12 Primary rectifier–inverter. The welding output is smoothed and stabilized and, although it is not possible to achieve the same response rates as those obtained with the series regulator, it is possible to produce the output characteristics required for recent process control developments. This type of circuit was initially used for MMA power sources, but it is now being employed for GTAW and pulsed GMAW units. It has particularly good electrical efficiency and a comparison of inverter and conventional power sources at current settings of 250 A has shown that idle power consumption is only one-tenth of that of a conventional machine and, during welding, the efficiency is around 86% compared with 52% for a conventional unit.
52 Advanced welding processes Self-shielded operation In self-shielded flux-cored wires, the flux must provide sufficient shielding to protect the molten metal droplets from atmospheric contamination as they form and transfer across the arc. Since some nitrogen and oxygen pick-up is inevitable the weld metal chemistry is often modified to cope with this (by adding aluminium for example). In addition to this shielding action, the flux must also perform arc stabilization, alloy addition and slag control functions.
This transformer operates at the incoming mains frequency of 50 Hz. The primary inverter design utilizes the fact that transformer size may be significantly reduced if its operating frequency is increased. The basic circuit is illustrated in Fig. 11 and the principle of operation in Fig. 12. The primary AC supply is first rectified and the resultant high DC voltage is electronically converted by the inverter to high-frequency AC. Only at this stage does the supply enter the transformer. Since the frequency of operation is between 5 and 100 kHz, the transformer is small; furthermore output control is achieved by chopping or phase-shifting within the inverter and very high response rates are achieved.
