Gate Driver Principles, Considerations and Selection Process
No single IGBT gate driver meets every specific application. Therefore, in his webinar on October 26, Adyatmika Darmanandana will explain several considerations for selection and application of gate drivers. This information will help power electronics engineers choose the correct drivers and related components.
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.
eMPack® Power Module Family - Technology to Build Scalable and Highly Effcient Traction Inverters
Scalable, compact, highly reliable, efficient... these are some of the attributes passenger car manufactures require for e-drive system power electronics. Silicon Carbide (SiC) technology is the foundation for efficient power conversion but the specific features of SiC require an optimized module design with respect to electrical and thermal performance as well enhanced thermal cycling robustness. eMPack power modules based on Semikrons fully sintered direct pressed technology (DPD) is addressing these requirements.
