Operating Parameters
Derating Factors
To ensure IGBT module reliability, follow each of the derating factors listed below.
5.1.1 Voltage
Maximum peak voltage should not exceed 80% of the rated voltage V
CES
, and the DC voltage should
not exceed 50 to 60% of V
CES
.
Note:
Equation 1:
Use Equation 1 to calculate the rated voltage of an IGBT module
for a given AC line input voltage at the inverter.

5.1.2 Current
Maximum repetitive current peak value I
p
should not exceed 70 to 80% of the rated DC current I
C
.
Because faults, such as load short circuit, are taken into account for the one millisecond rated current
I
cp
, this value cannot be used repeatedly.
Note:
Equation 2:
Use Equation 2 to calculate the rated current of an IGBT module
based on the peak current of the inverter.

5.1.3 Temperature
To use the overload of the motor, case temperatures should not exceed 100
o
C, and the junction
temperature should be no more than 70 to 80% of the rated maximum.
