Inverter Stage

 

(also called phase inverter stage or paraphase amplifier stage), a transistor or electron-tube amplifying stage at whose output two voltages of equal amplitude but opposite phase (a phase shift of 180°) are produced. Inverter stages are used predominantly as push-pull power amplifiers of audiofrequency oscillations.

As shown in Figure 4.3, the circuit consists of an input inverter stage, a main voltage conversion stage and an output inverting buffer and power gating transistor.
The zero vectors in the inverter stage are reselected based on SVPWM strategy in [20].
A typical PV grid, tied inverter consists of a string of PV panels tied together to a single inverter stage, is called a string inverter.
The solution proposed in Figure 1 addresses the internal dynamic power consumption problem by inserting a bidirectional delay element at the inverter output to provide time-skewed signals for the next split-input inverter stage. The proposed structure provides break-before-make (BBM) switching with very low component overhead.
However, the delay evaluation of each inverter stage remains a huge problem.
For increasing input voltage, a DC/DC converter, which allows interaction to the AC mains, not only is used for constant output voltage but also is employed in order to perform the MPP, while inverter stage delivers a sinusoidal current to the utility line.
Each stage in turn has two stages namely inverter stage and double inverted stage.
Traditionally, power stages in applications such as solar power inverters, UPS inverter stages and industrial variable frequency drives (VFD) have been built from discrete IGBTs / MOSFETs with dedicated drivers and additional discrete components.
* Replacing any output transformers or series/parallel output inverter stages with a single high-output-voltage inverter supports both low-voltage/high-current and high-voltage / lower-current requirements.
