IEEE Distinguished Lecture : “Soft Switching Inverter for Renewable Energy” by Prof Mark Dehong Xu

Soft switching has been successfully applied in switching power supplies, inverters for induction heating etc. However, applications of soft switching to three-phase inverters such as UPS, fast EV chargers, PVjWind power inverter etc. are not so common up to now. In this presentation a novel Space Vector Modulation known as Zero-Voltage Switching SVM (ZVS-SVM) is introduced. It can realize zero voltage switching for all switching including both inverter bridges switches and the added auxiliary switch for Three-Phase inverters. Experiment results of a 30kW ZVS inverter are introduced.

This event is jointly organised by the Power Electronics Chapter and the Professional Activities Affinity Group.

This is a free event but please send an email to Dr Xibo Yuan, Senior Lecturer at the University of Bristol, to register.
