How to set universal bridge as inverter
38 views (last 30 days)
How do I configure a universal bridge to act as an inverter (DC to AC)?
When I load one from the Simulink library, it appears with 3-phase AC inputs and positive/negative DC outputs. The same thing happens with a two-level converter.
However, many examples have these devices with DC inputs and 3-phase AC outputs. How do I do that? I found an old example online (link) which indicates the bridge had a parameter to set the 3-phase ports as inputs or outputs, but it seems that setting has been depreceated. How do I get around this? I'm sorry if this is a simple question, but I couldn't find the answer.

Hi, Frank You can use universal bridge as a Inverter or PWM rectifier or uncontrolled rectifier For inverter you must select controlled switch such as IGBT or MOSFET, BJT.... For inverter operations, At DC terminal connect a dc source and at ac terminal, connect any load (resistive or other) either in star connection or delta. For inverting you must provide proper gate singnal to controlled switch.
