Seminar to focus on the current state and use of magnetic materials in hybrid and electric vehicles

July 4, 2012

A one day seminar on the current state and use of magnetic materials in hybrid and electric vehicles will take place on 11th July 2012 in Birmingham, UK.

Organised jointly by the UK Magnetics Society and the IET, the event will take place at the TRW Conekt Technical Centre in Solihull.

The efficient use of magnetic materials will be at the forefront of the development of the next generation of electric and hybrid vehicles, state the organisers. The conflicting pressures of high performance and cost sensitivity require a detailed understanding of material characteristics and their influence on overall system design.

Existing EV and HEV systems will be considered and future performance increase opportunities discussed.

A number of Hybrid Vehicles and / or Electric Vehicles will be on display for the delegates during the day.
