of these energy storage systems with batteries. In this article, the BMS functions have been presented, and the design considerations have been reviewed. Three typical applications-cell phones, laptop computers, and hybrid EVs-have been explained in detail. For each application, a typical hardware topology has been explained, followed by a discussion on the corresponding functions and control strategies. View full abstract»

    The transmission of bulk power over long distances is a very current topic in the worldwide energy sector. An excellent example is the transmission system of Madeira River Hydropower Generation Project in Brazil, which includes two 2,400-km transmission lines, designed to transmit 3,150 MW through each HVDC link. In fact, long transmission trunks enable the use of natural resources that are far from major load centers as well as provide the interconnection of large power systems. View full abstract»

    The asynchronous JavaScript and extensible markup language (XML) (AJAX) technologies have revolutionized the world of Web applications in recent years. This work describes some technical issues from the CyberOPC application protocol based on reverse AJAX and JavaScript object notation (JSON) remote procedure call (RPC). Initially created for monitoring computer numerical control (CNC) tools, this application protocol adopts streaming techniques for industrial communication technologies over Internet protocol (IP)-based networks and represents an open and performing alternative for monitoring protocols such as OPC and MTConnect.

  • When Cars Went Electric, Part One [Historical]

    In recent years, increasing attention to environmental pollution and concern about the depletion of oil reserves have boosted an interest in electric and hybrid cars as viable alternatives to gasoline-powered automobiles. R&D programs copiously supported in many countries are notably aimed at developing advanced management systems, high-efficiency motors, and innovative batteries with high energy densities, both of the rechargeable and fuel-cell types. When we think of electric vehicles in this framework, they appear to us as future technologies in comparison with conventional internal combustion engines (ICEs). However, we may be surprised to learn that, a century ago, electric cars were far in advance of gasoline cars. View full abstract»
