Application and Performance Analysis of Silicon Carbide Pow_x005fer Electronic Devices in Power Systems

Shaohui Zhang


As a new wide-band semiconductor material emerging in recent years, Silicon carbide has the advantages of high voltage resist_x005fance, high temperature resistance, high power, high breakdown field strength and high thermal conductivity. This paper looks forward to the
current status and future development of its application in power system, and its rapid development will bring great influence to the power
system. Based on the booming development of silicon carbide materials, it can provide an insight into the possible future development trend
of power electronic devices.
