A novel packaging structure for large current rating silicon carbide (SiC) power module has been developed based on a phase leg clustering concept. A prototype 1200 V-360 A SiC power module is developed using SiC-MOSFETs and SiC-SBDs and the very low parasitic inductance of 7.8 nH including a DC link capacitor has been achieved. The experimental and circuit simulation results show that the ultra-fast switching can be available owing to the very low parasitic inductance.
