    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.73, No.3, pp. 6169-6180, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.026343

    Abstract This paper presents the design of wideband and high gain Frequency Selective Surface (FSS) loaded antenna for ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless applications requiring high-gain. The antenna consists of a monopole and an FSS reflector. Initially, a conventional rectangular monopole antenna is modified using slot and stub to achieve wide operational bandwidth and size reduction. This modified antenna shows 50% miniaturization compared to a primary rectangular monopole, having a wide impedance bandwidth of 3.6–11.8 GHz. Afterward, an FSS is constructed by the combination of circular and square ring structures. The FSS array consisting of 8 × 8-unit cells are integrated with the antenna as… More >

    PMSG Based Wind Energy Conversion System Using Intelligent MPPT with HGRSC Converter

    S. Kirubadevi*, S. Sutha

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.34, No.2, pp. 895-910, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.025395

    Abstract Wind power conversion systems play a significant position in grid-coupled renewable source networks. In this paper, a permanent magnet based synchronous alternator type wind energy scheme is considered for analysis. The enhanced performance of wind power conversion could be reached by improving maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and by modernising the control circuit of the power electronic circuit. The main task is to enrich its performance level by proposing fuzzy gain scheduling (FGS) based optimal torque management for maximum power point tracking. In addition to the improved MPPT, this article analyses different topologies of direct current–direct current (DC–DC) converters such… More >

    M. Bharathidasan1, V. Indragandhi1, Ramya Kuppusamy2, Yuvaraja Teekaraman3, Shabana Urooj4,*, Norah Alwadi5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.71, No.2, pp. 4069-4084, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.021846

    Abstract Renewable electricity options, such as fuel cells, solar photovoltaic, and batteries, are being integrated, which has made DC micro-grids famous. For DC micro-grid systems, a multi input interleaved non-isolated dc-dc converter is suggested by the use of coupled inductor techniques. Since it compensates for mismatches in photovoltaic devices and allows for separate and continuous power flow from these sources. The proposed converter has the benefits of high gain, a low ripple in the output voltage, minimal stress voltage across the power semiconductor devices, a low ripple in inductor current, high power density, and high efficiency. Soft-switching techniques are used to… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.71, No.1, pp. 1613-1623, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.022289

    Abstract High gain antennas are highly desirable for long-range wireless communication systems. In this paper, a compact, low profile, and high gain dielectric resonator antenna is proposed, fabricated, experimentally tested, and verified. The proposed antenna system has a cylindrical dielectric resonator antenna with a height of 9 mm and a radius of 6.35 mm as a radiating element. The proposed dielectric resonator antenna is sourced with a slot while the slot is excited with a rectangular microstrip transmission line. The microstrip transmission line is designed for a 50 Ω impedance to provide maximum power to the slot. As a result, the… More >

    Ahmed Jamal Abdullah Al-Gburi*, Imran Bin Mohd Ibrahim, Zahriladha Zakaria, Badrul Hisham Ahmad, Noor Azwan Bin Shairi, Mohammed Yousif Zeain

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.70, No.1, pp. 1419-1436, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.019741

    Abstract In this paper, a high gain and directional coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed ultra-wideband (UWB) planar antenna with a new frequency selective surface (FSS) unit cells design is proposed for UWB applications. The proposed UWB antenna was designed based on the Mercedes artistic-shaped planar (MAP) antenna. The antenna consisted of a circular ring embedded with three straight legs for antenna impedance bandwidth improvement. The modelled FSS used the integration of a two parallel conductive metallic patch with a circular loop structure. The FSS provided a UWB stopband filter response covering a bandwidth of 10.5 GHz, for frequencies from 2.2 to 12.7 GHz.… More >

    Comparative Design and Study of A 60 GHz Antenna for Body-Centric Wireless Communications

    Kaisarul Islam1, Tabia Hossain1, Mohammad Monirujjaman Khan1,*, Mehedi Masud2, Roobaea Alroobaea2

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.37, No.1, pp. 19-32, 2021, DOI:10.32604/csse.2021.015528

    Abstract In this paper performance of three different designs of a 60 GHz high gain antenna for body-centric communication has been evaluated. The basic structure of the antenna is a slotted patch consisting of a rectangular ring radiator with passive radiators inside. The variation of the design was done by changing the shape of these passive radiators. For free space performance, two types of excitations were used—waveguide port and a coaxial probe. The coaxial probe significantly improved both the bandwidth and radiation efficiency. The center frequency of all the designs was close to 60 GHz with a bandwidth of more than… More >

    A Novel Single Switch High Gain DC-DC Converter Topology for Renewable Energy Systems

    G. Indira Kishore1, M. Premkumar1,*, Ramesh Kumar Tripathi2, Chandra Sekhar Nalamati2

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.2, pp. 199-209, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2021.014079

    Abstract Renewable energy with sources such as photovoltaic (PV) or fuel cells can be utilized for the generation of electrical power. But these sources generate fewer voltage values and therefore require high gain converters to match with DC bus voltage in microgrids. These high gain converters can be implemented with switched capacitors to meet the required DC bus voltage. Switched capacitors operate in a series and parallel combination during switching operation and produce high static gain, limits reverse voltage that appears across the components. A novel converter is proposed that satisfies all the features such as high voltage gain, only one… More >

    Abstract In this paper, a low cost, highly efficient and low profile monopole antenna for ultra-wideband (UWB) applications is presented. A new inverted triangular-shape structure possessing meander lines is designed to achieve a wideband response and high efficiency. To design the proposed structure, three steps are utilized to achieve an UWB response. The bandwidth of the proposed antenna is improved with changing meander lines parameters, miniaturization of the ground width and optimization of the feeding line. The measured and simulated frequency band ranges from 3.2 to 12 GHz, while the radiation patterns are measured at 4, 5.3, 6 and 8 GHz… More >

    Daniyal Ali Sehrai1, Fazal Muhammad1, Saad Hassan Kiani1, Ziaul Haq Abbas2, Muhammad Tufail3, Sunghwan Kim4, *

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.64, No.3, pp. 1587-1599, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.011057

    Abstract Metamaterial surfaces play a vital role to achieve the surface waves suppression and in-phase reflection, in order to improve the antenna performance. In this paper, the performance comparison of a fifth generation (5G) antenna design is analyzed and compared with a metamaterial-based antenna for 5G communication system applications. Metamaterial surface is utilized as a reflector due to its in-phase reflection characteristic and high-impedance nature to improve the gain of an antenna. As conventional conducting ground plane does not give enough surface waves suppression which affects the antenna performance in terms of efficiency and gain etc. These factors are well considered… More >
