A new forced commutated ac/dc converter and control strategy is proposed that is able to draw nearly sinusoidal currents at unity power factor from three-phase power lines. The power factor is controlled by adjusting the relative position of the fundamental component of an optimized PWM type voltage with respect to the supply voltage. Current harmonic distortion is minimized by the use of optimized firing angles for the converter at a frequency where GTO's can be used. This feature makes this… CONTINUE READING
