Efficient Voltage/Current Spike Reduction by Active Gate Signaling
A. Boora, Arash, Zare, Firuz, & Ghosh, Arindam (2009) Efficient Voltage/Current Spike Reduction by Active Gate Signaling. In Proceedings of the Electromagnetic Compatibility Symposium, Adelaide 2009, Lakes Hotel Resort, Adelaide.
This paper presents an Active Gate Signaling scheme to reduce voltage/current spikes across insulated gate power switches in hard switching power electronic circuits. Voltage and/or current spikes may cause EMI noise. In addition, they increase voltage/current stress on the switch. Traditionally, a higher gate resistance is chosen to reduce voltage/current spikes. Since the switching loss will increase remarkably, an active gate voltage control scheme is developed to improve efficiency of hard switching circuits while the undesirable voltage and/or current spikes are minimized.
