Abstract

Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) inverters are of huge and great impact in many engineering disciplines. It plays a big role in the field of power electronics regarding voltage sources to vast amount of electronics equipments and machine controllers. The use of artificial intelligence in gate signals control in PWM voltage source inverter (VSI) is tackled, analyzed, and implemented in this paper. The PWM technique that investigated in this work is the Selective Harmonic Elimination (SHE). For this technique, the single phase H-bridge inverter is considered for the study. In the SHE based inverter, the fundamental voltage level and the harmonics selected for deletion are decided using a neural network ad fuzzy logics. For the SHE technique, the results of generating switching angle patterns, using the neural and the fuzzy model controllers, for driving H-bridge inverter, show almost exact resemblance, compared to those obtained using conventional controllers. Also the superiority at the intelligent models overcome the problem of delay time and have fast response in selecting and generating the PWM patterns required to regulate the inverter output voltage.
