Multilevel Highspeed Inverter MLI 30 descriptions

  • Turbo speed and system costs under control. Our multi-level technology enables us to keep very high motor and generator speeds of up to 180,000 rpm safely under control.
  • The control technique and high PWM frequencies reached result in considerably lower rotor losses in the electrical machine, thus leading to a significant reduction in system costs.
  • Multilevel Highspeed Inverter family undergoes double inspection in the production.

Key features

  • Field-proven sensorless speed and torque control
  • Liquid-cooled, inlet temperature <70°C (under full load conditions)
  • CAN interface
  • IP67 enclosure

MLI Technology

Drivetech MLI Technology

  • Drivetek has been applying multilevel technology to high-speed inverters (MLI) for e-motors spinning up to 180’000rpm since 2012. MLIs are used for air compressors, electric turbochargers and heat recovery applications
  • MLI technology provide cost advantage using standard IGBTs
  • Through the high PWM frequency and additional voltage level, lower pulsations of the magnetic field can be achieved, this leads to significantly lower rotor losses (eddy currents)
  • Due to the series connection of the switches, the voltage on each switch is only half of the DC Link voltage (e.g. 900V DC Link can be realized using a 600V class IGBT)
  • Multilevel technology allows significantly more complex control and error handling than 2-level architectures such: a) additional degrees of freedom, b) avoid “dangerous” power-off states in case of errors and c) control of the “N” point
  • To date, Drivetek has delivered several thousand units for a wide range of mobile fuel cell applications worldwide.
  • Drivetek has implemented all the tools to safely control multilevel inverters.
  • Drivetek’s proprietary QUASAR SW platform and Q-Control SW allow more than 300 parameters to be managed freely.
