Optimization of Inductive Charging Systems for Electric Vehicles with Vehicle-to-Grid Capability

The objective of this project is the development of a highly efficient inductive charging systems with the focus on Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) applications. The optimization is done in theory, simulation as well as experimental analysis and will comprise the following components: resonant compensation topologies, power electronics topologies, power semiconductor  components and materials, magnetic coupler geometry and design. [read more]To verify the results experimentally a 5 kW prototype is build up in the laboratory. Furthermore the charging system will be installed in an electric vehicle making it possible to perform realistic tests in different charging positions.

Research

  • Our research is focused on the design of high efficient and reliable PWM-based power converter architectures (single-cell, multi-cell, multilevel), their modelling and control to exploit commercial as well as new power semiconductor devices with minimum over design.
    We develop controllers for electric drives and we are particularly skilled in the integration of renewable energy systems into the electric grid.
