Power electronics is a field of electrical engineering focused around designing & controlling the flow of electrical power. Power electronics plays a crucial role in modern power systems. Its applications range from consumer electronics & power tools to electric vehicles & renewable energy systems.
Today, over 70% of electricity is processed by some form of power electronics.
The demand for newer, smaller, more efficient, lower cost power modules is rapidly growing.
Power module design today is often manually intensive and costly with a heavy reliance on physical prototypes.
A power module is a high-power switching circuit used in power electronics applications for electric vehicles, renewable energy, photovoltaics, wind power, & much more. This paper discusses different technologies & the associated design challenges to achieve complex requirements like high voltage resistivity up to 1700 V, high current ratings up to 1600 A, temperature stability, and low E- and H-field emissions.
Siemens provides a new digital thread design approach in an integrated workflow to accelerate time-to-market while reducing development costs. Watch these videos to understand how we enable first-pass success for power module design.
