Abstract: This paper compares Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFET and IGBT based electric vehicle (EV) traction inverters by considering the cost and efficiency of these two inverters. Commercially available SiC MOSFET CCS50M12CM2 (1200V / 50A) from Cree and IGBT PM50RL1A120 (1200V / 50A) from Powerex are modeled in detail in PSIM to obtain efficiency curves of inverters under different load …
A critical look at the SiC, high-voltage MOSFET - News
What''s more, the SiC MOSFET has a higher junction built-in voltage, so, compared to its silicon cousin, it has extra protection against parasitic n-p-n transistor failure modes during switching. Due to these characteristics, much higher currents are needed to forward bias the n-source, due to the higher built-in voltage of the wide bandgap material.
