Advanced Power Electronic Technology and Tools

Project: ResearchResearch Project

Description

The project aims to prepare for a paradigm shift in power electronics that will boost the spread of smart electrical energy systems and secure competitiveness and growth of Danish power electronics industry in the next decade. New competences and work methods shall further significantly improve reliability-oriented design and testing, prototyping/development time of power electronics products for energy systems. It has the three specific goals below:

• A factor of 3 volume and weight improvement of kW converters used in variable speed drives and power supplies
• Reduce the power electronics products reliability testing time by 20%, and the maintenance cost and return rates by 50%
• Develop a Design for Reliability and Robustness Tool (DfR2 Tool) platform for industry product design or field operation lifetime extension; contribute to the reduction of LCoE of renewables and LCC of energy utilizations
