Idealpower Launches Power Module

(MENAFN- IdealPower Launches Power Module

Ideal Power Inc. (NASDAQ: IPWR) watched its shares climb Wednesday. The company, pioneering the development and commercialization of the highly efficient and broadly patented B-TRAN bidirectional semiconductor power switch, today announced the launch of its first commercial product, the SymCoolTM Power Module. This multi-die B-TRANTM module, rated at 1200V 100A and incorporating double-sided cooling, is designed to meet the very low conduction loss needs of the solid-state circuit breaker (SSCB) market. Modules can be paralleled to achieve a wide range of high power SSCB ratings for utility, industrial and military applications.
“The introduction of our first commercial product marks a pivotal development for Ideal Power's B-TRANTM technology, and we could not be more excited,” stated CEO Dan Brdar.“The SymCool Power Module was designed specifically to enable SSCBs to deliver very low conduction losses. B-TRANTM-enabled SSCBs are expected to be smaller and more efficient than SSCBs using traditional semiconductor switches while operating orders of magnitude faster than conventional electromechanical breakers.
“Circuit breakers continuously conduct current,” reads Wednesday's press release,“so it is critical to keep conduction losses to a minimum. The SymCoolTM Power Module exhibits dramatically lower conduction losses compared to IGBTs, thereby allowing for energy savings that are necessary as power grids are modernized.
“In particular, integration of renewable energy sources and energy storage systems into the grid will require circuit breakers that do not waste the precious energy generated by solar or wind. The low conduction losses of the SymCoolTM Power Module meet this requirement.
IPWR shares advanced 40 cents, or 3.4%, to $12.15.
