P0A5E DescriptionThe inverter converts the high-voltage direct current of the HV battery and the alternating current for the MG1/MG2. The inverter contains a three-phase bridge circuit, which consists of 6 power transistors each for the MG1 and the MG2, in order to convert the direct current and the three-phase alternating current.
The HV control ECU controls the actuation of the power transistors.
The inverter transmits information that is necessary for effecting control, such as the amperage and voltage, to the HV control ECU.
The motor inverter current sensors detect the amperage that flows through the V and W phase cables between the inverter and MG1/MG2. The inverter transmits information that is necessary for effecting control, such as the amperage and voltage, to the HV control ECU.
The HV control ECU monitors the inverter current sensors to detect a malfunction in the sensor system.
