EMC Design Techniques for Electric Vehicle Powertrain Modules

This article presents the EMC design techniques for electric vehicle powertrain modules. High voltage EMC regulations for powertrain modules are reviewed first to help understand associated design challenges. The design techniques are then demonstrated in detail to help engineers design a module that will pass the EMC requirements in the test chamber.

Researchers Developing Way to Charge Electric Vehicles as they Travel

Utah State University researchers are exploring the feasibility of transmitting coils being installed below roads to wirelessly charge electric vehicles as they are in motion. According to one of the researchers on the project, range anxiety is a significant factor in why electric cars have not been popular with consumers.
