ECPE Workshop: Availability of Power Electronics by Fault-Tolerant Designs for Automotive and Aircraft

The automotive and aerospace industries demand power electronics systems with high-availability in order to guarantee full operational function over a long in-service time. Attaining high-availability becomes a challenge in particular for power-dense converters due to inevitable multi-physical interactions that impact adversely on the operational time. Fault tolerant design is a discipline that increases availability of a system. Fault tolerant power electronics converters detect and isolate faults and switch to safe operation.
Switching to safe operations are in particular important to autonomous electric cars and electric aircrafts/drones. Autonomy in cars is expressed in six levels starting from no automation to full autonomy. Where at lower autonomy levels redundancy may be considered at higher autonomy fault-tolerant design seem to be the solution.
The Workshop aims to discuss the state-of-the-art of fault-tolerant design including discussions on safety and reliability by describing requirements for autonomous cars and electric aircrafts followed by describing reliability issues of components and systems.
This workshop will also include results from the ongoing EU Project AutoDrive which aims for advancing fail-aware, fail-safe, and fail-operational electronic components, systems, and architectures for fully automated driving and automated flying to make future mobility safer, affordable and end-user acceptable. Results of the project will be discussed.
Two Panel sessions on Challenges of Autonomous Cars and Electric Aircraft will stimulate know-how exchange between different disciplines involved.

Further information to be published soon.
