what are the main challenges faced while facilitating the reduction of component costs?
Quality is one of the issues or reduced rejection is the main issue to deal with, in manufacturing power electronics components economically.
The main challenges faced while facilitating the reduction of component costs:
1. Isolation for high voltage
2. Heat transfer
3. EMC filters
4. Power connection to motor phases
The issues in the high cost of power devices are:
They demand high quality starting material to withstand high voltage.
They need high-quality control and intensive testing during and after the manufacturing, which increases the production cost.
They need special edge treatment to prevent the edge breakdown.
