TOPIC: New Challenges in Transportation Electrification, Powertrain Drives & New Power Electronics Architectures

When: Tuesday – July 26th, 12:00 PM US-Central


Electrification of the transportation industry and large-scale integration of renewable energy sources into the power grid represent some of the most disruptive transformations of our time. This engineering field brings ideas from Computational electromagnetics, power and energy, electromechanics, IoT, and artificial intelligence. This enables the creation of efficient, reliable, safe, and environmentally friendly means of implementing these ideas in new applications. In this talk, we will share our views on the future of these applications through a detailed discussion of the roles of computational modeling, Power electronics architectures, devices, the embedding of components, challenges of utilizing magnetics, and thermal management under higher operational frequencies, currents, and voltages. We will discuss packaging issues and describe some applications requiring increased power densities. This part of the presentation will identify the areas of research, which hold the promise of high impact and potential for achieving improved performance.
