With the patented core technology SiCtech Induction has developed a variety of power modules for its integration in induction power supplies for induction heating applications. The modules feature all the necessary HW, SW and communication requirements for its easy integration in induction heating generators. In particular the modules integrate the power switches, its driving circuits including the corresponding power supplies, the sensors, the isolation circuits, the water cooled heatsink as well as the fully digital controller based on cyber-physical system architecture for advanced features.
The developed modules, with an efficiency higher than 99% in all its frequency range, from 10 to 400 kHz, have a very compact size and very small weight and can be easily paralleled for higher power levels.
Basically, there are two types of power modules. The single power port ones and the multipower port ones, for maximum 8 independent power outputs than can be independently controlled, fixing independently, for each of the 8 power ports, the frequency and the power, for providing a high versality in the applications.
The modules can be inverter type, by feeding the inverter with a DC voltage from 500 to 700 VDC, or converter type, that includes the rectifying section, so that the converter is fed by the 3Φ mains (400 or 440 Vac)
The i50k400R Module
This module, with a total power of 50 kW and a frequency range between 10 and 400 kHz, is a 4 channel power port module, featuring 4 independent 12,5 kW power outputs that can be controlled independently in power and in frequency allowing multiple applications with only one power module. The module is a converter type module that is fed with the 3Φ mains between 400 and 440 Vac. The module includes also all the required HW for a safe charging of the DC link capacitors.
The i100k400 Module
This module, with a total power of 100 kW and a frequency range between 10 and 400 kHz, is a 8 channel power port module, featuring 8 independent 12,5 kW power outputs that can be controlled independently in power and in frequency allowing multiple applications with only one power module. The module is an inverter type module fed with a DC voltage between 500 and 700 VDC.
