Academic Lecture: Fundamentals of Power-train Design for More-Electric Vehicles
2015-5-5
Time: 13:30, May 6th, 2015

Location: Room 220, Taishan Research Building

Speaker: Nigel Schofield,  joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at McMaster University, Ontario, Canada, as a Full Professor with Tenure.  His research interests include electro-magnetic power-trains for all- and hybrid-electric vehicles; the vehicular application of electro-chemical and electro-static energy sources; hydrogen fuel cell systems; aerospace machines and actuators; the industrial application of electro-magnetic devices and wind generator design and renewable energy schemes.  Prof. Schofield is a Chartered Engineer and member of the UK IET and IEEE.

Abstract: Future vehicle power-train concepts will invariably encompass dual or multiple off- or on-board energy sources, each of which will have distinct electrical interface characteristics. These features, coupled with dynamic electro-mechanical load profiles and wide thermal and environmental operating environments have a significant impact on the design of power-train components for all- and hybrid-electric vehicles covering a variety of market sectors, for example, road, air and marine. The lecture will cover typical specification requirements, power-train component options and their electrical and electronic interconnection for more-electric vehicle power-trains.
