Operation of dc motors powered by photovoltaic converters

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Utilization of solar energy (by means of photovoltaic conversion) for driving electromechanical systems in remote places is becoming nowadays economical justified. Since the output of solar cells is DC voltage, the DC motor is an obvious candidate for these systems. The performance characteristics (operation and control characteristics) of the seperate, series and shunt excitation motors powered by the photovoltaic converter was analysed. These characteristics are different from those of the conventional power supply.
