Unit prevents fault energy from reaching damage levels. Having ~30 years MTBF, breaker consists of two 4.5 kV IGBT’s in series with 16 x 8 x 6 in. (W x D x H) dimensions. Featuring sub-microsecond opening and closing times, product is used in wind- and solar-power, battery storage and flywheels.
Original Press Release:
Diversified Technologies' New PowerMod™ Solid-State DC Circuit Breaker Assures Safe MVDC Power Systems Operation
DTI’s PowerMod™ Solid-State DC Circuit Breaker takes power off of the load and then closes for reuse to let MVDC power systems operate safely.
Diversified Technologies, Inc. has introduced a new compact solid-state MVDC circuit breaker that safely interrupts full load currents in sub-microseconds and then closes for reuse.
DTI’s PowerMod™ Solid-State DC Circuit Breaker takes power off of the load and then closes for reuse to enable MVDC power systems to operate safely. Featuring sub-microsecond opening and closing times, this compact MVDC circuit breaker prevents the fault energy from reaching damaging levels and provides multi-kHz switching for continuous controlled power applications from 1 to 50 kVDC.
Exhibiting > 99.7% switching efficiency and ~30 years MTBF,DTI’s PowerMod™ Solid-State DC Circuit Breakers support micro-grid alternative sources and storage systems, including wind- and solar-power, battery storage, and flywheels, with various voltages, frequencies, and power levels. Comprised of two 4.5 kV IGBT’s in series, each breaker measures 16”W x 8”D x 6”H.
DTI PowerMod™ Solid-State DC Circuit Breakers are priced from $9,995.00 and provide > 1 million hours predicted reliability per MIL-HDBK-217F.
