 Abstract

The static frequency converter (SFC) systems are used as a method of driving large synchronous machines in many power and industrial plants. In this paper, new control algorithms of SFC systems for starting gas turbosets are proposed for a four quadrant operation: start-up at standstill; an acceleration up to the speed of the rated voltage; field weakening to reach the rated speed; synchronization to the main alternating current (AC) source; and dynamic braking to stop safely within the rating of the synchronous machine. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithms are proper and effective.
