    Hello,

    What is exactly a snubber circuit?
    Is it a protective circuit?
    Do i require it for all the switches (IGBT/MOSFET/SCR)?
    I have seen some power electronics circuits without snubbers. Iam confused.
    A small electromagnetic relay is a switch. Why dont we need a snubber for that?

    How can i know where to use it? And how can i calculate the component values?

    Sorry for those lot of questions..

    thankyou.
