The paper presents the analysis of electrical and thermal characteristics of an IGBT5 module in accordance to design’s needs. The evaluation is done using double pulse test bench for single module, two modules in parallel and 3-phase stack system are investigated with inductive load. Design guides are recommended considering gate resistor, stray inductance, and current sharing during turn on and turn off process. Temperature rise and temperature distribution among components surrounding IGBT5 modules are analyzed with focus on liquid cooling in high power density designs. The output current capability of IGBT5 by extension of higher Tvj.op is demonstrated.
