Flyback Power Converter

.... FLYBACK POWER CONVERTER Shubham Agarwal(11BEC082) Electronics and Communication Department Institute of Technology Nirma University, Ahmedabad Abstract The flyback converter is used in both AC/DC and DC/DC conversion with galvanic isolation between the input and any outputs. More precisely, the flyback converter is a boost converter with the inductor split to form a transformer, so that the voltage ratios are multiplied with an additional advantage of isolation. When driving for example a plasma lamp or a voltage multiplier the rectifying diode of the boost converter is left out and the device is called a flyback transformer. lesson is limited to the study of fly-back circuit of single switch topology. II. Basic Topology of Fly-Back Converter I. Introduction Fly-back converter is the most commonly used SMPS circuit for low output power applications where the output voltage needs to be isolated from the input main supply. The output power of fly-back type SMPS circuits may vary from few watts to less than 100 watts. The overall circuit topology of this converter is considerably simpler than other SMPS circuits. Input to the circuit is generally unregulated dc voltage obtained by rectifying the utility ac voltage followed by a simple capacitor filter. The circuit can offer single or multiple isolated output voltages and can operate over wide range of input voltage variation. In respect of energy-efficiency, flyback power supplies are inferior to many......

...Oral Roberts University SUPERIORITY AND BLURRED LINES: An observation of the themes communicated in major DC Comics storylines Joshua Gallego Philosophy of Science HONR 102 Dr. Ken Weed/Dr. Samuel Thorpe March 13, 2014 Introduction Superheroes are part of an American upbringing. Stories of persons with capabilities that far exceed that of the human race are popular and appealing to our youth and even to many adults. Entertainment in general pervades the American culture, and this specific type of entertainment dealing with superheroes is of considerable size and has been a constant for several decades. Images of Superman, Captain America and many others are immediately recognized when seen. The entertainment value of these fictitious tales has caused the companies that own them to expand into creating computer games and producing movies, which has made them even more visible. It is considered weird if a person does not even know the basic story of these costumed figures. The adventures, stories, and even lives of these fictions have become a part of the American Psyche. Throughout the course of this semester, discussion in the Philosophy of Science class has led to topics such as the paradigms and presuppositions that we approach our world from and the metaphors that we use to communicate ideas and concepts. Such discussion has led to the asking of questions concerning things that we encounter in everyday circumstances. Questions like “What are the......

...Physics 114 AC Circuits. Oscilloscope Alvaro Alvarez Partner: Shaine Powers Group 1 Ta: Salman 4/1/14 Abstract: In the experiment AC Circuits. Oscilloscope, the main objective was to use a signal generator (SG) to create a sine wae and using an oscilloscope we had to bserve the various components of a sine waves and there relationships; the component RMS, amplitude, period and frequency. Another objective was to use the RLC circuit to determine the resonant frequency. In order to complete these ojectives the circuit was first set up as in figure 1 and RMS, period, frequency and amplitude were calculated and measured. The experimental amplitude was 0.875Vac, the frequency was 1001Hz, and the period was one second. The difference beween the theoretical frequcy from the signal generator was compared to the experimental frequency giving a 0.1% error. For the second part of the lab the RLC circuit was set up (figure 2) and from there the resonant frequency was found for this was done three times (table 1). After this the voltage drop was measured in the range of 800-300Hz; the different frequencies withc corresponding average power that dissipated in the resistor was inputted into GA (table 2,). From there the power vs frequency graph was plotted. and finally the theoretical angular frequency 1.0846 x 104rad/sec was compared to the experimentally found frequency of 1.0820 x 104rad/sec, giving a 0.24% error.

Main Features of a Dc Motor

...Describe the main features of a DC electric motor and the role of each feature - Electrical motors can be classified as either: o DC (direct current) motors: or o AC (alternating current) motors - The commutator DC motor consists of: o An Armature (the rotor) o A magnetic field produced by permanent magnets or by electromagnets. It is equivalent to the stator o A commutator to reverse the direction of the current o Connecting brushes to take the current to and from the armature - The armature is made up of a large number of coils (or turns) wrapped around an iron core that is free to rotate about a horizontal axis (hence the rotor). These coils are arranged at angles to each other. (To minimize the air gap between the armatures conductors and the stator, the conductors are often imbedded in slots cut longitudinally into the metal core. - In its simplest form the field structure (stator) is made with permanent magnets (called field magnets), but also can be made from electromagnets (called field coils). The stator is approximately circular as this improves the smoothness of the torque. - In its simplest form the split ring commutator consists of a copper cylinder divided in two electrically separated halves. Each half is connected to one side of the armature. - Brushes are graphite pieces in their simplest form, which make contact with the commutator as t rotates. Springs ensure that the brushes are held firmly against the commutator. - The coil can be......

Dc Water

...not support the EPA allowing DC Water to use Green Infrastructure (GI) to help meet its responsibilities for water quality improvements. Although implementing GI has tremendous environmental, social and economic benefits, DC Water’s proposal to use GI doesn’t adequately render GI as a viable option for the following reasons. The first reason the implementation of GI is unacceptable is because DC Water has failed to show that GI works. The Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) consent decree was signed in 2005. In 2014, DC Water proposed to amend LTCP to include green infrastructure. In this nine year period, DC water failed to demonstrate and provide site specific performance information on the Potomac and Rock Creek illustrating that GI can achieve equal or greater reductions of combined sewer overflows (“CSOs”) compared to building tunnels. Therefore utilizing $30 million dollars of the rate‐payers money to reduce the size of the Potomac’s tunnel and replace it with GI is a poor choice since DC Water has not proved its proposed GI would fulfil the same requirement as a large tunnel would. DC Water’s General Manager, George Hawkins’ power point presentation indicates DC Water has invested 10 million in GI projects such as tree plantings, rain gardens, green roofs, bioretention, etc., but the presentation lacks providing any significant data or measuring tool on how successful the projects have been while implementing GI. The second reason DC water should not use GI,......

Dc Sniper

...suburbs. Malvo testified that Muhammad, driven by hatred of America because of its “slavery, hypocrisy and foreign policy” and his belief that “the white man is the devil”, planned to kill six whites a day for 30 days. Malvo alleged that Muhammad had said: “We are going to go to the Washington DC area and we are going to terrorise these people.” They then intended to move to Baltimore for stage two of their campaign, to shoot a policeman and then blow up explosives at his funeral. More explosives would target the ambulances that would then rush to the funeral. Another plan to kill three busloads of school children was thwarted because the pair were arrested when Malvo fell asleep while keeping watch at a Maryland petrol station. Muhammad’s ultimate plan, Malvo testified, was to indoctrinate 140 young homeless men at a Canada compound who would “shut things down” in cities across America. Conclusion October 22, 2002 was a tragic day that several innocent people lost their lives to two serial killers. Still today the killings haunt many families and the people that lost their lives are honored for their bravery for trying to save other people's lives that were involved in the killings. The DC sniper holds a very prolific spot in the mind of many northern Virginians since unprovoked many lost there lives without provoking these cold-blooded killer. These killers will always hold a spot in the back of the mind of many Virginian’s since without warning so many died short......

H-Bridge Converters and Inverters

...EEET2274 Power Electronics and EMC Laboratory 5: H-Bridge Converters and Inverters Introduction Pulse Width Modulation or PWM technology is used in Inverters to give a steady output voltage of 230 or 110 V AC irrespective of the load. The Inverters based on the PWM technology are more superior to the conventional inverters. The use of MOSFETs in the output stage and the PWM technology makes these inverters ideal for all types of loads. In addition to the pulse width modulation, the PWM Inverters have additional circuits for protection and voltage control. The quality of the output wave form (230 / 110 volt AC) from the inverter determines its efficiency. The quality of the inverter output wave form is expressed using Fourier analysis data to calculate the Total Harmonic Distortion (THD). THD is the square root of the sum of the squares of the harmonic voltage divided by the fundamental voltage. THD = √ V2 2 + V3 2 + V4 2…………. Vn 2 / V1 Based on the output waveforms, there are three types of Inverters. These are Sine wave, Modified Sine wave or Quasi sine wave and Square wave inverters. Sine wave Alternating current has continuously varying voltage, which swings from positive to negative. This has an advantage in power transmission over long distance. Power from the Grid is carefully regulated to get a pure sine wave and also the sine wave radiate the least amount of radio power during long distance transmission. But it is expensive to generate sine wave in an......

Catalytic Converter

...INTRODUCTION There are millions of cars on the road that are potential sources of air pollution. In a major effort to reduce vehicle emissions, carmakers have developed an interesting device called a catalytic converter, which treats the exhaust before it leaves the car and removes a lot of the pollution.  In order to reduce emissions, modern cars have been designed to carefully control the amount of fuel they burn. The goal is to keep the air-to-fuel ratio very close to the "stoichiometric" point, which is the calculated ideal ratio of air to fuel. Theoretically, at this ratio, all of the fuel will be burned using all of the oxygen in the air. [For petrol, the stoichiometric ratio is about 14.7 to 1, meaning that for each pound of fuel, 14.7 pounds of air will be burned. The fuel mixture actually varies from the ideal ratio quite a bit during driving. Sometimes the mixture can be "lean" (an air-to-fuel ratio higher than 14.7); and other times the mixture can be "rich" (an air-to-fuel ratio lower than 14.7).]  Most modern cars are equipped with three-way catalytic converters. "Three-way" refers to the three regulated emissions it helps to reduce - carbon monoxide, unburnt hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxide molecules. The converter uses two different types of catalysts, a reduction catalyst and an oxidization catalyst. Both types consist of a ceramic structure coated with a metal catalyst, usually platinum, rhodium and/or palladium. The idea is to create a......

...Asymmetrical Half Bridge Double Input DC/DC Converter Adopting More Than One Renewable Energy Sources Nishi N S P G student, Dept. of Electrical and electronics Engineering Vidya Academy of Science and Technology Thalakkottukara, Thrissur, Kerala, India nishi.ns@gmail.com Jasna S B Associate Professor, Dept. of Electrical and electronics Engineering Vidya Academy of Science and Technology Thalakkottukara, Thrissur, Kerala, India jasna.s.b@vidyaacademy.ac.in Abstract— This paper proposes an asymmetrical double input converter for low power applications. Double Input Converters (DICs) are special case of Multiple Input Converters where available MICs usually have complex configuration and numerous transformer windings. The proposed converters have advantages of simple architecture, soft-switching realization, and high conversion efficiency compared with available MICs. In this paper, the operating principle of DIC composed of two buck PVSC is analyzed. The open loop and closed loop simulation of the proposed converter is carried out and verified. Multi input converters play a key role in such hybridized systems, where it is required to have more than one power source. A multiple input converter is a circuit that accommodates input of more than one energy sources which are of the pulsating voltage source cells (PVSC),and provides at least one output. Such technologies can find application in residential, aerospace, automotive, portable electronics and any other application......

Homeless in Dc

...Introduction Washington D.C. is a beautiful district with great architeture and beautiful buildings. Its population was estimated to be about 672,000 residents in 2015. From the 672,000 residents, DC region has 11,623 literally homeless people, about 1.72% of all residents. In percentage, it can be considered as a low number but this little percentage is not really appreciated by the thousands of families who don’t have where to live or even don’t know if they will have what to eat. A federal estimate released this year, 2016, points that homeless children and their parents passed the number of homeless single adults. It means that most homeless people are families. Women, men and children without a place to call home. D.C. laws guarantee a right to a shelter to the homeless but still it’s possible to see many homeless in the streets. The Washington Council published a research about homeless people in 2015 where it found 3,417 homeless children (29% of all homeless). This indicates that a big amount of children are growing up in a different atmosphere. They don’t have a place to call home, they don’t have relatives, friends or neighborhood schools. Maybe some of them don’t even go to school. Those children face problems like lack of food, they probably don’t have a good nutrition, they have big chances to have more health problems, are easily exposed to violence, estress and no safety environment. These children have high chances to become criminals, as a research...

...out to quell the animosity which is one of the major causes of terrorism in the world. This does not mean in any way that he condones terrorism. Conclusion In a world very vulnerable to terrorism, the United States has a military force second to none and on normal circumstances, should not worry but there is a big cause for worrying in that the animosity of many nations against America is doubling. This is not something you can conquer with military power. Dialogue and compromise is the way to go for America to ever realize the dream of living in a terrorism free world. As it has been recently happening in the nation, there are tendencies of domestic terrorism hence undermining the gains that have been made in the fight. The case of the DC snipers is just an example that should have turn off the alarms and help America find a way of dealing with the in-house issues first.
