Reference number
Coordinator RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 4 811 901
Project duration May 2020 - October 2023
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

The overall goal of the project was to improve the quality, reliability and accessibility of electronics. New techniques and methods have been developed to predict failures and remaining useful life in power electronics components. This provides the end users in the project with valuable information that can lead to reduced warranty measures with extended service life, as well as increased understanding/control of individual components and thus the opportunity for system and cost optimization.

Expected results and effects

The main output of the project is a proof-of-concept demonstrator that shows how to improve the reliability of power electronics by combining AI/ML data-driven models and Physics-of-failure methods to monitor health conditions and forecast remaining life. A further result of the project is a set of data that can be used as a starting point for developing and testing new models for diagnostics and prognostics. In general, these results are expected to contribute to improving the reliability of power electronics.

Planned approach and implementation

During the course of the project, the Swedish consortium mainly collaborated in an industrial pilot that dealt with power electronics for heavy vehicles. At the same time, an exchange took place with the international consortium through, for example, WP and Task leadership. The work has gone from specification, method development and analysis to development of tools and tests.
