Abstract

This paper presents the newly-proposed hybrid resonant commutation bridge leg link (HRCB) snubber circuit which can achieve zero voltage and zero current soft-switching commutation for single-phase and three-phase voltage source-type inverter, along with its unique features and operation principle. The circuit parameter design approach for the HRCB snubber circuit and the determination estimating scheme of the gate pulse timing processing which is more suitable and acceptable for single-phase and space voltage vector modulated three-phase voltage source inverter using the HRCB snubber circuit are described in this paper. In particular the three-phase voltage source soft-switching inverter associated with the proposed HRCB circuits are evaluated and discussed from simulation and experimental viewpoint. The practical effectiveness of the HRCB snubber-assisted three-phase voltage source soft-switching inverter using IGBT power modules which is based on the instantaneous space voltage vector modulation is clarified on the output voltage waveform, actual efficiency and electromagnetic noises in comparison with three-phase voltage source-type conventional hard-switching inverter.
