Our three pilots aim to demonstrate to the industry, research and education institutions, and to innovation transfer organisations in the Baltic Sea Region the capabilities, benefits and peculiarities of the Advanced PE in application to the three areas. After the testing phase the achievements in the demonstration pilots will be evaluated. The results will be presented within case studies.
Pilot on Renewable Energies
Lead: Kiel University, Germany
Contact: Steffen Chemnitz
Implementing new architectures for wind power converters. Increasing the market share of power stack manufacturers. Enhancing the Advanced PE topologies for renewable energy applications.
For achieving this, we set up a demonstration pilot with a power converter with highest light load efficiency for renewable energy application. The demonstrator test and performance evaluation under lab conditions provides results to be integrated among others into training material for technical and R&D staff in SMEs.
Pilot on E-Mobility
Lead: University of Southern Denmark
Contact: Serguei Chiriaev
Often companies complain about the supposed barriers as high costs of new components and high requirements for device materials. We would like to refute these prejudices through field tests at two partner companies with garbage trucks and racing cars.
The demonstration pilot will show the advantages of Advanced PE-based solutions and their potential for the e-mobility. It also will increase the capacity of SMEs to uptake and implement Advanced PE based on wide bandgap semiconductors.
Pilot on Smart Houses
Lead: RISE Acreo AB
Contact: Teresita Qvarnström
Smart Houses aim to maximise energy savings and cost reductions by utilising power electronics and intelligent control systems to optimise the lighting, climate control and the use of other household appliances. For these purposes, efficient power conversion systems are an essential prerequisite for smart houses.
The solutions used in this pilot are installed at the University of Tartu and a typical family house in Sweden. The pilot shall show the advantages of PE-based solutions for the energy management in smart houses and analyse their impact on the Baltic Sea Region industry.
