Research Institution
Electrical power distribution systems, both military and electric utility systems are becoming faster in power delivery and response. More loads interface through power electronics and sources are more numerous with much lower internal resistance. The advent of"Smart-Grid"thinking and the need for better monitoring, reconfiguring and response in military systems, has placed greater importance on the protection and control of power delivery. The embodiment of the MLC and BTC functions in solid-state switchgear utilizing Silicon Carbide (SiC) power semiconductors brings significant performance improvements to the electrical power system, along with improved power quality, higher safety factors and potential weight savings to the aircraft. DensePower, LLC proposes to develop a new product family of solid state contactors using advanced electronic packaging materials integrating electrical, mechanical and thermal features.
