Power Module

A power electronic module provides the physical containment for several power components, usually Power semiconductor devices. This package provides an easy way to cool the devices and to connect them to the outer circuit.

Classical example of structures availables as power modules are:

  • switch (MOSFET, IGBT), with antiparallel Diode;
  • half bridge (inverter leg, with two switches and their corresponding diodes)
  • three-phases inverter (six switches and the corresponding diodes)

Famous quotes containing the word power:

    ...I am who I am because I’m a black female.... When I was health director in Arkansas ... I could talk about teen-age pregnancy, about poverty, ignorance and enslavement and how the white power structure had imposed it—only because I was a black female. I mean, black people would have eaten up a white male who said what I did.
    Joycelyn Elders (b. 1933)
