Executive summary from SECs workshop about electromobility in Sweden

On the 27 th of June 2019 Swedish electromobility centre hosted a workshop on Electromobility in Sweden.

The conclusions are an overview result of the workshop and should be seen as a contribution to clarify the needs that exists within the field of electromobility, not as the views and standpoint of SEC. Many participants expressed that it was very useful to sit down and discuss the broader perspective and the role of SEC in that context. Many expressed the need of more time. This should be repeated. Important to discuss and learn from each other in the network.

90 participants were divided into ten groups for group discussions on the three topics. The groups were intentionally mixed with respect to competence and organizations in order to create dynamic discussions. A group leader was responsible for taking notes on a poster.
Results from the discussions were presented to the others as a poster presentation and finally a summary discussion in plenary was held.

Three topics were given:

• The broader perspective- Electromobility in Sweden
• SEC’s role as a leading network
• Specific projects we need to move forward.

PhD summer school: Components and Systems for Electromobility, Jönköping 2019

This year’s summer school resulted in a very intensive week in Jönköping packed with activities, mixing both theory and practical work. The participants have worked with different tools for the analysis and optimisation of electromobility systems, as well as the design and modelling of the most relevant components in electric vehicles: electrical machines, power converters and batteries. Additionally, various charging systems have been studied for the supply of electricity to vehicles.

As a practical exercise, the participants have been given the task of optimising the power system of a model electric vehicle to operate on a track equipped with an Electric Road System. During the first evening, the task was presented to the students, together with the necessary theory and models, and the teams were formed. The second evening was  practice session, so the teams could try different practical configurations. Finally, on the third evening all the teams competed in three different categories: fastest in 3 laps, fastest in 15 laps, and “last on the track”.
