AC/DC Resonant Converter to Control for DC Arc furnace
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 1~8
When solving the problems of electric power quality the converters with high Power factor are useful for the DC arc furnace power supply. In this paper, resonant converters of 50(60) Hz AC to DC arc described, where in each period of network voltage the capacitor and inductor of an oscillatory circuit are switched from series into parallel and vice versa parametrically. The duration of series and parallel connection and also the transformation ratio are dependent on load. Parallel oscillatory circuit restricts the short circuit current. These converters have high power factor from no-load to short-circuit and fit very well to supply are furnaces.
A Novel Multilevel Inverter Employing Series Connected Transformers
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 9~16
This paper presents an novel multilevel inverter employing series connected transformers to reduce the harmonics of output voltage. The proposed inverter consists of several full-bridge modules and their corresponding transformers. Continuous output voltage levels can be generated from a suitable selection of turns ratio of transformer. And it appears an integral ratio to input DC source. Because of its series operation of transformers, output filter inductor is not required. The validity of the proposed system is verified through the experimental results using a 1.5 [kW] prototype, which can generate a 220

The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 17~23
To show a retina shape and thickness on the computer monitor, a laser has been used in Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope(SLO) equipment using the travelling difference. This method requires exact synchronous control of laser travelling in optic system to show a clear 3-dimensional image of retina. To obtain this image, this exact synchronism is very important for making the perfect plane scanning. In this study, a synchronous control of the galvanometer to make 3-dimensional retina image is presented. For the more, a very simple mathematical model of the galvanometer is approved by experimental result.
Development of the 120kV/70A High Voltage Switching Circuit with MOSFETs Operated by Simple Gate Drive Unit
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 24~29
A 120kV/70A high voltage switch has been installed at Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute(KAERI) in Taejon to supply power with Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research(KSTAR) Neutral Beam Injection(NBI) system. NBI system requires fast cutoff of the flower supply voltage for protection of the grid when arc detected and fast turn-on the voltage for sustaining the beam current. Therefore the high voltage switch and arc current detection circuit are important part of the NBI power supply. There are much need for high voltage solid state switches in NBI system and a broad area of applications. This switch consisted of 100 series connected MOSFETs and adopted the proposed simple and reliable gate drive circuit without bias supply. Various results taken during the commissioning phase with a 100kW resistive load and NBI source arc shown. This paper presents the detailed design of 120kV/70A high voltage MOSFETs switch and simple gate drive circuit. Problems with the high voltage switch and gate driver during thefabrication and test and solutions are also presented.
The Study on the Characteristics of the Load Sharing in SRM with the Parallel Operation of Phase Winding
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 30~39
In SRM driving, the current rate is directly related to the rate of switching device and in cost reduction, the Parallel switching operation is the alternatives because it has the smaller current rate through current division. There ire many investigations for the parallel switching operations to equaling the current division. However it remains many problems for practical usage. The reason Is that the switching characteristics are mainly relied on the different saturation voltage of each device etc. and these factors are not altered by a circuit designer. In order to compensate this problem, a proper resistance is experimently inserted to the switching device. But this method can not be the optimal solution. Therefore this paper propose a new parallel operation of SRM which uses a parallel phase winding to remove the traditional effect of switching device such as saturation voltage according to the division of current. Also the reliable and stable driving is improved through experiments and the detailed principles.
A Low-Cost Current-Sensing Scheme for MOSFET Motor Drives
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 40~47
A low-cost current-sensing scheme for the motor drives with MOSFET is described. Many motor drives usually employ the common current sensors to measure current for the purpose of control or protection. These current sensors, however, significantly burden the power circuit with the size and cost. The proposed current-sensing scheme utilizes information concerning MOSFET's On-voltage and On-resistance. An analogue circuit detecting On-voltage can overcome the above disadvantages because the circuit is small and is made at a low cost, and the fuzzy inference for On-resistance is also simply designed based on MOSFET's characteristics. The validity of this scheme will be experimentally verified by adopting the current control of a battery car.

The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 48~55
The design and analysis of a three-phase 6/8 structure SRM(switched reluctance motor) art described. The range of the stator ole arc and the rotor pole arc of the motor we analyzed in the linear region. The optimum range of the stator pole arc and the turn-off angle of the main switches in the power converter are given with the 2-D finite element electro-magnetic field calculation of the motor and the nonlinear simulation. Test results of the prototype are discussed. This type is good for high efficiency drive because the drive circuit is simple and current density and copper loss of the winding are law.
Optimum Torque Control Method for BLDC Motor with Minimum Torque Pulsation
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 56~63
This paper studies that torque model considered with decaying phase back-EMF is different In conduction and commutation period and analyzes the torque pulsation components mathematically. In this paper, it is proposed a novel method to suppress torque pulsation due to commutation time. First, it propose commutation delay time control method, which is to compensate current slope of rising phase and decaying phase to control commutation time. Current ripple is minimized at non-commutating current and torque ripple is reduced below critical speed range that dc link voltage is the same as four times of back-EMF voltage. However, torque ripple still exists due to the relation with back-EMF and commutating current and it is increased on a large scale above critical speed range, especially. Secondly, proposed method is commutation time control, which is considered with torque pulsation due to the relation of back-EMF and commutating current. Through the proposed method, the torque pulsation can be minimized in the whole speed range as well as range over critical speed.

Robust Speed Control Scheme for Torsional Vibration Suppression of Two Mass System
The Transactions of the Korean Institute of Power Electronics, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 80~88
In this paper, the new robust torsional vibration suppression control scheme is proposed for the two mass system. A reduced order state feedback controller where the motor speed and the observed torsional torque are fed back and the PI controller are proposed as the torsional vibration suppression controller. Using the estimated mechanical parameters by off-line RLS(Recursive Least Square) algorithms, the speed controller for torsional vibration suppression is designed and its gains are determined using the Kharitonov robust control theory. The Kharitonov robust control theory can obtain the robust stability with a specified stability margin and a damping limit and the good performance of vibration suppression although if the parameters are varied within some specified limit. The effectiveness and usefulness of the proposed schemes are verified with the simulation and the experimental results on the fully-digitalized 5.5kW two mass system.
