9 Key Failures in Power Inductives – Free webinar
What will you learn?
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):
- 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.
