Energy-efficient components and subsystems for high system reliability
Power semiconductors play a key role in the generation of energy from renewable sources. In wind turbines, power semiconductors convert electricity and couple the generator to the grid. A wind power converter in a wind turbine controls several essential functions apart from transfer power and therefore requires power semiconductors of the highest quality.
Wind turbine designs must provide maximum availability to contribute to grid stability, which applies most importantly to the wind power converters. Grid stability, therefore, depends on power semiconductor devices that offer dynamic capabilities, excellent functionality, and superior reliability. With advanced joining technology .XT the PrimePACK™ with IGBT5 .XT in 1700 V is the leading product in the wind market for the coming years offering best-in-class power cycling capability leading to a longer lifetime. PrimePACK™ 3+ is a state-of-the-art power module package ideally suited for wind applications. PrimePACK™ 3+ housing enables increased current carrying capabilities. Apart from IGBT5 .XT we also recommend EconoDUAL™, and EconoPACK™+ with IGBT4 chip technology together with EiceDRIVER™ isolated gate drivers for wind power converters
