22 kW Bi-Directional Active Front End (AFE)

Product Shot of Wolfspeed's Reference Design of a 22kW Bi-directional High Efficiency Active Front End (AFE) Converter
CRD-22AD12N
This reference design demonstrates the application of Wolfspeed’s 1200V C3M™ SiC MOSFETs to create a 22kW three phase bidirectional active front end (AFE) converter for electric vehicle (EV) on-board charger (OBC); off-board fast charging; and other industrial applications such as energy storage systems and three phase PFC power supplies. This design operates as a standalone AC/DC converter and is compatible with both single-phase and three-phase inputs. It has two operating modes: power factor correction (PFC) mode and inverter mode. In both modes; the DC bus voltage is flexible to demonstrate operation under a range of conditions. The use of 1200V C3M™ 32mOhm SiC MOSFETs in a TO- 247-4 package provides the best figure of merit (FOM) and reduces switching loss and cross talk. The design accomplishes
  • Peak efficiencies of 98.5% in both PFC and inverter mode
  • Power density of 4.6kW/L
This reference design is offered as a comprehensive design package which can be used as a starting point for new SiC designs.
