Input signal: square or sinwave?
Hello if I am using a square inverter do I need any different transformer as if I use a sinwave one? Can I use the same transformer for both inverters?
You dont need any different transformer, you can use the same if the average voltages and frequencies are the same. You just have to be careful with the flux density, you might be aware of no exceeding the maximum flux density Bm.
If you have the core selection, material and number of turns, and you use a square wave it gives a 11% more flux density than sinewave with the same values of voltage and frequency.
Ok so if if i have:
1. sinwave inverter having 500W with 50Hz
2. square wave inverter having 500W with 50Hz
can I use the same transformer for both conditions right?
Yes the same transformer will work.
With sine waves the primary will need to be driven with a PWM sine wave signal.
With square waves the primary is just switched on and off.
