The effectiveness of combinatorial search heuristics, such as Genetic Algorithms (GA), is limited by their ability to balance the need for a diverse set of sampling points with the desire to quickly focus search upon potential solutions. One of the methods often used to address this problem is to simulate the theory of punctuated equilibria in the GA. The(More)

In this paper the dynamic clamping properties and design aspects of modern IGBT devices are discussed, a detailed characterization of a dynamic clamping optimized single IGBT chip is shown as well as the way to the integration into a big high current IGBT module. The upcoming possible advantages both for the designer of an inverter as well as for the chip(More)
