报告题目:Wide Bandgap Power Electronics: A Growing Reliance on Design Automation

报告摘要:Wide bandgap (WBG) power electronics have created a buzz in our field. Unheard of power densities are being realized as a result of higher switching frequencies and a capability to withstand elevated temperatures. These advances remain too costly for many applications. Reliability of these highly dense designs should be ascertained. Further, the generation of electromagnetic interference in high speed switching contexts must be dealt with. Several leading researchers have described the need for multi-objective optimization to help address the new tradeoff space for WBG design. These characteristics of WBG design point to a growing reliance on design automation analogous to that found in VLSI design. This includes with high fidelity semiconductor device models for circuit analysis – ultimately requiring electrothermal analysis for reliability assessment and proper electrothermal co-design. The design automation requirements continue with proper layout software to enable simulation of module and board parasitics that can play a significant role in signal integrity at higher frequencies. These aspects of power electronic system design will be described and illustrated with examples.
