Static Converter as a Power Actuator for DC Drives

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


A characteristic feature of the rotating converter discussed in Sect. 7.4 is the consecutive power conversion from electrical (constant AC line voltage) to mechanical (speed of motor-generator) and back to electrical form (variable direct voltage) from which it is eventually transformed by the drive motor into controlled mechanical power. These conversions constitute the advantages of the control scheme (separate electrical circuits, decoupling by rotating masses) as well as its drawbacks (cost of machines, foundations, power losses, servicing, limited speed of response).
