Abstract: In this article, we introduced solar based H-Bridge inverter and high frequency transformer-rectifier for high voltage DC Applications. High Voltage Bridge Rectifier circuit is designed by series connection of large number of 1N4007 diodes. High Frequency transformer is made up E-Type ferrite core and Litz wire. The modeling of PV module and power supply to the electrostatic precipitator was simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK and its results were validated with experimental results of portable “needle-plate” type ESP. This prototype was developed to optimize the collection efficiency according to the different applied voltage and to determine the optimum voltage to be applied without risk of breakdown. The objective of this paper is design and develops the solar powered cost effective needle-plate type electrostatic precipitator, including a high voltage power supply made-up of a power electronic converters and ferrite core transformer.
