International Conference : APE Automotive Power Electronics English

  • 1414 & 15 April 2015
  • Paris

Welcome

ape_2015_sia

 
In the past two years since our last APE, Power Electronics has become even more important growth domain in automotive industry. Electric, hybrid and electrified vehicles are a fact. The question is no longer when, but how will a car be equipped with a 48 V system, an electric booster, an energy recovery system, a powerful drive.

In addition, the world of electric vehicles has changed. Car manufacturers offer today cars, that are fun to drive, that give an equivalent value for the purchase price and that can assume performance and quality.
At the same time, the key enablers, power semiconductors and passives are progressing rapidly making an affordable business case for electric cars reachable.

In this environment, APE 2015 addressed first of all this market and technology evolution and then details in energy management, architecture, packaging, reliability, safety.
