Fraunhofer IISB takes a leading position internationally in the field of power electronics for electromobility. This is evident from the numerous development projects with all large automotive manufacturers and suppliers. Many of the results have gained international attention.
We permanently strive to open up new applications and functionalities. The grid integration of electric vehicles for instance will gain more and more importance in the future. For avionic applications the new possibilities of modern power electronics will pave the way towards the “more electric aircraft”. This means powering many more actuators electrically in order to improve the overall fuel economy, and to reduce the maintenance efforts associated with hydraulic systems.
