Implementing Gate Drivers for 3-Level NPC-2 Power Modules with Reverse Blocking IGBTs

27 October 2014

      Although 3 level converter topologies can lead to reduced total harmonic distortion and hence minimise the size and cost of filtering at the output stage, the best known configuration, NPC1 (Neutral Point Clamped), usually increases the number of switching devices (IGBTs and diodes) required, which adds to the complexity of the system. [...]
