The lab investigates the operation of a MOSFETs full-bridge, driven by a sinusoidal pulsed width modulation, under different load impedance conditions, and the relationships among physical parameters and operating conditions determining the amplitude of output current and voltage AC components.
After completing this lab, students will be able to:
Given a DC-AC PWM Inverter, with specified modulation and switching PWM signals setup, you will calculate the amplitude of sinusoidal and ripple components of AC current and voltage, with specified units and accuracy, and determine the L-C output filter parameters needed to limit the amplitude of ripple components below given limits, under different switching frequency operating conditions.
Given a DC-AC PWM Inverter, you will simulate its operation under different PWM signals and L-C filter setup, to analyze the amplitude of sinusoidal and ripple components of AC current and voltage, and verify their consistency with theoretical predictions.
Given a real DC-AC PWM Inverter with configurable PWM signals and L-C output filter, you will observe the AC load voltage waveform and measure the amplitude of sinusoidal and ripple components, with specified units and accuracy, under different L-C output filter and PWM signal setups.
