Silicon Carbide-Based Circuit Breakers for High-Power DC Systems

2022-05-24T15:55:24-05:00

Circuit breakers are one of the most common components used in a short-circuit and overcurrent protection circuit, especially for higher-power systems. There are many considerations for designing in this kind of protection, and this article will show why it’s important to build in the protection, advantages of SiC-based solid-state circuit breakers, reference designs/circuits, tips on designing for transient or surge immunity, and explanations of how SiC provides an edge over traditional silicon (Si) devices and other circuit-breaker technologies...
