A modular and scalable power electronics device for the control of electric drives

  • This paper presents an approach for the implementation of a modular and scalable power electronics device for controlling electric drives in the field of electric vehicles using wide bandgap semiconductor devices. The main idea is to achieve the required output currents or voltages by connecting adequately designed hardware modules in parallel or in series. This particular design is based on the fact that the single modules generate a continuous and specified output voltage from a given dc voltage, e.g. an intermediate circuit or battery voltage. The main benefit is, that different current or voltage requirements can be satisfied based on a single module thus decreasing development and production costs. The current paper focuses on the connection in parallel of such modules. A control architecture is illustrated and a first proof of concept is given.
