Electrical Drive Systems

Definition: The electrical drive system is defined as the system which is use for controlling the speed, torque and direction of an electrical motor. Each electrical drive system is different from other electrical drive systems, but there are some common features associated with all electrical drive systems. Electrical Drive Systems The figure shown below represents the…

Electric Traction Drives

Definition: The drive which uses the electric power for moving forward, such type of drive is called an electric traction drive. One of the major application of an electric drive is to transport men and materials from one place to another. The traction drives are mainly classified into two types, i.e., the single phase AC traction…

Closed Loop Control of Drives

In closed loop system, the output of the system is feedback to the input. The closed loop system controls the electrical drive, and the system is self-adjusted. Feedback loops in an electrical drive may be provided to satisfy the following requirements. Enhancement of speed of torque To improve steady-state accuracy. Protection The main parts of…

DC Motor Drives

Definition: The DC motor drive is a type of amplifier or power modulator that integrate between the controller and a DC motor. It takes the low current and then converts it into a high current which is appropriate for the motor. The DC motor drive also provides the high current torque, 400 % more than…

Battery Powered Vehicles

Definition: The vehicles which get powered through a self-controlled battery for converting fuel into electricity, such type of vehicles are called battery powered vehicles or electrical vehicles. The lead acid battery is mostly used for powering the vehicles because of their low cost. The various types of DC and induction motors are used in battery…

Load Equalisation in Electrical Drives

Definition: Load equalisation is the process of smoothing the fluctuating load. The fluctuate load draws heavy current from the supply during the peak interval and also cause a large voltage drop in the system due to which the equipment may get damage. In load equalisation, the energy is stored at light load, and this energy…
