PPM Building

Introduction

PPM Power is a division of Pulse, Power & Measurement Ltd (PPM) and has been a leading UK specialist distributor of components and systems for high voltage, pulsed power and power electronics since 1994. Products include high voltage power supplies, semiconductor modules, switches, capacitors, connectors and resistors as well as programmable power supplies and cooling solutions to support high voltage, pulse power and analytical instruments applications. Many products are available in custom variants or bespoke solutions.

PPM Power products are suitable for a number of markets and applications. Please click on the links below to jump to more information.

Electric Vehicles

PPM Power can provide all the key components for high performance power conversion applications in the Electric Vehicle (EV) sector, such as traction inverters, DC/DC and battery charging. Standard and custom products are available including:

Rimac electric vehicle

Analytical Measuring Devices

Analytical measuring devices require power supplies with high accuracy, stability and low noise performance in compact form factors. Reliable high voltage power supplies are pivotal to mass spectrometry, scanning electron microscopy, electron beam lithography, gel and capillary electrophoresis, plus many other analytical applications.

Grid

PPM Power can provide products for high voltage electric power transmission networks. Electric power systems have evolved with interconnections of renewable energy and grid simulation is important for verification tests. High voltage AC breakers are needed to strengthen the power grid and improve flexibility to cope with changing power demand.

Subsea

Subsea and shipboard power supplies are used to supply power to compressors, pumps and other electrical components used in offshore, onshore and shipboard applications, in both shallow and deep water subsea installations. They have strict requirements for harmonics and are often used in harsh environments. The latest power conversion technology enables an array of offshore instruments to provide continuous acquisition of real-time data in one of the world’s most inaccessible, difficult-to-study environments over thousands of kilometres. Other components used in subsea applications include:

Particle Accelerators

The right magnet power unit delivers high-precision current coupled with excellent long-term stability and high dynamism. The fast and ultra-precise control and current measurement needed for this require specialist expertise and the right choice of components. PPM Power supplies a wide range of power supplies for magnet applications, as well as other products for the particle accelerators market including:
