Implements ideal IGBT, GTO, or MOSFET and antiparallel diode
Fundamental Blocks/Power Electronics
The IGBT/Diode block is a simplified mode of an IGBT (or GTO or MOSFET)/Diode pair where the forward voltages of the forced-commutated device and diode are ignored.
The internal resistance Ron of the IGBT device, in ohms (Ω).
The snubber resistance, in ohms (Ω). Default is
Set the Snubber resistance Rs parameter
inf to eliminate the snubber from the model.
The snubber capacitance in farads (F). Default is
Set the Snubber capacitance Cs parameter
0 to eliminate the snubber, or to
get a resistive snubber.
If selected, add a Simulink® output to the block returning the diode IGBT current and voltage. Default is selected.
Simulink signal to control the opening and closing of the IGBT.
The Simulink output of the block is a vector containing two signals. You can demultiplex these signals by using the Bus Selector block provided in the Simulink library.
The IGBT/Diode block implements a macro model of the real IGBT and Diode devices. It does not take into account either the geometry of the devices or the complex physical processes .
The IGBT/Diode block cannot be connected in series with an inductor, a current source, or an open circuit, unless its snubber circuit is in use.
