A compact 3.3 kV / 1200 A SiC hybrid module which adopts silicon carbide Schottky barrier diodes (SiC-SBDs) and insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) has been developed. The size of the developed SiC hybrid module is 130 mm × 140 mm, approximately 2/3rd the size of a conventional IGBT module. Using this SiC hybrid module technology, a new traction inverter for railway applications has been developed. The new inverter has been reduced in weight by up to 40% compared to a conventional IGBT… CONTINUE READING
