1. A modular power converter comprising:

  • a thermal support at least partially defining an electric reference plane and configured to receive and circulate a coolant stream for extraction of heat;

    an interface plate secured to the thermal support and contacting the coolant stream during operation;

    at least one power electronic device subassembly disposed on the interface plate and comprising a power electronic device and contact pads for transmitting signals to and from the power electronics device, the interface plate and the electronics device subassembly being at least partially thermally matched to create a desired thermal gradient to remove heat from the power electronics device during operation via the interface plate and the thermal support.
