The surge current capability of the body-diode of SiC MOSFETs is experimentally analyzed in order to investigate the possibility of using SiC MOSFETs for HVDC applications. SiC MOSFET discrete devices and modules have been tested with surge currents up to 10 times the rated current and for durations up to 2 ms. Although the presence of stacking faults(More)
In this paper, the theoretical performance of ultra-high voltage Silicon Carbide (SiC) based devices are investigated. The SiC semiconductor device conduction power loss and switching power loss are predicted and compared with different modeling approaches, for SiC metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) up to 20 kV and SiC gate(More)
In this paper, a circuit level simulation model for SiC MOSFET power modules has been assessed. The static and dynamic characteristics of a 1.2 kV 800 A SiC MOSFET power module has been measured, simulated and verified in the PSpice circuit simulation platform. The SiC MOSFET power module is evaluated in two case studies, first where the power module is(More)
