A network model for the insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) is presented for circuit analysis programs, such as PSPICE and SABER. The model contains a fast and rather accurate description of internal plasma dynamics, and accounts for shorted-anode lateral IGBT structures on Dielectric Isolated substrates. Good agreement has been obtained between measured data and simulation results.
