    The evolution of power electronics and its control has been mainly driven by industry applications and influenced by the development achieved in several technologies, such as power semiconductors, converter topologies, automatic control, and analog and digital electronics. Digital signal processors (DSPs), in particular, have experienced an exponential development in processing power, which until ... View full abstract»

    Power conversion systems are dependent on the performance and reliability of static converters. However, they are subject to frequent functional and environmental strains, which can induce failures. The anticipation of these failures is difficult but important so the operation of a system can be halted before a breakdown occurs. In the case of photovoltaic (PV) power plants, the system can be simp... View full abstract»

    The parameters of electrical energy, such as supply voltage amplitude, are very important, especially from the viewpoint of the final consumer with respect to sensitive loads connected to the grid. Dynamic states in the power grid-voltage sags and swells-might cause faults and defects to develop in sensitive loads. To mitigate unwanted effects, many topologies of ac/ac converters are implemented a... View full abstract»

    Access to emergency numbers such as 911 or 112 is generally universally available to cell phone users. Nevertheless, emergencies may occur in areas without cell phone coverage, for example, in remote areas frequented by climbers or hikers. In this article, we describe the design, development, and evaluation of a global system for mobile communications (GSM) base station that can be placed in a veh... View full abstract»

    At the turn of the 20th century, when electric light superseded chemically fueled lamps, new uses of light began to emerge. They regarded information processing and transmission rather than power and within a few decades resulted in the technological domain of photonics. These applications consisted of photocells, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), lasers, fiber optics, and holography. In that same spa... View full abstract»
