NPC modules with latest IGBTs handle 120kVA

January 10, 2018 // By Nick Flaherty
Vincotech in Germany has launched neutral-point-clamped (NPC) power modules with the latest IGBT devices for three-phase solar, UPS and storage applications up to 120kVA

Based on silicon IGBTs, the flowNPC 2 modules are rated for 650 V / 200 A & 300 A with switching frequencies up to 50 kHz even without SiC technology. When SiC components are used, the best performance starts above 8 to 10 kHz. As cost comparisons show, these NPC modules offer 10% savings over MNPC modules rated for the same current.

They are packaged in the low-inductive, 13 mm flow 2 housing and available with Press-fit and solder pins, without adding any non-recurring engineering costs to the bottom line. Samples of the flowNPC 2 modules are available from distributors.
