# An experimentally verified IGBT model implemented in the Saber circuit simulator

@inproceedings{Hefner1991AnEV, title={An experimentally verified IGBT model implemented in the Saber circuit simulator}, author={Allen R. Hefner and D. M. Diebolt}, year={1991} }

A physics-based insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) model is implemented in the general-purpose circuit simulator Saber. The IGBT model includes all of the physical effects that have been shown to be important for describing IGBTs, and the model is valid for general external circuit conditions. The Saber IGBT model is evaluated for the range of static and dynamic conditions in which the device is intended to be operated, and the simulations compare well with experimental results for all of…
