Induction Machine at Unity Power Factor with Rotating Power Electronic Converter
2012 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
A new configuration for the self-excitation of the induction machine invented by Magnus Lindmark is presented. The power electronic converter using solid state switches is connected to the rotor while the stator is directly connected to the grid. Using appropriate control, the reactive power consumed by the motor can be generated in the rotor resulting in unity power factor operation. The rotor connected power electronic converter is also used for constant speed operation of the induction machine at variable torque.
