Conventional Solution

Conventional Solution: The figures above show the turn-off sequence during regular operation and desat condition, respectively. For these tests, di/dt has been controlled by use of R_g = 5.6Ω for regular operation and R_g = 10Ω for fault condition operation.
The turn-off loss is defined as the area under the curve where V_ds and I_ds overlap. 


In the case of a short circuit fault, where I_ds  reaches 2000A the V_ds attains a peak of 1200V (Maximum device rating). Note that the DC Link Voltage was only 500V, in which case the overshoot voltage is 700V!

AgileSwitch Solution: The EDEM3 Gate Driver was developed to optimally drive SiC Power Modules at much higher switching frequencies, and incorporates Two-Level Turn-Off, along with patent-pending Multi-Level Shut Down functions. For regular operation, using R_g = 0Ω, the V_ds peak = ~1100V, which equates to an overshoot voltage of 300V. In terms of turn-off losses, the AgileSwitch solution is 50% more efficient than the conventional solution.


In the event of a short circuit, the EDEM3 performs a three-step turn-off with the intermediate steps being 13V and 9V. While R_g = 0Ω, the V_ds peak is ~1000V, showing that the overshoot is only 500V.
