Transistor desaturation protection using the driver undervoltage lock out

Author
Organization
Abstract
In the gate drive circuits, a lot of choice is available in simple drivers in 8 pin devices. If also a desaturation protection is needed, the choice is greatly reduced. However, almost all gate drivers also have an undervoltage lock-out. The principle is to have a weak supply and to use pull the supply down for some time. It is mainly useful in converters which combine slow and fast switching devices and where the desaturation protection is done at the slow switching devices. It is intended to be applied in reliable but cost effective distributed generation converters.
