A Design Validation Plan and Report (DVP&R) is a document that consists of tests conducted to evaluate the hardware functionality of a design to ensure it meets its design specifications or and performance requirement.
Discrete devices or power modules? This is a question every power electronics engineer faces at some point in their career. I recently had to answer this question for myself and had trouble finding existing literature on the subject, so I thought I’d share my thoughts on the question.
After managing the development of two electric racecars over the past two years, I have noticed that the number of students who graduate with solid understanding of the system engineering design process is far and few between. This process is at the core of every engineering project and ultimately drives development forward. All engineers should know how the system design process works, not just project managers.
