Systems Made Simple Part 2: Gate Drivers in Solar Inverters

Regardless of the type of switches implemented in solar inverters, all of them need an analog or digital controller that acts as the brain of the system. Since power switches are gate-controlled and highly capacitive in nature, a gate driver device is required to enable FAST turn-ON & turn-OFF of the power switch and to help reduce power dissipation during switching. Learn how to mitigate the…
