Research & Development

We at inQbe, have an active wing of Research and Development engaged in developing new and innovative products and improving existing products, headed by experienced technocrats. We are in continuous efforts to develop creative products which will be useful for the social welfare. 

Power Electronics Research and Development

To reach the EV Everywhere Grand Challenge goal, inQbe is supporting research and development (R&D) to lower the cost and improve the performance of power electronics in electric drive vehicles.
Vehicle power electronics primarily process and control the flow of electrical energy in hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles, including plug-in electric vehicles. They also control the speed of the motor, and the torque it produces. Finally, power electronics convert and distribute electrical power to other vehicle systems such as heating and ventilation, lighting, and infotainment. Power electronics components include inverters, DC/DC converters, and chargers (for plug-in electric vehicles).

INVERTERS

An inverter is needed in an electric drive system to convert the DC energy from a battery to AC power to drive the motor. An inverter also acts as a motor controller and as a filter to isolate the battery from potential damage from stray currents.

VTO's research and development in power electronics focuses on improving inverters. Researchers are working to reduce inverter volume by a third, reduce part count by integrating functionality, and reduce cost.

Today's vehicle power electronics utilize silicon-based semiconductors. However, wide band gap (WBG) semiconductors are more efficient and can withstand higher temperatures than silicon components. The ability to operate at higher temperatures can decrease system costs by reducing the requirements for complex thermal management systems. 

Other research on inverters focuses on new designs that can reduce part counts and enable modular, scalable components.

DC/DC CONVERTERS

DC/DC converters are used to increase (boost) or decrease (buck) battery voltages (typically 200 V to 450 V) to accommodate the voltage needs of motors and other vehicle systems. If the vehicle electric motor design requires higher voltage, such as an internal permanent magnet motor, it will require a boost DC/DC converter. If a component requires lower voltage, such as most vehicle systems (lighting, infotainment), it will require a buck DC/DC converter that reduces the voltage to the 12V to 42V level. inQbeis supporting research to improve converters by developing next generation topologies which are more efficient, reduce part count, and enable modular, scalable devices.

ON-BOARD CHARGERS

Onboard vehicle chargers convert AC energy from the electrical grid to DC energy required to recharge batteries. Battery chargers for plug-in electric vehicles are currently based on proven, traditional, high-frequency charger circuits and can be located either on the vehicle or off board, as part of a DC fast charger. Additionally, researchers are investigating on-board concepts that integrate the charging function into the existing power electronics and utilize the inductance of the electric motor for recharging. This strategy will lower the part count and reduce the cost, weight, and volume of existing chargers. As with other power electronics, chargers must have a small physical footprint, be lightweight, and offer high efficiency and high reliability at low cost.

Electric Drive Systems Research and Development

Electric drive technologies, including the electric motor, inverter, boost converter, and on-board charger, are essential components of hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) propulsion systems. inQbe research and development (R&D) to reduce the cost and improve the performance of innovative electric drive devices, components, and systems. For a general overview of electric drive vehicles, see the Alternative Fuels Data Center's pages on Hybrid and Plug-in Electric Vehicles.

Robotics Research

The field of robotics has been undergoing a major change from manufacturing applications to entertainment, home, rehabilitation, search and rescue, and service applications. Although robots seem to possess fantastic skills in science fiction and movies, most people would be surprised to learn how much remains to be accomplished to provide today's robots with the ability to do relatively simple tasks. Autonomous robots are only able to complete very simple tasks within limited environmental conditions. Humans can be incorporated to teleoperate or supervise robots, but as the robot complexity increases so does the human's workload. Robotics requires research in many areas that include hybrid systems, embedded systems, sensory fusion, distributed artificial intelligence, computer vision, machine learning, human-machine interaction, localization, planning, navigation, etc. This large field provides ample research problems.

Internet of Things (IoT)

Innovators are no longer limited to just the devices they have in front of them. Thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT) they can now take advantage of what an entire network of interconnected devices can do together.
IoT is the inter-networking of “smart” devices, such as those used in homes, offices, and vehicles. These devices are embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity, and can collect and exchange data. This comprehensive network opens up an endless possibility of opportunities for technological innovation, which scientists and engineers in numerous areas of R&D and technology have already taken advantage of.
