The Future Advancement for Power Electronics and EV Applications

10:00am - 11:00am
ECE meeting room 2515-2516 (2/F via Lifts 25/26)

Over the recent years, the electric vehicle (EV) industry has made tremendous progress towards a more environmentally friendly automobile industry around the world. Wide bandgap power devices started to replace traditional Si transistors but still requires improvements to minimize losses, maintain reliability over time, and optimize the performance during different operating conditions. EV is my research interest for a greener planet. My topic will cover the onboard charger, electric motor enabled by SiC MOSFETs, DC/DC converter design, and thermal management.
