Bidirectional Converters
Tech Notes
TDK Product Features
An ordinary switching power supply is capable of performing power conversion from AC to DC, DC to DC, or DC to AC. On the other hand, a bidirectional converter is a switching power supply that realizes bidirectional power conversion between AC and DC, DC and DC, or DC and AC in a single unit. The EZA series produced by TDK-Lambda consists of bidirectional DC-DC converters capable of performing both step-down and step-up operations in a single unit. It can play the role of stepping down a grid voltage (320 VDC) obtained from renewable energy, etc., to a battery voltage (48 VDC or 240 VDC), and the role of stepping up when reversing the battery voltage to the grid voltage in a single unit, thus offering advantages to the customers such as the reduction of installation space.
