Pinheiro, Humberto (1999) Resonant UPS topologies for the emerging hybrid fiber coaxial networks. PhD thesis, Concordia University.
Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems have been extensively applied to feed critical loads in many areas. Typical examples of critical loads include life-support equipment, computers and telecommunication systems. Although all UPS systems have a common purpose to provide continuous power-to critical loads, the emerging hybrid fiber-coaxial networks have created the need for specific types of UPS topologies. For example, galvanic isolation for the load and the battery, small size, high input power factor, and trapezoidal output voltage waveforms are among the required features of UPS topologies for hybrid fiber-coaxial networks. None of the conventional UPS topologies meet all these requirements. Consequently. this thesis is directed towards the design and analysis of UPS topologies for this new application. Novel UPS topologies are proposed and control techniques are developed to allow operation at high switching frequencies without penalizing the converter efficiency. By the use of resonant converters in the proposed UPS topologies. a high input power factor is achieved without requiring a dedicated power factor correction stage. In addition, a self-sustained oscillation control method is proposed to ensure soft switching under all operating conditions. A detailed analytical treatment of the resonant converters in the proposed UPS topologies is presented and design procedures illustrated. Simulation and experimental results are presented to validate the analyses and to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed schemes.
