This course will provide an in-depth system analysis of high voltage (HV) electric vehicle (EV) and hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) power conversion. We will review how the MCU, GDIC and IGBTs function individually and as a system. We will discuss EV and HEV power systems and components for achieving a highly efficient and safe HV motor drive. Using NXP’s new HV IGBT GDIC, the GD3100, and Fuji GEN 7 IGBT modules as we will consider how to achieve smaller, more efficient, and lower cost HV inverter designs. We will review SPI interface programmability that enables any IGBT to be tuned for maximum efficiency, thermal design and layout considerations, power budget assessment, power up sequencing, managing short circuit faults, temperature monitoring, and advanced features provides monitoring and reporting of key safety functions to achieve system ASIL level D and ISO26262 certification.
