Call for Projects
– Spring 2023

SEC is a node for research and deve-lopment of electric transport and charging infrastructure. In this call we finance projects with time frame of 15 June 2023 – 31 December 2026.

SEC at E-Charge meeting in Helsingborg

The E-charge project, where SEC is part, held consortium meeting in Helsingborg in March 2023.

SEC’s Annual Report 2022

The SEC annual report is now available for download. It gives an overview of what has been going on in the centre throughout 2022.


Intelligent Vehicles and Systems develops methods and algorithms, which are adopted and utilized in hybrid (and)or electric vehicle setting by exploiting dynamic models, computational methods, and simulation techniques. Our main topics are mathematical modelling, dynamic simulation, performance analysis, control design and optimization.


Theme Electrical machines, drive systems and charging is a competence base for technologies related to electric energy transfer and conversion between the electric utility grid and the wheels of electric vehicles. This includes charging equipment, the traction system, and auxiliary systems on board the vehicles.


Energy for electromobility is stored in electrochemical cells, such as batteries or fuel cells. For sustainable storage, economically and environmentally viable cells with long lifetime need to be developed, with even better performance than today’s materials and systems. Therefore, we focus on optimizing the key factors preventing ageing and sustaining health of the energy storage.


Theme area Electromobility in society investigates the electrified vehicle from a societal and environmental perspective. The research gather data and analyzes drive patterns, different actors influence, governance and other requirements for vehicles and infrastructure, for different types of transport services. 


In the theme area Interaction between vehicles and grid we investigate the challenges and possibilities with an electrified transport sector. The research investigates how the electric power system is affected and how it can be controlled. It also looks into how the transports acts as a load; how much power that is required and when and where and what requirements the transports will have on the power system and vice versa. 

Our centre of excellence transfer spearhead research to its everyday use in society.

Nils-Gunnar Vågstedt, PhD Chairman of SEC´s Program council and Head of Innovation R&D, Scania


Are you a PhD student in the field of emobility? The Swedish Electromobility Centre’s doctoral student network is open for all PhD students in Sweden who study aspects of electrification and hybridization of vehicles. The network is an arena for collaboration for PhD students and stimulates their interaction with the Swedish automotive industry.
