How can we determine the dead-time?

To prevent a short-circuit in the upper and lower arms, it is necessary to set an on-off timing delay between the several arms. During this time period both devices are switched off. The dead-time needs to be set so that it is generally longer than the switching time of the IGBT (toff max.).
For details, refer to Application Manual Chapter 7.
