Abstract

The insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) is being used for large variety of applications that do not fit into the previous chapters. Smart homes are being enabled with improved communication systems and power management using IGBTs. The IGBT is used to control heating in printing and copying machines to fix the toner. Inductive power transfer systems using IGBTs are used for stage lighting and embedded electric vehicle chargers. The power supply for airport security scanners uses IGBTs to regulate the X-ray tube voltage for high-quality imaging. Pulse power supplies utilize IGBTs to generate very high voltages for ion implantation and particle accelerators. The European Council for Nuclear Research ...
