A Hybrid Switching Inverter for High -Efficiency Traction Motor Drives

Juluri Shiva Prasad | Narra Narender Reddy [2]

Abstract: This paper presents a hybrid switch which parallels a power MOSFET and an insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) as the main switch of a zero-voltage switching (ZVS) inverter. In this combination MOSFET is conducting in the low-current region and the IGBT conducting in the high-current region, and the soft switching avoids the reverse recovery problem during the device turn-on. A custom hybrid switch module has been developed for a variable-timing-controlled coupled-magnetic-type ZVS inverter with a nominal input voltage of 325 V and the continuous output power of 30 kW for a traction motor drive. The results of the hybrid-switch-based inverter with the total loss shows that the inverter achieves 99 % efficiency at the nominal condition and demonstrate ultrahigh-efficiency operation over a wide load range. At 375-V input, the maximum measured efficiency through temperature projection and loss separation analysis is 99.3 %.
