Abstract : Results of a study of static electric power inversion techniques using semiconductor devices are given, including recommendations that bridge-type inverters, employing impulse commutation, sinusoidal wave form synthesis using stepped-wave techniques, and output voltage control within the inverter by use of pulse-width methods, are most suitable for use in the design of a family of inverters in the power range from 10 KW to 600 KW. Additional requirements of transient stability, frequency control, reliability, electromagnetic compatibility, and system costs are considered. Comparative analysis of various solid state devices and inverter techniques, and their advantages and disadvantages are discussed. Present trends in the development of static power inverter equipment are considered and future trends are anticipated, where possible. Recommendations are given to indicate areas where additional investigation is needed. (Author)
