ECPE Workshop: Power Semiconductors in Medium Voltage Applications - SiC vs. Silicon

The energy transition with a distributed generation of renewable energies as well as e-mobility lead to new challenges for power generation, transmission and distribution. Hence, the medium-voltage grid and direct medium-voltage applications are becoming increasingly important. Requirements for higher energy efficiency and significant emission reduction offer new develop-ment opportunities for power electronics in the medium voltage range in many applications including high-power loads in the railway and industrial sectors.
Power semiconductors have always been a nucleus for innovations in power electronics. Beside the Si power semiconductors, the main focus of the Workshop will be on SiC devices with reverse voltages blocking voltages of 3.3 kV up to the range of > 10 kV and their future applications.
In addition to power semiconductors and the inductive components, the workshop also deals with questions of assembly and interconnection technology for HV components and power modules, with medium voltage converters as well as power electronic applications in power generation and distribution, in traction and industry, in e-mobility and data centres, with a special focus on DC grids. Interesting topics are related to isolation technologies for high dv/dt, measurement and testing, modeling and simulation.
