Power Electronic Integration

 Power Converters will be essential part of all Power Systems in Transportation Electrifications. The PEMC Group has expertise and conducts research into high power density and  optimised thermal management, power quality specifications, and fault tolerance and fault tolerant system control.

PEMC research in this area also incorporates:  

Device technology developments crucial for future success of MEA

New Construction & Thermal Technologies

  • Bonding and attachment technologies 
  • Cooling technologies and heat spreaders

Physics of Failure & Reliability Evaluation 

  • Identification of failure modes and failure models
  • Environmental cycling (real aerospace conditions)
  • Accelerated testing methods

Integration 

  • Reduced weight, volume, cost
  • Reduced inductance and EMI
  • Enhanced thermal and electrical performance 
  • Higher temperature materials (SiC, GaAs)
