Software tools configures and test converter power stacks

Amantys Power Electronics launches the Power Insight tool to speed up the process of design and commissioning new converter power stacks.  

Typically the converter power stack designer needs to disassemble the converter power stack to desolder and replace gate resistors onto the gate drives to manage the rise and fall times of the IGBT. This can be a time-consuming, laborious and error prone process. The tool makes these changes in seconds rather than hours. It also avoids the need for a separate signal generator with optical output, as it uses the company’s Power Insight Adapter, an interface box that provides a physical interface to the gate drive, to generate double pulse waveforms. This simplifies the process of testing the converter power stack.

The Configurator can also download diagnostic data from the company’s gate drivers in order to monitor the occurrence of events such as short circuits, clamps and under-voltage during the long term operation of the gate driver in the field.
