Frequency Converters Market: Introduction

Frequency converters, also known as frequency changers, are electronic or electromechanical gadgets that convert AC (alternating current) of one frequency to AC of another frequency. Frequency converters are power transformation gadgets. Conventionally, these gadgets were electromechanical machines and were known as motor generator sets. As a rule, these devices comprise of a rectifier (to produce direct current), which is then modified to deliver AC of required frequency. A battery may be added to the DC hardware to enhance the converter's ride-through of brief blackouts in information control. There are three basic components of any frequency converter, namely rectifier, inverter, and DC-link.

In order to convert stable power frequency to variable frequency, frequency converters work on a basic principle, which can be defined in two steps. In the first one, an AC power source is rectified into DC voltage, and in the second step, this DC voltage is chopped into AC voltage in order to convert it into the required frequency.

Frequency converters offer several advantages, such as low maintenance costs, controlled ramp-up speed, limited torque, easy start, etc. Several benefits enable their adoption in several applications, such as temperature control of any process, pressure and flow control, capability of being good sensors, etc.

Another application is in the aviation and aircraft businesses. Regularly planes utilize 400 Hz control so a 50 Hz or 60 Hz to 400 Hz frequency converters are required for use in the ground control unit used to control the plane while it is on the ground. Carriers may likewise use the converters to give in-air divider current to travelers for use with tablets and so forth. In renewable vitality frameworks, frequency converters are a basic segment of double bolstered acceptance generators as utilized as a part of present day multi-megawatt class wind turbines.

Frequency converters are ordinarily used to control the speed of engines, fundamentally pumps and fans. The most requesting application ranges are found on modern preparing lines, where the control precision necessities can be high. This is especially valid in the atomic power and weapons industry, where these gadgets control the operation of refinement axes.
