|Reliability Considerations of Inverter/DC Link Capacitor using PP Film and 105C Engine Coolant|
|Keywords: inverter, capacitor, engine coolant|
|SBE has developed an innovative new annular capacitor technology which when combined with integration of inverter semiconductors should provide the path to a significantly increased power density inverter capable of operating using the available HEV/PHEV 105° C engine coolant for both semiconductors and capacitors at similar or less expensive costs than today’s technology The research has crossed several important feasibility milestones. Early technology is being field tested by notable industry participants. The US DoE has provided some R & D funding. Initial Reliability modeling and Data of such a device combination will be presented as well layout and packaging options and the effects on reliability and performance. Some examples of packages and integrated modules will also be discussed.|
