The high side switch is what allows the regen to go to the batteries. During regen, low side IGBT off, and high side IGBT on with 100% duty.
I attached a captured image from the AEVA discussion.

The low side is D, high side is U. During regen, D is off, and U is On, as you describe above, right?

Would that put a large over-voltage on the battery terminals? Or would the voltage 'drop' across the IGBT with the large currents involved? Or did I hijack the wrong diagram?
