Despite their varied applications, solar inverters, wind turbine converters and ESS solutions have a lot in common. Each typically operates up to the voltage and current extremes of existing silicon switch technology, and each benefits from the efficiency improvements wide-bandgap SiC switches and diodes are offering.

Reliability, robustness and a long operational lifetime are also key requirements, since access to much of the commercial and utility equipment is limited due to location and weather.

This webinar presents Infineon's solution offerings from battery management to sensing, control and communications, and how they are an ideal and informed partner across the range of renewable energy applications.

Infineon's continued commitment to improving its IGBTs, MOSFETs and SiC technology, along with the development of innovative packaging techniques, provides customers with a trustworthy partner that understands the unique challenges faced in these applications.
