A New Approach to Circuit Breaker Design Using Silicon Carbide Switches - Nov 21
   October 25, 2021
 
Mechanical circuit breakers can be low cost with minimal losses, but they operate slowly and wear out. Solid state versions overcome the problems and are becoming increasing viable as replacements at ever-high currents. This article discusses the issues and introduces
a new Silicon Carbide semiconductor, the DG-FET as an enabler for better performance...
