Braking and 4 quadrants Operation

Braking and 4 Quadrants Operation: Subsynchronous converter cascades have been used, till now, in applications requiring one quadrant operation. These can be employed for drives where at least one electrical braking is required. A 4 Quadrants Operation can also be made possible in these cascades, using suitable switching. The braking is obtained by connecting the […]

Four Quadrants Converters

Four Quadrants Converters: Four Quadrants Converters – The converters described in the previous sections are suitable either for one quadrant or two quadrant operation. In the former case stepless speed control is possible by changing the applied voltage. There is no regeneration. In the latter case both speed control and regeneration are possible. The converter […]
