Designing High Fidelity Isolated Power Inverter Interfaces

This webcast explores system design issues in three-phase inverter systems. The challenges associated with isolated gate drive and current/voltage sensing are discussed along with system design aspects such as bias supplies and overcurrent protection. Practical circuit implementations are described along with experimental investigations on the impact of parameters such as gate driver timing on system performance of a motor control system.
