The modern world hungers for electricity. Traditionally, this hunger was sated with predominantly constant-speed-regulated, synchronous generators. However, new demands require the stable, quick, and efficient delivery and control offered by variable-speed generators.
Surveying all of the technologies used to satisfy the world's demand for o
