Figure 2.1 shows the principle circuit of an inverter fed 3-phase AC motor with three phase windings u, v and w. The three phase voltages are applied by three pairs of semiconductor switches v u+/v u, v v+/v v- and v w+/v w with amplitude, frequency and phase angle defined by microcontroller calculated pulse patterns. The inverter is fed by the DC link voltage U DC . In our example, a transistor inverter is used, which is today realized preferably with IGBTs.
