Other than the conventional Fourier model, the carrier diffusion equation which retains the distributed nature of charge dynamics in power bipolar devices can be solved by a fast Finite Differential Method in PSPICE. The paper presents the physical basis and the practical consideration of the new modeling approach of PiN Diode and IGBT. The models are also verified by simulations and experiments.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
