Tutorial Title: Advances in SiC Power Conversion Technologies for High-Frequency and High-Power Resonant DC-DC Converter Applications
High-frequency and high-power resonant DC-DC converters have been widely used in industrial application such as datacenter, electric vehicle, electrostatic precipitation, medical instruments, DC grid, etc. This tutorial focuses the recent advances of SiC power conversion technologies for high-frequency and high-power resonant DC-DC converters applications. The tutorial starts with the introduction of high-frequency and high-power resonant DC-DC converters including the basics, development history, the state-of-the-art technologies and industrial application trends. Secondly, the electromagnetic modeling and the current uniformity optimization of the multi-chip SiC MOSFET power module are provided in detailed. Then the analysis and suppression methodologies for the crosstalk between paralleled SiC MOSFETs are introduced. The steady-state modeling with phase shift and frequency modulation based on simplified state trajectory, and high accurate binary polynomial model are given. The generic steady-state circuit modeling methodologies for the modular SiC LCC resonant converter with multiple transformers and voltage multipliers are provided. Finally, the technology demonstrator of 50kW 300~500kHz Resonant DC-DC Converter with SiC MOSFET power devices is presented.
