IGBT Recommendations

Original poster: "Andrew Bonnell" <andrewbonnell@xxxxxxxxx>

Does anybody have any recommendations for an IGBT to use in an ~1800VA DRSSTC?
On a DRSSTC is it better to go with a higher voltage to get lower losses due to I*I*R? On Richie Burnett's page, his experiments with a DRSSTC (driven by MOSFETs) showed that when the bridge is fed with a half wave from a half wave rectifier, the TC buzzes at 60 Hz and when it is fed full rectified power, it buzzes at 120 Hz. If you place an IGBT on the power rails feeding the bridge, could you make the TC play music by pulsing power to the bridge through the IGBT to feed the bridge a wave form of a specific frequency to make the coil "buzz" out the music so to speak?
