Smart Magnetics Innovation by Exxelia: Enhancing Next-Generation Resonant and Bidirectional Power Converters

Exxelia, global manufacturer of complex passive components and subsystems introduces groundbreaking innovations in smart magnetics technology, specifically tailored for resonant bidirectional power converters. These advancements are set to redefine efficiency and performance standards across a spectrum of applications.

The advent of electrification, especially in electric or hybrid mobility including EVTOLs, buses, heavy vehicles, military/defense applications, off-road vehicles, and space thrusters, as well as electric energy storage systems & Smart Grid networks, implies the management and storage of large quantities of electrical energy. This necessitates the use of specific architectures such as DAB, LLC, and interleaved converters. These structures enable very high efficiencies.

EXXELIA SMART MAGNETICS INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGY
Combines an inductor and a transformer into a single ultra-compact/miniaturized, lightweight component, regardless of the inductance value,
for a seamless integration.

• High Power Applications (up to 300kW)
• High Frequency (10-500kHz): fits next-generation semiconductors (SiC, GaN) : Enables compact, lightweight designs.
• High Efficiency: minimizing losses, achieving efficiencies above 99% even at high frequencies.
• Lower Total cost of ownership: Ensuring straightforward integration and optimized system costs.
• EMI Reduction: Enhances electromagnetic compatibility for reliable operation.
