Creating High Voltage Outputs with Multiple Converters

Many power applications require a well-regulated, high-voltage DC supply. A typical requirement is for power rails of 80 V to 120 V for applications such as tunnel lighting installations that use a string of LEDs connected in series, high power amplifiers, ultrasound transducers and motor controllers. By connecting the outputs of converters such as the Vicor DCMs in series, these voltages can be generated using standard power components. The output voltage of series-connected converters is the sum of all the individual outputs. Strings can be configured to deliver either a fixed or a variable...

ECN Interviews Ajith Jain About Energy in the Datacenter

Ajith Jain, Vicor’s director, global communications and computer unit, was recently interviewed by ECN Magazine about the challenges facing datacenter designers and the trends towards greater power efficiency. Jain covered a number of topics, including the drive to minimize the power consumed by datacenters that is not used by the IT equipment: “By using enhanced power conversion technology to cater to high power CPUs, memory and chipsets, datacenter operators can reduce power conversion losses and hence reduce the cooling requirements, which in turn reduces the total power consumed by the datacenter. This is often...

INTELEC 2013 – DC distribution: The way forward

INTELEC 2013 – DC distribution: The way forward

I recently participated at the International Telecommunications Energy Conference, INTELEC, presenting two papers as part of the High Voltage DC technical program. With its 35-year history addressing the field of power and energy in the communications industry, INTELEC yet again was able to attract some of the most interesting and knowledgeable people in the industry. I was particularly impressed by the enthusiasm around 400 Vdc distribution: there is strong real-world commitment to this approach, which has now become a reality; last year it was up for discussion and debate, but this year it is...

Maurizio Salato to present two technical papers at INTELEC 2013

Vicor’s director of systems engineering, Maurizio Salato, will present technical papers discussing 380/400 VDC distribution for telecom and datacenter power applications during INTELEC® 2013. These presentations, which are part of the High Voltage DC technical program, were co-written with other leading power experts from across the industry. The first paper, “380 VDC Ecosystem Development: Present Status and Future Challenges” will be presented with representatives from HP, Universal Electric Corporation, Juniper Networks and Emerson Network Power. Attendees will hear an overview and progress update about the ecosystem development and future direction for 380 VDC distribution...
