## Single Phase Half-Bridge Inverter Problem

The given data -

Resistive Load = R = 3 Ω

DC Input Voltage = Edc = 50 V

To find -

i] RMS output voltage at the fundamental frequency = $E_{1 \ rms}$ = ?

ii] The output power = $P_o$ = ?

iii] The average current of each thyristor = $I_{T\ (av)}$ = ?

The peak current of each thyristor = $I_{T\ (peak)}$ = ?

iv] The peak reverse blocking voltage of each thyristor = $E_{BR}$ = ?

Formulae -

i] RMS output voltage at the fundamental frequency - $$E_{1 \ rms} = \frac{2E_{dc}}{\sqrt 2 π}$$

ii] The output power - $$P_o = \frac{E_o^2}{R}$$

Where,

$E_o = RMS\ output\ voltage = \frac {E_{dc}}{2}$

iii] The average and peak current of each thyristor -

$$The\ Average\ Current = I_{T\ (av)} = \frac {E_{dc}}{4R}$$

$$The\ Peak\ Current = I_{T\ (peak)} = \frac{E_{dc}\over 2}{R}$$

iv] The peak reverse blocking voltage of each thyristor - $$E_{BR} = 2 \times \frac {E_{dc}}{2} = E_{dc}$$

Solution -

i] RMS output voltage at the fundamental frequency:

$$E_{1 \ rms} = \frac{2E_{dc}}{\sqrt 2 π} = \frac{2 \times 50}{\sqrt 2 \times π} = 22.5\ V$$

ii] The output power:

First, calculate

$$E_o = RMS\ output\ voltage = \frac {E_{dc}}{2} = \frac{50}{2} = 25\ V$$

Therefore,

$$P_o = \frac{E_o^2}{R} = \frac{25^2}{3} = 208.34\ W$$

iii] The average and peak current of each thyristor:

$$The\ Average\ Current = I_{T\ (av)} = \frac {E_{dc}}{4R} = \frac{50}{4 \times 3} = 4.167\ Amp$$

$$The\ Peak\ Current = I_{T\ (peak)} = \frac{E_{dc}\over 2}{R} = \frac{50\over 2}{3} = 8.34\ Amp$$

iv] The peak reverse blocking voltage of each thyristor:

$$E_{BR} = 2 \times \frac {E_{dc}}{2} = E_{dc} = 50\ V$$

Final Summarization of the above Findings -

i] RMS output voltage at the fundamental frequency = $E_{1 \ rms}$ = 22.5 V

ii] The output power = $P_o$ = 208.34 W

iii] The average current of each thyristor = $I_{T\ (av)}$ = 4.167 Amp

The peak current of each thyristor = $I_{T\ (peak)}$ = 8.34 Amp

iv] The peak reverse blocking voltage of each thyristor = $E_{BR}$ = 50 V
