Our PhD student Prasanth Thummala presents "DEAP" paper in Italy

The 2nd edition of the IEEE International Electric Vehicle Conference (IEVC) took place 16-19 December, 2014, in Florence, Italy.

 

Our PhD student Prasanth Thummala presented a paper entitled “Design of a High Voltage Bidirectional DC-DC Converter for Driving Capacitive Incremental Actuators usable in Electric Vehicles (EVs)” under the topic of “EV power electronics and motor drives”.

 

The paper is co-authored by Dragan Maksimovic, University of Colorado,Boulder, USA, Zhe Zhang, and Michael A. E. Andersen, DTU Electrical Engineering, Copenhagen, Denmark, and Sarban Rahimullah, LEAP Technology, Denmark.

 

The paper describes the design and implementation of a high voltage (0-2.5 kV) bidirectional DC-DC converter for driving a new type of capacitive incremental actuator. The capacitive incremental actuator is made from a new type of smart material called Dielectric Electro Active Polymer (DEAP). This DEAP incremental actuator will have promising applications in the automotive industry, hence in electric vehicles (EVs).

 

The IEVC gave the participants a unique platform to exchange ideas, discover novel opportunities, reacquaint with colleagues, meet new friends, and broaden their knowledge.

 

Keynote and technical sessions were integrated with dialogue and workshop sessions chaired by companies and academia representatives. Also, an exhibition and a show drive provided a unique opportunity for live demonstrations and practical experiences.
