Power electronic controllers in the form of thyristors have been implemented
to control the addition of inductive and capacitive components on the
system. An MSP430 has been used to determine the gating signals required
by the thyristors for the appropriate output voltage. An AND671GST LCD
has been used to display required information. Application specific
IC’s have been implemented for measuring current and voltage levels.
Solutions based on phase control and PWM (pulse width modulation) will
be investigated. For further information regarding The solutions please
