In MATLAB, one can have a converter that can convert DC-DC to AC and vice versa, as well as convert AC to DC-DC. This can be done simply by using an external inductor as a transformer. With the external inductor, it is possible to change the frequency of an electric generator from DC to AC. However, there are many other types of converters that can be used.
In the MATLAB assignment, I thought that it would be easy to convert a transformer into an external inductor and convert this external inductor into an analog input and output voltage. After completing the conversion, it was apparent that it was not as simple as it seemed.
There are certain things that should be considered when doing DC-DC conversions. The MATLAB assignment help provided me with a great example of how to convert an inductor into an output capacitor, then step this new capacitor into a series inductor.
I was surprised to find that converting the inductor into an output capacitor before stepping this new capacitor into a series inductor could cause a problem with any DC-DC conversions that I made with a second capacitor. I learned that if a capacitor is placed between the DC source and the inductor, it can cause the capacitors values to change. If the voltage of the capacitor is larger than the inductor’s frequency, it will affect the voltage of the inductor, which will then affect the DC-DC conversion.
For this reason, it is important to be sure that the inductor and capacitor values are the same prior to beginning the DC-DC conversions in MATLAB. It is also important to make sure that the capacitor values are the same prior to making any DC-DC conversions in MATLAB.
To solve this problem, MatLab provided me with a great MATLAB function, called phi. This function is used to transform a value into a quantity that is within the desired range.
Once I had completed my first DC-DC conversion in MATLAB, it was obvious that I would need a way to do something similar for the inductor. I figured that if I didn’t know how to use MATLAB, then I would need to get the help of an instructor. When looking for an instructor, I came across a website, called Capacitorius.com.
Capacitorius.com gave me a MATLAB solution for both the inductor and capacitor conversions that I needed. They provided me with a series resistor array, which I applied to each capacitor. I found this method very helpful in reducing the effect of the inductor.
However, I still wanted to use another MATLAB function, called Phi, in order to convert the inductor into a series inductor. Although the series inductor is another MATLAB function, it is slightly more complicated. Since it has to deal with capacitance, I found the code for this procedure much more difficult to write.
Fortunately, an instructor of mine had also written some MATLAB code that can convert inductors into capacitors. This code was much easier to type, and once it was all put together, I was able to convert my induction into a series inductor very easily.
I am very glad that I took advantage of MatLab for this project. It allowed me to learn about MATLAB at its best, solving my problems in an easy to understand manner.
