Presenter: Hong Jia Hong
Wide bandgap semiconductor devices bring significant power efficiency to a variety of applications. Semiconductor suppliers innovative portfolio of wide bandgap semiconductors is addressing state-of-the art electronics used in chargers and adapters for consumer applications, EV charging, telecom, SMPS, solar, and battery formation for industrial applications, as well as in onboard charging, high-voltage to low voltage DC-DC converters and traction inverters for automotive applications. The OBC in an EV is responsible for converting AC grid power into DC voltage to charge the traction battery, but its size and weight can negatively impact the vehicle’s range. For reducing weight and volume while supporting an ever-higher range – power density is key in OBC designs. Leading designers are working constantly towards increasing the power density levels as much as possible, with a goal to reach 6 kW/L by the end of the decade. The use of wide bandgap semiconductors in new circuit topologies and innovative packaging techniques are the key enabler to revolutionize On Board Chargers designs. Designers are taking advantage of wide bandgap technologies such as SiC and GaN to meet the challenges of the next generation of OBCs, such as growing demand for higher power classes. This has led to changes in topologies and implementations, such as active and efficient rectifiers and fast-switching techniques, which have allowed for an increase in power density while maintaining a high power conversion efficiency. Additionally, the wide voltage offering of 650V and 1200V power semiconductors allows for the coverage of different battery voltages as well as three-phase topologies. Innovative packages offer significant advantages at both the device and system levels, fulfilling the demanding requirements of cutting-edge high-power designs. To help customers transition from the TO220 and TO247 THD devices, innovation SMD packages and modules have been defined to deliver equivalent thermal capabilities with improved electrical performance. With such innovative packages, engineers will be able to design a complete application such as OBC and traction inverter with a higher power density that are required in today vehicle electrification.

The increasing adoption of transformative technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Scientific Simulation, Huge data processing, and 5G, has fueled a significant surge in power consumption in data centers, cloud computing, and networking infrastructures. This rapid growth has raised environmental concerns, emphasizing the need for Higher Power Efficiency to mitigate the impact on our ecosystem, carbon footprint, and global warming. Consequently, achieving High Efficiency and high power density has become a primary challenge in Power Supply design, driven by both system architect designer requirements and government policies.
Wide bandgap technology devices (WBG devices), such as Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) devices, have emerged as crucial enablers in addressing these challenges. A significant improvement on figure of merit (FOM), which result in low switching loss compare to Si FET. The zero reverse recovery allows for the implementation of bridgeless totem-pole PFC topology. Additionally, the reduced output capacitance of wide bandgap devices enables DC/DC power converters, such as LLC resonant converters, to operate at higher frequencies, resulting in increased power density and efficiency.
The Power Factor Correction (PFC) circuit, responsible for correcting or compensating the current shape to meet product requirements, plays a pivotal role. Bridgeless PFC, notably the totem pole PFC, contributes significantly to achieving high efficiency and power density in power supply units (PSUs) by eliminating power losses caused by diode forward voltage without the need for a diode bridge rectifier. However, solely relying on the totem pole PFC topology with hard switching Continuous Conduction Mode (CCM) operation may prove inadequate when higher power density is needed. Thus, other novel techniques like Triangular Current Mode (TCM), Multi-Level topologies are being widely explored to fulfill the desired requirements effectively.
High-Efficiency DC/DC converters are still essential for power supply design. The popularity of the LLC resonant converter stems from its simplicity, high gain, and soft-switching capabilities. Nonetheless, it still presents challenges when higher frequency is needed due to the emergence of WBG, including low loss high-frequency magnetic design, control complexities, and critical component layout/packaging for high-frequency operation.
This presentation provides a comprehensive overview of high-frequency power conversion techniques such as PFC topologies, control techniques, resonant converter, challenges in magnetic and high-frequency design, and packaging. It also covers the impacts of WBG technology, such as efficiency and power density, when compared to Silicon Devices.
Lastly, the future trend of Wide Band Gap Devices, including Integrated driver power switches, is discussed, envisioning further advancements in power electronics.
By elucidating these critical aspects, this presentation aims to enrich the understanding of power supply design complexities and pave the way for more efficient and sustainable power systems.

In the power electronics application fields, the design and implementation of power converters are at a turning point amid rising global need for electrification various transportation means as well as consensus for energy saving to counter climate change issues.
Looking at the wide range of power electronic applications – from less than one-watt power needed for the operation of mobile phones up to 100s of mega-watt power needed for high-speed trains and high power rated application systems/equipment – all looking into power electronic potential for energy efficiency and sustainable reduction of CO2 emission in future systems.
Silicon (Si) IGBTs are at present the most widely used power semiconductors in most medium to high power conversion fields. However, this trend is increasingly showing signs of change with the appearance of wide-bandgap (WBG) devices, particularly the ones based on silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN).
Since the middle of the 1990s power semiconductors started to evolve without being dependent solely on feature size refinement that has been the mainstream for LSIs (Large Scale ICs). The significant increase in electrical performance has come from the overall silicon utilization (vertical- & horizontal- structural optimization). Based on this trend the technology roadmap for power devices has followed a horizontal chip optimization, e.g., smaller feature size is translated into higher cell densities and new trench gate structures, and a vertical optimization to minimize the drift layer and reduce the bulk substrate material significantly. Chronologically power devices adhered with these technologies have helped to largely reduce the overall operation losses, increase the switching frequency and efficiencies of power conversion systems employed in or implemented by all major industries and services. Such mainstream technology development trends are continuing to be adopted to elevated performance-to-cost ratio of all key power devices (i.e., IGBTs, diodes of fast-recovery and Schottky types, MOSFETs and super-junction devices) either based on Si or SiC or GaN.
Furthermore, SiC and GaN power devices, including power modules, have been widely investigated for future power switching systems with high efficiencies. With the uprising need for electrifying vehicles in the automotive industry, the applicability potential of these new devices is being thoroughly investigated. So far, prototypes of practicable transistors using these wide-bandgap materials have demonstrated their performance superiority and great potential.
It is therefore of high interest to review the main features and the advantages of Si/SiC/GaN based power devices and modules and to identify the most used alternatives in the medium to high range power conversion systems e.g, EV/HEV powertrains, railway traction drives and air-conditioning. The aim of this presentation is therefore to give an overview of the trends the Si, SiC, GaN based power chip and module technologies are following to meet needs and practices of the abovesaid key industries. The presentation also covers the latest device technologies and future outlooks highlighting as well on challenges ahead to be solved.

As the number of electric vehicles on the roads continues to grow, so does the infrastructure required to ensure that finding a charging station or charging point and charging the vehicle in a fast and safe way is not a problem. DC charging stations are the means of choice when it comes to charging electric vehicles within a short period of time.
The aim is to be able to charge electric vehicles at any socket-outlet. This means different network types and protective measures can come together during the charging process. This requires careful coordination and implementation in order to guarantee comprehensive electrical safety for the user.
A distinction is made between different charging modes. The most common charging mode is AC charging. Since most of the vehicles provide a maximum AC charging power of 11 kW, it is often the case that charging a car requires a very long time. DC charging stations are the means of choice when it comes to charging electric vehicles within a short period of time.
In order to guarantee the electrical safety of the charging circuit, it is set up as an unearthed DC power supply system (IT system) according to IEC 61851-23. The maximum controlled charging power in DC-low mode is 50 kW to 170 kW and in the future up to 350 kW with up to 1,000 V.
During the charging process, an insulation monitoring device (IMD) monitors the entire charging circuit in the charging station as far as the electric vehicle. The IMD in the vehicle must be deactivated during this process. By principle , the insulation monitoring device is connected between the live supply conductors and earth and superimposes a measuring voltage Um. In the event of an insulation fault, the insulation fault RF closes the measuring circuit between the system and earth, generating a measuring current Im that is proportional to the insulation fault. This measuring current generates a corresponding voltage drop at the measuring resistance Rm, which is evaluated by the electronics. If this voltage drop exceeds a specific value equivalent to the under shooting of a specific insulation resistance, a signal will be output. As prescribed measuring principle which enables them to monitor both symmetrical and asymmetrical deteriorations in insulation. Insulation fault for plus or minus of DC power supply will be monitored and identified.
The isoCHA425HV IMD from Bender has been specifically developed for use in DC charging stations. For insulation monitoring in vehicles, Bender offers IR155 series IMDs. These devices use a measurement method that is adapted to the frequent and fast load changes in passenger cars or commercial vehicles, thus avoiding false tripping.
