Active Front End Designs: Maximizing energy efficiency utilizing Silicon Carbide Power Modules
The latest innovations in silicon carbide power module technology maximize power density with higher power conversion efficiency, increase switching speeds, and reduce costs for Active Front End (AFE) designs. In this presentation, Wolfspeed will demonstrate the system benefits and best practices for active front end and other grid tied systems.
Attendees will learn how to:
- Evaluate system level design recommendations for next generation active front ends
- Upgrade power factor correction for demanding applications, including industrial automation, grid tied distribution, uninterruptable power supplies, motor traction drives, electric vehicle charging, and power supplies
- Compare silicon carbide power modules with silicon IGBT-based active front end systems (size, weight, efficiency, bi-directionality, and system-level cost savings)
- Accelerate the design process with Wolfspeed reference designs, system schematics, gate drivers, and evaluation kits
