ac dc power supply

Reactive power is a result of current and voltage waveforms not being "in phase" with each other. If the reactive power is required by the load, the load is considered "lagging" (current lags voltage; load appears as an inductive component). If the load can be over-excited, it can produce reactive power and is referred to as "leading" (current leads voltage;, load appears as a capacitive component).

Most DC systems in vehicles and UPSs are connected to ground (earth) on one pole. Automobiles in the U.S. ground negative. This eliminates high static floating voltages and minimizes arcing when device insulation begins to fail. It also allows a device to be fed with a single wire and use the chassis as a return.

Since an electric substation control system is considered an emergency system, it is not grounded. It is better to burn up a device than to trip off a circuit and disable ...

Basic knowledge of power inverter
Power inverter mainly adopts the PWM at present, controller switch to DC rapidly in a pulse-period to ensure that the DC integral value is equal to the sampling values of AC sine wave at the same time. After filtered, more than 96% sine wave output can be realized. Pulse inverter is self-excited inverter that output voltage is pulse modulation. This kind of power inverter reduces the voltage and electric current pulse number by increasin ...

Since there are several electrical standards: by frequency 50/60Hz, by low voltage (residential / commercial) use: 120-220-240-277-380-480V. and we could unify between European/American/Asian use changing all to DC 12Volts, which is used by cars. DC Green technologies are now present in power sources (solar panels) and most loads could be served in DC (led illumination, TVs and all electronic appliances) using USB c ...

Q: I have a situation where our UPS servicing data center rack systems are failing repetitively after replacements.

We know our mains transformer is undersized in terms of load capacity and under voltages are measured going to the input of the UPS that is providing back up power to data center in a rack mount. However these voltages measured were 110VAC and still within operating range. In another facility with the same rack systems, colleagues are saying they're seeing "brown out ...

Neutral is the normal return path for current coming out of the live terminal and through the load. Ground is a safety wire that (all being well) should not be carrying any current. It is connected to the chassis etc. If some goes wrong inside the box and a live wire touches the chassis, the ground connection should prevent the metal parts going to high voltage. In this pathological case, the ground wire will carry a (possibility very large) current, at least until the fuse blows or the circu ...

One of the advantages of using a DC test voltage is that the leakage current trip can be set to a much lower value than that of an AC test voltage. This would allow a manufacturer to filter those products that have marginal insulation, which would have been passed by an AC tester.

When using a dc hipot tester, the capacitors in the circuit could be highly charged and, therefore, a safe-discharge device or setup is needed. However, it is a good practice to always ensure that a prod ...

For a transformer to work, the current in one coil has to somehow make current flow in the other coil and the circuit it's connected to. A DC current in one coil will make a magnetic field on the other coil, but a magnetic field by itself won't drive any electrons around. A CHANGING magnetic field, however, does create an electric force which will accelerate those electrons in the other coil into carrying a current. This process is described by Faraday's law of induction. You get a changing f ...

MOTOR is defined as "a machine giving, imparting, or producing motion". This means the output of an electric motor is a mechanical force; the input is voltage.

GENERATOR is defined as "a machine for converting mechanical energy into electrical energy". This means the input of a generator is a mechanical force; the output is voltage.

The purpose of a commutator is to provide the switching action in the current waveform to allow the magnetic field developed by the rotor ...

When we say control the first thing comes in theory or practical is that it should have a low value of noise which is apparently achieved by DC.
- 24V is far safer limit than compared to higher values 115V AC.
- 24V DC is more resistant to control circuit drop out caused by high inrush using contactors used for starting motors or any capacitive load as well.
- Modern day electronics can now be operated at lesser voltage, Optos, relays, improving efficiency of the system and l ...

There are several reasons you see inverters in such heavy use in renewable energy. You have the problem of converting from one voltage level at the source, to a substantially different voltage. And the source voltage can vary substantially. To do this, you must employ some type of alternating-or-pulsed input to a conversion system. And, that system must include an inductive device. I.e., a coil or transformer. A dc up-conversion would be almost impossible otherwise, and a dc down-conversion w ...

After China has built the first all DC city, during the half century that we in the U.S. are weaning ourselves from 60 Hz AC, 60Hz transformers will not be constructed by present customs. Rather, they will be switching power emulations. These emulation transformers are completely within the present state of the switching art. The technology will not use much clocked pulse width modulation, though clocked 100% duty cycle, may prevail over hysteretic l ...

Conversion of DC drive to AC drive is complex. Most important are the changes, impact or improvement in your power system (motor sizing, power factor, power quality, harmonics, efficiency, operation/maintenance, controls, etc.).

Many of the considerations for comparing AC and DC drive systems can be covered if you have a procedure for making an economic evaluation between the two technologies. Areas of comparison include: system purchase price, spare parts costs, motor cooling fac ...

The most basic difference is the power source. AC motors are powered from alternating current (AC) while DC motors are powered from direct current (DC), such as batteries, DC power supplies or an AC-to-DC power converter. DC wound field motors are constructed with brushes and a commutator, which add to the maintenance, limit the speed and usually reduce the life expectancy of brushed DC motors. AC induction motors do not use brushes; they are very rugged and have long life expectancies. The f ...

You already know from your engineering that higher voltages results to less operational losses for the same amount of power delivered. The bulk capacity of 3000MW has a great influence on the investment costs obviously, that determines the voltage level and the required number of parallel circuit. The need for higher voltage DC levels has become more feasible for bulk power projects (such as this one) especially when the transmission line is more than 1000 km long. So on the economics, invest ...

Wound rotor motor is not the best option for SAG mills because the slip rings always are a problem even with liquid resistors. Best option is synchronous motor in combination with variable frequency drive. However if you already have the wound rotor motor the ERS operation is simple.

Instead of dissipating the rotor power in a resistor we can use it to power a 3 phase inverter that returns the power to the AC power source. The line commutated ...

For Metro DC traction power systems, the commonly adopted nominal voltages are 750V DC and 1500V DC. The DC substations are normally fed from a High Voltage (HV) 11 kV or 33 kV 3-phase AC network in the UK. To convert the 3-phase AC voltage to DC voltage, a modern DC substation employs a 3-winding transformer (delta-delta-star) to feed a 12-pulse rectifier (consisting of 2 x 6-pulse diode bridges, the outputs of which are connected in either parallel or series to form a 12-pulse rectifier). N ...

For the Logic Power supply I want to convert AC 120/240V to 24/15/5/3.3 VDC. I am wondering what is the best topology to do this. Currently I am using a power transformer to convert down to 24vac rectify and tap off of that. Is there a way to reduce/remove the power transformer? Should I change to a flyback style of converter? I need about 5-10 Watts DC power total.

If you do not care about power factor (means no need of power factor correction), then indeed a possible solution is ...
