ceramic yes, as in smd is less inductive than most film types.....and smaller......if you shovel your spec into's free PI Expert software it will calculate the entire circuit and bom for you...and tell you the snubber cap part number etc
To understand about saturation effects, we should know the core type and flux in regular operation. A push-pull transformer without any clamping or snubber might drive the MOSFET into avalanche breakdown in regular operation. Inrush current during output capacitor charging will cause respectively higher avalanche energy which might be sufficient
problem with surge (4000v) and burst(2000v This sounds as though you have typical inductive kick. The devices you tried already do not appear to be proper to do the job. A different snubber network might work, such as this DCR (diode-capacitor-resistor)
For each relay, you will need to use the capacitor-diode-resistor snubber network for each relay coils individually. I do not see any problem if you connect the grounds together (look out for ground loops).
As all inductive loads, the motor causes contact arcing. You can reduce, but not completely avoid it by placing an RC snubber across the relay contact, e.g. 47 ohm + 100 nF. The capacitor must be rated for 250 VAC.
I think they mean XC not XL. There isn't much you can do about that, the leakage is the normal operation of the capacitor, making it's value smaller or increasing the resistor value will reduce the leakage but also reduce the effectiveness as a snubber network. What you might be able to do is provide an alternative path for the leakage current to
A bit simplified, the snubber capacitor is charged by a series circuit of resistor and leakage inductance. While R charging involves 0.5CV? losses, L charging is lossless (but oscillating). Varying the L/R ratio gives different fractions 0.5CV?.
it is possible to build a rc snubber r = 100 ohms 1w and c=.1 250v x2 ? my doubt is can i use x2 capacitor instead of ordinary capacitor. regards kalyan
In general you connect the snubber circuit over the relay contacts, regardless of how many phases you use. The snubber will normally be a capacitor and a resistor in series over the contact.
But I dont quite get the reason of adding an RC in parallel with the Cs. Though I tried, it didn't help. Yes, because the snubber becomes useless due to too large resistor value. You should try a value in the range of LC characteristic impedance √L/C, e.g. 0.3 ohm. You should play around with R and C values to get an idea.
can i use a x2 capacitor to prevent relay contact sticking are i must use rc snubber only, then where to use x2 capacitor kindly help thank you
i am running a motor rated 230v 6A 1h, through a relay i want to protect the relay terminals from binding together. i got x2 capacitor with 275v rating can i use this x2 capacitor in parallel to the motor are i must go for rc snubber i found that rc snubber is usually .1mfd and 100ohms if so what capacitor (...)
dear guys i am running BIG DC motor from a relay the relay is acting weirdly after some uses , it gets stuck and needs to be switched on and off several times to run again . some times i hit the relay in order to work !! i have 2 theories for this problem : 1- relay is bad quality (chinease ) and is losing most of its life while soldering it
Does your system switch off current through a coil by making it see high impedance suddenly? It needs to continue to generate current. High voltage spikes can result. These are probably the noise on your waveform. It might be solved by a snubber network across your H-bridge. Possible a resistor and capacitor in series.
Yes I would think its the SSRs leakage current, possibly caused by an internal snubber capacitor, try putting a 100K resistor across the neon lower might work but is starting to consume real power, 10K ~ 4.5W. It could be that the .1V you are measuring is actually 12 V for 10mS, every second, which is just triggering the SSR. Disconnect its input,
A typical snubber circuit for such application comprises a 0.1 to 0.5 uF capacitor rated for >630 V AC, and a 5 to 100 Ohms resistor, 1...5 Watts. Exact values depend upon the load type, inductive loads generate larger transients and require larger caps and smaller resistors in the snubber circuit.
Making the snubber C that large only slightly reduces the Q. Factor 1 to 2 is usually sufficient.
I have a processor controlling a contactor for switching on a 3 phase motor. Whenever I switch on or off the contact(mostly when switching off) the processor hangs. Sometimes the processor is working but the LCD display blanks out. How do I protect from this. What snubbers should I put on the motor contactor or coils ?
Hello , I have Triac switched 600W on 230V. snubber for triac is R=33 ohm and C=10nF Question is what type of capacitor and power resistor used? Ceramic 10nF 2000V is a good choice? What size (Power SMD) resistor to use?
Hello, what is difference between the shunt capcitor and snubber capacitor? What is use of it?
