Infineon joins hands with Shenghong Electric to expand the energy storage market and jointly promote the development of green energy

Posted Date: 2024-01-28

2024Year1moon26Japan, Munich, Germany and Shenzhen, China]Recently, Infineon announced a cooperation with Shenghong Electric Co., Ltd., the world's leading energy Internet core power equipment and solutions leader. Infineon will provide Shenghong with industry-leading 1200 V CoolSiC MOSFET power semiconductor devices, coupled with EiceDRIVER compact 1200V single-channel isolated gate driver IC, thereby further improving the efficiency of the energy storage converter.

Driven by the "dual carbon" strategy and the wave of new energy, the domestic energy storage market has maintained sustained and rapid development in recent years. According to statistics from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, in the first half of 2023, the installed capacity of new energy storage reached 8.63 million kilowatts, which is equivalent to the total installed capacity in the previous years. The efficiency and power density of the energy storage system are important factors for product competitiveness. The system size, weight, and cost of the energy storage system are closely related to the energy conversion efficiency and directly affect the cost. Therefore, power semiconductor components play a vital role.

Mr. Yu Daihui, Senior Vice President of Infineon Technologies and Head of the Zero Carbon Industrial Power Division Greater China, said: "Silicon carbide power solutions are an important part of future green energy production and storage applications. Infineon and Shenghong The company's cooperation in the field of energy storage converters helps its energy storage systems achieve the advantages of high efficiency, small size, and light weight, and provides a solid guarantee for the realization of high reliability and high performance energy storage systems."

Mr. Wei Xiaoliang, deputy general manager of Shenghong Group, said: "After Shenghong's energy storage products use Infineon's silicon carbide devices, the compatibility and flexibility have been significantly enhanced, the efficiency has been significantly improved, the loss has been significantly reduced, and the system's heat dissipation cost has been significantly reduced. The reduction promotes the long-term efficient and stable operation of the product. Thanks to this, end users have improved operational stability and shortened the investment return cycle. These improvements have enhanced the system competitiveness of our products and improved customers' trust in our energy storage products. Trust has enhanced the brand awareness of Sinexcel. In the future, we look forward to Infineon continuing to provide high-performance and high-stability components to further enhance the competitiveness of Sinexcel products among customers."

With more than 20 years of product development and application experience in the silicon carbide field, Infineon continues to improve the advancement of silicon carbide products. Among them, the 1200V CoolSiC MOSFET, with its superior performance of high power density, can reduce losses by 50% and provide approximately 2% additional energy without increasing the battery size, which is ideal for high-performance, lightweight and compact storage. can be particularly helpful.

Using Infineon 1200 V CoolSiC MOSFET and EiceDRIVER compact 1200V single-channel isolated gate driver IC, Shenghong Electric Co., Ltd. energy storage converter can achieve high power density, minimum electromagnetic radiation and interference, high protection performance and high Reliability, the system efficiency can reach 98%, which is 1% higher than the efficiency of traditional solutions, reaching the industry-leading level, and better meeting the energy storage application needs of grid-connected and off-grid operations in domestic and overseas markets.
