High-Frequency Power Converters [Precourt Institute for Energy Seminar]

Energy Seminar: High-Frequency Power Converters
Monday, January 9, 2017 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm
NVIDIA Auditorium, Jen-Hsun Huang Engineering Center
Juan Rivas-Davila (Stanford EE)
Abstract / Description: 

Juan's talk will cover how increases in switching frequency enable the miniaturization of power converters and new ways to fabricate and design power converters. It will address how these design techniques can be used in applications spanning biology, healthcare, space propulsion and automotive that use Wide Bandgap Power semiconductors at MHz frequencies. The talk will also discuss losses observed in GaN and SiC devices under high dv/dt conditions.
