    A redundant static inverter is applied as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). A reliability analysis is presented showing that the introduction of a static bypass transfer switch brings about a reliability improvement of 8.5 to 1 in the mean time between failure (MTBF). This gives MTBF greater than 600 000 h. The static bypass transfer switch provides a synchronized automatic transfer in less t... View full abstract»

    DC chopper propulsion speed control is attained by a solid-state switch whose variable on-off duty cycle transfers a proportional quantity of pulsed energy into a motor. The pulsed battery current is alternately stored and expended within the dc motor and its series connected dc choke during each period of conduction and succeeding freewheeling operating mode. Hence an energy transfer is maintaine... View full abstract»

    Since its introduction in the mid 1960's the pulsewidth modulated (PWM) inverter has offered a number of significant advantages over other inverter types for low and medium frequency applications. The generation of an acceptable waveform at higher frequency, however, was limited by the characteristics of available power thyristors and modulator design. With the advent of the fast turn-off thyristo... View full abstract»

    Some control problems in textile processes require or can justify a control computer in lieu of conventional type of control. How then should the typical user approach the selection and implementation of a system. The user must evaluate 1) buying the mini and applying it himself, 2) buying the mini from one vendor and system application from a ``software house,'' and 3) buying the computer and pro...
