A new robust passive waveshaper based on 24-pulse ac-dc conversion is proposed to feed voltage source inverter (VSI) supplying squirrel-cage induction motor drive. The passive waveshaper consists of a newly designed T-connected autotransformer with less number of windings resulting in simplicity in design and manufacturing. The proposed 24-pulse ac-dc converter is found capable of suppressing less than 23rd harmonics in the supply current. The power factor is also improved to near unity in the wide operating range of the vector-controlled induction motor drive (VCIMD). Finally, the design of the autotransformer is modified to make it suitable for applications, where presently a 6-pulse diode bridge rectifier is used. A laboratory prototype of proposed T-connected autotransformer-based 24-pulse ac-dc converter is developed and test results are presented to validate the developed design procedure and the simulation models of this ac-dc converter under varying loads
