71 Electric Drive Components

A motor drive consists of a power electronic converter and the associated controller. The power electronic converter is made of solid-state devices and handles the flow of bulk power from the source to the motor input terminals. The controller processes the command input and the feedback information to generate the switching signals for the power converter semiconductor switches. The coordination ofthe components of the motor drive with the source and the motor are shown schematically in Figure 7.1.
