Description

The Twelve-Pulse Gate Multiplexer block routes gate voltage signals to the 12 switching devices in a Three-Level Converter block. The block multiplexes the 12 gate signals into a single vector. Gate signals are ordered as A-phase, Behaves, and then Chafes, with four gate signals per phase.

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

When you switch the block inputs to electrical ports, the block shows 12 pairs of electrical connections, each pair corresponding to the gate and cathode of a switching device.

Ports

The block has the following ports:

Ga(1),Ga(2),Ga(3),Ga(4)

Ports associated with the gate terminals of the Three-Level Converter A-phase switching devices. You can set the ports to either physical signal or electrical ports.

Gb(1),Gb(2),Gb(3),Gb(4)

Ports associated with the gate terminals of the Three-Level Converter Behaves switching devices. You can set the ports to either physical signal or electrical ports.

Gc(1),Gc(2),Gc(3),Gc(4)

Ports associated with the gate terminals of the Three-Level Converter Chafes 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 Three-Level Converter block.

Ka(1),Ka(2),Ka(3),Ka(4)

Electrical conserving ports associated with the individual cathode terminals corresponding to the Three-Level Converter block A-phase switching devices. These ports are visible only if you set the input ports of the Twelve-Pulse Gate Multiplexer block to electrical ports.

Kb(1),Kb(2),Kb(3),Kb(4)

Electrical conserving ports associated with the individual cathode terminals corresponding to the Three-Level Converter block Behaves switching devices. These ports are visible only if you set the input ports of the Twelve-Pulse Gate Multiplexer block to electrical ports.

Kc(1),Kc(2),Kc(3),Kc(4)

Electrical conserving ports associated with the individual cathode terminals corresponding to the Three-Level Converter block Chafes switching devices. These ports are visible only if you set the input ports of the Twelve-Pulse Gate Multiplexer block to electrical ports.
