Chopper Fed DC Drives

Chopper Fed DC Drives: The variable voltage to the armature of a dc motor for speed control can be obtained from a dc chopper which is a single stage dc to dc conversion device. The voltage variation at the load terminals can be obtained by using either current limit control or time ratio control. In […]

DC Chopper

DC Chopper: DC Chopper are mainly dc to dc single stage conversion devices which provide a variable voltage on the load side when fed from a constant dc voltage source. The commutation of the current from the thyristors cannot be achieved by means of supply voltage. The necessary reactive power for the converter must be […]

Electric Converter

Electric Converter: Electric Converter – The speed of a dc motor can be varied by varying the armature voltage or the field current, for which a variable dc supply is required. The speed of an ac motor, on the other hand, can be varied by varying its supply frequency. In order to achieve the rated […]
