Smart Handling with Surge Current in PFC Using Silicon Carbide Schottky Diode


#1

The Silicon Carbide diodes are widely used in different applications with aim to reach high efficiency and power density. The optimization process behind CoolSiC™ G6, the new sixth generation of Silicon Carbide Schottky diodes reduced conduction losses, but at the same time caused the lowering of the surge current parameters in certain areas. However, the resulting performance of the CoolSiC™ G6 fulfills application requirements well.
