Hybrid Energy Storage System for Electric Vehicle

Abstract Majority of the electric vehicles (EV) available commercially are powered by electrochemical batteries which have their own limitations related with cost, size, lifecycle and power density. A vehicle is supposed to perform satisfactorily under various dynamic conditions and on different road terrains requiring high torque and high motor current many times. The battery which […]

Performance of Grid-Connected Variable Speed WECS Using PMSG under MTPA Control with Common Synchronizing Circuit

Abstract This paper exclusively evaluates the performance of grid connected variable speed Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS) using Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) with Maximum Torque Per Ampere (MTPA) control. A new approach is employed using common synchronising circuit for generator and grid-side converters. The back-to-back converters used in WECS are realized using conventional two-level […]

Investigation of Properties of Fiber Reinforced Concrete Using Rubber Tyre Tube Wastage as Fibers

Abstract Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) is widely used as construction material. Fibers increase the structural integrity of concrete. Steel fibers, glass fibers, synthetic fibers and natural fibers are types of fibers used in FRC. Waste deposition of vehicles tyre after its useful life became critical issue to dispose off. In the present study preliminary investigation […]
