I am working on making an autonomous robot. Right now, I am involved in designing an H-Bridge using discrete components for my robot. I am almost done with the H-Bridge design, and want to test it now. However, I am not being able to decide a dead time for the input complementary PWM I will provide as an input to the H-Bridge. I know that to prevent overshoot, you have to delay the turn-on of the low-side FET by at least as much as the turn-off time of the high-side FET. The same goes of course for the other transition, when you switch from low-side to the high-side.
I have searched about finding the dead time online and I haven't found any useful information. The information I found was for H-Bridges who have gate driver circuitry designed discretely, and use formulas to find the actual turn on and turn off times of the MOSFET. Whereas, I am using IR2112 to drive the MOSFETs (IRFZ44N in my case).
I am attaching the schematic of my H-Bridge circuit. Please view it and tell me how should I calculate the dead time. I do know the turn on/off delays of both the gate driver IC and the MOSFET. Should I add the turn off delay of both these to get my dead time?
