Our Forum Presentations

E-Mobility Forum

eMPack® - The New Automotive Power Module Platform

Tuesday, July 7, 2020, 10:15 - 10:30 (CEST)
Wednesday, July 8, 2020, 10:15 - 10:30 (CEST)

Speaker:
Oliver Tamm 
(SEMIKRON)

SEMIKRON’s new power module platform eMPack, which is based on a single module concept, is being developed for EDS inverter architectures covering a power range from ~50kW up to ~750kW. The combination of Silicon Carbide technology with SEMIKRON’s fully sintered, low stray inductance Direct Pressed Die Technology (DPD) enables unmatched power densities combined with high reliability for automotive application.

Industry Forum

Parallel Operation of 3L NPC Power Modules

Wednesday, July 8, 2020, 11:40 - 12:00 (CEST)

Speaker:
Ingo Rabl (SEMIKRON)

The presentation is about paralleling 3-level NPC power modules with up to 1.5MW output power utilizing only one common driver. However, the well-known protection functionality known from separate drivers per module will be maintained. The presentation explains the pros and cons of paralleling 3L modules, the actual status quo and the benefits of different solution.

Round Tables hosted by SEMIKRON

Round Table 1

The Key to Harvesting more Energy: Optimized Power Electronics!

Tuesday, July 7, 2020, 10:00 - 11:00 (CEST)

Speaker:
Bernhard Eichler
 (SEMIKRON)
Emiliano Meza (SEMIKRON)

With the growing demand on renewable energy, there is also a growing demand for highly efficient and highly reliable power electronic components. During our Round Table we will discuss SEMIKRON solutions from PCB based systems up to high power modules for solar, wind and energy storage systems. The presentation will show the benefits of 3-level topologies in NPC and ANPC using silicon devices, including the new generation 7 IGBTs, as well as silicon carbide technologies.

Round Table 2

From Motor Drive to Renewable Energy: Generation 7 IGBT, the new Workhorse in Power Electronics

Wednesday, July 8, 2020, 10:00 - 11:00 (CEST)

Speaker:
Stefan Häuser
 (SEMIKRON)
Emiliano Meza (SEMIKRON)

IGBT Generation 7 is the new workhorse in power electronics. During our Round Table at the digital days of PCIM 2020 we would like to discuss their features and benefits for motor drive, solar and wind power applications with you.

Potential and Challenges of Additive Manufactured Substrates and Auxiliary Material for Electronics

Nominated for the Best Paper Award

learn more

Additive manufacturing principles will enforce within the industry the next few years. The reduction of resources and individualized Production is an additional driver for additive manufacturing. In a short overview, based on three representative - solder mask, sinter paste and PCB substrate - the current status of additive manufacturing within the electronic production will be shown. To obtain the benefit of those technologies the hitherto used process-flow, Tools and used Data formats must change.
