High power IGBT-type inverters are being pushed to work at high frequencies e.g. >20kHz to avoid significant power losses and improve power density. The stray inductance and high di/dt at each turn off cycle leads to a voltage overshoot. The … Continue reading
Manufacturer ABB have announced that the 62Pak series of IGBT modules is now officially released for mass production. The 62Pak line-up consists of phase-leg modules in the 1,700V class available in either 300A, 200A or 150A current ratings. The state … Continue reading
Thermal modelling data now available for IBGT modules from ABB Thermal descriptions for ABB’s IGBT power modules can now be downloaded for use in the PLECS simulation platform. Engineers can save time and reduce the risk of errors by using … Continue reading
