PowerSim IGBT Modules

Powerex, Inc. recently added several new NX-Series IGBT modules to its PowerSim app: CM200DX-34SA CM600DXL-34SA CM225DX-24S1 CM300DX-24S1 CM450DX-24S1 CM600DX-24S1

Parts ending in S1 denote the 6.1 Generation NX-Series IGBT product line, incorporating the 6.1 (Carrier Stored Trench Bipolar Transistor) CSTBT™ silicon, facilitating a very efficient, economical, robust inverter design.

New design effort is minimized, as the 6.1 Generation NX-Series employs the same standard packaging and features previously introduced for the 5th and 6th Generation

PowerSim can be used to calculate power loss and thermal conditions, both average and peak, of Powerex power semiconductors in 2-level, 3-phase inverters, based on operating conditions provided by the user.  It is available for both Android and iOS.

The program's main purpose is to aid in device selection and performance validation as well as provide a starting point for a system's thermal design.

Module data for this app is consistently updated via the company's online database.
