TIDA-00951: TIDA-00951 Operation method inquiry

Part Number: TIDA-00951

TIDA-00951 There are some questions about the design board.
The HV side FET is described as full bridge driven.
However, there is no working waveform for the FET when in charge mode.
Is it Phase Shift?
Or is it traditional Hard Switching?
And does the LV side FET operate with synchronous rectification?

Here is the Center tap question for Trans.
In the circuit diagram, it is connected to the center tap of Trans primary side and the capacitor center. What does it do?
Or what are the benefits?

Here are some questions about Boost Mode Working: Cold Start.
Can I remove the cold start circuit if the HV capacitor is always maintaining a voltage above 350V?

Thank you for your help.

  • Hi, Bea

    Sorry, I am on business travel now.

    I will check your questions this night, thanks.

    I will wait..

    Thank you.

  • Hi, Bae Su-min

    I do not know what does you mean by "no working waveform". Where you tested, and which signal? 

    I think you can do some simulation with this topology, and You can refer the design guide to study the circuits operation process. http://www.ti.com/lit/ug/tidud04/tidud04.pdf

    at last, I think you can remove the cold start circuits.

    Hello

    Thank you for yor reply.
    I think that my inquiry was not enough detail.

    Please kindly check again my further question.


    1) From TIDA-00951, I cannot find waveform about FET operation on HV Side.
    Could I get 'waveform data'of Q7~Q9 operation from Figure 3 with Charge mode.
    if you do not have this waveform data, could you explain about "FET operation on HV Side" to me?


    2) Another question is about the role of Center Tap of T1 from Figure 3.
    TIDA-00951 states Full Bridge method.
    I am wondering the reason why Center Tap of T1 is connected to C1, C2 center...


    Thank you for your prompt reply in advance.

    Hi,

    For the questions:

    1) The TIDA-00951 in Charger mode operates as hard switched full-bridge. Firgure 17 in the design guide shows this operation.

    2) The center tap is provided for applications that need a +200V and -200V rail (like a half-bridge inverter). This also allows with the proper transformer modification a +400 and -400v rail for 230V output half-bridge inverter applications.

    Best Regards,

    Ram

    Thank you for your kind reply.

    I have a additional question about your reply No.2).

    I understand that TIDA-00951 in Charger mode operates as full-bridg.
    Then, This means that there is no situation to operate as Half-bridge in TIDA-00951 and Could I understand that Center tap does not need to be connected accordingly?
    otherwise, Is there a certain section to operate as Half-bridge?

    Thank you!

  • In reply to Bae Su-min:

    Hi,

    Yes. You only need to connect the center tap, If you want to connect a half-bridge inverter at the output of this board. Otherwise you can disconnect the center tap.

    Best Regards,

    Ram

    Thank you for your replay~

    Have a nice week.

  • In reply to Bae Su-min:

    Hi Ram,

    I was wondering how ZVS is achieved if the charger is in hard switched? If you could elaborate on buck mode, it will be very helpful. Are there any related design notes? How is the current controlled? Is it peak current? Please elaborate.

    Thank you 

  • In reply to Madhu Joshi:

    Hi, Bae

    I have checked this with Ram, for the charge mode, its operation is simply full bridge PWM;

    High voltage side is hardswitch, so it is non ZVS; the low voltage side, its works in SR mode,  it is ZVS.

    Hope it solved your question. thanks.
