Automotive Traction Inverter solutions from STMicroelectronics
Live, On Demand
The inverter controls both the traction and regenerative braking of the electric drivetrain, being the key component in the car, determining driving behavior.
In this session we will give a general introduction to the basic concepts of the traction inverter, while in the next one we will develop the two different HV and LV architecture topologies, giving also an overview about the ST wide product portfolio: discrete semiconductors including AEC-Q101 qualified IGBTs and both silicon and silicon-carbide (SiC) MOSFETs, AEC-Q100 qualified galvanically isolated IGBT and L990x MOSFET gate driver family for designing scalable, cost-effective and energy-efficient EV traction inverter solutions.
Topology: HV Architecture overview
A block diagram of a traction inverter will be introduced, focusing on the main ST product and technologies available or soon to be released.
We will also introduce a new reference design (based on SiC power module) for high power traction inverter.
Topology: LV Architecture overview
Starting from an available reference design for 48V / 5kW automotive applications, we will describe a low voltage traction solution, focusing on main ST products and technologies available or soon to be released.
ST Offer: HV products, IGBT & SiC
We will give an overview about the ST complete product portfolio: silicon and SiC power MOSFETs, IGBTs, isolated gate drivers in accordance to AEC-Q100 and AEC-Q101 standards.
ST Offer: LV products
We will give an overview about the ST complete product portfolio: STripFET™ F7 LV MOSFETs, new STripFET F8 LV MOSFETs, LV Power MOSFET for Syncronous rectification and LV Power MOSFET for Motor control, in accordance to AEC-Q100 and AEC-Q101 standards.
