Keeping EV tech innovation environment-friendly 

By |2024-01-08T15:01:29+00:00December 20th, 2023|

Keeping EV tech innovation environment-friendly The environmental performance of the initial design for the integrated inverter/on-board charger has been thoroughly evaluated. We have scrutinized the impact of key innovative elements within SCAPE, such as the development of high-voltage switching cells, converter legs, and advanced thermal management solutions. This [...]

Habemus Switching Cell Prototype!

By |2024-01-08T15:05:39+00:00November 30th, 2023|

Habemus Switching Cell Prototype! The first high-voltage switching cell prototype, built around a 650 V SiC power MOSFET, has been successfully implemented and tested! The switching cell includes advanced functionalities such as embedded switching-cell voltage, current and temperature measurements, and automatic fault-detection and isolation. All functionalities have been experimentally verified at [...]

Towards a compact and efficient integration of SCAPE’s switching cells

By |2024-01-08T15:03:56+00:00November 8th, 2023|

Towards a compact and efficient integration of SCAPE's switching cells SCAPE aims at integrating the main building blocks of the project’s high voltage power converters (switching cells) using chip-embedding technology. This approach provides many benefits (compactness, low parasitic inductance, etc.) but requires a number of specific technological steps. Among these are: - [...]

Building SCAPE’s integrated inverter/on-board charger mock-up

By |2024-01-08T15:04:58+00:00October 17th, 2023|

Building SCAPE's integrated inverter/on-board charger mock-up SCAPE follows an iterative process for the design of the power converter prototypes, consisting of two main steps. First, a mock-up low-power version of the integrated inverter/on-board charger (IIOBC) is developed, in order to validate the switching-cell and converter-leg circuits, the [...]

SCAPE’s on-board charging revolution

By |2024-01-08T15:06:48+00:00September 18th, 2023|

SCAPE's on-board charging revolution SCAPE aims at significantly enhancing the power density of automotive on-board chargers. SCAPE's innovative approach utilizes traction motor stator windings and the traction inverter to develop a non-isolated integrated charger. This innovation not only replaces the need for currently used dedicated equipment in automotive applications but also offers [...]
