PWM or Switched Mode Rectifiers


Pulse width modulation or so-called switched mode rectifiers such as the boost rectifier and the regenerative rectifier and the multilevel regenerative rectifiers are presented and analyzed in this chapter. The state-of the-art control techniques used by these rectifiers such as maximum current control, hysteresis control, and sinusoidal pulse width modulation are presented as well. Solved problems and simulation results are included to help the reader understand the theory presented in this chapter.
