Upcoming seminars at IEA

Past seminars


Wednesday 1/10 kl 16:00, M:IEA (seminar room)

Master Thesis Presentation:

"Electro Mechanic Design and Test of Conductive Electrical Road System - Primary Circuit"

Marcus Andersson

Description:
This master thesis is about building and testing of a new idea for how to provide cars with power directly from the road by a conductive connection. For safety reasons this requires switching on and off the power to small sections as the vehicles passes by. A very compact 600 V, 400 A, IGBT switch prototype with driver and short-circuit protection are designed and built. The design are analyzed and tested for both thermal and electric properties. Furthermore a compact specialized high current connector has been built and tested.

Supervisor: Lars Lindgren, IEA

Examiner: Mats Alaküla, IEA

Opponents: Christopher Dahlin.


Wednesday 22/10 kl 16:00, M:IEA (seminar room)

Master Thesis Presentation:

"Electro Mechanic Design and Test of Conductive Electrical Road System - Overall System Design and Protection"

Philip Abrahamsson

Description:
This master thesis is about building and testing of a new idea for how to provide cars with power directly from the road by a conductive connection. The electric road system is analyzed with regard to dynamic thermal and electromagnetic properties including lighting protection. The thermal model includes solar radiation and variations in traffic intensity. Both FEM models and lumped parameter models are used.

Supervisor: Lars Lindgren, IEA

Examiner: Mats Alaküla, IEA




Seminars are held in the IEA lecture room, ground floor in southeastern corner of the M-building, unless stated otherwise. Seminar Announcer:Fadi Abdallah.
