intelligent power module (IPM)

Intelligent Power

Modules (IPM) are intelligent supply components that are primarily used in the high-power sector. For example, in solar and wind energy, in rail vehicles, elevators and in industrial production facilities. IPM modules are used to control currents and voltages of several kilo-amperes (kA) and kilo-volts (kV). The power values of the modules are in the megawatt range. Components of the IPM modules are IGBTs, which are interference-resistant and temperature-independent, and which carry out the switching functions, the cooling and the concept for busbars in order to be able to transmit high currents with the lowest possible losses.
