  40. 40. Applications• Thyristor is only used for very large power applications.• Forced commutated thyristors are no longer used.• Bipolar junction transistors are no longer used.• MOSFET is commonly used in low-power applications.• IGBT is used from low-power up to medium power applications.• GTO is used for large power applications.
  41. 41. Loss Considerations• Conduction losses• Switching losses• The loss will determine the junction temperature and the heatsink and cooler required.• In many cases, the switching frequency is limited by the temperature instead of device speed.
  42. 42. Snubbers• Turn-off losses can be reduced by using a turn-off snubber. This snubber is also useful to limit high dv/dt across the device.• Turn-on losses can be reduced by using a turn-on snubber. This snubber is also useful to limit high di/dt through the device.• Snubbers are useful to reduce the switching losses on the switching devices. The total switching losses, however, may still the same or even increase.
  43. 43. Turn-ON and turn-OFF Snubbers
  44. 44. Reducing Switching Losses• Switching losses can be reduced by using lossless snubbers. These snubbers, however, may make the converter circuit became complicated.• IGBTs may operate without snubbers.• GTOs and IGCTs usually need a turn-off snubber because of high tail current.• Switching losses can be reduced or even eliminated by using soft-switching techniques. These methods, however, may increase the required voltage and/or current ratings.
