Abstract

This paper reviews major challenges in applying solid state technology to energy efficient industrial high frequency high power generation. Comparisons to vacuum tube technology related to operating frequency, power handling, and thermal design are presented. Challenges and opportunities in applying wide band gap devices to this field are discussed, and recent progress in advancing solid state technology into this area is considered at device and module levels.
