TurnON Power Dissipation and TurnOFF Power Dissipation
Supposing that the inverter phase output current rms value is I
0
, the output current peak value becomes
2 I
0
.
The average value of IGBT module turnON current and turnOFF current is, according to Equation 19:

(per pulse)
and specify them as E

and E
toff
