    • Adaptive voltage control of the DC/DC boost stage in PV converters with small input capacitor 

      Urtasun Erburu, Andoni Upna; Sanchis Gúrpide, Pablo Upna; Marroyo Palomo, Luis Upna (IEEE, 2013)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      In the case of photovoltaic (PV) systems, an adequate PV voltage regulation is fundamental in order to both maximize and limit the power. For this purpose, a large input capacitor has traditionally been used. However, when ...
    • Control of a single-switch two-input buck converter for MPPT of two PV strings 

      Urtasun Erburu, Andoni Upna; Dah-Chuan Lu, Dylan (IEEE, 2015)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      In this paper, the Two-Input Buck (TIBuck) converter is proposed as the DC/DC stage for photovoltaic (PV) cascaded converters. This converter is attractive for this application because it is cost-effective and reliable and ...
    • Parameter-independent control for battery chargers based on virtual impedance emulation 

      Urtasun Erburu, Andoni Upna; Berrueta Irigoyen, Alberto Upna; Sanchis Gúrpide, Pablo Upna; Marroyo Palomo, Luis Upna (IEEE, 2018)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      An effective battery voltage regulation is fundamental to extend battery lifetime and to avoid overvoltage. However, the design of this regulation is complicated due to the wide battery impedance range, which, when dealing ...
