I have been around this forum, and I am not sure I found my answer. I would like to realize a small and cheap AC switch. Relays being too big, I got interested in IGBT.
The goal is to turn on and off a standard 220Vrms AC with a maximum load of 32A. I figured out that IGBT could be a good alternative because of their high voltage/current performances. As speed is not a constraint here, it seems to be better than Mosfet.
Here is what I image I could do: There is no isolation in the 5V generator as no one is supposed to acces it (wireless control).
I would like to know if my circuit above is correct, and what would be the characteristics required for the IGBT to handle 220Vac 32A. For example, I had a look to this one: http://www.onsemi.com/PowerSolutions/product.do?id=TIG065E8 I feel it is a little too small to handle this job... but I can't see any solid reason in the datasheet showing that it cannot.
Thank you for any help.
