Arduino PWM regulator with IGBT

Hello
I need help.I make big HHO generetor,and I want to controll current with arduino .I want to make PID regulator current.I have current sensor.But my question is to switching IGBT transistor.I put the picture.Ca it work like on the picture.
I have IGBT https://www.mouser.com/ds/2/149/FGH40N60SFD-889108.pdf

I’m not joking or being sarcastic when I say this, you need to find another project.

For starters, you cannot drive an IGBT with a junk Chinese IRF540 low side switch board. Seriously, all you’ll accomplish is blowing things up in very dangerous ways.

320 volts DC is positively lethal and 5000 watts of power is enough to make components explode with the force of a gunshot. This is not something that can be undertaken by an amateur, it’s a death wish.

Agreed, this sounds scary, and in the category of "if you have to ask, you're not up to it".

That's a lot of power, it being about DC makes it a LOT worse! Even just switching that kind of power on and off is not trivial, it will arc big time.

The IGBT needs push-pull drive using a gate-driver chip. MOSFET and IGBT gates are capacitive and cannot be driven single-ended - they require charge to be pushed into and pulled out of the gate actively. Your circuit can only push charge into the gate, but cannot remove it, so the device cannot turn off.

A single MIC4422 at 15V supply will handle as large an IGBT as you can think of, its a powerful gate driver that can handle upto 18V supply and provides many amps of drive.

With this sort of level of voltage and power you are wasting your time trying to build a discrete gate-driver circuit use a gate driver chip, and follow the example circuits and layout given in the datasheet.

20V is too large a voltage to drive an IGBT, they are designed for 15V.

Gate driver chips require lots of good decoupling close to the package, I'd suggest 1uF + 10uF ceramic within millimeters of the chip. The distance from driver chip to IGBT should be as short as possible and as low inductance as possible.

You can check on homemade-circuits , for a detailed IGBT

Think about what he is saying here. (I know I did). The fact that it is capacitive means it can be modeled as a capacitor. When he says 'pushed into' , he means you need to charge the cap. When he says 'pulled out of' he means you need to discharge the cap. Without the capability to do both, the IGBT can turn on but not off.

As far as silicon devices exploding with the force of a gunshot, I have witnessed this, as well as ICs bursting into flames and glowing red, and that was only with a 10A power supply. Put plainly, unless you are wearing a kevlar vest and a full face shield and wearing gloves, it would not be safe to even energize the circuit.

Hi, You do not need 320Vdc for a HHO generator.

Have you googled? hho generator arduino

Can you tell us your electronics, programming, arduino, hardware experience?
