Part Number: UC3843A

Dear Sir 

hi this Basavesh BR

we design 24V 54watt AC To DC converter using UC3843.
but not working properly please help me solve this problem 

  • Hello Basavesh,

    There are a lot of reasons for a PWM controller to not work propoerly, have you tried to check the pin to pin waveform of the controller and compare it with the datasheet parameters?
    May you please share the overall spec and the line and load conditions when you see this behaviour?
    Does it exibit the same behaviour at all line and load conditions?
    Is the controller not starting up or entering a fault? what does the power stage look like, would you be open to share your schematic?

    Regards,
    Sonal

    Thank you for your valuable Reply....
    i will check as per datasheet but basing voltage showing 8V
    but controller require above 10V for operating
  • In reply to Basavesh B R:

    The Start-up threshold of UCC3843A is 8.4V typical. You will require atleast this much voltage to ensure startup. One way of chcking if the PWM has started is to check that the drive pin(OUTPUT) generating pulses.

    yeah i checked now showing 10.5V basing voltage out put voltage...
    but mosfet getting heat...

    Hi Basavesh,

    Please share your schematic, this will help me review your power stage design.

    What is the voltage rating of your primary FET, how does the SW waveform look?

    Regards,

    Sonal

    Hello Basavesh,

    It has been some days were you able to capture these waveforms?
