SOLUTIONS FOR

RESEARCH

Imperix offers scalable solutions for research in power electronics, allowing engineers to accelerate their prototyping activities, thanks to ready-to-use hardware solutions.

Imperix solutions allow to go early to the lab and challenge the converter control in a real-world environment!

Power electronic systems

Focus on what matters!

What if experimenting could be as simple as conducting simulations? That’s the purpose of our solutions! Imperix products enable engineers to focus exclusively on what matters the most: their research!

Thanks to entirely ready-to-use control and power hardware, as well as programming tools that integrate directly in widespread simulation software, moving from simulation to real-world experimentation has never been so easy.

Practically any converter topology can be implemented using a combination of imperix products. In some cases, our product kits can turn out handy as well.

Example of a 3-phase to 3-phase Solid-State Transformer (SST) based on a 4-port Dual-Active Bridge (DAB).

Unrivalled flexibility

The B-Box RCP possesses unique capabilities that make it extremely configurable and able to adapt swifty to demanding needs.

Extensive monitoring

Extracting experimental results is facilitated by datalogging from BB Control, granting access to millions of data points and all available control variables.

Cutting-edge performance

Relying on imperix power modules guarantees state-of-the art performance, notably with the newest SiC IGBTs in the PES series.

Reach world-class results in no time!

The MMC bundle is an example of a ready-to-use system.
Dedicated to Modular Multilevel Converters it allows engineers to focus on their work, alleviating potential hardware issues.

Microgrid Systems

Explore absolute controllability!

What if it would be possible to entirely change every control loops inside a power converter?

With imperix’s solutions, engineers are directly involved with the complete converter control, down to computation of the PWM duty-cycles!

This grants an absolute freedom that allows to entirely re-think converter controls and imagine new paradigms for the electric grids of tomorrow.

Imperix offers product bundles that particularly address grid-related applications, with possible customizations.

Go beyond simulation!

Because simulation is always technically limited to what is modeled (and thus expected!), going beyond simulation is often key to face real-world challenges and truly validate innovative concepts.

Validate your models!

Having both the simulation and the low-voltage prototype side-by-side allows to continuously compare results, hence enabling to develop precise and fully validated system models.

Prove your ideas!

Since many things are only truly demonstrated once they are proven experimentally, being able to produce real-world results quickly and easily certainly helps producing impactful results.

Simulation versus experimental results

With the Automated Code Generation (ACG) SDK, switching from simulation to real time execution of the control software can be done instantly, allowing engineers to work comparatively and iteratively.

Experiment in the real world!
The microgrid test bench is a multi-purpose test bench for power electronics. It is able to support both HIL simulation and low-voltage experimentation with an easy-to-use reconfigurable hardware.
