I.1.5 - Power Electronics Thermal Management (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)

Gilbert Moreno, Susan Rogers

Research output: NRELManagement


This project conducts research to develop new power electronics thermal management technologies to increase power density, enable high WBG temperature operation, and decrease cost. The performance (e.g., thermal resistance, pumping power) of the power electronics cooling technologies developed in this project are compared to the performance of current, on-road technology. One of the main challenges to achieving high power densities is associated with packaging of high-temperature (up to 250 degrees C) WBG devices near lower-temperature-rated components (e.g., electrical boards and capacitors).
