R-PODID – Reliable Powerdown for Industrial Drives

Reliable Powerdown for Industrial Drives

R-PODID is an EU project co-funded by KDT JU aiming at developing an automated, cloudless, short-term fault prediction for electric drives, power modules and power devices that can be integrated into power converters.


  • Methodology for fault-prediction model generation from sparse training sets or system simulation
  • Power electronics with integrated support for embedded AI
  • 24 h fault-prediction for Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicon Carbide (SiC) based power converters
  • 24 h fault-prediction and fault mitigation for electric drives
  • Sensors for reliability prediction in power modules

LCM is a consortium member contributing its expertise in electric drive simulation and modeling to the project. Novel machine models that offer reduced simulation time will be developed in the project and used to simulate fault conditions and shutdown processes.

LCM’s activities are closely interconnected with the consortium partners AVL List GmbH, Silicon Austria Labs, Brno University of Technology and Johannes Kepler University Linz to develop the use case for safe handling of fault cases of the industrially widely used asynchronous machine.
