Infineon Microcontroller Based Frequency Converter Design


Article Preview

In this paper, we implement a real-time detection and automatic control design for AC-DC-AC converter based on XC878M microcontroller unit (MCU). By generating the sinusoidal pulse width modulation (SPWM) signal directly using the microcontroller, the hardware circuit is simplified and the power factor and efficiency of the system is greatly improved. Further, frequency conversion techniques are applied into our design. After the high frequency modulation and compressed the high frequency harmonics, the proposed design can produce high-quality voltage waveform, thereby decreasing the loss of the converter.
