HIGH VOLTAGE TRANSISTOR INVERTERS FOR A.C. TRACTION DRIVES

This paper describes the breakdown mechanisms occurring within transistors when operating at high voltage and power levels. It also describes techniques for using devices reliably at the extremes of their ratings. Techniques are also discussed for driving and protecting transistors operating in high power inverters; results are given for a recently constructed transistor inverter.
