    In predetermining line current harmonics of controlled AC/DC converters, the effects of commutation and DC ripple must be taken into account frequently, as for example in the case of medium-size DC drive applications. Based on a suitable normalization, the dominant parameters determining the current harmonics are the line and DC side reactances, respectively, and the DC voltage. This forms the bas...

    This article demonstrates the characteristics, physical construction, and application for a newly commercialized high-frequency static induction transistor (SIT). The main features of this device are a lowering in the gate-to-source and gate-to-drain capacitances and an increase in the breakdown voltage and power rating. These enhancements were brought about as a result of the introduction of new ... View full abstract»

    This article proposes a method to eliminate AC harmonic currents by injecting equal-but-opposite harmonic compensating currents. This method is applicable to any type of load considered a harmonic source. This article describes a system involving a hardware interface, a PC, and advanced software to measure, analyze, and report the condition of harmonics on the power system. This system is used to ...

  • Burndown prevention in static power converter equipment

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):46 - 53
    Cited by:  Papers (4)

    Burndown of static power converter equipment is, fortunately, a rare event. When it does occur it is devastating. Danger to personnel and long-term loss of production are the result. Designers and users of the equipment are, understandably, not inclined to publicize their misfortunes. As a result, few technical papers are written on the subject. Over the years the authors have investigated some bu... View full abstract»
