Abstract

This article focuses on power electronic multi-pulse 12-, 24- and 36-impulse rectifiers based on multi-winding rectifier transformers. The effectiveness of voltage processing with different variants of supply voltage sources is discussed and arguments are formulated for limiting oneself to 24-pulse processing, which is used in the latest technological solutions of modern aviation technology. The main purpose of this article is to conduct a study (analysis, mathematical models, simulations) of selected multi-pulse rectifiers in the context of testing their properties in relation to the impact on the electrified power supply network. The secondary objective of the article is to assess the possibility of using Matlab/Simulink to analyze the work of rectifier circuits implemented in aircraft networks compliant with the more/all electric aircraft (MEA/AEA) concept. The simulation tests included designing a typical auto-transformer rectifier unit (ATRU) system in the Simulink program and generating output voltage waveforms in this program in the absence of damage to the rectifier elements. In the final part of this work, based on a critical analysis of the literature on the subject of the study, simulations were made of exemplary rectifiers in the Matlab/Simulink programming environment along with their brief analysis. Practical conclusions resulting from the implementation of the MEA/AEA concept in modern aviation were formulated. View Full-Text
