Three Phase Dual Converters
 For four quadrant operation in many industrial variable speed dc drives , 3 phase dual converters are used.  Used for applications up to 2 mega watt output power level.  Dual converter consists of two 3 phase full converters which are connected in parallel & in opposite directions across a common load.

 There are two different modes of operation.  Circulating current free (non circulating) mode of operation  Circulating current mode of operation

EE2301- POWERELECTRONICS

Non Circulating Current Mode Of Operation
 In this mode of operation only one converter is switched on at a time  When the converter 1 is switched on, For E1 < 900 the converter 1 operates in the Rectification mode Vdc is positive, Idc is positive and hence the average load power Pdc is positive.  Power flows from ac source to the load

EE2301- POWERELECTRONICS

 When the converter 1 is on, For E1 > 900 the converter 1 operates in the Inversion mode Vdc is negative, Idc is positive and the average load power Pdc is negative.  Power flows from load circuit to ac source.

EE2301- POWERELECTRONICS

 When the converter 2 is switched on, For E2 < 900 the converter 2 operates in the Rectification mode Vdc is negative, Idc is negative and the average load power Pdc is positive.  The output load voltage & load current reverse when converter 2 is on.  Power flows from ac source to the load

EE2301- POWERELECTRONICS

 When the converter 2 is switched on, For E2 > 900 the converter 2 operates in the Inversion mode Vdc is positive, Idc is negative and the average load power Pdc is negative.  Power flows from load to the ac source.  Energy is supplied from the load circuit to the ac supply.

EE2301- POWERELECTRONICS

Circulating Current Mode Of Operation
 Both the converters are switched on at the same time.  One converter operates in the rectification mode while the other operates in the inversion mode.  Trigger angles E1 & E2 are adjusted such that (E1 + E2) = 1800

EE2301- POWERELECTRONICS

When E1 < 900, converter 1 operates as a controlled rectifier. E2 is made greater than 900 and converter 2 operates as an Inverter.  Vdc is positive & Idc is positive and Pdc is positive.

EE2301- POWERELECTRONICS

 When E2 < 900, converter 2 operates as a controlled rectifier. E1 is made greater than 900 and converter 1 operates as an Inverter.  Vdc is negative & Idc is negative and Pdc is positive.
