  • Publication number: 20210211123
    Abstract: With a method and an actuation arrangement for actuating a MOSFET, in particular a wide-bandgap semiconductor MOSFET, a monitoring process is performed to determine whether the body diode of the MOSFET is electrically conducting or blocking. If the body diode is electrically conducting, the MOSFET is activated, and if the body diode is electrically blocking, the MOSFET is actuated in response to an actuation signal generated based on the drain-source voltage and the direction and intensity of the drain-source current of the MOSFET.

  • Publication number: 20210119551
    Abstract: A semiconductor switching arrangement contains at least two half-bridge modules that each have an AC voltage connection, a positive DC voltage busbar, a negative DC voltage busbar, and at least one AC voltage busbar. The AC voltage connections are electrically interconnected by the AC voltage busbar. The aim is to improve the current distribution to the half-bridge modules arranged electrically in parallel. To this end, at least in the region of the AC voltage connections, the positive DC voltage busbar and the negative DC voltage busbar extend over an area containing the AC voltage busbar. Two of the at least two half-bridge modules are arranged adjacently such that the AC voltage surfaces of the two of the at least two half-bridge modules are adjacently arranged in relation to each other. Ideally a converter can contain at least one such semiconductor switching arrangement.

  • Patent number: 10680602
    Abstract: A control device for driving a bipolar switchable power semiconductor component is designed to apply an electrical voltage to a gate terminal of the power semiconductor component and to reduce the electrical voltage for turning off the power semiconductor component from a first voltage value to a second voltage value. The control device is designed, for turning off the power semiconductor component, firstly to reduce the electrical voltage from the first voltage value to a desaturation value and then to reduce the electrical voltage from the desaturation value to the second voltage value. The desaturation value is greater than a pinch-off voltage of the power semiconductor component.

  • Patent number: 10374521
    Abstract: A busbar arrangement for making electrical contact with a semiconductor module includes at least two busbars overlapping in an overlap region and electrically insulated from one another. Each busbar includes a web having a connection element, with the webs of the busbars being arranged without an overlap. The webs are oriented such as to define a first axis which runs through the connection element of an associated one of the webs and a point of a transition of the web to the overlap region of the busbar arrangement, and which intersects a second axis which is formed by a connection between two connection elements of the webs at an angle between 0° and 45°. The busbar arrangement includes an insulating region to reduce or prevent a current in the web in a direction perpendicular to the second axis. The overlap region and the webs are each located in one plane.

  • Patent number: 8783021
    Abstract: A method for operating an internal combustion engine is proposed, in whose exhaust gas zone a particle filter is disposed, which is cyclically loaded with particles and thermally regenerated, as well as an apparatus for the implementation of the method, which prevents thermal overload of the particle filter after turning off the internal combustion engine. A test is made when the internal combustion engine is turned off to determine whether an exothermal reaction takes place. Provided that an exothermal reaction takes place in the particle filter, a butterfly valve is closed, which prevents exhaust gas flow through the particle filter and, if the circumstances arise, a resulting oxygenation ingress in the particle filter.
