Inverter/Stack Design Optimization & Assembly

Inverter/Stack Design Optimization & Assembly

When it comes to power inverter or power stack design, our customers are mainly looking at increasing power density (kW/liter), minimizing conversion losses (Efficiency %), reducing cost ($/kW) and shrinking size and weight of the overall system.

Thanks to its undisputed reputation in bus bar, cooling, fusing, capacitor design and manufacturing, Mersen is your preferred partner to assist you during the development phase of your Silicon or Silicon Carbide-based Inverter/Stack, bringing a technical cross-expertise on these 4 key products to push the optimization to the limit.

Benefits Capabilities Examples

Benefits

Design control of key customized components down to materials level

Based upon your already existing electrical design and schematics, Mersen teams will jointly discuss the possible design optimization paths, over the 4 key constituent parts of your Inverter/Stack: Cooling, Busbar, Fuse and Capacitors in order to address your most-wanted requirements (efficiency, switching frequency, high T° constraint, size/weight limitation, cost…). This will impact the choice and design of each and every components as well as the selection of the appropriate material (Copper, aluminum, dielectric, polymer…) in a interdependence way.

For other surrounding components (Gate Drivers, Resistors, Magnetics, power modules…) Mersen has already established close collaborations with reputed suppliers who can also be part of the co-design team, beside Mersen engineers.  

Accelerated time-to-market

Simultaneously working on several key components design can definitely speed-up the development phase and differentiate yourselves from the competition

System cost optimization / scale effect

This preferential access to 4 main passives (Cooling, busbar , capacitors and fuses) sourced from Mersen will result in an interesting price positioning when the 4 products are ordered from us.
Since we handle rather large cumulative volumes, we are in the position to get better pricings from other component suppliers: modules, connectors, GDU, resistors, inductors…  

A total customization approach

No pre-defined technical bricks. We are agnostic towards your choice of circuit topology and power modules type (SiC, GaN, Silicon…).  Customer comes with his design, as it is. We offer a high degree of customization to develop your inverter/stack

For any kind of customers and business models

  • Inverter / Stack design-house with limited or no production capability. 
  • OEM / stack and inverter manufacturers: specialists and generalists
  • System Integrators:  Defined converter not their core business

Capabilities

Software simulation of system

Mersen is using complete tool-set of simulation software in order to compute any designs in all physical dimensions: Mechanical, Thermal, Electrical, Electromagnetics. These tools allow us to anticipate the multi-physics interactions between all the components and thus, to select each-other in an optimal mix.

Assembly service

Upon request, for small and medium series, Mersen also offers an assembly service to build YOUR inverter/stack

A global footprint to address any regions
