Magnetic Session: 3DPower™ a Tech Disruption in Power Electronics

Speakers: Claudio Cañete & Patrick Fouassier

Location: 210A

We would like to invite you to join us at APEC conference! This year we will be part of the Magnetic session, to be held on Thursday March 21st, 2019 (08:30h - 11:25h). Location: 210A / Chair: George Slama, Carl Walkery.The conference has enjoyed a growing success throughout the years. APEC is now considered to be the leading conference for practicing power electronics professionals. The APEC program addresses a broad range of topics in the use, design, manufacture and marketing of all kinds of power electronics equipment. The combination of high-quality Professional Education Seminars, a full program of refereed papers and an overflowing Exhibit Hall consistently provides an invaluable education each year.

About 3DPower Technology: 


Premo 3DPower™ is a revolutionary concept in power magnetics integration. Existing magnetics within conventional HEV On-Board Chargers and DCDC converters are merged into one single and compact product. Maximum power density is achieved by reducing the size and increasing the power dissipation with the latest high thermal conductive materials. Designs can be fully customized to meet any customer requirement.

It is the first product to integrate two magnetics components that share the same core and feature two orthogonal magnetic fields at all points within the core. 

3DPower™ Pot-Core uses a custom pot-core shape where 2 inductive components are integrated. One of them is placed in the pot-core itself and the other one outside the pot-core as if it were a toroid. This product allows us to solve the engineering challenge of integrating magnetics: in this case it consists of a choke and a transformer. Unlike other magnetics integration technologies, both components share the whole core volume in the 3DPower™. For this purpose, the magnetic field of one component is orthogonal to the other, resulting in 2 independent and fully uncoupled magnetic elements.
