Efficient Power Conversion
Federico Unnia is Application Engineer at Motor Drive Design Center at EPC since 2022. He received BS in 2018 and MS in 2021 in Electronic Engineering at Politecnico di Torino. He did his master thesis in power electronics in collaboration with the Power Electronics Laboratory at University of California Irvine. Before joining EPC Federico worked as a Test Engineer in SPEA, an ATE company, focusing on power test applications.
Experimental Evaluation and Optimization of GaN Inverter for Motor Drive Applications
The paper deals with the usage of Gallium Nitride FET transistors in an inverter for motor drive applications. The aim of the paper is to give guidelines to motor drive hardware designers on how to minimize the components and optimize the layout in a GaN inverter, while keeping good switching waveforms and minimizing the ringing as a possible source of electro-magnetic interference.
