This paper presents the power density developments of high-power isolated dc-dc converter to be utilized in a higher voltage direct-current (HVDC) power-supply system of a data center. This technique results in a prototype of dc-dc converter unit which is smaller by factor of ten when compared with the conventional one, and the area of power-supply system becomes much smaller than before. Consequently, the cooling power for this power-supply system is saved and both the energy and the space saving are available. In order to realize a prototype of the high-power isolated dc-dc converter, the switching power devices composed of a hybrid pair of Si-CoolMOS and SiC-SBD are utilized and operated in a driving pattern of hard switching with a frequency of 200kHz. As a result, an isolated dc-dc converter with the input/output voltage of 400V/400V, a rating power of 5kW, and a high power density of 10W/cm3 has been fabricated. The experimental confirmation was reported and the surge problems due to diode recovery difficulties mentioned before was solved.
