Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Abstract

The steady-state and dynamic performances of a new high-power variable speed wind-energy conversion system (WECS) that uses a six-phase permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) with twelve-pulse back-to-back pulse width modulated current source converters is assessed. The proposed WECS inherently has all the features of existing systems based on voltage source converters, such as voltage control and fault ride-through capability, but with increased reliability and improved ac side waveform quality, benefiting from the three-winding phase shifting transformer for further attenuation of the low-order harmonics. PSCAD/EMTDC simulation is used to assess the steady-state and dynamic behaviours of the proposed system under different operating conditions. Experimental results, obtained using a prototype grid side dual current source inverter (CSI), are presented to validate the proposed technique.
