  • Dynamic Average Modelling of Rectifier Loads and AC-DC Converters for Power System Applications

    This chapter presents an overview of dynamic average-modelling of front-end diode rectifier loads and pulse width modulation (PWM) AC-DC converter systems. It also presents a detailed analysis with an overview of all possible modes of operation from open-circuit to short-circuit conditions. The chapter discusses the basic approaches for developing the AVMs. Three selected average-value models (AVMs) are utilized in extracting steady-state operational characteristics of the rectifier system, followed by a comparative analysis of the AVM dynamic orders. The chapter compares the small-signal input/output impedance characteristics predicted by different models. It examines the transient performance of the AVMs for various operating conditions including light and heavy loading conditions, discontinuous and continuous modes, as well as balanced and unbalanced AC side. Finally, the generalization of the analyses is considered for high-pulse-count converters using an example six-phase topology.

  • Practical Characteristics of LEDs

    The first thing to know about light emitting diodes (LEDs), and all diodes, is that they are current devices, not voltage devices. Power supplies for LEDs are typically designed to drive them with a constant current. For easy estimates, the forward voltage of a diode is a constant. Forward voltage depends on the temperature of the die, and this depends on how big the package is. The same diode in a bigger package will stay cooler, and thus have a higher forward voltage. Rectifier diodes and LEDs fall into the unintentional category. If they conduct in the reverse direction, there is an excellent chance that they have broken. Now with rectifier diodes, there is an easy solution. This chapter talks about quite a number of parameters for LEDs, as well as their temperature variations. Realizing how much the variation in some of these parameters influences performance, manufacturers offer binning.

  • Multipulse SCR Rectifiers

    This chapter provides an overview of six‐pulse SCR rectifier, which is the building block for the multipulse SCR rectifiers, followed by an analysis of 12‐, 18‐, and 24‐pulse rectifiers. It investigates the line current THD and input power factor of these rectifiers, and summarises the results in a graphic format. The line current THD of the 12‐pulse SCR rectifier normally does not satisfy the harmonic guidelines set by IEEE Standard 519‐2014. The chapter presents the multipulse diode rectifiers that are normally used in voltage source inverter (VSI) fed drives while the multipulse SCR rectifiers to be can be used in current source inverter (CSI) based drives. The SCR rectifier provides an adjustable DC current for the CSI which converts the DC current to a three‐phase pulse‐width‐modulated (PWM) AC current with variable magnitude and frequency. With the presence of the line inductance, the commutation of the SCR devices will not complete instantly.

  • Multipulse Diode Rectifiers

    This chapter focuses on the separate‐type multipulse rectifiers, where each of its six‐pulse rectifiers feeds a separate DC load. The main feature of the multipulse rectifier lies in its ability to reduce the line current harmonic distortion. This is achieved by the phase‐shifting transformer, through which some of the low‐order harmonic currents generated by the six‐pulse rectifiers are canceled in the transformer primary winding. The multipulse rectifier has a number of other features. It normally does not require any load commutated (LC) filters or power factor compensators, which leads to the elimination of possible LC resonances. The multipulse diode rectifiers can be classified into two types: series‐type multipulse rectifiers, where all the six‐pulse rectifiers are connected in series on their DC side and separate‐type multipulse rectifiers, where each of the six‐pulse rectifiers feeds a separate DC load.
