Abstract

This paper presents a study of the behaviour of PT and NPT IGBT in Zero Current Switching mode. Simulations allow to estimate the stored charge during turn-off cycle in this switching mode. We observe and we explain how to reduce turn-off losses by action on the gate drive, or by the choice of the device technology.
