How to set up RJH60F7BDQ IGBT?

Latest Updated:09/02/2013

Question:

In the datasheet for the RJH60F7BDQ IGBT, the current rating is 90 A and the peak current rating is 180 A. Vce = 14.2 V and Id = 100 A are flowing in an about 2 usec cycle. The current rating is exceeded only momentarily, and it is within the peak current rating. Is there any problem with such a setup?

Answer:

Please carry out derating of the area of safe operation (SOA) using case temperature Tc, and check whether the conditions used are in the SOA. In the datasheet, data for a 10-usec pulse width is shown for the area of safe operation. Please refer to this data.
