Toyota Hybrid Tested With SiC Power Semiconductors

Toyota Hybrid Tested With SiC Power Semiconductors

Toyota launched in Japan a program to test silicon carbide power semiconductors in hybrid vehicles. Using a Camry hybrid prototype and a fuel cell bus, Toyota Motor Corporation said the tests will evaluate the performance of silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductors, which it believes could lead to significant efficiency improvements in hybrids and other vehicles with electric powertrains. Power semiconductors are found in power control units (PCUs), which are used to control motor drive power in hybrids and other vehicles with electric powertrains. PCUs play a crucial role in the use of electricity, managing and supplying battery power to the motors during operation and recharging the battery using energy recovered during deceleration.
