Abstract
QorTek has teamed with a leading U.S. exponent of SiC processes and component fabrication to develop and demonstrate a new very compact and efficient integrated switching motor drive power module. This unit will be designed volumetric compact and enable high temperature withstand using an advanced current controlled design that incorporates state-of-the-art SiC and supplementary high temperature capable components. The unit will exhibit very low noise out of the power stage is that the output filter requirement will be quite modest. This will consequently cause significant reduction in the output filter that is usually the largest physical components of a switching design. The use of SiC switching devices will allow switching at 500kHz or greater translates to wideband motor drive performance. Although focused on designated AIM/PMM or other use DD(X) motor drive requirements, the design will be scalable as to address a large range of ACAT I/II programs insertion needs.
