Abstract

Wide bandgap semiconductors have drawn a lot of attention in power applications due to their superior material properties, such as withstand to high critical electric field so the breakdown voltage is a minimum of 10X higher and thus can be thinner devices because of the 100 times smaller on-resistance than Si. Their significantly smaller conduction and switching losses compared to Si devices enable high-frequency switching leading to size decrease of the overall system. Smart control of wide bandgap devices, by utilizing advanced digital processorsfurther benefits power application by enabling designs with low parts count, high power density and a low BOM cost. Also, by supporting variable frequency operation and control methodologies, low EMI/RFI and high efficiency can be achieved. Presented will be some benefits of wide bandgap semiconductors and their control with Solantro’s advanced digital power processor (SA4041) for Smart Power Supplies, and other applications.

After the presentation, a tour showing the Smart Grid project together with Solantro’s Power development, operation and testing labs will be conducted. Solantro engineers will be happy to answer questions during the tour.

Abstract:

Application of power electronics is widespread in everyday life. Some applications are considered as “nice to have it;” in other cases, they are essential. This presentation discusses a wide variety of daily-used applications around the world. Also covered is an advanced topic, such as SMART Controller that today’s grid requires for voltage regulation, power factor regulation, unbalance voltage/current regulation, harmonic elimination and so on. A SMART Controller that is based on functional requirements and cost-effective solutions is derived from utilizing the best features of all the technical concepts that are developed until now. Final year students of electrical engineering undergraduate curriculum, post graduate students, researchers, academicians and utility engineers will benefit from attending this course. The participantswill hear from an expert who actually designed and commissioned a fewutility-grade SMART controllers since their inception in the 1990s.
