SG3525 Pulse width modulation controller IC

Control Integrated circuit for SMPS SG3525 : Pulse frequency modulation and pulse width modulation are two types of techniques used in control integrated circuits for switch mode power supplies.In Pulse frequency modulation technique on time of pulse remains constant but frequency increases with the increase in load.But Pulse frequency modulation technique cause some issues in switch mode power supplies. On the other hand in Pulse width modulation technique frequency remains constant but the width of pulse changes with the change in load. The width of pulse or on time increase with the increase in load. Pulse width modulation also resolve the issues which occurs in Pulse frequency modulation. Therefore, Pulse width modulation is preferred technique for control circuits of switch mode power supplies.



There are many PWM ( Pulse width modulation ) controller integrated circuits  available in the market which you can use very easily in your SMPS projects by connecting some external circuitry with them according to the selection of frequency.I will discuss these things in detail later in this article. There are two types of PWM controller integrated circuits:

Voltage control method used a feedback voltage by comparing it with reference value to set duty cycle of PWM. In return to control output voltage of SMPS. While current control method use Output current from output inductor to compare it with the reference value and to set the duty cycle of PWM. I have used voltage mode PWM controller in pure sine wave inverter. Sg3525 is used in Dc to DC converter part to control the output voltage and for switching of MOSFETS connect to push pull converter chopper.



How to use SG3525

Sg3525 is a voltage mode PWM  controller integrated circuit. It is used in maximum inverters available in market. Even top inverters manufacture companies also use Sg3525 in dc to dc converter part of the inverter. It is a 16 pin integrated circuit. It have two PWM outputs both are inversion of each.Another advantage of  SG3525 is that it has built in totem pole base PWM driver. If you want to know about the internal architecture of SG3535. Search its data sheet. Description and functionality of each pin is given below:

Above diagram shows the pin configuration of SG3525. Description of each pin is given below:

SG3525_pin

  • Pin 1 is a inverting pin and pin 2 is a non inverting pin.If the voltage on inverting pin is greater than voltage on non inverting pin, duty cycle increases and  if voltage on non inverting pin is greater than inverting pin , duty cycle decreases. So you can use one pin for feed back through voltage divider and one pin for setting of reference voltage.
  • pin 3 is used for synchronization of two waves.
  • pin 4 is output of oscillator.
  • pin 5, 6 and 7 is used to set frequency of PWM. Frequency can be calculated by using following formula:

f= 1 / CT (.7 * RT+ 3 * discharge)

By adjusting values of CT capacitor, RT resistor and discharge resistor. you can adjust the frequency of PWM.

  • Pin 8 SS is a used for soft starting for enabling output after some time. Greater the value of capacitance connected to pin 8, greater the soft start time.
  • pin 9 is a compensation pin used with feedback to avoid from rapid fluctuations in output voltage with the  change in load or input voltage.
  • Pin 10 is shut down pin. IF shut down pin = 0 it will work and if shut down pin = 1 means connected with 5 volt it will remain in shut down mode.
  • pin 11 and 14 are output pins. These pins provide input to mosfets and as I have already mentioned, there is no need to connect any mosfet driver beacuse sg3525 have built in mosfet driver circuit.
  • Pin 13 and 15 are power pins. Vc should be between 5-35 volt and Vin should be between 8-35 volt.
  • Pin 16 is a reference pin and it is used to set reference voltage through pin 1 or 2. It can also be used to to give 5 volt to shut down pin in case you want to shut down sg3525 through push button.
