This paper analyzes factors determining power density in high current and high MVA power electronic converters & solid-state switches and recommends practical approaches to increase power density. For years increase in power density was the result of improvements in the power semiconductors density, which is the determining factor in medium power applications at voltages below 1 KV. However in most high current & medium voltage applications, the power density is more influenced by withstanding…
