TheSTK554U362A is Intelligent Power Module (IPM) based upon ONs Insulated Metal Substrate Technology (IMST) for 3-phase motor drives which contain the main power circuitry and the supporting control circuitry. The key functions are outlined below:

 

IC PIN FUNCTIONS

 

+, U-, V-, W-

These pins are connected with the main DC power supply. The applied voltage is up to the Vcc level. Overvoltage on these pins could be generated by voltage spikes during switching at the floating inductance of the wiring. To avoid this behavior the wire trac-es need to be as short as possible to reduce the floating inductance. In addition a snubber capacitor needs to be placed as close as possible to these pins to stabilize the voltage and absorb voltage surges.

 

U, V, W

These terminals are the output pins for connecting the 3-phase motor. They share the same GND potential with each of the high side control power supplies. Therefore they are also used to connect the GND of the bootstrap capacitors. These bootstrap capaci-tors should be placed as close to the module as possible.

 

VDD, VSS

These pins connect with the circuitry of the internal protection and pre-drivers for the low-side power elements and also with the control power supply of the logic circuitry. Voltage to input these terminals is monitored by the under voltage protection circuit. The VSS terminal is the reference voltage for the control inputs signals.

 

VB1, VB2, VB3

The VBx pins are internally connected to the positive supply of the high-side drivers. The supply needs to be floating and electrically isolated. The boot-strap circuit shown in Figure 20 forms this power supply individually for every phase. Due to integrated boot resistor and diode (RB & DB) only an external boot capacitor (CB) is required.

CB is charged when the following two conditions are met. ① Low-side signal is input ② Motor terminal voltage is low level

The capacitor is discharged while the high-side driver is activated.

Thus CB needs to be selected taking the maximum on time of the high side and the switching frequency into account.

 

The voltages on the high side drivers are individually monitored by the under voltage protection circuit. In case an UVP event is detected on a phase its operation is stopped.

Typically a CB value of less or equal 47uF (±20%) is used. In case the CB value needs to be higher an external resistor (of apx. 20Ω or less) should be used in series with the capacitor to avoid high currents which can cause malfunction of the IPM.

 

HIN1, LIN1, HIN2, LIN2, HIN3, LIN3

These pins are the control inputs for the power stages. The inputs on HIN1/HIN2/HIN3 control the high-side transistors of U/V/W, and the inputs on LIN1/LIN2/LIN3 control the low-side transistors of U/V/W respectively. The input are active high and the input thresholds VIH and VIL are 5V compatible to allow direct control with a microcontroller system

Simultaneous activation of both low and high side is prevented internally to avoid shoot through at the power stage. However, due to IGBT switching delays the control signals must include a dead-time.

 

 

For fail safe operation the control inputs are internally tied to VSS via a 33kΩ (typ) re-sistor. To avoid switching captured by external wiring to influence the module behavior an additional external low-ohmic pull-down resistor with a value of 2.2kΩ-3.3kΩ should be used.

The output might not respond when the width of the input pulse is less than 1μs (both ON and OFF).

 

FLTEN

The FLTEN pin is an active low input and open-drain output. It is used to indicate an in-ternal fault condition of the module and also can be used to disable the module opera-tion. The I/O structure is shown

 

The internal sink current IoSD during an active fault is nominal 2mA @ 0.1V. Depending on the interface supply voltage the external pull-up resistor (RP) needs to be selected to set the low voltage below the VIL trip level.

For the commonly used supplies VP:

VP = 15V -> RP >= 20kΩ VP = 5V -> RP>= 6.8kΩ

 

For a detailed description of the fault operation refer data sheet chapter 4

 

Note: The Fault signal does not latch permanently. After the protection event ended and the fault clear time(2ms) passed, the module operation is automatically re-started. Therefore the input needs to be driven low externally activated as soon as a fault is detected.

 

TH

An internal thermistor to sense the substrate temperature is connected between TH and VSS. By connecting an external pull-up resistor to arbitrary voltage, the module temperature can be monitored. Please refer to heading 3.2 for details of the thermis-tor.

Note: This is the only means to monitor the substrate temperature indirectly.

 

 

Operation procedure

Step1: Please connect IPM, each power supply, logic parts, and the motor to the evaluation board,

and confirm that each power supply is OFF at this time.

Step2: Please impress the power supply of DC15V.

Step3: Please perform a voltage setup according to specifications, and impress the power supply

between the “+” and the “-” terminal.

Step4: By inputting signal to the logic part, IPM control is started.

(Therefore, please set electric charge to the boot-strap capacitor of upper side to turn on

lower side IGBT before running.)

* When turning off the power supply part and the logic part, please carry out in the reverse order

to above steps.

Output Short Circuit

Output Short-Circuit protection type of IC is latch type to turn off when the output current exceeds the detection current and the state is maintained.  The output short-circuit protection circuit is activated in and event of short-circuit in the output pin. When the short-circuit state continues for a period of time set by the internal timer (approximately 4uS), the output in which short-circuit was first detected are switched to the standby mode, And if the short-circuit state is still detected, all the outputs of the channel are switched to the standby mode, and the state is held, this state is released by setting ST to low.

3 LOW HIGH QUARTER STEP
4 HIGH HIGH 1/16 STEP
JUMPER CLOSED=LOW     I          JUMPER OPEN= HIGH

Current Setting Reference Voltage Attenuation Ratio (A1 & A2 Closed= Low, Open=High)

  • ATT1-A1 Low I    ATT2-A2 Low = 100%
  • ATT1-A1 High I    ATT2-A2 Low = 80%
  • ATT1-A1 Low I    ATT2-A2 High = 50%
  • ATT1-A1 High I    ATT2-A2 High = 20%

The formula used to calculate the output current when using the function for attenuating the VREF input voltage is giving bellow

  • I out+(VREF/%)X(Attenuation Ratio)/RF resistance

Example: At VREF of 1.0V, a reference voltage setting of 100% (ATT1-A1=Low ATT2-A2=Low) and an RF resistance of 0.5 Ohms, the output current is set as shown bellow,

  • I-Out=1.0VX5X100%/0.22Ohms=0.91A

If, in this state (ATT1-A1=High, ATT2-A2=High), I-Out will be as follows:

  • I-Out =0.91AX50%=455Ma

In this way, the output current is attenuated when the motor holding current is supplied so that power can be conserved.
