Abstract: In this webinar, the presenter will share his experience and questions in high-density motor drive development for All-Electric Aircraft systems from an academic point-of-view. The first part of the presentation will briefly cover converter development efforts in both non-cryogenic and cryogenic power system configurations. It will provide an architectural comparison for motor drives in such systems. The second part of the presentation will use examples from the presenter’s development to elaborate on co-design/co-optimization efforts to achieve high power-density and efficiency for the propulsion motor drives. These efforts include converter-level and component-level optimization/advancement, as well as power module packaging. The last part of the presentation will briefly introduce the modeling, testing, and analysis of the “side-effects” for the power electronics in electric aircraft propulsion systems, including partial discharge, EMI/EMC, and reflected wave influences, in such a compact, high-power application environment. Through this webinar, the audiences can expect a comprehensive overview of this emerging application and spark more innovative ideas to advance the state-of-the-art for modern power electronics.
