Chopper Control of Series Motor

Chopper Control of Series Motor: Motoring : Chopper Control of Series Motor and va and ia waveforms will be same as shown in Fig. 5.41. Va is given by Eq. (5.113). However, e is not constant but varies with ia. Due to saturation of magnetic circuit, relationship between e and ia is non-linear. The approximation is already …

Drawbacks of Rectifier Fed DC Drives

Drawbacks of Rectifier Fed DC Drives: Drawbacks of Rectifier Fed DC Drives are as follows: 1. Distortion of Supply: Source current of a rectifier has harmonics. In a weak ac source, with high internal impedance, current harmonics distort source voltage. Furthermore, temporary short circuit of lines during commutation of thyristors, causes sharp current pulses, which …

Rectifier Control of DC Series Motor

Rectifier Control of DC Series Motor: Single-phase controlled Rectifier Control of DC Series Motor are employed in traction. A single-phase half-controlled Rectifier Control of DC Series Motor is shown in Fig. 5.37(a). Equivalent circuit of motor is also shown. Since back emf decreases with armature current, discontinuous conduction occurs only in a narrow range of …

Dual Converter Control of DC Separately Excited Motor

Dual Converter Control of DC Separately Excited Motor: A Dual Converter Control of DC Separately Excited Motor (Fig. 5.35) consists of two fully-controlled rectifiers connected in anti-parallel across the armature. For power ratings upto around 10 kW, sigle-phase fully-controlled rectifiers can be used. For higher ratings, three-phase fully controlled rectifiers are employed. Rectifier A, which …

DC Motor Reversing Switch Diagram

DC Motor Reversing Switch Diagram: DC Motor Reversing Switch Diagram is shown in Fig. 5.34(a). A fully-controlled rectifier feeds the motor through a reversing switch RS which is used to reverse the armature connection with respect to the rectifier. A fully-controlled rectifier is capable of providing operation in quadrants I and IV. The reversal of …
