Convert Voltage


Recommended Posts

It would be simple with a TL494 variable-frequency oscillator with its opposing outputs driving an H-bridge made from two pairs of complimentary Mosfets. I gave the details in your other posted topic.
You'll need some inverters to drive the H-bridge with some dead-time for the seriesed Mosfets. ;D

Hi Alun,
For about 50ns of each output transition, both Mosfets will conduct 10A to hundreds of amps from the power supply to ground. That's why I suggested using a SMPS IC with its dead-time controlled to avoid both Mosfets in series conducting at the same time. :(

The little 555 is bad by itself since it conducts about 400mA from the supply to ground through its output transistors in series across the supply. :(
;D

PS. Won't the bridge-connected load receive almost 14VAC peak-to-peak? ???
I guess a 14V peak-to-peak square wave has the same heating effect for a resistive load as a 5V RMS sine wave or 5VDC. To get 7V effective output it should be boosted by 1.4 times.

Just found this old thread whil searching, oh well I'lll respond even though no none probably cares. ;D

Both MOSFETs will only turn on for a few uS even less so use a choke on the power supply, about 470uH should do.

Power the 555 though a 47hom resistor and connect a 100nf and 100uf capacitor across it and don't connect pin5 to 0V as shown in the diagram connect it to 0V vai a 10nf capacitor, better still use a 7555.

Better still use a a modified sine wave but that's a whole new story.
