Design and Simulation of an Inverter Power Module for Electric Vehicles


Power electronics in an electric vehicle manage the transfer of electrical energy from the battery to various vehicle components such as low-voltage subsystems. The high voltage and current ratings at which the power electronics need to operate, together with fast switching speeds, pose significant design challenges including thermal management, EMC compliance, circuit protection, and reliability.

This 30-minute Webinar provides solutions to these challenges and shows how they can be used in the design of a three-phase power inverter module. In particular, it looks into thermal management, EMC compliance, and parasitic extraction aspects.

The Webinar also examines how technologies such as 1D circuit solvers, 1D system solvers, stress/fatigue/CFD/electromagnetic 3D solvers, co-simulation between 1D and 3D solvers, and a dedicated 1D electric powertrain library can be seamlessly connected to provide a single source of truth shared across the technologies.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
