Condition Monitoring Sensor for Extended Power Module Lifetime and Catastrophic Failure Prevention

Project Details


This project will demonstrate the benefits of using a non-invasive condition-monitoring sensor in power modules. The project aims to show that power modules using the sensor can experience increased lifetime and avoid explosive failure at the end of the power module lifecycle. The project will build two groups of power modules to study. One group will include the condition-monitoring sensor, while the other group will be a control group of power modules without the sensor. Both sets of power modules will otherwise be identical and will be subject to the same test constraints via an accelerated lifetime test in a realistic high voltage converter. The results from each group will be compared.
