Unbreakable HEART: a reconfigurable and self-healing isolated dc/dc converter (U-HEART)

Project description

Creating DC-to-DC converters with fault-tolerant operation

DC-to-DC converters are used to increase or decrease the voltage level, based on an electronic circuit switching technology. Their purpose is to produce voltage that is regulated and consistent from sources that are fluctuating or not constant. These converters reduce switching noise and are employed as key components in data centres, aerospace and electrical distribution to guarantee control and system efficiency. Currently, fault-tolerant operations are typically achieved via costly redundancy. The EU-funded U-HEART project aims to obtain fault-tolerant operation of isolated DC-to-DC converters without redundancy based on a patented multi-winding transformer, which can prevent failure via the reconfiguration of the system.
