Fast fault detection (FD) and reconfiguration is necessary for fault tolerant power electronic converters in safety critical applications to prevent further damage and to make the continuity of service possible. The aim of this study is to minimize the number of the used additional voltage sensors in a fault tolerant three-phase converter. In this paper, first a practical implementation of a very fast FD scheme with reduced sensor number is discussed. Then, an optimization in this scheme is also presented to decrease the detection time. For FD, special time and voltage criterion are applied to observe the error in the estimated phase-to-phase voltages for a specific period of time. The...
Fast detection of open-switch faults with reduced sensor count for a fault-tolerant three-phase converter, Article 2011 2nd Power Electronics, Drive Systems and Technologies Conference, PEDSTC 2011 ; 2011 , Pages 546-550 ; 9781612844213 (ISBN) ; Zolghadri, M ; Poure, P ; Saadate, S ; Sharif University of Technology
Fast fault detection and reconfiguration is necessary in power electronic converters in lots of applications to prevent further damage and to make possible the continuity of service. In this paper a very fast fault detection scheme is presented that minimizes the use of voltage sensors. A fault tolerant topology is studied. Control and fault detection system are implemented on a single FPGA and hardware in the loop experiments are performed to evaluate the detection scheme, the digital controller and the structure
