In-wheel motors for electric vehicles evolving fast

In-wheel motors for electric vehicles evolving fast
Electric motor drive is key to all electric vehicles (EV) and it is taking new forms. In-wheel motors are successful in two-wheel EVs but they have rarely been seen in larger vehicles due to safety and cost concerns and a fear that unsprung weight gives a rougher ride. Near-wheel motors are a compromise.

Giving the battery second life

Giving the battery second life
The first batch of electric vehicle batteries are reaching their retirement age and the next ten years will see a huge increase in the volume of retired batteries. What will happen to the huge amount of used EV batteries? IDTechEx has recently released the latest report: “Second-life Electric Vehicle Batteries 2020-2030”.

Battery management IC maximises driving range for EVs

Battery management IC maximises driving range for EVs
Renesas Electronics has announced its fourth-generation lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery management IC that offers unmatched life time accuracy. The ISL78714 provides accurate cell voltage and temperature monitoring, along with cell balancing and extensive system diagnostics to protect 14-cell Li-ion battery packs while maximising driving time and range for hybrid and electric vehicles (HEV/MHEV/PHEV/BEV).

Death of internal combustion with EV range

Death of internal combustion with EV range
Electric aircraft have got there. Cars next. With no road resistance, the best electric aircraft, the Bye Aerospace eFlyer, achieves 1000km with its solar wing option. This range will be the final nail in the coffin of internal combustion cars. It is longer than some of them offer. With gasoline stations shutting down, guess who then gets range anxiety!  By Dr Peter Harrop, Chairman at IDTechEx

What is the true cost of driving green?

What is the true cost of driving green?
With just over 20 years until petrol and diesel cars are planned to be banned, Britain is weighing up the idea of switching to ‘green’ driving more than ever before. MoneySuperMarket has conducted a study to determine just how viable this switch is. The data reveals the true cost of making the jump to electric versus driving a petrol or diesel car, as well as the number of charging points currently available in different UK regions, a key factor in the plan to turn the UK electric.

Accelerating the spread of SiC inverters for EVs and railcars

Accelerating the spread of SiC inverters for EVs and railcars
Showa Denko has developed a second generation high-grade silicon carbide (SiC) epitaxial wafer (HGE-2G) suitable for power semiconductors. SDK has been mass-producing the first generation of high grade SiC epitaxial wafer with very low defect density under the trade name of 'High-Grade Epi' (HGE). HGE-2G achieves further improvements in quality with six inches (150mm) diameter.

The EV project powering next-gen battery systems

The EV project powering next-gen battery systems
As the automotive industry seeks to electrify its product ranges, the thermal management of high capacity batteries used for EVs is proving a significant challenge. The performance and efficiency of battery cells can deteriorate - and their ageing can be accelerated - if operating temperatures exceed the upper or lower limits of a comparatively narrow range. In extreme cases, exceeding upper operating limits can risk thermal runaway of cells, leading to catastrophic failure and potentially, fire.
