Cost optimized, < 1% accurate current sensing and protection for 3-phase inverter reference design
This reference design demonstrates a cost optimized three-phase inverter leg (low-side shunt) current sensing solution with high accuracy and faster response for sensorless 2-shunt or 3-shunt field oriented control (FOC). This reference design demonstrates inverter leg current sensing with full swing response settling time close to 1-µs and accuracy error less than 1%. The design also shows very good noise rejection even with high power IGBTs switching nearby. The design implements overcurrent protection fully in hardware with less than 1.5-µs total response time.
- Current sensing with < 1.25 µs settling time and < 1% calibrated accuracy enabling accurate current sensing
- Overcurrent protection fully implemented in hardware with fast response time < 1.5 µs
- Positive and negative overcurrent protection in all the three inverter legs by using only two comparators
- Low cost and accurate current sensing for sensorless FOC with dual and triple shunt topologies to minimize torque ripple and audible noise in motor drives
A fully assembled board has been developed for testing and performance validation only, and is not available for sale.
