Rapid switching while handling high power levels

IGBTs (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors) are widely used in power electronics due to their ability to handle high voltages and currents. They combine the advantages of MOSFETs and bipolar transistors. IGBTs can switch on and off rapidly while handling large power levels. They are commonly used in motor drives, renewable energy systems, and industrial applications.

IGBT's from Hitachi Energy, ABB branded

Hitachi Energy's IGBT power modules are available from 1700 to 6500 volt as single, dual / phase-leg, chopper IGBT and dual diode modules. The high-power HiPak IGBT modules feature low losses combined with soft-switching performance and record-breaking Safe Operating Area (SOA). The newly introduced 62Pak and LoPak fast switching medium-power IGBT modules feature lowest switching losses, full 175 °C operation with full square SOA and standard package allowing drop-in replacement.

Press pack IGBT-modules for applications requiring series connection

StakPak is a family of high power insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) press-packs and diodes in an advanced modular housing that guarantees uniform chip pressure in multiple-device stacks.
Although the most common package for IGBTs is the isolated module, for applications requiring series connection, press-packs are preferred because of the ease with which they can be connected electrically and mechanically in series and because of their inherent ability to conduct in the shorted state – an essential feature where redundancy is required. Since IGBTs feature multiple parallel chips, there is a challenge - with conventional press-packs - in assuring uniform pressure on all chips. This problem was solved with a new patented spring technology. The StakPak, optimized for series connection, features a modular concept based on submodules fitted in a fiberglass reinforced frame, which allows a flexible realisation of a range of products for different current ratings and IGBT/diode ratios.
