Machines employing thyristor- and diode-assisted commutation (TAC and DAC) offer numerous advantages over conventional dc machines in applications where commutation is a problem. It is anticipated that the first practical developments will involve adaptations of present systems, followed at a later date by the introduction of more unconventional construction techniques.
