Term:

DC Link

Definition:

A DC link circuit is a method to connect two AC systems that have different voltages and frequencies by way of an intermediate DC stage. After power is converted to DC, it is stored in a capacitor while being converted back to AC.

The DC link capacitor will generally have a high voltage rating (>400 VDC), low dissipation factor and low inductance.
