Students should report to the concerned labs as per the time table schedule. Students who turn up late to the labs will in no case be permitted to perform the experiment scheduled for the day. After completion of the experiment, certification of the concerned staff in-charge in the observation book is necessary. Students should bring a note book of about 100 pages and should enter the readings/observations into the note book while performing the experiment. The record of observations along with the detailed experimental procedure of the experiment performed in the immediate last session should be submitted and certified by the staff member in-charge. Not more than three students in a group are permitted to perform the experiment on a setup. The group-wise division made in the beginning should be adhered to, and no mix up of student among different groups will be permitted later. The components required pertaining to the experiment should be collected from stores incharge after duly filling in the requisition form. When the experiment is completed, students should disconnect the setup made by them, and should return all the components/instruments taken for the purpose. Any damage of the equipment or burn-out of components will be viewed seriously either by putting penalty or by dismissing the total group of students from the lab for the semester/year. Students should be present in the labs for the total scheduled duration. Students are required to prepare thoroughly to perform the experiment before coming to Laboratory. Procedure sheets/data sheets provided to the students groups should be maintained neatly and to be returned after the experiment.

POWER ELECTRONICS AND SIMULATION LAB

Objectives: The Power Electronics and Simulation Laboratory is a unique opportunity for you to design and build. Power electronic circuits are the backbone of almost every modern convenience. Automobiles, cell-phones, laptop and desktop computers, television sets, and kitchen appliances, among many other systems, require power electronics circuits to convert electrical energy to a useful form. The creation of a successful power electronic circuit almost always requires more than the application of a set of analytical techniques. The most elegant examples are crafted by engineers who have a rich understanding of how to make trade-offs amongst all the parts of a system, e.g., thermal, mechanical, electrical, and sometimes software. For this reason, we make special efforts to expose you to a huge number of demonstrations developed from a wide range of engineering disciplines, and to provide exciting laboratory experiences that let you try the techniques you learn on practical hardware.

1. STUDY OF CHARACTERISTICS OF SCR, MOSFET AND IGBT


AIM: To study various characteristics of SCR, MOSFET and IGBT. APPARATUS: S.No 1. 2. EQUIPMENT SCR,MOSFET AND IGBT KIT PATCH CARDS Qty 1 1 set

THEORY: Silicon Controlled Rectifier: Silicon Controlled Rectifier is a four-layer three junction p-n-p-n switching device. It has three terminals, Anode, cathode and gate. In normal operation of thyristor anode held with high positive potential with respect to cathode and gate has a small positive with respect to cathode. When Anode is made positive with respect to cathode and switch is open in the gate circuit ,then p-n junction j1 and j3 are forward biased ,where as j2 becomes wider and j1 thinner at j1 and j3. There is no base current in transistor t2 and hence that of t1.under such conditions the SCR is in a state of blocking forward direction. If now gate is made positive w.r.t. cathode or switch is closed , a small gate current will flow through junction j2 as a result anode starts flows if anode current is greater than latching current of SCR.SCR is forward conduction state or simply SCR is closed state. MOSFET: A Power MOSFET has three terminal called drain, source and gate. MOSFET is a voltage controlled device. As its operation depends upon the flow of majority carriers only. MOSFET is uni polar device. The control signal or gate current less than a BJT. This is because of fact that gate circuit impedance in MOSFET is very high of the order of 109 ohm. This larger impedance permits the MOSFET gate be driven directly from microelectronic circuits. Power MOSFETs are now finding increasing applications in low-power high frequency converters. IGBT: IGBT is a new development in the area of Power MOSFET Technology. This device combines into its the advantages of both MOSFET and BJT. So an IGBT has high input impedance like a MOSFET and low-on-state power loss in a BJT.IGBT is also known as metal oxide insulated gate transistor (MOSIGT).

AIM: To Verify the different types of forced commutation circuits by connecting a resistive load. APPARATUS: S.No 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. EQUIPMENT Forced commutation Kit Regulated Power Supply Rheostat CRO Patch cards Qty 1 1 2 1

THEORY: Commutation is the process of turning off the SCR and it normally causes the transfer of current flow to other parts of circuit. Commutation can be divided into a) Natural commutation b) Forced commutation a) Natural commutation: If the source voltage AC the SCR current goes through a natural zero and reverse voltage appears across the SCR. The device is automatically turns off due to the natural behavior of the source voltage. This is known as natural commutation or line commutation. b) Forced commutation: In some SCR circuits the input voltage is DC and the forward current of the SCR is DC and the forward current of the SCR is forced to zero by external or additional circuitry called as commutation circuitry to turn off SCR. This Technique is called forced commutation and normally applied in DC to DC converters .

3. SINGLE PHASE AC VOLTAGE CONTROLLER WITH R & RL LOADS


AIM: To Verify the operation of single phase AC Voltage controller with R and RL Loads and to observe the output and input waveforms APPARATUS: S.No 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7 EQUIPMENT I- Transformer I- AC voltage controller power circuit with firing unit Voltmeters(MI meters) Rheostat Inductive load CRO with (1:10) Probe Patch cards Qty 1 1 2 1 1 1

THEORY: AC voltage controllers are thyristor based devices ,which converts the fixed Ac voltage into variable AC voltage with same frequency .The circuit diagram of Single phase AC voltage controller is shown in figure .It consists of two SCRs connected in anti parallel. The input and output voltage waveforms are also shown. The SCRs are gate controlled and gate pulses are obtained from firing unit. A) For R-Load: For the first half cycle of input voltage waveform SCR T1 conducts and gives controlled output to load. During the other half cycle of input voltage waveform SCR T2 conducts .During the Positive half cycle T1 is triggered at a firing angle of wt= .T1 starts conducting and source voltage is applied to the load from to . At wt= both Vo and Io falls to zero. Just after wt= , T1 is reverse biased and therefore it is turned off by self commutation. During the negative half cycle of T2 is triggered at wt= +, then T2 conducts from wt = +
Vo rms = V ph {[( ) + (1 / 2) sin 2 ] / }1/ 2

17

PowerElectronicsandSimulationLabManual,EEEDepartment,BVRIT

Where Vorms is the theoretical RMS value of the output voltage, Vph is the phase voltage of the input voltage and is the firing angle B) For RL Load: During the first half cycle wt = 0 to SCR T1 is forward biased and is triggered at wt= and output current starts building up through load .At wt=, load and source voltage are zero. But the output current is not zero because of inductive load. At wt=(>), the load current reduces to zero, angle is called extinction angle. After wt = , SCR T1 is reverse biased, but does not turn off because the output current is not zero. At wt=, only when output current is zero T1 turns off. During the negative half cycle SCR T2 is forward biased and is triggered at wt = +. The output current flows through the load in reverse direction. The operation of SCR T2 is similar as that of SCR T1 during the period wt = + to wt = (2-) but in the negative direction. At wt= ( 2-) the SCR t2 is commutated and the next positive half cycle will be regulated by SCR T1. In this way the AC Voltage controller will be useful for regulating the AC voltage.
Vorms = V ph {[( ) + (1 / 2)(sin 2 (1 / 2) sin 2 )] / 2 }1/ 2

Theoretically the value of Extinction angle can be calculated by = (+); Where =tan-1(wL/R)

4. SINGLE PHASE FULL CONTROLLED BRIDGE CONVERTER WITH R & RL LOAD

AIM: To obtain controlled output waveforms of a single phase fully controlled bridge Converter with R and RL Loads. APPARATUS: S.No 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7 8. EQUIPMENT I- Transformer I- fully controlled power circuit with firing unit Voltmeter(MI meter) Voltmeter(MC meter) Rheostat Inductive load CRO with (1:10) Probe Patch cards Qty 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

THEORY: A) For R-Load: A fully controlled bridge converter using four SCRs is shown in the circuit diagram. In the bridge circuit diagonally opposite pair of SCRs are made to conduct and are commutated simultaneously. During the first positive half cycle SCRs T1 and T2 are forward biased and they are triggered simultaneously at wt = then the current flowing through the path A-T1-R-T2-B. During the negative half cycle of the input SCRs T3 and T4 are forward biased and they are triggered at wt= (+) simultaneously then the current flows through B-T3-R-T4-A. Thyristors T1,T2 and T3,T4 are triggered at same firing angle in each positive and negative half cycle of the input voltage respectively.

24

PowerElectronicsandSimulationLabManual,EEEDepartment,BVRIT

When the output voltage falls to zero, the output current also falls to zero because of resistive load .Hence SCRs T1, T2 in positive half cycle and T3,T4 in negative half cycle turn off by natural commutation. The related voltage and current wave forms are shown in the diagram. The theoretical value of the average DC output voltage can be calculated by Voth= (Vm/)(1+cos). Where Voth is the theoretical value of the output voltage Vm is the maximum value of the AC input voltage and is the firing angle. B) For RL-Load: A fully controlled bridge converter using four SCRs is shown in the circuit diagram. To conduct the SCRs simultaneously firing of SCRs T1,T2 in the first half cycle and T3,T4 in the next half cycle is necessary. To ensure this both T1,T2 are fired from the same firing angle. As shown in the diagram when wt=, SCRs T1, T2 are triggered simultaneously. The current flow through A-T1-R-L-T2-B.Supply voltage from this instant appears across output terminals and forces the current through load. At wt=,the output voltage tends to reverse its direction where as the output current tries to flows on the same direction because of inductive load. The output current becomes zero at a angle of wt=. At an angle wt=(+) SCRs T3 ,T4 are triggered, with this negative line voltage reverse biases SCRs T1 and T2 hence the SCRs T1 and T2 are commutated.Now the current flows through the path B-T3-R-L-T4-A.This continue in every half cycle and we get output voltage as shown in waveforms. The theoretical value of the average DC output voltage can be calculated by

V OTH = ( 2V m / )(cos cos )

THEORY: SinglePhasehalfwavecontrolledbridgeconverterwithR&RLloadsareshowninthe diagram. RLoad: During the positive half cycle of AC supply SCR T1 and diode D1 are forward biased. The SCR T1 is triggered at a firing angle t=, the output current flows through hthe path A-T1-R-D1-B. The load current will flow until T1 is commutated by reversal of supply at t=. During The nagative half cycle of AC supply SCR T2 and diode D2 are forward biased. When the SCR T2 is triggered at angle t=(+), the output current would flow through the path B-T2-R-D2-A. This current continues up to t=2, at this angle the SCR T2 is commutated due

PowerElectronicsandSimulationLabManual,EEEDepartment,BVRIT

to reversal of the supply voltage. The theoretical average vale of DC output voltage can be calculated by,

Where VoTHis the theoretical average vale of DC output voltage Vm is the maximum value of AC input voltage and = is the firing angle

RL-Load: The main difference between the operation of the circuit with a complex load, and with a purely resistive load is that at end of each half-cycle of the supply voltage, the current flow is maintained in the load circuit by the inductance of the load. The thyristor that has been conducting, say SCR1, continues to conduct, but current transfers from diode D2 to D1 so that the inductive back emf of the load drives current through the bridge without including the reverse supply voltage. During this part of the cycle, the load current decays exponentially and is unaffected by the supply voltage. When SCR2 is triggered, SCR1 is reverse biased by the supply voltage and turns off. Current now flows from the supply through SCR2 and diode D1 into the load. SCR1 is triggered in the next half-cycle and the sequence is repeated. The theoretical average vale of DC output voltage can be calculated by,

Where extinction angle =+ And can be calculated as

6. SINGLE PHASE CYCLO CONVERTER WITH R & RL LOADS


AIM: To verify the operation of single phase Cyclo Converter with R and RL Loads and to observe the output and input waveforms APPARATUS: S.No 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 7. 8. EQUIPMENT I- Center tapped Transformer I- Cyclo Converter power circuit with firing unit Rheostat Inductive load Voltmeter(MI) CRO with (1:10) Probe Patch cards Qty 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 set

THEORY The circuit diagram of 1- cyclo converter with R and RL load are shown in fig. Construction ally there are four SCRs T1, T2, T3 &T4.Out of them T1, T2 are responsible for generating positive halves forming the positive group. The other two T3, T4 are responsible for negative haves forming negative group. This configuration and waveforms are shown for and 1/3 of the supply frequency. Natural commutation process is used to turn off the SCRs. A) For R-Load: During the half cycle when point A is positive with respect to O, SCR T1 is in conducting mode and is triggered at wt = then current flows through positive point A-T1-load-negative O. In the negative half cycle when B point is positive with respect to the point O,SCR T1 is automatically turned off due to natural commutation and SCR T2 is triggered at wt = +. In this condition the current flows through B-T2-load-O. The flow of
37

PowerElectronicsandSimulationLabManual,EEEDepartment,BVRIT

the current direction is same as in the first case. After two positive half cycles of load voltage and load current SCR T4 is gated at wt=2+ when O is positive with respect to B. In this condition the load current flows through O-load-T4-B.Thus the direction of load current is reversed. In the next half cycle when O is positive with respect to A when wt=3, T4 turnoff due to natural commutation and at wt=3+ T3 is triggered. In this condition the load current flows through O-load-T3-A. The direction of load current is same as previous case. In this manner two negative half cycles of load voltage and load current, equal to the number of two positive half cycles are generated. Now T1 is again triggered to fabricate further two positive half cycles of load voltage and so on. Like this the input frequency 50Hz is reduced to at the output across the load. The input and output waveforms are shown in figure. The frequency of the output voltage can be calculated by: Frequency ( fo )=(Time period)-1 B) For RL-Load:When A is positive with respect to O forward biased SCR T1 is triggered at wt= and the current start to flow through A-T1-R-L-O. Load voltage becomes zero at wt= but load current will not become zero at this angle due to inductance. It becomes zero at wt = which is called extinction angle. So it is naturally commutated at wt=. After half cycle point B positive with respect to point O. Now at angle wt=+. T2 is triggered and the load current takes path from B-T2-R-L_o and its direction is positive as in the previous case. The load current decays zero at wt =+ and SCR T2 is naturally commutated. In the half cycle when O is positive with respect to B point, T4 is triggered instead of T1 at an angle of wt= (2+). Now the load current flows through O-L-R-T4-B but the direction of load current reversed. When the load current becomes zero at an angle wt= (2+) , T4 naturally commutated because the voltage is already reversed at wt = 3.When wt = (3+) and point O, is positive with respect to point A,T3 is triggered then the current flows through O-L-R-T3-A , and the direction of load current is same in previous case. In the next half cycle again T1 will triggered like this we get one cycle of output frequency for two cycles of input frequency, when the frequency division switch is at 2. The waveforms of load voltage and load current are shown in fig. The frequency of load voltage can be calculated by fo=(Time period)-1

THEORY: R-firing Circuit: Uni-Junction Transistor: UJT exhibits negative resistance characteristics; it can be used as relaxation oscillator. The external characteristics RB1 and RB2 are resistances which are small in comparison with internal resistances R1 and R2 of the UJT base. The emitter potential V is varied depending on the charging rate of capacitance C. The charging resistance Rc should be such that the load line intersects the device only in the negative resistance region. is called as the intrinsic standoff ratio. It is defined as

THEORY: The Jones Chopper circuit is another example of class D commutation. In this circuit SCR TM is the main thyristor, where as SCR TA, capacitor C, diode D1 and auto transformer forms the commutating circuit for the main thyristor TM. Therefore the special feature of this circuit is the tapped auto T/F through a portion of which the load current flows L1 and L2 are closely coupled so that the capacitor always gets sufficient energy to turn off the main SCR TM. Let us assume that initially capacitor C is charged to a voltage Edc with the polarity shown SCR TM is triggered current flows through the path CA-TM-L1-D1-CB and capacitor C charges to opposite polarity i.e., plate B positive and plate A negative, however diode D1 prevents further oscillation of the resonating L2C circuit. Hence capacitor C retains its charge until SCR TA is triggered.

Now, SCR TA is triggered current flows through the path CB-TA-TM-CA. Therefore, discharge of capacitor C reverse biases SCR TM and turns it off. The capacitor again charges up with plate A positive and SCR TA turns off because the current through it falls below the holding current value when capacitor C is recharged.

50

PowerElectronicsandSimulationLabManual,EEEDepartment,BVRIT

The cycle repeats when SCR TM is again triggered. The use of autotransformer involves that whenever current is delivered from dc source to the load, a voltage is induced in L1 in the correct polarity for changing the commutating capacitor to a voltage higher than Edc. Thus the autotransformer measurably enhances the reliability of the circuit.

The theoretical average value of the Dc output voltage can be found from

Theory : For large power dc loads, 3-ph ac to dc converter are commonly used. The various types of three phase controlled converter are 3-ph half wave converter, 3-ph half wave converter is rarely used in industry because it introduces de component in the supply circuit. If diodes are replaced by 3-thyristors, a semi converter bride is obtained.
55

PowerElectronicsandSimulationLabManual,EEEDepartment,BVRIT

Free wheeling mode of operation of bridge connected rectifiers can be realized half of its thyristor with diodes. Therefore, circuit of three phase half-controlled bridge converter contains three thyristor in three arms and diodes in the other three arms. For <600 the continuous conduction mode is possible. For firing angles >600 the discontinuous conduction mode occurs. It can be observed from the waveforms that the output voltage becomes zero during a part of the output voltage period, because of the free wheeling action. It is easily noted from the waveforms that the freewheeling period is . Therefore the supply current flows for the period (-) in each half cycle. As increase the duration of the supply current pulse decreases. Therefore, the harmonic content in the source current increases as the firing angle increases. For large firing angle delays, commutation failure may take place due to the limited time available in symmetrical half controlled converter circuit configuration, if the current is assumed to be continuous. This may result in half weaving effect.

The theoretical output voltage can be calculated as For R-load:

Theory: The circuit diagram of 1-ph Parallel Inverter is shown in fig., SCR1 and SCR2 are main thyristors. Supply voltage Vdc appears across the left half of the transformer primary winding OA. Terminal O is positive w.r.t.A. By transformer action terminal B will be at potential of 2Vdc w.r.t A. Thus capacitor C will get charged twice the supply voltage. The load voltage will be positive and will have a magnitude VL . At the end of half period SCR2 is firing , capacitor C will be immediately apply a reverse voltage of 2Vdc across SCR1 and turns off it. Similarly the Vdc applies to right half of the primary winding and capacitor gets charged with 2Vdc in reverse direction. Now the load voltage is negative and hence the current. Since the commutating capacitor is in parallel with SCRs, so it is called parallel inverter.
