2 kW Bidirectional Reference Design for UPS Released

August 24, 2017 by Texas Instruments

Texas Instruments introduced the industry’s first 2-kilowatt (kW) isolated bidirectional DC/DC converter reference design for 48V to 400V uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and energy storage systems.

Designers can leverage this reference design, which features innovative TI analog and embedded technologies, to achieve greater than 93 percent efficiency in next-generation UPS, energy storage, power banks and battery charger applications.  Download the new reference design today. 

Key benefits of TI’s new isolated bi-directional DC/DC converter reference design:

  • 48-V to 400-V range: The industry’s first design to provide support for energy storage supplies with a wide range of input voltages.
  • A fully tested design with TI products to help designers quickly meet ENERGY STAR guidelines and quicken time to market is available.

For applications with wide-range voltage needs such as electric vehicles (EVs) or industrial servers, the integration of a backup converter and charger into a single power stage, coupled with the compact board space of this reference design, allows developers to more easily implement the transfer of energy to designs. The reference design includes TI’s industry-leading analog technology, including the 100V NexFET™ CSD19536KCS power MOSFET and half-bridge UCC27211A gate driver, for achieving high efficiency. The INA240 current sense amplifier provides accurate current measurements, while the AMC1301 reinforced isolated amplifier  and the UCC21520 isolated half-bridge gate driver provide an effective option for sensing the isolated high-voltage rail and driving the high-voltage full-bridge respectively. The Piccolo™ TMS320F28033 microcontroller implements system control digitally.
