Alternative Energy

As the depletion of fossil fuels drives our attention toward alternative energy sources to power our daily lives, MERSEN’s laminated busbars can be found in new, but familiar territory.

 
Whether it is in Solar, Wind Power, or Fuel Cells, the creation of DC energy feeds directly through MERSEN’s low inductance laminated bus bars into power modules (IGBT, SiC or GaN) and capacitor circuit, delivering the safe and efficient power our customers demand.

Public Transportation

One of the hallmarks for Alternate Energy applications is packaging components in tight confines. This laminated bus bar packs nine electrolytic capacitors in a tight package in between two rows of power modules (IGBT, SiC or GaN). This arrangement is a natural fit for laminated bus bar technology.
