H-BRIDGE OPERATION Image Courtesy: http://en.org/wiki/H_bridge • An H bridge is an electronic circuit that enables a voltage to be applied across a load in either direction.wikipedia. 3 .

DC MOTOR CONTROL • A motor control circuit: – Provides power to the motor coils in either polarity – Allows the external logic to control direction/speed • There are two basic types of motor controllers – Electromechanical relay based controllers – Semiconductor based controllers (H6 bridges) .

Relay Motor Control Circuit • Advantages – Uses simple. robust electromechanical devices – Can handle high voltages and large currents • Disadvantages – Requires periodic maintenance (cleaning contacts) – Relatively slow due to inertia in mechanical parts – Contact make/break/bounce sparks creating EMI or possible explosion hazard • Example: Used under the hood in cars 7 .

Image Courtesy: http://www.H-Bridge v/s Relays • A "double pole double throw" relay can generally achieve the same electrical functionality as an H-bridge. • H-bridge would be preferable where:– a smaller physical size is needed. – low driving voltage.ecs. – high speed switching.

H-bridge Motor Control Circuit • A DC motor such as our elevator system drive motor requires one H-bridge per motor – The direction is determined by the inputs (1 or 2) – The motor can be turned on and off by a u-controller. • A bipolar stepper motor such as the Mercury Motor requires two H-Bridge circuits per motor – The direction is determined by the ordering of the logic signals to the inputs (1. or 4) – The speed is controlled by the speed of sequencing 9 . 3. 2.

Controlling a PMDC Motor Options • DC operation – Rotational speed of the DC motor is fixed at a given voltage and load • PWM Operation – Average voltage (and rotational speed) can be controlled by opening/closing the switches quickly • Braking – Shorting the terminals or momentarily reversing the drive • Others 10 .
