  • In order to realize an efficient and stable X-band harmonic generator, a 100 MHz frequency multiplier, an impulse generator using SRD(Step Recovery Diode) module, and a narrow-band bandpass waveguide filter have been designed and tested. By properly combining these devices an X-band harmonic generator has been realized. The output power of the harmonic generator was measured to be -1.5 dBm at 9 GHz which is the 90th harmonic of the 100MHz input. The power fluctuation of the harmonic generator due to temperature variation was observed to the about 0.15 dB during 24 hours of 4\ulcorner temperature variation.

  • This paper presents the design and implementation of a 5kW programmable three-phase harmonic generator, which is capable of generating sinusoidal output voltages with adjustable output amplitude and frequency over a wide range as well as arbitrary waveforms. The considered harmonic generator is a linear power amplifier type. This system consists mainly of a power converter to generate and amplify waveform signals, a controller to control the desired output signal and measure the output parameters including voltage and current, and a control program to set the desired output and display the output values. The prototype programmable three-phase harmonic generator has been constructed and tested. Test results show that the developed programmable three-phase harmonic generator performs well.

  • Since the stator winding of High-Speed Permanent Magnet Generator (HSPMG) has few winding turns and low inductance value, it is more prone to be influenced by harmonic current. Moreover, the operation efficiency and the torque stability of HSPMG will be greatly influenced by harmonic current. Taking a 117 kW, 60 000 rpm HSPMG as an example, in order to analyze the effects of harmonic current on HSPMG in this paper, the 2-D finite element electromagnetic field model of the generator was established and the correctness of the model was verified by testing the generator prototype. Based on the model, the losses and torque of the generator under different frequency harmonic current were studied. The change rules of the losses and torque were found out. Based on the analysis of the influence of the harmonic phase angle on torque ripple, it is found that the torque ripple could be weakened through changing the harmonic phase angle. Through the analysis of eddy current density in rotor, the change mechanism of the rotor eddy current loss was revealed. These conclusions can contribute to reduce harmonic loss, prevent demagnetization fault and optimize torque ripple of HSPMG used in distributed power supply system.

  • The content of harmonic current increases with an increase in the number of power electronic devices in power grid. When a generator is directly connected to the power grid through a step-up transformer, the influence of the harmonic currents on the generator is inevitable. To study the influences of harmonics on generators, a 24-MW bulb tubular turbine generator is taken as an example in this paper. A 2-D transient electromagnetic field model is established. Through a comparative analysis of the data of experiments and simulations, the correctness of the model is verified. The values of the air gap magnetic density, torque and losses of the generator under various conditions are calculated using the finite element method. Taking the rated condition as a reference, the influence of the harmonic currents on the magnetic flux density is analyzed. It is confirmed that the time harmonic is a key factor affecting the generator performance. At the same time, the effects of harmonic currents on the torque ripple, average torque and eddy current loss of the generator are studied, and the mechanism of the variation of the eddy current loss is also discussed.

  • In recent years, the induction machines are increasingly being used as self-excited induction generators (SEIG). This generator is especially widely employed for small-scale power plants driven by renewable energy sources. The application of power electronic components in the induction generator control (IGC) and the loading of SEIG using nonlinear loads will generate harmonic currents. This paper analyzes the propogation of harmonic currents on the SEIG with nonlinear loads. Transfer function method in the frequency domain is used to calculate the gain and phase angle of each harmonic current component which are generated by a nonlinear loads. Through the superposition approach, this method has also been used to analyze the propagation of harmonic currents from nonlinear load to the stator windings. The simulation for the propagation of harmonic currents for a 4 pole, 1.5 kW, 50Hz, 3.5A, Y-connected, rotor-cage SEIG with energy-saving lamps, have provided results almost the same with the experiment. It can prove that the validity of the proposed models and methods. The study results showed that the propagation of harmonic currents on the stator windings rejects high order harmonics and attenuates low order harmonics, consequently THDI diminish significantly on the stator windings.

  • In this paper, we compared the performance of the Right Handed Nonlinear Transmission Line (RH-NLTL) and Left Handed Nonlinear Transmission Line (LH-NLTL) as a harmonic generator. For a performance comparison, we fabricated both a RH-NLTL and a LH-NLTL harmonic generator whose operational bandwidth is from 0.5 GHz to 1.5 GHz. Under the each condition for the RH-NLTL and the LH-NLTL to maximize second harmonic, the output power of the second harmonic was 9.33 dB lower than the input power for the RH-NLTL and 12.67 dB lower than the input power for the LH-NLTL. Under the each condition for the RH-NLTL and the LH-NLTL to maximize third harmonic, the output power of the third harmonic was 13.33 dB lower than the input power for the RH-NLTL and 14.83dB lower than the input power for the LH-NLTL. Also, we have observed that, generatlly, a RH-NLTL is useful in generating various multiple harmonics and a LH-NLTL is useful in generating a specific order of harmonic by adjusting a proper DC vias, input frequency and input power. These tendencies could be a good guideline to use NLTLs as a frequency multiplier.

  • In this paper, a new type predistorter using a low frequency intermodulation signals terms of harmonic generator is proposed. A vector modulator, in which fundamental signal is modulated with low frequency intermodulation signals derived from harmonic generator, generates predistorted third and fifth IM components. Using predistorted signals, intermodulation distortion signals of power amplifier suppressed. The suggested predistorter has been manufactured to operate in Korean PCS base-station transmitting band (1840~1870MHz). The test results show that the third IMD signal level is reduced more than 20dB and the fifth IMD signal is reduced about 10dB for CW two-tone signals. The predistorter improves the Adjacent Channel Power Ratio (ACPR) more than 10dB for CDMA (IS-95) signals.

  • Harmonic distortions in current waveform may cause significant problems in electric power system facility and operation. This paper presents an adaptive parameter estimation method to detect harmonic current components caused by nonlinear loads. In addition, a coordination strategy for multiple inverter-interfaced distributed generators to compensate the harmonic currents is discussed. The coordination strategy is realized by distributing the harmonic compensation participation index to individual distributed generators. The harmonic compensation participation index can be determined by the amount of remaining power generation capacity of each distributed generator. Simulation results based on switching-level inverter models show that the proposed harmonic detection method has good performance and the coordination strategy can improve harmonic problems efficiently.

  • Cause of excessive vibration with twice the rotational speed of a two-pole generator rotor for the fossil power plants was investigated. The two-pole generator rotor, treated as a typically asymmetric rotor in vibration analysis, produces asynchronous vibration with twice the rotational speed, sub-harmonic critical speeds, and potentially unstable operating zones due to its own inertia and/or stiffness asymmetry. This paper introduces a practical balancing procedure, and presents the results of the investigation on sources of the excessive vibration based on the experimental vibration data of the asymmetric two-pole rotor in balancing.
