With increasing demands from power systems and electronic devices with electromechanical elements, such as the movement towards electric vehicles, power and signal transfer on rotating components is becoming increasingly important.
Wind turbines produce a good amount of energy and are becoming a larger source of the overall power supply each year with more and more wind farms being constructed. However, several studies have shown that wind turbines are sources of significant levels of interharmonics.
Ferrite sheets provide the benefits of traditional soft-magnetic materials whilst providing far more flexibility and versatility, freeing you from the typical mechanical constraints of Ferrite cores. Typically well suited for RFID and EMC protection due to its flexible nature and minimal material thickness (typically less than 0.2mm), Ferrite sheets can also improve the efficiency of wireless power transfer.
Gateway Electronic Components have been awarded a Silver Senten Manten award from TDK this Autumn in recognition of the company’s unique and differentiated position in the ferrite and power sectors and the contribution made to supply competence and efficiency in the TDK distributor channel.
Having issues with your power solution? Need better Power Quality and Energy Efficiency? There are many factors that can negatively impact on the power supply, and this can cause an increase in energy drawn from the network to compensate for these issues, which in turn increases energy costs and could reduce the life expectancy of some parts.
Ferrite cores and single air gaps are very common as this technique of a single gap is able to delay the core saturation and as a results increase the cores performance. However its not all good as these relatively large single gaps cause higher fringing flux which will lead to additional copper losses in the windings, especially when operating at high frequencies. Now single gaps aren’t bad by any means as the pros out way the cons, however can we improve this technique even further and reduce the cons?
There are lots of manufactures out in the market who say they can undercut the market leaders on price, and even though this may seem to be the most cost-effective option on the day, is that the actual cost that you will pay as a business?
From simple gadgets to complex devices for consumer and industrial IoT – they all require
compact, reliable and extremely safe power supplies. In order to meet all these demands, TDK
has developed CeraCharge™, the world’s first rechargeable solid-state SMD battery.
This new technology offers a high energy density and smallest volume combined with the safety
and high volume manufacturing benefits of ceramic multilayer components.
