My primary goal is designing and constructing a two-level three-phase voltage source inverter being capable of driving a low-power electric motor.
To start with, by giving introduction to some of the most typical appliances of VSIs based on day-to-day instances as well as presenting a new manufacturing method, I mean to put emphasis on the significance of this topic. In addition, a few basic features of inverters will be discussed.
In the second part I intend to expound the details of the „hand-drawn” design of the inverter starting from a rudimentary sketch through defining the needed values of the components to simulated model of the circuit.
Later I shall discuss about Altium Designer, a CAD program, by means of which one could seat a theoretical inverter onto a physical board.
Having had the board manufactured, the soldering process takes place. After that the only task left is to verify the operation of the inverter, which I shall write about in details.
By reading this dissertation, one is to get an insight of the whole designing and implementing process of a widely used electric device and can simultaneously learn about the structure and the operation principle of the inverters.
