  1. 1. On Gate Drivers for MOS-Controlled Power Devices and dv-dt Filters for Train Traction Converters

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Erik Velander; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Power semiconductor devices; DC-AC power converters; Silicon carbide; Insulated gate bipolar transistors; P-i-n diodes; Schottky diodes; Traction motors; Power MOSFET; Krafthalvledare; DC-AC kraftomvandlare; kiselkarbid; IGBT; P-i-n dioder; Schottky dioder; traktionsmotorer; Effekt-MOSFET; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, low-loss gate-drive solutions and a proposed dv/dt-filter have been investigated with focus on train traction converters with dv/dt constraints.By using the silicon carbide (SiC) junction field-effect transistor (JFET), the switching losses can be significantly reduced compared to the commonly used insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT), but complex gate-driver solutions are required for high utilization in terms of loss reduction.

  3. 3. Quasi Resonant DC Link Converters - Analysis and Design for a battery Charger Application

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Per Karlsson; [1999]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; quasi resonant DC link converter; soft switching; converter efficiency; IGBT; battery charger;

    Abstract : Environmental aspects have during the last years made electric vehicles an interesting competitor to the present internal combustion engine driven vehicles. For a broad introduction of pure electric vehicles, a battery charging infrastructure is deemed necessary. However, to build and maintain such an infrastructure is costly. READ MORE

  5. 5. On integrity assessment of IGBT-based power stacks used in magnet power supplies for particle accelerators

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Panagiotis Asimakopoulos; [2019]

    Abstract : This thesis analyses an electrical testing method for assessing the integrity of an IGBT-based power stack assembly during factory acceptance tests and service stops. The method combines vce measurements with high current in the Zero Temperature Coefficient (ZTC) operating region and with low sensing current within a specific current cycle using a proposed sampling and filtering technique.
