The paper gives an overview of the basic requirements, concepts, and trends regarding a system integration of power electronics in hybrid (HEV) and electric vehicles (EV). A site-of-action system integration of the various power electronics subsystems minimizes costs and construction space requirements. New technologies that foster a system integration of power electronics and a merging with the mechanical environment are presented. The focus is on power modules and passive components.
