In recent years, the power demand has been increasing steadily and the occurrence of maximum power demand has been moving from the summer season to the winter season in Korea. And since the control of electric power supply and demand is more important under those situations, a micro-grid system began to emerge as a keyword for the sTable operation of electric power system. A micro-gird power system is composed of various kinds of distributed generators(DG) such as small diesel generator, wind turbine, photo-voltaic generator and energy storage system(ESS). This paper introduces a method to determine the optimal capacities of the distributed generators which are installed in a stand-alone type of microgrid power system based on the fundamental proportion of diesel generator. At first, the fundamental proportion of diesel generator will be determined by changing from 0 to 50 percent. And then we will optimize the capacities of renewable energy resources and ESS according to load patterns. Lastly, after recalculating the capacity of ESS with consideration for SOC constraints, the optimal capacities of distributed generators will be decided.

In order to maintain customer voltages within allowable limit(
) as much as possible, tap operation strategy of SVR(Step Voltage Regulator) installed in distribution system is very important, considering the scheduled delay time(30 sec) of SVR. However, the compensation of BESS(Battery Energy Storage System) during the delay time of SVR is being required because the customer voltages in distribution system interconnected with PV(Photovoltaic) system have a difficultly to be kept within allowable limit. Therefore, this paper presents the optimal voltage stabilization method in distribution system by using coordination operation algorithm between BESS and SVR. It is confirmed that customer voltage in distribution system can be maintained within allowable limit(

DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2016.65.2.279
In this paper, a cogging torque of IPM(Interior Permanent Magnet)-type BLDC motor is analyzed by FE program and the optimized notch on the rotor surface is designed to minimize the torque ripple. A differential evolution strategy algorithm and a response surface method are employed to optimize the rotor notch. In order to verify the proposed algorithm, an IPM BLDC motor is used, which is 50 kW, 8 poles, 48 slots and 1200 rpm at the rated speed. Its characteristics of the motor is calculated by FE program and 4 design variables are set on the rotor notch. The initial shape of the notch is like a non-symmetric half-elliptic and it is optimized by the developed algorithm. The cogging torque of the final model is reduced to
of the initial, which is about 71 % reduction. Consequently, the proposed algorithm for the cogging torque reduction of IPM-type BLDC motor using the rotor notch design seems to be very useful to a mechanical design for reducing noise and vibration.

This paper proposes a fault diagnosis method for an open-fault in inverter driving five-phase induction motor. The five-phase induction motor has a high output torque and small torque ripple in comparison to three-phase. The best advantage of the five-phase induction motor is fault diagnosis and tolerant control using redundancy of phases. This paper uses an inverter as a power converter for driving a five-phase induction motor. If a switch of inverter occurs to the open-fault, this problem is the influence on the output current and output torque. To solve this problem, there is need of an accurate diagnosis and fault switch distinction. Therefore, this paper propose a fault detection method of the open-fault switches for the fault diagnosis. First, analyzing the pattern for the open-circuit fault of one phase. next, analyzing the pattern for the open-circuit fault of each inverter switches. Through the pattern analysis, It defines the scope of each of the failure switch. Thereafter, By using an algorithm that proposes to perform a fault diagnosis method. The proposed algorithm is verified from the experiment with the 1.5 kW five-phase induction motor.

Kim, Tae-Hun ; Lee, Woo-Cheol ;
The Transactions of The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers, volume 65, issue 2, 2016, Pages 311~318
DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2016.65.2.311
This paper is a study on the neutral point voltage balancing of the three-phase 3-level T-type inverter using the predictive control techniques. Recently, multi-level inverter has been attracting attention as the advantages such as efficiency improving and harmonic reduction. Especially, the T-type inverter topology is advantageous in low DC-link voltage. However, in case of the prediction control, it takes a lot of time, because there exist 27 voltage vectors and it has to be calculated according to the respective voltage vectors. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a method to implement predictive control techniques while reducing the operation time. In order to reduce the operation time, the predictive control is implemented by using the minimum voltage vector except for the unnecessary voltage vector. The result of the implemented predictive control is added to the SPWM by using the offset voltage. It was verified through simulation and experimental results.

DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2016.65.2.319
This paper proposes a simplified SVPWM for three level inverters in transformerless photovoltaic (PV) systems. With the proposed SVPWM the three level space vector (SV) diagram is divided into only six sectors as in conventional two level SV diagram in such a way that only seven SVs are used among all the available SVs of three level inverter. The main features of the proposed SVPWM are that it is simple to implement, less switching losses as compared to conventional SVPWM and most importantly it eliminates the leakage currents in transformerless PV systems. Detailed theoretical analysis of the proposed SVPWM are presented and verified by numerical simulations and experimental results.

DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2016.65.2.329
In this paper, we demonstrate a Non-Foster matching method for an electrically small antenna to improve the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of communication link. For the experiment, we used a general FM antenna whose resonance frequency is about 52-57 MHz and a floating type Linvill negative impedance converter(NIC)-based circuit as a Non-Foster matching element. By implementing the Non-Foster circuit to cover FM band, we can achieve a wide bandwidth matching covers 40-200 MHz. Our measurement shows 3-7 dB improvement of SNR for the same bandwidth though there are several spikes which means no improvement of SNR in the band.

In general, a yawing motion concept is used for the lateral control of one wheel robot where the gimbal system is located horizontally. In this paper, another concept of the vertically located gimbal system is presented for the same purpose. Although the vertical concept undergoes an instability more easily than the horizontal one, the pitching motion of the gyroscopic effect is considered. Firstly, the trade-off relation between two balancing concepts are investigated by comparing the gyroscopic mechanism. Secondly, the dynamic model for the problem of the proposed concept is derived using the oscillatory inverted stick model. Thirdly, the stability of the model is analyzed using the phase trajectory method. Finally, the control performance of the system by a vibration controller is simulated.

We propose an obstacle detection algorithm for unmanned ground vehicle on uneven terrain. The key ideas of the proposed algorithm are the use of two-layer laser range data to calculate the gradient of a target, which is characterized as either ground or obstacles. The proposed obstacle detection algorithm includes 4-steps: 1) Obtain the distance data for each angle from multiple lidars or a multi-layer scan lidar. 2) Calcualate the gradient for each angle of the uneven terrain. 3) Determine ground or obstacle for each angle on the basis of reference gradient. 4) Generate a new distance data for each angle for a virtual laser scanner. The proposed algorithm is verified by various experiments.

The purpose of this study was to investigate possible age differences in the attenuation of acceleration in the upper body (from pelvis through shoulder to head) during fast walking. Thirty young and 29 elderly subjects participated in this study. Wireless acceleration sensors were attached on head, shoulder, and pelvis. Subjects performed two trials of fast walking on a treadmill, where the fast speed was defined as 1.5 times of the comfortable speed. Root-mean-squared (RMS) accelerations of each axis were compared with age group and sensor position as independent factors. In the AP direction, the pelvis acceleration was greater in the young and the shoulder-to-head attenuation was also greater in the young (p<0.001), so that the head acceleration was comparable between age groups (p

Power plants maintenance data is to be sent to management server system via a communication network. In this case, reliable communication network is required. Transmission of the power plants maintenance data is used in the wired communication network or wireless communication network. PLC communication network is a kind of wired communication network. However PLC communication network is easily affected by noise. On the vulnerable areas in power line system, such as a mountain or rural areas, it is difficult to form a power line communication network. For a wireless communication, environment are also influenced factors in wireless communication. Harsh environmental factors are bring the communication characteristic degradation. In such areas it can be used a combination of two networks and in this way the complementary function can be achieved. Power plants are distributed in various regions across the country.

DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2016.65.2.360
The rare earth output is concentrated in limited number of countries including China. Also the necessity for development of non-rare earth motor is getting signified due to the rapid increase of rare earth price and resource weaponizing policies. Non-rare earth motor is generally designed as spoke type PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) in order to maximize the power density. Such spoke type PMSM has advantage in concentrating the flux but demonstrates lower efficiency compared to permanent magnet using Nd (Neodymium) permanent magnet. Therefore, applications with strong necessity for efficiency need rotor structure having improved efficiency compared to spoke type PMSM. Hence, this study suggested fan-shape type PMSM with somewhat lower power density but maximized efficiency. Fan-shape type PMSM is a rotor shape demonstrating outstanding reduction of iron loss compared to existing spoke type. Thus, this study analyzed the improvement of efficiency and reduction of loss arising from the suggested shape through parameter calculation.
