Multi-level SiC Module for Aircraft applications

Project description

Boosting power system efficiency in aircraft

Silicon carbide (SiC) is a novel material for next-generation power electronics devices, expected to significantly improve efficiency and reduce the size and weight of aircraft power converter technology. Power systems that use silicon carbide semiconductors will allow us to achieve higher power densities, voltages, temperatures and frequencies while reducing heat dissipation. The aim of the EU-funded MuSiCA project is to design and manufacture a power electronic module integrated with a gate driver in a reliable package to enable SiC technology to meet its full potential and demonstrate its competitiveness against current solutions. The project's outcomes will support the adoption of new silicon carbide devices in aerospace applications, enabling smaller and lighter power converters for more electric aircraft while helping to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
