CHAPTER 1Voltage Source Inverter1.1
Background of study
Every day engineers design a products that employ single-phase induction motor speed controlof single phase induction motor is distributed in most motor control application since it is notonly provides variable speed but also reduce energy consumption and audible noise.Switching-mode single-phase DC-AC converters have been widely used in many applicationssuch as adjustable-speed AC motor drive, uninterruptable power supply (UPS), AC applicationrun from an automobile battery and so on. There are many different power circuit topologies andcontrol strategies used in inverter designs.However, the full bridge converter is the most popular circuit used to convert DC to ACespecially in higher power rating. In designing inverter, PWM technique is used as a way todecrease total harmonic distortion in an inverter circuit. Reduced filter requirements to decreaseharmonics and the control of the output voltage amplitude are two advantages of PWM.The H-bridge inverter topology consists of two arms and outputs a single-phase AC outputvoltage, V
to the load. There are four switching devices which in this case are MOSFETs..Each switch is connected in the form of a full bridge. Then a pulse width modulation, PWMsignal from the control circuitry is injected to each of the switching device along with theinverted signal to produce an AC output voltage, V
with variable frequency and amplitude.
