This PostDoc position targets the further development of advanced DC-DC power converters to be applied in an automotive environment, in a project supported by NWO and industrial partners.
In this project, in collaboration with a user committee of various industrial partners, recently developed converter technology will be used to improve the interface between a hydrogen fuel cell and a storage battery. Having a flexible power interface between these two subsystems allows exploiting their various advantages to the fullest. This project focuses on demonstrating and valorizing a technology that effectively allows combining a fuel cell and a battery pack, which results in a very high energy density and high peak power capability at low overall system cost. This results in electric vehicles with longer range, lower weight, ultrafast refueling/charging capabilities, at a low cost price.
The candidate will work on a prototype Dual-Active Bridge (DAB) Converter using Optimal Trajectory Control (OTC). This combination allows fast and robust control of an already proven converter concept. The main target of the project will be to make a considerable step in technical readiness level (TRL), to bring the technology closer to industrial application.
The candidate will be based in the Electromechanics and Power Electronics (EPE ) group in the Electrical Engineering department. There will be recurrent meetings planned with the industrial user committee.
Electromechanics and Power Electronics group
The EPE-group research activities span all facets of Electromechanics and Power Electronics, in particular advanced mechatronics systems with magnetically levitated linear and planar actuators, multi-level power converters and high-precision power amplifiers. The EPE group has a state-of-the-art 650m2 laboratory with multiphysical measurements (electrical, magnetic, and thermal):
It is a world leading group in the field of modeling, control and design techniques for power electronics as applied in high-precision and automotive environments. The group carries out both fundamental and applied research and has many research collaborations with industrial partners. The group consists of 50 people of which 20 PhD students, 5 PostDocs, and 4 PDEng students.
