Research Projects

Passives Size Reduction for 1kW Boost Converter using SiC Devices at 200kHz Switching Frequency

SponsoringAgency: IIT Bombay

This project was aimed at testing SiC MOSFETs and Diodes at high switching frequencies (100kHz, 150kHz, and 200kHz) in a 1kW Boost Converter to observe the efficiency along with size reduction in passives as compared to Si devices. It involved the design and development of efficient gate driver circuits for SiC MOSFETs in single and Half Bridge configuration, and driving the same in a boost converter to analyze the system. This was implemented as a part of M.Tech. project at IIT Bombay.
