IGBTs are suitable for applications that have easy driving circuit and need high current. They are currently used in IH (Induction Heating) equipment adopting soft-switching under 50kHz, home appliances, vehicles, and a wide variety of AC drives. In future, their application fields are expected to expand to include various AC drives.
Note: IGBTs are less suitable for high-speed switching than MOSFETs because of bipolar operation.
