China’s Hopewind selected ABB’s LoPak IGBT modules

China’s Hopewind selected ABB’s LoPak modules After two years of stringent testing and one year of field operations, it finally paid off. ABB’s LoPak IGBT module is now qualified by one of the world’s leading wind power converter manufacturers. Hopewind Electric Co., Ltd based in Shenzhen, China. is scheduled to take volume delivery of LoPak 1700 V / 450 A ABB medium power IGBT modules for use in wind converter applications operating between 1.5 to 2.5 MW (megawatt). This follows a successful collaboration between Hopewind, Sunking (distribution partner in China) and the ABB Power Grids team in Lenzburg, Peking and Manila. The company´s current production phase will generate up to 2,000 MW using wind power, a capacity equivalent to the needs of one million of Swiss households.

Infineon EconoDUAL IGBT Modules

ECONODUAL3 Infineon Technologies AG just introduced the new IGBT7 chip for its well-known Easy housing platform. Now it is taking the state-of-the-art TRENCHSTOP IGBT7 to the arena of medium power: in the standard industry package EconoDUAL 3. In this chip technology, the 1200 V module provides a leading nominal current of 900 A enabling a 30 percent higher inverter output current for the same frame size compared with the former technology. it can also be used in construction, commercial and agricultural vehicles (CAV), servo drives, as well as UPS and solar inverters. Improving the already new micro-pattern trench technology, the TRENCHSTOP IGBT7 chip performs with much lower static losses compared to the IGBT4. Its on-state voltage is reduced by up to 30 percent for the same chip area. bringing significant loss reduction in the application, for industrial drives this is ideal as they usually operate at moderate switching frequencies. The oscillation behavior and the controllability of the IGBT have been improved. The power modules feature a maximum allowed overload junction temperature of 175°C. Among the other improvements there is the freewheeling diode (FWD) which has also been optimized for drive applications. The forward-voltage drop of the emitter-controlled 7th generation diode (EC7) is now 100 mV lower than the forward-voltage drop of the EC4 diode, with reduced oscillation tendency during diode turn-off, the future looks bright for this kind of technology.
