2017 IEEE 44th Photovoltaic Specialist Conference, PVSC 2017   1-6   May 2018
© 2017 IEEE. The Output of photovoltaic (PV) systems depends on weather conditions. Therefore if there is a large introduction of PV systems, the power quality in the distribution system will be affected. One effective solution for this problem is...

2017 IEEE 44th Photovoltaic Specialist Conference, PVSC 2017   1-7   May 2018
© 2017 IEEE. In the case of a mass introduction of PV the instability of PV system output leads to a deterioration of power quality in the distribution system. In this research, we focus on the storage battery operation to achieve a balance betwee...

IEEE Transactions on Magnetics   54    Mar 2018
© 1965-2012 IEEE. Because a synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM) does not require permanent magnets, its industrial applications focus on lowering manufacturing costs. However, the SynRM has disadvantages. It experiences a lower average torque and...
