Oneof the most actively implemented systems to comply with the world decarbonization plan is photovoltaic. For the past twenty years the growth of this industry has been exponential. With the increasing demand for green electricity, solar power market experts predict over 20% compound annual growth rate for the industry in the coming years.
Nowadays many consider solar power as the most preferable because it produces no noise, harmful emissions or polluting gases; modular systems can be quickly installed anywhere with installation cost relatively low. Besides, minimal maintenance is required to keep the system running. Solar inverter converts direct current from the solar panels to alternating current before transmitting it to the grid, and is of top priority in PV system.
However, no solar inverter can work without power semiconductors. And the more efficient power semiconductors are used, the less power losses the whole photovoltaic system has.
Leapers Semiconductor’s wide SiC power modules portfolio includes top solutions for the solar power industry and solar inverters in particular. Thus, E0 series SiC power modules are perfect fit for solar inverters with its high grade Si3N4 AMB substrates that combine best mechanical robustness with excellent heat dissipation properties featuring very high-power densities. Unlike the competitors E0 modules feature epoxy resin instead of silicon leading to 3x and higher power and thermal cycling characteristics.
The flagship in the seriesDFS05HF12EYR1 power module has no alternatives in the market with its:
Ø150 A max output current
ØCTI > 400
Ø3,4kVrms/1min isolation voltage
Ø180k power cycles
Ø175°C max junction temperature
The E0 series family includes seven SiC power modules with current range of 50-150 A, and Rdson as low as 5,5-40 mOhm to match your requirements and applications.
With Leapers Semiconductor E0 series SiC power modules you can reach the desired power efficiency for your solar inverters and the whole photovoltaic system.
