What is “short-circuit withstand capability”?

In the case of excess current due to an accident or abnormal operation of an inverter device, the time from the start of the short-circuit current until the IGBT breakdown is called the short-circuit withstand capability. The protection circuit has to be designed to detect excess current in a short time not exceeding the short-circuit time and to turn off the gate pulse.
