Flying Capacitor Topology for Ultra Efficient Inverter Applications - Nov/Dec 2020
High efficiency and reduced effort for filtering are the main arguments for three-level (3L) topologies. Actually, there are several 3L topologies used in solar applications. The limitation of all Neutral Point Clamped (NPC) three-level topologies is the fact that a 150 Hz ripple has to be filtered with DC capacitors, which are independent on the frequency of the Pulse With Modulation (PWM). With high frequency and utilization of SiC semiconductors it is possible to reduce the size of the output

GaN in Space Applications - Nov/Dec 2020
Gallium nitride power device technology enables a new generation of power converters in space operating at higher frequencies, higher efficiencies, and greater power densities than ever achievable before. GaN power devices can also exhibit superior radiation tolerance compared with Silicon MOSFETs depending upon their device design.

Maximize Gains Using Miniaturized PoL Converters - Nov/Dec 2020
System power requirements today are challenging, with designers needing to overcome issues such as multiple supply voltages, voltage sequencing, high transient load currents, and excessive heat. Rather than address these problems at the system power supply, it is more beneficial to introduce measures at the PCB (printed circuit board) level, meaning some form of point-of-load (PoL) converter is required...

Evaluating Three Key Pieces of a SiC Total System Solution - October 2020
Following a rapid expansion of SiC product options, the industry’s next challenge is simplifying the design-in process for end users. Power system developers need holistic solutions that address not only typical design elements individually but which recognise the importance of their interactions...
