This paper presents features of a silicon carbide (SiC) power module (SiC J1-series) dedicated for electric vehicle (EV) and hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) power train. To compare a silicon power module and a SiC power module, loss simulation was performed with both modules having the same package and the same rating chips (300 A / 1200 V). As a result, the power loss of the SiC power module has been reduced by 62 % compared with the Si power module.
