  • Favourable and economical speed setting results from changing the voltage by means of controlled rectifiers (thyratrons or thyristors).

    6. Direct current machines

  • The electricity switching is done by modern solid state electronics, controlled by a printed circuit board which senses the change in the load, interprets this into control signals to the electronic switching devices, thyristors, which in turn bring in or switch out the auxiliary loads as required.
