FPES2020 - Future of Power Electronic Systems 2020

Project: Research project

Description

This project represents the consistent continuation to our activities for energy-efficient and
extremely compact power electronic energy conversion systems. The integration of widebandgap
(WBG) semiconductor technologies, such as Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium
Nitride (GaN), will allow significantly higher switching frequencies at the same or slightly
better energy efficiency. The use of these new semiconductor technologies in electrical
circuits with an increase of the switching frequency by a factor >10 demands a new
methodical approach – the holistic conceptual scheme.
This project aims for industrial research of the holistic conceptual scheme as well as SiCand
GaN-based demonstrators in order to evaluate the complied concepts.
