Abstract:

The objective of this proposal is to prove the feasibility of building high-power Solid State Relays (SSR) using power MOSFET technology, and specifically to produce a unit to replace the Navy N-130 relays. Power MOSFET technology affords the capabilityto switch high voltage power at high currents with little on-resistance.Solid State Relays built with MOSFETs offer a number of advantages over SSRs constructed from SCRs and TRIACs, such as: lower on resistance, better control signal isolation (coil tocontact isolation in relays), higher efficiency, and higher power handling capability.This research will result in the capability to produce efficient Solid State Relays that operate at higher voltages and currents than are currently available. These SSRswill have application in commercial power switching, telecom, and test equipment, where the use of electromechanical relays is currently the standard.
