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

A high-capacity DC/DC converter with novel input-series-input-parallel output-series connection and with autonomous power sharing between modules is proposed. The proposed scheme is well suited for large-scale wind farm DC collection networks, as it avoids the charging current issues associated with its AC counterpart, and offers lower losses and reduced size and weight when a medium- or high-frequency transformer is used. Small-signal analysis is used to derive the control structures for the converter input and output stages. The proposed control scheme is validated through simulation and experimentation, including demonstration of autonomous power sharing between modules under several operating conditions.
