Phase 2
Fiscal Year: 2008
Title: High Temperature, High Power Density Silicon Carbide (SiC) Based Motor Drives for Aircraft Applications
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA8650-08-C-2861
Award Amount: $746,891.00
 

Abstract:

The terminal objective of this Phase II work will be the development of compact, fully integrated, high-temperature (250 degrees C), high-power-density SiC-based motor drives for avionics applications. The developed multi-chip power module (MCPM) will target an advanced motor drive application such as actuators (i.e., position control). The initial electrical rating targeted will be a 270 VDC input voltage system with power levels of up to 10 kW. The developed power module will integrate the following technologies: 1. SiC normally-off cascode power devices (provided by Microsemi) 2. APEI, Inc's new high-temperature integrated substrate MCPM technology 3. High temperature HTMOS SOI digital control electronics 4. TRS Technologies' wide-temperature high-voltage capacitors Several Phase II technology demonstration prototypes will be fabricated and fully tested. APEI, Inc. targets the achievement of a technology readiness level (TRL) of 6 at the end of this Phase II.
