Sandia, DOE Energy Storage Program, GeneSiC Semiconductor, U.S. Army ARDEC: Ultra-High-Voltage Silicon Carbide Thyristors

Increasing consumer power demand creates numerous challenges for ensuring reliable, stable power for all customers. Many energy generation technologies, particularly renewables, generate direct-current power that must be converted to alternating current before use. High-frequency silicon carbide thyristors are expected to revolutionize grid infrastructure. Power switches, known as thyristors, perform this conversion and are [...]
