Part Number: TMS320F28035
Hi, I see that there are two current sense transformers in the TI design.
Why don't we put the current sense transformer at the AC side? Thus we need only one sense instead of two.
What's the advantage of using 2 current senses and put them at the drain of MOSFET?
This is explained in TI appnote SLUA517. Please review the related section of that appnote.
In reply to Shamim Choudhury:
From the picture below, we can see that no matter it's positive half cycle or negative half cycle, the current will always flow through the AC side.
In our BLPFC code, we will switch to sense Q1 current or Q2 current according to voltage's polarity, but if we put the current sense transformer at the AC side, the code can be simplified and we only need one sensor, right?
And I found that in schematic, Iac is also sensed in AC side, and it's connected to ADCB0, but it's not used in the code.
In reply to Howard Zou:
Yes, you can do that as long as the sensor bandwidth is high enough for sensing the current which has100kHz switching frequency(for this design). The circuit above was added to measure the 60Hz current for input current monitoring. But this does not have high bandwidth to sense the switching current and, hence, it was not used for PFC current control loop.
