Award List:

6.5 kV Silicon Carbide Half-Bridge Power Switch Module for Energy Storage System Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: John Hostetler, Dr.
Award Amount: $999,999.00
Abstract:
As renewable resources such as wind and solar start to penetrate the electrical infrastructure, the transient behavior of these resources requires energy storage systems, such as batteries or flywheels, to buffer the fluctuations in output. Additionally, current silicon based… More

A Novel Compact and Reliable Hybrid Silicon/Silicon Carbide Device Module for Efficient Power Conversion

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Leonid Fursin, Senior Research Engineer
Award Amount: $124,123.00
Abstract:
United Silicon Carbide, Inc. proposes to develop a novel compact, efficient and high-temperature power module, based on unique co-packaging approach of normally-off silicon (Si) MOSFET with silicon carbide (SiC) normally-on power JFET in a cascode configuration. A much desired silicon MOS gate… More
