Silicon Carbide multiport DC-DC converter fitted to the Tata Vista EV. A consortium led by motorsport and technology company Prodrive has successfully run a silicon carbide-based multiport DC-DC converter in an electric car. A key aspect of the converter is the use of silicon carbide devices. The DC-DC converter acts as a hub that transfers energy between key components of the vehicle’s high voltage electrical system.
