Modeling Power Electronics for Electric Powertrain Applications

Presenter:  Sabin Carpiuc, MathWorks, Cambridge, United Kingdom
Date:  Wednesday, October 27, 2021, 10:00 am New York Time

Abstract: The need to minimize the environmental impact of the transportation sector has fueled the electrification trend. A key factor that enables electrification is the development of power electronics and embedded systems. However, with progress comes challenges that need to be addressed by the research and development community in a very short timeframe. These challenges include optimizing the performance indices such as power density, costs, losses, and failure rate. Understanding the system and translating it into mathematical models with different levels of fidelity that suits a particular problem is critical. This will speed up the development cycle. Moreover, a good model can be easily reused in follow-up projects.  

The goal of this presentation is to show how the modeling of power electronics components with a variety of different levels of fidelity can help solve these challenges. The talk will cover case studies going from simple system-level models that run fast in simulation and are suitable for real-time evaluation to detailed models used for device analysis. 


Dr. Sabin Carpiuc (M'11, SM’21) received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in systems engineering from the ''Gheorghe Asachi'' Technical University of Iasi, Romania, in 2012, and 2015, respectively.

From March 2010 to June 2016, he was with the Powertrain Division, Business Unit Hybrid Electric Vehicle, Continental Automotive Romania, Iasi R&D Center, Romania. From October 2010 to June 2016, he has been also an Associate Teaching Assistant with the Department of Automatic Control and Applied Informatics, the ''Gheorghe Asachi'' Technical University of Iasi. In June 2016, he joined the Physical Modeling group at MathWorks in Cambridge, United Kingdom.

His research interests include physical modeling, electric machines and power electronics, automotive electric traction drives, model predictive control and optimization, constrained control, and automotive control systems.
