Today’s Webinar: Ultra anti-abrasion high-voltage contact plating

Virtually every major car manufacturer around the world is shifting its strategy and placing more emphasis on its battery-powered, hybrid, and plug-in-hybrid vehicle product lines. Consumers want their EVs to recharge more quickly, drive longer distances between charges, and last longer. But electrified vehicles and their systems, including high-powered charging (among others), are extremely sophisticated…. Read more »

Today’s Webinar: Simplified EV battery and fuel cell testing with regenerative DC loads

Simplified, cost-effective testing of EV batteries and fuel cells with regenerative DC electronic loads, and bidirectional DC power supplies that incorporate them, can return up to 96% of the energy absorbed by the load to the power grid. This energy-conscious approach to test saves utility costs and HVAC costs, reduces cooling fan size and noise,… Read more »

Challenges and benefits of moving from silicon to GaN in EV power electronics: WEBINAR

As vehicle electrification increases, so does the requirement of power semiconductors to provide highly efficient power conversion at increasingly higher switching frequency. A move from traditional Si to WBG, in particular Power GaN FETs, coupled with Cu clip-bonded package technology instead of traditional wire bonded D2 and TO packages can address the demands of electrification… Read more »

Trends in hybrid and electric mobility in commercial transportation

Experts predict that by 2040, most forms of transportation will leverage electric motors or cleaner sources of fuel to meet heightened emissions standards. As electrification expands across multiple industries, it must adapt to diverging requirements and unique challenges. Industrial and commercial transportation is a great example with longer routes, ranges or exposure to harsh environments…. Read more »

Webinar: Selecting safe and reliable components for high-voltage EVs

With high-performance electric vehicles such as the Porsche Taycan in production, and several manufacturers slated to release EVs with 800 V battery systems in 2021, using high-voltage battery systems in EVs is no longer just theoretical. The advent of higher-voltage vehicles means the decisions EV designers and OEMs must make when selecting the components used… Read more »

Webinar: Charging software for high-performance EVs

What if we told you the secret ingredient behind creating a high-performing and fully connected EV is your battery charger? Many vehicle manufacturers are concerned about whether EVs can outperform its diesel or petrol-powered counterparts with existing battery technology. This concern is debunked for many mid-powered EVs in industries such as construction, material handling, agriculture… Read more »

Webinar: Multiphysics modeling of fuel cells

Battery electric vehicles and fuel cell vehicles have unique marketplaces. Electric vehicles that must minimize weight (e.g. heavy duty trucks and airplanes) consider fuel cells as a primary power source for electrification, as they reduce the significant battery weight associated with battery electric vehicles. Engineers are continuing to develop new fuel cell designs for vehicles…. Read more »

Webinar: Rework ability of gap fillers in EV battery packs

The fast-growing electric vehicle market demands robust and efficient thermal management solutions for battery packs, such as gap fillers and thermal pads. Gap fillers outperform thermal pads to achieve lower thermal impedance, as the gap fillers conform to surface roughness before curing. This allows gap fillers to adhere well to surfaces and provide mechanical support… Read more »

Webinar: Designing silicon carbide solutions for EV fast charging

EV fast chargers bypass the vehicle’s on-board chargers (OBCs) for rapid direct battery charging. This allows batteries to be charged in just 30 minutes versus 4+ hours from OBCs. But the demands of these systems are significant. Design goals for fast chargers call for highly efficient power electronics and very high power density that’s possible… Read more »
