Control of Converter-supplied DC Drives

  • Werner Leonhard
Part of the Power Systems book series (POWSYS)


Static converters are ideal electronic actuators for DC drives because of their practically unlimited output power and excellent controllability. The speed of response is usually adequate to handle the electromechanical transients occurring in drives. Line-commutated, phase controlled converters or, as they are also called, converters with natural commutation, are the most frequent choice for industrial applications, where a three-phase supply is available; this is due to the simplicity of the circuits requiring a minimum number of active and passive components.
