How does overvoltage protection work with the aid of avalanche diodes?

Created by Jürgen Gerber, Product Group Manager Discrete Semiconductors at Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH and Jochen Krieger, Senior Manager Application and Product Engineering - Diodes Division - TVS & ESD Protection Diodes & EMI Filter, Vishay |   Rutronik

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.
