Control of Electrical Drives

Control of Electrical Drives: Closed Loop Speed Control of Multi Motor Drives : When mechanical part of the load is of large physical dimension it becomes desirable to share the load between several motors. For example a rotary printing press usually has several printing stations which are mechanically coupled by a long drive shaft. Control …

Modes of Operation of Electrical Drive

Modes of Operation of Electrical Drive: Three types of Modes of Operation of Electrical Drive: Steady-State Acceleration including starting Deceleration including stopping As we know already, steady-state operation takes place when motor torque equals the load torque. The steady-state operation for a given speed is realized by the adjustment of steady-state motor speed-torque curve such …

Dynamics of Electrical Drives

Dynamics of Electrical Drives: Classification of Load Torques : As we know already, the nature of Classification of Load Torques depends on particular application. A low speed hoist is an example of a load where the torque is constant and independent of the speed (Fig. 2.3). At low speeds, windage torque is negligible. Therefore, net …
