This paper presents the mathematical derivation of the currents flowing in a de motor when supplied by a thyristor power supply. It restricts consideration to the case of discontinuous current flow, i.e. discrete current pulses, with either a three phase half-wave or a three phase full-wave converter. It further presents a computer program which determines these currents as a function of the motor parameters, at selectable motor running speeds.
