Project High Performance Power Electronics Integrations

The HiPE project is part of the EU Call “HORIZON-CL5-2021-D5-01-02. Nextgen vehicles: Nextgen EV components: Integration of advanced power electronics and associated controls (2ZERO)” and aims to develop a new family of highly energy efficient, cost-effective, modular, compact and integrated wide bandgap (WBG) power electronics solutions for the next generation of battery electric vehicles (BEVs)


In total, five objectives (O1 – O5) were defined, each of which covers a specific set of innovative research measures:

O1: Improve the efficiency of integrated WBG-based power electronics (PE) components and systems

O2: Reduce the cost of power electronics components and systems

O3: Reduce size and weight of power electronics and electric powertrains

O4: Increase reliability and dependability through integrated design and intelligent control

O5: Implement WBG-based power electronics meeting automotive quality levels
