It is converters taking into account semiconductor silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN), with far better execution than silicon.
New advancements permit converters and grow more productive, littler and lighter than ordinary force. These three qualities supply items more focused and have an incredible significance in the race for vitality productivity, zap of transport and the coordination of renewables. IK4-IKERLAN is a pioneer in the dedication to the improvement of converters with these advantages taking into account two new advances that will reform this field: semiconductor silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN).
The need to decrease CO2 emanations is driving research in a key region, that of the force converters, whose part is to adjust and change electrical vitality for a specific reason.
Advances in this field are essential in parts, for example, vitality, versatility, industry, administrations and utilization. IK4-IKERLAN works together with pioneers in creating achievement applications in view of this new era of semiconductor organizations.
The force converters are utilized to adjust and change electrical vitality for different purposes, for example, bolstering hardware, change DC to AC current or the other way around, store vitality, control the operation and velocity of electric engines and generators …
The primary target looked to outline these gadgets is to oversee vitality productively. Converters based cutting edge semiconductor silicon carbide and gallium nitride-IKERLAN IK4 grows altogether enhance the execution of customary (silicon-based semiconductor), and coming to 99% yield (by bringing down half misfortunes as warmth created by the converters) and weight diminishments of more than 50% volume.
These preferences are much more applicable in applications where diminished weight and volume are basic components, for example, those for the vehicle and aviation.
The abilities of IK4-IKERLAN
In light of the new semiconductor, IK4-IKERLAN imagines a significant sectoral effect, on account of the enhanced execution in productivity, weight and volume.
IKERLAN-IK4 creates converters affect on different segments. For rail, makes converters for footing, stockpiling, and contactless vitality chargers. For the vitality area, for joining of renewable vitality converters and capacity frameworks administration. In the mechanical division financial specialists for controlling footing engines.
Advances in this field are vital in segments, for example, vitality, versatility, industry, administrations and utilization.
In applications identified with rail, lower weight and size are critical game changers on the grounds that it is implanted applications.
For the segments of vitality, capital merchandise, modern and purchaser applications, the most imperative game changer is enhanced productivity, which is critical in every one of them, permitting a lessening of vitality utilization.
On account of the car part, the effect of this new era of converters will be connected to the developing utilization of electric vehicles: converters for charging stations for electric and crossover commute vehicles, generators and converters for administration stockpiling frameworks, making electric vehicles with more prominent independence.
IK4-IKERLAN gives its capacities in the field of force converters in light of silicon carbide and gallium nitride in two European extends as of late affirmed. This is the Powerbase Roll2Rail and ventures.
In the Roll2Rail task, drove by the Association of European rail route industry (UNIFE), will investigate and create advances for future trains. This undertaking, which will have a financial plan of 16 million euros, included the main makers of the landmass and is required to increment by 15% the limit of trains and 50% dependability, lessen 30% vitality and 40 % assembling expenses. In this undertaking, IK4-IKERLAN behavior its exploration in a joint effort with CAF, additionally an individual from the consortium.
The Powerbase venture, drove by the organization Infineon, means to reinforce the position of Europe in the advancement of force semiconductors showing and evaluating the upgrades that give converters gallium nitride in its distinctive applications: LED, photovoltaic, information transfers, lighting, battery chargers or Compact power supply for mechanization frameworks, for instance. As a component of this venture, IK4-IKERLAN is driving the work bundle devoted to the advancement of minimized converters in view of gallium nitride.
More proficient force converters to decrease CO2 emanations
