Inverter Project[/img]

Hey guys a little new to this forum, need some advice

So I found this circuit on a video(see image above) I was watching that alternates the polarities, I set it up on a bread board and It works perfectly with normal switches but I tried using a TIP120 and a RFZ44N transistor with the arduino. The problem is the transistors keep turning into resistors when the voltage is applied to the gate pin. Any advice on what transistors I need to use? or what im doing wrong?


Please read How to get the best out of this forum (short version)

At the least, we need a schematic. Post your schematic in CAD or a picture of a hand drawn circuit in jpg or png. PLEASE- not a pretty Fritzing picture.

Just what are you trying to make? The video seen above is not there.

Fixed? I still can’t see it.
Anyway, depending on your needs, a simple H-bridge motor driver chip may work. Albeit for a “square” instead of a “sine” wave.

Welcome to the forum.

Please read the post at the start of any forum , entitled "How to use this Forum".

It is best that you attach images so they can be viewed in your post.

OPs image

You would be best to draw your circuit and post a picture of it.
Please include;
Your controller and pin numbers.
Component names and pin names.
Complete Power supply circuitry including voltages.

Thanks.. Tom... :slight_smile:

How about a proposed schematic, your picture is not a schematic. How to you control shoot through, if you do not you will blow a lot of IGBTs. What transistors are you using that have gates? What are the voltages and currents you want to switch. Do you have any experience in designing SMPS units?
