With the ever-growing and changing power requirements, designing a reliable wind converter is an increasingly difficult task. Semikron’s highly reliable, sintered SKiiP 4 has had a power boost and now features a further 25% increase in power. 

SKiiP is a proven platform, it allows for continuous improvement to reliability and performance with millions of units in the field today. The design effort is reduced through an integrated package including power module, driver, current sensors and cooler. Reliability is increased with sintering and solderless fatigue. Additionally, the baseplate-less design reduces chip temperatures and mechanical stress from temperature swings.

Semikron’s latest SKiiP 4 allows for improved reliability and performance in a backward compatible package. It features the new HPC (High Performance Cooling) technology and reduces thermal resistance from chip to coolant. Chip configurations can also be specifically tailored for reduced chip temperature swing in-line and rotor-side converters.

Register for Semikron’s complimentary webinar today to discover:

- Discover how to exploit the full performance potential of a SKiiP 4 with sintered chips to reach up to 25% more output power

- Learn how a solution based on SKiiP 4 can be optimised for generator side wind converters

- Discover how the SKiiP 4 on a HPC can fit into your custom mechanical constructions and reach unprecedented compactness of converter designs

- Get in touch with GD Rectifiers to customise a SKiiP 4 for your special power, performance or IGBT driver setup and requirements
