ECTS: 3

Description

The course will be the latest research outcomes of the Center of Reliable Power Electronics (CORPE). The 2019 version of the course will focus on failure mechanisms and degradation models of active power devices and capacitors, system-level reliability assessment and design tools, and reliability testing methods. The course will have the following five main parts:

1) Introduction to modern reliability and robustness approach
2) Reliability testing methods and testing data analysis (e.g., Weibull)
3) Long-term wear out and single-event abnormal operation of active power modules and capacitors
4) Power electronics system-level reliability assessment and design tools
5) Condition monitoring and thermal control of critical power electronic components

Prerequisites

Basic understanding of power electronics, power semiconductor devices, capacitors, and basic statistics.

Form of evaluation

Case study exercise and report submission
