Corrosion research agenda for: "Sustainable Power Electronics by Improved Robustness against Climate Stress" by GfKORR - Gesellschaft für Korrosionsschutz e. V., ECPE European Center for Power Electronics e. V.
Society is under the influence of the global megatrends of climate change and scarcity of resources, shifting of economic powers, urbanisation, demographic change and digitalisation. In order to successfully counter these changes and even shape them positively, power electronics has taken a key role in all fields of society. In order to meet the increased demands on the robustness and reliability of power electronic components and systems, comprehensive knowledge of their corrosion behaviour is necessary. However, corrosion mechanisms are highly complex. They depend on the materials, the environment and the respective protective measures. Accordingly, efforts must urgently be taken up in the most diverse research fields in order to create a comprehensive and secured data situation.
