This research was completed to study the effects of extreme transient conditions on Silicon Carbide MOSFET devices. Two different transient conditions that are common in power converters were studied in this paper. The first is effects of voltage rise time, or dV/dt, on these devices. The second is the effects of current pulses with short pulse width and high peak currents. Both of these tests were conducted at temperatures of 150 °C to determine the performance of these devices in high stress environments. For both of these experiments, testing apparatus had to be designed and built to create these specific conditions.
