Park, Jong-Hyoung ; Kim, Heung-Geun ; Nho, Eui-Cheol ; Chun, Tae-Won ; Cha, Honnyong ;
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 19, issue 3, 2014, Pages 201~210
DOI : 10.6113/TKPE.2014.19.3.201
In this paper, dc-link voltage control of a grid-connected QZSI is presented. Since the input current of the ZSI is discontinuous, a capacity with relatively large capacitance should be connected to the output of the PV array in order to reduce the current ripple. Due to the presence of the impedance network inductor in series with the PV array, the QZSI can achieve continuous input current flow. Several dc-link voltage control methods are compared and the method for power quality improvement is also presented. The performance of the proposed method is verified through both simulation and experimental results.

This paper proposes a low voltage high current LLC resonant converter for Green PC. Green PC is composed of a lot of blade PCs, and it is a centralized system to manage them in computer center. Green PC should require that its power supplies have several characteristics such as low output voltage, high output current, and high power conversion efficiency. Conventional PSFB (Phase Shift Full Bridge) converter is usually used as DC/DC converter for computer power supply because it has high power conversion efficiency thanks to ZVS (Zero Voltage Switching) operation under middle and high load conditions. However, this converter has some problems such as large switching noise and limitation of ZVS operation under light load condition. In order to improve the performance of power supply for Green PC, a new power supply using popular high efficiency LLC resonant converter for low voltage and high current application is proposed in this paper. The proposed power supply has ZVS capability over the entire load range, thus resulting in good efficiency and high switching frequency. Experimental results verify the performance of the proposed power supply for Green PC using 2[kW] (19[V], 105[A]) rated prototype converter.

Input current ripple and harmonic components of the power device are main causes of electromagnetic interference (EMI). Although the discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) operation can reduce harmonic components of the power device by reducing reverse recovery current of diode and turn-off voltage spikes of the switch, input current ripple increases due to high peak to peak inductor current. Therefore, in this paper, frequency control algorithm is proposed to reduce the input current ripple of DCM operated interleaved boost converter. In the proposed algorithm, duty ratio is fixed either 0.33 or 0.67 to minimize the input current ripple and the switching frequency is controlled according to operating conditions. 600 W 3-phase interleaved boost converter prototype system is built to verify proposed algorithm.

Ryu, Hyung-Min ;
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 19, issue 3, 2014, Pages 227~232
DOI : 10.6113/TKPE.2014.19.3.227
A highly efficient MOSFET inverter for single-phase grid-connected photovoltaic power generation systems is presented in this paper. It is a full-MOSFET version of the conventional transformerless full-bridge inverter with dual L-C filters using unipolar PWM. The key idea lies on smart pre switching(SPS), which can make the large switching loss due to a poor reverse recovery of the MOSFET`s body diode reduced dramatically. The validity of the proposed inverter is verified by experiment.

It is DC power that Output of renewable energy being recently developed and researched. Also, demand of DC power will expect to proliferate due to increase of digital load. Thus, DC distribution system providing high quality of power and reliability has emerged as a new distribution system. If the conventional distribution systems are substituted by proposed DC distribution system, the output of renewable energy can be connected with distribution systems under minimum power conversion. Therefore, in the event of connection with DC load, it can construct an efficient distribution system. In this paper, the integrated parallel operation of power conversion module for DC distribution system is proposed. Also, this paper proposed modularization of power conversion devices for DC distribution system and power control for parallel operation of large capacity system. DC distribution system consists of three power conversion modules such as AC/DC power conversion module 2 set, ESS module 1 set. DC distribution system controls suitable operation depending on the status of the DC power distribution system and load. Integrated operation of these systems is verified by simulation and experiment results.

The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 19, issue 3, 2014, Pages 249~256
DOI : 10.6113/TKPE.2014.19.3.249
This paper proposes a torque control method of permanent magnet synchronous motor, which has small torque ripple. The proposed control method is using the finite control set-model predictive control(FCS-MPC) strategy. An optimal input voltage vector minimizing a cost function is chosen among 6 passible active input voltage vectors following the FCS-MPC strategy. Then, a modulation factor for the optimal input voltage vector is computed to minimize the torque ripple. Thus, the proposed control method yields fast torque response and small torque ripple. The efficacy of the proposed method was verified through simulation and experiment.

This paper proposes a simple compensation method for switches of the unclamped voltage in the three-level NPC inverter. Voltages of inner-switches can be unclamped in the three-level NPC (neutral point clamped) inverter. It can cause the problem of the switch fault accident. By adding a capacitor, switches of the unclamped voltage can be clamped. Through the analysis of the circuit, the reason behind switches being unclamped was verified which leads to the solution method that designs a compensation capacitor. The proposed method was validated through the simulation and experimental results.

In a single-phase grid-connected power system consisting of a dc-dc converter and a dc-ac converter, the current drawn from renewable energy sources has a tendency to be pulsated and contains double-fundamental frequency ripple components, which results in several drawback such as a power harvesting loss and a shortening of the energy source`s life. This paper presents a new double-fundamental current reduction-scheme with a fast dc-link voltage loop for two-stage dc-dc-ac grid connected systems. In the frequency domain, an adequate control design is performed based on the small-signal transfer function of a two-stage dc-dc-ac converter. To verify the effectiveness of proposed control algorithm, a 1 kW hardware prototype has been built and experimental results are presented.

This paper carries out a series of analysis of power system using Gallium Nitride (GaN) FET which has wide band gap (WBG) characteristics comparing to conventional Si MOSFET-used power system. At first, for comparison of each semiconductor device, the switching-transient parameter is quantitatively extracted from released information of GaN FET.

Also, in order to enable a representative assessment on the power system level, Si MOSFET and GaN FET are applied to the most common structure of power system, full-bridge, and each power systems are compared based on various criteria, such as performance, efficiency and power density. The entire process is verified with the aid of mathematical analysis and simulation.
Control of the Z-Source Inverter using Average Model
Lee, Kwang-Woon ;
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 19, issue 3, 2014, Pages 290~296
DOI : 10.6113/TKPE.2014.19.3.290
This paper presents a design strategy for the control of the Z-source inverter (ZSI). For the Z-network capacitor voltage control, the average current model is derived to describe the dynamics of the voltage control and the controller outputs the average current command for the capacitor. Z-network inductor current reference is derived from the average current model of the Z-network capacitor. The inner current control loop outputs the average voltage command for the Z-network inductor and the shoot-through duty ratio of the ZSI is calculated from the output using the average voltage model of the Z-network inductor. The gain values of the current and voltage controllers are directly obtained by the Z-network parameters and desired bandwidth of each controller without a gain tuning process.
