MEDEE and its partners work for the industry of the future !

On Friday 1st December 2017, the MEDEE academic partners presented the first results of the CE2I project “Intelligent Integrated Energy Converter”. No less than sixty enthusiasts (including a lot of MEDEE members) attended this seminar and took part in the debate.

Among with :

  • Laboratories :L2EP, LSEE, IMT Lille Douai, LAMIH, GREEN laboratory of Nancy
  • Industrialists : EDF R&D Modelling, the motor manufacturer Jeumont Electric, Amphénol-Auxel (expert in busbar), Thyssen Krupp Electrical Steel specializing in high performance steels, the SNCF Railway Systems and Technology Department…
  • Power Electronics startups and SMEs such as FL Power, AF Thermacore Engineering, a superconductivity specialist Super Ox…

The Motor of the Future: what technological locks ?

During a design or innovation phase, any industrialist is confronted with one of the technological locks:

  • compactness of the energy actuator {rotating machine and converter},
  • structural and functional reliability,
  • thermal management following the rise in frequency of power electronics components,
  • Virtual prototyping of the converter to limit the design of real prototypes.

This seminar was a moment dedicated to mixing industry and research, detecting common problems related to emerging standards, and raising collaborative R&D

projects!
