Title

EMC Design Considerations for Sustainable Energy Applications

Speaker

Michelle Liu, Tesla

Abstract

Over the past fifteen years, there has been increased use of electronic power processing in sustainable energy applications, which includes electric vehicles, PV system, energy storage systems and other renewable applications. The emergence of faster advanced semiconductor devices provides an opportunity for a higher switching frequency of the power converters, but aggravates electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems in the system. EMI filters are unavoidable parts of power electronics systems and make up a significant portion of their total volume and weight. This presentation of author's recent research and engineering effort towards unveiling some complex EMC regulations, design process and practical design challenges. Some future research areas are also discussed regarding possible improvements in EMC design improvements through system-level optimization, circuit topology selection and EMI filter architecture.
