      Abstract: Despite global efforts, CO2 emissions, along with other harmful gases, continue to rise and transportation is a big contributor to this global warming concern. As a result, to reduce these harmful emissions, governments and policymakers around the world are pushing the adoption of electrified vehicles (EVs) via a variety of incentives. Subsequently, for passenger vehicles only, EVs are forecasted to reach 80 million cars in the U.S. and around 500 million globally by 2040.

      Abstract: The hybrid format of IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC) 2022, held 20–24 March in Houston, Tx, USA, was a refreshing change from the virtual conferences of the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to the tremendous efforts of hundreds of organizers and volunteers, APEC 2022 signals the return to our in-person events. It was a joyful reunion of IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) members, volunteers and exhibitors. The breakfast event of “WiE, YP, and You: How to become involved with PELS and PSMA too” was a huge success, the fruit of the tireless work of the PELS Women in Engineering (WiE) and Young Professionals (YP) Committees. You can find detailed materials including FAQs of many programs of the PELS, prepared by dozens of PELS volunteers on the WiE events website: https://www.ieee-pels.org/membership/wie/wie-events. The “YP Reception at APEC 2022” cosponsored by PELS and Industry Applications Society (IAS) attracted over 100 young professionals and students to a social gathering at The Grotto, Houston. Our hybrid Spring Administrative Committee (AdCom) Meeting and several PELS standing committee meetings held during APEC 2022 presented a venue for our volunteers and friends to catch up.

      Abstract: Due to the environmental concerns about CO2-caused global warming, policymakers are pushing electrified vehicles (EVs) to reduce these emissions. For passenger vehicles only, the electrified fleet is forecasted to reach 80 million in the U.S. and 500 million globally by 2040. Key enablers for such rapid EV adoption include the improvement of battery energy density, lifespan and safety, and drastic cost reduction of batteries and power electronics. The technology of power electronics nowadays can be found in many aspects of EVs. It alters and transforms the energy from the power source to different forms to feed the loads. For example, the on-board charger (OBC) accepts ac input and converts it to high voltage (HV) dc to charge the propulsion battery. An auxiliary power module (APM) steps down the HV battery voltage to low voltage (LV) to charge the LV battery [1]. The HV dc bus voltage is converted to an ac form to drive the propulsion motor, forming the motor drive inverter. Putting the power electronics system and the batteries together, the typical structure of an EV is shown in Figure 1. In addition, power electronics can be found in other onboard auxiliary circuits, such as LED lighting and battery management system (BMS).

      Abstract: The system-level value of wide bandgap power semiconductors of higher efficiency, smaller size and weight, and more sustainable energy usage in our power supplies and motor drives is being demonstrated now. Gallium nitride (GaN) power FETs are replacing silicon (Si) power MOSFETs in applications from 48 V to 800 V. Silicon carbide (SiC) is replacing legacy IGBTs in applications >800 V. The previous barriers to implementing what was theoretically possible with these technologies included manufacturability, reliability, system complexity, and cost (Table 1). But over just the last few years with numerous advancements, it’s clear that those challenges have been addressed as 10’s of millions of units of GaNFast power ICs have been shipped in mass production in applications from fast mobile chargers to gaming systems to notebook computer adapters, and more.

  • Transformative Role of Power Electronics: In solving climate emergency

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Long term shifts in weather patterns and temperature are referred to as climate change. Hotter temperatures, more severe storms, increased droughts, food and water insecurity, and economic disruption, etc. are all due to climate change. According to NASA, “Human activities (primarily the burning of fossil fuels) have fundamentally increased the concentration of greenhouse gases in Earth’s atmosphere, warming the planet” [1]. One of the most difficult challenges faced by humanity is to solve the climate emergency [2]. In addition to the climate emergency, the drive to transition from fossil fuel to renewable energy has taken on a new urgency as a result of Russia’s assault on Ukraine [3]. The recent Glasgow summit left a huge hole in addressing the challenges of climate change [4]. In order to avoid more than 1.5°C of eventual warming, the 2030 goal of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions must be further reduced by approximately 17–20 bn tones [4]. Daring and transformative economic transformations are required to save humanity. There are fundamental differences between green and clean energy sources. Free fuel and renewable green energy sources such as solar and wind have negligible negative impact on the environment and require minimum use of water in electric power generation. On the other hand, clean energy source such as nuclear energy does not produce GHG emission during electric power generation, but mining, extraction, and long-term radioactive waste storage are threats to the environment, and Uranium is a nonrenewable resource. In addition, nuclear energy requires massive amount of water in electric power generation. Thus, renewable, and -ree fuel-based solar and wind power that have minimal negative impact on the environment are considered as green sustainable power. From safety (death rate from accidents and pollution) [5], minimum GHG emissions [5], negligible use of water in electric power generation [6], photovoltaics (PV) and wind power provide lowest cost [5] of electric power generation. In 2020, the International Energy Agency (IEA) announced that solar power is now the cheapest form of energy [7]. The cost of electric power generation by photovoltaics has reached as low as $0.0104/kWh [8]. The use of these green sustainable energy sources in place of fossil fuels is the only economical solution to address climate emergency. The objective of this article is to show that power electronics has the potential to achieve the goal of electrifying almost everything by green sustainable energy sources and providing a solution to our shared climate emergency.

      Abstract: Invention of the transistor in 1947 made a radical change to the path of the development of electronic products and systems. In the mid-1950s, integrated circuits (ICs) started evolving rapidly, creating miniaturized analog, digital and mixed signal circuits. By the 1960s to 1970s, microprocessors, memories and power semiconductors entered the electronic marketplace. During the 1980s and 1990s, power supplies required to power the high-performance digital circuits kept dropping towards 2 V and below. By the year 2000, complex digital and mixed- signal circuits required for portable gadgets were powered by very low dc rails as low as 1 V and sub-1 V. Very large-scale ICs and ultra-large scale ICs proliferated after 2000, integrating millions to billions of sub-micron feature transistors. The ultimate result of this massive progress came with the unique problem of vulnerability of modern electronics to transient surges. A detailed background to this is presented in Chapter 1 of reference [1].

      Abstract: Smart low-voltage distribution system (LVDS) is an essential component in realizing smart electricity grids. In countries like India and other energy-deprived regions of the world, researchers are looking for a holistic approach to integrate millions of small Renewable-powered homes in the LVDS and make the system smart. Restructuring the existing distribution system to form clusters of microgrids is an important step in achieving a smart LVDS. The realization of microgrids in LVDS can take different shapes in different countries depending on the structure of the distribution grid. This article envisions a possible approach to implement microgrids in a smart LVDS with radial distribution.

      Abstract: For the last two years, the IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC) was organized in a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the leading international conference was delivered in a hybrid format in Houston, Texas, 20–24 March at the George R. Brown Convention Center. Because some overseas and domestic participants in our community, including domestic, were unable to physically attend due to travel restrictions and other COVID-related concerns, the organizers made a decision to provide select recorded conference content (Plenary, Technical, and Industry Sessions) in an on-demand format for a period of time (March 28–April 29) after the conference ended in Houston on 24 March.

      Authors: Dinesh Ramanathan;
      Pages: 82 - 85
      Abstract: GaN power semiconductor devices have been the recent focus of intense development efforts due to the promising material properties of GaN for next-generation power electronics applications. For power switching and rectifying applications, the ruggedness in breakdown is a critical requirement as addition of snubber circuits reduce the performance and efficiency of the system. Lateral GaN high-electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) have been commercialized up to 900 V class recently, but they lack avalanche capabilities. Vertical GaN transistors demonstrate several advantages over lateral GaN HEMT: 1) higher breakdown voltage (BV) and current for a given chip area, 2) higher reliability, 3) easier thermal management, 4) avalanche capabilities, and 5) short-circuit robustness.
