    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Sheikhi Azizi, Abbas (Author) ; Kaboli, Shahriyar (Supervisor)
    High voltage power supplies have a wide range of applications, and due to their high cost, it is essential to monitor their condition to predict potential failures and prevent significant losses. The most common cause of power supply failure is the wear and tear of its components. However, these components can be replaced before they wear out completely to prevent the failure of the power supply and, consequently, avoid damaging the load. Estimating the lifetime of power supplies is crucial because it allows for scheduled maintenance and helps prevent significant problems in power supplies. By estimating the lifespan of a power supply, one can anticipate when it may fail, allowing for the...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Zibarzani, Ali (Author) ; Kaboli, Shahriar (Supervisor)
    In this research, we have presented a method to delay the propagation of fault current in high voltage power supplies. Common protection methods usually protect the load and do not protect the power supply itself well. In this research, our goal was to propose a method to prevent the short circuit fault current from reaching the power supply elements. At first, the available methods to limit the fault current and protect the high voltage power sources were studied and investigated. Then, using the transmission line theory, a ladder filter was designed as an alternative to the normal filter at the output of the power supply.

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Nouri Jevinani, Hadi (Author) ; Kaboli, Shahriyar (Supervisor)
    Some microwave tubes can function as a narrowband power amplifier and their output power spectrum is an indicator of their amplification and efficiency. One of the factors affecting its power spectrum is the noise and ripple of its HVDC power supply. To reduce the negative effects of power supply, first there should be an exact measurement of ripple and noise in the output of the HVDC power supply. Destructive factors which affect voltage ripple measurement in the case of high DC voltage are follows as conductive interference, radiative interference, intrinsic noise of electrical elements, and nonideal frequency response of voltage divider. After identifying and suppressing the mentioned...

    Control of Three-phase UPS with Nonlinear Load Using Disturbance Observer Considering Transformer Concerns

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Shahriari, Zohair (Author) ; Tahami, Farzad (Supervisor)
    Nowadays, non-linear loads comprise an important part of electrical grids. One of the most essential sources of nonlinear loads is switching power supplies, which mainly include power electronic rectifiers. When power outage occurs, Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) must be able to supply these loads. The nonlinearity of the load has a significant effect on the Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of the output voltage, which may not be easily reduced, especially in three-phase inverters. Furthermore, the presence of isolating transformers in these power supplies limits the control of harmonics and intensifies the nonlinear effects of the system.In this Master Thesis, a disturbance observer is...

    Analysis and Improvement of Output Voltage Ripple in High Voltage DC Power Supply

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ziaoddini, Mojtaba (Author) ; Kaboli, Shahryar (Supervisor)
    The TWT is highly sensitive to the ripple amplitude of its power supply output voltage. If the amplitude of the output voltage's ripple exceeds a certain limit, the amplitude of the undesired harmonics in the power spectrum of the TWT is greatly increased. Increasing the amplitude of undesired harmonics in the TWT output power spectrum reduces the accuracy and performance of the TWT. Therefore, for optimum TWT performance, a low-ripple power supply is essential. Typically, a low-frequency rectifier or high-frequency switching structure is used to build a high-voltage DC power supply. In this thesis, the different structures of high voltage DC power supplies are studied. Next, by focusing on... 

    Reliability Improvement of the High Voltage Power Supply Based on Interleaved Inverters

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Keshtkar Teeula, Afshin (Author) ; Kaboli, Shahriyar (Supervisor)
    In some high voltage applications it is necessary for high voltage power supply (HVPS) to operate over a wide load and gain range. For instance a HVPS may be used to supply various microwave tubes. Our goal in this thesis is to design a HVPS which can provide a DC voltage between 0-15 KV and 0-5 KW. In convetional approaches, operating over wide load and gain range necessitates the switching frequency or duty cycle to swing over a wide range. This approach may disturb soft switching, consequently switching loss will increase. The control process will be more complex too. the wide swing range of switching frequency means that the HVPS needs to operate with low switching frequency too....
