Power electronic converters for high power ultrasound transducers
MetadataShow full item record
Piezoelectric transducers convert electrical energy to mechanical energy and play a great role in ultrasound systems. Ultrasound power transducer performance is strongly related to the applied electrical excitation. To have a suitable excitation for maximum energy conversion, it is required to analyze the effects of input signal waveform, medium and input signal distortion on the characteristic of a high power ultrasound system (including ultrasound transducer). In this research, different input voltage signals are generated using a single-phase power inverter and a linear power amplifier to excite a high power ultrasound transducer in different medium (water and oil) in order to study the characteristic of the system. We have also considered and analyzed the effect of power converter output voltage distortions on the performance of the high power ultrasound transducer using a passive filter.
