Electric Vehicle Charging Based on Solid-State Circuit Breaker Technology
Presenter: Binesh Kumar, Atom Power Inc., Charlotte, NC, USA
Date: Thursday, March 2, 2023, Time 12:00 pm EST
Abstract: EV Charging infrastructure has become one of the biggest barriers to EV adoption and to meeting global decarbonization goals. There needs to be an overhaul in the approach of EV charging to support wide-scale charging infrastructure and to ensure future scalability, safety, security, and availability needs are met. In this webinar, we will cover some of the fundamentals of EV Charging and how solid-state circuit breaker technologies can help overcome the challenges associated with it and to provide a scalable EV Charging infrastructure.
Binesh is a Technology and Engineering leader, who works at Atom Power Inc, in Charlotte, North Carolina. He holds a Master’s in Electrical Engineering and his areas of expertise are in Product Development in the Power and Energy Domain. He has a special interest in clean energy, smart grid and distributed energy resources. He is an active IEEE senior member and serves in several leadership roles within IEEE.
Disruptive Technological Developments Needed to Scale Up Zero-Emission Aviation Beyond 2035
Presenter: Jonas Kristiansen Nøland, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway
Date: Tuesday, March 28, 2023, Time 9:00 am EDT
This webinar is sponsored by the IEEE Power Electronics Society Technical Committee on Aerospace Power
Abstract: The presentation will explore the next wave of disruptive technological developments needed to scale up zero-emission aviation beyond 2035. It will include major breakthroughs needed in terms of reducing the voltage level while increasing system-level power density and overall efficiency. Moreover, the webinar will explain how next-generation H2-powered aircraft could take advantage of onboard cryogenic fuels to cool the electrical components, enabling a cryo-electric superconducting drivetrain that could lead to extraordinary performance.
Jonas Kristiansen Nøland (Senior Member, IEEE) was born in Drammen, Norway, in 1988. He received an M.Sc. degree in electric power engineering from the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2013, and a Ph.D. degree in engineering physics from Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden, in 2017. Since 2018, he has been an Associate Professor with the Department of Electric Energy, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway. His current research interests include superconducting machines for aircraft propulsion and transportation electrification in general.
Dr. Nøland also serves as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion and the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics.
