Trench-Gate IGBT 3D
Application ID: 101501
In this second half of a two-part example, a 3D model of a trench-gate IGBT is built by extruding the 2D model from the first half. Unlike the 2D model, now it is possible to arrange the alternating n+ and p+ emitters along the direction of extrusion as in the real device. This more realistic arrangement leads to better quantitative agreement with experimental data. The computed collector current density as a function of the collector voltage agrees reasonably well with the published result.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
