IGBTs reduce power dissipation in motion control applications

INTERNATIONAL Rectifier’s four new 600V insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) can reduce power dissipation in inverters in motor control applications up to 2.5kW by as much as 60%.

Co-packaged with ultrafast soft recovery diodes, these IGBTs have lower collector-to-emitter saturation voltage (VCE(ON)) and total switching energy (ETS) than punch-through (PT) and non-punch-through (NPT) type IGBTs.

The combination of low VCE(ON) and ETS of trench IGBTs result in reduced power dissipation and higher power density in motion control applications with wide range of switching frequency conditions such as in air conditioner and refrigerator compressors, vacuum cleaners, washing machines, dishwashers, ventilation fans, industrial drives and circulating pumps.
