    The main problem facing long-term electronic system deployments in the sea, is to find a feasible way to supply them with the power they require. Harvesting mechanical energy from the ocean wave oscillations and converting ...
  • Autonomous vehicle development for vertical submarine observation 

    Gomáriz Castro, Spartacus; Prat Tasias, Jordi; Arbós, Alejandro; Viñolo Monzoncillo, Carlos; Pallares, Oriol (2009-11-19)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This work proposes the development of an ocean observation vehicle. This vehicle, a hybrid between Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) and Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASV) moves on the surface of the sea and makes ...

    Viñolo Monzoncillo, Carlos; Toma, Daniel; Manuel Lázaro, Antonio; Río Fernandez, Joaquín del (2013)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    he main problematic about electronic systems deployed in the sea for long periods of time, is to find a feasible way to supply them with the necessary amount of power and no direct supervision. In this paper a new ...
  • Study and control of a phase-controlled series-parallel resonant converter and a phase-controlled series-parallel resonant inverter 

    Viñolo Monzoncillo, Carlos (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Polytechnic Institute of New York University, 2012-05)
    Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn
    [ANGLÈS] Resonant converters have been widely used for some few decades because of their inherit soft-switching characteristic, their fast transient response, their low losses compared to the PWM based hard-switching ...
