2. How Power Electronics contribute to the Actual Energy Arena
Speaker Name: Professor Leopoldo G. Franquelo, Spain
Abstract:
The current energy scenario has introduced several challenges to be solved such as the integration of clean energy generation and the use of efficient high-power and energy storage systems. The energy industry has to face the problems introduced by the integration of renewable energy systems in terms of reliability and stability of the power grid. In addition, energy distribution systems based on the HVDC topology are being installed all over the world. On the other hand, it becomes extremely important to use energy storage systems in order to stabilize and improve the efficiency of the power systems using ultimate generation batteries, ultracapacitors, hydrogen based systems and mechanical systems, among others. Nowadays, the power electronics offers efficient solutions to be applied to the new distributed energy grid concept. The keynote speech reviews briefly the current scenario where power electronics converters are being applied.  The energy distribution systems, the renewable energy sources, the energy storage systems and the high-power applications, will be addressed reviewing the different alternatives and topologies, already as industrial products or still as research lines in the academia.

3. Real Time Position Estimation for Induction Motors using Rotor Slot Harmonics
Speaker Name: Professor H. Bülent Ertan, Turkey
Abstract:
It is well known that slotting harmonics exist in most of the electrical machines. These harmonics may supply valuable information for condition monitoring of bearings, windings or rotor bars. In the literature spectral estimation techniques are commonly used for this purpose. Long sampling time and computational effort required in this kind of approach, prohibit utilization of these harmonics for rotor speed and position estimation. This study introduces a novel speed and position estimation method, which overcomes problems associated with spectral estimation techniques. In this approach extracting the required information can be done within a typical control cycle of a vector controlled drive algorithm. In the application of the method, higher order rotor slot harmonics have been utilized. The approach is explained in the paper and illustrated with experimental results.

4. Permanent Magnet Flux Switching Machines Topologies, Analysis and Optimization
Speaker Name: Professor Jian-Xin Shen, China
Abstract:

Nowadays, permanent magnet (PM) brushless machines have been attracting many research attentions and widely employed in various applications, thanks to their inherent merits such as high power density, excellent efficiency and superior controllability. In both rotary and linear PM brushless machines, there are two types of electromagnetic torques/forces:
1) the PM torque/force (also-called mutual torque/force) generated by the interaction between the magnetic fields by the armatures and magnets; 2) reluctance torque/force produced by the rotor saliency. Consequently, PM brushless machines are preferably of salience in order that both types of torques/forces could be accordingly harnessed to enhance the machine performance. Permanent magnet flux switching machine (PMFSM) is a typical salient PM machine that has been widely studied and reported over the last decades. The PMFSM has most advantages of the conventional PM brushless machines. Moreover, it employs a simple passive rotor, which is the same as that of a switched reluctance motor and hence mechanically rugged. On the other hand, the PMFSM has both armature windings and permanent magnets on the stator. Nevertheless, unlike a PM flux reversal machine which has the magnets mounted on the surface of stator teeth or a doubly-salient PM machine which allocates magnets in the stator yoke, the PMFSM has its magnets sandwiched between two stator iron teeth. This unique configuration introduces bi-polar PM-excited flux linkage in the armature windings and helps to increase the power density. Moreover, the PMFSM can easily get the heat inside the magnets due to eddy current loss dissipated, and therefore prevent the magnets from being locally overheated and demagnetized. In this paper, topologies of both rotary and linear PMFSM will be reviewed, and operation principles in both motoring and generatoring modes will be introduced. Further, practical issues, such as cogging torque/force analysis and suppression, geometric optimization, as well as enhancement of field-weakening capability, will be detailed. Finally, some prospective applications of the PMFSM will be presented and discussed.

5. Digital Control Switching Power Supply Techniques for Green IT
Speaker Name: Professor Fujio Kurokawa, Japan
Abstract:
In recent years, the demand for data centers has increased because of the spread of internet-based systems and services. As the number of systems increases, the power consumption becomes large. In Japan, the national project was established to save the energy in the data center and is called "Green IT Project." The dc power supply system is gaining attentions in the data center, while the ac power supply system has been widely used. The dc power supply system has advantages compared to the existing ac distribution power feeding system. The commercial ac power has to be converted to the dc voltages in order to connect with battery, which is necessary to ensure the reliability in the data center. It is then converted to the ac power again in the ac power supply system. On the other hands, the dc bus can be directly connected with the battery in the dc power supply system. The number of power conversion stages is less than ac distribution power feeding system. Since the overall efficiency of the system becomes higher by introducing higher dc bus voltage, the Higher voltage direct-current (HVDC) feeding system attract attentions.
The battery is required to ensure the reliability in the data center. The voltage decreases significantly in the HVDC system when the battery is discharged. So the switching power supply unit performs against the wide input voltage. Nevertheless, the good regulation characteristic and superior dynamic response must be satisfied, keeping the high efficiency.
The keynote speech reviews a digital control switching power supply for the HVDC system in data center to realize such high performance power supply system. The performance characteristics including the high efficiency, good regulation characteristics against the input voltage of the server as the load and superior transient response are realized in this converter for the HVDC system. The digital control consists of both a digital peak current mode control and the existing fast P control. The converters operate in parallel to provide the redundancy then ensure the reliability.

6. Energy Management with Energy Storage: Control Strategies and Design Methodology Suitable for Power Hybridization of Vehicles and Renewable Energies
Speaker Name: Professor Brayima Dakyo, France
Abstract:
A micro power generation with a diesel systems and renewable energy is drastically subject to disturbances directly attributed to the fluctuations and the intermittency of the resources. To ensure availability of energy, long life and efficiency of the system it appears highly recommended to use storage units. According to the formulation of the problem of energy storage, time or frequency properties tied to the available technologies should be linked to the problem of multi-objective management of energy. This proposal discussion deals with strategies for managing energy in a power system including wind, diesel engine, flywheel, battery and super capacitor as hybridization candidates. A generic approach to design is associated. Technically, electrical power generation systems of fully renewable energy are not achievable for commonly use of electric power. The reason why is that the resources availability matching the demand requirement is not always ensured. Therefore, hybridization of conventional sources (oil or gas) with renewable sources and storage devices is the solution used in recent years. The main way to target sustainability (minimizing Co2 emission) is then to maximize penetration ratio of "green power" involved with renewable sources. According to energy storage issue, the properties of available technologies can be spread on dual energy-power definition, related to time horizon of effectiveness Basically, a DC link is often use as common coupling solution, in such a case because of the wind generator power fluctuation, instability occurs and different storage devices could be used to absorb disturbances. As established according the power range, the use of battery technology provides a low power but high energy capacity, while the Super Capacitor or flywheel have a high power capacity but low energy. So, how can we manage dynamically the batteries and SC transient energy in order to absorb damaging middle range or high frequencies current? Recent studies have given some solutions the purpose will deal with. The energy management systems, the renewable energy sources, the energy storage systems and the hybridization, will be addressed reviewing sample cases approach in some recent studies or demonstrative experimental plants.

7. Diagnosis and Detection Fault in Induction Machine
Speaker Name: Professor Youcef Soufi, Algeria
Abstract:
Nowadays, an improved reliability of the electric drives turns to be a crucial requirement in order to guarantee a high production-capability of the manufacturing process. In spite of its popularity, the induction motor suffers from the likelihood of some disturbing faults, whose diagnosis is currently given an increasing attention in many industrial fields. Recently, research has picked up a fervent pace in the area of fault diagnosis of electrical machines. The manufacturers and users of these drives are now keen to include diagnostic features in the software to improve salability and reliability. Apart from locating specific harmonic components in the line current (popularly known as motor current signature analysis), other signals, such as speed, torque, noise, vibration etc., are also explored for their frequency contents. Sometimes, altogether different techniques, such as thermal measurements, chemical analysis, etc., are also employed to find out the nature and the degree of the fault. Broken bars, eccentricity and short circuit between turns in the stator are the relatively common faults in induction motors. These effects have been extensively investigated during the last decade. Several methods have been developed for the identification of this kind of faults, originally based on thermal and vibration monitoring, followed by axial flux monitoring, current monitoring, instantaneous power monitoring, air-gap torque monitoring, shaft current monitoring. In this keynote speech, the mechanical and electrical faults which can occur in the induction machine will be reviewed and the different methods for diagnostics of such faults will be introduced. Then the most frequently used method such as the stator current evolution, motor current spectral analysis and d-q phasor analysis of the stator phase-currents will be detailed. Finally, some of prospective applications of the considered method will be presented and discussed.

3. Remote Laboratories and Industrial Electronics Engineering Education
Speaker Name: Luis Gomes, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Faculty of Sciences and Technology
Abstract:
Very often, the concepts of learning and teaching appear somehow mixed together although their use emphasizes who is considered to be at the center of the process. At European level, Bologna Declaration has put the emphasis on the "What students do?" paradigm, shifting the center of the process to the student. Such paradigm also supports lifelong learning objectives. The remote laboratory concept provides a tool to sustain this shift towards a student-centric teaching approach. However, within engineering education, this means an additional stress on laboratories, as a result from the pressure to increase experimentation, and raises the question: how to handle overcrowded laboratories? Remote labs present a solution to this problem, allowing students to access experiments without time and location restrictions. Remote laboratories have been introduced during the last decades into engineering education processes, as well as integrated within e-learning frameworks offered to engineering and science students. In this presentation, after a brief overview of state of the art technologies in the development of remote labs and presentation of several recent examples of remote labs in several areas related with industrial electronics education, some current trends and challenges are also identified and discussed, as well as a historical perspective on related technical activities in IES will be provided.
