Oscillation analysis of an Active Gate Control circuit for series connected IGBTs

Abstract

A Quasi Active Gate Control (QAGC) circuit provides an effective way to control static and dynamic voltage sharing to series connected IGBTs. However, different circuit parameters such as balancing capacitors, parasitic inductances, and gate resistances may influence the oscillatory stability of the power semiconductor switches during commutation. This… (More)
