The effect of space vector modulation algorithm on characteristics of three-phase voltage inverter for drives of optical telescopes

V. Tomasov / A. Usoltsev / P. Zolov / P. Gribanov
Published Online: 2017-10-25 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/bpasts-2017-0068


The effect of space vector modulation algorithm on magnitude of current vector ripples was considered on the mathematical model of a three-level three-phase voltage inverter with symmetric active inductive load. Limitations on the use of such inverters as a power supply for precision drive of optical telescopes were specified.

Keywords: multilevel inverter; space vector modulation; modulation algorithm; current ripples; precision AC drive
