Mitsubishi Electric Corporation to launch two new HV100 dual-type X-Series HVIGBT modules for higher power, efficiency and reliability in inverter systems for large industrial equipment such as railways and electric power systems. The modules achieve industry-leading dual-type 600A current ratings with 10kVrms isolation voltage, believed to be unmatched among silicon HVIGBT modules rated at 3.3kV.
Current rating of 600A tops among high-current-density dual types with 10 kVrms isolation voltage and 3.3kV collector-emitter voltage, will help realize high-power, high-efficiency inverter systems for large industrial equipment such as electric railways and DC transmission systems. Seventh-generation IGBTs incorporating CSTBT and RFC diodes achieve 8.57A/cm2 power density, unsurpassed by other Si-modules (3.3kV/600A version). HV100 package with 10kVrms isolation voltage will help simplify insulation design in multi-level circuits for large industrial equipment. The terminal layout is optimized for easy paralleling and more flexible inverter configurations. Integration of the isolating plate and heat sink increases the thermal cycle lifetime for relatively long-term cycling of case temperatures. Lower thermal resistance increases power cycle life for relatively short-term cycling of chip temperatures.
