Modeling of IGBT Modules with Parasitics Elements Evaluation
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The goal of this report is the development of a PSpice based modeling platform for the evaluation of power IGBT modules to be used in HVDC and FACTS applications. The use of simulation tools is of great value in the process of developing new power electronic devices and new converter topologies. By means of this proper model platform, new design ideas and better understanding of devices behavior and related physical phenomena of the modules can be easily estimated and the outcome is reducing the demand of extensive laboratory testing.
Particularly important is the choice of a proper model capable of fast simulation times and adequate accuracy, while a challenging issue is to guarantee the convergence of such models given the hard nonlinearities and multiple cross-references involved. The choice of a Spice based simulation platform consisting in a circuitously based model, allows us to evaluate the characteristics of each module as a function of parameters like a dc-voltage, load current, stray inductance and gate driving.
