Next Generation Power Stack Technology can deliver significant benefits to the whole converter and reduce development, capital and operating costs through improved rating/efficiency and enhanced monitoring. Key enabling technologies are:
- Junction Temperature (Tj) Estimation: improved thermal management of IGBTs and diodes
- Switchable Gate Resistance (Rg): reduced losses in a constrained converter
- Power Insight: bi-directional communication with the converter controller
By combining these technologies and taking a holistic view of the converter, designers can unlock latent potential in the converter and improve performance, cost and availability.
