CONVERSION EQUIPMENT206. The conversion of alternating current to direct current is usually effected with a motor-generator set, a synchronous converter, an electronic rectifier, a contact (barrier-layer) rectifier, or solid-state semiconductor rectifiers.207. A motor-generator set consists of a motor mechanically coupled to and driving one or more generators. The motor is usually alternating-current and is mounted on the same bedplate and on the same shaft with the generator or generators which it drives. A motor-generator set can be employed to convert electrical energy from one voltage or frequency to another voltage or frequency, to convert alternating current to direct current, or to convert direct curre…
