Funded Research Power Electronics and Power Systems Power electronics is the engineering study of converting electrical power from one form to another. A lot of energy is wasted during this power conversion process due to low power conversion efficiency.
It is estimated that the power wasted in desktop PCs sold in one year is equivalent to seventeen MW power plants! It is therefore very important to improve the efficiency of these power conversion systems. The findings could lead to early applications in the power industry, especially in power converters like medium voltage drives, solid state transformers and high voltage transmissions and circuit breakers.
Learn more Electric Machines and Drives The electric machine is an electromechanical energy conversion device that processes and delivers power to the load. The same electric machine can operate as a motor to convert electrical power to mechanical power or operate as a generator to convert mechanical power to electrical power.
The electric machine in conjunction with the power electronic converter and the associated controller makes the motor drive. The power electronic converter is made of solid state devices and handles the flow of bulk power from the source to the motor input terminals.
The advances in the power semiconductor technology over the past several decades enabled the development of compact, efficient and reliable DC and AC electric motor drives. The controller is made of microcontroller or digital signal processor and associated small signal electronics.
The function of the controller is to process the user commands and various sensor feedback signals to generate the gate switching signals for the power converter semiconductor switches following a motor control algorithm. The sensor signals include machine rotor position, phase currents, inverter bus voltage, and machine and inverter temperature outputs.
Fault protection and diagnostics is also part of the motor controller algorithm. Research in the area of electric machines and drives is focused on design optimization using 2D and 3D finite element analysis, and drives design at the systems level considering operating requirements and control opportunities.
The research is multifaceted seeking innovations in machine configurations, motor control concepts, parameter identifications, and noise and vibration analysis. Motor drives are designed to make the system more efficient, fault tolerant, smoother in operation, smaller and matched to the applications.
Modeling and design tools are developed to aid the machine design and drive development efforts. Particular research emphasis is on permanent magnet and reluctance type machines and drives. Electric Vehicle Systems Within a single century, personal transportation has progressed from the horse and buggy to nearly a billion private automobiles.
It is projected that the need for personal mobility will grow even faster, as large numbers of people are lifted out of poverty in developing countries and demand transportation.
Emissions from oil-burning automobiles clog our air and contribute to global warming. For all of these reasons, finding an alternative to oil for private transportation is imperative. Although several alternatives can propel a car, only one is readily available today: With the introduction of electric propulsion, a completely new drivetrain is introduced in the vehicle requiring multidisciplinary research into system components.
The Electric vehicle system is comprised of electric motor, power electronics converters, and energy storage devices such as batteries. In addition, the overall system must be optimized to maximize overall system efficiency. Finally, to reduce the overall transportation emissions, the vehicle energy storage device should be recharged at times when the grid power production is most efficient and non-polluting.
NCSU research on electric vehicle systems focuses on extending the vehicle range by developing more efficient subsystems and including storage systems with higher energy and power densities.
Another research topic focuses on development of fundamental and enabling technologies that will facilitate the electric power industry to actively manage and control large amount of plug-in vehicle charging.
More info is at: Electrical engineers develop circuits and schematics, but what is eventually delivered to a customer are electro-physical circuits concurrently designed and combined into a hardware system.
These hardware systems must meet metrics, such as power, weight, and size densities; government and industry standards; and reliability. Understandably, this research is broad-based and multidisciplinary with studies in electric, magnetic, thermal and mechanical components and circuits.
The NCSU research focus is on high-frequency, high-density topologies that use ultrafast-switching power semiconductors, and the materials and fabrication processes to create such topologies.
Applications are in new integrated power systems from chip to ship including land-based smart grid power systems; electric vehicle converters and drives; high performance power supplies for aerospace, telecom and DC distribution systems; and ultrafast fault protectors using the latest in SiC and GaN semiconductors.
Those interested in this area would find it advantageous to have had primary study in power electronics and physics with strong interests in heat transfer, materials or structural mechanics. Power Electronics Power electronics is the technology associated with the efficient conversion, control and conditioning of electric power by static means from its available input form into the desired electrical output form.
Power electronic converters can be found wherever there is a need to modify the electrical energy form i. Large scale power electronics are used to control hundreds of megawatt of power flow across our nation.
Research in this area includes power electronics applications to control large scale power transmission and distribution as well as the integration of distributed and renewable energy sources into the grid. NCSU also has a strong program on the emerging applications of wide bandgap semiconductor devices that offer high oeprating temperatures, higher efficiency and higher power density.
In addition, under-voltage or other fault conditions are monitored to prevent damage to the system. The soft-start feature reduces stress on power supply components and increase product reliability.r-bridal.com thesis topics in computer science is required for academic post graduate students.
