EMPIR project ‘Metrology for inductive charging of electric vehicles’ (16ENG08, MICEV) is working to accurately measure the efficiency of inductive power transfer, and provide the means to reliably demonstrate compliance with existing safety standards for human exposure.
The project will also develop the measurement tools needed in the development of high-efficiency couplers needed for inductive charging of electric vehicles.
These results will support safe and efficient charging of low carbon electric vehicles.
The training course
Results from the project will be presented at the one-day training course, which includes the following sessions:
- IPT systems, technologies, and standards
- Modelling the electrical system (converters)
- Electrical measurement and efficiency
- Numerical dosimetry, exposure in real cases and uncertainty in numerical dosimetry
The course is targeted at researchers, test laboratories, stakeholders, national authorities and industry, with particular reference to instruments and car manufacturers. Course content is based on the expertise of the project partners and will include new achievements carried out during the first two years of the project.
Participants will acquire new information regarding the measurement and the estimation of the efficiency in wireless charging vehicle systems. The most recent dosimetric calculation techniques and results of human exposure to magnetic fields in a real case will also be included.
Registration is free of charge.
This EMPIR project is co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the EMPIR Participating States.
