Benefits of CoolSiC MOSFETs in Bi-Directional Inverter Applications - July 2021
With the move to renewable energy, there is an increased focus not only on generation but also storage, to make the most of the intermittent supply from wind and solar. Batteries are the common...

Selecting the best IGBT for an application can be confusing and time-consuming, so is it worth the time? In this article, we will attempt to simplify the selection process by providing an explanation for the trade-offs to be considered. To illustrate the benefits, the author will describe the performance improvement possible with a new generation of 600V IGBTs targeted for DC/AC inverter applications. By using optimised trench IGBTs, IR can improve efficiency or reduce system heatsink size or increase current density out of the same board ass embly.
