Direct torque controlled induction motor drives used multi-pulse AC-DC converter

Rohollah Abdollahi


This paper presents the design and analysis of a polygon connected autotransformer based 44-pulse ac-dc converter which supplies direct torque controlled induction motor drives (DTCIMD’s) in order to have better power quality conditions at the point of common coupling. The proposed converter output voltage is accomplished via two paralleled 22-pulse ac-dc converters. An autotransformer is designed to supply the rectifiers. The design procedure of magnetics is in a way such that makes it suitable for retrofit applications where a six-pulse diode bridge rectifier is being utilized. The aforementioned structure improves power quality criteria at ac mains and makes them consistent with the IEEE-519 standard requirements for varying loads. Furthermore, near unity power factor is obtained for a wide range of DTCIMD operation. A comparison is made between 6-pulse and proposed converters from the view point of power quality indices. Results show that input current total harmonic distortion (THD) is less than 3% for the proposed topology at variable loads.
