Efficient cooling due to a single-layer structure – particularly with forced cooling.
Due to better cooling – depending on design – aluminium conductors can be used as a replacement for the copper conductors. Reduction of skin and proximity losses, which is important for the use of silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) based semiconductors.
Silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium carbide (GaN) semiconductors are new materials resulting in greater energy efficiency that have smaller dimensions and are lower in weight.
Due to the lower winding capacity, the edgewise winding is also suitable at higher frequencies. The durability of the insulation is increased as practically no insulation material is required.
