This project proposed a transformer less topology to reduce overall cost and weight of t9he inverter and using H6 inverter with electromagnetic coil filter to reduce the leakage current and electromagnetic compatibility losses and also eliminates the DC injects into the load and using MPPT to generate maximum power.
The above presented leakage currents are the basis for designing a laboratory system for the leakage current generating.
In addition to eliminating alarms due to high leakage current, use of these individual isolation transformers allows the purchasing agent to continue saving money from buying consumer-grade electronic products with no risk of violating the code for operating rooms and patient care vicinities.
The leakage current is the subthreshold or weak inversion current that flows from drain of a transistor to its source when the transistor is off (gate voltage is below the threshold voltage).
As shown in Figure 1, when the leakage current of the DUT exceeds the high limit, it is considered to be a failure.
Victor Koldyaev and titled, "A Leakage Current Model for SOI based Floating Body Memory that Includes the Poole-Frenkel Effect (PFE)," describes for the first time how the leakage current of SOI based floating body memory has been modeled and compared to experimental Z-RAM data, taking into account oxide/SOI Dit and PFE.
Still, Tseng said serious challenges remain for extending the life of planar CMOS, such as the need to reduce defects in Ge or Si-Ge layers; ensuring that the mobility advantages observed for bulk materials are not lost when epitaxial channels are grown on Si; and control of Ge band-to-band tunneling, which increases overall leakage current.
