1kW DC-AC Inverter

Once I needed this device for a particular experiment, but I actually built it from sheer curiosity. I also used it as an official project for Electrical Engineering course during my studies at the University of Belgrade. It is still being used a power amplifier or a controllable voltage source during tests and experiments.

Inverter

Description:

 - High efficiency switch-mode power amplifier
 - Utilizes IGBT transistors in "H" bridge topology
 - Powered by a 380 VDC bus, compatible with 240 VAC rated PFC devices
 - Current limited output with 200% surge handling capability
 - Employs a high quality output filter to suppress 50kHz switching frequency
 - Optimized filter characteristics to provide good transient response
