This 30-Minute presentation will explore power conversion system topologies and circuit designs for high-end residential and commercial heat pump and air conditioner systems. We’ll outline how replacing traditional silicon power components with Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide power components can improve system efficiency and system thermal management. Silicon Carbide power components also help reduce the overall system size, weight, performance, and cost. Wolfspeed reference hardware is available to help you with design implementation, optimization, and performance demonstration.

Attendees will aslo learn about:

  • Heat pump and A/C power system architectures and circuit design techniques
  • Details of power factor correction circuit options and trade-offs
  • A brief comparison to Gallium nitride (GaN) application.
