The paper is focusing on to the research of the possibility of using of SiC MOSFETs and GaN-transistors in wireless power transmission systems. To carry research eGaN EPC2034 transistors and SiC transistors C3M0065090J have been used, since these transistors have good frequency properties and small cases. The power inverter hybrid modules were created with chosen transistors. The frequency properties of modules of power inverters were researched when silicone oil was used for direct liquid cooling by of modules. The efficiency assessments is presented for the created modules.
