Analysis of a Phase-Converter Performance

A. Litchev and K. Yanev (Botswana)


Static phase converter, single-phase load, symmetrical loading, simulation


A phase converter consisting of static reactive elements is described in this paper. It is connected between a three phase voltage supply and a large single-phase load to enable symmetrical loading of the three phases. The contribution of the paper is the method to determine the parameters of the converter elements so that the source phase-currents are of a symmetrical system. Three phase system with converters is simulated and corresponding measurements are provided at inductive or capacitive single-phase loads. The matching between the calculated and experimental results is of high level.
