Power Conversion Control Board

Nuvation Engineering designed a mixed-signal power control board for renewal power systems, including hydro plants, photo-voltaic power systems, and wind farms. The board has RS-232, RS-485, 10/100 Ethernet, and FlexCAN interfaces implemented with a Freescale ColdFire MCF5282  microcontroller. A Texas Instruments C6713 floating point DSP is used for system control and power calculations.


Design Features:

  • An Altera Cyclone II FPGA to drive optical control and fault handling of external power transistors
  • Four programmable waveform generators
  • ST and Versatile optical connectors for communication and control
