Most power electronic conversion systems use low voltage control and supervisory circuitry to manage the switching processes and other ancillary functions. This circuitry is typically supplied from a separate low power auxiliary supply, commonly derived from the main power stage supply. Usually it must be energized prior to the main power stage to ensure safe operation of the converter. Auxiliary supplies can be realized using either a low frequency AC transformer/diode rectifier, or a switched… CONTINUE READING
