Fraunhofer SiCeffizient project to boost EV ranges
Together with Porsche and Bosch, a Fraunhofer team is developing new inverters for electric cars that will convert energy between the battery and motor more efficiently than before. The ‘SiCeffizent’ project’s focus is on cooling silicon carbide semiconductors.
Marelli & Fraunhofer develop motorsport power module
Fraunhofer IZM and the Italian automotive supplier Marelli have developed a power module for electrified traction applications in motorsport. The all-silicon carbide-based module, called EDI, is said to enable higher conversion efficiencies and to be smaller and lighter.
