This work investigates the use of an active gate control circuit to reduce the EMI produced by switching power converters. The active gate drive circuit makes it possible to adjust the voltage transition rate of a MOS-gated semiconductor switch on a pulse-by-pulse basis during PWM operation. This paper shows that tailored application of this circuit in a hard- switched inverter can be used to reduce the conducted common- mode EMI generated by the inverter while minimizing the incremental… CONTINUE READING
