    Sure they do! We just don't have $10,000 to  spend on one!

    Well, since they seem to keep running fine with  blown components (the 
dead IGBTs fail as shorts), maybe keep lowering the  primary voltage as the BPS 
goes up, until they quit breaking. Count the  remaining good modules, and 
you'll have a data point on the safe operating  area boundary. :)
