The full form of IGBT is Insulated gate Bipolar Transistor. It is a three terminal power semiconductor device basically used as an electronic switch which can maintain high efficiency during fast switching. It has been utilized in many recent appliances:
Electric cars, trains, variable-frequency drives (VFDs), variable speed refrigerators, air-conditioners, stereo systems with switching amplifiers and even lamp ballasts and vacuum cleaners.
