Single Phase Inverter

Single Phase Half Bridge Inverter

  • It is also known as "inverter leg".
  • Basic building block for full bridge, three phase and higher order inverters.
  • There are 2 switches by dividing the dc source voltage into two parts with the capacitors.
  • Each capacitor has the same value and has voltage Vdc / 2.
  • The top(S1) and bottom(S2) switch must be complmentary to each other. (When S1 is closed, S2 must be opened and vise versa)

  • Feedback (freewheeling) diodes are required to provide continuity of current for inductive loads.
  • It provides current to flow even swithces are opened.
