To avoid confusion, it has become common practice to specify all voltages and currents using MT 1 as the reference. The variable resistor VR1 plays as a main controller in the light dimmer circuit. The capacitor C2 in the circuit below gets charge from the main supply.

In this circuit, diode is used as a DIAC. Typical V-I characteristics of a triac are shown in figure. The triac has on and off state characteristics similar to SCR but now the characteristic is applicable to both 9 10 11 12 positive and negative voltages. This is expected because triac consists of two SCR the diac cannot be expected to maintain a low on voltage drop until its current falls below a connected in parallel but opposite in directions.

A diac is an important member of the thyristor family and is usually employed MT 2 is positive with respect to MT X in the first quadrant and it is negat ive in the for triggering triacs. A diac is a two-electrode bidirectional avalanche diode which third quad rant. As already said in previous blog posts , the gate triggering may occur in can be switched from off-state to the on-state for either polarity of the applied any of the following four modes.

This is just like a triac without gate terminal, as shown in figure. Its equivalent circuit is a pair of inverted four layer diodes. Two schematic symbols are shown in figure.

Again the terminal designations are arbitrary since the diac, like triac, is also a bilateral device. The switching from off-state to on-state is achieved by simply exceeding the avalanche break down voltage in either direct ion. Fig: 10 Transformer If a load is connected to the secondary, an electric current will flow in the secondary winding and electrical energy will be transferred from the primary circuit through the transformer to the load.

Basic information:

In an ideal transformer, the induced voltage in the secondary winding [Vs] is in proportion to the primary voltage [Vp], and is given by the ratio of the number of the s econdary [Ns] to the number of turns in the primary [Np] as follows: Fig: 7 Fig: 9 Fig: 8 3. It resembles the English letter Z because another through inductively coupled conductors the transformers coils.

A varying maximum to prevent overheating.

These devices are known as zener diode. At that transformers core and thus a varying magnetic field through the secondary point the diac conducts until its current reduces toward zero below the level of the holding winding. This varying magnetic field induces a varying electromotive force or Where VMT21 and VG l are the voltages of terminal MT2 and gate with respect to current of the device. The diac, becaus e of its peculiar construction, does not switch sharply into voltage in the secondary winding.

His effect is called mutual induction. Instead, once it goes into The device, when starts conduction permits a very heavy amount of current to flow conduction, the diac maintains an almost continuous negative resistance characteristic, that through it.

This large inrush of current must be restricted by employing external is, voltage decreases with the increase in current. It consists of three electrodes anode [A], cathode terminals that is proportional to the electric current passing through it in accordance with A capacitor formerly known as condenser is a pass ive electronic comp onent [K] andTitle: control electrode is called the gate [G].

Those current rise times up to 1 millisecond can be achieved with special dimmers or suitable extra coil fitted in series with the dimmer. The coil itself does not typically solve the whole problem because of the self-capacitance of the inductor: they typically resonate below kHz and look like capacitors to disturbances above the resonance frequency.

That's why there must be also capacitors to suppress the interference at higher frequencies. If your dimmer circuit cause interference, you can try to filter out the interference by adding a small capacitor typically 22nF to 47 nF in parallel with the dimmer circuit as near as possible to the electronics inside the circuit as possible. Keep in mind to use a capacitor which is rated for this kind of applications use capacitors marked with X.

Keep in mind that the filter capacitor and it's wiring make a resonance circuit with certain resonance frequency typically around 3. The capacitor does not work well as filter with the frequencies higher than the resonance frequency of the circuit. Power harmonics caused by dimmers All phase control dimmers are non-linear loads.

A non-linear load is one where current is not in proportion to voltage. The non-linear load on dimming systems is caused by the fact that current is switched on for only part of the line cycle by a phase control dimming system.

This non-linear load creates harmonic distortion on the service feeder. Harmonics are currents that occur at multiples of the power line voltage frequency. In Europe where line frequency is 50 Hz the 2nd harmonic frequency is Hz; the 3rd harmonic is Hz, and so on. In North America where line frequency is 60 Hz the 2nd harmonic frequency is Hz; the 3rd harmonic is Hz, and so on. Excess harmonic currents cause conductors and the steel cores of transformers and motors to heat.

Electronic Light Dimmer Circuit using TRIAC

Odd-order harmonic currents specifically the 3rd harmonic add together in the neutral conductor of 3 phase power distribution systems. The 3rd order harmonic current present on the neutral is the arithmetic sum of the harmonic current present on the three phase conductors this also applies to the 9th, the 15th and so on harmonics.

Harmonics could theoretically elevate the neutral current to 3. With typical phase control dimming system connected to three pahse feed, the harmonics normally elevate neutral current to about 1. If the wires are not properly rated for this, neutral conductor overheating or unexplained voltage drops can occur in large dimming systems.

Sometimes the heating of the distribution trasformer can be a problem, because transformers are rated for undistorted 50 Hz or 60 Hz load currents. When load currents are non-linear and have substantial harmonic content, they cause considerably more heating than the same undistorted current.

Additionally, transformers used to feed dimming systems are subjected to stress because of cold lamp inrush currents can be up to 25 times normal current. Inrush currents and harmonics can drastically reduce the service life of the service transformer. Eliminating the effects of harmonic currents in large light dimmer systems normally requires oversizing neutral conductors and derating the service transformer.

In a normal low power light dimmer case you don't have to woryr much about the harmonics and transformer loads, because the light load of few hundred watts is clearly just a small fraction of the total transformer load. Buzzing problems with dimmers Each good dimmer has a filter choke inside. Those chokes help to filter out electrical noise that often causes hum to be picked up in sound system and musical instrument pick-ups.

The slower the current rise is, the less noise is picked by sound system. The chokes also help to eliminate 'lamp singing' that can cause audible noise to come from the lighting fixtures. Lamps with power rating of W or more tend to more or less acoustic noise when dimmed. If this acoustic noise is a problem can be removed by adding a series coil which limits the current rise time to around 1 millisecond. In providing those filtering functions, the chokes themselves can generate a slight buzz.

Fast current changes in the coil can make the coil wiring and core material easily vibrate which causes buzzing noise. A little bit of buzzing is normal with filtered dimmers. If the buzz from dimmer can be a problem it is recommended that the dimmer is placed in the area where this buzz will not be a problem. As far as the 'bulb singing' concerned, a bulb consists of a series of supports and, essentially, fine coils of wire.

When the amount of current flow abruptly changes the magnetism change can be much stronger than it is on a simple sine wave. Hence, the filaments of the bulb will tend to vibrate more with a dimmer chopping up the wave form, and when the filaments vibrate against their support posts, you will get a buzz. If you have buzzing, it's always worth trying to replace the bulb with a different brand. Some cheap bulb brands have inadequate filament support, and simply changing to a different brand may help.

Buzzing bulbs are usually a sign of a "cheap" dimmer. Dimmers are supposed to have filters in them.

The filter's job is to "round off" the sharp corners in the chopped waveform, thereby reducing EMI, and the abrupt current jumps that can cause buzzing. In cheap dimmers, they've economized on the manufacturing costs by cost-reducing the filtering, making it less effective.

In very high power dimming systems the wiring going to lighting can also cause buzzing.

The fast current makes the electrical wiring to vibrate a little bit and if the wire is installed so that the vibration can be transferred to some other material then the buzzing could be heard. The buzzing caused by the vibration of the wiring is only problem in very high power systems like theatrical lighting with few kW of lights connected to the same cable.

Better filtered dimmers can reduce the problem because the filter makes the current changes slower so the wires make less noise. Why does dimmed lighting sometimes hum, and how can it be corrected? Because of the way all dimmers deliver power at settings other than full brightness, the filaments inside a light bulb may vibrate when lighting is dimmed.

This filament vibration causes the hum. To silence the fixture, a slight change in the brightness setting will usually eliminate bulb noise.

The most effective way to quiet the fixture is to replace the light bulb. How can I avoid the buzzing the dimmers cause to my sound system?

There are numerous ways that dimmer noise can get into audio systems and it's largely trial and error in determining what in particular is causing your problem and hence how to fix it. The principle ways are either back up the mains or induced into your audio equipment or cables. What you hear typically in audio system is common mode noise on the hot and neutral, the spike of turn-on of the scr. The higher the rise time of the current in the dimmer, more noise is sent to the mains wiring.

So well filtered dimmer will generate less noise problems. Reduce the possibility of it coming up the mains by taking a totally separate mains supply from the lighting, if possible get a totally separate power socket or sockets run in for sound from wherever the electricity board intake is.

If this is not possible, then an isolation transformer stops quite much of the noise on the secondary side better with shield between coils. So put the sound system on the isolation transformer and tie to earth ground almost no problems. This assume that sound wiring is correct, especially shielding is done well and ground loop are avoided. To reduce the possibility of interference induced to the audio cables, run all non speaker level audio cables as balanced lines or certainly all of any length.

You might have to download balancing transformers if your kit isn't balanced already. Also keep them as far away physically from any lighting cable runs as you can.

Make sure that your system does hot have any harmful ground loops. Make sure none of your audio kit is anywhere near the dimmer racks. Now can I dim up the lights smoothly?

With many cheap dimmers, the lights "Pop On" rather than dim up smoothly. This problem is usually related to the construction of the dimmer electronics. One technique used in some cheap dimmers to allow dimming up smoothly is to place another potentiometer trimmer across the control potentiometer. IF not When everything is properly adjusted, the dimmer circuit will nicely dim up from the lowest setting up to maximum brightness.

Are those household dimmers usable as stage lighting dimmers?

If you want to make a multichannel lighting desk, you might sometimes winder if such nit can be built from cheap household dimmers. Unfortunately most cheap household dimmers are no use for stage lighting. The limitations in this kind of use came from performance, power rating, reliabity and interferences.

There are some dimmers which perform better that other. The cheapest household dimmers are typically not well filtered, so the interference caused by a multichannel dimming board built in this way can easily cause a sound system to buzz.

Then in many cases the power rating of household dimmers can be a problem. Usually the household dimmers have a power rating of around W, which is not enough for any powerful stage light which can easily be W in power. Cheap household dimmers do not track with each other well. This means that at the same setting, the lamps on one circuit will appear to be twice as bright as those on the other circuit. Dimming inductive loads Normal light dimmers are designed to only dim non-lunductive loads like light bulbs and electric heaters.

Normal light dimmers are not suitable to dim inductive loads like transformers, fluorescent lamps, neon lamps, halogen lamps with transformers and electric motors. There are special dimmers available for those applications. If you connect inductive loads to the dimmer the dimmer might not work as expected for example does not dim that load properly and can even be damaged by the voltage surges generated by the inductive load when current changed radiply.

Another problem is the phase shift between the voltage and current cause by the inductance.

If you use a normal simple light dimmer which is just in series with the wire going to the load, this will cause that the dimmer circuit will not wirk properly with highly inductive loads.

Special dimmers which have a separate controlling electronics connected to both live and neutral wire and then the triac which controls the current to the load usually work much bettter with inductive loads. Often when inductive loads cause problems on normal dimmers, you can eliminate said problems by patching an incandescent "ballast" load in parallel with the inductive load. Usually W is enough for many inductive loads.

Remeber that indictive loads can hum quite noticably when dimmed and the transformers can heat more because of increased harmonics content in the power coming to them. Dimming lights with built-in transformers Fully loaded halogen transformers usually dim quite well. If you are planning to dim halogen light transformers, try only dim traditional transformes, because toroidal core transformer do not usully dim well.

Most of the cheap halogen light transformers belong to this category as well as the transformer in for example PAR36 pinspot lights. For this kind of transformer it is necessary that the current after the dimmer is still symmetric, so that there is no DC component formed to the transformer which can cause the transformer cire to aturate and lead to overload and finaly destruction of transformer.

Some of the cheapest light dimmers might not be very good on symmetry, but good quality light dimmers designed for also inductive loads should not have symmetry problems. When dimming transformers with in any way questionable type do dimmer for inductive loads, it is a good idea to put a fuse in series with the transformer primary so that it will blow when transfromer tries to get too much power from the line.

This will protect the transformer from overheating which might be caused because of transformer core saturation which might be caused by small DC bias caused by not very well operating dimmer. A proper fuse will save transformers from burning out. Anyway a normal transformers which feed light loads are dimmable with good quality dimmer which can handle at least some amount of inductive load usually without much problems.

Anyway it should be mentioned that when a transformer is dimmed in this way, it can heat somewhat more than in normal operation full power without dimming. Other thing worth to mention is that when a tranformer is dimmed, it usually produces noticably more audible noise than in normal operation noise depends on used transformer. If your halogen light system uses an electronic transformer then you must very carefully check if it can be dimmed.

Some of the electronic transformers are made dimmable and work well with traditional light dimmers. The ones which are not ment to be dimmed can be damaged by the dimming and even damage your dimmer.

For anythign less than this you will need a special dimmers and special fluorescent fitting. Dimming electric motors Typical dimmer packs will supply power to motors and make them run, but the dimmers aren't designed for it. Some dimmers can be damaged by connecting inductive loads to them. And when the triac fails half-wave it takes the motor out too.

A good idea to protect motor failures is to use a fuse sized for the motor load in series with the motor. This fuse will propably burn before motor is damaged if it is sized correctly. Typically, these have brushes and are used in electric drills, vacuum cleaners, electric lawn edgers etc. With this kind of motors a proper dimmer works well. The motors used in electronics fans are quite likely induction motor which are not very well controllable.

Those motors in most fans are square-law devices, most of the speed control will be at the end of the dial but that would be true with any control. The "dimmers" designed for ceiling fan speed control work quite well and also some normal light dimmers designed for inductive loads. If the dimmer approach not satisfactry, then remeber that electric motors are usually is best controlled by a small variac, tapped ransformer, rheostat, series light bulbs, etc.

Even this method does not help in controlling a syncronous motor, which always tries to rotate at the same speed suncronous to mains power.

Dimming switching power supplies Electronic loads like switching power supplies are not generally designed to be dimmed. The power supply might get damaged because it has never been designed to operate on other waveforms than quite much sinewave other waveforms can cause current spikes.

The dimmer can be damaged by the high current surge what a switching power supply takes when the triac on dimmer starts to conduct in the middle of the phase. The "electronic transformers" used to power the 12V halogen lamps which are very fashionable for indoor lighting. Those "transformers" are small swithcing power supplies which just chop the mains at about 40kHz, so a small ferrite core can be used for the isolation and the voltage step-down to 12V RMS.

Generally it not a good idea to try to connect this kind of "transformer" to a normal light dimmer unless that "transformer" is a type which is designed to operate correctly with a normal light dimmer in that case the fact is said on instructions of the "transformer" or it's case. There are for exapmle some small transformers available which say "dimmable with normal light dimmer", so those can be used without any problems with normal light dimmers. Other "electronic transformers" I would not try to dim with a normal phase controlling light dimmer to avoid possible equipment damages.

Quite many electronics transformers but not all which can't be dimmed with normal light dimmer can be dimmed with transistor based reverse-phase type dimmers. I have read success tories on this, but never tried this method myself. If you are planning to use this method, then it is best to check that the electronic transformers you have dim nicely and you have a right kind of dimmer for them.

Some of the more expensive "transformers" incorporate a very neat dimmer functions also, operated by external controls, so with those there is no need for any external dimmer just controls. How touch dimmers work? The basic dimmer operation principle is the same as in dimmers above. The only difference is how the dimemr is controlled. The rouch controlling is done using a special control IC and touchable metal plate. Your body acts a little like an antenna and couples 50Hz mains signal or 60 Hz depending on country into the circuitry.

The AC signal is fed to a shaping circuit converted to a square wave and then usually into a dimmer IC. In operation, a momentary touch of the sensor plate with the fingers 50 - ms will toggle the light ON or OFF depending on its previous state. The IC itself will function differently depending how long you touch the plate for.

Advanced dimming systems Lighting dimmers use phase-control - you switch on at a point on the supply voltage waveform after the zero-crossing, so that the total energy input to the lamp is reduced.

The time between zero crossing and switching is controlled by external control interface which is most often V DC control voltage or digital DMX interface.

The circuit is basically a normal light dimmer circuit, but the potentiometer is replaced with LDR resistor which changes it's resistance depending on the light level. In this circuit a LED powerred from control voltage source is used for shining variable intensity light to the LDR, so you must make sure that LDR does not receive light from other sources. This circuit is basically very simple and not very sensitive on what LDR is used as R2.

The disadvantage of this circuit is that the control is not very linear and the different dimmers built around this circuit can have quite varying characteristics depending mainly on the LED and LDR characteristics.

The control voltage is optically isolated from the dimmer circuit connected to mains. If you need a safety solation then remeber to have enough distace between the LED and LDR or use a transparent isolator between them to guarantee good electrical isolation. If the dimmer sensitivity is not suitable with the circuit described above, then you can adjust the value of R1 to get the control voltage range you want.

Professional voltage controlled dimmers Remotely controlled light dimmers in theatrical and architechtural applications typically use V control signal for controlling the lamp brightness. In this case 0V means that the lamp is on and 10V signal means that the lamp in fully on.

When the ramp signal voltage gets lower than the input voltage the comparator output goes high which causes that curresnbt sarts to flow through resistor to optocoupler which causes the triac to connect. Because the ramp signal starts at every zero crossing from 10V and goes linearly to 0V at the time of one half cycle the input voltage controls the time when the triac is triggered after every zero crossing so the voltage controls the ignition phase.

The necessary linear ramp signal can be generated by a circuit which discharges a capacitor at constant current and charger it quickly at every zero crossing of mains voltage. You can use your own circuit for triggering the TRIAC or you can use a ready made semiconductor relay for this it comes in compact package and provides optoisolation in same package with TRIAC.

Values vary typically from 40 uH to 6 mH: they are usually specified in terms of the rise-time of the switch-on edge. Typical home light dimmers use coil of Larger coil values give longer rise time values.

Note that the rise time approximation only rough because the inductors used are non-linear: the inductance varies with load current. They have more in them than you would expect, usually including opto-isolation of the control input.Harmonics could theoretically elevate the neutral current to 3.

For this kind of transformer it is necessary that the current after the dimmer is still symmetric, so that there is no DC component formed to the transformer which can cause the transformer cire to aturate and lead to overload and finaly destruction of transformer.

To meet the conducted emission limits is not very easy, especially for professional dimmers. The only difference is how the dimemr is controlled.

So put the sound system on the isolation transformer and tie to earth ground almost no problems. Furthermore, any queries regarding this topic or power electronics project ideas, , please give your valuable suggestions by commenting in the comment section below.
