Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the benefits of using high-voltage converter cells for transmission applications. These cells employ ultrahigh-voltage SiC bipolar power semiconductors, which are optimized for low conduction losses. The Modular Multilevel Converter with half-bridge cells is used as a test case. The results indicate a reduction of converter volume and complexity, while maintaining low losses and harmonic performance.
