Single-phase active rectifier selection for fault tolerant machine

AbdEl-hafez, A.A., Cross, A.M., Forsyth, A.J., Trainer, D.R. and Cullen, J.A (2006). Single-phase active rectifier selection for fault tolerant machine. IN: The 3rd IET international conference on PEMD 2006. IEE conference publication series . London (UK): IET.


A fault tolerant, 5-phase PM generator has been developed for use on the low pressure (LP) shaft of an aircraft gas turbine engine. The machine operates at variable speed and therefore has a variable voltage, variable frequency electrical output (VVVF). The generator is to be used to provide a 350V DC bus for distribution throughout the aircraft, and a study has been carried out that identifies the most suitable AC-DC converter topology for this machine in terms of losses, electrical component ratings, filtering requirements and circuit complexity.
