Implementation and testing of high-power IGCT-based cascaded-converter cells
2014 (English)In: Proc. Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition (ECCE), 2014 IEEE, IEEE , 2014, 5355-5359 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents the design and implementation of cascaded-converters cells based on integrated gate-commutated thyristor (IGCT) half-bridges. The cell design is presented together with a discussion of means to supply gate drive power and as well as the cooling of the cell components. Also, the operation of the cells in a high-power resonant test circuit is presented.
