Amantys is pleased to announce the release of the Tj Estimation Evaluation System for our landmark Junction Temperature Estimation technology. This sophisticated measurement system allows customers to capture detailed measurements of device operation in the inverter stack, and track the estimated junction temperatures during converter operation. It is designed to be fitted to a single phase leg (half-bridge) in an existing inverter stack, and works with any gate drive. Using this, customers can benchmark the estimated junction temperatures with either their own measurements or online temperature models.
The new dual channel Gate Drive is suitable for single IGBT and SiC modules such as nHPD2 and LinPack. Supporting 3300V and 1700V IGBTs and SiC MOSFETs, the gate drive is designed to mount directly on top of module allowing them to be mounted side-by-side and still meet creepage and clearance rules. Designed to railway traction standards the gate drive is available now.
1st July 2020, Dr. Angus Bryant presented "Simplifying the Calibration of On-State Voltage Drop for Online Junction Temperature Estimation in an Industrial Context" on Tue 7th July 2020 at 10:20 Stream 3 during PCIM Europe digital days.
15th June 2020, Amantys wins UKRI Fast Start Competition award. The funding will help to develop remote, real-time monitoring of the condition of power electronics in converters for off-shore wind turbines, power grids and those in rail traction systems. Read the full press release.
29th April 2019, Amantys Power Electronics demonstrated the Junction Temperature Estimation Evaluation System at PCIM 2019. The Tj Estimation Evaluation System is an exciting new measurement system which can estimate accurately both IGBT and diode junction temperatures to within ±5 °C in an operational converter.
