The application-level reliability of a power converter is among the least understood topics today. There are no established guidelines that can be used to design a power converter in order to guarantee a certain mean-time-between-failures (MTBF) or mean-time-to-failures (MTTF). This talk will discuss the current approach followed in industry for assessing the field-reliability of power converters and will outline a new approach that emphasises on physics-based component failure mechanisms.
A summit to address the key challenges associated with Decarbonising Transport through Electrification. Bringing interdisciplinary and multi sector groups together, this Cardiff University and partner event will identify opportunities for working collaboratively, to tackle these challenges. Key industry stakeholders, funders and policy makers will deliver presentations on key themes.
This seminar presents trends together with the latest advances in grid integration of EVs and its impact on the power grid and infrastructure. It focuses particularly on the stationary and dynamic wireless EV charging technology and presents its latest advances, highlighting the challenges and future directions.
