Technical Universities often provide specialised courses in partnership with companies requiring advanced research. This also provides students, upon graduating, a deeper knowledge of a subject and benefits a potential employer. Courses on power electronics are now offered at many educational institutions.
One university, with a department specialising in power electronics, required programmable power supplies for a study into the robustness and reliability of power semiconductors. A 15kW 0V to 20V output was required at around 700A. Ideally, a three-phase 400Vac input was needed.
They contacted their TDK-Lambda salesperson regarding the GENESYS+™ programmable power supply series, who recommended the 3U high GSP-20-750-3P400. This met the researcher’s needs with a 0~20V and 0~750A output and a three-phase input voltage range of 342~460Vac.
