A current source inverter with series connected AC capacitors for photovoltaic application with grid fault ride through capability
Conference Proceeding
Photong, C., Klumpner, C., & Wheeler, P. (in press). A current source inverter with series connected AC capacitors for photovoltaic application with grid fault ride through capability. In 2009 35th Annual Conference of IEEE Industrial Electronicsdoi:10.1109/IECON.2009.5414954

The current source inverter (CSI) is preferred to interface a renewable source such photovoltaics (PV) to the AC power grid because it can provide smooth current source in the DC side, which fits to the PV behaviour and also steps-up the voltage from... Read More

Superconducting and conventional electromagnetic launch system for civil aircraft assisted take-off
Conference Proceeding
Bertola, L., Cox, T., Wheeler, P., & Garvey, S. D. (in press). Superconducting and conventional electromagnetic launch system for civil aircraft assisted take-off

This paper compares three possible linear motor topologies for an electromagnetic launch system to assist civil aircraft take-off. Assisted launch of civil aircraft has the potential of reducing the required runway length, reducing noise and emission... Read More
