electronic component and appliance are not left behind.
So as the need for generating electricity through
inverter increase, there are various designs, which
have been carried out in the past to achieve this aim.
But one thing that needs to be stressed here is that the
previous designs have some shortcoming that led to
design of this proect whose aim is to eliminate these
shortcomings. The past !previous" designs will be

produce an up counting se)uence which is displayed by
a 8 G segment H>$ display. This timer se)uence
determines the supply and charging time of the
batteries. The switching unit performs automatic
switching between the batteries at ensures that each
battery supply the inverter for batteries. The switching
unit performs automatic switching between the
batteries it ensures that each battery supply the
inverter for appro#imately ;. minutes and switch over
for ;. min charge to replace it lost energy. The
switching operation is been controlled by the signal
from the timer unit via the logic unit. This, every ;.

2.8 The electromechanical version of the switching device
includes two stationary contacts and a spring supported
moving contact. The spring holds the movable contact
against one of the stationary contacts and an
electromagnet pulls the movable contact to the
opposite stationary contact. The current in the
electromagnet is interrupted by the action of the switch
so that the switch continually switching rapidly bac4

This type of electromechanical inverter switch called a
vibrator or a buCCer was once used in vacuum tube
automobile radios !refine". & similar mechanism has
been used in door bells, buCCers and tattoo guns. &s
they have become available, transistors and various
other types of semiconductor switches have been
incorporated into inverter circuit designs.

The switch in the simplest inverter described above
produces a s)uare voltage waveforms as opposed to
the sinusoidal waveform that is the usual waveform of
an &% power supply that is the usual waveform of an &%
power supply. ?sing +ourier analysis, periodic
waveforms are represented as the sum of an infinite
series of sine waves. The sine wave that has the same
fre)uency as the original waveform is called the
fundamental component.
The other sine waves called harmonies, that are
included in the series have fre)uencies that are integral
multiples of the fundamental fre)uency.
The )uality of the inverter output waveform can be
e#pressed by using the +ourier analysis data to
calculate the total harmonic distortion !T/$". The total
harmonic distortion is the s)uare root of the sum of the
s)uares of the harmonic voltages divided by the
fundamental voltage.

The )uality of the output waveform that is needed from

2.: MORE ADVANCE INVERTER DESIGNS
(ntroduce what you want to discuss

+ig. 2.:, /7bridge inverter circuit with transformer
switches and anti parallel diodes.
There are many different power circuit topologies and
control strategies used in inverter designs. $ifferent
design approaches are used to address various issues
that may be more or less important depending on the
way that the inverter is intended to be used.
The issue of waveform )uality can be addressed on
many ways. %apacitors and inductors can be used to
filter the waveform. (f the design include the
transformer, filtering can be applied to the primary or
secondary side of the transformer or to both sides. How
pass filters are applied to allow the fundamental
component of the waveform to pass to the output while
limiting the passage of the harmonic components. (f the
inverter is designed to provide power at a fi#ed
fre)uency, a resonant filter can be used. +or an
adustable fre)uency inverter, the filter must be turned
to a fre)uency that is above the ma#imum fundamental
fre)uency.
Since most loads contain inductance, feedbac4 rectifier
a parallel diodes are often connected across each
semiconductor switch to provide a path to the pea4
inductive load current when the semiconductor is
turned off. The antiparallel diodes are somewhat similar
to the free wheeling diodes used in &%F$% converter
circuits.
+ourier analysis reveals that a waveform, li4e a s)uare
wave that is antisymetrical about the 1:. degree point
contain only odd harmonics, the 9
rd
, '
th
, 8
th
etc.
*aveforms that have steps of certain widths and
heights eliminate or cancel additional harmonics. +or
e#ample, by inserting a Cero voltage step between the
positive and negative sections of the s)uare wave, all
of the harmonics that are divisible by three can be
eliminated.
That leaves only the '
th
, 8
th
, 11
th
, 19
th
etc. the re)uired
width of the steps is one third of the period for each of
the positive and negative voltage steps and one switch
of the period for each of the Cero voltage steps.
%hanging the s)uare wave as described above is an
e#ample of pulse width modulation !D*A". Aodulating
or regulating the width of a s)uare wave pulse is often
used as a method of regulating or adusting inverters
output voltage. *hen voltage control is not re)uired, a
fi#ed pulse width can be selected to reduce or eliminate
selected harmonics. /armonic elimination techni)ues
are generally applied to the lowest harmonics filtering
is more effective at high fre)uencies than at how
fre)uencies. Aultiple pulse width or carrier based
!D*A" control scheme-s produce waveforms that are
composed of many narrow pulses. The fre)uency
represented by the number of narrow pulses per
second is called the switching fre)uency or carrier
fre)uency. These control scheme-s are often used in
variable fre)uency motor control inverters because
they allow a wide range of output voltage and
fre)uency adustment while also improving the )uality
of the waveform.
Aultilevel inverters provide another approach to
harmonic cancellation. Aultilevel inverters provide an
output waveform that e#hibits multiple steps at several
voltage levels. +or e#ample it is possible to produce a
more sinusoidal wave by having split rail direct current
inputs at two voltages, or positive and negative inputs
with a central ground. By connecting the inverter
output terminals in se)uence between the positive rail
and ground, the positive rail and negative rail, the
ground rail and the negative, then both to the ground
rail, a stepped waveform is generated at the inverter
output. This is an e#ample of three level inverter1 the
two voltages are ground.

Three phase inverter are used for variable fre)uency
drive applications and for high power applications such
as /=$% power transmission. & basic three phase
inverter as show in +ig 2.3 consists of three single
phase inverter switches each connected to one of the
three load terminals. +or the most basic control
scheme, the operation of the three witches is
coordinated so that one switch operates at each 5.
degree point f the fundamental output waveform. This
creates a line to line output wave form that has siCe
steps. The si# step waveform has a Cero voltage step
between the positive and negative sections of the
s)uare wave such that the harmonics that are multiples
of three are eliminated as described above. *hen
carrier based D*A techni)ues are applied to si# step
waveforms, the basic overall shape, or envelope, of the
waveform is retained so that the third harmonic and its
multiples are cancelled.

A !onolit"ic integrate! circ"it (also %nown as IC microcirc"it

(consisting !ainl# of se!iconductor devices as well as passive
co!ponents) t"at "as $een !anufactured in t"e surface of a t"in su$strate
of se!iconductor !aterial.
A "#$rid integrated circuit is a !iniaturi6ed electronic circuit constructed
of individual se!iconductor devices as well as passive co!ponents $onded

Integrated circuits were !ade possi$le $# e8peri!ental discoveries w"ic"

vacuu! tu$es and $# !id-;'t"-centur# tec"nolog# advance!ents in

tin# transistors into a s!all c"ip was an enor!ous i!prove!ent over t"e
!anual asse!$l# of circuits using discrete electronic co!ponents. T"e
integrated circuitRs !ass production capa$ilit# relia$ilit# and $uilding-
$loc% approac" to circuit design ensured t"e rapid adoption of standardi6ed
ICs in place of designs using discrete transistors.
T"ere are two !ain advantages of ICs over discrete circuitsS cost and
perfor!ance. Cost is low $ecause t"e c"ips wit" all t"eir co!ponents are

Advances in integrated circuits
A!ong t"e !ost advanced integrated circuits are t"e !icroprocessors or
TcoresT w"ic" control ever#t"ing fro! co!puters to cellular p"ones to

International Tec"nolog# Road!ap for Se!iconductors (ITRS).
C%assification
Integrated circuits can $e classified into analog digital and !i8ed
signal ($ot" analog and digital on t"e sa!e c"ip).
Digital integrated circuits can contain an#t"ing fro! a few t"ousand to
!illions of logic gates flip-flops !ultiple8ers and ot"er circuits in
a few s.uare !illi!eters. T"e s!all si6e of t"ese circuits allows "ig" speed

Analog ICs suc" as sensors power !anage!ent circuits and operational

Analog ICs ease t"e $urden on circuit designers $# "aving e8pertl# designed

functions suc" as AFD converters and DFA converters. Suc" circuits

T"e earliest integrated circuits were pac%aged in cera!ic flat pac%s w"ic"

leading to pin grid arra# (1AA) and leadless c"ip carrier (/CC)

!ounted on it. In its construction t"e vero $oard was cleaned wit" an iron
$rus" to re!ove dirt fro! its surface w"ic" !ig"t affect soldering .ualit#.
Su$se.uentl# following t"e circuit diagra! t"e co!ponents were !ounted
on t"e $oard one after t"e ot"er and soldered. T"e IC was not directl#
soldered to t"e $oard $ut was !ounted on an IC soc%et. T"is is to prevent
"eat da!age and for ease of replace!ent. 3nits li%e t"e power switc"
displa# etc were connected to t"e $oard via fle8i$le wires.
In t"e soldering process care was ta%en to ensure t"at t"e soldered 7oints
"ave good !ec"anical and electrical contact. Also great care was ta%en to
ensure t"at t"e co!ponents were not da!age fro! e8cess "eat fro! t"e
soldering iron. T"e following procedures were followed in t"e soldering
process.
- A <'( pencil t#pe soldering iron was used.
- A good .ualit# rosin-core solder was used.
- +or t"e iron to properl# conduct "eat t"e soldering tip was well tinned
(coated wit" a tin la#er of solder). To %eep t"e tip clean it was wiped
fro! ti!e to ti!e on a da!p spurge or clot".
- All co!ponent lead and copper fort pads were cleaned and free of
o8idation at t"e ti!e of soldering $# lig"tl# $rus"ing t"e! wit" steel
wool.
- ("ile soldering and unsoldering a safet# glass was used to avoid e#e
in7ur# due to fl#ing particle of "ot solder.
- T"e top of t"e soldering iron was fir!l# was placed against t"e wire lead
and copper pad to "eat t"e connection to $e soldered.
Before soldering se!iconductor co!ponents suc" as transistors diode etc.
t"e lead near se!i conductor was "eld wit" needle nose pliers or twee6ers to
prevent t"e "eat fro! t"e soldering iron fro! getting to into t"e co!ponent.
- Soldering flu8 is applied to t"e connection as it is $een "eated. Care was
ta%en not to appl# solder directl# onto t"e top of t"e iron.
- ,noug" solder was applied to for! a tin s!oot" coating in all !etal part
in t"e connection.
- T"e "eat was allowed on t"e connection for an I2STA2T after
application of t"e solder "as $een stopped. T"is is to aid t"e flow of
solder and insure against Z1oor5 or Zcooled5 solder connections.
- Care was ta%en not tot !ove t"e soldered connection until t"e solder "as
cooled (solidified) t"us reducing t"e possi$ilities of i!proper soldering.
- ,8cess lead lengt" were cut as close as possi$le to t"e soldering
connections.
)*+ ENC,OSURE CONSTRUCTION
T"e enclosure was practicall# !ade fro! a s"eet of t"in !etal. 3sing a
!eter rule and pencil t"e re.uire s"ape and si6e for t"e enclosure was
!ar%ed. T"e parts were t"en 7oined toget"er wit" special plastic glue to
for! t"e s"ape s"own $elow.

3sing a "and drill wit" tin# drilling $it screw "oles and ot"er relevant
ventilation "oles were perfor!ed.
+actors t"at were considered $efore c"oosing a specific s"ape and si6e
include a large enoug" space inside t"e enclosure to prevent over
co!pression of t"e circuit $oard.
)*- ASSEM.,ING
0avng constructed t"e circuit $oard and t"e enclosure and $eing satisfied
wit" t"e functionalit# of t"e constructed circuit t"e pro7ect was asse!$led.
Asse!$ling was si!pl# fi8ing t"e circuit $oard fir!l# in t"e enclosure and
screwing t"at t"ere was no conducting o$7ect li%e lead $all nail etc inside
t"e enclosure and also t"at enclosure was not to s!all for t"e circuit $oard
since t"is !ig"t cause co!pression w"ic" !ig"t result to $rea%age or t"e
9ero $oard trac%.
1roper connections were !ade $etween t"e units. T"is was a $eat
co!plicated and de!and great care and attention since t"e use of a lot of
connecting wires were involved.
<.& TESTING AND RESU,T
Testing of t"e pro7ect proved satisfactoril#. T"e power cord was connected
to t"e !ains and t"e power switc" toggled on. 3sing a !ulti!eter t"e
voltage levels at various points were ta%ing to ensure t"at t"e correct a!ount
of power was reac"ing all t"e unit. ,8pected voltages were
9cc of all Ics[[[[[[[C9
A2D of all Ics[[[[[[..'9 etc.
T"e power suppl# output wavefor! o$served wit" an oscilloscope is s"own
$elow.

2e8t resistance test was carried out. T"is was to ensure t"e t"ere was no
open or close circuit wit"in t"e $oard strips or t"e connecting wires.
