    The age of power semiconductors began when thyristors made their first appearance. They gradually replaced the saturable inductors that were used so far for switched power conversion. The problems related to the nonlinearities of magnetic amplifiers were then easily overcome by naturally commutated thyristor converters. Even so, constructing a line-controlled thyristor converter was still a labori... View full abstract»

    The changes in the market of motor drives over the last few years, especially the wish to complete the portfolio toward the satisfaction of most of the customer needs, have brought a new thrust in the area of drives and have favored the realization of procedures that were known from academic discussion. Under certain conditions, the injection sensorless control schemes that exploit the anisotropy ... View full abstract»

    High-frequency excitation sensorless control methods measure the response of the machine to some form of high-frequency excitation from which the rotor position is estimated. The utilization of these meth ods is feasible in both induction and PMSMs. The design of the machine strongly influences its salient behavior, meaning that not all designs are adequate for their use in sensorless applications...

    This article reviews the nonsinusoidal CPWM and SVPWM techniques and deals with the three possibilities of calculation of pulsewidths after the addition of a zero-sequence signal. A general algorithm is proposed and adapted for dealing with the control of the three-level NPC inverter and also the Z-source converter. Experimental results corroborate the proposed technique.

    A major boost to electrical cars was provided by efficient dc electrical motors, which were primarily introduced by Zenobe Gramme (1826-1901) in France in 1873, and Plante's rechargeable lead acid battery, which was perfected into a successful product in the same country in 1881 by Camille Alphonse Faure (1840-1898). At the first Paris Exposition Internationale d'Electricite in 1881, the electrici... View full abstract»
