    This article describes the development of an 18 kV, 30 kW power supply for a pulsed current load with the maximum current of 20 A and a di/dt equal to 100 A/μs. The achieved output ripple is less than 0.01%. In such a high level of precision, the most important issues are considerable difference between the instantaneous and average output powers, as well as insufficient reaction speed of the converter to the fast load change. Very low level of the voltage feedback and its sensitivity to the noise. The first issue necessitates a notable overdesign of the converter switches if the output voltage precision is dedicated to the converter. The second issue raises the problems relevant to... 

    A new nonlinear controller for active power filters

    , Article 2009 International Conference on Electric Power and Energy Conversion Systems, EPECS 2009, 10 November 2009 through 12 November 2009 ; 2009 ; 9789948427155 (ISBN) Zadkhast, S ; Mokhtari, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    Linear controllers have been widely used for controlling Active Power Filters (APFs). However, due to their limitations, a tradeoff between the bandwidth of the current control loop (CCL) and the voltage control loop (VCL) need to be made to remain stable in all conditions. This tradeoff leads to imperfect usage of the APF's capacity. Nonlinear controllers can eliminate such limitations and simultaneously remain stable in all conditions. In this paper, a new nonlinear controller for controlling the output current and the DC voltage (Vdc) of an APF is proposed. Feedback linearization method is applied on the CCL and the VCL is controlled via indirect method. In this method, an auxiliary...
