Today’s Webinar: Using MLCCs as resonant capacitors in wireless charging for EVs

Wireless Power Transfer circuits demand stable high capacitance, high voltage capacitors to act as the tank capacitor in the LC resonant circuit. Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) are increasingly used for this application due to their volumetric efficiency and cost-effective mounting techniques, but there are caveats that need to be followed to achieve reliable operation. This presentation addresses… Read more »

Webinar: Ensuring crimp quality for large gauge wire in EVs

The rapid growth of EVs, HEVs, and PHEVs has led to an increase in the use of large gauge wires and cables, but large wire crimping presents its own set of challenges. Harness manufacturers must take care to ensure quality connections where these cables and terminations perform. This webinar, presented by TE Connectivity, will focus… Read more »

Today’s Webinar: Power GaN as a technology of choice for volume EV applications

As vehicle electrification increases, so do the requirement for power semiconductors to provide highly efficient power conversion at increasingly higher switching frequency.

A new class of thermally conductive adhesives has been developed for directly bonding prismatic battery cells to cooling plates. This lightweight technology not only affords higher energy density in EVs but greatly reduces manufacturing cost and complexity. Key Takeaways: One route to achieving these goals is the elimination of the housings of battery modules and bonding… Read more »

Tomorrow’s webinar: Addressing MLCC performance issues in high-voltage EV applications

In recent years, multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) have emerged as an excellent capacitor option for the high-power electrical systems needed in electric vehicle (EVs) due to their small physical size, low inductance, and ability to operate at higher temperatures. However, engineers are facing two big challenges with MLCCs including DC bias that can cause capacitance losses of 80 to… Read more »

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 »
