New project for the Electronics Group resulting in one more postdoc and one more PhD student

Recently the Electronics Group at DTU Electrical Engineering have conducted research in and testing a new type of power supplies - the Smart Chargers.

Especially when using high voltages (>200 V) this type of power supplies are able to reduce both price and energy loss when converting between alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC).

The Smart Charger project is a joint project between the Innovation Fund Denmark, the Electronics Group, Lithium Balance A/S, Danfysik A/S, and ApS.

The purpose of this project is amongst other things through the development of the new power supplies to reduce the loss of current and to deliver significantly lower price on the "green" current compared to that of the existing power supplies.

This will be done by developing a shared platform for power supplies thereby being able to create unique advantages for battery charging and supplies of electrolysis.
