IGBT rectifier


Briefly of IGBT rectifier:

Through comprehensive analysis of the equivalent circuit to simplify explain cumbersome IGBT working principle and the role, and noted IGBT characteristics. It can be said, IGBT is a switching device either on or off, it combine both advantages of of MOSFET’s high input impedance and GTR’s low conduction voltage drop.

IGBT Rectifier constitution:

IGBT (insulated gate bipolar transistor), constituted of BJT (bipolar transistor) and MOS (insulated gate field effect transistor) composite full-controlled type voltage-driven power semiconductor devices, with high input impedance MOSFET and GTR’s low on-state voltage drop down. GTR saturation pressure drop, carrier high current density, but the drive current is large; MOSFET drive power is very small, fast switching speed, but large conducting voltage drop, the carrier density is small.
IGBT combines advantages of these two devices, the driving power is small and the saturation while voltage drop low. Very suitable for the DC voltage of 600V and above, variable flow systems such as AC motor, inverter, switching power supply, lighting circuits, traction drive and other fields.
Insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) is the youngest one of high voltage switch family. A 15V high-impedance voltage source facilitate control current flow through the device which can achieve a lower control power to control the high current.

IGBT rectifier principle and action:

Simply to say, IGBT is a switch, either on or off, how to control its on or off, by the gate-source voltage, when the gate-source plus +12V (greater than 6V, generally take 12V to 15V) the IGBT conducting, gate source voltage is not applied or is applied negative pressure, IGBT turn-off, a negative pressure purpose is reliably shut off. No amplified voltage IGBT function, turn on can be seen as the wire, other as open circuit when disconnected.

IGBT rectifier conduct/insulation electricity:

IGBT has three terminals, namely, G, D, S, G and S ends apply voltage, the internal electrons transfer (characteristic of the semiconductor material, which is the reason why use semiconductor material as power electronic switch), originally correspondence of positive and negative ions, semiconductor material in neutral, but applied voltage, electrons under the influence of voltage, accumulation to one side, forming a layer of conductive channel, because the electron is electrically conductive, becomes a conductor . If remove applied both ends voltage of GS, this layer of conductive channel disappear, do not conduct electricity, and become insulators. This is pass of IGBT rectifier.

Electrophoresis power source selection:

Electrophoresis power source is a key equipment for electrophoresis coating machinery, so appropriate selection of electrophoresis power source capacity, can significantly improve the cost efficiency ratio of electrophoretic coating equipment. So in the design of electrophoretic coating machine, electrophoresis power source choice is particularly important. Here is a brief description of electrophoresis power supply selection, hope you can have right choice for electrophoresis rectifier.

Electrophoretic coating is to make the to be coated (workpiece) immersed in an aqueous coating as one electrode (anode or cathode), set up another corresponding electrode (cathode or anode), between the two poles applied a DC electric field, by physical and chemical effects generated by electric field, make the coating particle coated on the workpieces surface uniformly. This is an advanced, modern new painting technologies.

Electrophoresis power source is core for electrophoretic coating equipment:

Based electrophoretic painting working principle, electrophoresis power source is DC power supply, is a key equipment for electrophoretic coating equipment, there is no electrophoresis if there is no DC power supply. If select DC power supply capacity properly, can significantly improve the cost effect. If choose a large electrophoresis power supply capacity, will increase the production cost of equipment, so as to improve equipment installation power, resulting in waste. On the contrary, it makes the entire production line not fully utilized, productivity can not be improved. If need large on-line coating, electrophoresis current is too large, resulting in a DC power supply over current protection, can not be normal production. So in the design work of the electrophoretic coating equipment, electrophoresis power source choice is particularly important.

Electrophoresis power source election based on:

Key features and specifications of the electrophoresis power source need to fully meet the electrophoretic coating process requirements. Based on the following aspects:

1) Inherent characteristics of electrophoretic paint;

a, Electrophoretic paint “breakdown voltage”;
b, Electrophoretic paint “threshold voltage”;
c, Electrophoretic paint, “Coulomb efficiency.”

2) To be coated workpiece surface area (internal and external surface area);
3) Complexity of the workpiece and shape of the workpiece.

In the plating industry application, normally, there are two types of rectifier, which is:

1, Silicon controlled rectifier.
2, High frequency power supply.
While, what is the different between for the 2, sometimes it will cause us confused to choose them.
Here we use a table sheet to find out what exactly difference for them.

For easy to distinguish, we choose same power: 1000A 12V type rectifier. From this, I think you will know which one is what you want.
