Project Achievements

Project Achievements

The project aims to advance our scientific understanding of the impact of WBG devices on machine insulation systems and to make recommendations that will support the design and test of machines with an optimised power density and lifetime when used with a WBG converter. 

The main achievements will be listed here:

Modelling Tools

PD and Insulation breakdown

Lifetime Assessment

We have developed methods to evaluate and quantify the lifetime of electrical machines subject to thermal and thermomechanical stresses. We are now working on methods to asses the effects of electrical stresses (voltage, switching frequency, dv/dt) on insulation lifetime.

Online Health Monitoring

We are working on online condition monitoring solutions to assess the health of machine insulation and evaluate the remaining useful life.
