explain blanking times for Bridge circuit?

143 views

1 Answer

Answer :

Blanking time is provided by driver circuit to power switch. Blanking time is important because the turn on input of one transistor must be delayed with turn off input of another transistor if both the transistors are connected in one converter leg. This blanking time helps in avoiding cross conduction.
