ECPE Workshop 'New Technologies for Medium-Frequency Solid-State Transformers'
ECPE in cooperation with Prof. Drazen Dujic (EPFL Lausanne) and Prof. Johann W. Kolar (ETH Zürich) has in February 2019 organized an ECPE Workshop ‘New Technologies for Medium-Frequency Solid-State Transformers’. Lively discussions at the booked-out workshop have confirmed that solid-state transformers are nowadays a highly attractive research topic resulting in the first practical implementations. The workshop has focused on the key technologies and methodologies needed to further advance solid state transformers concepts including power semiconductors, materials, magnetics, measurements and system integration. Examples, opportunities and challenges for application in wind, electrical grids and railway have been discussed. The workshop was attended by 120 professionals from industry and academia.
