Special Issue on Safety and Reliability of Power Electronics Components and Systems, 2023

Efficiency and power density have been widely concerned with the development of power electronics, while the safety and reliability issues have been attracting more and more attention in a few years due to the increasingly stringent safety requirements, e.g., in electric vehicle and aerospace industries. To understand the failure mechanisms and the safe operation area of components/systems in practical applications, comprehensive testing methods considering the operating conditions are becoming essential. Besides accelerated aging tests, multi-physics modeling, physics-of-failure analyses, degradation modeling, electro-thermal simulation, and lifetime assessment contribute to a better understanding of the failure roots in components and systems and the design of a safer system.  Moreover, designing condition monitoring and health status estimation tools, fault diagnosis, fault tolerance, and active thermal management techniques help to realize the predictive maintenance of power electronic components and systems. Finally, the emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques are getting a lot of attention in aging data processing, remaining useful life estimation, etc.

This special issue aims to collect emerging research achievements within the scope of safety and reliability of power electronics components and systems (e.g., passive and magnetic components, SiC, GaN, and Si devices, sensors, batteries, connectors) and circuits. Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions or survey papers for peer review for publication in CPSS Transactions on Power Electronics and Applications. Topics of interest in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  Accelerated aging techniques and testing circuits

•  Characteristic analysis and modeling of active/passive components and batteries
