Investigation into stable failure to short circuit in IGBT power modules
Yaqub, Imran (2015) Investigation into stable failure to short circuit in IGBT power modules. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This doctoral thesis investigates modes of failure of the IGBT power module and how these modes can be coerced from an open circuit failure mode (OCFM) to a stable short circuit failure mode (SCFM) by using different interconnect technologies and material systems. SCFM is of great importance for a number of applications where IGBT power modules are connected in series string e.g. high voltage modular multi-level converters (M2LC) where one module failing to an OCFM can shut down the whole converter.
