Special Session #7: Design and Testing Technologies for Next Generation Electric Vehicle Components - VPPC 2022

Special Session #7: Design and Testing Technologies for Next Generation Electric Vehicle Components

Co-Organizer: Valentin Ivanov, Technische Universität Ilmenau, Germany
Co-Organizer: Aldo Sorniotti, University of Surrvey, UK
Co-Organizer: Viktor Skrickij, Vilnius Tech, Lithuania

Call for Papers

Recent industrial developments and research studies demonstrate remarkable results in technologies related to transportation electrification. Now, there is a need to move from successful pilot solutions to products that meet automotive industrial standards, functional safety constraints, and circular economy targets. This requires a proper consideration of the following aspects on design and testing stages:
– Targeted use of electric motors, power electronics and other electric vehicle components having exceptional high operating and response performance, highly beneficial for energy efficiency, driving safety and comfort;
– Component integration, especially towards intelligent active corners / active wheels with modular solutions uniting powertrain and chassis actuators;
– Holistic verification and validation methodologies for electric vehicle components evaluation, incl. the use of networked x-inthe-loop technologies and collaborative designing tools.

This motivated to propose this Special Session, where the engineers and researchers could share their ideas and recent results in advancement of powertrain and chassis systems and components of next generation electric vehicles.
