What’s up with wireless EV charging

Wireless charging is one of the hottest topics in the EV world these days. Several companies have systems on the path to commercial availability. Evatran has plans to sell aftermarket systems that will work with popular plug-in models such as the LEAF and the Volt. Qualcomm is using its London trial as a test bed… Read more »

Modeling And Simulation Of Fuel Cells And Electrolyzers

In recent years, we have seen a reawakened interest in hydrogen fuel cell and water electrolyzer technology, with an important economical driver being the continuously lowered costs for intermittent renewal electricity generation from wind and solar. Modeling and simulation are important tools in the design and development of these electrochemical systems. The Fuel Cell &… Read more »

Maximize motor windings fill factor with a unique new tooling concept (Webinar)

There are many innovations to improve power density in stator windings at the moment, with technologies like axial flux motors gaining momentum. On the other side, radial flux motors with hairpin windings are getting pushed to new limits in terms of efficiency and industrialization. WAFIOS is the world leader in wire bending for almost 130… Read more »

Recent years have seen a reawakened interest in hydrogen fuel cell and water electrolyzer technology, with an important economical driver being the continuously lowered costs for intermittent renewal electricity generation from wind and solar. Modeling and simulation are important tools in the design and development of these electrochemical systems. Version 5.6 of COMSOL Multiphysics® introduces… Read more »

Electric truck fleets will need a lot of power, and utilities need to start planning now

Electric buses and trucks are coming. In June, the California Air Resources Board instituted a zero-emission mandate for truck sales—manufacturers must make zero-emission trucks at least 30% of sales by 2030. Following that announcement, 15 states plus DC have said they want all new trucks to be electric by 2050. Granted, such measures are best… Read more »

Oregon legislators consider sales incentive for EVs

Oregon legislators are considering a bill that would establish a $1-million fund to provide a $250 incentive to automobile sales staff who sell electric vehicles to Oregon residents (it exempts sales at exclusively electric dealerships). The bill (HB 2514) addresses two interrelated issues, according to its sponsor, Representative Phil Barnhart. First, $250 would be a… Read more »

Volkswagen working on automated DC charging

EV drivers are demanding more range, and automakers are responding. However, as several observers have noted, this will introduce a new set of challenges. Better batteries can hold more energy, and consumers certainly don’t want longer charging times, so higher charging power levels will be required. That, in turn, will require thicker (or perhaps liquid-cooled)… Read more »
