Hioki Europe

Accurate reactor evaluation in power electronics made easy
Roy Hali, Head of Product Management

High-frequency reactors, in combination with power electronic switching elements such as IGBT, SiC and GaN FETs, are used in a variety of solutions in electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). Examples include step-up DC/DC converters, AC/DC converters, on-board chargers, etc. In the past, elements such as IGBTs were used as switching elements, and switching frequencies were on the order of tens of kilohertz.
In recent years, in the quest of reducing the size of above-mentioned converters and improving the power density of drivetrain, SiC and GaN switching elements are being used more often. As the switching frequencies of SiC and GaN elements are greater than 100 kHz, it is necessary to validate the performance and measure losses of switching elements as well as the reactors. By directly measuring reactor loss, as well as iron loss and copper loss ratios within reactor loss, you can significantly reduce research and development time and identify areas of improvement for reaching even higher efficiency and smaller form factors. In this presentation, Hioki will present a reliable and accurate solution for rector evaluation.

Omicron Lab

Why a VNA is mandatory for every electronics engineering lab
Florian Hämmerle

In this session we will explain the power of a low-frequency vector network analyzer and why it is a must-have to use one in your engineering lab. A low-frequency VNA can serve as a frequency response analyzer for transfer function measurements and dynamic system analysis. It can be used as a powerful impedance analyzer or measure s-parameters of filters and amplifiers. Use the power of the frequency domain to place poles and zeros in the control loop to stabilize your systems quickly. Avoid EMI surprises by analyzing your component resonances and filter structures before the compliance measurements. Simply improve the design process by using a more systematic approach, validated by frequency domain measurements.

Electrification Strategy of Volkswagen Group with Focus on Power-Inverters

Volkswagen’s transition from an automotive manufacturer to a mobility group leads to big changes and hence a reset of our priorities – one corner stone: the consequent electrification of our powertrains. This shift in focus and competences makes working in the technical development so much more exciting and rewarding. Let us show you, what our goals are, which products we develop and how we contribute to a mobility for generations to come
