Energy Distribution

The adoption of energy storage devices, whose reserve capacity can be used for balancing purposes, peak-load shaving or to shift loads, is increasingly widespread in energy distribution networks. Two use cases are particularly important: their use in residential or commercial building to help reduce consumers’ electricity bills by reducing energy consumption from the grid during peak hours and to help avoid stability and voltage drop issues associated with the fast-charging schedules of the increasing number of electric vehicles (EV). Interacting with the grid, the batteries and potentially with solar panels, the power converters at the heart of these systems must operate with high-efficiency and superior reliability over time. Semiconductor technologies and products are key enablers to competitive designs and we have a range of products and solutions including silicon-carbide (SiC) MOSFETs and diodes, HV super-junction MOSFETs and IGBTs, application-specific analog products (ASSP) – including and IGBT and MOSFET gate drivers – and STM32 microcontrollers that can help developers meet these challenges.

Commercial Battery Storage Systems

Commercial energy storage battery systems running over hundred kW are designed to level out peaks in electricity use (peak shaving), shift loads and provide emergency backup and frequency regulation to ensure grid stability and power quality. Energy

DC Fast Charging Station

The increasing number of Electric Vehicles (EVs) on the roads brought about the need for more charging stations, including DC fast charging stations and CHAdeMO-compliant fast charging stations.  DC fast charging stations provide vehicles with level-

Home Battery Storage Systems

Home battery storage systems, combined with renewable energy generation (including solar), can make a house energy-independent and help better manage energy flow.  Excess electricity and energy stored in the battery during the day will help feed the
