|ENERGY CONSUMPTION OPTIMIZATION DURING STARTING OF INDUCTION MOTOR|
|BRASLAVSKY I.YA., KOSTYLEV A.V.|
The paper deals with optimisation of energy consumption during start in soft-start systems based on thyristor voltage converter and induction motor (TVC-IM). It is shown that the definition of optimum voltage ramp provides the 10-15% reducing of losses in compare with direct start. The method of voltage ramp optimisation based on genetic algorithm is proposed.
