On the Snubber Influence to the Switching and Conduction Losses in a Converter Using Switched Capacitor
The paper deals to design and to compute the snubber parameters influence on the switching and conduction losses of the transistors (IGBT) used as bidirectional switches in a converter with switched capacitor. The converter was modelled with difference equations, and the transistors during turn-on and turn-off processes were simulated by dynamically varying resistance models. The energy loss per switching, commutation time, the variation of the transistor voltage etc. and the influence of snubber parameters in each of these cases are shown in the context of a converter used as a 50Hz reactive power controller unit.
