Hello,

is it possible to "rank" the conduction loss of Thyristor vs. Diode. vs. IGBT vs. SiC-MOSFET (e.g. SiC-MOSFET has a higher conduction loss than Thyristor than Diode)? Or is this different for each component and you have to calculate every component on its own?

If it is possible to rank the conduction losses, is there a specific value between each loss (e.g. Thyristors have a loss 2 times higher than the loss of Diodes)?

Thanks for your help!

Best wishes.

Dear @SchererF ,
Greetings from Infineon,
Thanks for posting your query in Infineon Community.

It is not straight forward to rank the conduction losses among the power electronic devices.
It depends upon several factors such as operating current, operating voltage, and the  applications used.


Kindly let us know if you have any further queries.

Best regards,
Santhosh Kumar
