Type R1446NC12x Issue 2 Page 2 of 12 August 2012 Distributed gate thyristor type R1446NC12x Notes on Ratings and Characteristics 1.0 Voltage Grade Table Voltage Grade 12 VDRM VDSM VRRM V 1200 VRSM V 1300 VD VR DC V 810 2.0 Extension of Voltage Grades This report is applicable to other and higher voltage grades when supply has been agreed by Sales/Production. 3.0 Extension of Turn-off Time This Report is applicable to other tq/re-applied dv/dt combinations when supply has been agreed by Sales/Production. 4.0 Repetitive dv/dt Higher dv/dt selections are available up to 1000V/µs on request. 5.0 De-rating Factor A blocking voltage de-rating factor of 0.13%/°C is applicable to this device for Tj below 25°C. 6.0 Rate of rise of on-state current The maximum un-primed rate of rise of on-state current must not exceed 1500A/µs at any time during turn-on on a non-repetitive basis. For repetitive performance, the on-state rate of rise of current must not exceed 1000A/µs at any time during turn-on. Note that these values of rate of rise of current apply to the total device current including that from any local snubber network. 7.0 Square wave ratings These ratings are given for load component rate of rise of forward current of 100 and 500A/µs. 8.0 Duty cycle lines The 100% duty cycle is represented on all the ratings by a straight line. Other duties can be included as parallel to the first. 9.0 Maximum Operating Frequency The maximum operating frequency is set by the on-state duty, the time required for the thyristor to turn off (tq) and for the off-state voltage to reach full value (tv), i.e. f max = 1 tpulse + tq + tv Data Sheet. Type R1446NC12x Issue 2 Page 3 of 12 August 2012 Distributed gate thyristor type R1446NC12x 10.0 On-State Energy per Pulse Characteristics These curves enable rapid estimation of device dissipation to be obtained for conditions not covered by the frequency ratings. Let Ep be the Energy per pulse for a given current and pulse width, in joules Let Rth(J-Hs) be the steady-state d.c. thermal resistance (junction to sink) and TSINK be the heat sink temperature. Then the average dissipation will be: W AV = E P ⋅ f and TSINK (max .) = 125 − (W AV ⋅ Rth ( J − Hs ) ) 11.0 Reverse recovery ratings (i) Qra is based on 50% Irm chord as shown in Fig. 1 below. Fig. 1 (ii) Qrr is based on a 150µs integration time. 150 µs i.e. Qrr = ∫i rr .dt 0 (iii) K Factor = t1 t2 12.0 Reverse Recovery Loss 12.1 Determination by Measurement From waveforms of recovery current obtained from a high frequency shunt (see Note 1, Page 5) and reverse voltage present during recovery, an instantaneous reverse recovery loss waveform must be constructed. Let the area under this waveform be E joules per pulse. A new heat sink temperature can then be evaluated from the following: TSINK ( new ) = TSINK ( original ) − E ⋅ (k + f ⋅ Rth ( J − Hs ) ) where k = 0.227 (°C/W)/s E = Area under reverse loss waveform per pulse in joules (W.s) f = Rated frequency (in Hz) at the original heat sink temperature Rth(J-Hs) = D.C. thermal resistance (°C/W) Data Sheet. Type R1446NC12x Issue 2 Page 4 of 12 August 2012 Distributed gate thyristor type R1446NC12x The total dissipation is now given by: W (TOT) = W (original) + E ⋅ f 12.2 Determination without Measurement In circumstances where it is not possible to measure voltage and current conditions, or for design purposes, the additional losses E in joules may be estimated as follows. Let E be the value of energy per reverse cycle in joules (curves in Figure 9). Let f be the operating frequency in Hz TSINK (new ) = TSINK (original ) − (E ⋅ Rth ⋅ f ) Where TSINK (new) is the required maximum heat sink temperature and TSINK (original) is the heat sink temperature given with the frequency ratings. A suitable R-C snubber network is connected across the thyristor to restrict the transient reverse voltage to a peak value (Vrm) of 67% of the maximum grade. If a different grade is being used or Vrm is other than 67% of Grade, the reverse loss may be approximated by a pro rata adjustment of the maximum value obtained from the curves. NOTE 1- Reverse Recovery Loss by Measurement This thyristor has a low reverse recovered charge and peak reverse recovery current. When measuring the charge care must be taken to ensure that: (a) a.c. coupled devices such as current transformers are not affected by prior passage of high amplitude forward current. (b) A suitable, polarised, clipping circuit must be connected to the input of the measuring oscilloscope to avoid overloading the internal amplifiers by the relatively high amplitude forward current signal (c) Measurement of reverse recovery waveform should be carried out with an appropriate critically damped snubber, connected across diode anode to cathode. The formula used for the calculation of this snubber is shown below: R2 = 4 ⋅ Vr CS ⋅ di dt Where: Vr = Commutating source voltage CS = Snubber capacitance R = Snubber resistance 13.0 Gate Drive The recommended pulse gate drive is 30V, 15Ω with a short-circuit current rise time of not more than 0.5µs. This gate drive must be applied when using the full di/dt capability of the device. The duration of pulse may need to be configured with respect to the application but should be no shorter than 20µs, otherwise an increase in pulse current could be needed to supply the necessary charge to trigger the device.
