Medium Frequency Transformer
Solutions for insulated high power density converters
SuperGrid Institute oﬀers a complete solution for testing medium frequency transformers in various conditions: no-load, short-circuit, full-load, and with two types of excitation waveforms: sinusoïdal and square full wave shapes. Being able to test the components in real conditions and to characterise them accurately before their implementation inside the whole converter is a real advantage.
- Characterisation of Medium Frequency Transformer
- Measuring power losses
- Current/Voltage Waveforms sampling
- Characterisation of magnetic circuits
SuperGrid Institute is also equipped with the means to magnetically characterise materials in medium frequency condition.
Laboratory & Equipment
Our Medium Frequency Transformer (MFT) test platform is able to perform the following test conﬁguration:
Medium Frequency Transformer characterisation
The measurements of power losses and eﬃciency can be carried out with excellent accuracy on the complete frequency range.
The continual rise of renewable energies around the world and the need to transport this energy over very long distances will result in the predominance of DC grids and meshed DC grids that will complement or replace the traditional AC grids architecture in the near future. These new DC network architectures will consist of many power converter structures involving power transformers.
The technological advances in the ﬁeld of power electronics make it possible to use “large GAP” components working within high frequency range (typically 1 kHz up to 100 kHz). As a consequence, the size and the weight of passive components can be drastically reduced.
