Country :: India
Authors :: AmolGodase || Ganesh Wakte
Page No. :: 01-07
This paper deals with the Artificial Neural Network based design and performance analysis of a three-phase solar photovoltaic integrated unified power quality conditioner (PV-UPQC).The PV-UPQC consists of a shunt and series-connected voltage compensators connected back-to-back with common dc-link. The shunt compensator are performs the dual function of extracting power from PV array apart from compensating for load current harmonics. An improved synchronous arrangement management supported moving average filter is employed for extraction of load active current part for improved performance of the PV-UPQC. The series compensator compensates for the grid aspect power quality issues like grid voltage sags/swells. The compensator injects voltage in-phase/out of section with purpose of common coupling (PCC) voltage throughout sag and swells conditions.

This article is about cable fault distance locator by using microcontroller. The main of this project is to detect the distance of underground cable fault in kilometers. This project uses the simple concept of ohm's law. Faults like short circuits occur in the cable, voltage drop varies depending on the length of fault in the cable and hence the current varies. The resistors are used to represent the cable and the dc voltage is given at one end and the fault will detects by the change in voltage using analog to digital converter. Then the microcontroller makes the necessary calculations to display the fault location distance on the LCD display.

Keywords: Underground cable, fault location in distance, detection of fault, different location methods, microcontroller.

Authors :: Prof. Pragati.G. Rathi || Prof. Dhiraj. W. Ghatole
Page No. :: 22-27

Currently, a generation of electric power from alternative sources of energy, especially from ambient vibrations, is becoming a very hot topic. Devices converting mechanical energy into an electrical one are called energy harvesters and are often based on the piezoelectric phenomenon. For the optimal adjustment of such an energy converter in the given application, it is necessary to have its computational model, which is able to describe all key aspects of its operation. Thus, this work focuses on the development of such a complex computational tool, which is able to globally describe the electromechanical response of the studied piezoelectric harvester operating in the form of a cantilever multilayer ceramic beam with piezoelectric layers. Such a multilayer structure is subjected to a kinematic excitation during its operation and also contains thermal residual stresses coming from the manufacturing process........

In other countries like India with a lot of vehicles, the consumption of fuel from fuel station is large most of the times consumers are not satisfied with quantity or quality of fuel, because the consumer gets less quantity and are cheated. Smart fuel flow meter will calibrate the amount of fuel flowing into fuel tank of vehicles with help of fuel flow sensor. The amount of fuel is measured very accurately and can be viewed in display provided to the system. Flow meters are device that measure the amount of liquid, gas, vapors that passes through them. Smart fuel flow meter will be portable or fixed type. It is battery operated device and is based on microcontroller. In other way this system has Dynamo power generation this system will work on self power generation by vehicle.

Power quality is one of the major concerns in the power system. The power quality problem occurred due to a non-linear load in the distribution network and its severe impact on sensitive loads. To overcome this problem, the new series, parallel FACTS device use. The Interline Power Flow Controller (IPFC) is a VSC based Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) controller for series compensation with the unique capability of power flow management among the multiple transmission lines in the transmission system. Due to disturbance, the electromechanical oscillations will present in the transmission system and these oscillations should damp out using IPFC. The performance of the considered IEEE 14 bus system is analyzed in terms of oscillations using IPFC.

Country :: India
Authors :: Vaishanvi Burde
Page No. :: 63-69

Due to the more vigorous regulations on carbon gas emissions and fuel economy, Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV) are becoming more popular in the automobile industry. This project presents a neural network based Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) controller for 1.26 kW Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC), supplying electric vehicle power train through a high voltage-gain DC-DC boost converter. The proposed neural network MPPT controller uses Radial Basis Function Network (RBFN) algorithm for tracking the Maximum Power Point (MPP) of the PEMFC. High switching frequency and high voltage gain DC-DC converters are essential for the propulsion of FCEV. In order to attain high voltage gain, a three-phase high voltage gain Interleaved Boost Converter (IBC) is also designed for FCEV system. The interleaving technique reduces the input current ripple and voltage stress on the power semiconductor devices. The performance analysis of the FCEV system with RBFN based MPPT controller is compared with the Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) in MATLAB/Simulink platform.
