How can I optimize my 3-level convertor design using Dynex IGBT Modules?

Dynex has IGBT modules optimized for either conduction or switching losses. You can select the best matching module for each circuit location requirements and not be limited by a single module option that is a performance compromise. To get support from our application team Contact us

What is the best process to mount down an IGBT Module

All manufacturers should provide guidelines that are specific to their modules. Please refer to AN4505.

Which IGBT module can be used in environments with higher levels of Hydrogen Sulphide present?

Dynex Semiconductor’s 1700V IGBT module M1 range (152x 62mm) has met the compliance standards of the ISA 71.04-2013 (Industrial Standards for the protection of electronic equipment). This enables inverters to operate reliably within environments where there is higher levels of H2S (Hydrogen Sulphide) present for longer. Operating environments with high levels of H2S are found in wastewater treatment, mining and paper production as well as other applications.

Are IGBT and thyristor (SCR Silicon-Controlled Rectifier) the same ?

They are both semiconductor devices, both have a controling terminal called a ‘gate’ and both are designed to handle high voltages and currents. But, they are based on different technologies.

An Insulated-Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) has the combined features of a MOSFET and bipolar junction transistor (BJT), an IGBT requires a continuous gate voltage to keep it turned off and can be turned off more quickly by the application of a negative voltage. It can handle high power levels and can switch on and off at higher frequencies than a thyristor.

A thyristor is based on a 4-layer transistor technology designed to handle high currents and voltages and it requires only a pulse provided to the gate terminal to change to a conducting mode (turned on) and returns to a blocking mode (turned-off) when the forward current drops below the threshold holding current  .

Dynex IGBT’S and thyristors can be used for many similar applications:

Dynex range of IGBT modules include half bridge, chopper, dual, single and bi-directional switch configurations covering voltages from 1200V to 6500V and currents from 100A to 3600A. Modules are available utilising chips that have been optimised for switching or static losses depending on the application.

Dynex Thyristors are typically used in AC to DC converters (Rectifiers) which employ phase control to vary the average voltage on the output of the converter or to switch the AC supply on and off.

Thyristor devices are designed and manufactured for particular applications where higher blocking voltages and increased current capability are required and frequency of operation makes it a suitable choice.

What are the voltages of Dynex IGBT switches?

Dynex range of IGBT modules include half bridge, chopper, dual, single and bi-directional switch configurations covering voltages from 1200V to 6500V and currents from 100A to 3600A. Modules are available utilising chips that have been optimised for switching or static losses depending on the application.

How are IGBT modules used in Industrial applications?

Dynex IGBT modules are designed and manufactured in a variety of blocking voltages, current capacity, circuit configuration dimensions and isolation voltages. IGBT modules are designed to produce high reliability and customised to meet the individual demands for end applications including aerospace, automotive, medical, renewable energy and traction Industrial markets.
