Negative Inductance: A Potential Game Changer
Prof. Michael Tse, City University of Hong Kong
Abstract: Negative reactance, a previously absent concept in the real world, will enable the easy resolution of one of the most common problems in electrical systems! Power and energy systems often face limitations in power capacity and efficiency due to the inevitable presence of unwanted reactive power circulation. Employing a dual reactive element to counteract any unwanted reactance has been the only solution choice, for example, using capacitance to counteract leakage inductance. Such solutions involve complicated design processes and costly realizations due to the resonance nature of reactive power compensation. Up to now, there has been no alternative due to the absence of negative-valued counterparts for capacitance and inductance in the real world. Our negative inductance synthesizer can cancel real inductance directly, and change the way compensation has been done in the past century! No more resonance! No more frequency sensitivity! No more need for precision design!
