**Introduction Chopper is a static device.**

Power Electronics Introduction Chopper is a static device. A variable dc voltage is obtained from a constant dc voltage source. Also known as dc-to-dc converter. Widely used for motor control. Also used in regenerative braking. Thyristor converter offers greater efficiency, faster response, lower maintenance, smaller size and smooth control. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 2 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

**When chopper is ON, supply is connected across load. **

Power Electronics When chopper is ON, supply is connected across load. Current flows from supply to load. When chopper is OFF, load current continues to flow in the same direction through FWD due to energy stored in inductor ‘L’. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 19 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

20
Power Electronics Load current can be continuous or discontinuous depending on the values of ‘L’ and duty cycle ‘d’ For a continuous current operation, load current varies between two limits Imax and Imin When current becomes equal to Imax the chopper is turned-off and it is turned-on when current reduces to Imin.

**When the chopper is ON, the inductor L is connected across the supply. **

Power Electronics Step-up chopper is used to obtain a load voltage higher than the input voltage V. The values of L and C are chosen depending upon the requirement of output voltage and current. When the chopper is ON, the inductor L is connected across the supply. The inductor current ‘I’ rises and the inductor stores energy during the ON time of the chopper, tON. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 41 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

42
**Therefore voltage across load is given by**

Power Electronics When the chopper is off, the inductor current I is forced to flow through the diode D and load for a period, tOFF. The current tends to decrease resulting in reversing the polarity of induced EMF in L. Therefore voltage across load is given by Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 42 Prof. T.K.

**Class C Chopper is a combination of Class A and Class B Choppers. **

Power Electronics Class C Chopper is a combination of Class A and Class B Choppers. For first quadrant operation, CH1 is ON or D2 conducts. For second quadrant operation, CH2 is ON or D1 conducts. When CH1 is ON, the load current is positive. The output voltage is equal to ‘V’ & the load receives power from the source. When CH1 is turned OFF, energy stored in inductance L forces current to flow through the diode D2 and the output voltage is zero. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 97 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

98
**Current continues to flow in positive direction. **

Power Electronics Current continues to flow in positive direction. When CH2 is triggered, the voltage E forces current to flow in opposite direction through L and CH2 . The output voltage is zero. On turning OFF CH2 , the energy stored in the inductance drives current through diode D1 and the supply Output voltage is V, the input current becomes negative and power flows from load to source. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 98 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

**Class D is a two quadrant chopper. **

Power Electronics Class D is a two quadrant chopper. When both CH1 and CH2 are triggered simultaneously, the output voltage vO = V and output current flows through the load. When CH1 and CH2 are turned OFF, the load current continues to flow in the same direction through load, D1 and D2 , due to the energy stored in the inductor L. Output voltage vO = - V .

103
**Average output voltage becomes negative if tON < tOFF . **

**Class E is a four quadrant chopper **

Power Electronics Class E is a four quadrant chopper When CH1 and CH4 are triggered, output current iO flows in positive direction through CH1 and CH4, and with output voltage vO = V. This gives the first quadrant operation. When both CH1 and CH4 are OFF, the energy stored in the inductor L drives iO through D2 and D3 in the same direction, but output voltage vO = -V. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 108 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

109
**Therefore the chopper operates in the fourth quadrant.**

Power Electronics Therefore the chopper operates in the fourth quadrant. When CH2 and CH3 are triggered, the load current iO flows in opposite direction & output voltage vO = -V. Since both iO and vO are negative, the chopper operates in third quadrant. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 109 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

110
Power Electronics When both CH2 and CH3 are OFF, the load current iO continues to flow in the same direction D1 and D4 and the output voltage vO = V. Therefore the chopper operates in second quadrant as vO is positive but iO is negative. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 110 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

**Effect Of Source & Load Inductance**

Power Electronics Effect Of Source & Load Inductance The source inductance should be as small as possible to limit the transient voltage. Also source inductance may cause commutation problem for the chopper. Usually an input filter is used to overcome the problem of source inductance. Power Electronics by Prof. M.

**Thyristor T2 is now fired to commutate thyristor T1. **

Power Electronics Thyristor T2 is now fired to commutate thyristor T1. When T2 is ON capacitor voltage reverse biases T1 and turns if off. The capacitor discharges through the load from –V to 0. Discharge time is known as circuit turn-off time. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 127 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

**This time is called the recharging time and is given by**

Power Electronics Capacitor recharges back to the supply voltage (with plate ‘a’ positive). This time is called the recharging time and is given by The total time required for the capacitor to discharge and recharge is called the commutation time and it is given by Power Electronics by Prof. M.

**FWD starts conducting and the load current decays. **

Power Electronics FWD starts conducting and the load current decays. The energy stored in source inductance LS is transferred to capacitor. Hence capacitor charges to a voltage higher than supply voltage, T2 naturally turns off. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 132 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

**Capacitor starts discharging in reverse direction. **

Power Electronics Capacitor has been overcharged i.e. its voltage is above supply voltage. Capacitor starts discharging in reverse direction. Hence capacitor current becomes negative. The capacitor discharges through LS, VS, FWD, D1 and L. When this current reduces to zero D1 will stop conducting and the capacitor voltage will be same as the supply voltage Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 135 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

136
Power Electronics Mode-5 Operation Both thyristors are off and the load current flows through the FWD. This mode will end once thyristor T1 is fired. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 136 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

Power Electronics Disadvantages A starting circuit is required and the starting circuit should be such that it triggers thyristor T2 first. Load voltage jumps to almost twice the supply voltage when the commutation is initiated. The discharging and charging time of commutation capacitor are dependent on the load current and this limits high frequency operation, especially at low load current. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 139 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT

**Chopper cannot be tested without connecting load. **

Power Electronics Chopper cannot be tested without connecting load. Thyristor T1 has to carry load current as well as resonant current resulting in increasing its peak current rating. Power Electronics by Prof. M. Madhusudhan Rao 140 Prof. T.K. Anantha Kumar, E&E Dept., MSRIT
