SwoP - Impact of switched voltage waveforms on power components and grids

Electrification of society relies heavily on the use of power electronics for control and conversion of electric power. Power electronics are thereby central to the development of electric transport, renewable energy production, and efficient power transmission.

With the technological development comes more powerful and efficient power electronics, but also increased stresses and accelerated degradation of the electric power components. This poses challenges for the components' reliability and security of supply.

Project goals:

  • Develop methods to measure and characterize the increased stresses power components are exposed to.
  • Investigate the acceleration of degradation due to fast power electronics.
  • Investigate initiation of new fault modes and scenarios that will emerge due to use of fast power electronics.
