Tech basis set for high performance electronic circuit breakers

Tech basis set for high performance electronic circuit breakers
A German research team has explored the technological basis for reducing the energy losses in power grids and electric devices by more than half. This can be made possible through the use of DC. DC allows for smaller power losses when compared to the alternating current (AC) used today. The five project partners from industry and science investigated the foundations of a semiconductor-based and completely electronic circuit breaker that can be used for future DC power grids and applications.

Add discrete IGBTs to the mix for more efficient cooking

Add discrete IGBTs to the mix for more efficient cooking
Induction cooking appliances commonly make use of resonant topologies which allow bidirectional current flow. Additionally they demand a discrete IGBT that performs best at switching frequencies from 18 to 40kHz and has low losses. Infineon has launched a family of discrete IGBTs to address these needs. The RC-E devices are cost optimised and specifically meet the demands of low- to mid-price range induction cookers and induction rice cookers.
