RESEARCH PROJECT

High performant Wide Band Gap Power Electronics for Reliable, energy efficient drivetrains and optimization through Multi-physics simulation

ECSEL Research and Innovation Actions (RIA)

European-funded project (2018-2021) aiming at reducing the size, cost and energy consumption of semi-conductor based electronics and increasing their performance by using wide-band-gap materials such as Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicon Carbide (SiC):

  • Long term cost reduction for SiC and GaN switches
  • WBG switches with energy efficiency up to 98%
  • WBG switches with up to 500 KHz
  • Reliability and safety as Si technology
  • Power electronics sub-systems with 40% less spatial volume

Within this project Powerdale delivers a GaN-based on-board charging system and contributes to the development of an off-board DC-charging station based on SiC technology.
