Event Description

As DC fast charger (DCFC) demands are rapidly increasing, system-level simulations of such complex power electronic applications are going to be invaluable for virtual prototyping. Using a simulation tool that delivers first time-right design results is critical to shorten time to market while achieving maximum system performance. We will demonstrate a state-of-art accurate simulation flow that deploys the novel Elite Power Simulator and the industry first Self-Service PLECS Model Generator with our EliteSiC module based 25kW fast DC charger reference design. In this webinar, we will cover the following topics:

Introduce you to advantages of the simulation tools through simulation of an AC-DC active front end (or PFC) 3-phase line 6-pack boost stage and a DC-DC isolated dual active bridge in which the first generation of the EliteSiC 1200 V 10 mohm power module is deployed.

Analyze the impacts on the charger performances (such as losses, efficiency, junction temperature) on semiconductor process variation using the simulator’s corner model simulation capability.

Compare the simulation results with the measurements obtained from the actual boards to demonstrate accuracy of the simulation tools.

Redo the design and simulations using our latest M3S technology based half bridge EliteSiC power module and show you how efficiency can be improved.
