Survivable Power Electronics and Motor Drive Systems

Survivable Motor Drive

Most mission critical applications desire the system to be fault tolerant with adequate protection and built-in fallback strategies. This issue has two crucial components that need to be addressed- fault detection, and fault tolerance. In modern applications, failures can occur either in the electronic or the mechanical component of the system. At EDEC, we a re actively developing techniques that can be used to identify the source of the failure. In addition, we are also developing techniques that can be used to enable continuous operation in the event of a failure.
