Overall circuit loss design method for designing integrated power converters employing a MOSFET and a SiC-Schottky Barrier Diode (SiC-SBD) based on a minimum circuit loss estimation model has been proposed. Since the model is generalized with device parameters and circuit parameters including stray inductances and capacitances, exact converter circuit loss under real circuit conditions can be designed. In addition, a concept of a circuit loss design method, which comprises the minimum circuit loss estimation model and a device simulator, for various types of MOSFETs and SBDs is described.
