WP2: Design optimisation of SiC-based modules and Digital Twin modelling

D2.1 Design optimisation of the SiC converter:

This deliverable will aim at optimising the SiC-based modules for longer lifetime and reliability towards integration in full converter applications.

D2.2 High-fidelity modelling of the SiC power modules:

In this deliverable, the developed modular elements on ageing, EMI model will be combined to represent behavioral model of SiC power modules. The EMI model will be based on switching digital twin aiming at < 5 % error and ageing model will be based on both dynamic and static digital twin models.
