Aerospace applications are not new but potentially the final frontiers for power electronics research and developments. On the aviation side, because of the need for fuel saving and greenhouse gas reduction, more electric aircraft (MEA), unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, and future hybrid and turbo electric propulsion call for a new generation of power converters, motor drives, and solid-state circuit breakers with unprecedented power density, efficiency, and reliability  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  . On the space side, lunar, Mars, and deep space expeditions, will need light-weight and highly efficient power electronics systems to work reliably at places that no man has gone before, where space radiation and extreme operation conditions present more challenges to power devices and circuits  ,  ,  .
