Characterization and Design of Three-Phase EMI Noise Separators for Three-Phase Power Electronics Systems
In this paper, three-phase noise is first analyzed using a symmetrical component theory. Three-phase noise separators are modeled and characterized using symmetrical component theory and S-parameters. The critical formulas used to evaluate a three-phase noise separator are derived, and a function scheme and circuit structure for three-phase noise separators are proposed based on the theory developed, as shown in Fig. 2 and Fig. 3. The techniques for designing a high-performance, three-phase noise separator are explored, and a three-phase noise separator prototype is built, measured, and evaluated using the theory developed in this paper. The prototype is successfully used to measure electromagnetic interference in a practical three-phase power electronics system.
