The development of 10 kV silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFETs and Junction Barrier Schottky (JBS) diodes for application to a 13.8kV 2.7 MVA Solid State Power Substation (SSPS) is shown. The design of half-bridge power modules has extensively used simulation, from electron level device simulations to the system level trade studies, to develop the most efficient module for use in the SSPS. In the work presented within, numerical simulations and experimental results are shown to demonstrate the design and operation of 10 kV JBS diodes. It is shown that JBS diodes at 10 kV can reduce 31% of the switching losses at 20 kHz than the fastest SiC PiN diodes.
