Unpolarized series Rnubbers Used to protect diodes and thyristors Limiting the rateofrise (di/dt) of currents through the semiconductor device at device turnon Limiting the rateofrise (dv/dt) of voltages across the semiconductor device at device turnoff. Polarized Rnubbers Used as turnoff snubbers to shape the turnon switching trajectory of controlled switches. Used as overvoltage snubbers to clamp voltages applied to controlled switches to safe values. Limit dv/dt during device turnoff Shaping the switching trajectory of the device as it turns on/off 3.
