The provided text discusses the gate unit reliability and outlines the goals and developments in high-voltage Insulated Gate Commutated Thyristors (IGCTs) and companion Fast Recovery Diodes (FRDs) for high-power applications. Here are the key points:

Gate Unit Reliability and Aging:

  1. Gate Circuit Components:
    • The turn-off circuit of the IGCT gate unit consists of parallel-connected electrolytic capacitors (voltage source) and parallel-operated MOSFETs to connect the gate to the cathode.
  2. Aging Considerations:
    • Aging of electrolytic capacitors (increased impedance due to dry-out of electrolytes) is considered in the design by redundancy.
    • Analyzed IGCTs after 15 years of field operation showed no degradation of the gate circuit impedance.
    • Field returns did not show device failure due to breakdown of an electrolytic capacitor or MOSFET in the turn-off circuit.

Development Goals:

  1. High Voltage IGCTs & FRDs:
    • Develop high-voltage IGCTs and companion FRDs for high-power applications (10-15 MW+).
    • Targeted applications include offshore wind and pulse power.
  2. Device Specifications:
    • Targeting 10kV devices.
    • IGCTs and FRDs with 85mm pole piece in L-package diode.
    • IGCTs with 5.3kV, 2kA, 125°C SOA (Safe Operating Area) and soft reverse recovery.
    • RC-IGCT (for >10MW) and A-IGCT (for >15MW) are mentioned.
  3. FRD Platform Improvement:
    • Improvement program for an existing FRD platform, adding a large-sized product.
    • New generation companion diode for next-gen3 asymmetric IGCT allows full utilization of IGCT.
    • New large-size FRD used in HVDC/DC breaker as a free-wheeling diode.
    • Samples available in Q2/2021.
  4. Performance Optimization:
    • Designed and optimized for extreme low conduction losses and highest turn-off current capability (up to 6kA).
    • Record low on-state losses below 1 kW at 1 kA, enabling applications with the highest efficiency ratings.
    • Optimized for DC Solid State Circuit Breaker (SSCB) applications.
  5. Application in SSCB:
    • SSCB allows interrupting fault currents faster than traditional electro-mechanical breakers (100 times faster).
  6. Availability:
    • Samples of the new FRD platform are available now.
