Fundamentals of Understanding and Applying IGBTs

More Info +- Less Info

The IGBT—Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor—is a switching component used to control power for a wide variety of loads such as motors, induction heaters, power inverters, and power supplies. It has some similarities with the other commonly used switching element, the MOSFET, but also key differences.

"Fundamentals of Understanding and Applying IGBTs" will examine the basic operation of the IGBT, and briefly compare and contrast it to the MOSFET. The course will then look it key performance parameters, drive issues, operating frequency, selection criteria, cost issues, and the critical thermal and packaging issues. It will minimize discussion of device structure and physics, and focus on the IGBT mostly as a three-terminal "black box" which controls the on/off flow of power to loads which can range up to the thousands of volts and hundreds of amps.

This is a great intro, but some slides deserve more study; is there any possibility of being able to download the slides (maybe as a pdf?) Thanks, Peter P.

I wonder if I could actually get this in downloadable form. It gets very itnresting and this course could well turn out to be a good read. There are various shortcomings in the switches and IGBT could be aiding the process of providing the key performance parameters. However you will see a lot of the projects fail simply because the problem is that these are more often created by management or project issues and not really anything to do with the electronics in question. For an example a project management course like can help reduce your chances of failure.

Apologies the link that was regarding the project management was supposed to be Prince2 Training
