Pollution levels are only enhancing the case for EVs

Pollution levels are only enhancing the case for EVs
Understanding around vehicle pollution levels has increased dramatically in recent years, and each new discovery has offered another reason to hasten the adoption of electric powertrains in land vehicles, marine craft and aircraft. Although ozone, carbon monoxide and other emissions have been subject to study, there is escalating concern about the acid gas, particulate and carbon dioxide emissions in particular.

Revisiting motor control in electric and hybrid vehicles

Revisiting motor control in electric and hybrid vehicles
  The fuel efficiency demands are pushing carmakers to produce more electric, hybrid, and PHEVs (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles). That, among other things, will require a major design overhaul of vehicle’s electronic building blocks such as ECUs and MCUs.

A unified EV charging standard in the making

A unified EV charging standard in the making
  Electric cars, as Mercedes-Benz Chief Dieter Zetsche puts it, need both convincing vehicles and a comprehensive charging infrastructure. Now, a robust charging network is taking shape in order to galvanise the mass consumer adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs).

Battery and charger solutions move e-bike into a new gear

Battery and charger solutions move e-bike into a new gear
  Europe’s enthusiasm for the clean environment and energy efficiency apparently makes the electric bicycles or e-bikes a poster child of the shift from mechanical to electronic control systems. However, what’s new in the e-bike story is that China is now only issuing new licenses for e-bikes while putting an end to the permits for gas-powered bicycles.

Advanced batteries for long-range electric cars

Advanced batteries for long-range electric cars
Limitation in energy density of batteries means in practice reduced driving range for electric cars, which is the largest obstacle to these vehicles entering the market. But, new technology using the reaction of metal and air could have a major impact on battery life. The EU-funded project NECOBAUT (New concept of metal-air battery for automotive application based on advanced nanomaterials) was launched with the aim to incorporate nanomaterials into batteries.

Mild hybrid vehicles to offer increased acceleration

Mild hybrid vehicles to offer increased acceleration
  Vehicle emissions regulations for 2025 and 2030 are unlikely to be met by conventional vehicle technology as applied to most vehicles beyond small cars. Going to strong hybrid and pure electric powertrains involves considerable expense and delay and often new platforms.

Power film capacitors designed for EV/HEV applications

Power film capacitors designed for EV/HEV applications
Two new capacitors have been introduced by AVX, the FHC1 and FHC2 Series power film capacitors were especially designed for electric and hybrid electric vehicle (EV/HEV) applications. Exhibiting high ripple current capabilities, high dielectric strength in operating conditions up to 115°C, low inductance, low ESR, and a low thermal footprint, the new FHC Series capacitors deliver high-reliability performance that compliments and protects high-power-density inverter products.

Rapid EV charger completes an 80% charge in 30 minutes

Rapid EV charger completes an 80% charge in 30 minutes
Electrical Vehicle (EV) charging business, eVolt, has launched its third-generation rapid charger, the Raption 50, which uses modular power technology for enhanced reliability and performance. eVolt is the eMobility brand of the SWARCO Group. Traditionally, rapid chargers operate via a single power pack, rendering a charger out of use if the power unit fails. The Raption 50, however, uses modular power technology with four individual power packs delivering 12.5kW each.
