1 Answer

Answer :

Power MOSFET have high turning on and turning off capability high switching speed of MOSFET is due to the high rate of change of drain voltage. The switching losses of power MOSFET is low means MOSFET provide higher efficiency for higher frequency. But the conduction losses of power MOSFET is more. The power MOSFET is the positive temperature coefficient device means as the temperature increases the internal resistance of MOSFET will also increase. The voltage and current rating of power MOSFET is low. The conduction voltage of MOSFET is higher than bipolar.

In case of BJT, the switching losses are more but conduction losses are less. BJT provides more efficiency at a lower frequency. Hence, operating frequency of power MOSFET is higher than that of power BJT.

Description : Explain the formation of parasitic BJT and parasitic diode in Power MOSFET. Can parasitic diode be used in same power electronics applications?

Answer : Parasitic Diode: The parasitic diode is in between drain and source. The MOSFET structure itself contains parasitic diode or body drain diode. This parasitic diode allows the reverse flow of current when the ... of MOSFET as a BJT collector. Parasitic BJT operates in the cut-off region.

Answer : Because it has a higher switching frequency and heat tolerance.
