DC to AC inverter card with IGBTs: Construction and performance
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This paper presents the construction and evaluation of a DC to AC inverter with
IGBT:s and the basic PCD-layout for the single IGBT drivers. The main work
consisted of constructing a PCB-card for controlling a number of IGBT:s, simulate its
properties and test driving it. The schematic of the card is an extension of the
recommended use of the optocoupler HCPL316J with a few modulations made for
the special demands on the Division of Electricity at Uppsala University. Even though,
some basic changes were made in the schematic in this work, the main changes
concerned choice of components due to economy and space and did not change the
electrical properties of the card notably.
Except several electrical properties that will be the main focus in this paper, size and
price are two things that also have been taken under consideration during the work.
In the paper, many parts and components will be described to fully explain the
function of the cards properties. This is for future reference and documentation and
was one of the goals of the project.
