1.10 Protecting power devices in electric vehicle applications
2021年 3月 29日
As the electric vehicle market grows to rely more heavily on the electric motor, it becomes more important to protect the power devices in the inverter from damaging conditions and maintain safe operating conditions for the driver. This presentation will discuss the many features available in Texas Instruments isolated gate drivers that allow easier implementation of ASIL rated applications and protect power devices from damaging conditions. Power device protection becomes especially important with the acceptance of SiC devices and the associated challenges of protecting these devices vs. the traditional IGBT implementation.
