IGBT gate driver upgrades to the HVCM at the SNS

Abstract

The SNS at ORNL has been fully operational since 2006 and in September 2009, the design goal of 1 MW of sustained beam power on target was achieved. Historically, the high voltage converter modulators (HVCM) have been a known problem area and, in order to reach another SNS milestone of ≥90% availability, a new gate driver was one of several areas targeted… (More)
