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.
- 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.
