The solar power market is undergoing a trend towards 1500 V solutions, which allow for more series connections, less cable, fewer generator connection boxes and fewer inverters. The new EasyPACK™ 3B with TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 is especially designed for this market; it offers not only the established flexible pin-grid system to realize customized solutions, but the 950 V Active Neutral Point-Clamping (ANPC) topology can generate alternating current from 1500 V direct current with particularly low loss levels.
EasyPACK™ 3B is a total solution for 1500 V solar inverters. For MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracker), Infineon offers a single module solution in dual-boost topology with 3 MPPTs in one module. Each of the MPPT can handle up to 26 A current. This makes this solution ready for bi-facial solar panels.
For the inverter stage, Infineon offers two solutions: one with Si diodes and one with CoolSiC™ Schottky diodes. The EasyPACK™ 3B with TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 and CoolSiC™ Schottky diode can achieve up to 10% higher power density.
