Efficient Green Hydrogen Production with Power Electronic Stacks

Producing green hydrogen calls for efficient water electrolysis. Reduced current ripple and grid harmonics increase water electrolysis efficiency; however, this often requires flexibility from power electronics. SEMIKRON offers extensive expertise to support power supply development for efficient green hydrogen production. In this webinar, Timo Gassauer explains the wide range of products, assemblies and services that SEMIKRON can provide.

Thermal Resistance of Power Modules

Understanding how heat flows out of a power module is crucial for power design. This webinar explains how thermal resistance is derived by a power module manufacturer, some techniques used for measurement, and how the values given in a datasheet can vary between module types and manufacturers. ​​​​​​​ Additionally, the concept of thermal coupling and how operating modes influence thermal resistance will be discussed. This webinar is a natural extension to the previous webinar “How to Read an IGBT Datasheet.”

How to Read an IGBT Module Datasheet

IGBT module datasheets are often a source of confusion. This webinar introduces the SEMIKRON datasheet for a typical industrial IGBT module, explaining each term and providing insight as to how it can be used. The content provides datasheet clarity for both entry-level and experienced engineers. We explain the difference between “maximum ratings” and “characteristics” and show the power designer which parameters are valuable for design and which points must be considered when comparing datasheets across manufacturers.

Demonstrating the Benefits of eMPack® Modules Using eMPack® Application Kit

SEMIKRON's eMPack power modules are perfect for automotive e-drive systems. SEMIKRON's Application Kits offer an easy way to get started with the eMPack in a short time in the customer's lab. There is no need to think about technical details like optimized gate resistors or any other kind of adaptation of the driver board to the eMPack modules. Available for different semiconductor technologies and blocking voltages the Application Kits reduce the time to get started significantly and are hence the perfect tool to evaluate different power ratings and semiconductor technologies.

Power Modules: Driving Tomorrow’s Smart Grid

The grid is changing from large, centralized power plants with passive loads to smaller, decentralized renewables with more active loads. With this more intelligent grid, power electronics driving the grid require higher efficiency and power density in a reliable package. During this PCIM webinar, SEMIKRON displays the latest developments enabled by generation 7 IGBTs and Silicon Carbide chipsets. For drives and UPS, SEMIKRON’s Generation 7 IGBT portfolio offers efficiencyin industrial standard packages. In applications requiring increased power density and efficiency, such as energy storage and EV charging, the latest SiC portfolio is now available. For Solar, achieve low cost and efficient designs by combining SiC and the latest IGBTs.

Push the Limits of Efficiency and Power Density for EV Charger Converters

EV Chargers require the smallest, most efficient converters at a competitive price point. Common knowledge says higher switching frequencies reduce filter size, but there are limitations to this principle. Switching devices, for instance, may become prohibitively expensive at extreme switching frequencies. With our new Silicon Carbide portfolio, SEMIKRON now has the tools to push these limits further. In this webinar, we compare power module selection with filter design. Additionally, we offer insights into our findings of converter development.

The Next Level for Wind Power Converters

Cost and efficiency are king in the world of renewable energy! Power up your investment, increase the voltage up to 1000VAC. This brings down the total cost of your wind energy system. 3-Level topologies enable this higher voltage, higher efficiency and greater power.

Our webinar 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. The new SEMITRANS 20 balances a simple design with the Active Neutral Point Clamped (ANPC) topology. The low inductance package offers increased reliability and easy paralleling. Both modules contain the latest IGBT generation M7.
