Abstract

Cycloconverters are AC to AC converters which do not require a DC link. They convert a fixed frequency, fixed voltage supply to a variable frequency, variable voltage output which can be used to control the speed of an AC motor. This paper describes the design and development of a single-phase six-pulse cycloconverter to demonstrate its application in the control of speed and shaft torque of a single phase induction motor. The performance of the cycloconverter induction motor drive system has been tested by investigating the torque speed characteristics. Harmonic analysis of the load voltage waveform has also been considered.
