Modification Of Transistor/Resistors In AC 37KW LS Inverter
Last week a customer brought to my shop an ac inverter of 37 KW in an urgent situation (the main drive in one of his production lines), as he described the problem , there was no torque in the motor , it rotates but you can stop it by hand.
I made my first visual check but there was no sign of burns or defected component s, I start making Multimeter checking on the critical components such as the IGBT , Capacitors and etc but no problem seem to be there.
So I checked the datasheet of the SMD transistor (NA), it was a normal transistor but with 2 (4.7KOhm) for self biasing ,as the situation urgent and I can’t wait for two weeks for the new transistor to arrive. I had to come out with a solution fast.
I made my decision to build one (it looks strange)but I made it as shown in the photos:
I used transistor 2SC2120 with 2 resistor 4.7kohm, then the inverter was installed in the machine and works fine and the important thing is my customer was so happy.
