The Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) shown in the figure below is switched to provide a 50Hz, square wave ac output voltage vo across an RL load. Reference polarity of vo and reference direction of the output current io are indicated in the figure. It is given that R = 3 ohms, L = 9.55mH. In the interval when vo < 0 and io > 0 the pair of devices which conducts the load current is

Solution:

We consider the following two cases :
Case I : When Q Q1 2 , ON
In this case the +ve terminal of V0 will be at higher voltage. i.e. V0 > 0 and so
i0 > 0 (i.e., it will be +ve). Now, when the Q1, Q2 goes to OFF condition we
consider the second case.
Case II : When Q3, Q4 ON and Q, Q2 OFF :
In this condition, -ve terminal of applied voltage V0 will be at higher potential
i.e., V0 < 0 and since, inductor opposes the change in current so, although the
polarity of voltage V0 is inversed, current remains same in inductor i.e. I0 > 0.

This is the condition when conduction have been asked.

In this condition (V0 > 0, I0 > 0) since, IGBT’s can’t conduct reverse currents therefore current will flow through D D3 4 , until ID becomes negative. Thus, D3 and D4 conducts.
