Fuji Electric develops IGBT modules for renewables


New series of large-capacity industrial modules targets solar and wind power generation systems

Fuji Electric has developed a new range of large-capacity industrial IGBT modules for applications including power conversion in solar power generation systems and power converters for wind power generation systems.

With increased rated current and voltage, the HPnC Series products are designed to improve the capacity and reduce the overall size of the power converters in which they are installed, contributing to lower power generation costs.

In addition to using the latest generation of IGBT chips, Fuji has optimised the module’s internal terminal layout and chip layout and also applied high heat dissipation materials. These improvements have resulted in rated current of 1800A (approximately 80 percent increase compared to the company’s previous products) while maintaining the size of the module.

It also means the number of power converters installed can be reduced by improving the capacity per unit. In solar power generation, they can also be used to expand the installation area of solar panels.

Furthermore, the 2300V breakdown voltage product means one module can support a 1500-VDC power converter, which makes it possible to reduce the number of IGBT modules installed and other components such as wiring in peripheral circuits, allowing for a smaller power converter footprint.

The company is offering 1200, 1500 and 1800A rated devices with a 1700V breakdown voltage. And a 1200A rated device with the 2300V breakdown voltage. These are scheduled for launch in June 2024.
