Improving Energy Efficiency in Industrial Applications with Silicon Carbide
Industrial applications such as server power supplies, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), and motor drives consume a significant portion of the world’s power. Thus, any increase in efficiency in industrial power supplies will substantially reduce a company’s operating costs. Combined with greater power density and better thermal performance, the demand for high-efficiency power supplies is increasing exponentially. The unique attributes of silicon carbide power devices promise to radically reduce the amount of energy the world consumes. Wolfspeed SiC provides the industry-leading switching speeds, high performance, and superior thermal capacity power system designers need to build energy conserving power infrastructure.
