Join NPL's power cycling webinar

The UK's National Measurement Institute, NPL, is hosting a webinar on the use of power cycling testing for power electronic applications.

NPL has recently run a project investigating the electrical and thermal degradation of power modules, evaluating their performance from a materials aspect. Researchers at the institute developed power cycling capability to heat power module systems at a device level, leading to local heating. Using active cooling, the researchers were able to rapidly cycle the device temperature and accelerate lifetime testing to evaluate the performance of the electrical interconnects and the thermal interfaces in the device stack.

With the market for electric and hybrid vehicles growing rapidly, there is an increasing need for system reliability testing. As the technology for these vehicles develops, the operating voltage and current draw of these systems will increase to meet end user requirements. As higher voltage and current can lead to a range of failure mechanisms, it is important that the reliability of these systems is well understood and can be appropriately tested and investigated. In the near future this technology will move onto electric aircraft, where reliability plays a key consideration in the design.

NPL invites delegates to join the webinar to learn more.
