The requirements for reliability, compactness and energy efficiency on electric drive systems are constantly increasing. Competition is particularly tough for applications in volume markets. For such volume-market applications (e.g., air conditioners, washing machines, heat pumps or industrial drives) severe cost pressure is an additional challenge. DIPIPM™ addresses the increasingly demanding technical requirements while the framework conditions in terms of costs are taken into account. In those applications, DIPIPM is an enabler for maximum competitiveness and customer satisfaction.Download PDF

The challenge of IGBT module paralleling is to understand the necessary de-rating of power
converters under consideration of different module parameters. This understanding is important for
proper module parallel operation inside the thermal and safe operation limits.
Using 1700 V IGBT power modules for 1500 VDC applications carries many risks for unpredicted converter failures. Instead, a newly developed 2.0 kV Class IGBT module is enabling a reliable and efficient usage of simple 2-level topology for 1500VDC renewable inverter systems.Download PDF
