Series and Shunt Compensation of Transmission Lines

Series and Shunt Compensation of Transmission Lines: The performance of long EHV AC transmission systems can be improved by reactive compensation of series or shunt (parallel) type. Series capacitors and shunt reactors are used to reduce artificially the series reactance and shunt susceptance of lines and thus they act as the line compensators. Series and …

Load Commutated Chopper Circuit

Load Commutated Chopper Circuit: In this method of Load Commutated Chopper Circuit, the load current flowing through the thyristor is made to become zero while the motor current is conducted by the free-wheeling diode. Figure 10.36(a) shows the circuit of a Load Commutated Chopper. The thyristor pairs Th1Th2 and Th3Th4 alternatively conduct the load current. …

What is TRIAC?

What is TRIAC? | Symbolic Representation | VI Characteristics of TRIAC: What is TRIAC? – The full form of TRIAC is Triode for Alternating Current (TRIAC) or Triode for AC. It is a bilateral switch with three terminals—anode, cathode and a single gate. It conducts in either direction being equivalent to two SCRs connected in …

Variable Reluctance Stepper Motor Working Principle

Variable Reluctance Stepper Motor Working Principle: A Variable Reluctance Stepper Motor Working Principle consists of a single or several stacks of stators and rotors-stators have a common frame and rotors have a common shaft as shown in the longitudinal cross-sectional view of Fig. 10.34 for a 3-stack motor. Both stators and rotors have toothed structure …
