Applying Variable Speed Drives With Static Frequency Converters To Turbomachinery

Lucien||Grgic Terens
Today, the variable speed drive with AC motor and static frequency converter is an outstanding solution to cont rol the speed of turbomachines in the power range up to 100 MW and more. A wide selection of variable speed drives, both mechanical and elec trical, is available. These systems are listed and discussed. The aspects that are essential for their application are dealt with. A further issue is the integration of the variable speed drive into its application environment. From the itemized

Some practical cases concerning design and operation characteristics of the mechanical system are subject to reflection. 35
