Recent investments in the integration of sustainable energy resources into the energy infrastructure are steadily leading to the adoption of more solid-state converters in the power grid. These converters have relatively short operational lifespans in comparison with other power grid components, but they possess many attractive unrealized capabilities for the smart grid concept, such as real-time diagnosis and self-healing-- the latter is a long-term research plan of the U.S. energy sectors. Thus, basic research to (1) advance reliability and availability of sustainable energy conversion systems, and (2) realize real-time diagnosis and self-healing features are timely topics.
