Can I replace MOSFET with IGBT in Solid State Tesla Coil? Answered

I have a half-bridge circuit. It using IRFP460.
But I want turn this driver to high power version. So I request some help!
Can I use IGBT for half-bridge circuit?


MOSFETs are often used because of their simple gate drive
requirements. Since the structure of both devices are so
similar, the change to IGBTs can be made without having to
redesign the gate drive circuit. IGBTs, like MOSFETs, are
transconductance devices and can remain fully on by keeping
the gate voltage above a certain threshold

Only if you change the driver circuit for the "base"
