    Gate x collector problem in IGBT

    Hello to all

    I had a problem with an inverter and i did not understand the problem:

    I have a inverter full bridge, input 125 Vcc and output 230 Vac 60 Hz 4 kVA, with insulation transformer.

    The operation frequency is 15 kHz and i used two IGBT FF200R12KT4 per channel.

    The gate driver is all discrete with a fast opto-coupler (i want to use a dedicated Infineon gate driver in the future), is a traditional circuit in my
    company and i need to use it. The power supply of the high side is a bootstrap circuit.

    But some inverters return for maintenance with the gate and collector of igbt in short circuit or with low resistance (about 10/20 ohms), in mostly cases
    the problem happens in the high side of IGBT.

    In the tests in production, everthing is ok, but the inverter is damaged in a short time of use by the consumer.

    What is the causes of this kind of problem in the gate/collector?

    Hi Marcelo,
    I have moved the topic in the power modules section.

    Please wait for a feedback of colleagues from Power Modules.
