Three-Phase Inverters

Six-step inverter
•consists of three single-phase inverter switches each connected to one of the three load terminals •Application is speed control of induction motors, where the output frequency is varied.

Operation •Each switches is coordinated so that one switch operates at each 60⁰ angle •Switches S1 & S2 is close and is open when other switch is closed. 0.VBC and VCA are +Vdc. if not short circuit will across the source. & -Vdc . •Must not close at the same time. •Resulting VA0.VB0 and VC0 are +Vdc •Line to line output voltages VAB.

The switching sequence .

the voltage across each phase is line to neutral voltage .•3 phase load connected in wye connection.

13… .11.5.7.•Output for ungrounded why-connected load has following coefficients n=1.

•Output frequency can be controlled by switching frequency •Magnitude of output voltage depends on value of dc voltage •In six-step inverter. to control output voltage. dc input must be adjusted .

PWM three phase inverters •Advantages is reduced need for filter for harmonic reduction •Able to control amplitude of fundamental frequency •Amplitudes of the triangular wave (carrier) and sine wave (modulating) are compared to obtain PWM waveform. other is open •Each pair requires separate sinusoidal reference wave . •One switch in pair is closed.


The Fourier coefficients for line-to-line voltages for three phase switching is .
