SiC-JFET based Matrix Converter
Presentation at the PCIM 2011
This demonstrator is not a commercially available product. It is a prototype to hint out, how compact power electronic can become in future, demonstrating a power density of 20kVA/Liter and a power-to-weight ratio of more than 10kVA/kg. It combines latest SiC-JFETs with newly designed driver circuitry and innovative thermal management in a matrix-converter setup, thus also eliminating thermally sensitive components like DC-link capacitors.
