flowBOOST 0 power module

Power, GPS and hybrid modules provider Vincotech has released of two new product families featuring 3-level topologies dedicated to solar inverter and UPS applications. Designed for maximum efficiency and using state of the art chip technologies, the flowBOOST 0 Dual and flowNPC 0 families address a power range of up to 15kW.

The newly released families respectively offer the dual Boost and Neutral Point Inverter topologies used in 3-level solar and UPS systems. Advantages of the 3-level approach include lower cost and higher efficiency, due to the use of 600V components. Featuring the latest chip technologies, such as SiC diodes and CoolMOS, these modules achieve a maximum European Efficiency (EE) of 99 percent per module.

The highest efficiency is achieved by the flowNPC 0 family members featuring the parallel switching of a CoolMOS and an IGBT. The optimal conduction performance of the IGBT coupled with the low switching losses of the CoolMOS lead to lowest overall losses and thereby an extremely high efficiency. flowNPC 0 further features regenerative power capability, an emerging requirement in solar inverter applications.

The modules are housed in Vincotech's proven flow0 package. At 33mm x 66mm x 12mm and featuring its unique clip-in mechanism, the flow0 is one of the most compact and easy-to-handle packages in the power module market.
