  • 3. 1KVA Standalone Photovoltaic System For Rural Areas

              The rural areas of Pakistan need electricity for home usage.  We are designing the standalone system of 1KVAwhose efficiency will be more than 85percent. This design include a 30-70volts variableDCinput from 1kilowatts panels which will be the output of buck converter/charge controller that will step down the dc voltage upto 14.5 volts to charge the battery of 12Vand also become the input of boost converter.Boost converter step-up the dc input from 14.5Vto 350Vthat will be the input of an Inverter which will convert this DCinput to 220V AC.

               Instead of using the transformer, the battery voltage is step up using DC Converter to DC Link voltage results in high efficiency of the system.We have designed the charge controller according to the requirementsand H- Bridge inverter is also design with low pass filter. The system will provide power to the domestic user, who are still not connected to the national Grid.

  • 6. Design And Analysis Of Novel Three Phase Hybrid Excited Linear Flux Switching Machine For Advanced Electric Power Train

    Demands toward locomotives have been increased in the past decades which leads to global CO2 emissions. To eliminate the emissions, the most feasiblesolution at present is locomotives driven by battery-based electric motor. Electric train is an efficient, cheap, alternate green solution for light and heavy load(freight) transportations, and can be utilized for in-city transport as well as over long distances. Electric motor designed for electric train can be rotary orlinear. Rotary electric motor is conventionally used for trains (DC series traction motor is used in Pakistan) and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs). Geometrical structure and behavior of output mechanical energy for rotary motors results its best performance in case of HEVs, while Linear Motors (LM) arerecommended for translational motion as in case of Electric Trains. Several linear electric motors have been investigated for electric trains such as linear dcmotor, linear induction motor, and linear switched reluctance motor. Linear dc motor has inherent high maintenance cost due to stator faults and brushes.Linear Induction Motor shows reduced air-gap average flux linkage and thrust, additional stator faults due to stator bars, and strong nonlinearities causedby end effects. While, Linear Switched Reluctance Motors represent high force ripple and leads to vibration and acoustic noise.A new structure of Three Phase Hybrid Excited Linear Flux Switching Motor (HELFSM), consists of segmented stator and non-overlap windings is proposed.The combination should improve the mechanical strength of the motor suitable for high speed drive, reduce the copper consumption, minimizing the weightand copper loss as well as the cost. The main objective of this research is to develop a novel structure of electronically controlled HELFSM with high thrustforce and high-power densities for future light weight Advanced Electric Power Train. The operating principle of HELFSM will be investigated and the initial performances will be optimized. Finally, the optimum design of HELFSM will be fabricated and validated experimentally. It is expected that the proposedlight weight HELFSM with segmented stator and non-overlap windings will generate much higher thrust force and power densities to be applied for futureElectric Power Train.
