AbstractThis paper considers multi-disciplinary designing through a case study in which a medium voltage inverter is designed in collaborative work by departments of Energy Technology, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at Lappeenranta University of Technology. Design will aim at high levels of optimization on aspects of electrical, thermal and mechanical designs and pursue a more compact and efficient end design. Successfulness of the multi-domain will be examined through viewpoints formed by former knowledge of challenges in multidisciplinary design an evaluated accordingly. A high demand for cross trained professionals in multi-domain design cases is also implicated by the case study and as a result a new model for tasking and result-reviewing in such cases is proposed.
