Inverter Current Sense Module

Current sense module is designed to provide isolated differential analog feedback of inverter phase currents. This is designed using isolation amplifier AMC1302-Q1 and is based on AMC130x Evaluation Module. A picture of this board is shown in Figure 3-24.

AMC1302 measures phase current by measuring voltage drop across a shunt resistor. Since its designed input voltage range is ±50mV, a low value shunt resistor is only needed thereby leading to a lower power dissipation. It has a fixed gain with low drift: 41 ± 0.3%, ±50 ppm/°C, low input offset and drift of, low non-linearity and drift, output bandwidth above 200KHz and a rise time/fall time of sub 2μs. All these features make it suitable for this application.

AMC1302 will require separate power supplies for the high voltage (HOT) and low voltage (COLD) sides. Isolated power supply for the HOT side of AMC1302 for each phase is derived from that phase's high side gate drive's secondary power supply (AH, BH, CH) and drop regulated to 3.3 V. Alternately, using the intermediate 5 V power supply routed to this board via J8, supplementary 5 V to 5 V isolated modules can be mounted on its headers J1, and J2, J4 and J5 and J9 and J10 for phases A, B and C respectively. COLD side power supply is provided from control mother board on a 8x2 header. This module is mounted on headers J5, J8, J11 and J16 of the inverter mother board. Feedback signals are brought out to 8x2 connector J16 of the inverter mother board.
