Nowadays, solid state transformer (SST) is been considered as an alternative option in smart grid where additional ancillary services that cannot be provided by conventional line frequency transformer (LFT) are required. However, the power transmission capability of SST is limited to that of its semiconductor switches which are power electronics devices. As such SST needs a new way of dealing with overload. This paper presents an investigation into the overloading scenario in SST. The overloading is achieved by modifying the SST control algorithm to include a current limiting controller that modulates the output current as a function of junction temperature.
