Dead Time Reverse Conduction Investigation in GaN-Based Inverter for Motor Drives Presenter: Marco Palma, Director of Motor Drive Systems and Applications

The paper deals with the reverse conduction during the dead time of low-voltage GaN FETs in inverters for motor control applications. The variation of the current, caused by the sinusoidal modulation in an AC motor drive leads to a different dead time losses mechanism with respect to the DC-DC converter application, which is worth investigating. The reverse conduction is correlated with both current variation and GaN technology in inverter legs applications. Furthermore, the GaN FET device's reverse conduction is also compared to equivalent low-voltage MOSFET devices considering the different static and dynamic characteristics. This work aims to provide to inverter designers an investigation and a guideline on the dead time selection and its limits in an inverter leg for motor control with the last generation of GaN FET devices.

Power Electronics Forum at electronica 2022

Wednesday, November 16, 2022 - Friday, November 18, 2022
Power Electronics Forum at electronica 2022
Location: Munich, Germany

Panel Discussion Date: 16 November 2022
Time: 10:40 – 11:20 CET

Panelist: Doug Bailey, Vice President of Marketing & Applications Engineering, Power Integrations, Alex Lidow, CEO and Co-founder, Efficient Power Conversion (EPC), Guy Moxey, Senior Director of Power Marketing, Wolfspeed, Aly Mashaly, Director – Automotive Application & Power Systems, ROHM, Stephen Oliver, VP Corporate Marketing & Investor Relations, Navitas, Gerald Deboy, Distinguished Engineer Power Semiconductors and System Engineering, Infineon

As silicon carbide and gallium nitride technologies continue to emerge in the power component market, companies are expanding and developing to offer an extensive portfolio of devices. In the last couple of years, the worldwide wide-bandgap scenes have been characterized by development and growing industry acceptance. In this panel discussion, we will explore the prospects and challenges of both materials in multiple application contexts, as well as the last barriers to overcome for widespread adoption, such as large-volume capabilities and prices.

Keynote: GaN Technology Accelerates DC-DC Power Density IncreasesDate: 18 November 2022
Time: 10:00 – 10:40 CET

Keynote Speaker: Alex Lidow, Chief Executive Officer, Efficient Power Conversion (EPC)

Since the first commercial GaN power transistors launched in 2010 there have been several generational improvements in the technology. From the beginning, one of the key target markets for GaN power transistors has been the 48 VIN DC-DC power supply for high performance enterprise computing. In this talk we will tie the evolution of GaN transistor technology to the improvements in power density achieved in DC-DC converters. From under 500 W/in3 for a MOSFET-based 48 V – 12 V converter in 2015 to today’s benchmarks of over 5000 W/in3 we will show the GaN technology that enabled these changes and give a view into the future of the technology and its expanding adoption in a wide variety of applications.

The Opportunity from GaN and for GaN in CarsSpeaker: Alex Lidow, CEO and Co-founder, Efficient Power Conversion Corp.

Two technologies that have recently crossed their tipping point for mass adoption are electric cars and gallium nitride power semiconductors. Both technologies have a significant influence on each other’s path to the future. GaN has demonstrated it is a superior power semiconductor that both outperforms silicon and can be produced at a lower cost. Automotive electrification enables a whole new set of opportunities for improved energy efficiency, and GaN adoption in vehicular applications such as headlamps, lidar sensors, and 48 V power distribution systems contribute to both the safety and efficiency of cars propelled by traditional internal combustion (ICE), mild hybrid systems (HEV), as well as battery – electric vehicles (BEV). This talk will discuss the benefits derived from GaN adoption in vehicles, the future trajectory of adoption including the technological evolution of GaN transistors, GaN integrated circuits, and new circuit topologies for electric vehicle traction drives based on low voltage GaN technology.
