E-Mobility Engineering is the communications hub of the electrified powertrain. It looks in-depth at the engineering behind the electric and hybrid vehicle industry, providing concise coverage of the array of engineering challenges found in this fast-growing market.

The content is written by engineers, for engineers, the aim being to supply those working in all sectors with the information and inspiration they need, keeping them fully abreast of the latest technological developments.

In the same way as Race Engine Technology provides for racing powertrain engineers, and Unmanned Systems Technology for unmanned vehicle engineers, this new launch is the magazine for electric and hybrid powertrain engineers.

The launch issue will contain articles on the following:

Pipistrel Alpha Electro - this dossier feature will look at the electric two-seat trainer aircraft from Slovenia that is blazing the trail for all-electric aircaft. Based around a low-drag carbon composite airframe, the Alpha has a flight endurance of one hour with a half hour reserve. It is powered by a 60kW motor with a pair of lithium-ion battery packs.  We delve into the detail of what it takes to make an airworthy electric aircraft with Pipistrel's engineering team.

Volabo Intelligent Stator Cage Drive (ISCAD) Motor - Munich, Germany based startup Volabo has developed an innovative motor system called the ISCAD. The core principal of the system is the use of low system voltages, 48V to be precise, rather than the 400V plus used for most traction motor applications. While there are a number of 48V motors designed for use in mild-hybrid applications, Volabo is pushing its technology as being suitable for primary drive motors in EV and other E-Mobility applications. Using a low voltage has obvious safety benefits, removing the need for high voltage wiring in a vehicle, but brings with it many challenges, not least the problem of power loss, due to the high current draw needed to achieve useful power output. The ISCAD design claims to circumvent these issues by using a massive stator cage instead of copper coils, constructed from a series of bars, each of which has its own dedicated power electronics module.

Focus: Thermal Management - The E-Mobility Engineering “Focus” examines all elements that are critical to the success of vehicle electrification. Encompassing everything from motors, high power semiconductors to connectors and cabling – every component, the materials it’s made of, the coatings & surface treatment applied to it, and how to improve it will be studied in great detail.
In our launch issue, we look at the highly innovative field of thermal management. Managing heat is a particular challenge for e-mobility systems. We will look at the latest technologies, from simulation and design to materials and architectures that will help manage the thermal requirements of electrical mobility systems, from the battery and traction motors to the controlling electronics.

High Power Semiconductor Technology - Control of high power systems is a key element in any e-mobility design. We will look at the semiconductor technologies being used for the drivetrain and charging system both in a vehicle and in the infrastructure. We will be looking at the migration from silicon to wide bandgap semiconductor technologies such as silicon carbide and gallium nitride that can operate at higher voltages and temperatures to provide higher efficiencies in a design.

Show Report: Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo - Located at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre, the 2018 Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo brings together companies from all over the world to showcase and discuss solutions for electrifying marine vessel powertrains. We will report on the latest developments in maritime propulsion technology from the exhibition floor.

Focus: Connectors - Transmission of power and data throughout an electric vehicle is dependent on judicious selection of connectors for the desired provision and protection of physical interfaces. We will look at some of the critical points and developments in connector technologies for E-mobility systems.
