Abstract:

This report covers effort under contract DAAK70-78-C-0117 to develop the baseline design for a microprocessor based power conditioner controller. From reviewing the controller functions listed in the previous monthly reports several design considerations evolved and a general block diagram of the controller was developed. The block diagram consisted of several modules surrounding a centrally located microprocessor and its interface. Design considerations for a particular module involved one or more approaches in the development of that module. In the latter case, the optimum approach was selected. The combination of these approaches form the baseline design. The modules were designed to interface to existing Delco SCR gate driver circuitry. All of the existing sense signals will remain intact. Additional conditioning of some existing sense signals may be required. The inverter output voltages will be sensed directly through precision attenuators. The individual modules were designed to perform their functions with minimum control and supervision from the main microprocessor. This permits the main microprocessor to accept more tasks at a later date and spend more time monitoring the overall operation of the power conditioner via sense signals without the burden of generating complex timing signals.
