Average-Value Model of a High-Frequency Six-Phase Generation System
In this paper, a parametric average-value modeling approach is applied to a high-frequency six-phase aircraft generation subsystem. This approach utilizes a detailed switch-level model of the system to numerically establish the averaged dynamic relationships between the ac inputs of the rectifier and the dc-link outputs. A comparison between the average-value and detailed models is presented, wherein, the average-value model is shown to accurately portray both the large-signal time-domain transients and the small-signal frequency-domain characteristics. Since the discontinuous switching events are not present in the average-value model, significant gains can be realized in the computational performance. For the study system, the developed average-value simulation executed more than two orders of magnitude faster than the detailed simulation.
