Influence of Scaling Effects on Hub Loads of a Horizontal Wind Turbine (IEEE Electrical Project)

Wind industry aims to generate more energy and reduce energy cost by increasing energy capacity of machines. As a result the loading scales up non-linearly. Nowadays there is a lack of studies of variation loads (specially fatigue ones) due to the up-scaling of wind turbine. This paper aims to generate a general fatigue load trends of several wind turbines, which […]

Virtual RC Damping of LCL-Filtered Voltage Source Converters With Extended Selective Harmonic Compensation (IEEE Electrical Project)

Active damping and harmonic compensation are two common challenges faced by LCL-filtered voltage source converters. To manage them holistically, this paper begins by proposing a virtual RC damper in parallel with the passive filter capacitor. The virtual damper is actively inserted by feeding back the passive capacitor current through a high-pass filter, which indirectly, furnishes two superior features. They are […]

Communicating Power Supplies: Bringing the Internet to the Ubiquitous Energy Gateways of Electronic Devices (IEEE Electrical Project)

Saving energy in buildings is often hampered by the lack of detailed information about what is using the energy, how much it is using, and how to automatically and remotely control devices. The problem is especially acute for the large number of small, energy-using devices that are present in both residential and commercial buildings. Most of these products use a […]

A Methodology of Modelling a Wave Power System via an Equivalent RLC Circuit (IEEE Electrical Project)

The equivalent circuit method can be an effective modelling technique for system studies of point absorbing wave energy converters (WECs). For the continuously evolving design and study of WEC systems, an instruction on how to draw the corresponding equivalent RLC circuit model is needed. It is not only vital to make sure the model is correct, but to allow the […]
