Abstract

In recent years, a resonant snubber to minimize switching power losses and EMI noises have attracted special interest for the voltage-fed soft switching sinewave PWM inverters and active rectifiers. The authors have discussed the performance evaluations on lower noise and high efficiency for two switch auxiliary resonant DC link snubber assisted three-phase voltage-fed soft switching PWM inverter. It was proved that cost effective three phase soft switching inverter treated here is able to improve both efficiency and EMI noise. However, some practical problems to be improved have recognized for the soft-switching three phase PWM inverter treated here from a practical point of view. This three phase soft-switching inverter with two switch type auxiliary resonant DClink snubber has significant disadvantages of DC busline link voltage reduction for the existence of the zero voltage mode transition period as well as the larger size and physical volume of electrolytic capacitor incorporated into the resonant. DC link snubber. The additional technology to minimize the busline DC link zero voltage period in order to overcome the practical problems mentioned above is newly proposed in this paper. Prom experimental and simulation viewpoints, the modified version of this soft-switching inverter is discussed and evaluated for the DC busline voltage utilization factor as compared with the previously developed one.
