An Indigenously Developed Gate Driver Circuit for Three-Phase Smart Inverter Operated with Internet of Things

Abstract In this paper, an attempt is made to introduce an indigenously made three-phase inverter feeding power to the three-phase induction motor. The developed three-phase inverter could be operated and controlled either manually using speed settings or by remotely using the Internet of Things (IoT). The proposed drive consists of three-phase inverter made of IGBTs […]

Comparison of Dynamic Performance of Solar PV fed BLDC Motor Drive with P&O and I.C. – MPPT Algorithm

Abstract In this paper, the dynamic performance of BLDC motor fed with SPV array using MPPT algorithm such as Perturb & Observe and Incremental Conductance methods are analysed. The PV array is subjected to varying conditions of temperature and irradiance during its working. The output of SPV array is fed to BLDC motor through DC-DC […]

Advances in Development of MOEMS Devices: A Review

Abstract Micro-Opto-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MOEMS) are the combination of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) merged with Micro-optics. The precision workings of MEMS, its optical functionality, and fabrication techniques make possible a broad variety of movable and tunable mirrors, filters, and other optical structures. Microoptics has new features that are widely used in many applications than the classical optics. […]

Investigating Optimal Location of DSSC to Minimize Reactive Power Generation

Abstract Power flow control using Distributed-FACTS provides a reliable substitute to power flow control using lumped FACTS controllers which employs high rated power electronics devices. Lumped FACTS controllers becomes very costly and reliability is also less. DSSC advantage is that it provides power flow control in cost effective and more reliable way. Distributed Static Series […]

Comparative Simulative Study of Power Factor Improvement by Employing Extinction Angle Control in AC-AC Voltage Converter
