Abstract: Crude oil is used for fuel needs in cars, trucks, heavy machineries, ships etc. Jet fuel is needed to power aircraft for commercial transport. This fuel form is extensively used for defense applications also. Existing global fossil fuel reserves are rapidly depleting. As resource decreases and consumption increases prices will continue to rise. The alternative solution for fuel needs in industrial scale can be obtained using algae. Selected algae can produce 50% oil and 50% biomass which can be converted into fuel products and this in turn makes algae, a valuable, sustainable and renewable fuel resources. This paper presents the simulation results of a cascaded high voltage converter for a system voltage of 230V ac used for algae lysing using pulsed electric field technology. Lysing is the process of breaking down the cell wall in order to isolate the lysate or cellular components necessary to produce biofuel. The proposed system is distinct from other known systems because of its ability to adjust peak voltage, pulse width and frequency of the output waveform independently. The converter is able to provide a range of output voltage from 10V-80V peak, 60Hz-100 KHz frequency and 20 to 80 % duty cycle.
Keywords: Pulsed electric field; Lysing; Biofuel; Cascaded high voltage converter.
