December 3-4, 2015
The SAE International Vehicle Electric Powertrain Forum will provide an open technical forum for engineers in advanced automotive powertrain design, hybrid electric vehicle design, xEV component suppliers, transportation authorities, automobile design consultants and automobile maintainers/sustainers, to get an overview of automobile design processes from concept to production, including power electronics design, motor design, battery management, 48V applications, fuel cells, modeling and simulation, and standardization.
The focus of symposium is to address the trends, the challenges and the solutions of electronic systems controlling vehicle propulsion. Presentations will covers the controls of electrified drivetrain, engines and transmission control, xEV applications. The emphasis of the presentations is on: electrification and the impacts of the various systems. Experts from OEM, Integrators, Tier suppliers and Academia will address issues critical to the automotive industry
The symposium will also provide practical information on electric motors, batteries, and power electronic and covers the major trends and players in the global industry. It will provide insight into the major design characteristics and performance of components used for electrified vehicles. It will examine various materials and trends being considered and used in in the latest designs.
