torque capability at low speeds, rotor resistance control is employed in cranes, WardLeonard Ilgener drives, and other intermittent load applications . Major disadvantageis low efficiency due to additional loses in resistor connected in the rotor circuit. Asthe losses mainly take place in the external resistor they do not-heat the motor.However, there are certain applications that require enormous variation of the motor speed . with the increase in availability of high current power electronic devices,smooth and quick variation of external resistance introduce in the rotor circuit of wound rotor induction motor to control speed can be accomplished electronically.Such schemes employing chopper control can be used to obtain a constant speed.Such circuit are widely used in industrial application where the drive operation isintermittent such as hoists ,cranes ,conveyers, lifts and high starting torque are moreimportant with low starting current to avoid voltage dip. The rotor chopper controlledcontains the three phase uncontrolled bridge rectifier and a chopper controlledexternal resistance . The rectifier bridge acts as an electronic frequency changer (EFC), so that the machine will chiefly see the effect of EFC switching at rotor frequency. This system consequently loses the capacity to control rotor currentwaveform by pulse width modulation of electronic switch (ES). The high chopper frequency tend to improvement the performance of wound rotor induction motor drivesystem as, rotor rectified current, rotor phase current, speed smoothing with torque pulsation and ripple of rotor rectified current.The principle operation of high chopper frequency drive for wound rotor induction motor with a resistively loaded rotor chopper is detailed in the consequentchapters.
