Solid state modulators are increasingly being used in pulsed power applications. In these applications IGBT modules must often be connected in parallel due to their limited power capacity. In a previous paper, we introduced a control method for balancing the currents in the IGBTs. In this paper, we investigate techniques to minimize the modules' rise and fall times, which can positively impact the modulator's output pulse parameters, which in turn must meet the application's specifications… CONTINUE READING
