The LEDLUM project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 731466.
The LEDLUM project is planned to run for 36 months. It is organized into eight work packages (WP) with significant dependencies and expected synergies between them which are described shortly in the following.
WP1: System Architecture [M01-M06]
WP1 will define the overall architecture of the LED driver systems, the system components and interfaces and the system requirements. The system requirements will be originated from the market view as well as from the manufacturing and supply chain point of view. These inputs will be merged and synthesized into the system architecture and requirements of the overall LED driver system.
WP2: Passives [M01-M33]
WP2 deals with integrated passive components for use in the LEDLUM’s electrical engine. Furthermore, the development on a novel magnetic material, optimisation of a laminated magnetic core structure/process as well as magnetic research will be done within this WP.
WP3: Semiconductors [M01-M36]
WP3 focuses on the power semiconductors and integrated circuits of LEDLUM’s electrical engine. Because of different operating conditions of the power device in the AC-DC and DC-DC converter, a single power device cannot be reused in all parts of the system and different options will hence be investigated for the AC-DC and DC-DC converter. The physical realization of the optimum solution for the power devices and ICs represents the goal of this WP.
WP4: Power Electronics [M01-M36]
WP4 contains the research and development of the AC-DC and DC-DC converter as well as the fabrication of the sub-components for the demonstrators. The goal of this WP lies on the improvement of the major market drivers in respect of size, volume, cost and lifetime. This WP and its success will be reliant on the overall success of the LEDLUM project.
WP5: Driver System [M03-M33]
WP5 targets the assembly of the AC-DC and DC-DC converter together with the controls and power management to obtain a complete driver system. This WP further focuses on the design and implementation of the overall control and interface for the LED driver. Moreover, the WP concentrates on the assembly of all the individual blocks into a single and complete LED driver, which can be tested on a system level.
WP6: Luminaire System [M11-M36]
WP6 uses the developed LED driver in order to build complete LED light fitting systems. Two LED light fitting systems will be designed as part of this WP.
WP7: Dissemination, Communication, Exploitation, Standardisation and Training [M01-M36]
WP7 obtains inputs from all other WPs and ensures the communication and dissemination of results achieved within the individual WPs to the outside parties as well as to participating entities. Further, WP7 will support the partners to exploit the achieved results and impacts on the European and international market. Results within each WP will lead to contributions for training measures, coordinated by this WP.
WP8: Project, Risk, and Innovation Management [M01-M36]
Finally, WP8 interacts with all other WPs in order to ensure a successful project lifetime with respect to risk and innovation management. WP8 shows dependencies to all other WPs as it coordinates and ensures that the tasks are in line with the project work plan and performs scientific coordination as well, in order to reach the common goal of LEDLUM.
