INTRODUCTION

APE_SIA congress

 

Once again the Automotive Power Electronics Conference (APE) will be organized by the French Société des Ingénieurs de l'Automobile (SIA) in 2017.

Please make sure that you have saved the date in your agenda, because it will be once more a MUST for all experts in the field of electric mobility, mechatronics and more largely automotive power electronics.

In the past we had always around 250 to 300 participants, but we could imagine that this year it will be even more, as the subject is of highest interest in a totally changing automotive industry.

The first day (26.4.2017) will start with a focus on car manufacturers with obviously the French representatives of this profession, Renault and PSA. In the spirit of our cooperation with APE Japan we will also be welcoming Toyota, who by the way also produces in France.

Korea will be represented by Hyundai and from the US we are happy to welcome Faraday future to complete the picture.

Traditionally we will round up the view of power electronics users and system designers with the Tier 1 ecosystem around companies like Valeo, Bosch and AVL. Of particular interests are here subsystem aspects in combining electronics topology with energy source questions, for example fuel cells. Following this logic, the energy source discussion will lead to presentations on chargers, on-board, fast, wireless with representatives from industry and academics (IES Synergy, Infineon, TU Braunschweig, RWTH Aachen ISEA). Again as special guest we expect HONDA to talk about fuel cell aspects.

Then comes the second day. The market for automotive power electronics is accelerating and this will certainly have an influence on the business development of semiconductor suppliers. We expect some insight in this commercial view with an introduction into the market by IHS.

Faraday Future’s VP of powertrain development will then give a keynote on integrated power electronics for electric vehicles.

The acceleration of the market is due to several aspects appearing at the same time. Batteries are cheaper than expected even by the most optimistic previsions some years ago, charging infrastructure is arriving with big steps and then the power electronics semiconductors technology allows to drastically reduce size, weight and cost of the systems making the total cost of ownership of electric cars soon lower than the one of traditional vehicles.
