CONVERTER CHOKESConverter Choke


Converter chokes are used within the passenger cars power supply converters. These chokes are mainly utilized in four different operations:


CONVERTER INPUT CHOKES(LINE CHOKES)


Converter input chokes are used to suppress the harmonics generated by the converter. They also protect the semiconductors the rectifier circuit.


BATTERY CHARGER CHOKES


Battery charger chokes are used to dampen the ripple on the charger output voltage, which is used to charge the batteries for supplying the passenger car during power cuts.


DC LINK CHOKES


DC Link chokes are used to dampen the ripple on the DC Link voltage.


CONVERTER OUTPUT CHOKES(SINUS FILTERS)


Converter output chokes are used to dampen the PWM ripple of the output inverter. They also protect the semiconductors in the inverter circuit.
