Abstract:

SatCon will investigate materials and and innovative designs to increase the power density and high temperature reliability of power electronics in Military Hybrid Electric Vehicles. We will focus on switch modules for DC/DC conversion that can servenumerous applications as well as motor drives. Advanced engineered materials will be investigated for application in integrally cooled power modules. An approach to double side cooling will be investigated as well. The improvements developed in Phase Iwill be the basis for a compact, modular DC/DC converter design for Military Hybrid Vehicles in Phase II. Commercial applicatons will benefit by adopting these advances by in such applications such as automotive electric vehicles and soid stateuninterruptible power systems (UPS). Converters capable of running at higher power density will run cooler and more reliably when implemented into those applications where the same volume is allocated for converter design based on present technology.
