    Abstract: This paper presents a new method of predicting power based on predictive direct power control. This method reduces power ripple in a doubly fed induction generator, which makes it possible to have a smoother synchronization with the grid in low constant frequency switching. To achieve fast and smooth grid synchronization without any over current, t... Show More

    Abstract: As with biomass, hydro, solar and wind power, fusion power can also generate clean energy, using deuterium, an isotope of hydrogen, abundantly available in our oceans. Our sun uses hydrogen in a fusion process to generate power. It has been demonstrated that fusion power can be generated on earth, under carefully controlled conditions using deuteri... Show More
