Evaluation of sparse PWM converter for switched reluctance generator

Singh, N. and Fletcher, J.E. and Finney, S.J. and Grant, D.M. and Williams, B.W. (2005) Evaluation of sparse PWM converter for switched reluctance generator. In: Sixth International Conference on Power Electronics and Drive Systems, 2005-11-28 - 2005-12-01.

The paper investigates the operation of a novel power converter for the switched reluctance generator. The sparse PWM converters reduce switch count and eliminate the front-end current smoothing inductor which leads to a low cost and small converter. The performance of the converter is investigated and simulation results are presented
