Modeling and Analysis of 12-Pulse Inverter in Shipboard or Aircraft


With the development of DC distribution system within the isolated power system of a ship or an aircraft, more constant frequency loads will be supplied by inverters connected to DC main bus. In the operating mode conversion process of an isolated power system, inverters will inevitably suffer from serious disturbance and affect the stability of the system. Therefore, it is important to establish a model of the inverter that reflects its dynamic characteristics and based on which to conduct the stability analysis. This paper proposes a 12-pulse inverter model based on the generalized state space averaging (GSSA) method. This model can overcome the limitations of 12-pulse inverter state space averaging (SSA) model in transient analysis with good accuracy and fast analysis ability effectively. Three kinds of models for a 12-pulse aircraft inverter are built in MATLAB, namely GSSA model, SSA model and detail device model. The simulation results show the high accuracy of GSSA model in stability analysis. This study provides an effective analytical tool for stability analysis of 12-pulse inverter and also provides a reference for inverter modeling research of isolated power system such as in aircraft or ship.

Dynamic Analysis of Embedded Chains in Mooring Line for Fish Cage System


Investigation of the embedded chains in soil starts to play an important role in understanding the structural performance of mooring system, when the embedded anchors will be employed to sustain large loads with the gradually growth of installation depth of offshore aquaculture farm. The aim of this study is to investigate the dynamic response of mooring line considering the influence of embedded chains in clay soil for net cage system. Lumped-mass method is used to establish the numerical model for evaluating the performance of mooring line with embedded chains. To validate the numerical model, comparisons of numerical results with the analytical formulas and the experimental data are conducted. A good agreement of the profile and the tension response is obtained. Then, the effect of embedded chains on the static and dynamic response of mooring line is evaluated, and the dynamic behavior of mooring system considering embedded chains for net cage system is investigated. The results indicate that the soil resistance on embedded chains should be included to predict the mooring line development and the load on the embedded anchors in the numerical simulations. An appropriate safety factor should be included if employing the simplified model Case C at the initial design phase. And the effect of embedded chains on the holding capacity of embedded anchors in single-point mooring system for single net cage cannot be negligible during the design and operation phases. Consequently, it is profound to take into account the interaction of embedded chains and soil for accurately predicting the reliability of mooring system for fish cage.
