  • Patent number: 10526728
    Abstract: A manufacturing method of this invention includes: a step of slicing a silicon single crystal containing boron as an acceptor and obtaining a non-heat-treated silicon wafer, a step of determining a boron concentration with respect to the non-heat-treated silicon wafer, and a step of determining an oxygen donor concentration with respect to the non-heat-treated silicon wafer, in which a determination as to whether or not to perform a heat treatment at a temperature of 300° C. or more on the non-heat-treated silicon wafer is made based on a boron concentration determined in the step of determining a boron concentration, and an oxygen donor concentration determined in the step of determining an oxygen donor concentration. By this means, a wafer in which unevenly distributed LPDs that are present on the wafer are reduced is obtained.

  • Patent number: 10498251
    Abstract: Since a power converter including a modular multilevel converter uses a large number of cells each combining a plurality of switching elements and a DC capacitor, there is a problem of conduction loss due to the switching elements. The conduction loss is reduced by connecting a bypass circuit between terminals of each of the cells, controlling to open and close the switching element, and controlling to short-circuit the bypass circuit connected to the cell controlled to output zero voltage.
