Abstract [en]

This report covers the construction of a prototype inverter system designed to power the rail of a maglev train, from component selection through simulations and power demands to mounting and wiring the components into a cabinet. The inverter is made with insulated gate bipolar transistors controlled with pulse-width modulated signals provided by a custom microcontroller. The output of the inverter is a controllable three-phase square wave. The prototype was tested with a microcontroller designed for a different gate driver, making it necessary to design and create an adapter to be able to test it. The results showed that an inverter of two-level topology, together with capacitors, is a viable option for a 10 kHz switching frequency.

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapporten täcker konstruktionen av en prototyp till en inverter topologi designad för att driva rälsen till ett maglevtåg. Från komponentval genom simulering och kapacitetskrav, till montering och sladdragning av komponenterna in i ett skåp. Invertern är gjort med bipolär-transistorer med isolerat syre (IGBTer) som styrs med en pulsbreddsmodulerad signal försedd av en egendesignad mikrokontroller. Utsignalen från invertern är en styrbar trefas fyrkantsvåg. Prototypen skulle testas med en mikrokontroller designad för en annan gate driver, därför var det nödvändigt att designa och producera ett adapterkort för att kunna köra testerna. Resultated visade att en två-level inverter, tillsammans med kondensatorer, är en genomförbar lösning för 10 kHz switchingfrekvens.
