Hardware Systems Versus Microprocessor Control

Hardware Systems Versus Microprocessor Control: The Hardware Systems Versus Microprocessor Control control of electric drives offers the following advantages when compared to the dedicated hardware control. As has already been discussed, the use of microprocessors reduces the com­plexity of the system. The software supported control using microprocessors to perform the functions of controllers eventually result in […]

Introduction to Microprocessors and Control of Electric Drives

Introduction to Microprocessors and Control of Electric Drives: Introduction to Microprocessors and Control of Electric Drives – Conventionally, control of thyristor converter fed electrical drives (both dc and ac) is performed using analog discrete components. In the drive con­trol, conventional speed control systems have been improved continuously and gradually in terms of their control performance, […]
