I have this chinese 48v to 220 VAC/50Hz pure sine wave (by cnswi power) inverter, this inverter recently stopped working after its mosfet and igbt were burnt, now I am trying to repair.

Design of this inverter is typical type, on low side 2 series transformer driven by 8 mosfet at 31khz, their output is then rectified and I get aboud 350 VDC.

This high VDC is then inverted using a H-bridge (4 igbt) and subsequently fed to a LC filter to remove high frequency carrier waves, and I get 50hz pure wave. H-bridge is driven using a custom made riser board (visible on image, its not EGS002).

High side IGBT are heating up (H-bridge), so my question is, instead of rectifying and later using h-bridge topology, can I directly generate pure sive wave on low side itself (2 transformer), as these tranformers are high frequency capable and should be able to handle carrier frequency by an EGS002 driver board.

H-bridge are risky thing I feel and can get shorted easily, that is why I wanted to eliminate them. Is there potential drawback of this modification?

Thanks in advance

haha - can you modulate the HF transformers to get 50Hz out ? - short answer = no

an H bridge or unfolding ckt is always needed - unless you revert to a 50Hz transformer ....

HF transformer will be operating at the base frequency of 23 khz (of EGS002), this is a SPWM, so it periodically (at 50hz) varies duty cycle, to make a sine wave.
 

You forget that a high frequency transformer can't transfer pwm voltage with asymmetrical duty cycle. Positive and negative voltage*time area must be balanced for every cycle, otherwise it saturates. To transfer 50 Hz spwm voltage, the transformer must be designed for 50 Hz flux.

Thank you, this was the exact the validation I was looking for
