Mitsubishi Electric Corp. has launched its New-MPD (Mega Power Dual) Series of insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) modules. Suitable for all applications requiring high power density, the New-MPD modules are mainly for use in power converters for large-capacity wind power and photovoltaic systems.
According to the company, the product's rating has been extended to 2,500A by using dedicated package and sixth-generation IGBT. An optimum chip layout with adequate surrounding margin improves cooling efficiency in liquid-cooled applications, Mitsubishi Electric adds.
Shipments will begin in January 2010 through Mitsubishi Electric sales sites in the Americas, Europe, China, Korea.
