Significant Projects

1. Transformer less hybrid power filter based on a six-switch two-leg inverter for improved harmonic compensation performance

The main scope of the project is to reduce the harmonics which are produced due to voltage distortions, additional losses and malfunction of the electronic equipment.The system proposed by us is more enhanced because it is transformer less and number of switches used is less as compared to the existing systems which include nine switch inverters with transformer and dual converter configurations where APF's deal with higher harmonics. These topologies have been successful in harmonic compensation to some extent but due to transformer used and large number of switches the circuits are complex and costly. so comparing to existing topologies SSTL technology provides better results with lesser circuit complexity and cost.

1. 2. Power factor control of large doubly-fed reluctance wind generators

The vector control (VC) of anemerging brushless doubly-fed reluctance (BDFRG) technology for large-scale wind turbines. The BDFRG has been receiving promising attention due to its low operation and maintenance costs afforded by the use of partially-rated power electronics, and the high reliability of brushless construction, while offering performance competitive to its traditional slip-ring counterpart, the doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG). A robust VC control scheme has been developed for a custom-designed BDFRG fed from a conventional ‘back-to-back’ IGBT converter. The preliminary studies have evaluated the algorithm under the maximum power factor control (MPFC) conditions which allow the improved efficiency of the generator-converter set and the entire wind energy conversion systems (WECS).
