  • Wide Bandgap Devices Continue to Evolve for Aerospace Applications

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ashok Bindra;
      Pages: 4 - 6
      Abstract: From electric aircrafts to satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), the need for fuel saving and greenhouse reduction continues relentlessly. As a result, electrification seems to be catching rapidly in aerospace and aviation applications. This demands new generation of power converters, motor drives, and solid-state circuit breakers with unprecedented power density, efficiency, and reliability. Wide bandgap (WBG) power devices, such as silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFETs and gallium nitride (GaN) high-electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) and gate injection transistors (GITs), are regarded as critical candidates for such applications. While WBG devices have been serving the needs of commercial and industrial systems for more than a decade, there are still many challenges for WBG devices and their circuits for aviation applications, which include radiation hardness, extreme operation temperature, high altitude, high-voltage, high dv/dt, and high di/dt operation induced issues.

      Authors: Renee Yawger;
      Pages: 12 - 14
      Abstract: Globally, governments are mandating a switch from internal combustion engine (ICE) technology to electric-drive vehicles in 100s of millions of vehicles to combat climate change. For example, on 29 June 2022, the European Union (EU) agreed to a framework to eliminate carbon emissions from new cars and vans by 2035, effectively removing the ICE option for large-scale auto manufacturers [1]. Automakers are already moving quickly to innovate, reduce electric drive costs and leverage technology to respond to this new environment.

      Authors: Jin Wang;
      Pages: 16 - 25
      Abstract: Aerospace applications are not new but potentially the final frontiers for power electronics research and developments. On the aviation side, because of the need for fuel saving and greenhouse gas reduction, more electric aircraft (MEA), unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, and future hybrid and turbo electric propulsion call for a new generation of power converters, motor drives, and solid-state circuit breakers with unprecedented power density, efficiency, and reliability [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11]. On the space side, lunar, Mars, and deep space expeditions, will need light-weight and highly efficient power electronics systems to work reliably at places that no man has gone before, where space radiation and extreme operation conditions present more challenges to power devices and circuits [12], [13], [14].

  • Wide Bandgap Semiconductor-Based Power Electronics for Aviation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Fei Fred Wang;Ruirui Chen;Kaushik Rajashekara;
      Pages: 26 - 36
      Abstract: There is a growing trend in aircraft electrification, which can reduce green-house gas emissions, reduce audible noise, reduce maintenance needs, lower cost, and improve safety. Moving from mechanical, pneumatic, and hydraulic power to electric power requires architecture changes, more electric power, and improvements in electric power generation, distribution, and conversion. There are two main categories of aircraft electrification in aviation industry: the more-electric aircraft (MEA), which replaces secondary aircraft systems traditionally supplied by pneumatic, hydraulic, or mechanical power with electrical systems; and the electrified aircraft propulsion (EAP), which includes turbo-electric, hybrid-electric, and all-electric architectures.

  • Totem-Pole PFC Reliability and Performance Improvement With Advanced
           Controls

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Zhong Ye;Danyang Zhu;Hailong Yang;
      Pages: 37 - 44
      Abstract: Totem-pole power factor correction (PFC) is a simple and highly efficient topology. It is being widely used in high-density and high-efficiency power supply design. However, engineers still face many design challenges, including PFC current reversing prevention at input voltage drop, lightning surge protection, current harmonic reduction, and ac crossover current spike elimination. These challenges are not closely related to each other and there is no single control that can solve all the design issues. This article reviews the main design challenges and provides comprehensive solutions to these issues. Most of the solutions are novel or are used for the first time in PFC control. These solutions are integrated into the industry’s first continuous conduction mode (CCM) totem-pole PFC analog controller IVCC1102 [1]. A 2.5 kW SiC-based totem-pole PFC prototype [1] is built to demonstrate the robustness and performance improvement with the proposed solutions.

  • Full-Bridge Fault- Tolerant Isolated DC–DC Converters: Overview of
           Technologies and Application Challenges

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Abualkasim Bakeer;Andrii Chub;Dmitri Vinnikov;
      Pages: 45 - 55
      Abstract: Nowadays, energy generation is on the path from centralized to distributed generation paradigm to improve the efficiency and resilience of power systems. One of the major developments in the energy sector was the introduction of dc microgrids that facilitate direct integration of energy sources, storage, and dc loads. Also, most consumer and industrial devices are naturally dc devices or contain a dc link, which makes them compatible with dc microgrids. Hence, dc distribution is an efficient tool for combining dc energy sources and battery energy storage with typical loads that are predominantly compatible with dc microgrids. In the foreseeable future, widespread adoption of dc microgrids will rely on the ubiquitous use of dc–dc converters. Apart from cost concerns, the long-term reliability of power electronic systems is under scrutiny by the power industry, which prefers simple but highly reliable/available solutions.

  • Ranking Qi Wireless Power Transmitters by Efficiency

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: John Perzow;
      Pages: 56 - 64
      Abstract: The Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) Energy Star Task Force (ESTF), comprised of engineers from major cellphone and consumer electronics manufacturers, test houses, and others, developed a proposed efficiency-test protocol for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), intended to rank Qi wireless power transmitters on the basis of power-transfer efficiency. Key to this test protocol is the assumption that a single, optimally designed test receiver may be used to accurately assess transmitter efficiency and enable ranking. The possibility exists that phones using different power receiver designs (e.g., different “friendly metal” profiles, different electrical designs) will interact with transmitters and report different rankings for a given transmitter, thus invalidating the proposed test protocol. Experiments to prove or disprove the assumption that a single optimized receiver can be used as a proxy to fairly compare and rank the real-world power-transfer efficiency performance of Qi wireless power transmitters were conducted. As a result of these experiments, the WPC has concluded that because of receiver–transmitter interaction, it is not possible to rank transmitters by efficiency for more than one receiver design but decreasing the transmitter’s standby power could save as much energy over a 24-h period as improving full-power efficiency by 10%.

      Authors: Stephanie Watts Butler;
      Pages: 65 - 94
      Abstract: An insurmountable wall of acronyms glued together with complex organizational dynamics can present a complicated scenario for those wanting to become more involved with the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS). This wall can feel even more unsurmountable to those new to engaging with the IEEE, especially students, recent graduates, or diverse members. Industry members may struggle to find relevant opportunities, and non-native English speakers may find understanding the jargon too large of an obstacle. PELS’s five-year strategic plan lists and cites engagement of its membership several times, especially with respect to diversity and inclusion and industrial membership [1]. Therefore, the leadership of PELS, with the assistance of the PELS Women in Engineering (WIE) Committee, have been investigating best practices for increasing engagement levels and satisfaction.

  • Silicon Alternatives to the Ubiquitous MLCC [Expert View]

      Authors: Mukund Krishna;
      Pages: 72 - 75
      Abstract: A longside resistors and inductors, capacitors are one of the fundamental electronic components. In fact, an argument could be made that they are more versatile than their other passive counterparts, essential to providing everything from energy storage and filtering to smoothing and RF tuning. About one trillion capacitors are produced every year, with around 80% of that number being made up of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) [1]. Deployed across the entire power delivery network, the ubiquity of these miniature devices is reflected in the fact that there are anywhere between 400 to over 1000 of them in the latest smartphones [2] and as many as 5000 in a modern vehicle [3]. And the demand for MLCCs continues to grow rapidly. According to the latest report from research firm Research and Markets, for example, the global MLCC market is expected to see a compound annual growth rate of 13.8%, increasing from USD 14.0 billion in 2022 to USD 26.6 billion by 2027.

      Pages: 96 - 94
      Abstract: The dilemma of which came first, the chicken or the egg, has been debated for millennia. A more recent debate among power electronics engineers is which comes first—innovations in devices or innovations in circuits' This was, as I recall, even the topic of a rap at session at an IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC) a few years back. Semiconductor device engineers argue that without advances in new and improved devices advances in circuits and topologies would not be possible. Circuit engineers argue that the basic nature of the switching devices has never changed and that advances in power electronics are all due to innovations in circuits and topologies.
