    Three-phase inverters have different modes of operation, while the load power factor angle varies over a 3600 range. A method of analysis is described which makes it possible to find these modes of operation. The method is based on the use of Park vectors. These vectors-generally used in the analysis of three-phase ac machines-are composed of the instantaneous values of a three-phase system. Volta... View full abstract»

    Torque pulsations in induction motors would have an average value of zero and therefore are generally neglected by inverter induction machine system designs. A simple equivalent circuit method is presented for estimating the magnitude of torque fluctuations under steady-state operating conditions based on single-phase equivalent circuits. The method indicates that torque fluctuations are due mainl... View full abstract»

    The heating mechanism in a microwave oven results from the interaction of a high-frequency electromagnetic field and the food within it. In most ovens the field is generated by a magnetron which converts dc energy to high-frequency energy at approximately 2450 MHz. This energy is then propagated into the oven chamber which is, in reality, a multimode resonant cavity where the energy is reflected f... View full abstract»

    This paper brings forward and analyzes the practical power-electronic circuits. One of the more interesting configurations described is an inductive element in which, due to constrained reactive power flow, capacitive properties are achieved with regard to the supply network.

    This paper begins with a discussion of the different modes of operation of a zener diode and continues with a study of its behavior during voltage transient conditions. A critique of the accepted electrical analogies of the thermal circuit of a zener diode is conducted, and the analysis of the thermal response of a zener diode to a power pulse is made in a highly simplified thermal model. A brief ... View full abstract»

    An electrothermal model of the behavior of an ac plasma torch is developed using the concept of an "equivalent magnetic field" to account for effects due to the. gas flow field. The thermal characteristics of the model are shown to be in close agreement with empirical results obtained by other workers. The model is of direct and practical importance to the efficient design of electrode configurati... View full abstract»

    It is shown that, in the microwave power spectrum, the field penetration depth in a wet material increases rapidly with temperature. The selectivity of coupling to a wet material is analysed for softwoods. It is shown that the selectivity is both moisture and temperature dependent, the action being self-regulating, except at low moisture contents. The average bulk dielectric constant for softwoods...

    An analog computer simulation is often a useful tool in optimizing the parameters in a complex system such as a practical cycloconverter power system consisting of a three-phase generator, an isolation network, a cycloconverter, and an output filter. The key component in the system is the SCR employed in the cycloconverter. View full abstract»

    Electrical schematic diagrams serve many functions in industry. A continuous process manufacturing plant has unique requirements not always satisfied by existing formats. The varied applications of schematic diagrams are discussed from the stand-point of an industrial user. References to current industry standards are cited and several additional features are explained. A detailed procedure for th... View full abstract»
