Solid-state circuit breakers and current limiter can provide significant advantages in speed, lifetime and functionality compared to electromechanical switchgear used in distribution systems. The paper presents the operation characteristics of emerging ETO semiconductor power switch during turn-off transient. The gate commutating rate at turn-off, dIG/dt, is improved to as higher as 12kA/mus. Experimental results demonstrates that a 75 mm ETO can safety interrupt 8kA current instead of 3 kA in… CONTINUE READING
