    How can I fix plateau in this gate signal, my input has dead time but you see at the output there is no dead time , how can I fix it

    hi karas,
    Please post your LTS asc file for the circuit, so that we can run it.
    Labels identifying the Nodes would help.

    Will the gate withstand 24V peak?

    The capacitors in series with diodes look problematic to me. How are the caps discharged?

    Try this circuit:

    This Zener to limit the voltage on the gate , and the capacitor discharge through the schottky diode

    I did try it , and is not working(try to do it at high frequency), I think at the dead time we have to reset the transformer and I am trying to figure how to do this

    Thanks, can you do it please with 2 secondaries, the rail voltage is about 750Vdc so i need high isolation between the 2 gates

    Danko, may I ask what program you are using to make the simulation, please?

    Yes, it is:

    In reality, you should to force transistor to close, by negative voltage on gate:

    Maybe very well working circuits below will useful for you:

    Research the www.danyk.cz/svar_en.html page how effectively produce the gate discharging by circuit very similar to Your`s. Take off the part after slash and find a wide spectra of materials explaining what and why. The mosfets and igbt`s are just like a fragile wife who dont give before feel comfortable. And bad gate de-lading means feel very uncomfy.

    Yes, 10W, if you like to use Zeners, but only 1...2W without Zeners View attachment 145505 View attachment 145506
    Edit: And it depends on voltage of secondary winds. If Zener voltage will a bit higher than secondary wind voltage, then no excessive power.

    In attachment - simulated 50kHz inverter, 1500V peak-peak, 4A current in load 185Ohm.
    Two circuits, one - simple, based on View attachment 145506
    Works good.
    Second - based on www.danyk.cz/svar_en.html
    Up to 21A current throughout transistors Q1, Q2 at a time.
