Germany's NeuLand project cuts energy losses by 35% in power electronics

SiC has traditionally been a very expensive wafer material. However, there are now more SiC vendors and the number of possible applications has grown. NeuLand project partners have been able to demonstrate that the efficiency of power electronics can be increased by more than a third using SiC- and GaN-based components. For example, solar inverters can benefit from considerable material savings with no change in effectiveness, making them more cost-efficient. But results also show that the cost of SiC components must drop even further for wide-scale application to solar inverters and that, for GaN-based components, further intensive research is required on reliability, service lifetime and costs.
