Use of a parallel MOSFET can provide a method of reducing the turn off loss associated with IGBTs and achieve a composite effect of low on-state loss and low switching loss. The technique discussed in this paper will be able to increase the effective minimum on-time of the device and this in itself can provide a limitation on the switching frequencies that can be achieved.
