  1. 1. High-Efficiency SiC Power Conversion : Base Drivers for Bipolar Junction Transistors and Performance Impacts on Series-Resonant Converters

    Author : Georg Tolstoy; Hans-Peter Nee; Stig Munk-Nielsen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Silicon Carbide; Bipolar Junction Transistor BJT ; Resonant converter; Series-resonant converter SLR ; Base drive circuits; High- Efficiency Converters; High-Frequency Converters; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to bring an understanding to the silicon carbide (SiC) bipolar junction transistor (BJT). SiC power devices are superior to the silicon IGBT in several ways. They are for instance, able to operate with higher efficiency, at higher frequencies, and at higher junction temperatures. READ MORE

  4. 4. A new Auxiliary Converter Topology with SiC Components for Railway Applications

    Author : LUYU WANG; Industriell elektroteknik och automation; []
    Keywords : Auxiliary converter; Multilevel converter; ; Silicon Carbide transistors;

    Abstract : Smaller size and lower weight are always the targets of the power electronic product development. This work introduces two new topologies of auxiliary converters which have the feature of fewer components and fewer number of energy conversion stages comparing with the conventional auxiliary converter used in railway applications.
