Achieve reliable and fast short circuit protection (SCP) on SiC power devices using isolated gate drivers, and obtain a panoramic view of the short-circuit protection needs for SiC used in EV and renewable energy applications.

In this webinar we will discuss protection requirements from a SiC device perspective and explain the gate driver timing and functionality requirements. We will also present bench test results using ADI isolated gate drivers to protect Wolfspeed SiC power modules.

Attendees will learn:

  • Protection requirements of SiC power devices
  • An appreciation of the roles of individual blocks in isolated gate drivers that aid in protecting the SiC device
  • Design techniques for fault detection loops to ensure reliable operation
  • How to set accuracy expectations of DESAT based protection for SiC
