Electric Machines for Automotive Propulsion: History and Future

It has been over twenty years now since the GM EV1 and the Toyota Prius hybrid were launched, one using an induction motor and the other an interior permanent magnet machine. This is just enough time to start to look at these machines from a historical perspective, examining early technical choices and changes over time to the present day, focusing on systems that were commercialized by automakers. The talk will draw from published reports and teardowns of these motors to explain and quantify improvements over time. The presentation will then logically follow with an attempt to extrapolate into the future, looking at what is likely and perhaps less likely to be seen in future electric and hybrid vehicles, from a point of view of materials, topology.

Reliably of Power Electronics in Electrified Transportation System

Emerging electrified transportation systems such as turbo electric aircraft, UAV, electric ship, and electric/hybrid vehicles adopt more electric propulsion and power system architectures which controls are enabled by modern power converters. Significant research effort has been provided by federal agencies and various commercial research institutes to design the power converters to be more reliable and efficient within small footprint for effective transportation applications. However, the application of new and the emerging technology in mission- and safety- critical system has led to significant reliability concerns with new mechanism of degradations, unexpected failure modes, and high bandwidth electromagnetic interferences (EMI).

Ultra fast charging method for lithium ion batteries considering degradation

Reduction of charging time is one of challenging issues for different applications of lithium ion batteries. Particularly, it is true with electric vehicles because a relatively long charging time compared with that of internal combustion engines presents one of barriers for wide acceptance of EVs. In addition, the charging time is elongated as more battery is installed to extend the drive range.

Testing and Certifying Artificial Intelligence Models for Autonomous and Connected Vehicles

Connected and autonomous vehicles increasingly incorporate Machine Learning (ML) models for solving autonomous navigation and control issues, including avoiding collisions that are caused by humans’ distracted driving. The code behind these ML models is mostly standard and their behavior depends heavily on their training, Traditional assurance techniques, which supported test-based safety and security certifications, require radical re-thinking to work in this scenario. While statistical testing provides a promising line of attack to this problem, there is lack of literature on its concrete application for online and offline testing of ML models embedded is autonomous vehicles.

Technology development for Electrified Transportation- Present and Near Future

In this talking, current technology developments in electric machines and power electronics will be presented for electrified transportations, including cars on road and vehicles in air. In electrified transportations, electric machines replace IC engines and semiconductor power converters replace geared transmissions. Various on-going examples will be given to highlight the salient advantages and serious challenges for electrified transportations in terms of performance and costs. Other technology developments including batteries and battery infrastructures will also be surveyed.

Security for Autonomous and Connected Vehicles

Connected and autonomous vehicles are driver-less vehicles that incorporate various technologies to provide efficient and safe navigation by sensing their environments. Vehicles connectivity allows them to share location, speed, as well as weather, road and traffic conditions with their infrastructure. Their automated capability relies on onboard sensors to survey their surroundings to decide their activities during the driving trip. The connectivity and automation features require more sensor to be integrated and more computation resources to provide reliable and robust transportation infrastructure. However, as the computation resources and connectivity and automation levels increase, the system becomes more vulnerable to security attacks.

Electric Vehicles as Flexible Resources for the Power Grid

The sales of electric vehicles are increasing very fast in recent years. More than two million plug-in electric vehicles (PHEVs) were sold in 2018 and the total PHEVs on road surpassed five million worldwide. The increase of PHEVs is bringing more and more charging loads to the power grids. Because the charging loads of PHEVs usually have flexibility to some extent, they can act as flexible resources to support the secure and economic operation of power systems.

Accelerating Sustainable Mobility: A Policy Framework for Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

The world is on the brink of the largest mobility revolution ever! A convergence of multiple societal trends and technological advances, such as batteries and autonomous, connected, electric and smart (ACES) vehicles are already transforming our mobility systems. Another key component in this shift is deploying charging infrastructure that operates responsibly and produces-the greatest societal benefit. This talk will present a policy framework for EV charging infrastructure supported by five-interconnected components: 1)environmental advantages-reduce and avoid carbon emissions from internal combustion engines by charging off the electricity grid; 2) public health benefits-reduce significant medical costs and premature death by charging with renewable electricity;
