This book is dedicated to power electronics switches and their uses. It begins by dealing with power MOSFETs and IGBTs, including series and parallel associations. Discussion is given to silicon carbide, its potentiality for power electronics applications and its present limitations, as well as capacitors, key passive components in power electronics, followed by a modeling method enabling the computation of stray inductances, which is necessary for the precise simulation of switching waveforms. The book concludes by examining the behavior of the switching cell and thermal behavior associated with power switches, and the proposes some interesting possibilities associated with power electronics integration.
