November 2020 - Semikron: The Next Level for Wind Power Converters Webinar
Published on: 11/11/2020
Watch Semikron's latest webinar on Wind Power Converters
Cost and efficiency are key in the world of renewable energy. Semikron works with its distributors and customers to power up their investment, increasing the voltage up to 1000Vac, which helps bring down the total cost of wind energy systems. Semikron’s 3-level topologies enable higher voltage, higher efficiency and greater power.
During the webinar Semikron shows an optimised solution for the Neutral-Point-Clamped (NPC) topology. The new SEMITRANS 10 MLI has an enhanced clamping diode for efficient bi-directional power flow.
Semikron’s new SEMITRANS 20 balances a simple design with the Active Neutral Point Clamped 9ANPC) topology. The low inductance package offers increased reliability and easy paralleling.
Both modules contain the latest IGBT generation M7.
For increased power at 690Vac, learn about the SKiiP4 with the new High Performance Cooler. Upgrade your power stack without changing the converter design thanks to full compatibility to the previous SKiiP 4 design.
Key Points Covered in the Webinar
- Benefits of 3-Level Topologies in the wind power converters
- Differences between NPC and ANPC
- Existing 690Vac designs upgraded with the new SKiiP4 High Performance Cooler (HPC)
