Failures in electronic components are main cause for downtimes and maintenance cost because of the thermomechanical stress.
Heraeus technologies contribute to reduce cost of energy:
- Higher reliablity and better maintenance lead to lower downtime. As a result the annual energy production will be higher and operational expenditure will decrease.
Heraeus technologies reduces maintenance cost and increases the annual energy production.
Die Top System
, an electronic packaging system used among others in inverters, reduces thermal stress and increases the modules lifetime. The new system enables the use of copper wire in combination with sinter technology. It significantly improves the electrical, thermal and reliability performance of the die connection, and effects the whole module performance:
- Up to 20x higher module lifetime.
- Higher temperature resistance, enables junction temperatures of e.g. 200°C.
for temperature control enable a better utilization of the wind turbine’s capacity and increase security.
slip ring contacts
for data transmission to the rotor blades are further decreasing operational costs.
