Investigation of IGBT switching energy loss and peak overvoltage using digital active gate drives

Abstract:

This paper presents an experimental investigation of the switching energy loss and peak overvoltage occurring in a half-bridge Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) converter which is switched using an Active Gate Drive. A range of voltage profiles is systematically applied to the IGBT gate and the resulting switching behaviour is measured to obtain the switching energy loss and peak overvoltage for each gate profile. The experimental apparatus which allows different gate waveforms to be t...
