Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


A new method has been used to design a power semiconductor device which combines IGBT switching and thyristor on-state characteristics. A single gate signal controls the switching and triggers the transitions between the IGBT and thyristor modes of operation. This paper discusses single-gated devices with multiple modes and aspects of their switching behaviour
