Effect of turn on/off Rgon Control of dv/dt and di/dt with gate resistor Turn-on with nominal gate resistor (datasheet value): dv/dt = 0.9kV/µs di/dt = 6.4kA/µs I Cpeak = 2.4kA E on = 816mWs Turn-on with smaller than nominal gate resistor: dv/dt = 1.4kV/µs di/dt = 8.7kA/µs I Cpeak = 2.7kA E on = 544mWs Turn-on with larger than nominal gate resistor: dv/dt = 0.3kV/µs di/dt = 3.0kA/µs I Cpeak = 1.8kA E on = 2558mWs

6 Copyright © Infineon Technologies All rights reserved. Effect of turn on/off Rgoff Control of dv/dt and di/dt with gate resistor dv/dt is controllable with gate resistor. A larger resistor will result in a smaller dv/dt. di/dt is only controllable if the gate voltage doesn’t drop below the Miller Plateau level before IC starts to decrease. This is in general the case for a gate resistor value close to the datasheet value. With larger resistors a control of di/dt starts to work.

Rge vs. Cge Using Cge shows better Eon*di/dt coefficient Using Cge can significantly increase driving power P=∆U*(Qge+Cge*∆U)*f Using Cge can significantly increase driving peak current, require more powerful driver (output peak current capability) The tolerance of Cge should be taken care when used in IGBT paralleling application Using Cge may cause gate current oscillation, which leads to higher gate peak voltage.

13 Copyright © Infineon Technologies All rights reserved. Cable length influence Cable length (Lg) shows similar Eon*di/dt coefficient as Rge, This mainly due to Lg effect both during di/dt period and dv/dt period (same as Rge) Long cable significantly induce the turn on delay time Long cable is a EMI receiver, which can cause Vge spike and unstable. Loosing gate cable inductance will significantly increase Eon, which should especially paid attention in active adaptor design.

But loosing gate inductance should also be paid attention
