A generalized analytical model is presented for thyristor-controlled variable inductors. The proposed model can represent the performance of various types of thyristor phase-controlled variable inductors (VI's), e.g., conventional, UM-concept, magnetically coupled reactor, and asymmetrically firing control types, by introducing two parameters: m andδ. By means of numerical computation using this model, the characteristics of variable inductors can be clarified, and their characteristics can be compared with ease. This analytical model is very useful for deciding circuit configuration and design.
