cycloconverter

a direct frequency converter NOTE 1 - By creating an alternating voltage from successive waves of the higher frequency a.c. system the cycloconverter provides a lower output frequency. NOTE 2 - By creating an alternating voltage from successive voltage samples of suitable frequency and duration the cycloconverter provides a higher or lower output f

Cycloconverter

A cycloconverter (CCV) or a cycloinverter converts a constant voltage, constant frequency AC waveform to another AC waveform of a lower frequency by synthesizing the output waveform from segments of the AC supply without an intermediate DC link ({harvnb|Dorf|1993|pp=2241–2243} and {harvnb|Lander|1993|p=181}). There are two main types of CCVs, ci
