In this brief, we present the experimental and simulated characteristics of a new power semiconductor device called MOS-gated thyristor (MOS-GTO) for high-power applications. The results are presented for a 1.2-kV device and subsequently scaled up to 4.5-kV blocking voltage. The excellent ON-state voltage and switching characteristics makeMOS-GTO a very promising device for high-voltage power applications.

Abstract

In this brief, we present the experimental and simulated characteristics of a new power semiconductor device called MOS-gated thyristor (MOS-GTO) for high-power applications. The results are presented for a 1.2-kV device and subsequently scaled up to 4.5-kV blocking voltage. The excellent ON-state voltage and switching characteristics makeMOS-GTO a very promising device for high-voltage power applications.
