With the development and improvement of semiconductor devices, inverters that provide AC alternating energy to domestic or industrial loads have become popular. These are used in multiple applications from DC continuous energy sources or battery energy storage sources, offering versatility, supply security and efficiency in both single-phased and three-phased power supplies.
Inverters are static converters that transform direct current into alternating current through the use of semiconductor switches that have been developed in recent decades, becoming more efficient, fast and cheap (MOSFETs, IGBTs, Silicon Carbide transistors, GaN transistors) with multiple topologies and control modes.
The topologies and transistor technology used affect the output voltage-frequency regulation capability and the output voltage waveform. This aspect is especially important to achieve a good integration result with the final application.
All Premium inverters are designed to provide a pure sinusoidal output voltage with a low harmonic content and THD less than 2% (16 measures average) and a maximum switching frequency component value of less than 2.5% of the fundamental.
The use of advanced semiconductors in Premium ́s inverters (HyperFast IGBT or SiC transistors) reach switching frequencies above 20 kHz with low losses, allowing a compact and a very efficient filtering stage. This stage provides the inverter with fast and robust protection against over-currents and short- circuits. All solutions use components with the latest generation of ferromagnetic materials.
Also, all inverters include an EMC output filter to meet the emissions according to industrial and railway standards.
Premium is one of the largest power supply companies in Europe, offering solutions to the industrial market being some of them in high-tech machinery, transportation, energy or extreme environments applications.
