Project description: Further development of load cycling test benches to evaluate the reliability of novel WBG power semiconductors.

Together with the Professorship of Power Electronics, TU-Chemnitz, research is being conducted on software- and hardware-based solutions for the optimization of load cycling test benches. These test benches enable the expected lifetime in the application to be determined in an accelerated test. The project focuses on wide bandgap (WBG) power semiconductors, in particular SiC MOSFETs. With the improved equipment, Chemnitz Power Labs is able to respond even better to customer-specific requirements from the applications of electromobility, renewable energies and automation technology.
