What's Advanced Power Electronics?

Power Conversion and Inverters, Power Devices



  • Main components of a power converter are power switching devices.

  • Compared with Si power devices, Wide band-gap semiconductor (WGS) power devices represented by SiC have superior characteristics such as higher voltage, lower loss, higher speed, higher temperature operations.

  • SiC power devices are the most suitable for next-generation power converter application, their early establishment is important for the enforcement of international competition.
