- Versatile 4kW power converter serves as power system’s building block
Electrical Design Description
The power train of Crane's High Voltage DC-DC converter uses a highly efficient topology to minimize size, weight and dissipation.
Multiple modules are incorporated into the DC-DC converter. The input module serves as the high voltage electrical interface to the aircraft. It contains functions that ensure compliance with RF emissions, RF susceptibility, lightning and inrush current control. The supervisory module interfaces with aircraft control and monitoring functions. It provides protection and surveillance functions for the DC-DC converter.
