Abstract

     The development of technology in power semiconductor devices leads to the increasing use of a static switching device in wound rotor induction motor (WRIM) controller systems. Supply voltage and current always contain harmonics and in the same circumstances unbalanced supply voltages. The low power quality has detrimental effects on the motor characteristics in the form of derating the output power and increasing torque pulsation. The static rotor resistance chopper controller (SRRCC) and slip power recovery drive (SPRD) are used in many applications. This survey presents a comprehensive review of many studies of SRRCC and SPRD operating with distorted and unbalanced supply, and their effects on the wound rotor induction motor performance. Starting from various techniques of control methodologies of SRRCC, SPRD, harmonic analysis, unbalanced supply and distorted unbalance supply simultaneously. Contributions from various researchers in this field have been presented, reviewed, and assessed.
