Principal Investigator: Paul Grems G. Duncan, President
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
65892 It is well known that majority of power line disturbances are ¿voltage sags¿ and momentary outages. Existing power converters/inverters are large, expensive, difficult to control, exhibit slow switching speeds, have poor reverse bias safe operating area, and require high gate currents to… More

Low-Cost, Modular, Highly Reliable Inverter

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: William L. Cornwell
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
72743S03-I Today¿s current inverter technologies for electric and hybrid-electric vehicle systems do not lend themselves well to modularity. The inverter designs tend to be application-specific, which translates into larger inverter sizes and/or increased development cost. Also, the accompanying… More
