Variable Frequency Electrostatic Drive
WARF: P170165US01

Inventors: Daniel Ludois, Baoyun Ge, Aditya Ghule

The Invention
A variable speed drive for an electrostatic motor provides feedback control by conversion of measured current phases provided to the motor into a vector in a rotating rotor framework. This vector is used for evaluating corrective voltages and then reconverted to a non-rotating framework for application to the motor electrodes. Current-source drive circuits provide current stabilized outputs making such sophisticated control tractable.
