Mazilli ZVS Driver Modification Problems
« on: January 12, 2020, 05:36:46 PM »
I've been playing around with Mazilli ZVS drivers and HV flyback transformers for about a year now and I decided to make a few alterations that just aren't panning out. My first driver was the most common one that you see online. I cant seem to figure out how to attack pictures, so this link will have to do.

https://www.instructables.com/id/ZVS-Driver/


The only adjustment I made was I used the IRFP260N. It worked perfectly. I got a few sets so I could play around with stuff and not worry too much about if I blow a MOSFET out. I dont have any testing equipment other than a DDM so a lot of my learning is trial and error.

My set up is simple. I have a largish variac which is rectified and hooked up to a large capacitor bank. I built my own flyback transformer because I ran out of ones salvaged form old TV's. This way if something burns out, I can just rewire it. Its made of 2 cores glued back to back with the primary in the middle and two HV secondary's on the outside connected in series and has a core gap of about 2mm, submerged in mineral oil.

With the IRFP260N I have no issues at all, but it tops out about 60V input and I wanted higher input voltage. The alterations I made were that I use 6000 ohm 6W resistors for the gates and I used a 24v zener diode and the IXFX100N65X2 MOSFET. When I look at the ratings of the IXFX100N65X2 vs the IRFP260N it seems like it should work, but it doesn't. I got 6 of them (trial and error) and all of them have failed as soon as I turn them on and I cant for the life of my figure out why. The only time it doesn fail instantly is when I turn them on at about 20V and I can hear the transformer ringing but as soon as adjust the voltage or try to draw an arc it fails. They don't blow up, its just a sudden dead short in one of the MOSFET's. I'm determined to make it work, however I'm a bit out of my depth and until I know why its failing I don't see any point getting more or trying new MOSFET's. Especially at $20 a pop.

I did some reading online and it seems that running them at higher voltages is a problem because of, and correct me if I'm wrong, the output capacitance of the MOSFET increases with the voltage rating and that doesn't allow the body diode to recover fast enough? Either that or something to do with bipolar latchup (which I still need to read up on). The one article I read says that reducing the switching speed should help, but I'm operating at levels I can hear, so under 20kHz, and that should give the diode plenty of time to recover.

Can any one shed any light on this for me? Any advice or linke for reading would me much appreciated. I salvaged a pair of the MOSFET's for one more attempt, but don't want to make a move until I get some solid input.

here are some links to the parts and the most helpful article so far:

It will be an interesting challenge to debug with only a DMM for measurement.  However, a couple thoughts come to mind.

First, at such low frequencies and relatively high voltage, saturation of either the supply inductor or the flyback core seems likely.  Can you share specifications or design details for those?  For the flyback, how many turns (especially for the primary)?  What core material and dimensions (especially cross-sectional area within winding)?  What core and winding count is your power feed inductor?  If a commercial inductor, current and inductance specifications?  What resonant capacitor(s) are you using - capacitance, voltage, dielectric material?

Second issue is gate-drive current.  6k ohms on 60V is 10mA.  That will take 18us to charge the 180nC gate charge, too slow for even your low-frequency operation.  For high-voltage operation, I'd suggest the following ZVS circuit.  It's what I use in my ~1kW 170V Jacob's ladder (documented under it's own topic):


Another circuit option for lower gate-drive impedance is:

This is closer to the typical circuit, but uses two small PFETs to turn off the gate-drive resistor current during most of the cycle, allowing much lower-ohm resistors without excess power dissipation.  I prefer the first option above, but either should work for your needs.  This second one is designed for 60V, but values could be adjusted for higher voltage.

I dont know how to calculate the time it takes to charge the gate (if you could share that would be much appreciated) but I suspected that 6k ohms was too high. So I went ahead reduced the gate resistor to 1k ohm and turned it on at 25VDC. It worked perfectly and I could draw an arc. I cranked it up to 100VDC and it was still working, but at max arc draw the MOSFET's shorted and were destroyed. So I think we are on the right path here.

The prints you provided were very helpful and I'm still reading though your post on the Jacob's ladder you made. Interesting stuff and very impressive! I have a few questions about the Jacob's ladder circuit, but I'll get to asking them after I read those few pages on it. I'll most likely be ordering parts to make one.

To answer your questions:

The supply inductor (I'm assuming you mean the toroid) is one I got form a discount store. Its ID is 23.5mm, OD is 47mm, height is 18mm and its blue. I wound 17 turns of 14guage wire on it.

The transformer cores I got on amazon. They are UF86A,U shape, MnZn PC40. I got two pairs and glued them together so it looks like 2 E sections where the center is thicker than the outsides. I forget exactly, but I believe I put a total of 14 turns around the center part of the E and center taped it (made some litz wire for it). The cross sectional area of the primary coil is about 855mm (its 28.5mm x 30mm) and has a 2mm gap between the two E sections. I put too many coils on the secondarys to keep track of, but should have about the same amount.



The capacitors are MKP, 275nF, 530VAC. I use 3 of them in parallel for a total of 824nF.

I guess what I'm most confused about is why it works with the IRFP260N and  sort of not with the IXFX100N65X2. The IRFP260N circuit has a 2.5k ohm gate resistor and a Qg of 234 nC vs the IXFX100N65X2 Qg of 184nC.

I know its next to impossible to figure out what's going on with only a DMM. I'm thinking about getting something to measure inductance and a cheep scope. They have pocket size scopes on amazon for about $80. Should serve my needs.

Andrew,

The supply inductor is entirely a guess without knowing core parameters.  It's presumably powdered iron or iron alloy.  Taking a wild guess at permeability of 100, it would be about 70uH and good for ~70A peak.  The flyback is easier to estimate, as PC40 material characteristics are published.  Still guessing on the fringing fields around the 2mm gaps.  I'm estimating 60-70uH for 14 turns, but that would make the frequency a bit over 20kHz.  Hearing the oscillation suggests the frequency may be lower and therefore the inductance higher.  Perhaps 16 turns or perhaps more fringing field than I'm guessing.  Either way, it should handle ~700V peak, or ~200V DC input before saturating.  So it looks like saturation is probably not the issue.

That leaves two likely causes.  Slow FET turn-on is one.  The two FET gate charges are quite similar.  The primary difference is the gate-source charge (charge to the first knee in gate-charge graphs).  It's only 25nC for IRFP260N, but 60nC for IXFX100N65X2.  The second knee is more similar, 100nC vs. 120nC.  These curves are not directly relevant to ZVS use.  Simulation would be the best way to analyze the differences.  There may be some artifacts when the FET does belatedly turn on - I haven't simulated or experimented enough to know what issues may arise.  (LTSpice is a free simulation tool that I use regularly.  It can be downloaded from Analog Devices, since they bought Linear Technology.)

The other possible issue that I didn't think of initially is the arc causing enough load to make the resonant Q too low to maintain oscillation.  When ZVS oscillators drop out of oscillation, both FETs are on with ~6V drop, and the current rises to whatever the power supply can feed to a 6V load, often enough to fry FETs.  (My Jacob's ladder has an over-current shut-down circuit that I didn't detail in the post.)

In both simulations and experiments, having a coupling factor of 0.85 or lower allows the ZVS to continue running with any secondary (arc) load.  For low-impedance loads (short circuit), the oscillation frequency is ~1.5-1.8x higher, being defined by the leakage inductance.  With no arc (high-impedance load), the frequency is normal, based on the flyback transformer's inductance.  I tried winding an old TV flyback with 10 turns on the exposed U-core leg and measured coupling factor at 0.81.  That's the typical configuration for the instructables.  I'm guessing your coupling factor may be low enough, but can't tell well enough from just geometry.  Drawing an arc will increase the resonant frequency, so make FET switching time more critical.

One other complication with HV transformers is that the HV winding often has enough capacitance to have a major effect on the resonant frequency.  This capacitance is after the coupling factor (leakage inductance), so behavior gets a bit complex.  I'm not too sure how well my <=0.85 coupling factor rule holds when there's significant secondary capacitance.  (I'm currently making a small ZVS HV circuit where the secondary winding capacitance is the dominant resonate capacitance, with only tiny capacitors on the primary.)  Perhaps secondary winding capacitance explains why the frequency is low enough to hear, rather than 16 turns as I had guessed initially.

I'd suggest getting the switching times well under 1us for charging to the second knee (120nC), which implies a current over 120mA.  That's the advantage of my Jacob's ladder circuit, the gate-charging current comes from the resonant circuit directly, rather than from a gate pull-up resistor.  Once gate drive is fast, it will be easier to hunt for other issues.

Just remembered one more possible issue to warn about, especially if you continue past 100V.  Sudden load changes can cause momentary spikes in oscillation voltage.  As the arc length grows, power increases, so the current in the power-feed inductor increases.  When the arc breaks, power suddenly drops.  The power-feed inductor has lots of stored energy (I^2L).  This stored energy feeds into the primary ZVS oscillation, which increases amplitude until all that energy is stored in the resonant circuit (capacitor and flyback inductance).  This can more than double the oscillation amplitude, so could even be a problem at 100V.  100VDC input is ideally PI times that or 314V peak.  Not much more than double that will reach avalanche-breakdown Vds for the IXFX100N65X2 FETs.  I use lots of 1500W TVS diodes across the IGBTs in my Jacob's ladder, as it has a very tight voltage budget.  170V peak input (120VAC rectified line) leads to 535V normal peak, not much below the 600V IGBT rating I'm using.

This was a rambling answer, but hopefully useful.  Good luck!

FYI, this type of circuit doesn't much care for switching times -- that's the whole point and meaning of ZVS -- but do check if the slew rate is adequate, i.e. because of the resistor pullups there.

The one thing you definitely do not want to do is enforce sharp switching.  This circuit is an analog oscillator and anything you do to break that loop, will break the oscillator.  It may start up in a random oscillation mode, it may sit there chattering and burn up transistors even faster than before.  Without logic, it may even turn off both transistors at the same time, which in a current-fed inverter is precisely the same error as turning ON both transistors in a half-bridge!  Kaboom!

Also note that the opposing side may not pull down far enough to turn off the one side, i.e. you need low drain saturation voltage.  And this includes dynamic voltage, so ground impedance needs to be quite low, as well as Rds(on).

Which makes high voltage operation that much worse, and in turn, high power operation that much worse.  This circuit works best, say, under 100V?  The problem is, drain and gate voltages are connected (by the diodes).  Drain voltage being comparable, makes sense (indeed, it has to be more than ~5V, otherwise the gate won't fully turn on).  Drain voltage being more than, say, 10 times higher -- not as sensible, it puts heavier demands on the transistors.  Still possible, yes, but it just keeps getting less and less reasonable as it goes up.

Which means even if you're dumping upwards of 50A, you're limited to a few kW, maybe 10kW tops, and you'd need a bunch of transistors in parallel to reach that level I would think.  And you still need a power supply or converter of some sort, it's not direct offline range.  So you're dealing with those knock-on costs as well.


Last time I build one of these circuits, I used a complementary emitter follower to buffer the gate voltage, so a modest (1k?) pullup was all that's needed, and that ran at 500kHz into transistors, that are, smaller than what you have here (~30nC??) but because the frequency is so much higher in my case, it illustrates much higher performance.  So do consider using that.

The second circuit above is interesting in that the gate pullup is switched, allowing reasonable performance without costing too much continuous dissipation.  Probably performs as well as my configuration, give or take optimization of component values.  Probably a bit less efficient overall (you're still dissipating some excess power in those resistors) but not nearly enough to matter for us.


For high power, I would rather suggest a half-bridge circuit, which can be very much like the current mode circuit in a CFL.  Now, it is current mode, which stinks for MOSFETs which are voltage mode drive.  You could perhaps assemble a little transresistance amplifier (current in, voltage out) to convert current transformer feedback into gate drive voltage, without sacrificing the analog oscillator behavior; which again, this circuit necessarily has.  The half-bridge configuration allows a voltage-fed inverter, and divides the supply voltage so that high voltages are economical to use (500V devices with rectified 240VAC, say).

Note the load will be series resonant, and should be a relatively high impedance, so, a smaller capacitor (rated much higher voltage) and more primary turns.

One advantage will be higher OCV, easier for striking sparks.  Actually, it may be too high, which will also draw excessive current from the inverter, and drop excessive voltage across the capacitor.  You may want an overcurrent circuit.

 davekni,

I'm curious what your experiments will show with the secondary capacitance being the main resonating capacitance. Will be looking for that in the future.

I had to do some googling on leakage inductance and coupling factors to start to understand what you were talking but, but I found it really help full. I think your last point about the high load dropping out and causing a voltage spike is spot on. When I got the new one running (in my previous post), it was working fine until I went a bit over 100VDC input and then at the end of the arc the MOSFET's were destroyed. So I'm thinking I will be adopting second circuit but will add some TVS diodes. I do have a few, maybe amateurish, questions for you about it.

First: What is the purpose of C3?
Second: What are the important characteristic of the p-mosfet that I should be keeping an eye out for?
Third: When selecting the TVS diode, I would want to choose something a few tens of volts under my MOSFET voltage rating, but also well over normal operating voltage, correct? Why did you chose such high wattage TVS diodes?
Lastly: Would you mind telling me if something like this MOSFET is a good fit? I looked for something with a smaller gate charge and slightly higher voltage rating, as that seem to be my main issue.

https://www.mouser.ca/datasheet/2/827/DS_UF3C065040K3S-1530313.pdf


Also, I had a bit of a face palm moment. I realized that the reason for the unexplained failure of the brand new MOSFET's could be due to them being about a foot away from my X8 voltage multiplier with an estimated output of 200'000 volts. I noticed while running it today that some metal objects around it started arcing to ground. Probably what did them in. The ones that did work I think survived by luck and died due to the voltage spike caused by the sudden drop in load.

That looks like (along with R3) a soft start circuit. I used a similar scheme with a flyback driver with very low primary inductance; without it, the power supply was tripping before the circuit could start oscillating.

(Apologies it that's completely wrong!)

Andrew,

Just got my new little (20W) ZVS running yesterday, the one with stray HV winding capacitance of the transformer as the dominant resonance.  Matches simulation fairly well.  Normal intended oscillation is 22kHz - feeds a small DIY plasma ball with ~+-8kV.  As with Tesla coils, it has a second higher resonant frequency where the transformer primary and secondary winding currents are 180 degrees out-of-phase, 530kHz in my case.  As in simulation, I had to add a 530kHz notch filter across the primary to prevent locking to that frequency instead of 22kHz.

C3 and R3 form a local 12V gate-drive DC supply.  For that version running on only 19V input, picking a value for R3 got me close enough to 12V.  For higher input voltages, place a 12V zener diode across C3 to keep the gate voltage at 12V.  (I added a 12V zener for my 60V version of that circuit.)  Unlike the typical ZVS circuits, the average current needed by the gate-drive 12V supply is fairly low.  However, the current draw peaks at each zero-crossing.  C3 is just a supply bypass capacitor to provide those momentary current peaks.  You may need to adjust the value of R3 to provide enough current to reach 12V, but not too much excess to avoid wasting power in R3 and the zener diode.  Or, if it's easier, just use a small 12V DC supply (wall wart or ...) for the gate drive voltage.  Keep C3 for local current peaks.  Value is not critical - I had a 10uF cap around, which measured 9uF, so that's what is in my schematic.

Startup of ZVS oscillators can be problematic.  In the first circuit I shared (Jacob's ladder), R2 provides a lower current to the main oscillator to get it started before applying full power through switch S1.  For the second circuit, I don't recall if C3's slow charging helped with startup or not.  At only 19V where I simulated, it worked as is.  I'll need to play a bit with higher voltages in simulation.

The small PMOS FETs see only the gate-drive voltage, so 20 or 30V parts are fine.  Their gate voltage is the same as for the large devices.  That's typically the issue with such low-voltage devices - they often have 8 or 12V maximum Vgs.  I have lots of old (obsolete) small 60V FETs (VP1306) around, so use those.  Just look for a small PFET with on-resistance under 10 ohms and max Vgs of 20V or more.

TVS diodes are listed by the peak transient power they can handle.  1.5kW TVS diodes are in similar packages as 3-6A rectifier diodes, and are typically rated for 5W continuous power.  Voltage specifications are a bit complex too:  Standoff voltage, breakdown voltage, clamping voltage.  For hobby projects, I measure low-current breakdown voltage after buying a set, then use them at that voltage.  For example, 100 1.5KE250CA parts measure very close to 250V at room temperature and ~1mA current.  Pairs of those in series start conducting at 500V.  Even though my Jacob's ladder theoretically hits 530V peak, the TVS diodes just warm up a bit until their breakdown voltage increases enough to handle that.

I don't have any personal experience with SiC parts, but the UF3C065040K3S one you listed looks good.  Definitely lower gate charge.
Do you know how much current you will be running from your power source?  One issue with higher-voltage ZVS using FETs:  As the FETs warm up, on-resistance (and therefore Vds) goes up and gate threshold voltage goes down.  With the diode-drop added, the FET in the ON state may not have low enough Vds to keep the other FET turned-off completely.  (That's one small advantage to my first circuit.  It avoids the diode drop, so drives the OFF-state FET with slightly lower Vgs.)  Have you considered using IGBTs for your relatively low-frequency ZVS?  IGBTs have lower temperature coefficients of threshold voltage and especially forward voltage drop (Vce).  That's why I use them for my Jacob's ladder circuit.  Even at it's ~100kHz frequency, there are fast enough IGBTs available.

Proximity to 200kV could be an issue if your circuit isn't shielded.  If it is in a shielded box, it should be fine.  (Not being mechanically inclined, my circuit shielding is often a cardboard box lined with aluminum foil.)

Good luck!

TVS diodes are used this way:

Nominal rating: maximum operating voltage while drawing small currents, i.e. Ir <= Ir(max).
Breakdown: voltage range (mfg spread) at specified Ir = Iz (usually 1mA or something).
Peak: voltage max at specified Ir = Ipk (usually some amperes).

Ipk is the permissible peak current for the given waveform, usually a 8/20us (direct or induced surge) or 10/1000us (induced lightning) transient.

Roughly speaking, Vpk is Vbr + Rs * Ipk, assuming a resistive characteristic.  The avalanche breakdown mechanism is pretty aggressive even at these high currents, so it's still not resistive as such.

Typically, Vpk is around 30% higher than Vnom, so you want to choose Vnom for the application, then Vds(max) (since we're talking about protecting transistors here) to be >= 30% higher than that.  650V transistors should operate up to about 400-500V peak, and use a TVS (or stack thereof) rated the same nominal.  Which, for a PP ZVS circuit, is a supply around 220VDC.

Since Vpk depends on Ipk, if you know the Ipk in your application, you can solve for a more representative Vpk.  The datasheets aren't usually specific enough to do this, however.  (MOVs do usually give these data, but MOVs are much sloppier than TVSs -- higher internal resistance, bigger ratio between Vnom and Vpk -- so they aren't so great at protecting transistors.)

Because Ipk is defined by a given waveform, if you know your waveform is different, the maximum permissible Ipk may be different in your application as well.  TVS have pretty good dynamic range, good enough that you can reasonably extrapolate the power-time curves down to quite small time scales (fractional microseconds?).  Which usually follows about a P ~ 1/sqrt(t) asymptote, implying the limiting factor is heat diffusing out of the junction.

davekni,

Oh man, every time I think I got my head around how these little magic black boxes work I learn some new parameter I need to keep in mind lol. Normally I just look for highest Vds, lowest Rds on, 20-100amp continuous, lowest time delay on/off and lowest rise/fall times. I just added lower gate charges and faster revers recovery times. Now I gotta look into how thermal co efficient works. Deviating from the tried and true comes with quite the learning curve! I don't mind it though.
 I thought about using IGBT's but I know less about them and their requirements than MOSFET's and so have been hesitant to use them. But now that I am looking at them.... Seems like I should be using them. For $6.59 a piece, what's wrong with this?
 https://www.mouser.ca/datasheet/2/196/Infineon-IHW40N120R5-DataSheet-v02_03-EN-1382532.pdf

I cant pull more than 15 amps from my home plugs, so anything more than 20 amps should be fine. The one above is 80amps and 1200v for Vce. That means I wouldn't have to use TVS diodes. I kind of feel like a sucker for paying $20 a pop for my last set of MOSFET's lol.

When you say DIY plasma ball, do you mean light and incandescent bulb? I have a plasma ball at home and as soon and I learned I could pop the ball off and put it on my ZVS flyback I did. Less than spectacular and I think its because the frequency was too low, probably around 10kHz. When you did yours, did you connect the other ent of the HV secondary to ground?

T3sl4co1l,

I don't think I'll be using the H-bridge because that would mean I need ot learn a whole new thing. I feel like im so close to making this work!
My whole goal is to get an out put of 100Kv on the secondary and I think its doable. I took some measurements the other day and about ever 5v into the ZVS driver gets me about 2500v on the secondary. That's a low figure because the resistor I'm using as a probe for me DMM draws power plus I'm losing voltage due to harp points in open air. At 60VDC in I get about 30KV out of the secondary. I figure if I can pull this off, at 170VDC in I should get some where between 80KV to 100KV on the secondary. From there its a x10 multiplier and I've got 1MV, which has been my goal for ages lol. But if I can get this ZVS driver up and running ill take more accurate measurements in oil with larger capacitors.
