Nanoelectronics for an Energy Efficient Electrical Car

Emissions from road vehicles have to be reduced substantially in the future. The ultimate goal of most car manufacturers is to get to a completely electric vehicle, protecting the environment from emissions and noise, with alternative on-board energy sources (solar) and connection to the grid. In this context the project is addressing the development of highly efficient electrical vehicles, the battery control, the high-voltage components (IGBTs, high-voltage FETs) and the architectures and subsystems for the electronics of electrical vehicles. The objectives of the project are:

  • Development of nanoelectronics technologies, devices, circuits architectures and modules for electrical cars/vehicles and demonstration of these modules in a final systems.
  • New design and concepts for power train, power conversion, power management and battery management.
  • Achieve 35% energy saving, and increased integrability against the current state-of-the art EV power electronics systems.
