Advantages of Advanced Active Clamping
Power Electronics Europe Decembre 2009
Power semiconductor manufacturers are offering IGBT modules with ever greater power densities. The limit is represented by the maximum power loss that can be dissipated; optimization criteria are the packaging technology as well as the conduction and switching losses of the semiconductor chips. The high current density of the modules together with high switching speeds place increased demands on the driving circuits, both in normal switching operation and under overload conditions. Advanced Active Clamping switching technology offers a solution showing how modern high-power IGBTs can be better utilized.
