PowerCare at APEC 2024
Check out our project info sheet and supportive material
from APEC 2024 in our recent update:
The switch to regenerative energy sources require extensive electrification of drive systems. Novel power electronics based on gallium nitride (GaN) enables more efficient and compact drives for industry and mobility - with particularly demanding requirements in terms of dynamics and reliability.
State-of-the-art drive systems and power modules are limited to continuous condition monitoring, which requires costly and data-intensive communication with higher-level systems.
PowerCare uses a new monitoring concept in the form of a miniaturized motor controller with integrated real-time failure prediction (edge AI) to let you know in advance of upcoming maintenance needs, thus laying the foundation for a new evolutionary stage of intelligent power modules. Simultaneously, the switch to vertical GaN MOSFETs allows for unrivaled power densities and ruggedness.
