Custom geometries solutions for green energy industry - Energy
The traditional power converters used for photovoltaic (PV) applications use an inductor to achieve the power conversion. Micrometals high performance Iron and Alloy Powder Cores are widely specified for DC-DC voltage converters in PV systems because of their smaller size, better efficiency and superior magnetic properties. Solar panels utilizing photovoltaic (PV) cells produce DC (36V~>50V DC) power, while wind powered generator produces variable frequency AC power, AC power is first rectified and filtered to produce DC.
This DC power may be boosted to supply a DC rail for battery charging and downstream DC-DC converters to supply auxiliary DC power. An DC-AC inverter then produces 120V-240V/60Hz AC grid power, for local use or to be injected into the power grid. Inductors are used in the DC-DC boost converter circuit as well as in the output filters of the inverter circuit and any downstream DC-DC converters.
Micrometals high performance Iron and Alloy Powder Cores are widely specified for DC-DC converters in PV systems because of their smaller size, better efficiency and superior magnetic properties.
Micrometals also has extensive experience in designing custom core shapes and custom magnetic materials for PV applications where efficiency, thermal management and size are critical performance factors. This includes output filter inductors and DC-DC converter Inductors.
