IPM combines boost PFC stage & 3 phase inverter

IPM combines boost PFC stage & 3 phase inverter
Infineon has introduced the CIPOS Mini, featuring power factor correction (PFC). The intelligent power module (IPM) combines a single switch boost PFC stage and a 3 phase inverter in one package. With the PFC integrated into the inverter module, the integrated CIPOS Mini IPM helps to reduce system size and the bill of material. Moreover, the additional PCB space gives room for further components.

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.
