Will We See GaN HEMTs in Electric Vehicle Power Electronics Devices?

Will We See GaN HEMTs in Electric Vehicle Power Electronics Devices?

Silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) are the new kids on the block when it comes to semiconductor power devices. Comparatively, traditional silicon has limitations in high temperature and high voltage operation, limitations important to overcome in the continuous grind for ever greater vehicle range and performance. In electric vehicle power electronics, SiC MOSFETs currently have a much greater presence than GaN HEMTs - why?

High Power Charging

High Power Charging

High Power Charging/Charger (HPC) refers to level 3 DC fast charging at a rate of 50 kW or more. In an effort to bring charging times down to those of conventional refuelling, such technology will play a vital role. For new EV owners, this means remarkably faster charging times, often cutting down the time needed for nearly full recharge by 30% to even 70%. It is ideal for short-stop locations or fleet vehicle charging, ranging from passenger vehicles to buses and trucks. With the charging power of the HPC, chargers can deliver all the power the new vehicles of the market can utilize. HPC charging is also a real game-changer for long-distance driving, as it dramatically reduces the time needed for charging over the journey. This article provides information about this technology, drivers, specifications, players and markets for DC fast charging stations.

The World's First Fossil-Free Steel Ready for Delivery

The World's First Fossil-Free Steel Ready for Delivery

SSAB has now produced the world's first fossil-free steel and delivered it to a customer. The trial delivery is an important step on the way to a completely fossil-free value chain for iron- and steelmaking and a milestone in the HYBRIT partnership between SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall.

New Approach Helps Design Lighter Carbon Fiber Composite Materials

Carbon fibers are usually combined with other materials to form a composite. One such composite material is the carbon fiber reinforced plastic, which is well-known for its tensile strength, rigidity, and high strength-to-weight ratio.
