Abstract

The disclosure is related to a capacitor bank arrangement in a power converter device. The disclosure generally addresses an issue of arranging the capacitors, such as in a dc-link capacitor bank, in order to achieve a low inductance commutation loop. A solution is suggested in which two paralleled sets of power-planes or bus-bars are used to lower an inductance of a commutation loop. Within such arrangements, capacitors may be oriented such that there is a magnetic flux cancellation in between adjacent capacitors.
