The More Electric Aircraft (MEA) concept has set tight constraints for power density and efficiency of electromechanical actuators in aircraft applications. In order to comply with these high power standards, new wide-bandgap (SiC and GaN) semiconductor devices may be exploited. Unfortunately, the extremely short switching times of these devices can easily trigger high frequency ringing voltage at motor terminal in cable-fed PWM motor drives due to pulse reflection. The resultant overvoltage… CONTINUE READING
