A stepup chopper is used to deliver load voltage of 500 V from a 220 V d.c. source. If the blocking period of the thyristor is 80 μs, the required pulse width is
Given, \/_{s} = 220V, V_{0} = 500V

A 220 V dc shunt motor runs at 1500 rpm at noload. The motor is fed through a typeA chopper. If the armature resistance is 1 Ω and duty cycle of chopper is 60%, the speed of the motor when it draw a current of 20 A would be approximately equal to

V_{0} = αV_{s }= 0.6 x 220  132 V
∴ Back emf

If the motor in the previous problem is driven by an active load at 1710 rpm, then the type of chopper suitable for speed control and its duty cycle for an input voltage of 250 V will be respectively
As the motor is running at 1710 rpm its back emf is
Since therefore current flows in the reverse direction and hence second quadrant chopper will be used with the motor.

A fourquadrant chopper is driving a separately excited dc motor load. The motor parameters are R = 0.1 Ω, L = 10 mH. The supply voltage is 200 V d.c. If the rated current of the motor is 10 A with E_{b} = 150 V and motor is driving the rated torque, then it is operating under

Match List1 (Chopper circuit) with ListII (Characteristic) and select the correct answer using the codes given below the lists:
Codes:
• TypeA chopper is also called “stepdown chopper” as average output voltage V_{0} is always less than the input dc voltage V_{s}.
• TypeB chopper is also called “stepup chopper” as load voltage
which is more than source voltage Vs.
• TypeC chopper configuration is suitable for motoring and degenerative braking of dc motors.
• TypeD chopper characteristic is shown below
Consider the following statements:
1. DC chopper can be used in both dc and ac drives.
2. For fourquadrant operation dual converter is required.
3. Output voltage from a chopper circuit depends both on load current and duty cycle
4. In a stepdown source, current can be discontinuous if duty cycle is low.
Which of the statements given above are correct?
• DC choppers can be used in only dc drives.
• Output voltage from a chopper circuit depends only on duty cycle and is independent of load current.
Hence, statements 1 and 3 are not correct.
For the typeA chopper shown below, the voltage drop across the chopper when it is on is 2 volt. If the duty cycle is 0.4, then the chopper efficiency would be approximately equal to
Given, V_{s} = 230 V
Load resistance, R_{L }= 10Ω α = 0.4
When chopper is ON,
output voltage = (V_{s } 2) volt
When chopper is OFF, output voltage = 0 volt
