A Review of AC - AC Voltage and Frequency Controller

Authors(2) :-D. Velmurugan, Dr. Naveen Raman

With energy savings as main objective, controllers are designed using power electronic devices that provide variable ac output from fixed ac input sources. Nowadays applications stating from domestic to industries uses power electronic controllers for producing variable voltage, variable frequency to satisfy the load demand as well as to obtain optimum energy savings. In this paper, AC AC voltage regulator or controller and cycloconverter circuits are studied using MATLAB simulation software to produce variable ac.
