Component-evaluation facility for high current (200 A), short time (2µs) avalanche testing

Abstract : The new project for uranium enrichment SILVA (joint program CEA-COGEMA) needs specific power converters. These have been studied since 5 years by the Copper vapor laser Technology and Electrotechnique Laboratory of the C.E.A. in Pierrelatte. The aim of this laboratory consists in developing solid-state converters. In order to acquire a very good knowledge about components performances, tools were needed to characterize power components in extreme conditions. So a componentevaluation facility for high current short time avalanche testing has been created and is presented below.
