Mitsubishi Electric and the University of Tokyo Reveal New Mechanism for Enhancing Reliability

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 7 dicembre 2018

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) and the University of Tokyo announced today what they believe to be an all-new mechanism for enhancing the reliability of silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductor devices in power electronics systems. The new mechanism was realized as a result of confirming that sulfur beneath the interface of gate oxide and SiC captures some of the electrons conducting in the device’s current path, which increases the threshold voltage without changing the device’s on-resistance. The mechanism is expected to lead to more reliable power electronics equipment offering superior tolerance to electro-magnetic noise, which is known to cause system malfunctions.The research achievement was initially announced at The International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM2018) in San Francisco, California on December 3 (PST). Going forward, Mitsubishi Electric will continue refining the design and specifications of its SiC metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (SiC MOSFET) to further enhance the reliability of SiC power semiconductor devices.In their research, Mitsubishi Electric handled the design and fabrication of the SiC power semiconductor devices and analysis of sulfur’s capture of electrons in the current path, while the University of Tokyo handled measurement of electron scattering.Until now, it had been assumed that compared to conventional nitrogen or phosphorus, sulfur is not a suitable element to supply electrons for current conduction in SiC power semiconductor devices. Mitsubishi Electric and the University of Tokyo, however, focused on a different property of sulfur, namely, that sulfur in SiC inherently tends to capture electrons. Confirmation of this property was the basis of developing the new mechanism for SiC power semiconductor devices.
A proper quantity and distribution of sulfur in the mechanism’s SiC blocks electrons near the interface to a certain extent and thereby increases threshold voltage without impacting on-resistance. A suitable atom offering such an electrical property has been strongly sought to realize devices that are not prone to malfunctioning due to the effects of external electro-magnetic noise. The new mechanism is more reliable in this regard than conventional mechanisms and still retains low on-resistance.

World’s first electric sports car with 48 V low-voltage flow cell drive goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.4 seconds

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 18 febbraio 2017

quant-48voltGeneva Motor Show 7-19 March at the 2017 in hall 1, stand 1244. nanoFlowcell Holdings announces that it will present its latest advances in flow cell research at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show. Wrapped in the extravagant bodywork of an electric sports car that is utterly unique in the automotive industry, the QUANT 48VOLT, the company is showcasing the state-of-the-art in modern flow cell research. nanoFlowcell Holdings has succeeded in developing the first ever controllable flow cell that enables a standalone design for low-voltage electric drives without the need for heavy and expensive supercapacitors. And the 2+2-seater has no lack of power at its disposal – the 560 kW all-wheel drive delivers top speeds of up to 300 km/h. However, nanoFlowcell® 48VOLT is not just about powerful performance, but is also currently the lightest, safest, most environmentally compatible and most economical drive system available anywhere for electric vehicles.What makes the QUANT 48VOLT so special is the radical new design of its flow cell drive. The previous model, the QUANT FE, achieved its exceptionally sporty performance figures with a 700 V high-voltage drive system, whereby the QUANT 48VOLT runs entirely on low-voltage technology.To compete in acceleration and power output with vehicles powered by internal combustion engines, conventional electric vehicles need electric drive systems with a battery voltage of 400 V and more. In fact, the automotive industry is currently contemplating increasing the voltage in electric vehicles to 800 V in future.
quant-48volt1With the QUANT 48VOLT, nanoFlowcell Holdings questions this development alternative for electric-car technology and makes a globally unique statement: Flow cell technology in the QUANT 48VOLT delivers extreme performance (> 560 kW) at safe battery voltages (48 V). The key is the improved membrane structure of the nanoFlowcell® and the series connection of several flow cells. Over two-and-a-half years of development, the company successfully applied a specialist nano process to increase the size of the flow cell’s membrane surface in a way that multiplied the reaction surface by several orders of magnitude without compromising the compactness of the cells. Another innovation in the QUANT 48VOLT is the first series connection of six flow cells, enabling more bi-ION electrolyte to be discharged in a shorter space of time, thus allowing more energy to be generated. Furthermore, this new cell design has also been configured to enable the nanoFlowcell® to process a higher energy density in the bi-ION electrolyte solution (more than 600 Wh/l).The drive has also been completely redesigned. Used for the first time in the QUANT 48VOLT are innovative 45-phase low-voltage motors, which facilitate high power paired with minimised cross-sections in the electrical wiring. The special feature of these low-voltage motors is their solid aluminium net structure, which replaces the complicated copper windings used in conventional electric motors. This reduces the volume of the motor relative to its power output, while lowering weight and cost, and simplifying series production.Questions on the power of the new nanoFlowcell® 48VOLT flow cell drive are quickly answered: The 560 kW (4 x 140 kW) electric motors in the QUANT 48VOLT accelerate the electric sports car from zero to 100 km/h in 2.4 seconds and onwards with no loss of acceleration to a top speed of 300 km/h (electronically limited). The anticipated range is around 1,000 km – 25 percent more than that of the high-voltage version of the quant-48volt2QUANT FE sports car.The QUANT 48VOLT not only dispenses with the performance scepticism levelled at electric vehicles but also addresses the safety concerns surrounding them. With an electric drive that operates at low voltages across the board, the entire vehicle is inherently safe from an electrical standpoint. The way they are structured, the flow cell’s poles can be touched with no risk to life or limb. In contrast to conventional lithium-ion battery systems, there is absolutely no danger of road users or first responders suffering an electric shock from a nanoFlowcell 48VOLT system, even in the event of a serious accident. Furthermore, the nanoFlowcell® electrolyte liquids are neither flammable nor explosive.
Standardisation for industrial-scale production of the low-voltage parts for a nanoFlowcell® 48VOLT electric car also offers substantial benefits – no expensive measures relating to high-voltage safety have to be met, leading to significant cost reductions in development, production and maintenance. The technical servicing of a nanoFlowcell® 48VOLT electric car can, for instance, be conducted by technicians without specialist high-voltage training.The QUANT 48VOLT with nanoFlowcell® low-voltage drive is forward-looking electric mobility. The flow cell energy of the nanoFlowcell is not harmful either to health or the environment. In a low-voltage sports car like the QUANT 48VOLT, nanoFlowcell® 48VOLT technology demonstrates powerful performance and thus draws attention to what is currently the lightest, safest, most environmentally compatible and economical drive system there is for electric vehicles.

Drive Now Flexible London Carsharing Expand Fleet with 30 EVs

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 20 Maggio 2015

london-centralLondon, UK Today saw the launch of 30 BMW i3’s into London’s DriveNow carsharing service, the BMW / Sixt joint venture offering one-way flexible carsharing in the North London boroughs of Islington, Hackney, Haringey and Waltham Forest. Following their launch in December 2014, this takes their growing fleet total to 270 vehicles being used across the boroughs, offering residents and businesses a viable alternative to use of private cars with it’s on demand, pay per use model.
Today’s announcement means that over 11 percent of the fleet are full electric vehicles, as part of the exclusively BMW / Mini fleet of vehicles, making it London’s largest fleet of shared electric vehicles in a car club. Using the i3 will be a great move for the London carsharing customer, not least because of the emission free driving, but also the chance to test the new technology. The i3 is widely regarded as one of the most innovative EV’s on the market today, built with urban mobility at the heart of its development, and could become a truly important London carsharing vehicle as DriveNow grows. There are already over 10,000 members of the service in London alone, who will be given the opportunity to use the vehicles at competitive prices, in turn promoting the benefits of EVs to an increasing member base and local residents. There are several reasons that DriveNow have chosen to use the i3 in the carsharing fleet. As well as to improve the customer offer, with the new technology and highly acclaimed vehicles, which are also exempt from congestion charge (allowing more use cases), it is an opportunity to increase the marketing of the service, and gain operational insight into the use of EVs in their carsharing fleet. The marketing potential is not just related to the zero emissions from the vehicles and leveraging the new BMW model, but also to promote the benefits and potential application of electric vehicles to their customers of tomorrow. As more DriveNow customers understand how to use an EV in London, the more likely they will be to go and purchase one when they need their own private vehicle, is the theory, which may be more likely to be a BMW vehicle. It also educates Londoners on how to use the vehicles, a necessary intervention to drive behaviour change in cities to overcome range anxiety in particular, as well as operational concerns such as how to use the charging infrastructure. Given free driving credit will be offered to customers in return for charging the vehicles at the end of a rental, there is a good incentive to do so. Finally but importantly, it provides the opportunity to DriveNow to fully understand the operational pros and cons of using EVs in their flexible carsharing fleet. It is well documented that EVs currently cost more than the average combustion engine vehicle. Indeed, the list price of an entry level i3 vehicle at the time of writing is £30,980, compared to ~£20,000 for a BMW 1 series or £16,000 for a Mini Cooper (the other vehicles that make up the majority of the DriveNow fleet). Whilst this makes the business case more challenging, the main concern in London at present exists around the charging infrastructure. Of course, taking 4-6 hours to recharge wipes out a considerable proportion potential utilisation, but more importantly complications with the maintenance and contractual obligations in the transfer from TfL to private operator IER has led to as much as 35 percent of the charging stations unavailable due to faults. Given the fact that IER also operate carsharing firms in France, each London carsharing operator including DriveNow will be seeking clarifications from the local authorities as to the access and payment model to ensure a fair playing field is achieved. What is clear though from this announcement and the continuation of EV carsharing schemes around the globe, is that EV carsharing offers carsharing providers and particularly OEMs a great opportunity to leverage zero emission vehicles in high frequency urban use, and gives the city policy makers the potential to begin a shift from combustion engine to EV fleets by educating a wide pool of customers (carsharing members) with a small fleet of vehicles. Only a few months after launch, DriveNow have over 37 members to each of their vehicles, and exceed 100 members to vehicles in their developed market of Germany, thus using the opportunity to showcase their new EV to as many potential future EV customers as possible. With over 13 percent of global carsharing vehicles being electric already, Frost & Sullivan expect this to exceed 30 percent of carsharing fleets by 2020 given an increased entry from OEMs and support from city authorities to deliver EVs in carsharing fleets, such as parking/charging infrastructure incentives for example.
