Duty ratio is low in buck converters where the output voltage is significantly reduced with regard to input voltage.
A N-level of output voltage, it is required to have [(n--l)/2] number of duty ratio [[alpha].
Besides this the increase in Customs Duty ratio also helped in the increase in the collection, it added.
Generally, the MPPT controller tracks the maximum power point by changing the duty ratio of the boost converter and thereby adjusting the voltage of the PV panel.
TABLE 1: The switching state and corresponding duty ratio in each segment.
However previous studies focused on pulsed bias voltage N pressure and modulation periods and did not emphasize the influence of duty ratio (duty ratio is the fraction of time that indicates the active status of a system in a certain period) on the microstructure and properties of these coating.
It should be noted at this point, that the first period doubling in the current-mode control converters is well known for the power electronics engineers as "subharmonic oscillations" for duty ratio greater than 0.
Comparing constructs of the normal, "wild-type" protein to the R156W mutant, they examined the two proteins' kinetics and motility and discovered the mutant has a reduced sensitivity to mechanical loads and a lower duty ratio, meaning it spends less time attached to actin filaments.
In these control strategies, the capacitor voltage is controlled by the shoot-through duty ratio and the output voltage is controlled by the modulation index, respectively.
The higher duty ratio of a mesh network (since sensor nodes need to always "listen" for messages or for changes in the prescribed routes through the mesh) is the principal reason for the high power requirements.
The regulatory duty ratio presently levied on export of steamed bones and crushed bones at the mate of 20 per cent and 15 per cent is being reduced to 10 per cent and 5 per cent respectively.
A PWM speed control pin provides enhanced motor speed control by varying the duty ratio of the PWM signal, in addition to the supply voltage.
