Welcome to Reliability in Power Electronics Systems


The course will be the latest research outcomes of the Center of Reliable Power Electronics (CORPE). The 2018 version of the course will focus on failure mechanisms and degradation models of active power devices and capacitors, system-level reliability assessment and design tools, and reliability testing methods. The course will have the following five main parts:

Introduction to modern reliability and robustness approach
Reliability testing methods and testing data analysis (e.g., Weibull)
Long-term wear out and single-event abnormal operation of active power modules and capacitors
Power electronics system-level reliability assessment and design tools
Condition monitoring and thermal control of critical power electronic components
Basic understanding of power electronics, power semiconductor devices, capacitors, and basic statistics.

Form of evaluation: Case study exercise and report submission

Organizer: Associate Professor Huai Wang – Aalborg University, Professor Francesco Iannuzzo – Aalborg University

Lecturers: Professor Frede Blaabjerg Associate Professor Huai Wang Professor Francesco Iannuzzo, Reliability Advisor Peter de Place Rimmen


Time: September 11-13, 2019


Number of seats: 30

Deadline: August 21 2019

Important information concerning PhD courses
We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registration.
