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

    Author : Erik Velander; Hans-Peter Nee; Francesco Iannuzzo; KTH; []
    Keywords : 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.
