    ABSTRACT: In this column, we provide a method and device for measuring the distance of a targeted object (pixels in this case) based on a number of reflected light signals with low cost and high resolution. The distance is obtained by the phase difference between the transmitted and received signals. Consequently, the technology provides the high-resolution three-dimensional (3-D) image beyond the two-dimensional (2-D) image. This invention can be used in many industrial products, e.g., an examination device for sorting out defective goods. We expect that this technology will contribute to the development of the next generation of digital cameras in the near future.

    ABSTRACT: This article presents the basic principles of operation for model predictive control (MPC), a control methodology that opens a new world of opportunities. MPC is a powerful technique that can fulfill the increased performance and higher efficiency demands of power converters today. The main features of this technique are presented as well as the MPC strategy and basic elements. The two main MPC methods for power converters [continuous-control-set MPC (CCS-MPC) and finite-control-set MPC (FCS-MPC)] are described, and their application to a voltage-source inverter (VSI) is shown to illustrate their capabilities. This article tries to bridge the gap between the powerful but sometimes abstract techniques developed by researchers in the control community and the empirical approach of power electronics practitioners.

    ABSTRACT: This book is very well-written and provides in-depth coverage of the analysis, modeling, testing, and control of DFIM-based wind power systems. Topics such as offline estimation of DFIM model parameters are uniquely treated, while the DFIM control methods are thoroughly covered, including predictive control at constant switching frequency. The book can be considered a reference on DFIM-based wind energy electrical generators. The text introduces the wind energy electrical generation system, where the DFIM is used as an adjustable-speed electrical generator. Practical and commercial illustrative information is given. The modeling of the DFIG and power electronic converter operation is then presented, including the power electronics converters with appropriate control and block diagrams for the offline model parameter estimation. The DFIM analysis under voltage dips, including the solutions for this issue, is also avidly explained. Some particular aspects as the starting process and standalone operations, are described. As a final point, new trends for wind power energy innovation are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: For several decades, silicon (Si) has been the primary semiconductor choice for power electronic devices. During this time, the development and fabrication of Si devices has been optimized, which, in combination with the large abundance of material, has resulted in high manufacturing capability and extremely low costs. However, Si is approaching its limits in power conversion [1], [2]; improved efficiency, reduced size, and lower overall system cost can now be achieved by replacing Si devices with wide-bandgap (WBG) semiconductors [1]?[3].

    ABSTRACT: There are many good reasons to celebrate light besides the scientific achievements triggered by al-Haytham?s work 1,000 years ago, which was described in the ?Historical? column in the last issue of IEEE Industrial Electronics Magazine [1]. Long before Maxwell discovered the secret nature of light, mankind had learned how to manage it to improve life. Far back in the Stone Age, 1.5?0.5 million years ago, ancient progenitors of modern man were able to conserve fire and use it in many ways, including lighting the dark of the night, promoting socialization among the individuals gathered around the fire. Much later, the light of oil lamps and candles illuminated the dwellings and palaces of ancient and classical civilizations, allowing a much richer social life after dusk [2].

    ABSTRACT: This article describes the next step in the development of the home appliance motor drive?the elimination of the electrolytic dc-link capacitor and the substitution of one with a small film. A small film capacitor increases total device reliability and improves the spectrum of the input current so the power factor corrector (PFC) used to satisfy existing standards on harmonic current emission can be omitted, which decreases the size and cost of the appliances. This article also proposes simple modifications to the standard vector control scheme, making operation with pulsating dc-link voltage possible.

    ABSTRACT: ??????Public lighting in urban environments accounts for about 50% of the electricity consumption in cities, according to the Digital Agenda for Europe??€™s report ??€œLighting the Cities.??€ Innovative measures are required to reduce the carbon footprint and cost of lighting in urban environments. A promising solution is traffic- adaptive control of light-emitting diode (LED)-based streetlights, which adjust the level of luminance intensity based on traffic volume. This solution yields significant energy savings without compromising traffic safety.

    ABSTRACT: This book presents a new problem-solving learning approach to power quality and modern mitigation techniques based on the authors??? experience. Power quality issues have become a popular topic recently because of the rapid increase in power electronic systems in households, industry, and commercial energy systems. The fast growth of renewable energy and distributed generation causes additional power quality problems. On the other hand, low power quality leads to increased loss and poor utilization of power distribution grids and malfunctions of sensitive devices that can lead to their exclusion. This book discusses both classification and analysis of all problems related to power quality. Power Quality: Problems and Mitigation Techniques also presents a systematic methodology for power quality and techniques to reduce and mitigate problems through practical case studies.

    ABSTRACT: drivers today are based more on integrated circuits (ICs). A steady replacement of discrete drivers with their IC counterparts has led to higher reliability, lower costs, and increased functionality. Modern dc?dc LED drivers are therefore typically a mixture of several discrete externals and a key IC. The trend toward even full integration is revealed by a recently presented capacitor-free single-inductor, multiple-output (SIMO) dc?dc LED driver [3]. This article reports on the integration challenges of these fully integrated devices and discusses the necessary high-voltage, double-diffused metal-oxide semiconductor (DMOS) field-effect transistors compared to the standard laterally DMOSs (LDMOSs) to preserve isolated LED strings without passive external components at dc supply voltages of up to 60 V.

    ABSTRACT: This article presents an overview of technologies for solid-state lighting (SSL). In recent years, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have developed characteristics desirable for lighting applications. The success of these light sources for general lighting depends on the system design, which comprises an understanding of electrical and photometrical characteristics under the temperature effect on device performance. This review focuses on the main theoretical models for the characterization of SSL devices, regarding the electrical and thermal aspects to reach the desired photometrical characteristic for a lighting system. An approach about inorganic LEDs and organic LEDs (OLEDs) will be presented along with the application of these devices in SSL systems.

    ABSTRACT: This article presents a new approach for driving multicolor red?green?blue?white ( RGBW) high-current light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for general lighting. The physical advantages in LED applications can be improved by elementary changes in the topology. The presented prototype demonstrator has superior advantages in complexity, form factor, and cost compared to state-of-the-art multicolor LED drivers. A single inductor in parallel to the LED strings is used to supply multiple different LED strings without additional output capacitors. For energy efficiency, the well-known continuous and discontinuous conduction modes (CCM and DCM) are implemented. A novel all-digital current control strategy is used so that no voltage measurements have to be performed, even for light load detection or idle time control in DCM. The irrelevance of any voltage control and the negligence of storage capacitors dramatically reduce the system?s form factor and increase the LED driver reliability. Dimming has been applied with hybrid amplitude and pulsewidth modulation (AM-PWM) control. Thus, color mixing is done by a continuous time integral of the discrete LED light spectra. A discrete prototype demonstrator has been implemented, and further constraints to develop a full integrated circuit (IC) are being evaluated. The discrete demonstrator runs at 12-V dc input voltage with a maximum current of 200 mA to run high-current RGBW LED strings. The peak efficiency of 77.5% is limited by the choice of the applied N-type metal-oxide-semiconductor (NMOS) transistors, which are special and unique on the market for this topology. The high switching frequency of above 1 MHz during CCM ensures a flicker-free color resolution of above 10 b.
