Description

The Six-Pulse Gate Multiplexer block routes gate voltage signals to the six switching devices in a Converter block. The block multiplexes the six separate gate signals into a single vector.

If you want to use Simscape™ Electronics™ to model the electronics that drive the Converter block, you can switch the input ports of the Six-Pulse Gate Multiplexer block from physical signal ports to electrical ports.

When you switch the block inputs to electrical ports, the block shows additional electrical reference input ports. The additional electrical reference ports are associated with the individual phase voltages that connect to the high-side switching devices in the Converter block and the negative DC voltage common to each low-side switching device in the Converter block.

Ports

The block has the following ports:

Ga(H),Gb(H),Gc(H)

Ports associated with the gate terminals of the Converter block high-side switching devices. You can set the ports to either physical signal or electrical ports.

Ga(L),Gb(L),Gc(L)

Ports associated with the gate terminals of the Converter block low-side switching devices. You can set the ports to either physical signal or electrical ports.

G

Vector output port associated with the multiplexed gate signals. Connect this port to the G port of the Converter block.

a,b,c

Electrical conserving ports associated with the individual phase voltages that connect to the high-side switching devices of the Converter block. These ports are visible only if you set the input ports of the Six-Pulse Gate Multiplexer block to electrical ports.

L

Electrical conserving port associated with the negative DC voltage common to each low-side switching device in the Converter block. These ports are visible only if you set the input ports of the Six-Pulse Gate Multiplexer block to electrical ports.

Introduced in R2013b
