Project runs from 06/15/2016 to 06/30/2020
The SuperCascode Power Module (SCPM) is a new approach to high voltage switches introduced by USCi. Inc. The SCPM uses a series string of SiC JFETs in a cascode configuration switched with a Si MOSFET. This one year project shall develop a medium voltage (MV) 6.5kV/50A/100A SCPM with extension to 200A, and a continuous Full-Power emulation Test Platform (FPTP) based on the ERC concept, which shall demonstrate full-power in-situ performance of the SCPM.
