10:00 Short-Circuit Behavior of 6.5 kV RC-IGBT
M.Sc. Holger Wiencke, University of Rostock, Rostock, Deutschland
This paper presents measurements of the short-circuit behavior of 6.5 kV high power Reverse Conducting IGBT (RC-IGBT). Differences between short-circuit types I-IV are investigated for RC-IGBT and compared with conventional IGBT. The results are discussed concerning the optimized gate-drive pulse pattern for RC-IGBT usage.
10:25 New Transfer Mold SMD Type IPM with Integrated RC-IGBT, Bootstrap Diode and Capacitor
M.Sc. Yazhe Wang, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Fukuoka, Japan
A new transfer mold SMD type IPM developed for small capacity motor drive in home appliance products that compact size and high reliability are pursued is presented in this paper. By utilizing new packaging technology and thin wafer RC-IGBT the new SMD type IPM successfully incorporated not only 3-phase IGBT bridge and gate-driver ICs but also BSDs and Bootstrap Capacitors (BSCs) into a very compact surface mount type package that can dramatically minimize overall size and complexity of the inverter drive system.
10:50 The Series of 7th-Generation "X Series" RC-IGBT Modules for Industrial Applications
M.Sc. Akio Yamano, Fuji Electric, Matsumoto, Nagano, Japan
We describe the series of our newly 7th-Generation "X Series" RC-IGBT Modules for Industrial Applications.
11:15 4.5kV Rupture Resistant Press Pack IEGT
Raita Kotani, Toshiba, Nomi-shi, Japan
A 4.5kV class Press Pack IEGT (PPI) with an improved rupture resistance is presented. That capability is not only achieved by increasing the thickness of the ceramic package, but also by optimizing the parts inside the package. The rupture resistance of the new package could achieve 13.3 MA2sec which is 1.7 times of that of the conventional package.
11:40 New Low Loss Phase Control Thyristors for Medium Current UHVDC Transmission
Dr. Sascha Populoh, ABB Switzerland, Lenzburg, Schweiz
The presented new generation of 8.5 kV class Phase Control Thyristors (PCTs) in package with 119 mm pole piece features reduced ON-state voltage VT through optimized wafer thickness, resistivity and cathode design. Additionally, dV/dt and tq ratings were improved as well in the whole range of VT/Qrr values relevant for HVDC and industrial applications. This device completes the new generation PCT platform of ABB with rating currents of 1.5, 3 and 6 kA.
