VARIABLE-SPEED CONSTANT-FREQUENCY POWER SYSTEMS
VARIABLE-SPEED CONSTANT-FREQUENCY POWER SYSTEMSIn an effort to simplify and improve the production of ac power for aircraft and to get away from the need for hydro-mechanical constant-speed drives, a number of systems have been devised for producing 400-Hz three-phase electric power through electronic circuitry. This has been made possible by the great advances in solid-state technology developed in recent years.Variable-speed constant-frequency generators are typically referred to as VSCF systems. Basically, the systems employ a generator driven at a variable speed, thus producing a variable-frequency output. The rotational speed of the gene…
