A new gate driver circuit for improved turn-off characteristics of high current IGBT modules

Conference Record of 1998 IEEE Industry Applications Conference. Thirty-Third IAS Annual Meeting (Cat. No.98CH36242), 1998

In hard switching converters, power dissipation can be reduced by using high power device switching speed.

  • Power-Loss Breakdown of a 750-V 100-kW 20-kHz Bidirectional Isolated DC–DC Converter Using SiC-MOSFET/SBD Dual Modules

    This paper describes the design, construction, and testing of a 750-V 100-kW 20-kHz bidirectional isolated dual-active-bridge dc-dc converter using four 1.2-kV 400-A SiC-MOSFET/SBD dual modules. The maximum conversion efficiency from the dc-input to the dc-output terminals is accurately measured to be as high as 98.7% at 42-kW operation. The overall power loss at the rated-power (100 kW) operation, excluding the gate-drive and control circuit losses, is divided into the conduction and switching losses produced by the SiC modules, the iron and copper losses due to magnetic devices, and the other unknown loss. The power-loss breakdown concludes that the sum of the conduction and switching losses is about 60% of the overall power loss and that the conduction loss is nearly equal to the switching loss at the 100-kW and 20-kHz operation.

However, fast turn-off of high current IGBT modules leads to high voltage transients for which the power devices have to be rated. In this paper, existing overvoltage protection schemes are briefly discussed and a new gate driver circuit with an improved trade-off between voltage transients and turn-off losses is proposed.

  • Phase-shift controlled zero current switching high frequency inverter in the MHz frequency range

    This paper deals with the novel soft-switching inverter topology and its capability of high frequency switching technology to be applicable to the power conversion system. To realize the switching power supply in the MHz switching application, there are some problems to be solved. Especially, the switching loss and EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) noise increase by the MHz switching operation is significant. In order to overcome these problems, we propose the phase-shift controlled ZCS (zero current switching) inverter in this paper. This circuit has soft-switching capability in the MHz switching range by the ZCS circuit topology and can control the output power by the phase-shift controlled method. In addition, effectiveness of this circuit is confirmed by simulation and experimental result.

  • A carrier-based adjustable discontinuous PWM for three-phase voltage source inverter

    PWM strategy is classified into a Continuous PWM (CPWM) and a Discontinuous PWM (DPWM). Because the conventional DPWM has constant non-switching period which is 120° of fundamental period, DPWM could bring about the high Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) compared to CPWM and the lower switching loss than CPWM. This paper presents a carrier-based Adjustable Discontinuous Pulse Width Modulation (ADPWM) for 3-phase Voltage Source Inverter (VSI). The non- switching period can be controlled from 0° to 120° of fundamental period using the proposed PWM strategy. Thus, it can be noted that the ADPWM offers tradeoff between THD and switching loss. This paper also proposes a seamless transfer method from CPWM to DPWM with the proposed PWM strategy. With the proposed method, the non-switching period is variable according to Modulation Index (MI). The validity of the proposed strategies is verified by the experimental results with 3.7 kW induction machine drive.

  • Great improvement in IGBT turn-on characteristics with Trench Oxide PiN Schottky (TOPS) diode

    Experimental results of the IGBT turn-on characteristics using 1200 V/50 A Trench Oxide PiN Schottky (TOPS) diode as the free wheeling diode are described. Compared to the conventional PiN diode, the TOPS diode showed an approximately 25% reduction in the turn-on loss of the IGBT. A reduction of 40% in the peak collector current of the IGBT has been achieved which results in a substantial suppression in the noise emission.

  • FPGA-based combined PWM-PFM technique to control DC-DC converters

    This paper describes a combined Pulse Width Modulation (PWM)-Pulse Frequency Modulation (PFM) technique implemented in a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) to control DC-DC converters. This technique changes the mode of operation from PWM to PFM with the change in the load condition. The efficiency of the proposed technique is determined by implementing a DC-DC converter and calculating the conduction losses, switching losses, and ripple voltages at different load values. Furthermore, the efficiency of the converter based on the proposed technique is compared to the efficiency of processor-based implementation. The results show that the efficiency of the converter with the FPGA-based technique is higher than the efficiency of the converter with processor based technique.

  • A MCT-based zero voltage switching PWM inverter

    This paper presents a MOS-controlled thyristor (MCT) based zero voltage switching (ZVS) scheme for PWM inverters. The proposed scheme utilizes a front end DC voltage notching circuit consisting of auxiliary switches and resonant components. This allows the DC link voltage to be brought to zero on command. MCTs are used as auxiliary devices since MCTs were designed for enhanced dynamic performance under ZVS conditions. A detailed analysis of the circuit operation is presented. The feasibility of the proposed scheme is experimentally verified on an inverter.

  • Synthesis of PWM plus phase-shift bidirectional dc-dc converters

    PWM is introduced to phase-shift bidirectional dc-dc converters, which can reduce current stresses, conduction loss and switching loss of semiconductors and can expand ZVS range. A technique to synthesize PWM plus phase-shift bidirectional dc-dc converter topologies is presented. Theoretical analysis, simulation and experimental results of one particular converter taken as an example, are provided in this paper.
