Dana Inc. was recognized as the 2018 Outstanding Power Electronics Solution Provider for its Long ThermaTEK insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) cooling solutions. The award was presented during the 10th annual Green Vehicle Convention in Shanghai.
“China is a leader in the adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles and remains an important market for Dana as we expand our electrification product portfolio,” said Dwayne Matthews, president, Dana Power Technologies. “We are honored to receive this award from the China Decision Makers Consultancy, marking the fourth consecutive year our thermal-management solutions were recognized at the Green Vehicle Convention.”
Dana’s IGBT cooling technology was developed to meet the high-performance thermal requirements of today’s electric and hybrid vehicles. The precision-manufactured aluminum cooling plates provide customers with a lightweight, contaminant-free and cost-effective heat transfer solution. The company says its technology features superior flatness, a critical requirement for reducing thermal resistance to prevent IGBT chips from overheating.
Dana was previously named Outstanding Power Electronics Solution Provider at the 2017 convention. The company also was recognized as Best Battery Solution Provider in 2015 and 2016 for its research and contributions to thermal-management technologies for hybrid- and battery-electric vehicles.
