Application of Gate Drivers for 3-Level NPC-2 Power Modules with Reverse Blocking IGBTs

PCIM Asia June 2014
3-level topologies are typically based on the classical neutral-point-clamped (NPC1) topology with four power switches (IGBT) per half-bridge and two additional clamping diodes. A variant of this topology is known as the NPC2 topology which uses two IGBTs per half-bridge and two IGBTs connected as a common collector configuration in the clamping path. This paper discusses these differences and provides proven solutions that enable standard gate drivers to be adapted for use in NPC2 topology designs with RB-IGBTs.
