Welcome to Power module design, packaging and testing (2021)

Description: Power modules are the work-horses in car, wind, solar and drives applications. Power modules may be destroyed instantaneously however in applications lifetimes are expected to be 20 years. Strong and the same time fragile you need to understand the power modules to design them properly. This course bring you under the skin of power modules and introduces the multidisciplinary knowledge needed to understand packaging assembly processes, materials and layouts as well as failure mechanisms. From the application point of view lifetime monitoring and test methods are introduced 

The course is conducted by physicists and engineers with experience from the university packaging laboratory building fex. 10kV SiC power modules, compact fast switching hybrid GaN power modules and with experience of analyzing and testing industry standard power modules and components for higher powers. The course will contain background information on packaging process simulation, worked examples and case studies of FEM based digital power module design and experimental validation as well as a day spent with experimental hands-on exercises related to packaging and physical analysis in the laboratories.

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 3.000 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 four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
