Contract Awarded for Manufactured and delivered India's first 800KV high-voltage direct current (HVDC) power transformer for the Champa-Kurukshetra ultra-high-voltage direct current (UHVDC) phase one link.
This first volume is devoted to converting direct current to direct current (DC-DC), and covers modeling DC-DC converters, classical DC-DC pulse-width modulator hard-switching converters, and derived structures of DC-DC converters.
They cover principles of self-commutating conversion, multi-level voltage source conversion, multi-level reinjection, modelling and controlling converter dynamics, pulse-width-modulation high-voltage direct current transmission, ultra-high-voltage voltage-source conversion transmission, ultra-high-voltage self-commutating current-source conversion transmission, back-to-back asynchronous interconnection, low-voltage high-direct-current AC-DC conversion, and power conversion for high-energy storage.
London, July 15 (ANI): Japanese researchers say that the leakage of power, which results when a gadget converts alternating current to direct current, may be reduced by a third by switching to converters that use gallium nitride transistors rather than silicon ones.
