    Despite its tremendous potential, it is still unclear how quantum computing will scale to satisfy the requirements of its most powerful applications. Among other issues, there are hard limits to the number of qubits that ...
  • Enhanced DC-link voltage utilization for sliding mode controlled PMSM drives 

    Repecho del Corral, Víctor; Sierra González, Andrés; Ibarra Basabe, Edorta; Biel Solé, Domingo; Arias Pujol, Antoni (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021)
    Article
    Open Access
    Sliding mode control (SMC) can be considered for torque regulation of permanent magnet synchronous machines (PMSMs) when fast transient response and/or robustness under parameter uncertainties are required. In some particular ...
  • State of health prediction of power connectors by analyzing the degradation trajectory of the electrical resistance 

    Martínez Reyes, Jimmy Arturo; Riba Ruiz, Jordi-Roger; Moreno Eguilaz, Juan Manuel (2021-06-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    Estimating the remaining useful life (RUL) or the state of health (SoH) of electrical components such as power connectors is still a challenging and complex task. Power connectors play a critical role in medium- and ...
  • Parameter estimation of a single-phase boost PFC converter with EMI filter based on an optimization algorithm 

    Rojas Dueñas, Gabriel; Riba Ruiz, Jordi-Roger; Moreno Eguilaz, Juan Manuel (2021-05-21)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper proposes an approach to estimate the parameters of an AC–DC boost power factor corrector converter that includes an EMI filter. To this end, once the topology was known, the values of the passive elements were ...
  • Effects of the fabric substrate on performance and durability of textile-embroidered dipole antennas 

    Ventura Casellas, Heura; Parés Sabatés, Ferran; Fernández García, Raúl; Gil Galí, Ignacio; Ardanuy Raso, Mònica (2021-05-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this work, several fabrics with different composition and structure have been used as the substrate for the production of wearable textile-embroidered dipole antennas. The performance of the antennas has been determined ...
