To design a highly compact, bi-directional 7-11 kW converter as an onboard charger and to use this converter as a “vehicle” for developing a holistic design-by-simulation workflow.
The objective is to pave the way for the development and construction of power electronic hardware with first-class performance figures. These key parameters include efficiency, power density, volume, costs and lifecycle. The newest process technologies available (such as wide-band gap semiconductors, see Program 2), components and integration technologies are also included, as are architecture concepts and control strategies. The model-based design concepts with power hardware in the loop (PHIL) from Program 1 are applied. The power classes range from micro power supply (<20 W), through converters in the kW range, to >100 kW power converters.
WHY BECOME A PARTNER IN SAL RESEARCH PROJECTS?
Silicon Austria Labs is one of the most exciting research initiatives in Europe. Researching together with SAL means close cooperation along the added-value chain to work on complex problems and research questions relevant to the future. The joint research results will be able to be implemented for the companies involved (including SMEs).
