High Voltage Inverter Design

Along with the wider application of PWM technology used in inverting and the inverse frequency fields, as well as the rapid development of IGBT, MOSFET and other power switching device of such PWM control of high-voltage power supply toward miniaturization, high frequency, intelligent, high efficiency direction.
For this power inverter, a voltage pulse mode PWM controller IC SG3525A, high pressure suspension and drive IR2110, high frequency inverter with power switching device IGBT module program. In addition, the MCU control technology to control this power, so that the whole system is simple, and the realization of the digital intelligent systems.

Design Principles
Suspended high side driver bootstrap principle
IR2110 half-bridge driving circuit is shown in figure 3. In the figure, C1, VD1 were bootstrap capacitor and diode, C2 to VCC filter capacitor. During the shutdown assumed S1, C1 has been charged to a sufficient voltage VC1≈VCC. When HIN is high, VM1 opening, VM2 off, VC1 applied to S1 between the gate and emitter, C1 through VM1, Rg1 and S1 gate capacitance Cgc1 discharge, Cgc1 is charged. At this point VC1 is equivalent to a voltage source. When HIN is low, VM2 opened, VM1 off, S1 gate charge by Rg1, VM2 quick release, S1 is turned off. After a short dead time (td) by, LIN is high, S2 opened, VCC through VD1, S2 to charge C1 to C1 quickly replenish energy. So the cycle repeated.

Bootstrap component design
Bootstrap diode (VD1) and a capacitor (C1) is a rigorous selection and design needs IR2110 in PWM application components should be adjusted so that the circuit according to certain rules in the best condition.
At the same time, the choice of the bootstrap capacitor size should be considered suspended driver widest on-time ton (max) and the narrowest on-time ton (min). Conduction time should neither be too high to effect driving performance narrower pulse width, and cannot be too low to affect the pulse drive requirements. According to the operating frequency of power devices, switching speed, characteristic of the gate turn-on time is selected, it estimates given by debugging.
VD1 mainly used for blocking HVDC trunk, which is to withstand the current gate charge and switching frequency of the product. To reduce the charge loss, should choose the reverse leakage current of the diode.
