This paper presents an innovative concept implemented in an integrated power device to protect a discrete IGBT against the most critical test conditions such as overvoltage, overcurrent, and over temperature among others. This innovative integration approach solves the main issues of Single-Ended Parallel Resonant (SEPR) induction heating (IH) cookers, but opens opportunities for many other applications as well.
