Abstract

Wide band-gap devices are making inroads in the power converters scenario, and specific circuits to drive these components are actively under development. The purpose of this paper is to analyze, from the stability and dynamic performance point of view, a Voltage Controlled Power Resistor (VCPR), that can be used to control the gate resistance of the device driver with values over a continuous range. Parametric analysis, SPICE simulations and experimental outcomes are presented, in order to determine circuit characteristics. Results show that the proposed topology is stable under a wide range of electric parameters, and suggest that the circuit bandwidth can be tuned in order to benefit from the VCPR in a wide band-gap device gate driver.
