For the purpose of this standard, the following definitions apply. 3.1 General terms 3.1.1 insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) transistor provided for power switching having a conduction channel and a PN junction and in which the current flowing through the channel and the junction is controlled by an electric field resulting from a voltage applied between the gate and emitter terminals NOTE With collector-emitter voltage applied the PN junction is forward biased. 3.1.2 N-channel IGBT IGBT that has one or more N-type conduction channels 3.1.3 P-channel IGBT IGBT that has one or more P-type conduction channels 3.1.4 collector current (I c ) (of an IGBT) direct current that is switched (controlled) by the IGBT 3.1.5 collector terminal, collector (C) (of an IGBT) for an N-channel (a P-channel) IGBT the terminal to (from) which the collector current flows from (to) the external circuit 3.1.6 emitter terminal, emitter (E) (of an IGBT) for an N-channel (a P-channel) IGBT the terminal from (to) which the collector current flows to (from) the external circuit 3.1.7 gate terminal, gate (G) (of an IGBT) terminal to which a voltage is applied against the emitter terminal in order to control the collector current 3.2 Terms related to ratings and characteristics; voltages and currents 3.2.1 collector (-emitter) breakdown voltage (V (BR)CES ) voltage between collector and emitter above which the collector current rises steeply, with gate to emitter short-circuited 3.2.2 collector (-emitter) saturation voltage (V CEsat ) collector-emitter voltage under conditions of gate-emitter voltage at which the collector current is essentially independent of the gate-emitter voltage 3.2.3 (gate-emitter) threshold voltage (V GE(TO) ) gate-emitter voltage at which the collector current has a specified low (absolute) value 3.2.4 collector (-emitter) cut-off current (I CES ) collector current at a specified collector-emitter voltage below the breakdown region and with gate to emitter short-circuited 3.2.5 gate leakage current (I GES ) leakage current into the gate terminal at a specified gate-emitter voltage with the collector terminal short-circuited to the emitter terminal3.2.6 tail current (I CZ ) collector current during the tail time 3.2.7 collector(-emitter) voltage with gate-emitter short-circuited (V CES ) collector-emitter voltage at which the collector current has a specified low (absolute) value with gate-emitter short-circuited 3.2.8 collector-emitter sustaining voltage (V CE*sus ) collector-emitter breakdown voltage at relatively high values of collector current where the breakdown voltage is relatively insensitive to changes in collector current, for a specified termination between gate and emitter terminals NOTE 1 The specified termination between gate and emitter terminals is indicated in the letter symbol by the third subscript ‘*’; see 4.1.2 of IEC 60747-7. NOTE 2 When necessary, a suitable qualifier is added to the basic term to indicate a specific termination between gate and emitter terminals. Example: Collector-emitter sustaining voltage with gate and emitter terminals short-circuited V CESsus . NOTE 3 The basic term may be shortened if the meaning is clear from the letter symbol used. Example: Collector-emitter sustaining voltage V CERsus . NOTE 4 This term is important for high-voltage devices, for example more than 4 kV. 3.2.9 electrostatic discharge voltage Under consideration. 3.3 Terms related to ratings and characteristics; other characteristics 3.3.1 input capacitance (C ies ) capacitance between the gate and emitter terminals with the collector terminal short-circuited to the emitter terminal for a.c 3.3.2 output capacitance (C oes ) capacitance between the collector and emitter terminals with the gate terminal short-circuited to the emitter terminal for a.c
