Abstract:

Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc. (APEI, Inc.), and Moog, Inc. have allied to form a team devoted to the development of an intelligent, multi-channel, highly-miniaturized, high-temperature, Silicon Carbide (SiC) based Solid-State Energy Distribution Unit (SSEDU) to support emerging More Electric Aircraft (MEA) platforms. By the end of this proposed SBIR Phase II program, the APEI/Moog team will design, build, and test a multi-channel, fully-integrated, high-temperature capable (250°C), high speed (<100µs), SiC-based SSEDU demonstrator. The proposed SiC-based SSEDU (shown conceptually in Figure 1) combines APEI, Inc."s advanced high temperature SiC power module technology with the latest SiC devices (e.g., SiC DMOSFETs and TMOSFETs) in order to develop a SSEDU that follows a system architecture and vision provided by Moog. The initial platform targeted is the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).
