Soft Switching with Cascaded Transformers to Drive the PMDC Motor
This paper presents a soft switching technique used along with the series connected transformer to run a PMDC motor. The three level PWM circuits with two active switches and the capacitors are connected in parallel with it. The two switches are reduced in the existing method. Instead of those two switches two capacitors are used to reduce the switching losses. The series resonant converter is used to achieve ZVS turn-on for all power switches and zerocurrent switching for all rectifier diodes. The switching losses of the switches and the reverse recovery loss of the diodes are reduced. The resonant converter has wide range of switching frequency that can be overcome by adopting the PWM method to regulate the output voltage. The series connected transformer is used in the primary and secondary side to balance and share the current which is supplied to the load. The PMDC motor can be used as load. The conventional method does not use any controller to control the resistive load. The speed of the motor can be sensed by using the fuzzy logic controller.The leakage inductance can be reduced by making the frequency constant.
