Recent Advances in Power Electronics Technology for Industrial and Traction Machine Drives

  title={Recent Advances in Power Electronics Technology for Industrial and Traction Machine Drives},
  author={Thomas M. Jahns and Vladimir Blasko},
This paper presents a review of the state of the art of power electronics technology in both industrial and traction drive application. Key development trends include the dominance of ac adjustable-speed drives in new applications, with the squirrel-cage induction machine as the preferred machine in most cases. Particularly striking has been the rapid ascendance of the insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) as the predominant power switch in both industrial and traction applications ranging… CONTINUE READING
