An Extinction Angle Control of Three Phase Induction Motor Drive for High Power Factor Operation

Authors(2) :-Sakshi Shrivastava, Dr. D. R.Tutakne

To achieve independent control on speed and power factor, six semi controlled switches are used in a three phase AC to AC voltage controller using medium frequency extinction angle control technique. This technique has been realized using AC freewheeling. In industries and power station variable voltage variable frequency drives are widely used for cooling purpose. VVVF drive improves power factor (PF) of earlier used phase angle controlled induction motor drive. Through proposed drive it is expected to provide higher efficiency and higher power factor as compared to phase angle controlled and variable voltage variable frequency drive with much simplicity and much more economical.
