  Vincotech’s High Voltage Power Module Featuring NPC Topology

 2xflowNPC 4w – a breakthrough in low-inductive power modules rated up to 400

UNTERHACHING, Germany -- May 14, 2013

Vincotech, a leading supplier of module-based solutions for power electronics,
has released a new low-inductive power module designed for applications
ranging up to 400 kW such as three-phase solar inverters. This high-voltage
2xflowNPC 4w module features a higher power rating in the new wide-body
housing. Its Neutral Point Clamped (NPC) topology provides maximum efficiency
for higher switching frequencies.

This remarkably efficient power module integrates all three phases of the NPC
inverter topology into a new low-inductive package with a high-power screw
interface. The NPC topology cuts output filter effort and filter losses by
more than 50 percent, as well as switching losses by 50 percent.

Equipped with extremely fast 1200 V components to achieve a 2400 V/800 A
rating, the 2xflowNPC 4w module is destined for solar and UPS applications
with up to 400 kW and a DC link of 1500 V. Its ultra low-inductive (5nH)
technology and onboard DC capacitors extend maximum PWM frequencies up to 20
kHz, which is unique in this power range.

This extremely low-inductive 2xflowNPC 4w module is available in the
2xflowSCREW 4w housing. Samples may be ordered via standard sales channels.
