PROJECTS  Development of ABB IGCT Power Semiconductors

All ABB IGCTs (Integrated Gate-Commutated Thyristors) are press-pack devices. They are pressed with a relatively high force onto heatsinks which also serve as electrical contacts to the power terminals. The IGCT's turn-on/off control unit is an integral element of the component.

A2Z Consulting CEO, Dr. Adrian Zuckerberger, was involved in the development of ABB IGCTs and led development of Medium Voltage Variable Frequency Drives based on the IGCT technology.
