Uninterruptible power supply provider AEG Power Solutions (AEG) has launched a modular DC process power supply system for industrial applications with high power demands.
AEG ‘s Thyrobox DC-3 power supply system is designed on the base of the B12-IGBT-chopper technology and has a modular structure. The smallest Thyrobox DC-3 has an output power of 1,500A and can be modularly expanded to 30,000A.
According to Germany’s AEG, load voltages from 20V up to 500V can be achieved with the new product. The system also allows a configuration with redundant modules. The Thyrobox DC-3 operates so that more power modules can be upgraded by parallel connection to an existing DC system.
Due to a high load current and load voltage with a small output as well as an optimised supply network load over the control range, the DC system has a high power factor, claimed the company.
The DC system can be connected to a low or medium voltage grid. Separate power transformer and secondary side wiring with bus bars or cables are optional.
The product was developed at the company's competence centre in Warstein, Germany, where it will also be produced.
