Electrical characteristics of MOSFETs (Charge Characteristic Qg/Qgs1/Qgd/QSW/QOSS)

Gate charge
Because the Gate (G) input terminal of a MOSFET is insulated, the amounts of charge Q seen from the Gate are important characteristics. Figure 1.5 illustrates the definitions of gate charge characteristics.
Total gate charge Qg
The amount of charge to apply voltage (from zero to designated voltage) to gate
Gate-source charge 1 Qgs1
The amount of charge required for a MOSFET to begin to turn on (before dropping drain-source voltage)
Gate-drain charge Qgd
The amount of gate charge charged in the Miller plateau
Gate switch charge Qsw
The amount of charge stored in the gate capacitance from when the gate-source voltage has reached Vth Until the end of the Miller plateau
Output charge Qoss
Drain-source charge

The definition of the gate charge amount is shown in the figure below.
