APEC 2020, March 18, 13:45-14:15h

Exhibitor Seminar: "9 Key Failures in Power Inductives"

Speakers: Antonio Rojas

Location: 211-213

We would like to invite you to join us at APEC conference! This year we will be part at the Magnetic Session with "the Graphene Based Power Magnetics: a New Material for Improved Performance Conference" and at the Exhibitor Seminar talking about "9 Key Failures in Power Inductives", to be held on Wenesday March 18st, 2020 (13:45-14:15h). Location: 211-213.

9 Key Failures Power Inductives Session Abstract:  


A fatal failure in Power Electronics often ends up with the car stopped and having to be towed for service (best case) and expensive replacement of the full electrical system while a catastrophic failure could see the car burst into flames1 with very serious damage to the Car Makers’ reputation and a very serious situation for the car owner (worst case). Most of the issues that affect Lithium batteries in EV (pressure, heating, short circuits and flame risks are common with Power Electronics circuits and thus the same solutions apply). Causes of Failures that cause overheating (Breakdown & Fire):

  • Magnetostriction
  • Curie temperature
  • Core breaks and cracks
  • Short Circuits
  • Magnetic Saturation
  • Fire and ames
  • Fringing Fluxes & Gaps
  • Hot Spots and Short Circuited windings
  • Air cavities
  • Leaked Flux


- An efficient cooling system in a 3.3KW device can save up to 34ºC of temperature

- PCM (Phase Change Materials) absorb a much higher amount of heat thanks to enthalpy.

- Customized thermal solution beat in performance and cost the market standards.
