Our High Current Switching test bench (HCSW) is now operational! This one is integrated to the Power switches characterization platform, which can be used to fully characterize power switches.
With the “High Current Switching test bench”, SuperGrid Institute can characterize power semiconductors in commutation. In other words, we can:
- estimate switching losses for different commutation modes (spontaneous & controlled);
- evaluate the power switches and its commutation cell in realistic conditions.
Our High Current Switching test bench is equipped with a oil based thermal control system: a system used to heat up the components and get a stable temperature during the characterization.
