New architectures for space power systems
Electric power generation and conditioning have experienced revolutionary development over the past two decades. Furthermore, new materials such as high energy magnets and high temperature superconductors are either available ...
Magnetically inflatable SPS with energy storage capability
A new approach to superconductive magnetic energy storage (SMES) for solar power satellite (SPS) with inherent rigidity is introduced in this paper. The rigidity of this SMES originating from the electromagnetic forces ...
Capacitor coupled converter (C3) for high power DC conversion
The bang-bang controlled capacitor coupled converter (C<sup>3</sup>) is described in this paper. Due to the converter's inherent commutating property, the C<sup>3</sup> can accommodate thyristors as well as high-power gate ...
Torque Ripple Minimization of a Switched Reluctance Motor
This paper presents a simple technique to minimize torque ripple of a switched reluctance motor. The technique is based on the control of the sum of the square of the phase currents by using only two current sensors and ...
Avoiding Deadline Decay Under Transient Overloads
Deadline scheduling policies based on stochastic computation times perform well in average but fail in presence of transient overloads, causing already scheduled tasks to miss their deadline. This paper presents an approach ...
Joint Decision Making for Production and Marketing
The prosperity of a firm depends highly on the functional integration of its various departments, and in particular the cooperation between the production and the marketing departments appears to have a large impact on the ...
