ANALYSIS OF BIPOLAR PWM FUNCTIONS USING DISCRETE COMPLEX FOURIER TRANSFORM IN MATLAB
- Dobrucký B; Beňová M; Marčoková M; Šul R
Abstract. The paper deals with the discrete complex Fourier transform which has been considered for both three- and two phase orthogonal voltages and currents of systems. The investigated systems are power electronic converters supplying alternating current motors. Output voltages of them are strongly non-harmonic ones, so they must be pulse-modulated due to requested nearly sinusoidal currents with low total harmonic distortion. Modelling and simulation experiment results of halfbridge matrix converter for both steady- and transient states are given under substitution of the equivalence scheme of the electric motor by resistive-inductive load and back induced voltage. The results worked-out in the...

A Structural Empirical Model of R&D, Firm Heterogeneity and Industry Evolution,” Working Paper
- Yi Xu
This paper develops and estimates a dynamic industry equilibrium model of R&D, R&D spill-overs, and productivity evolution of manufacturing plants in the Korean electric motor industry from 1991 to 1996. Plant-level decisions for R&D, physical capital investment, entry, and exit are integrated in an equilibrium model with imperfectly competitive product market. Estimates of the structural parameters explains observed heterogeneity in plant R&D choice, size, and turnover, and quantifies how R&D and R&D spill-overs drive the change of plant productivity and industry structure. Given the structural estimates, I study an important policy question: how does product market competition affect individual firm...
Modeling and Simulation of an Electric Scooter Driven by a Single-Phase Induction Motor
- C. Sukcharoen; T. Kulworawanichapong
Abstract:- An electric vehicle driven by DC motors has been widely used for several applications. In this paper, replacement of the DC motor by a single-phase induction motor on the electric vehicle is proposed. Low cost and less maintenance make the single-phase induction motor more impressive although a complicated inverter onboard the vehicle is required. This paper investigates this possibility through a whole system of electric vehicle movement simulation. The whole system simulation consists of three main parts: 1) power supply interface 2) motor performance calculation and 3) vehicle movement simulation. The electric scooter of 0.26 kW rating was employed...

The dryer consists of a vertical column 400mm diameter with a physical height of 2960mm. A regulated centrifugal blower that generated air flow at three different flow rates (.043 kg/s, 0.05 kg/s and 0.056 kg/s) to fluidize a bed of cassava particulates in turn was powered by a 1.5 Hp electric motor. The air flow was heated by a regulated electric heater to predetermined drying temperature of 120 o C. The mass of cassava particulate fed into the dryer per batch is 1.555kg. One...
Design And Testing Of 3-Phase Converter Applicable To Four Quadrant Operation
- B. Ramu; G. Suresh Babu
It is needless to say that four quadrant principle plays a vital role in industrial applications.Running a machine both in motoring and generating action illustrates the four quadrant operation. In electric locomotives, the motor may run clock wise and anti clockwise, and the torque may act either with or against the direction of rotation. In other words the speed and torque may be positive or negative. An attempt is made in this paper to demonstrate this principle by designing the required converter. Here, converter performs dual function i.e. both as rectifier (AC to DC) and inverter (DC to AC) Though...
Transdesign Of A Three Phase Squirrel Cage Induction Motor
- O. A. Akinsanya
Transdesign is the process of converting an idea that has already been used into another one by adding compensation or removing an information in order to modify it to suit a particular purpose. This paper presents the redesign concept as a radical method of revamping a dead electric motor back to usefulness. Data for this paper was got from direct measurement of parameter of a 2.5Hp discarded induction motor, while additional data were obtained from secondary sources. Combining the measured parameter with the assumed empirical constant, the wire guage was found to be 27 while the number of conduction/slot/phase was.66.With...

Abstract — Means of vertical transportation, for both people and other loads, have been employed by mankind since ancient times.In early agricultural societies, these devices relied on men, animal or water power to lift the load. Rudimentary rope and pulley arrangements were used to support and move the required weight. The Industrial Revolution brought with it a number of technological advancements. Machine power allowed for fast developments and safety systems were introduced. In 1880, the first electric motor was used to power a lift. Led by ever growing needs in the industry, with the necessity of moving great amounts of...
Using a fingertip tactile device to substitute kinesthetic feedback in haptic interaction,” Haptics: Generating and Perceiving Tangible Sensations
- Domenico Prattichizzo; Claudio Pacchierotti; Stefano Cenci; Kouta Minamizawa; Giulio Rosati
Abstract. A prototype of a joystick where the kinesthetic feedback is substituted by tactile feedback is proposed. Tactile feedback is provided by a wearable device able to apply vertical stress to the fingertip in contact with the joystick. To test the device, rigid wall rendering is considered. Preliminary experiments show that the sensation of touching a virtual wall using the force feedback provided by the electric motor of the joystick is nearly indistinguishable from the sensation felt by the user using the tactile display only. The proposed device does not suffer from typical stability issues of teleoperation systems and is...
Hybrid Electric Vehicle Simulation
- Matthew Alan Merkle; Dr. Douglas; J. Nelson; Dr. Jaime; De La Ree; Matthew A. Merkle
A growing dependence on foreign oil, along with a heightened concern over the environmental impact of personal transportation, had led the U. S. government to investigate and sponsor research into advanced transportation concepts. One of these future technologies is the hybrid electric vehicle (HEV), typically featuring both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor, with the goal of producing fewer emissions while obtaining superior fuel economy. While vehicles such as the Virginia Tech designed and built HEV Lumina have provided a substantial proof of concept for hybrids, there still remains a great deal of research to be done regarding...

NEW APPROACH TO SHREDDER DRIVES DRIVEN BY ELECTRIC MOTORS
In the 1970s the sugar industry began moving away from steam turbine driven shredders in favour of electric motor drives. Due to the high inertias of the shredders, long starting times and high starting torque requirements, the preferred electric motor drives have been slip ring motors with liquid starters. With the demand for higher Preparation Indices the shredder motor powers gradually increased. These ever-larger motors together with the power swings generally associated with shredders began to impact negatively on the sugar mill power houses and had the potential to cause loss of synchronism of the TAs and factory blackouts. The...
Comparison of Early-stage Design Methods for a Two-mode Hybrid Electric Vehicle
Abstract: A challenge in the early-stage design of hybrid propulsion system architectures is dealing with a vast design space consisting of distinct subsystems, such as engine, motor, transmission, and battery. In this paper, two design optimization methods for a two-mode hybrid vehicle are examined: The first integrates the subsystems into a single virtual system and solves an All-In-One (AIO) problem; the second maintains system decomposition and updates individual subsystem designs through iterative exchange of information. The analysis models are detailed high-fidelity simulations of engine and electric motor components combined with two-mode transmission and overall vehicle models. Results indicate that the...
