Power Electronics at SAL: The "Tiny Power Box" Project
High Tech Campus Villach
9524 Villach, Austria
Abstract: Power electronics can be found in almost every electronic device today, starting from very small scale (mW) through mobile phone chargers (W) up to wind power inverters (MW). The first cooperative research project in SAL's power electronics division is the "Tiny Power Box" project. It targets highest efficiency and smallest size for a 3-11kW on-board charger for electric vehicles. This talk will provide a short insight into power electronics at SAL in general, the aims within the Tiny Power Box project and first results using a novel electrothermal co-simulation approach.
