DOI: 10.1504/IJPELEC.2021.116649.

Abstract

The article presents a novel switched capacitor multilevel inverter topology. The prime features of the proposed inverter are the following: (a) It uses symmetrical DC power sources to generate different output voltage levels, (b) It has self-voltage balancing capability to balance the capacitor voltages, and (c) It can boost the input voltages to desired voltage levels at the load end. Extensive simulation and experimental studies of a 17-level inverter prove the merits and effectiveness of the proposed inverter. The inverter is applicable in renewable energy conversion systems such as photovoltaic (PV) systems to generate boosted multilevel output voltage from low voltage PV sources.

Abstract

The accurate estimation of heating load (HL) and cooling load (CL) of HVAC system in a building is very important. It has been studied that the building design parameters optimization approach alone can provide up to 62.1% electrical energy consumption reduction compared to buildings that are not designed for efficient energy usage. Recent research has demonstrated that a combination of existing HVAC technologies can offer effective solutions for energy conservation and thermal comfort. In this study various energy saving strategies for HVAC systems are investigated and different measures on further energy and cost savings in buildings are discussed.

Abstract

This paper had attempted to validate and compare the performance of two different non-linear robust controllers that can be applied for a double stage grid connected system. In double stage grid connected systems, the output of variable Photovoltaic source is fed to a dc-dc converter and then to an inverter which is further connected to the grid. The purpose of the controllers in the conversion phase is to control the switching of the dc-dc converter to provide a regulated dc output voltage in varying atmospheric or load conditions. The designs of the controllers are done using the dynamics of the converter itself and their robustness are verified using various results performed under Simulink Environment.

Abstract

This paper proposes the Black widow optimization algorithm, a nature-inspired technique for the optimal allocation of a distributed generation (DG) in a 69-bus distribution system. The main aim of this paper is to reduce overall real power loss in distribution systems. The effect of DG placement on total device reactive power loss, individual branch loadings, and voltage magnitude at each distribution bus is also investigated. The steady state power flow solutions are determined using load flow technique. In comparison to some of the other approaches listed in the study, the proposed BWOA achieves lower total active power loss.

Abstract

This paper describes about the 3-level and 5-level of NPC multilevel inverters utilized for DC to AC control transformation. DC source can be availed from conventional batteries, but PV solar cell may reduce dependency of the inverter for performing the basic transformation of signals. Here both 3-level and 5-level NPC inverters used for DC to AC power transformation are analyzed and compared based on all the parameters performed in MATLAB/SIMULINK platform. PV Cell is being used for replacement of conventional DC sources. THD analysis of current of inverters without PV cell and with PV cell have been found to be quite nominal and within the limits. The effect of the irradiance is studied and compared in case of both inverters.

Abstract

Over the last few decades, DC–DC converters have been subjected to greater developments and used in different applications. In this paper, a review of multi-stage-based boost converters has been undertaken. The study is focused mainly on an improved version of a simple boost converter by adding different stages to it.  It is known as positive output cascaded DC converters. These multi-stage boost converters enhance their voltage using super-lift technique. In this paper, the main and additional series configuration of these positive output cascaded converters is reviewed. A two-stage circuit is formed by the simple addition of an inductor, diode, capacitor and a DEC circuit.  When added, they enhance the voltage transfer gain effectively. The simulations are performed using MATLAB Simulink.

Abstract

In the present scenario, the development of the wind energy conversion system has increasingly gained attention worldwide to fulfil the global energy demand. The most challenging factor for power system planners and utility operators is the integration of the wind energy to the existing grid due to its intermittency, partial unpredictability, and variability nature in power output. This nature of wind can create problems such as uncertainty in generation, power quality issues, and voltage stability. To overcome all these challenges electrical storage technologies are considered as one of the acceptable and reliable solutions by controlling wind power plant output and providing ancillary services to the power system and therefore enabling increased penetration of wind power in the system. A sole storage unit is not suitable for wind farms due to its restricted capacity. The hybrid energy storage system (HESS) technology is more suitable to obtain the expected performance by integrating two or more storage units in various topologies. This chapter focuses on the different power converter topologies used in HESS, and interfacing units, power management, and control methods are briefly reviewed here. Finally, the potential of the HESS application in the wind energy system is listed out.

Journal Papers

1. Samal, S., Barik, P. K., and Hota, P. K. (2021), Harmonics Mitigation of a Solar PV-Fuel Cell Based Microgrid System Using a Shunt Active Power Filter, ECTI Transactions on Electrical Engineering, Electronics, and Communications, Vol.19, No.2,  pp. 127–135. https://doi.org/10.37936/ecti-eec.2021192.222556.

Abstract

A Microgrid (MG) includes distributed generation, loads, energy storage, and a control system capable of operating in grid-connected mode and/or island mode. Moreover, harmonic distortion in MG networks has significantly reduced Power Quality (PQ), affecting the stability of the system. Hence, in this paper, the impact of PQ issues in an adopted standalone MG system is investigated in the presence of shunt active power filter (SAPF). The SAPF is realized using a conventional synchronous reference frame technique for current generation with a pulse-width modulation voltage source inverter technique to generate pulses for the inverter along with a PI controller to regulate the DC-link capacitor voltage.

Abstract

The effect of Partial shading on PV array performance is analyzed through experimental results and MATLAB simulation. The effect of PS on PV characteristics is investigated in two conditions. In condition one, modules are not coupled with bypass diodes, and in condition two modules are equipped with bypass diodes. Two hybrid array configurations such as TCT with bridge link (TCT+BL) and TCT with honey-comb (TCT+HC) are proposed here. Performances of different array configurations are analyzed. It is observed that proposed array configurations outshine in performance by reducing the amount of ML and the number of local peaks in the P-V graph.

Abstract

The advantages of reactive power compensation can be insured by properly placing the STATCOM in a wind integrated power system. The modern power system is highly scattered and STATCOM is a shunt compensator, and it is used in large transmission lines for providing power quality compensation. Optimal placement of FACTS devices can be achieved by applying a stochastic algorithm which is a very diverse and continuous operation to the algorithm is going on. In this research work, multiple optimal solutions had been performed with a multi-objective problem to provide some flexibility for making a perfect decision about the placement of STATCOM.

Abstract

This paper represents a dynamic power management system for a PV and Wind based hybrid microgrid using battery energy storage system and supercapacitor. The normal load variations are supported by battery energy storage while sudden changes in load or transient loads are supported by using supercapacitor bank. The dc microgrid is simulated under variable load and solar insolation. It was observed that power management system is efficient to keep dc bus voltage constant in all situations. The sudden changes in DC bus voltage due to transient loads have been effectively nullified by using supercapacitor.

Abstract

Research in several new topologies of Multilevel inverter (MLI) has been carried out rapidly day by day. Recently several topologies have been introduced achieving higher levels with reduced device counts and DC sources. In this paper a new hybrid symmetric MLI is proposed. This topology has reduced number of controlled switches, DC sources and numbers of capacitors which are very less compared to all the conventional topologies existed before. It reduces cost, size, complexity and hence enhances inverter efficiency.

Abstract

In this paper, a boost converter with generalized structure of quadratic boosting cell (n = 3) is proposed. The proposed structure can produce high magnitude output DC voltage from a low magnitude DC voltage by adjusting the number of quadratic cells in the generalized quadratic cell structure. As compared to cascaded boost converter, the proposed structure sustains lower capacitor voltages at same voltage gain. This feature reduces the capacitor voltage ratings as well as cost of the capacitors utilized in proposed structure as compared to cascaded boost converter. Further on comparison with the existing topologies, the proposed structure generates high voltage gain at a low duty ratio

The idea originates from the findings made by our group during our studies under a SERB funded project that upon forced sedentary lifestyle serum fractalkine level is elevated in mice model. The studies proposed in the grant will form the foundation towards characterizing a biomarker of sedentary lifestyle that may not respond to active lifestyle mediated reversal of metabolic disorder. This prognostic marker can be used towards personalization of treatment for type 2 diabetic patients.
