NEXT GENERATION MODULAR SIC-BASED ADVANCED POWER ELECTRONICS CONVERTERS FOR ENHANCED RENEWABLES INTEGRATION INTO THE GRID

Project description

Greener SiC-based converters

The clean energy transition in Europe calls for further advancements in the power electronic converters industry to improve the integration of renewable energy sources, with increased reliability and lifetime and reduced cost. In this context, the EU-funded SiC4GRID project aims to bring about those advancements while also improving the European market’s competitiveness in silicon carbide (SiC) converters globally. The project will introduce innovations in the converter modules design and development, including gate drivers, in the IoT platform and in the software with digital twin modelling and self-healing energy management. The focus will be on converter applications including offshore wind, onshore wind and PV farms with different converter topologies which will be tested and validated either physically or digitally.
