    ABSTRACT: The evolution of power electronics and its control has been mainly driven by industry applications and influenced by the development achieved in several technologies, such as power semiconductors, converter topologies, automatic control, and analog and digital electronics. Digital signal processors (DSPs), in particular, have experienced an exponential development in processing power, which until now has not been fully exploited for control purposes in power converters and drive applications. Presently, the control system technology finds itself in a paradigm-changing tipping point, in which more demanding control goals, system flexibility, and functionalities required by emerging applications are driving the control system technology development, in addition to stabilization and robustness, which was the main focus in the past. This article walks briefly through the history of the mainstream power converter control scene, with an emphasis on the more recent introduction of predictive control, and gives a glimpse on the challenges and possibilities ahead. Special attention is given to finite control set (FCS)-model predictive control (MPC), because of its simplicity, flexibility, inherent adaptation to power electronic circuits and their discrete nature, both in the finite amount of switching states and the digital implementation with microprocessors.

    ABSTRACT: At the turn of the 20th century, when electric light superseded chemically fueled lamps [1], new uses of light began to emerge. They regarded information processing and transmission rather than power and within a few decades resulted in the technological domain of photonics. These applications consisted of photocells, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), lasers, fiber optics, and holography. In that same span of years, progressing from the achievements of Maxell and Hertz [2], science advanced into new theories on light. After Max Planck?s (1858?1947) breakthrough of energy quanta of 1900, Albert Einstein (1879?1955) lived his annus mirabilis in 1905, when he published four papers in Annalen der Physik, each a milestone in theoretical physics. The first one, ??ber einen die Erzeugung und Verwandlung des Lichtes betreffenden heuristischen Gesichtspunkt? (?On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light? [3]) justified Planck?s result by means of the photoelectric effect, which deems light to consist of discrete quantized packets of energy. The theory was so innovative that it was accepted only after Robert Millikan?s (1868?1953) experimental confirmation in 1914. Ultimately both Einstein and Millikan won the Nobel Prize in physics, in 1921 and 1923, respectively, for these achievements. Still, Heinich Hertz had already observed the photoelectric effect in 1887, but he did not continue researching the subject and moved on to electromagnetic waves. The name ?photon? for the light quantum was accepted after the American physicist Arthur Compton (1892?1962, the 1927 Nobel Laureate in physics) used it in 1928. A major step ahead in the theoretical physics of light came in 1948, when Sin-Itiro Tomonaga (1906?1979), Julian S. Schwinger (1918?1994), and Richard P. Feynman (1918?1988) presented their independent but consistent models of quantum electrodynamics, aimed at describing the electromagnetic interactions between electrons and photons (i.e., b- tween matter and light) in quantum form. For these works, they shared the 1965 Nobel Prize in physics [4].

    ABSTRACT: Access to emergency numbers such as 911 or 112 is generally universally available to cell phone users. Nevertheless, emergencies may occur in areas without cell phone coverage, for example, in remote areas frequented by climbers or hikers. In this article, we describe the design, development, and evaluation of a global system for mobile communications (GSM) base station that can be placed in a vehicle (car, plane, helicopter, etc.) to locate a lost person with an active GSM phone. The system includes the resources to provide a good estimation of the location of the phone, allowing the rescue team to significantly narrow its search and to establish communication with the person where possible, as the system also provides GSM coverage.

    ABSTRACT: This book contains the fundamental subjects of the interdisciplinary field of power electronics, which draws knowledge from circuit and control theory, signal processing, electronics, power semiconductor devices, magnetics, power network analysis, renewable energy, and power quality. The book begins with basic concepts, semiconductor power devices, structures, operation and characteristics, and silicon carbide devices and continues with electromagnetic components. It includes the main switching converters: line-commutated converters, direct-current to directcurrent converters, voltage source and current source inverters, resonant converters, and the new multilevel, modular, multicell converters. A preface, two appendixes and indexes are also included. The book is oriented to modern students and is concise while suggesting significant team work. It is valuable to every undergraduate or graduate student, practicing engineer or technician, industry professionals, researchers, and academics willing to study the broad field of power electronics. It offers a solid background on the underlying theory, while making an overview about the latest trends in converters and control methods of the power electronics industry. The book is also fundamental for power electronics professors and instructors, serving as a textbook for undergraduate classes and as a model for more advanced courses.

    ABSTRACT: Power conversion systems are dependent on the performance and reliability of static converters. However, they are subject to frequent functional and environmental strains, which can induce failures. The anticipation of these failures is difficult but important so the operation of a system can be halted before a breakdown occurs. In the case of photovoltaic (PV) power plants, the system can be simplified into two distinct blocks: the solar panels/modules and the power inverter. A breakdown in either of these blocks can cause significant downtime in the system. Nevertheless, multiple solar module failures can often be tolerated and not lead to a total breakdown of the entire array, whereas a single component failure in the inverter can lead to a collapse of the entire system. Furthermore, solar panel/module manufacturers often offer warranties of up to 20 years, while warranties for inverters rarely reach the ten-year mark [1]. As such, the overall cost of a PV inverter can increase by a factor of two or three if it undergoes one or two failures during the life of the system. Although the market competition between PV inverter manufacturers has traditionally focused on the efficiency of their product, a failure that induces a downtime of just a few days can easily negate the yield attained through a 1% efficiency improvement. Oversizing the inverter or introducing redundancy into the inverter system is one option to improve reliability; however, often, this is not economical.

    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: 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.
