This paper explores the viability of using direct power converter technology to realize integrated motor drives, at power levels significantly higher than is possible with traditional approaches, fitting within the same space envelope as an equivalent motor. The integrated motor design was targeted at pump and fan applications where the need to install motor drives in a separate location is often an impediment to the replacement of fixed speed motors. In order to achieve this objective the… CONTINUE READING
