A Torque Estimation and Switching Angle Control of SRM using Neural Network
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 7, issue 6, 2002, Pages 509~516
This paper presents a simple torque estimation method and switching angle control of Switched Reluctance Motor(SRM) using Neural Network(NN). SRM has gaining much interest as industrial applications due to the simple structure and high efficiency. Adaptive switching angle control is essential for the optimal driving of SRM because of the driving characteristic varies with the load and speed. The proper switching angle which can increase the efficiency was investigated in this paper. NN was adapted to regulate the switching angle and nonlinear inductance modelling. Experimental result shows the validity of the switching angle controller.
Sensorless Control of a Permanent Magnet synchronous Motor with Compensation of the Parameter Variation
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 7, issue 6, 2002, Pages 517~523
A sensorless control of a PM synchronous motor with the compensation of the motor parameter variation is presented. The rotor position is estimated by using the d-axis and q-axis current errors between the real system and motor model of the position estimator. The stator resistance is measured at low speeds when the motor changes its rotating direction and the variation of the stator resistance and back emf constant caused by the temperature variation is compensated. The gains in the position estimator are also adapted according to the motor speeds.
Example Development of Medical Equipment Applying Power Electronics Technique
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 7, issue 6, 2002, Pages 524~530
A control of the body posture and movement is maintained by the vestibular system, vision, and proprioceptors. Afferent signals from those receptors are transmitted to the vestibular nuclear complex, and the efferent signals from the vestibular nuclear complex control the eye movement and skeletal muscle contract. The postural disturbance caused by loss of the vestibular function results in nausea, vomiting, vertigo and loss of craving for life. The purpose of this study is to develop a off-vertical rotatory system for evaluating the function of semicircular canals and otolith organs, selectively, and visual stimulation system for- stimulation with horizontal, vortical and 3D patterns. The Off-vortical axis rotator is composed of a comportable chair, a DC servo-motor with reducer and a tilting table controlled by PMSM. And a double feedback loop system containing a velocity feedback loop and a position feedback loop is applied to the servo controlled rotatory chair system. Horizontal, vertical, and 3D patterns of the visual stimulation for applying head mounted display are developed. And wireless portable systems for optokinetic stimulation and recording system of the eye movement is also constructed. The gain, phase, and symmetry is obtained from analysis of the eye movement induced by vestibular and visual stimulation. Detailed data were described.

This paper investigates the problem of the speed controller of conventional speed sensorless stator flux-oriented(SFO) induction motor drive, and proposes a robust speed controller to solve the conventional problem. In the proposed method, a robust speed controller for speed sensorless SFO system Is designed by taking advantage of disturbance torque observer and using feedforward.
Rotor Position Detection of Toroidal Switched Reluctance Motor Using Search Coils
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 7, issue 6, 2002, Pages 537~545
This paper presents a new method of detecting rotor position in Toroidal Switched Reluctance Motor(TSRM). In this paper, low cost and robust characteristics of rotor position detection method are focused in order to compensate for disadvantage of existing sensors. Search coils wound around stator poles are used for detection of rotor position in TSRM. Rotor position detection is achieved through electromotive force patterns induced by time-varying flux linkage in the search coils and then adequate phase is excited for drive. The validity of the method is verified by experimental results.
A Method for Slow Component Velocity Measurement of Nystagmus Eye Movements using RLSM
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 7, issue 6, 2002, Pages 546~553
A control of the body posture and movement is maintained by the vestibular system, vision, and proprioceptors. Especially, vestibular system has a very important function that controls the eye movement through vestibuloocular reflex and contraction of skeletal muscles through vestibulospinal reflex. However, postural disturbance caused by loss of vestibular function results in nausea, vomiting, vertigo and loss of craving for life. Lose of vestibular function leads to abnormal reflex of eye movements named nystagmus. Analysis of the nystagmus is needed to diagnose the vertigo, which is performed by means of electrooculography(EOG). The purpose of this study is to develop a computerized system for data processing and an algorithm for the automatic evaluation of the slow component velocity(SCV) of nystagmus induced by optokinetic(OKN) stimulation system. A new algorithm using recursive least square method(RLSM) to detect SCV of nystagmus is suggested in this paper. This method allows a fast and precise evaluation of the nystagmus, through artifact rejection techniques. The results are depicted in this paper.
A New Sensorless Control Scheme Using Simple Duty Feedback Technique in DC/DC Converters
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 7, issue 6, 2002, Pages 554~562
This paper presents a new sensorless control scheme using simple duty signal feedback technique in DC/DC converters. The proposed Duty Feedback Control(DFC) has the characteristics that they show the same as operation performance of current mode control by using duty feedback technique without current sensor as well as present faster dynamic response performance than conventional Sensorless Current Mode(SCM) control in case that input source is perturbed by step change or DC input source includes the harmonics. Also, the proposed control scheme has good noise immunity and simple control circuits since they have one feedback loop, and can be applied to all DC/DC converters. The concept and control principles of the proposed control scheme are explained in detail and the validity of the proposed control scheme is verified through several interesting simulated and experimental results.
Study of 60Hz Transformer-less High Frequency Linked Grid-Connected Power Conditioners for Photovoltaic Power System
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 7, issue 6, 2002, Pages 563~569
This paper proposes an inverter for the grid-connected photovoltaic system based on the transformer-less inverter. This system consists of a high frequency DC-DC converter, high frequency transformer, diode bridge rectifiers, a DC filter, a low frequency inverter, and an AC filter. The 20kHz switched high frequency converter is used to generate bipolar PWM pulse, and the high frequency transformer transforms its voltage twice, which is subsequently rectified by diode bridge rectifiers for a full-wave rectified 60 Hz sine wave power output. Even though the high frequency link system needs more power semiconductors, a reduced size, light weight, and saved parts cost make this system more comparative than other power conditioning systems due to elimination of 60Hz transformer.
Module-Type Switching Rectifier for Cathodic Protection of Underground and Maritime Metallic Constructions
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 7, issue 6, 2002, Pages 570~578
Cathodic protection is widely used to prevent corrosion of steel materials buried in the underground and sea. As a rectifier for cathodic protection, the conventional phase-controlled rectifiers have been used so far in spite of such shortcomings as large volume, heavy weight and floor power factor. In order to overcome such disadvantages, this paper proposes a new module-type switching rectifier for cathodic protection, which is composed of two parts, namely, AC/DC converter and module- type DC/DC converter. The AC/DC converter is a single-phase IGBT PWM rectifier, thus resulting in almost unity power factor and controlled DC output voltage. The module-type DC/DC converter operates under ZVS/ZCS switching condition to permit high frequency switching operation. It enables to use high-frequency transformer for electrical isolation, thus reducing volume and weight of overall system and improving system efficiency. It should be anticipated that the proposed rectifier techniques apply to the similar technical areas.
A Study on a Novel PMSM Sensorless Control Scheme Based on Back-emf Phase
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 7, issue 6, 2002, Pages 579~586
With increase of servo motor in industrial and home application, a number of papers related to PMSM control have been researched. Among them, sensorless control schemes are especially concerned in a view point of their cost reduction. In a conventional approach, a rotor position is generally estimated by the integration of estimated rotor speed. In this method, because of their tight relationship between the amplitude of back-emf and rotor position, it is somewhat difficult to find two parameters at the same time. To solve this problem, a novel sensorless control scheme is proposed. It utilizes a back-emf normalization, so that it does not require the variables related with the amplitude of back-emf. The validity of the proposed control scheme is verified through experimental results.
Design and Control of a DC-DC Converter for Electric Vehicle Applications
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 7, issue 6, 2002, Pages 587~595
Recently, the electric vehicles which are powered by such sources as battery, solar cell, fuel-cell, and so forth attract increasing attention. However, the unit cell voltages of these power sources are so low that a number of cells should be stacked in series to drive the vehicle inverter systems, which increases the complexity of the structure of power source. In this paper, a high-efficiency high-power boost converter for electric vehicle applications, which is able to convert a relatively low source voltage into a sufficiently high regulated DC link voltage, is proposed, and the design guidelines and the experimental results are presented.
Harmonic Reduction of Diode Rectifiers by a New Zero-Sequence Current Injection Method
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 7, issue 6, 2002, Pages 596~603
In this paper a new harmonic reduction method of three-phase diode rectifiers is proposed to improve input current performance using the zero-sequence harmonics injection technique. The proposed mothed, based on the third-harmonic injection, employs two half-bridge inverters and two single-phase transformers to independently shape the positive and negative dc rail currents of the diode rectifier. The actively shaped zero-sequence harmonic currents are t]ten circulated through the ac side of the rectifier using a zigzag transformer This results in pure sinusoidal input currents in the three-phase diode rectifier. Experimental results on a 1.5kVA prototype are provided to validate the proposed technique.
