SECTION-A
Q.1 State four important Features of IGBT. Draw symbol &amp; structure of
an IGBT. Explain principle of operation &amp; function of each layer.
15
OR
Q.1 Explain SCR Rating with details of current rating &amp; voltage rating.
What is the function of the drift layer in power BJT?
15
Q.2 Calculate the value of R1, R2 &amp; C for com-mutating the main SCR
when it is conducting a full current of fifteen Amps. The minimum
time for which this SCR which to be reverse biased for proper
commutation is 30 microsecond .it is given that the complementary
SCR will undergo natural commutation when its forward current
falls below the holding current of 3mA in a class C commutation
circuit .assume supply voltage to be 100 Volts.
