While it is true that the transitional phrase "comprising" leaves the claimed subject matter open to additional elements not recited in the claims, to allow the additional elements connected to the winding structure to include additional voltage source converters would render the "requirement that "a single voltage converter [be] connected to the winding structure'  nugatory. Cf., e.g., Mannesmann DeMag Corp. v. Engineered Metal Products co., Inc., 793 F.2d 1279, 1282 (Fed. Cir. 1986) ("The district court correctly observed that the phrase "consisting of" appears in clause (a), not the preamble of the claim, and thus limits only the element set forth in clause (a). The court correctly declined to read this usage of 'consisting of' as excluding all other elements from the claim as a whole"; emphasis added).
