Microchip’s Grid-Connected Solar Micro Inverter Reference Design Lowers the Cost and Improves the Efficiency of Solar Power Systems
Free Reference Design and dsPIC33 ‘GS’ Family of Digital Signal Controllers Speed Development of Smart Energy Products for Worldwide Solar Power Market
The solar power industry is evolving to meet the requirements of a changing landscape, as it moves from a cottage industry to mass production. Solar design engineers are being challenged to optimize energy harvesting, reduce installation costs, and improve system reliability and efficiency while standardizing their designs. The Grid-Connected Solar Micro Inverter Reference Design with an advanced, high-efficiency topology design enables them to achieve these goals through digital power conversion techniques, supported by the unique features of Microchip’s dsPIC33F ‘GS’ series of digital-power Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs). The reference design connects to any standard solar panel and converts the panel’s DC output into AC power, which can then be fed into the public power grid. In a real-world application, multiple units can be connected together to achieve the desired power output. This reference design can help the solar power industry to quickly improve its inverter technology, through the use of more flexible and efficient digital power conversion techniques. The transition to digital power enables solar energy conversion to be maximized, while reducing the installation and overall costs of solar systems. Additional features of Microchip’s Grid-Connected Solar Micro Inverter Reference Design include: y Peak efficiency of 95% y Power factor of >0.95 y Output Current THD <3% y Maximum power point tracking of 99.5% y Nighttime power consumption of <1W y System Islanding to detect grid failure y Full Digital Control This reference design works with any photovoltaic (PV) panel that supplies a maximum 220 watts output. It comes in two versions supporting either 110V or 220V power grids. Both versions of this reference design are implemented using a single dsPIC33F ‘GS’ digital-power DSC, which provides full digital control of the power-conversion and system-management functions.

but also in designing appropriate signal conditioning to deal with these issues. visit: http://ww1. For a strain gauge bridge that produces 10 mV at full scale. encompassing measurements of temperature. assume an amplifier has an open-loop gain of 120 dB. For example. To get around this limitation. pressure. or about 11 bits. strain and a variety of other physical phenomenon. they are not widely available and may not be cost effective. humidity. a system designer can select an amplifier with more open-loop gain. A strain gauge uses electrical resistance in order to quantify the amount of strain caused by an external force. an amplifier that has an offset of 1 mV and configuration for a gain of 500 times would produce an error voltage of 0. For a typical amplifier. Several considerations must be made when selecting an amplifier or amplifiers to use in a gain stage. The remaining 66 dB is the open-loop-gain margin that is available to ensure linearity. due to the high amount of gain that may be required. Introduction to Strain Gauges Before jumping into a discussion of amplifiers and signal conditioning circuitry. Perhaps a better solution would be to use an instrumentation amplifier. Another solution is to use multiple-gain stages to achieve the overall desired gain. 125 dB 120 dB 100 dB 75 dB 50 dB 25 dB 54 dB Open Loop Gain Available to Ensure Linearity Open Loop Gain Used For Amplification 10 100 1k 10k 100k 1M Figure 1: Open Loop Gain vs. the amplifier must have enough open-loop gain to provide the required amplification. System designers must be diligent in not only selecting the correct sensor for their application. so 54 dB of the amplifier’s open-loop gain is dedicated to providing gain. For example. the circuitry must provide adequate headroom so that the signal does not saturate the amplifier or the ADC. Offset Voltage and Open-Loop Gain Depending upon the output swing of the bridged gauges and the full-scale input of the ADC. In addition. the open-loop gain remains constant over a certain frequency range and then begins to roll off at 20 dB per decade. Any voltage offset due to the amplifier will be multiplied by the gain.MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY’S microSOLUTIONS Monthly E-newsletter . We will also assume that the bandwidth of the amplifier is sufficient to not be a factor for the frequency of interest.October 2010 Offset Voltage and Open-Loop Gain – Critical Amplifier Parameters for Strain Gauge Applications The world of data acquisition is extremely diverse. This change in resistance can then be measured and the magnitude of the applied force quantified. Such an amplifier can handle a gain of 500.loop gain of 100 dB to 120 dB. the amplifier-offset error could result in a measurement error of 10 percent. Conclusion Strain gauges are found in a wide variety of applications. at a gain of 500.microchip. but would probably limit the overall performance of the system. Frequency 10M For detailed App notes on Strain Gauges. from electronic scales to measuring the torque on a steel beam.microchip. it is imperative to ensure that the amplifier can provide the required gain and still maintain acceptable linearity.com Microcontrollers • Digital Signal Controllers • Analog • Memory 6 . the offset voltage of the amplifier becomes critical.pdf RETURN TO FRONT PAGE www. which is specifically designed to provide high gain and good performance. First.5V at the output of the amplifier. When selecting an amplifier to provide signal conditioning. Although such amplifiers exist. Secondly. the analog signal may need amplification by 500 times or more. such as a traditional two or three amplifier instrumentation topology. By definition. and generally has better voltage offset and drift performance relative to a discrete instrumentation amplifier circuit. A gain of 500 is approximately 54 dB.com/downloads/en/AppNotes/01030a. as mentioned above. This implies that the amplifier is linear to approximately one part in 2000. while still maintaining performance. Each application presents its own design requirements and challenges. “strain” is an alteration due to an external force. Most general-purpose amplifiers have an open. it is worthwhile to quickly review strain gauges. as shown in Figure 1.
