Performance Prediction of D.C. Motor Fed From Half-Controlled Bridge Rectifier
Keywords:DC motor, speed control, 3-phase half-controlled bridge rectifier, discontinuous conduction
Controlled rectification is the process of obtaining a controlled output DC voltage from a constant AC voltage. This can be used in the speed control of the DC motor to provide rapid torque control and a quick starting response. In this work, a three-phase half-controlled bridge rectifier has been used. The average output DC voltage varies smoothly by varying the firing angle (α). Different methods of analysis such as state-space and Fourier-series, are used to obtain the performance of the DC motor fed from the bridge-rectifier supply. However, these methods do not deal with the prediction of the discontinuous conduction phenomenon which occurs during the operation of the DC motor with a variation of delay angle. This paper deals with the prediction of performance characteristics during the operation of the DC motor fed by a 3-phase half-controlled bridge rectifier, including the transient as well as steady-state operation with a variation of delay angle as well as application of load torque at starting.
