Turbo Power Systems (TPS) are a provider of power conversion solutions, specialising in the design and manufacture of a wide range of innovative high speed electrical machines and power electronic products for varied applications. Our pedigree is focussed in the three core markets of Energy, Industrial and Transportation where we have supplied products ranging from Auxiliary Power Supply for Rail to Oil free, high speed compressor motors for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) application.
More recently TPS have developed and supplied pioneering high power electronic converters for smart grid electricity network distribution and Electric Vehicle charging. Both of these opportunities represent strategic high growth markets of the future and critical areas for realising the decarbonised economy of the future.
Based in Gateshead UK with over 165 employees at its Design and Manufacturing centre, TPS has served both domestic and global export markets for over 40 years. We continue to support large infrastructure projects and manufacturing organisations from our base in the UK and satellite offices in Atlanta, Rio de Janeiro and Kuala Lumpur.
To maximise value for our clients, we are an early adopter of cutting-edge and latest technology. An example of this is in the area of Wide Bang Gap semiconductor materials, where we adopted small Silicon Carbide power devices as early as 2015 to realise compact and efficient power supplies for Rail. This provided TPS with the knowledge and confidence to adopt, more recently, higher power Silicon Carbide MOSFET modules for products with technically challenging specification. These products are entering active service in systems including the London Underground and UK Electricity Distribution Networks, demonstrating their applicability far beyond just automotive application.
Clearly then, access to a sovereign supply source for Silicon Carbide devices is critical to our business and future growth, hence TPS participation in ESCAPE to aid delivery and demonstration of a UK capability for Wide Band gap power devices.
