Resistors are part of electrical circuits that, for example, rectify current produced in alternating voltage, thereby facilitating the most efficient, environmentally friendly and reliable energy transfer possible. Resistors are used again in the eventual conversion of rectified current into usable alternating voltage.
EBG’s resistors regulate voltage, for instance, in power electronics of frequency converters for locomotives or wind turbines as well as in modern medical equipment. Their advantage is a very low temperature and voltage coefficient, a high degree of stability, high-temperature resistance, and very low tolerances
EBG produces a wide range of different ultra high-power resistors. For small designs, EBG offers resistors with power levels of between 300 W and 800 W that can be assembled directly on heat sinks. They are characterized by very good dielectric properties and partial discharge. Alternatively, EBG produces directly cooled ultra high-power resistors from 500 W to 1,700 W, as well as resistors with cable connections for flexible assembly,that eliminates problems related to clearance and creepages.
Ultra high-power resistors from EBG are used, for instance, in converters for industrial applications, converters for locomotives, trams or subways and in HVDC power transmission systems and wind power generation.
