  1. 1. Highly-Efficient Energy Harvesting Interfaces for Implantable Biosensors

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Janko Katic; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy harvesting interface; thermoelectric generator; glucose biofuel cell; power management; dc-dc converter; boost converter; zero-current switching; zero-voltage switching; implantable biosensor; Energiskördsgränssnitt; termoelektrisk generator; glukosbiobränslecell; energihantering; DC-DC-omvandlare; boost-omvandlare; inplanterbar biosensor; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : Energy harvesting is identified as an alternative solution for powering implantable biosensors. It can potentially enable the development of self-powered implants if the harvested energy is properly handled. This development implies that batteries, which impose many limitations, are replaced by miniature harvesting devices. READ MORE

  2. 2. A Generator Perspective on Vertical Axis Wind Turbines

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Bülow; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VAWT; PM generator; Wind power; Stator core loss;

    Abstract : The wind energy conversion system considered in this thesis is based on a vertical axis wind turbine with a cable wound direct drive PM generator. Diode rectifiers are used to connect several such units to a single DC-bus and a single inverter controls the power flow from the DC-bus to a utility grid. READ MORE

  3. 3. Multilevel Power Converters with Smart Control for Wave Energy Conversion

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Deepak Elamalayil Soman; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Multilevel power converter; FPGA control; Wave Energy; Three-level boost converter; Three-level buck-boost converter; Variable-renewable-energy; Three-level neutral point clamped inverter; Linear generator; DC-link; AC2AC direct converter; Modular multilevel converter; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : The main focus of this thesis is on the power electronic converter system challenges associated with the grid integration of variable-renewable-energy (VRE) sources like wave, marine current, tidal, wind, solar etc. Wave energy conversion with grid integration is used as the key reference, considering its high energy potential to support the future clean energy requirements and due the availability of a test facility at Uppsala University.

  5. 5. AFPM Motor/Generator Flywheel for Electric Power Stabilization

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper

    Author : Juan de Santiago Ochoa; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The study of a motor/generator for flywheel energy storage, meant to smooth the power transients in a vehicular power train, is expounded in this licentiate thesis. The proposed motor/generator has two sets of windings in the stator, rated at different power and voltage levels, and a significant moment of inertia to store energy in the form of rotational kinetic energy.
