Title of the Talk: Advances in Power Electronics and Power Semiconductors for E-mobility Applications

Abstract: E-mobility has emerged as an interesting application for power electronics and power semiconductors. Not only is this market demonstrating an exponential growth, but is also filled with interesting challenges. This is where Power semiconductors and power electronics can pitch in to facilitate adoption of electric cars. This talk gives an overview of the most interesting power electronic applications in electric Vehicles, with a main focus on the traction inverter application, which is, by far, the most important from a power semiconductor point of view. The latest trends in the application and power semiconductor technologies is discussed. Special focus will be given to Silicon Carbide Mosfet technology which offers significant benefits in terms of power density, switching behaviour, conduction behaviour etc. Results of power loss measurements are shown and discussed.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Ajay Poonjal Pai obtained his B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from NITK Surathkal, India and M.Sc. in Electrical Power Engineering from RWTH Aachen University, Germany. He then pursued his PhD focusing on Silicon Carbide at the Friedrich Alexander University, Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. Since 2015, he is working at Infineon Technologies AG, Neubiberg, Germany as a Principal Application Engineer responsible for next-generation Silicon Carbide technologies and Power Modules for electric vehicles. His research interests include e-mobility, Silicon Carbide semiconductors and power electronics. He enjoys following new technologies and understanding trends in the power electronics and automotive markets. He has contributed to several conferences and journals, and has delivered numerous lectures and tutorials around the world.
