    Theoretically design a three-phase voltage supply simulator circuit that will solve the engineering problem define in the main section of the assignment:

    In the study of power electronics, many tertiary education institutions faced problem in setting up an electrical lab where experiments are conducted using three-phase voltage supply. The difficulty arise was mainly owing to student safety factor. Also, the costs for such experiments are relatively high which further burden the institutions. However, the understanding of such subject is best enhanced through hands-on experience. Thus, conducting the course without any hands-on might not be efficient.

    One solution to these problems is to simulate the three-phase voltage supply at lower amplitude and conduct the experiments using low power rated loads. It is important that the simulated voltage supply has close relationship with the actual three-phase source.

    The theoretical design should conform to the following product specifications:

    • The simulated 3-phase voltage supply has the wave shape, frequency and phase differences of an actual 3-phase voltage supply.
    • 0V to 20V user adjustable voltage amplitude.
    • There should be indicators to show the failure of respective phases in case there is any short circuit occurs in any of the phases.
    • Optimum load voltage regulation.
    • Output frequency 50Hz
    p/s: input: single phase 230vrms, 50Hz...

    Thankz lot guys....:)
