We are working it the project "Advanced skin effect models for future 3D wide bandgap power modules". This is a research project funded by the Swedish Research Council, grant no. 2018-05252. The project investigates the surface Partial Element Equivalent Circuit method to model parasitic in wide bandgap power modules. The method is based on the electric field integral equation. The method requires meshing complex geometry, and solving integrals that model currents and charges in the structure. The simulations require resources in terms of memory and computational power that cannot be provided by a personal computer. For this reason, we are applying for a SNIC project.
