New standardised medium voltage package

Nürnberg, 10 May 2016
SEMITRANS20 overcomes the limits of conventional medium voltage module concepts and provides a new design approach for inverters in applications such as transportation, industrial drives and grid infrastructure. Optimised for the medium voltage market with the latest 3.3kV IGBTs, the SEMITRANS20 is designed as a half bridge configuration featuring a built-in temperature sensor and opposite DC and AC power terminals. Compared to conventional modules, the stray inductance is reduced by up to 75%, thus providing higher operational safety and easy paralleling. The new SEMITRANS20 allows a higher degree of scalability and flexibility in medium voltage inverter design. The standardised package meets the increasing demands for lower cost, higher efficiency and durability for power electronics in industry, transportation and infrastructure.


SEMIKRON is one of the world's leading manufacturers of power modules and systems primarily in the medium output range (approx. 2 kW up to 10 MW). Our products are at the heart of modern energy efficient motor drives and industrial automation systems. Further application areas include power supplies, renewable energies (wind and solar power) and utility vehicles. SEMIKRON's innovative power electronic products enable our customers to develop smaller, more energy efficient power electronic systems. These systems in turn reduce the global energy demand.
