A cascade converter is a type of motor-generator which was patented in 1902 by J. L. la Cour and O. S. Bragstad.
When the machine is running, half the power is transmitted mechanically through the shaft while the other half is transmitted electrically.
The advantage of this arrangement is that the machine can be smaller than a conventional motor-generator of the same power.
