**INVERTERS TOTAL HARMONIC DISTORTION**

THD is used to measure the quality of the AC voltage or current The closer the waveform to sinusoidal, the smaller is the THD Can be applied to voltage or current SEE EXAMPLE 8-3

**INVERTERS Quasi-square wave inverter – Amplitude and harmonic control**

Duration of ZERO output voltage is introduced and it can be shown that: Amplitude of the fundamental component can be controlled (by controlling α) Certain harmonic contents can be eliminated (also by controlling α !) Amplitude and harmonics cannot be controlled independently Cannot be implemented using the half-bridge inverter.

**INVERTERS Pulse Width Modulation**

Is a method used to control the output voltage (amplitude and frequency) of an inverter by modulating the width of the pulses of the output waveform Main advantages of PWM control: Filter requirement is reduced Amplitude and frequency can be control independently Significant reduction in THD of load current (inductive load) Disadvantages of PWM control: More complex control circuit Higher switching losses In SEE4433, two switching scheme for single-phase inverter will be discussed: Bipolar switching scheme Unipolar switching scheme

INVERTERS Harmonics in PWM single-phase inverter

17
INVERTERS Harmonics in PWM single-phase inverter : Bipolar switching scheme If mf is chosen as odd integer with the triangular wave synchronize with the modulating signal, then the PWM output is an odd quarter-wave symmetry. an = 0 and bn exist only for odd Graphically, this can be represented using frequency spectrum diagram : OR using a normalized Fourier coefficients table:

18
**INVERTERS Pulse Width Modulation Unipolar switching scheme**

(vsine > vtri) : Q1 ON, Q4 OFF; va= Vdc (vsine < vtri) : Q1 OFF, Q4 ON; va= 0 (-vsine > vtri) : Q3 ON, Q2 OFF; vb= Vdc (-vsine < vtri) : Q3 OFF, Q2 ON; vb= 0 Vab = va - vb

19
INVERTERS Harmonics in PWM single-phase inverter : Unipolar switching scheme The frequency of the output voltage is doubled. If mf is chosen as even integer then the first cluster of harmonics appear around 2mf (the harmonic at 2mf itself is zero) Graphically, this can be represented using frequency spectrum diagram : Or using a normalized Fourier coefficients table:

**INVERTERS Harmonics in PWM single-phase inverter :**

Comparison between square wave and PWM SQUARE-WAVE Contains harmonics at relatively low frequency: 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, etc. In order to improve the THDV , a low pass filter can be employed filter will be bulky since cutoff frequency is low difficult to remove harmonics since at the same time must ensure fundamental component is not attenuated. PWM Harmonics appear around mf which is further away from fundamental. To improve THDV, filter with higher cutoff can be used smaller in size easier to filter out harmonics. Square wave PWM mf = 21 n
