The proposed paper produces the high gain and low harmonic content in the permanent magnet synchronous motor fed Z-source inverter. The hybrid solar and fuel-based motor produces more power by using the direct torque control. The control based PMSM fed inverter for continuous power production. The dc bus voltage is regulated by using the DTC based PMSM. The speed of a permanent magnet synchronous motor is regulated, and the proposed DTC is minimizing the torque and flux ripple. In order to...

The noise introduced in the channel obviously affects the bit error rate of the communication system and this has direct impact in the security. Here the main problem is that the receiver terminal decoding techniques can lead to wrong interpretation even if the Bit Error Rate (BER) is acceptable.
