Abstract
DC motor is used in many industrial applications. Because it has versatile control characteristics. With the increasing use of power semiconductor units, the speed control of the DC motor is increasingly getting sophisticated and precise. The DC motor can control by various methods, which is as field control, armature voltage control, armature resistance control. The speed of the DC motor is controlled by controlling the armature voltage. Armature voltage is controlled using different single-phase AC/DC converter. Half converter, semi converter, full converter, and dual converter are some of the thyristor-based circuits, which are used for speed control of DC motor. But using power electronics devices causes power factor and total harmonics distortion problem. Different types of Rectifier circuit with filter capacitor is used to reduce the problem of power factor and total harmonics distortion like Conventional single-phase diode rectifier with filter capacitor, single-phase diode rectifier with LC filter, single-phase diode rectifier circuit with series input resonant filter, Single phase diode rectifier circuit with improved parallel input resonant filter. In this paper, we do a comparative analysis of controlling DC motor with improved PF and THD.
