MULTIPORT DC-DC CONVERTER

MULTIPORT DC-DC CONVERTER

We developed a silicon carbide-based multiport DC-DC converter which controls power flow between multiple energy sources.

Silicon carbide devices operate at a much higher frequency than equivalent silicon components with a significant reduction in switching losses. This has resulted in a significant reduction in the size of the magnetic components and has enabled the converter to a class leading efficiency of 98.7%, a gravimetric power density of 10.5kW/kg and a volumetric power density of 20kW/litre.
