The cycloconverter is one of the most popular drivers of Linear Synchronous Motor (LSM) for the magnetic levitated transportation system. The conventional cycloconverter has two drawbacks, which are the extremely poor input power factor and the waveform distortion of input current. Reactive power compensated cycloconverter (RPCC) has been developed to solve these problems. This paper discusses the principle, configuration and characteristics of RPCC and describes the experimental results of the test track.
