Some Aspects of Power Electronics: Gate Drivers

June 17 @ 10:30 pm - June 18 @ 12:00 am

Admission: Free. Refreshments and light snacks offered. Registration Required. Abstract When a power electronics application is discussed, the most important parts are topology and switches (Si MOSFETs or IGBTs, SiC MOSFETs or JFET, or GaN HEMTs). However every switch requires a gate driver, a power amplifier that receives a low-power input from a controller and produces a high-current driving output for the gate of high-power switches. There are different type drivers: non isolated, level shifted and isolated; one driver, half and full bridge drivers or three drivers in one package. Some gate drivers have protection features such as fast short-circuit protection (e.g. DESAT), active Miller clamp, shoot-through protection, shutdown, and overcurrent protection, which make them well-suited for both silicon and wide-bandgap power devices. Selection of proper driver is also important. In this seminar different types of gate drivers and parameters that need to be taken in account when selecting of a gate driver will be discussed.
