Participation in Practice Forum Electrical Drive Engineering

From 24 to 26 March 2015, Practice Forum Electrical Drive Engineering takes place in the Vogel Convention Center VCC Würzburg, Germany. The forum deals with solutions for Drive-Engineering tasks. The three-day event comprises a congress day and two seminar days.

On Tuesday, 24 March, 11:30 a.m., Sven Bochmann, Turck duotec GmbH and Marco Neubert, EDC Electronic Design Chemnitz GmbH, are giving a speech on “Miniaturization of frequency converters with a modular- and integrated power module for special requirements in mounting and connection technology”.

They will present a possibility for the miniaturization of frequency converters with a compact-, intelligent- modular as well as integrated power modules up to 10kW and 500V wide-range input.
A central point is the driver circuit to control a high-side power switch (MOSFET, IGBT). Thereby, investigating the efficiency of technologies that can be effected with an ASIC capacitive-, inductive-, opto-electronic- or through various circuitries with integrated high-voltage transistors. The lecture will also consider the requirements for the ASIC-development and the AVT challenges for the PCB pick-and-place machine. Void-free vacuum soldering and thick-wire bonding are topics, among others, necessary for heat dissipation in smallest spaces with potted components.
