Abstract in another language

Increasing the channel width of an IGBT is an obvious way to lower the Vce;sat value without any influences on the switching losses of the device. Consequently, the achievable benefit of IGBTs is limited due to the corresponding increase of the desaturation current, which threaten the short circuit robustness.
This paper presents the benefits of an IGBT which could be realized, if the feature of a low desaturation current is abandoned and the channel width is increased to a maximum.
