Configurable Electric Vehicle (CEV) demonstrator

In order to make electric vehicles more and more attractive, it is essential to improve the range flow rate1 under limited charging infrastructures. Therefore, a universal input and high power electric energy conversion will impose new requirements on power modules with respect to power loss, density, voltage / current ratings and transient as well as environmental conditions, specifications of lifetime and cost. In order to meet these requirements, the configurable electric vehicle (CEV) has been proposed. This paper is devoted to present the experimental validation of the concept and particular attention is paid to the failure mechanism and robustness challenges of power modules.
