Control in Power Electronics and Electrical Drives contains the proceedings of the Second International Federation of Automatic Control Symposium held in Düsseldorf, Germany, on October 3-5, 1977. The symposium provided a forum for discussing the effects of converter control on the design of electrical machines. Comprised of 102 chapters, this book begins by focusing on control systems employing electronic power converters, along with converter circuits and converter control procedures. The next section deals with the behavior of inverter-fed electrical machines and requirements imposed by converter operation. Topics covered include the status of power thyristors and rectifiers; the dynamic performance of converter-fed synchronous motors; and open loop control of a linear vernier reluctance motor in a stepping mode. Subsequent sections explore converter-fed alternating current and direct current drives; applications of controlled industrial drives; and solid-state energy conversion. A number of methods for analyzing power electronic circuits are discussed and illustrated. This monograph will be of interest to electronics and electrical engineers.
