Welcome to Reliability in Power Electronics Systems (2021)

Description: The course will be the latest research outcomes of the Center of Reliable Power Electronics (CORPE). Since 2013, more than 170 participants from universities and companies have been trained in this 3-day course. By considering the feedbacks from participants and newly obtained research results from CORPE in the last few years, the 2021 version of the course will be 4 days focusing 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:

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

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.
