Applets for Simulation and Animation



Simulation and Animation of a Three-Phase VIENNA Rectifier 1

All components and blocks with green marks can be mouse-clicked to change simulation parameters. The tables showing the results of the numerical simulation are not finished yet. The applet will be redesigned and improved.

Computers with clock frequencies below 300MHz might have problems to start the simulation immediately.

The VIENNA Rectifier 1 is a unidirectional three-phase three-level PWM AC/DC converter. Main characteristics of the system are sinusoidal current consumption, low blocking voltage stress on the power semiconductors, and low input inductor volume/high power density. A system efficiency of 98% has been verified experimentally for a 10kW/480VAC input, 800VDC output application which is significantly higher than for the six-switch converter. A prototype hardware of the VIENNA Rectifier including full documentation is available from the PES/ETH Zurich (for further information please mail to Johann W. Kolar).
