A dc chopper is a dc-to-dc voltage converter. It is a static switching electrical appliance that in one electrical conversion, changes an input fixed dc voltage to an adjustable dc output voltage without inductive or capacitive intermediate energy storage. The name chopper is connected with the fact that the output voltage is a ‘chopped up’ quasi-rectangular version of the input dc voltage. In chapters 11 and 12, thyristor devices were used in conjunction with an ac supply that forces thyristor turn-off at ac supply current reversal. This form of thyristor natural commutation, which is illustrated in figure 13.1a, is termed line or source commutation.
