In this paper, the energy consumption per distance of a battery electric vehicle (BEV) is comprehensively investigated for various official and gathered real-world drive cycles, including the powertrain's cycle average efficiency. The powertrain component losses are modeled with a high level of detail, and they are functions of both speed and load.(More)
This paper presents experiences and results from a project task in power electronics for students at Chalmers University of Technology, Goteborg, Sweden, based on a flyback test board. The board is used in the course Power Electronic Devices and Applications. In the project task, the students design snubber circuits, improve the control of the output(More)
This paper presents the analysis of the study of the flicker emitted from the 1.2 MW tidal energy converter (TEC), SeaGen, against varying tidal parameters. This paper outlines the main elements of the TEC itself, the environment it is located in and the measurement set up. In this paper, the flicker emitted by the TEC is compared with the different tidal(More)
Reliability is an important performance index of a modern power electronics converter. The failure modes and effect analysis (FMEA) is one the mostly used techniques to evaluate or possibly improve the reliability of a power electronic system. This is one of the key challenges in electronics converters for vehicle industry. The project aim is to increase(More)
This paper presents a project task for power electronics students at Chalmers univeristy of technology, Göteborg, Sweden, based on a flyback test board. The board is used in the course Power Electronics 2. In the project task, the students design snubber circuits, improve the control of the output voltage, improve the gate drive of the main MOSFET(More)
