PEMOWE - Test network for the energy and mobility transition

Project Details


Upper Austria and Bavaria are experiencing two fundamental changes: the energy and mobility transition. An important prerequisite for the safe and resource-optimized use of technologies for power generation using renewable energy and electric mobility are reliable electrical and electronic components such as micro- and power electronics. The quality and performance assessment of these components necessitate test methods to ensure reliability, safety and performance throughout the components lifetime, e.g. by detecting faults such as defective capacitors directly at the prototype stage.
The main output of this project is the establishment of a permanent network that combines the different expertise of the project partners in component testing to provide SMEs an access to a wide range of testing methods. Relevant components from SMEs such as power semiconductors and technical demonstrators are tested on-site at each partner and passed on to the next partner for further analysis across borders. This is the only way to provide in-depth component testing that goes beyond current practice.
The multitude of different testing methods in the Austria-Bavaria border region is unique in its diversity and can contribute to increase the competitiveness of the regions. Electrical testing is the specialty of THD and HSK, while non-destructive testing of components is the specialty of FHOOe (CT), FHV (microscopy) and THD (X-ray testing). The most important target group are SME, which introduce testing innovations for electronic components used in energy conversion, storage, and e-mobility in joint projects with all project partners. For this purpose, they are actively contacted and involved in regular networking events. The long-term training of SMEs is the secondary objective of this project.
