(First embodiment)
Hereinafter, a first embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the drawings. As shown in FIG. 1, for example, the power conversion device 1 converts output power (DC power) of a solar cell 2 (DC power supply) into AC power synchronized with the commercial power system 3 and then superimposes it on the commercial power system 3. Specifically, the power conversion device 1 includes a booster circuit 41, an inverter circuit 42, and a filter circuit 43. Note that the DC power is not limited to that obtained from a solar cell, and DC power obtained by rectifying and smoothing AC power obtained from a generator that outputs AC power such as wind power generation or hydroelectric power generation may be used.

The booster circuit 41 constitutes a non-insulated booster chopper composed of a switch element S1, a DC reactor DCL, a diode D1, and a capacitor C1. The booster circuit 41 is connected to the solar cell 1 and boosts DC power by supplying a pulse to the switch element S1 with a periodic pulse whose ON duty is controlled, and supplies the boosted DC power to the inverter circuit. At this time, direct current flows through the direct current reactor DCL, the reactor generates heat, the switch element S1 is turned ON / OFF, the current flowing through the direct current reactor DCL fluctuates, and this coil is caused by the fluctuation of the magnetic field generated from the coil of the reactor. Vibrates, leading to the vibration of the DC reactor.

The inverter circuit 42 is formed by connecting the switch elements S2 to S5 in a single-phase full bridge shape, and turns ON / OFF the switch elements S2 to S4 by PWM control (a switching signal obtained by modulating a carrier wave with a modulated wave). Thus, the DC power supplied from the booster circuit 41 is converted into a pseudo sine wave AC power synchronized with the commercial power system 3.

The filter circuit 43 includes two AC reactors ACL and a capacitor C2, and attenuates a high frequency component included in the pseudo sine wave converted by the inverter circuit. At this time, the AC reactor generates heat when the output power of the inverter circuit 42 flows, and vibrates due to the high-frequency component of the pseudo sine wave.

A circuit (a boost circuit 41, an inverter circuit 42, and a filter circuit) constituting such a power conversion device 1 is a switch module IPM in which a DC reactor DCL, an AC reactor ACL, switch elements S1 to S5, and a diode D1 are collectively configured. , And other components are mounted by appropriately connecting the wiring board 12 and the like mounted with wiring.

Next, the specific structure of the power conversion device 1 will be described. FIG. 3A is a side view of the power conversion device 1 viewed from the lower wall W2 side, and FIG. 3B is a front view of the power conversion device 1 viewed from the front cover 13 side. In FIG. 3B, the front cover 13, the DC reactor DCL, and the electrical board 12 are removed for easy explanation. As shown in FIGS. 2 and 3, the power conversion device 1 includes a casing 10 that houses a DC reactor DCL, an AC reactor ACL, a switch module IPM, and an electrical board 12.

The housing 10 has a box-shaped rectangular parallelepiped shape having an opening on the front surface. Specifically, the housing 10 surrounds the four sides with an upper side wall W1, a lower side wall W2, a right side wall W3, and a left side wall W4, and has a back member 11. The casing 10 is integrally formed by die-casting the side walls W1 to W4 and the back member 11 with an aluminum alloy (other metals or other alloys may be used).

A DC reactor DCL, an AC reactor ACL, an electrical board 12 and the like are incorporated from the opening of the housing 10. The opening of the housing 10 is closed by the front cover 13, and the power conversion device 1 uses the back member 11 of the housing 10 by attaching it to the wall of the building. In addition, a wiring hole 24 is opened in the lower side wall W2, and wiring for inputting the output power of the solar cell from here or wiring for outputting the output power of the solar cell converted into alternating current is provided in the housing 10. Be drawn. In addition, it is waterproofed with putty etc. at the time of construction.

Several reinforcing ribs 22 are formed from the side walls W1 to W4 of the housing 10 to the back member 11, and the reinforcing ribs 22 are integrally formed with mounting spacers 21 for attaching the electrical board 12. The mounting spacer 21 is provided with a screw hole, and the electrical board 12 is fixed to the mounting spacer 21 by screwing.

The back member 11 is a die-cast aluminum alloy, has excellent thermal conductivity, and has a function of easily radiating the heat in the casing to the outside. In the present invention, fins 11a to 11c are formed on the outside of the back member 11 to further enhance the heat radiation action. Two recesses 17a and 17b are formed in the back member 11, and a DC reactor DCL and an AC reactor ACL are arranged respectively. A plurality of fins 11a and 11b are formed on the outer sides of the recesses 17a and 17b, respectively. The switch module IPM is disposed between the two recesses 17 of the back member 11, and a plurality of fins 11c are formed between the two recesses 17a and 17b outside the back member 11 where the switch module IPM is disposed. Has been. Thereby, the DC reactor and the AC reactor are arranged on both sides of the electrical board 12.

The fins 11a to 11c are provided so as to extend from the upper side wall W1 to the lower side wall W2, and an air passage through which cooling air flows from the lower side wall W2 to the upper side wall W1 between the plurality of fins 11a to 11c. Is configured. The fins 11a and 11b correspond to a heat radiating portion that mainly radiates heat from the AC reactor ACL and the DC reactor DCL, and the fin 11c mainly radiates heat from the switch module IPM. Since these dents 17a and 17b, the heat radiating portion, the fins 11a to 11c, and the back member 11 are integrally formed by die casting, the whole contributes to the heat radiating action with respect to each other. And does not act as a dedicated heat dissipation part for the switch module. For example, when the temperature of the DC reactor DCL becomes particularly high, not only the fins 11a of the recess 17a but also the back member 11 around the recess 17a contributes to the heat radiation action. Moreover, when the atmospheric temperature in the housing | casing 11 becomes high, the housing | casing 11 whole contributes to a thermal radiation effect | action.

As shown in FIG. 4A, the DC reactor DCL is formed by winding coils 32 on the left and right sides of a core material (iron core) 31 having a square ring shape. Further, the direct current reactor DCL includes an attachment member 33 for attaching the direct current reactor DCL to the housing 10. The attachment member 33 is divided into an upper member 33a and a lower member 33b. The upper member 33a is provided on the upper side of the core member 31 and the lower member 33b is provided on the lower side of the core member 31 and connected by the long screw 25. It attaches to the core material 31 by this. In addition, since the mounting member 33 is formed by bending a metal plate member, the space between the core material 31 and the mounting member 33 is maintained in order to maintain the insulation between the core material 31 and the mounting member 33. Bonded with an insulating adhesive. The lower member 33b is provided with a through hole 34 through which a screw for screwing the DC reactor DCL to the housing 10 is passed, and the DC reactor DCL is arranged with respect to the arrangement surface of the housing 10 on which the DC reactor DCL is arranged. The core material 31 (coil 32) is attached so as to be vertical.

Further, as shown in FIG. 4 (b), the DC reactor DCL is configured such that the core material 31 (coil 32) is attached horizontally to the arrangement surface of the housing 10 on which the reactor DCL is arranged using the attachment member 33. May be. The attachment member 33 is provided substantially parallel to the coil 32 wound around the core material 31 and attached to the housing 10. The attachment member 33 is bent in the vertical direction from the attachment portion 33 c and sandwiches the core material 31 from the left and right. It has support parts 33d and 33e to support. The attachment portion 33c is provided with a through hole 34 through which a screw is passed, and is fixed to the housing 10 by screwing. The support portions 33d and 33e are provided with recesses, and the core material 31 is fitted into the recesses and the core material 31 is supported by the support portions 33d and e. Moreover, it is good to provide a clearance gap between the attachment part 33c of the attachment member 33 and the coil, and when the distance between the attachment part 33c of the attachment member 33 and the coil 33 is short, it is between the attachment member 33 and the coil. An insulating sheet having thermal conductivity may be sandwiched between the two.

The AC reactor ACL differs from the DC reactor DCL in that one coil is wound around the core material, but only two coils are wound around the core material, and the other configurations are the same. Since the configuration can be used, the description is omitted.

The method of winding the coil and the shape of the core are not limited to those in the embodiment. For example, an E-shaped or toroidal core can be used, and similar effects can be obtained for various deformations. It is something that can be done.

Next, the depressions 17a and 17b will be described. FIG. 5A is a cross-sectional view taken along line AA of FIG. 3 when the reactors ACL and DCL shown in FIG. 4A are arranged in the recesses 17a and 17b. FIG. 5B is a cross-sectional view taken along line AA of FIG. 3 when the reactors ACL and DCL shown in FIG. 4B are arranged in the recesses 17a and 17b. FIG. 5 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line AA of the recess 17a, but the illustration is omitted because the recess 17b has the same configuration.

As shown in FIGS. 3B and 5, the depressions 17 a and 17 b have a depth that allows the reactors ACL and DCL to be entirely accommodated therein. The recess 17a has a substantially quadrangular opening and is composed of inner walls W5, W6, W7, W8 and a bottom surface W9. A plurality of ribs 16a to 16c (protrusions) projecting from the bottom surface W9 of the recesses 17a and 17b toward the reactor ACL and DCL, and extending from the inner wall W5 side to the inner wall W6 side at the bottom surface W9 of the recesses 17a and 17b. Is provided. Reactor mounting spacers 23 are formed integrally with the rib 16 on the inner wall W7 side and the rib 16c inner wall W8 side of the rib 16a. Moreover, it protrudes toward the reactor ACL, DCL side from the inner walls W7, W8 of the recesses 17a, 17b, and extends toward the opening of the recesses 17a, 17b from the bottom surface W9 side to the inner walls W7, W8 of the recesses 17a, 17b, respectively. A plurality of ribs 18a, 18b (protrusions) are provided. The ribs 16a to 16c, 18a, and 18b are not limited to such shapes, and various shapes such as a columnar shape, a conical shape, a polygonal columnar shape, a polygonal pyramid shape, and a hemispherical shape are possible. A structure in which ribs are continuously arranged is also possible. These ribs 16a to 16c, 18a, and 18b are in close contact with a resin that is injected and cured later, and have an effect of increasing the thermal conductivity between the resin 15 and the bottom surface W9 (heat radiation portion).

Reactor mounting spacer 23 is provided with a screw hole, and the through hole of lower member 33b of reactors ACL and DCL is screwed in accordance with this screw hole. By doing so, the reactors ACL and DCL are screwed and fixed so that a gap 14 is formed between the attachment members 33 of the reactors ACL and DCL and the bottom surface W9 and a predetermined interval is formed between the coil 32 and the bottom surface W9. Is done. Further, since the height of the rib 16 and the height of the reactor mounting spacer 23 are formed to the same height, the mounting members 33 of the reactors ACL and DCL are disposed in contact with the rib 16.

After the reactors ACL and DCL are disposed in the recesses 17a and 17b, a liquid resin 15 having electrical insulation and thermal conductivity (at least thermal conductivity higher than that of air) is injected. This resin 15 is injected into the recesses 17a and 17b up to the height of the coils 32 of the reactors ACL and DCL. In the first embodiment, as shown in FIGS. 5A and 5B, the core material 31 and the coil 32 are completely embedded in the resin 15. The liquid resin 15 is injected between the inner walls W5 to W8 of the recesses 17a and 17b and the reactors ACL and DCL so that there is no place where the resin 15 such as air bubbles does not go around, and the resin is also put into the gap 14 of the coil of the reactor. It is preferable to inject so that it may enter. When the viscosity of the resin 15 is high, the pressure injection surrounding the depressions 17a and 17b is also possible at the time of injection. The injected liquid resin 15 is thermally cured (ultraviolet curing depending on the type of resin) in a predetermined constant temperature chamber. By filling the depressions 17 a and 17 b with the resin 15, the heat generated by the reactors ACL and DCL can be radiated to the depressions 17 a and 17 b, the heat radiation unit, and the back member 11 through the resin 15. Heat generation of the reactors ACL and DCL is also performed to the recesses 17a and 17b, the heat radiating portion, and the back member 11 through the ribs 16a to 16c, 18a and 18b, and the heat dissipation efficiency is reduced by the distance that the heat generation transmits the resin 15 Will be better. That is, the ribs 16a to 16c, 18a, 18b (in this embodiment, aluminum alloy) contribute to the heat radiation of the reactor better than the heat transfer rate of the resin.

As mentioned above, according to the power converter device 1 of 1st Embodiment, since the heat | fever of reactor ACL and DCL can be transmitted to the thermal radiation part 11 via the resin 15 whose heat conductivity is better than air, it is better. A heat dissipation effect can be obtained. In addition, since the insulating resin 15 wraps around a predetermined distance between the coil 32 and the bottom surface W9, an electrical short circuit between the reactors ACL and DCL and the casing 10 can be suppressed.

Further, according to the power conversion device 1 of the first embodiment, the reactors ACL and DCL are integrally cured by the resin 15 in the recesses 17a and 17b, so that the vibration of the reactors ACL and DCL itself is suppressed. Further, since the mounting members 33b for fixing the reactors ACL and DCL to the bottom surfaces W9 of the recesses 17a and 17b and the screwing portions are also embedded in the resin 15 and cured integrally, the vibrations from the reactors ACL and DCL are transmitted to the bottom surface W9. Is suppressed. Further, the vibrations of the recesses 17 a and 17 b themselves are also suppressed by the resin 15.

Further, according to the power conversion device 1 of the first embodiment, the attachment members 33 of the reactors ACL and DCL are arranged in contact with the ribs 16. For this reason, the heat of reactor ACL, DCL is directly transmitted to the bottom face W9. Thereby, the better heat dissipation effect of reactor ACL, DCL can be acquired.

Further, according to the power conversion apparatus 1 of the first embodiment, the reactors ACL and DCL transmit heat to the inner walls W5 to W8 to dissipate heat, so that a better heat dissipation effect can be obtained.

Further, according to the power conversion device 1 of the first embodiment, the reactors ACL and DCL are fixed by screwing. Thereby, even if the reactor ACL and DCL peel from the resin 15 by vibration, the reactor ACL and DCL can be kept fixed at the place. For this reason, it is possible to prevent the reactors ACL and DCL peeled from the resin 15 from moving due to vibration and coming into contact with other components.

Further, according to the power conversion device 1 of the first embodiment, the recesses 17a and 17b have a depth that allows the coil 32 to be accommodated in the recesses 17a and 17b, and the resin 15 has a recess 17a that is greater than the height of the coil 32. 17b. As a result, heat generated in the coil 32 is transmitted through the resin 15 to the inner walls W5 to W8 and the bottom surface W9 of the recesses 17a and 17b, so that a better heat dissipation effect can be obtained.

Further, according to the power conversion device 1 of the first embodiment, the DC reactor DCL and the AC reactor ACL are arranged on both sides of the electrical board 12. For this reason, since a heat source disperse | distributes and it becomes difficult to mutually interfere with each other's heat, the better heat dissipation effect can be acquired.

(Second Embodiment)
Next, a second embodiment of the present invention will be described. In the first embodiment, the reactors ACL and DCL are screwed to the bottom of the recess 17, but in the second embodiment, as shown in FIGS. 6A and 6B, the reactor mounting spacer 23 is attached. Provided outside the recess 17, the attachment member 33 is fixed to the reactor attachment spacer 23 with screws. FIG. 6A is a diagram in which the reactors ACL and DCL are attached to the recesses 17a and 17b so that the core material 31 (coil 32) is substantially perpendicular to the arrangement surface to the housing 10. FIG. FIG. 6B is a diagram in which the reactors ACL and DCL are attached to the recesses 17a and 17b so that the core material 31 (coil 32) is substantially parallel to the surface on which the housing 10 is arranged.

At this time, the mounting member 33 is shaped so that the core 31 and the coil 32 are suspended in the recess 17. Except for this, the configuration is the same as in the first embodiment, and a description thereof will be omitted.

Even in this case, the reactors ACL and DCL are screwed and fixed so that the gap 14 is provided between the attachment members 33 of the reactors ACL and DCL and the bottom surface W9 and a predetermined interval is provided between the coil 32 and the bottom surface W9. The At this time, it is preferable that there is a gap between the rib 16 and the coil 32.

Even if the resin 15 is filled in the depression in such a state, the heat of the reactors ACL and DCL can be transmitted to the depressions 17a and 17b through the resin 15 having thermal conductivity more than air. Can be obtained. Further, the reactors ACL and DCL are screwed to the depression 17 so that the coil 32 and the depressions 17a and 17b are spaced apart from each other. For this reason, the short circuit with the coil 32 and the hollows 17a and 17b can be suppressed.

Further, according to the power conversion device of the second embodiment, the back member 11 does not completely cover the openings of the depressions 17a and 17b, but has a gap with respect to the opening of the depressions 17a and before the opening. Will be placed. For example, when the attachment member 33 is attached to the reactor attachment spacer 23, a part of the opening of the recess 17a (here, the inner walls W5 and W6 of the recesses 17a and 17b) is not covered by the attachment member 33 and has a gap. ing. Further, for example, as shown in FIGS. 6A and 6B, the attachment member 33 is floated from the rear member 11 (opening surfaces of the recesses 17a and 17b) by the reactor attachment spacer and attached with a gap. .

Thereby, the cooling air flows between the mounting member 33 and the resin 15 from these gaps, and an air passage is formed through which the air flowing into these gaps from between the mounting member 33 and the resin 15 escapes. . For this reason, since the resin 15 and the inside of the attachment member 33 (the attachment side of the core material 31 and the coil) or the core material 31 and the coil 32 exposed from the resin 15 can be cooled, the heat dissipation effect can be improved. . The cooling air may use air flowing by natural convection. However, since the inside of the housing 10 is a sealed space, a better heat radiation effect can be obtained by providing a fan or the like in the housing 10 and forcibly circulating the air. Is obtained.

As mentioned above, although one embodiment of the present invention was described, the above explanation is for making an understanding of the present invention easy, and does not limit the present invention. It goes without saying that the present invention can be changed and improved without departing from the gist thereof, and that the present invention includes equivalents thereof.

For example, in this embodiment, the reactors ACL and DCL are provided in the depressions 17 and the resin 15 is injected so that the reactors ACL and DCL are completely filled. However, the depressions 17a may not be provided, and the reactors ACL and DCL are completely provided. It is not necessary to inject the resin until it is buried in. For example, if the resin is injected to such an extent that the gap 14 is filled or more, the heat generated in the coil 32 is transmitted to the resin 15 through the core member 31 and the mounting member 33, and this heat is transmitted from the resin 15 to the bottom surface W9. Therefore, a better heat dissipation effect can be obtained.

Further, if at least a part of the coil 32 is embedded in the resin 15, the heat of the coil 32 can be directly transmitted to the bottom surface W9 via the resin 15, so that a better heat dissipation effect can be obtained. Thus, if the amount of the resin 15 injected is reduced, as shown in FIG. 7, the depths of the recesses 17a and 17b can be reduced, so that the housing 10 can be downsized.

Further, for example, the fins 11a and 11b are provided so as to protrude on the inner walls W8 and W9 side and the bottom surface W9 side of the recesses 17a and 17b, but may be provided on the inner walls W5 and W6 side. In this case, if the reactors ACL and DCL as shown in FIG. 5A are fixed, fins are provided on all the surfaces where the coils 32 face each other, so that the reactors ACL and DCL are efficiently radiated. be able to.
