In this thesis the design, control, stability, input power quality, and motor drive performance of ac motor drives with front end three phase diode rectifiers utilizing low capacitance dc bus capacitor are investigated. Detailed computer simulations of conventional motor drives with diode rectifier front end utilizing high capacitance dc bus capacitor and the drives with low capacitance dc bus capacitor are conducted and the performances are compared. Performance evaluation of various active control methods found in previous studies aiming to provide the dc bus stability of drives with low capacitance dc bus capacitor are done at various load levels and types. Design recommendations are provided for the drives utilizing low capacitance dc bus capacitor.
