Power electronics are being adopted at a rapid pace across various market segments, with more demand for miniaturised and integrated complex solutions, but with these market pressures, how can such power devices remain reliable and provide adequate performance. Despite the vast knowledge applied during the design phase, the market is showing its limitation in terms of testing standards and know-how, in particular when Wide Band Gap devices are the subject.
During this webinar, Dr. Yi Zhang from Aalborg University will show how they’ve used Siemens’ Simcenter technology to gather valuable thermal insights in favour of their extensive research in the power electronics field while supporting industry clients in the adoption of new technologies. Antonio Caruso from Siemens will provide an overview of how the latest Simcenter technology help bridge the gap between the design phase and production.
EMEA Portfolio Manager
Dr. Yi Zhang obtained his B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from Harbin Institute of Technology, Harbin, China, in 2014 and 2016, respectively. He completed his Ph.D. degree in power electronics at Aalborg University, Denmark. He is currently a DFF International Postdoc with both Aalborg University, Denmark and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. He was a visiting scholar with Georgia Institute of Technology, USA from Nov. 2018 to Feb. 2019, and with National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu, in 2013.
