Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Tapped-inductor variations of single-switch, single-diode, dc-to-dc converters are categorized based on a new unified sequential circuit topology and mathematical transformation approach, all seeded from a basic buck-boost converter and its transfer function. Classification focuses on identifying two different ac circuit coupled inductor arrangements of the basic buck-boost dc-to-dc converter. Subsequent dc circuit sequential manipulation yields all 11 known, documented, in theory, in simulation and practically, tapped-inductor dc-to-dc converter topologies. The procedure not only generates sequences of topologies, but also generates the voltage transfer functions without recourse to analysis of the circuit internal operating mechanisms. Consequently, two converter classes group the 11 known tapped-inductor topologies, which is at least one fewer topology classes than universally accepted. The methodology yields two new classes of three and ten coupled inductor converter topologies, all with new transfer functions. The new analysis approach is adaptable to the analysis of all single-switch, single-diode, (noncoupled inductor), dc-to-dc converters (single and two inductor topologies), formulated from the basic buck-boost converter.
