The design of a 200-A, all-SiC power-module-based on bipolar junction transistor devices is described, and the impact of the module is assessed on the performance of a 50-kW dc-dc converter for electric vehicle applications, particularly the overall weight and efficiency. Using a hard-switching dual-interleaved topology, which has proven high efficiency and high-power density capability, the operation of a 50-kW, 75-kHz all-SiC converter is compared with that of an insulated-gate bipolar… CONTINUE READING
