Webinar: Silicon Carbide in Grid-Tied Applications
This seminar will cover the many benefits of Silicon Carbide (SiC) for grid tied applications ranging from 2.2 kW to over 200 kW with Wolfspeed discrete and power module products. The presenters will perform topology analysis to demonstrate the simplifications in system implementation Silicon Carbide can enable with fast, efficient switching performance compared to more complex, multi-level systems used with Si technology. Next, an overview of Wolfspeed simulation tools will demonstrate how to find the right parts to meet system needs. Finally, examples will show the audience practical examples of how to implement and get started with SiC including a 2.2 kW Totem Pole PFC and 22 kW Bi-directional active front end (AFE) with discrete devices. Utilizing Wolfspeed modules, a 25 kW Bi-directional AFE using Wolfpack modules and a 200 kW Bi-directional AFE using the XM3 module will be presented. With the topics covered, the audience will understand the advantages and capabilities Wolfspeed’s Silicon Carbide family can bring to their next system design. This webinar was part of the 2021 Wolfspeed Summer Series where Silicon Carbide experts covered a number of technical sessions intended to help design engineers build devices that will power tomorrow.
