Overvoltage can always occur when an IGBT is switched on and off at high speed in a high-performance application. For instance, when switching off the load current circuit, the collector-emitter voltage goes up abruptly, reaching very high peaks. Overvoltage caused by switching events can severely damage or even destroy switching transistors.
