Abstract

This paper presents the assembly and characterization of an all silicon-carbide (SiC) 3-to-1 phases matrix converter module. The integration approach is intended for harsh environment applications requiring high reliability and availability levels, such as renewable energies, solid-state transformation, smart grids, electric transport. SiC power MOSFETs dies are used to develop custom-packaged bi-directional switches, with an advanced approach aiming to optimize the electrothermal and electro-magnetic performance at switch level. Advanced cooling and packaging solutions at system level enable modularity with reduced impact of single component failure on the overall system, contributing to significantly reduced maintenance and repair costs and increased system availability.
