Design and Implementation of a New Resonant Soft-Switching dc/dc Buck Converter

Arezou Nourbehesht; Masoud Jabbari

Volume 10, Issue 38 , August 2019, Pages 3-12

Abstract
  This paper presents a new step-down resonant dc-dc converter derived from the family of Switched-Resonator converters (SwRC). Soft-switching conditions are provided for both switches at turn on and turn off transitions by switching under zero-current (ZCS). ZCS technique switching losses and enables ...  Read More

Optimal Observer Path Planning in Tracking Two Targets Using Side Angle Measurements

S.Ehsan Razavi; Parastoo Poursoltani; Naser Pariz

Volume 10, Issue 38 , August 2019, Pages 33-42

Abstract
  Multi-target tracking is considered to be a significant issue in various areas of monitoring, supervision, and updated communication services. It is a logical, generalized, single-target tracking problem. Therefore, it is of paramount importance to apply filters to measure the direction or relative distance ...  Read More
