Project Type MQP Submission date 2012-04-25 Authors Marcus Calixte Amilcar, ECE Norbert Chu, ECE Luis Rafael Espaillat, ECE URN E-project-042512-120740 Title Inrush Transient Current Mitigation Advisor Emanuel, Alexander E., EE Availability unrestricted
The main goal of this Major Qualifying Project was to design and implement an inrush transient current mitigation technique for high power full-wave bridge rectifiers with capacitive loads. The inrush current was simulated using PSpice V9.1 for both single-phase and three-phase bridge rectifiers. The mitigation was obtained by gradually charging the capacitive load using small pulses of current, before energizing the system. These pulses of current were controlled by an MSP430 microprocessor synchronized with the input source.
