Abstract

WAVEFORM GENERATION IN POWER ELECTRONIC CONVERTER USING OBJECT ORIENTED PROGRAMMING IN MATLAB

ABSTRACT The paper presents the programming methodology for generating voltage and current waveforms in power electronic converters using MATLAB. Although, these waveforms can also be obtained by using MULTISIM or PLEXIM simulation tools, but using MATLAB increases understanding of the circuit operation better. In this method, the power electronic converter circuit is first resolved into circuit modes (states) based on the specifications and switching strategy employed. The inductor currents and capacitor voltages are used as objects with properties and methods in each circuit state. The terminal values of each circuit state are matched with beginning values of the objects in the next circuit state. Details of classes, methods and functions will be presented in the full paper. The paper presents examples of Buck, Boost, BuckBoost, Full-Bridge PWM converter and other converter topologies. This methodology is general enough to generate waveforms in several DC-DC converters and inverters.
