Efficient Implementation of Solid State Transformers
Naval Postgraduate School
Overview: The mission of the project is to investigate new switching devices such as SiC and GaN for use in SSTs for their performance, application, reliability, and cost. A smaller, lighter, and reconfigurable power conversion device will provide an alternative to the conventional utility frequency transformers in use. Specifically, a replacement for the Mobile Utility Support Equipment substation transformer would be evaluated.
Responsibilities: Perform electrical measurements, reliability tests or simulations on GaN and SiC power transistors.
Considered Major(s): Electrical Engineering
