Abstract



This paper investigates the mission profile efficiency
performance of a full-SiC power module based on Infineon’s Automotive CoolSiCTM MOSFET technology, suitable for traction inverter applications. This
module is compared against a full-Silicon (Si) and a hybrid Silicon Carbide
(SiC) module. The comparison is performed in identical state-of-the-art
automotive power module package with 8 nH stray inductance (HybridPACK Drive). A commutation-speed based
methodology is introduced to ensure that all devices are switching at the same
speed for comparison. Static and dynamic characterisation of the three modules
are performed, and these measurements are used to perform power loss
calculations for different mission profiles and the full-SiC module was found
to offer over 60% reduction in the total losses compared to the full-Si module.
