This paper introduces a control hardware platform and suitable current sensors for fast switching silicon carbide (SiC) dc-dc converters. An overview and detailed analysis of high-bandwidth current sensors is given, which make it possible to further increase the power density of converters by the reduction of passive component size through higher switching frequencies and fast control.
