Trading utilization for circuitry: Hardware-software co-design for real-time software-based short-circuit protection

Short-circuit faults are a potential source of damage to circuitry in DC-powered systems. Industrial applications including power converters, inverters, and insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) often rely on fault detection systems in the form of dedicated circuitry to prevent damage. To increase flexibility in short-circuit detection and decrease… CONTINUE READING
