Increasing the Power Density and Efficiency of Double Conversion UPS with Silicon Carbide Power Modules

In this presentation, Wolfspeed will demonstrate the system level improvements for Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS) and other grid tied systems that can be achieved with the latest innovations in Silicon Carbide Power Modules. We will design a 200 kW system and analyze each element of a UPS system including: Active Front End (AFE), battery DC-DC converter, and Inverter.

We will illustrate how the latest SiC MOSFET technology can increase the switching frequency 3x compared to IGBTs enabling smaller, cheaper passives while simultaneously increasing efficiency.

Attendees will learn:

  • 200KW UPS System Design
  • How Silicon Carbide Power Modules can increase efficiency in UPS Systems
  • How Silicon Carbide Power Modules can lower system costs in a UPS System
